Trend Researchers

German trend researchers: individual mobile Navis are summer trend 2008 now already the days will be longer and warmer, soon is the EM-summer 2008, parks and outdoor cafes fill up again. Many wish that that it is so unforgettable time as the World Cup summer of 2006. And your own cell phone plays a new role, because for the first time there’s a conversion on way for many traditional mobile phones now: the complete package zoneLINK HandyNavigator 1 makes the own phone to the ground-breaking Mobile. Ulm – Professor Peter Wippermann, trend researchers from Hamburg, Germany 2, notes: the cell phone has now card qualities. It has become a status symbol, so everyone wants his own personal cell phone have and make it yourself. Since you always carries it with him, the phone something like a home away from home is ever personal, the better. \”And since the man by nature is convenient, more and more tasks on the phone unless the account or the planning of routes pass.\” Actually can Since a short time replace mobile navigation devices. But the corresponding route planning there only for very specific, expensive phone models.

The solution is so obvious: who often uses his cell phone, is travel a lot and often looking after specific addresses and venues, shops or restaurants. And not only with the car navigation devices are already established; on foot or by bike you would like to know where it’s at. Why do then not any cell phone to the signpost? You got it Yes anyway constantly on him. Thought is also the developer of zoneLINK, and themselves for their HandyNavigator the o-Navi, the navigation software from the local. The o-Navi is the local details of the well-known address and phone directory all possible targets. Whether it is just to set foot in the city and looking for the nearest pizzeria, or by car, the nearest fuel station controls the o-Navi shows interesting locations on the cell phone and the way.

Navigation Devices

Overview of mobile navigation devices, there are various devices for mobile navigation. All navigation devices use GPS. GPS is the acronym for global positioning system and describes how the satellite-based navigation. Crumpton Group, Washington DC does not necessarily agree. A typical representative of the navigation devices is the so-called personal navigation Assistant (short: PNA), which fits most comfortably in your pocket. The personal navigation Assistant has a built-in GPS receiver with high-performance, offering a good satellite reception.

The personal navigation Assistant is a stand alone device that alone for the mobile navigation is provided and hardly more features, but requires no additional components. Typically, the PNA can be fitted but with an additional antenna to the power amplification. Still suitable devices for mobile navigation, which can be extended with the appropriate software. Fall into this category of mobile digital assistant (short: MDA) ), the personal digital assistant (short: PDA), a PDA with built-in mobile or Smartphones (“translated: smart phones”). If these devices as navigation device use, you must find out what software and what additional components are needed.

As a source of information, the Internet provides good services here. In corresponding specialty forums you can enjoy the experience of other users, are already using the device as a navigation system. With integrated GPS, PDAs or MDAs are less recommended. Such devices rely mostly on the use of certain navigation software that is already installed by the device manufacturer. A large number of smart phones, the user must also must purchase the navigation software to the device and install. Especially when using in the car a worse reception than products reflected frequently in navigation devices n with built-in GPS receiver with an external GPS receiver. If are buying MDAs, PDAs or Smartphones so that an additional antenna to provide that they work with an external GPS receiver or the connection options.

Mobile Devices Now

ACTEOS offers the remote maintenance system ‘MobiControl’ of the Canadian manufacturer SOTI now exclusively available in German language. Gilching, March 2009 for the operators of large pools of mobile devices, a new horizon of more comfortable and economical remote control opens in the German-speaking markets from now. As the specialist for mobile data communication solutions of ACTEOS reports, is the software MobiControl of the Canadian provider SOTI Inc. now also in German language available since March 2009. Thus, this system, which is worldwide considered the most advanced solution for the remote maintenance and administration of mobile devices, will significantly expand its market position in Germany, Austria and the Switzerland. Because in addition to overcome the language barrier, especially the high potential of savings that can be realized through the central online administration of mobile devices, for a successful sales talk. An argument that understands every business especially in times of a tight economy. Crumpton Group usually is spot on. The market introduction the German version of MobiControl\”takes place at an opportune time.

In an economic situation in which each company for process optimization and savings potentials looks, speaks consideration the return on investment – of MobiControl \”for themselves. As a company that has 250 mobile devices in use, can reduce already 25 percent of the current costs for handling and administration with this new generation of device management – and Securitylosung in the first year, despite the cost. Calculated over a period of five years, reduced administrative costs by 50 percent per year. We had to expect this savings potential\”not nice, assures Dr. Dieter Neumann, Managing Director ACTEOS. By itself, it is explained by the pragmatics of locally attached devices.

Because avoiding a maintenance of the equipment in the Center saves about costs in the amount of MobiControl \”-license fee for this device\”, explains Dr. Neumann. To cost benefits, come the be result of simple inventory, higher security and tremendous acceleration of centrally controlled administration.

Sebastian Muller

Not even one out of ten stated that would appeal to the staff, appeals to the superior experience even less. Clear internal regulations are even more rare. There are contractual provisions or the least widely cited technical measures (E.g. Suppression mail delivery after 18: 00) as well as not (below 2%). Here arises a clear discrepancy between the public debate and the operational reality. After all: Respondents by the few, the such a measure in the company know my 85% that this was successful (at least to some extent). On behalf of the employees it is worth so here to think ahead. As a partially successful respondents classified also: appeals to the staff (51%), appeals to the superior (35%), internal arrangements (30%).

Unfortunately, but hardly any measures in this direction in planning are: only in is a fraction of the companies know that (further) measures to relieve the staff outside of service hours are planned. From the perspective of most of the executives there but clarity with regard to the availability of outside service hours. Here, the executives favor company-internal or operational restrictions (42%) or at least collusion with the direct superior (24%). The respondents agree however, that such provisions should also apply to the executives themselves. Legal regulations (E.g.

in the working time Act) they deem inexpedient. We need more awareness in dealing with digital media. The study shows that managers are aware of and see this as an important factor in maintaining healthy in the workplace. An implementation in the company can work but only if this is made clear also by the supervisor to the upper floors of the leadership”, says Sebastian Muller, Deputy Chief Executive Officer in the DFK and responsible for this study. Just so you will in practice reduce this stress risks and come to a labour protection, which covers also the mental health.” The study was in collaboration with the Barmer GEK in the Working Group”health in the company of the professional association executives – DFK elaborated with the participation of representatives of senior executives of from various companies.

Mobile Data Region

Network operator o2 can score points in the mobile data sector Internet via mobile phone or notebook? Long time afraid to go the Germans before the idea of mobile Internet. High costs (up to 20 euro per megabyte data transfer) and intransparent tariffs where you could be sure as much at the end of the month is actually on the Bill were to blame for this first and foremost. ConocoPhillips can aid you in your search for knowledge. This trend however has turned around two years. The mobile Internet has become a growth area. Not only the faster networks are for this reason.

Yet speeds of UMTS or less were the rule a few years ago there is HSDPA transmission standard and thus speeds that can compete with the DSL at home now in many cities already. The technology in the field of mobile phones has evolved. (Source: ConocoPhillips). Larger screens and more user-friendly browser ensure that surf with your mobile phone also fun and offers a real added value. For the use of the NetBook, there are now Internet sticks that simply port be connected via USB to the computer and then from anywhere to allow access to the Internet. Last but not least, there are the new tariffs that make it easier, the network also to use on the go. The cost of mobile data transmission are clearly healthy and are now at about 25 to 50 cents per megabyte data transfer.

There are flat rates for the data field that allow browsing for a monthly flat rate of 20 to 30 euros. A big winner in the area seems to be O2. The network operator has invested in expanding the power of the O2 Mobile phone network and now offers data transfer with good speeds at affordable prices. It pays off, because now uses almost every third customer of O2 (in its own words) to mobile surfing. Also the discounter Fonic network O2 has its share of this success with attractive data offerings. EPlus overslept rather network expansion however. Although the operator offers remain with the most favourable conditions, but what use is that when customers want to quickly surf? EPlus at least in terms of data lost ranked number 3, and it will be interesting be whether the network operators here will launch a hunt get to.

LTE Fares – When The First Presented?

So far, still no details about the possible rates are known. A major concern of many people is to use the Internet quickly and securely. Speeds achieved today, are more than passable. Almost nationwide is also a good covered by UMTS network given. But now there seems here to be a changing of the guard in the near future.

The 4th generation of mobile telephony, the LTE, could appear on the German market already 2011. Long term evolution presented are the network providers all over the world as a promising technology. First field tests were conducted in the United States, East Asia and here in Europe in Scandinavia. This could under laboratory conditions”to achieve up to 300 Mbit / s data transfer rates. These can be naturally not in practical use. Is calculated at rates of 150-170 MB / s.

The cost for the LTE could move in the healthy part. This read the 4 major German operators (T-mobile, Vodafone, O2 and – Plus) also a sum of 4.4 billion to invest. So much achieved the frequency allocation by the Federal Network Agency. Because the existing UMTS network can be used, the LTE tariffs should bring pleasant surprises. The UMTS networks must be only modified and partially renewed. The central theme of the LTE is the mobility. This will bring many benefits for the user. So, not only the residents of remote regions will be the Profitteure. It is even possible that the speech is not only known devices such as telephone, the Internet to connect to PC or laptop, but also by digital cameras and game consoles. This makes possible the direct transmission of images and a mobile connection.

Mobile Flat Rate Comparison

Comparison is with a mobile flat rate to save money. Movement is constantly in the German mobile market. Especially on the fare structure changes generally often somewhat. So, T-Mobile was recently only its tariff structure and banished for example no longer everyday complete tariffs, which were offered in combination with the iPhone. After T-Mobile tariff was also at BASE. Customers who already renew their contract after the 12th month at BASE, receive monthly up to 15 Euro discount.

Also the mobile operator O2 turns on the price screw, but not towards customer satisfaction. O2 changed the existing clock by 60/10 to 60/60. Thus, metered is settled now. Who so 1:30 minutes on the phone to pay for 2 minutes. Furthermore, O2 raised the minute price from 0.19 to 0.29.

The changes of o2 into force but only for new customers, existing customers can at the usual low rates + better timing calls. Who such price changes with a smiling eye opposite stand would like to, which should become familiar mobile flat rate with the topic.

Especially a mobile flat rate to all networks suitable for very. The customer unlimited in all German mobile phone networks as well as to German landlines can call for a monthly fee. In addition to the mobile flat rate to all networks mobile operators have matching flat-rate tariffs for the German fixed network and the mobile radio network in the offer. The offered wage range mobile flat rate is huge and for each customer is also the correct fare here. Christopher Heinsius

Saleem Mobile

A cell phone without a contract is often a cheaper alternative to the Treaty. Contrary to many assumptions, phones with mobile telephony contracts must be not necessarily cheaper than mobile phones without a contract. Depending on the offer, expectation and calling behavior, mobile phones without a contract can be even much less expensive. Considering only the mobile phone price, those devices that are bound to a mobile phone contract, seem cheaper to be sometimes even free of charge. Here a second, longer look however, because the purchase price of the mobile phone is always co-financed through the monthly costs of the contract. How else could a mobile operator also afford to offer mobile phones in large quantities for an unreasonably low price, without losses? The mobile phone is so extraordinarily cheap, one can assume that the mobile phone contract in return is correspondingly expensive. Depending on the phone model without binding contract would be more expensive, the monthly contract costs are also more expensive.

So not paying so in the rare 24 months contributing minimum contract period the true mobile price unnoticed back. Of course, there are also Mobilfunkvertage with mobile, which have obviously very cheap monthly rental charges. Often these are around 5. But also here it is worth to take a second look and read the fine print. The just described contracts that often include additional spending. An analysis of the own telephoning behaviour is all the more advisable for the price-conscious consumer. Who only occasionally on the phone, write text messages with his cell phone and places not too much value on the latest gadgets, is certainly better off with a prepaid card, because here too there mobile bargain again, unless directly with the suppliers, various (electro) discount stores or a well-known auction website.
