3G Hotspot, Windows Phone 7 Mango’s Hidden Feature

Written on August 25, 2011 by Lulu

A hidden feature of Windows Phone 7 Mango, which is a 3G hotspot, was discovered on Wednesday.

Microsoft might have more hidden plans for their Windows Phone 7 Mango with a discovery of a mobile hotspot feature on Wedneday. While still not announced for public, and might have no one officially, an Internet sharing section enable users to share a 3G or 4G link over Wi-Fi for up to five people — much like Android, iPhones and BlackBerry 7 devices. The code is in at least the gold master build (7720.68), and could exist on all Windows phones.

Rafael Rivera, a well-known ChevronWP7 contributor, confirmed the said code and speculated that – like Apple – the feature depended on a carrier profile that enables it. Almost all carriers who object to letting customers tether or use a hotspot out of the box often want to test the feature first before they enable it and begin to charge subscribers.

A lot of Mango features are announced to the public, such as multitasking, the IE9-based browser and deeper voice control. Whether or not all of those are revealed to the public isn’t evident yet. Even the currently shipping IS12T, which is the world’s first Mango phone, doesn’t have all its features readily available.

Apple is said to release its iPad 3 by Thanksgiving, while the iPad 2 will be discounted.

It was alleged that Apple will break its cycle of releasing one iPad per year, as the Cupertino-based company is set to unleash the iPad 3 this year. The next-gen iPad is said to feature high resolution Retina Display, and it was also rumored to be an “iPad Pro” model. The mentioned iPad Pro unit will compliment its predecessor – the iPad 2 – rather than replace it entirely.

Taiwan Economic News reported that Apple’s iPad 3 could launch at iPad 2’s current price, while the latter will be discounted. This will be done to clear the device’s stock inventory. The report also added that the third-generation Apple tablet will arrive at the shelves “by Thanksgiving or next year.”

However, speculations will remain as it is. That said, people will have to take these information as a grain of salt for the time being.

After providing its users with features that will make jaws drop, Flock is saying goodbye.

Flock, the web browser with loads of media sharing and social features in it, announced that it’s shutting down. Unfortunately, the web browser went out with a sigh, and the news has been greeted with a shrug.

Five or six years ago, Flock was born and people loved the web browser. Some of its technology was not trivial to build, and an HTML editor in a content management system was revolutionary back then. But things drastically changed after that. Maybe Flock was just too ahead of its time, or other web browsers in the market was just progressing slow.
