Verizon is introducing a new service to help you back up your phone. You get 500 MB for free, after that plans start at $3 a month. What’s unique here is that Verizon Cloud will also back up phone specific data like your call logs, texts, contacts, etc.
One of the best features on Android called Google Now has made its way to iPhone. The service is now built into Google’s Search App and gives you heads up info on all kinds of stuff, including appointments, your daily commute, flights and more. It’s seriously handy on Android phones – it is smart enough to check your calendar for your next appoint, calculate the driving time (taking into account current traffic conditions) and alerting you with a message saying “you must leave by 6:15 AM to arrive by your appointment time of 7 AM.”
Nokia believes a better camera in its smartphones will attract more customers.
Telebrands – the company behind all those As Seen on Products – is introducing their first “direct to retail” product. It’s a pair of headphones called Flips Audio. You can listen like normal, or rotate the earcups 180 degrees and they become speakers so you share the music with friends. They will sell at Walmart, exclusively at first, for $120.
