Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:13 CET under 01 - General News

Following Deutsche Telekom's and Evernote's earlier cooperation in Germany, where German T-Mobile customers received free 12 months Evernote Premium features, the to companies just announced that they are expanding their partnership to cover the 12 markets in the Deutsche Telekom's footprint in continental Europe. I don't have to explain you Evernote at all but Evernote allows to take notes, clip webpages, snap articles, create to-do lists and record audio using mobile phones. The service, which is globally available anyway, is now also available in all 12 Deutsche Telekom markets where customers, who activate from now until October 2, can redeem six months of Evernote Premium by downloading via online app stores or by purchasing a new Android device that already has the application preloaded.

APPROVAL: GCF approves Huawei W5101 - Next Windows Phone in Ahead?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:52 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

The Global Certification Forum (GCF) just approved the Huawei W5101 and as the name indicates, it might be Huawei's next Windows Phone, the Chinese manufacturer might unveil during next month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. While nothing is confirmed, so far all Huawei Windows Phones started with a "W", and for sure the GCF is also pretty mum with further information. Nevertheless, we now know - thanks to the approval - that the W5101 is a quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE device which also supports dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz and - surprisingly enough - triband LTE at 800/1800/2600 MHz which indicates that the W5101 is made for Europe.

Back in October I wrote about Samsung's upcoming WOW (Wireless Olympic Works) app which the official Olympics sponsor has now launched for Android. The Public WOW app offers personalized experience, athlete cheering feature and tutorials on all 15 sporting events for Sochi 2014. It's said to provide sports fans with real-time access to event schedules, latest reports on results, medal standings and Olympic records reliably and fast. The Public WOW app is - as mentioned in October - an extension of Samsung's custom WOW for the Olympic Family, which is a wireless communications platform developed to ensure smarter communications and smoother wireless operations of the Olympic Winter Games by offering news and information about the Games to officials and staffs.
