Pakistan’s Telecommunication Boom

Did you know that in 2012, Pakistan is producing the third highest SMS traffic in the world? In 2009, Pakistanis sent over 151 billion text messages! Pakistan has the highest mobile penetration rate in the South Asian region in March 2012 – and we’re talking about 118 million mobile subscribers.

What the first mobile phones used to offer are basic communication tools like text message service and calling service. The technological development of mobile phones has led to the addition of recording, audio and video, messaging and internet. It is because of these additional features that the rise of android phones or smart phones came to instant popularity. You won’t get surprised with the influx of competing mobile cellphone brands in this country.

A Pakistani was behind the innovation of Apple Pay Service

Seven men were behind tech giant Apple’s latest innovation — Apple Pay — and one of them was a Pakistani named Ahmer Ali Khan who hailed from Rawalpindi. It was published by Newsweek Pakistan in a report.

Ahmer KhanAhmer Khan, 38, had moved to Silicon Valley in 2002 after graduating from the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology and now lives in Milpitas, California, USA with his wife and two children.

The patent case for Apple Pay, which was introduced to the world by Apple CEO Tim Cook, was filed by Khan and six other co-inventors.

apple CEO tim cook for Apply payIt “will forever change the way all of us buy things”, Cook had said at the launch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, where he also demoed Apply Pay.

The company introduced Apple Pay to let people use iPhone 6, Apple Watch or iPad as a wallet to pay in stores and apps in “an easy, secure and private way”.

Apple pay useApple Pay is a mobile payment system or service that allows certain Apple mobile devices make payments at retail and online checkout. Its aim is to  digitize and replace the credit or debit magnetic stripe card transaction at credit card terminals. The service allows Apple devices wirelessly communicate with point of sale systems using a near field communication (NFC) antenna, a "dedicated chip that retains encrypted payment information" (known as the Secure Element), and Apple's Touch ID and Passbook.

Apple PayThe service is fully compatible with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the Apple Watch. Users with iPhone 5, 5C, or 5S can also use this service through an Apple Watch, though the watch has not the added Touch ID security. By default, Apple Pay remains disabled, and the owner  enters a code to enable Apple Pay after putting on the watch. The sensors of the watch will then ensure that it is still being worn by its owner. If the watch is removed at any time, then Apple Pay becomes disabled again.

Apple OfficeThe service keeps customer payment information safe and private from the retailer, and creates a "dynamic security code  generated for each single transaction". Apple has explained  that they would not track usage, which would remain between the customers, the vendors, and the banks. Users can also remotely stop the service on a lost phone via the Find My iPhone service.

Latest News for Nuxus 4 and Apple IPhone

Android 5.0 now embracing Nexus 4

There is a good news for Nexus 4 users, now Nexus 4 owners can update their Android handset to Android 5.0, by going to the system update options in their handsets. This update is about of 400MB in size, and there should be a nice, strong Wi-Fi connection before downloading and installing Android 5.0. You should make it sure that your battery is charged to at least 50% before you start the process.

Nexus 4 picsThe update is being offered on a staggered basis, so if Android 5.0 hasn't been loaded on your Nexus 4 yet, don't jump. Just be a little patient, and before you know it, the latest build of Google's open source OS will be decorating your phone.

System requirements say that you must have 500MB of free memory in order to install the update, and of course, rooted phones cannot download or install it unless a clean, stock version of Android is flashed. If you install the update on your Nexus 4, let I hope that you should have a good experience.

IPhone 5 and 6Apple IPhone 7 is about to Make its Entry:

The Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus are in the market for only two months. But it looks like that a newer version is in the pipeline. There would be pleasant changes in the design and functionality of the new IPhone cell phone. Apple iPhone 7 could offer a larger screen than the 5.5-inch glass behemoth on the iPhone 6 Plus. This time, the screen would be made of sapphire glass. Sapphire, of course, is the second hardest material on earth after diamond.

Android OSThe phone's body could expectedly be made of liquid metal, which might make it so strong. Touch ID sensor will allow for the removal of the home button and this will happen for the first time in iPhone history, and a quad-core A8 processor will be offering a remarkable performance. This year the 128GB model will be made available whereas Apple can attempt to double it next year, so the 256 model will come into the battle field. A 14MP camera might adorn the back of the phone.

Next iPhone is expected to feature a built-in projector, like witnessed on the Samsung Galaxy Beam, as a way to snare business from the enterprise. Of course the battery would be harder and stronger than before just enough to support all these features. The Apple iPhone 7 would be expected to be launched in the third quarter of 2015, priced higher than previous versions of the phone.

How to Change the APN Settings on Iphone or Android Cell Phones

The APN or Access Point Name is the network or cell phone or network carrier your cell phone or tablet accesses for data. Usually you don't need to touch the APN setting because it's configured for you by default or automatically. There are circumstances, however, where you'll want to look at the APN settings screen on your device: For troubleshooting, for example, when one can't get a data connection after switching to a new network, to avoid data charges on a prepaid call phone subscription, to avoid data roaming charges, or to use a different network carrier's SIM card on an unlocked phone. Here's you get where to change the APN settings (or at least view them) on your Android, iPhone, or iPad:

Please note that changing the APN settings can mess up your data connectivity, so be careful when editing it! (Mangling the APN settings actually is a strategy for blocking apps from using up data, though.) For troubleshooting, tap "Reset Settings" to get back to the original or default APN information if for some reason you've messed up with the APN settings.

iPhone and iPad APN Settings

If your carrier gives you the facility to view the APN settings, you can find it on your device under these menus, according to Apple's support documentation:

iPhone: Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network

iPad: Settings > Cellular Data > APN Settings

If your carrier does not allow you to edit your APN on your iPhone or iPad, you might try a service or site like Unlockit NZ. Point your mobile browser at on the iPhone or iPad and follow the given instructions. The site was developed for the purpose that you may use unofficial SIM cards from other carriers on your Apple device..

Android APN Settings

Go to Settings >> Wireless & Network >> Mobile Networks >> Access Point Names

Android and iOS APN Setting

Another resource for editing both iOS and Android devices is the APNchangeR project , where you can find cellular carrier settings or prepaid
info by country and operator.

In Pakistan HTC has become the main competitor of Samsung Mobile Company, although it is still struggling but its X1 series is now taking its share in the Pakistani Market. There is a specific circle of buyers interested in HTC mobiles.

Samsung has got a big share in Pakistan’s mobile market due to the popularity of its Galaxy Series and its tablet pc series whereas Famous brands of HTC include HTC Sensation, HTC Desire and HTC X1 Series which is most popular but equal to the price of Galaxy S4.

HTC 3G Mobiles

In Pakistan It is very difficult to make people change their cell phone models but HTC is doing slowly this work by introducing new models and giving innovations which are not in Samsung e.g. HTC Sense etc. It is being hoped that it will succeed to take a big share in Pakistan’s cell phone market with the passage of time if people start getting bored from Samsung or other models or manufacturers. People are just trying HTC models but not sticking permanently. So better luck to HTC in Future.
