Microsoft Releases Windows 7 Mobile Operating System Titled: Windows Phone 7

It’s no secret that Windows Mobile has been falling behind. This is greatly evident in the considerable amount of market-share that they have conceded to their competitors. According to comScore, Microsoft holds now just 18% of the Mobile OS market. To put this in perspective, Apple holds ~ 25% of the market, and Rimm has a market share of ~ 42%.

Perhaps what is most alarming to Microsoft is how much market-share it’s new OS competitor, Google, has been able to take. Google’s new Android operating system already holds a 5% market share, doubling from 2.5% the previous quarter.

Microsoft has killed Windows 7 Mobile and has released Windows Phone 7. Microsoft released its plan to provide over 30 new smartphones that will utilize its new Windows 7 Phone OS. These smartphones will be available in over 20 countries by the end of the year. United States providers include Sprint/Nextel, AT&T, and Verizon.

Windows Phone 7 sports a radical design change. Its new design is a copy of the Zune HD interface and is suppose to include the needs of both business and pleasure. It will incorporate the growing use of Social Networking by offering many new internal features.

Additionally Microsoft promises to be stricter on what phones/hardware they will allow to use their new mobile operating system, thus dramatically decreasing quality-related problems.

I hope they do well with this redesign… they sure as heck need it. We will try to review this operating system for you sometime! For now you can view the rumored features of Windows Phone 7.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for iPhone/iPod Touch Review

Recently, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was released for the iPhone. I know what you’re probably thinking — It must be pretty bad…a GTA game on the iPhone? On the contrary, they did an AMAZING job! It’s only $10, but offers much of the same fun found on the DS version of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. The music isn’t as good, but that’s not a problem since you can create your own in-game radio stations using the music that’s on your iPod Touch or iPhone. Pretty neat! For the full review, a description, and a screenshot of the game, read on!



GSM Call Intercepting/Hacking Software Released

I’ve been meaning to post about this since the 28th, but GSM encryption has been cracked. A short excerpt from This Article mentions the possible implications of this and also mentions that an open source software for exercising this has been released.

On Sunday 27th of December at the 26th Chaos Communication Congress (26C3) in Berlin, security researchers published open source instructions for cracking the A5/1 mobile telephony encryption algorithm and for building an IMSI catcher that intercepts mobile phone communication. The Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) standard for digital mobile phone networks, which is used by around four billion people in 200 countries, is quite insecure, explained cryptography expert Karsten Nohl in front of a large audience of hackers. While this has been known in academic circles since 1994, the evidence now produced leaves “no more room for playing hide and seek” said Nohl.
