More on Wi Max, knowing is being able to understand where the future is and why companies make apparently "Stupid" decisions
WiMAX is a wireless digital communications system, also known as IEEE 802.16, that is intended for wireless "metropolitan area networks". WiMAX can provide broadband wireless access (BWA) up to 30 miles (50 km) for fixed stations, and 3 - 10 miles (5 - 15 km) for mobile stations. In contrast, the WiFi/802.11 wireless local area network standard is limited in most cases to only 100 - 300 feet (30 - 100m).
With WiMAX, WiFi-like data rates are easily supported, but the issue of interference is lessened. WiMAX operates on both licensed and non-licensed frequencies, providing a regulated environment and viable economic model for wireless carriers.
WiMAX can be used for wireless networking in much the same way as the more common WiFi protocol. WiMAX is a second-generation protocol that allows for more efficient bandwidth use, interference avoidance, and is intended to allow higher data rates over longer distances.
The IEEE 802.16 standard defines the technical features of the communications protocol. The WiMAX Forum offers a means of testing manufacturer's equipment for compatibility, as well as an industry group dedicated to fostering the development and commercialization of the technology.
WiMax.com provides a focal point for consumers, service providers, manufacturers, analysts, and researchers who are interested in WiMAX technology, services, and products. Soon, WiMAX will be a very well recognized term to describe wireless Internet access throughout the world.
WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology aimed at providing wireless data over long distances in a variety of ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called WirelessMAN. WiMAX allows a user, for example, to browse the Internet on a laptop computer without physically connecting the laptop to a router, hub or switch via an Ethernet cable. The name WiMAX was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformance and interoperability of the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL."
3G for Iphone:
Emailing works well on edge, 3G would mean a lot of battery power being used, I noticed after several weeks of practical use that the easy way you connect on open WI FI networks at home office school or public places do not make you feel you are missing something in terms of browsing. When you are out driving do you really want to browse the internet ? To do that you need to sit in a comfortable place and focus on the web.
I think the compromise is good and I believe that in the Apple tradition of implementing leading edge standards it would be best to go straight to WI MAX rather than 3G which is a standard that after all has not really delivered what it promised to begin with.
Video calling is NOT widely used and it slows down a lot when the cells are crowded with users.
This demonstrates that the N95 is a phone with a lot of features, but kind of over engineered, the good thing about the Iphone which I like more and more as I use it for several weeks now is the compromise of good performance and ease of use. Sure it could have a few more thigns, but practical terms it delivers a very good phone service, email, and internet browsing with the excellent user interface of OSX, and with the upcoming software update many of the missing things could very well become a reality, like full bluetooth file transfer and video camera.
N95 very good phone :

More N95 Problems !! Fedup now :-(
im now on my 3rd Nokia N95 from the 02 network
(as you probably all know from my previous postings)
the first 2 handsets had high pitch whining noise and awful sliders which were wobbling on the right hand side, appaulling workmanship, i dont even know how they were allowed to leave the Nokia Factory like this!
maybe the workers were all drunk or something?
it isnt only me thats complained of these faults, check all the other forums about the N95!
anyway, my 3rd handset has been working ok
(or so i thought)
everything was working fine, no wobbly slider, no whiny noise..
but about 3 - 4 times per day as of 3 days ago, the phone just restarts itself when it`s just sat there!!!
WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING ?
have i now got to send this CRAP handset back aswell?
i dont want to drive 20 miles to nearest Nokia Service Centre, WHY should i ????
i also left my house this morning at 5.30am to take a friend to the Airport, the phone was unplugged from the Charger with full battery life, i used the N95`s sat nav to get there and back, its now 9.35am and i have 2 bars left on the battery life!!
truly appauling if you ask me
Ufax u worte you can not send songs, pictures, and files from iphone. Can you please tell us can we recieve songs, pictures, and files via BT in iphone Thanx
I just saw the video of the iPhone and I have to say that... is an amasing phone!!!!!! best interface i've ever seen, the mediaplayer is awesome and the best picture viewer ever. i've always been a Nokia Adict and I'll always be, but we'll have to see next iphone to come with all the features incorporated and all problems fixed, it's going to be a new era, that's for sure. bye.
is their any defference between firmware 1.1.1 and 1.0.2 and 1.1.2 ?
what is it ?
I am not impressed with this phone I think it has been mis sold I think it is poo poo ps can you use this phone if you have no thumbs??
Why are there no buttons on the i phone and can I share music files with other people
Iphone has a built in PDF viewer you simply get your mail tap on the PDF attachment and see it on the screen, you can easily zoom in and see all of the details....
i wanted to ask ..goes the iphone have a 3rd party app. for viewing documents and pdf files
The phone is brilliant, battery life is very good, design of the phone is excellent and it the best video player and music player i've ever seen on.
Ok the phone doesn't have 3g but it's got edge and wifi.
Good thing about the iphone is that apple can turn the negatives into positives when the iphone2 comes out
It's apples 1st year in the mobile industry so it's bound to get better.
It's all big competition but it surprises me that people try and compare the iphone with the n95 because the n95.
Sorry i forgot to say it doesnt even have MMS..it cant send picture msgs period!
Seriously i thot the iphone was the next best thing and i wanted to get it badly..so after reviewing it very well it showed me truely that beauty is only skin deep...i went to the apple store to test it out..the interface is the best ive used and trust me i am a seasoned phone user cos ive used every single type and format of phones...apart from a wonderful interface good looks , superb music functionality..how can a phone in this day and age have a camera that doesnt record videos..it does just it ..shoot pictures and nothing else no zoom no editing no nothing..how can a phone that good not be a ble to send files via bluetooth...if i want i cant send songs, documents ,pictures , anything..practically useless..they shouldnt even have put the bluetooth then..the iphone battery is locked up in a case that cant be opened why? so you would always go back to apple to get it repaired if your phone goes bad(stupid)..the phone has no drafts, outbox of any sort..let me see..your typing a msg ,you receive a call..voila your msg has gone up in flames no way to save in the outbox it doesnt have..you cant multiple select contacts to send a msg to(you cant send msgs to more than one person at a time) imagine xmas or thanksgiving then.... i Got a HTC tytn 2 and have never looked back..All in all the iphone is a breakthrough but remember to try one 1st before getting it..again beauty is only skin deep..
again , hey Jack ;
how can you compare SE W950i or this Apple iPhone ( with slim and fashionable design ) , with Nokia's fat & heavy smartphones ?!
I think , " SonyEricsson W950i " & " Apple iPhone " ; are the best smartphones on the market !
this phone has no business applications ?
where from i can have business aplications for this phone ???
