This happens very usually. I am calling a friend and he / she has a caller tune ( or hello tune ) but, for about 5 to 10 seconds, what I get to hear is their service provider advertising their Hello Tunes .
Most of the times, the person at the other end answers the call before I start hearing the song. So, are you paying for that advertisement ? Really ?
I haven’t collected enough information to confirm if this is only on any particular network. Do you guys know about this advertisement ? Is it on all circles / states ? ( I experience this in Karnataka circle )
You’ll need a 64-bit build environment and the Java 1.6 to get the ball rolling, and you shouldn’t expect all your hardware to work. At the moment, only wireless and audio are working — but that’s certainly enough to let you play around with Gingerbread and enjoy the experience a little.
Head on over todeveloper cwhuang’s site [machine translated] for more details, as well as the Git repo link you’ll need to pull down his Gingerbread x86 code.
Airtel onÂ MondayÂ announced their 3G service in Karnataka Circle, so Bangalore will be first to go 3G on Airtel’s network. Data plan prices below. ( as on January 25th 2011, these may change pretty often )
Airtel 3G Data Prices
Rs.Â 9 for 10 MB, validity 1 day
Rs.Â 45 for 40 MB Validity 3 days
Rs.Â 60 for 65 MB, validity 3 days
Rs.Â 103 for 100 MB, validity 30 days
Rs.Â 200 for 250 MB, validity 30 days
Rs.Â 450 for 600 MB, validity 30 days
Rs.Â 750 for 2 GB, validity 30 days.
Apart form the above Plans, Airtel also launched on Heavy Users Plan atÂ Rs.Â 650 which provide 1.25 GB free data usage. After Free usage all 3G data access will be 10p/MB up to 14 GB and after 14 GB the Speed cap of 128 Kbps will be applicable.
Looks like Docomo has reduced prices in Karnataka Circle after Airtel launched 3G. I am not sure when they dropped prices. The latest prices on their website looks lower than what it used to be when they launched 3G. I had bought a 3G SIM from Docomo when I bought the new Android phone. I was not so impressed. Waiting for some feedback on Airtel 3G speed and service.
And anyone heard of a company called Vodafone ? do they have plans of offering 3G sometime soon ?
After writing a lot about Android and Android devices, I finally bought an Android phone. I was waiting for an affordable model here in India. Finally found my love in LG Optimus One. It came with Android 2.2 and I am waiting for the next update to 2.3, Ginger Bread.
A fast moving gadget, and fastest ever in LG’s history.
Price was 13250 when bought ( a few days after it was announced here in India Â I couldn’t wait more ) it might have come done by now .. may be ?
I am in love with the android experience .. may be because I am biased but this is awesome. There are a lot of ways for you to waste time, like say the Angry Bird game ? The Talking Tom app a funny cat that repeats everything you say in a funny tone and there are a lot more.
The performance is good for its price range andÂ processorÂ power. Camera works good in day light, may experience issues taking photos when light is less because there is no flash. The photo in this post was taken with this phone, from Bangalore. ( uploaded to my dropbox folder from phone ) LG is doing some good promotion here.
Apps I have installed

3.2 inch TFT Capacitive display
320 x 480 pixels resolution

Do you need more feedback or information on this phone ? Ask me in comments !!
May be adobe is scared about Apple kicking it out of the web by rejecting flash and refusing to load flash on any of its recent products like iPhones and iPads. Adobe is now working on various other web related projects that may keep them hold their ground on the web 3.0 and further.
HTML5 videos are supposed to be future of the web without the flash. Looks like along with HTML5 video related research, Adobe has a lot of interest in Webkit and especially typography on the web using html5. I am impressed with what they have come up with. Watch this video and I am sure you also will love it. It will be interesting to watch how Adobe places itself in the web related technologies market in the future now that the dominance of flash is questioned.
Watch this demo video of Qwiki and let me know what you think ! I loved the part where qwiki gives daily briefing in the morning. When will you come to Android phones qwiki ? Btw, I got an invite to qwiki through techcrunch !
