The Good Old Days: Mobile Phones That Were The Best In Those Days

Published

on

Sony Ericson

Sony once held some of the most valuable brand names in tech. The company practically invented the portable music player, the legendary Walkman.

Also, its first digital camera came out in 1996, the Cyber-shot. However, the company didn’t handle the transition to mobile phones very well.

The company – or rather its 50/50 partnership with Ericsson – did try to adapt the Sony branding to mobile phones. This gave us handsets like the Sony Ericsson W800, which had “Walkman” written with large letters on its side.

Not just that, it had a button with Walkman logo that launched the music player, which could handle MP3 and AAC files. This was still considered an impressive feat when the phone came out in 2005. It wasn’t the only music-focused phone of that year, however. The Motorola ROKR E1, the iTunes phone, was its chief rival.

Comparing the two is interesting as it shows a difference in approach. Sony (Ericsson) gave you a 512MB Memory Stick card, a USB cable and Disc2Phone software. You buy your music from the store, rip it and transfer it to the phone.

In contrast, Motorola expected you to load tracks from your iTunes collection – the iTunes Store opened its virtual doors a couple of years prior and supported the iPod. The iPod did for digital music what the Walkman did for the cassette tape.

As a big name in audio hardware and owner of Sony Music (actually a 50/50 partner in Sony BMG in 2005), the Japanese giant was perfectly positioned to capture the mobile music market. Walkman phones were half of the equation, an online music store would have been the other half, but that never materialized. And ripping CDs and transferring the songs to your phone was always going to lose to digital downloads.

With no cap on how many songs you could load on the phone, the W800 had a clear advantage over the Motorola (the ROKR E1 was limited to 500 tracks). The 512MB that came in the box could fit a lot of music, but you could go wild and get a 2GB Memory Stick – that’s over 700 songs on average (assuming 128Kbps files, which isn’t unreasonable for the time). It lacked stereo speakers, though, and no standard audio jack (the Moto had a 2.5mm jack).

This Is The Only Fastest Way To Save Your Phone When It Falls Into Water

Published

on

Have you ever jumped with your phone in your pocket into a pool of water? Have you ever lost your phone when the dishes or the laundry are being done? Or have you been caught without an umbrella in heavy rain?
Indeed, water can destroy not only the physical components of your phone, but you can also lose your images and documents. Do not think a lot if you ever go through any of these circumstances. We’re going to cover some practical stuff you should do in this article should your computer fall into the water.

Of course, the first thing you have to do is quickly get it out of the water. That’s because you’re going to get more water into your phone if you don’t do that, and the more water, the more dangerous your mobile will be.

You have to turn the phone off then. Your phone will often turn off when it gets in contact with the water. Your phone will undergo what we call short circulation if it does not, and you do not do this, and it will increase the harm to the mechanisms inside. Nonetheless, if the power button is not working and your phone is not “in-built”, immediately pull the battery.

Removing the sim card, memory card, headphones and all other peripherals is the next thing you can do. Also, you can remove the case or cover of the handset. These items can trap moisture and can avoid or decrease damage to the phone by removing it. (Remember to use the sim card, memory card, headphones, and peripherals to clean and dry)

Dry a cloth or a towel with your cell. This will just take care of the moisture on the phone’s surface. Go ahead and shake the unit to extract the droplets that are trapped inside (be sure not to drop the phone when doing this). Now, put your phone in a plastic bag and use a vacuum cleaner to suck the air out. This would suck the liquid right out of the device’s inner parts.

The next thing you can do is to put the phone, such as a bowl of rice, in an absorbent material. It is understood that a bowl of uncooked rice draws the remaining moisture away from the phone and flows into the rice. For a minimum of 2 days, place your phone in a container or bowl of rice. After 2 days, it is best for you to wait and let it dry.

You can turn the phone on after all the above operation. If it doesn’t work, then it usually means it is hurt. And if it turns on, chances are high that it may not be exactly as it used to be.

Now it’s time for your voice to be heard. What other stuff would you do to save your phone from getting wet? In the comments, let us know your thoughts.
