In another typical news day we are told that a "Major New Study Reveals Cellphone Radiation Causes Cancer." If, like most people, you react to headlines, your first (perhaps only) thought is "HOLY SHIT!!!". The news story begins with: >The $25 million study, conducted over two and a half years by the U.S. National Toxicology Program, found significantly higher instances of two types of malignant tumors on male rats exposed to the same radio-frequency radiation currently used in the United States. Hmmm. Sounds pretty serious. But track down the sources and you discover that 1. The radiation used in the …

While the News International [phone hacking scandal](http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/phone-hacking) that saw the demise of the News of the World newspaper cannot have escaped your attention in the US or UK, news from India concerning the latest 'tumble and clone' developments could leave the mobile phone calls of more than just celebrities at risk of hacking. If you thought it was bad enough that UK newspapers have apparently been hacking into the mobile telephone conversations of celebrities and others 'in the news' in order to gain a competitive advantage when breaking news stories, then wait until you hear the latest [reports](http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/todays-paper/article3010105.ece) to come …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]16523[/ATTACH]Skype, the Luxemborg-based internet video phone service, filed for its initial public offering (IPO) on Monday (August 9) to list on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The value was tentatively set at $100 million, a number analysts suggest is merely a rough estimate set to help the Securities and Exchange Commission calculate a filing fee. They have yet to release a sales date or price. The filings reported that in 2010, Skype has already generated more than $406 million from its over 560 million registered users, up 41% year-over-year. These numbers are staggering considering that only 6% of its users actually …

Kin 1 is shaped like a hockey puck. Kin 2 looks more like a conventional smart phone (but it's not). The only thing these phones appear to have going for them is a nice keyboard. The Kin 1 has an awkward shape. The shared interface is ugly and confusing and as of now (the release announcement), they have no SDK for building additional Apps. It connects to Facebook and MySpace (MySpace? Really?!) and of course connects to Zune music services, but it doesn't …

Microsoft and Apple haven't had a great time of it recently with mobile consumers. For Microsoft, the market roundly rejected the Kin, which just about anyone who follows the cell phone market knew would happen. Meanwhile, Apple is taking it on the chin about how they are handling the iPhone 4 antenna debacle and there is clearly growing discontent among consumers. The big difference here, however is the sales picture. Apple, for whatever reason, continues to live off its reputation and sell iPhones hand over fist, while Microsoft's mobile strategy continues to flounder.

There are many interesting new products that get released to the masses at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but few of them are as cheap as the Vodafone 150. Being dubbed the most affordable ultra low cost handset from Vodafone ever, the 150 is intended for those emerging markets where low cost devices can have the most significant and positive of social impacts, namely India, Turkey and across Africa. The intention being to enable millions of people in these markets to have the opportunity of sharing in the benefits of mobile technology for the very first time. And how …

The trend in recent years has been from smartphones to get bigger screens and slimmer profiles, with everyone pretty much following where the Apple iPhone leads them. Until now, that is, with Nokia breaking free from the constraints of a huge touchscreen and apparently opting for a tiny candy-bar design instead. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting what looks like being the world's smallest smartphone: the Nokia C5. The folks over at DailyMobile are claiming something of a scoop with what appear to be a whole bunch of [URL="http://dailymobile.se/2010/02/03/nokia-c5-leaked-pictures-of-a-new-symbian-s60-device-from-nokia/"]leaked photos[/URL] of the as yet unreleased Symbian S60 candy-bar smartphone, the Nokia C5. …

According to a new survey of London taxi drivers, an average of 10,000 mobile phones are left behind by customers every single month. If that total is not staggeringly high enough, you can top it up with another 1000 iPods and memory sticks if you like. December is the worse month for losing a mobile phone in a taxi though, most likely down to people having their hands full of bags of Xmas shopping as they rush to jump out. Steve McMenara, a spokesperson for TAXI, which is a magazine published by the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association, said: "It’s a …

Word came out yesterday that [URL="http://money.cnn.com/2009/07/23/news/companies/ATT_earns.reut/"]AT&T didn't have a great quarter[/URL] (which ironically sent the stock price soaring because it wasn't as bad as expected). This loss seemed perplexing to me given that Apple reported its numbers earlier this week (as I wrote in [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4560.html"]Lauren's Wrong: People Definitely Want Macs[/URL]), and Apple reported selling more than 5 million iPhones in the quarter. With AT&T as the exclusive distributor of iPhones in the US and the beneficiaries of at least part of those huge numbers, you would think they would have had themselves a nice little quarter too, riding along on …

Mac sales were down, perhaps not as much as expected but still down, and more surprising, the previously recession-proof iPod sales were falling. Could it be that the economy was catching up with Apple?

Looks like Google could be in deep water, along with the Open Handset Alliance and some 40 or so companies, over an apparent trademark infringement. Now you might think that there had been some pretty heavyweight due diligence before Google and the OHA determined to call the open source mobile phone operating system. And indeed, it would seem that Google had indeed made all the right noises to the US Patent and Trademark Office but unfortunately the PTO refused the trademark application after it determined the mark had been granted to a software development outfit by the name of Android …

I hope I am not the only person who has occasionally thought that his mobile phone bears more than a passing resemblance to something straight out of Star Trek. Not being a Trekkie myself I cannot say whether it is a communicator or one of those handheld medical scanners, a tricorder is it? Anyway, one thing is for sure, and that is that mobile phones are getting a lot more Star Trek these days. And probably none more so than the Nokia 5800 limited edition which is being launched in the UK on May 1st, which should come as no …

That is the somewhat surprising number that Juniper Research reckons smartphone sales will hit by 2013, despite the impact of the global financial crisis on the mobile handset market.

The freely downloadable study '[URL="http://www.juniperresearch.com"]Next Generation Smartphones: Players, Opportunities & Forecasts 2008-2013[/URL]' suggests that annual sales of smartphones will rise by some 95 percent to more than 300 million between now and 2013.

New laws have just come into force in the UK which apply to motorists who cause death as a result of careless driving. The Road Safety Act 2006 has been changed to incorporate distractions such as changing the radio station, applying make-up or eating a sandwich while behind the wheel. It has also been beefed up so that whereas last week someone found guilty of the offense would have been facing a maximum UKP £5000 fine and some driving license penalty points, this week they are facing up to five years in jail.
