Mobile phones are like relationships; they come and go. Whatever that means, Gadg suggest that you better bring attention to this mobile news:
1. Has DRM put an end on Nokia’s international music download plan? Digital Rights Management (DRM) software is said to be the reason why DRM decided to end the free music downloads with cellphone puchases which cover 27 different countries. The said program was launched in Asia, African and European markets in 2008 as an alternative for iTunes. A Nokia spokesperson claimed that the markets seem to “want a DRM-free music service.”
2. Samsung got two new handsets in tow. One is called Samsung Galaxy Ace, which earlier known as the Galaxy S Mini. However, it will also be known as Galaxy S Mini and features include HVGA (480 x 320 pixels) screen, 5MP camera and run Android 2.2. The second handset is dubbed as the Samsung Galazy Suit or Samsung S5670. The phone is said to be slightly smaller than the Ace and other Galaxy S smartphones. Both mobile devices are set to be presented at the Mobile World Congress.
