From basic phones to smartphones, LG offers a wide range of models. Each model offers a specific set of features in proportion to the budget opted by users. Along-with other mobile phone manufacturing majors such as Samsung, HTC and Nokia, LG launches attractive new models with new features quite often.

Android-powered based mobile phones are dominating the world of smartphones. Smartphones built on Windows OS are trying their level best to beat this trend. The lead in this direction was taken by Taiwan based mobile phone manufacturing company – HTC. HTC having many firsts to its credit has launched Windows based smartphones labeled HTC Titan and HTC Radar. These are launched in UK market loaded with Windows 7.5 OS. HTC had unveiled this line up in last August and made its way well ahead of global mobile phone manufacturing major, Nokia. We may expect similar range of phones from Nokia by the end of this year.
Of late, Android developers are in a fix. It has been six months since the launch of the Android Honeycomb Tablet in the Market and it has not garnered a potential user base. The problem clearly lies in the dearth in apps optimized for the Android Tablets and analysts are of the view that an evident lack of these Honeycomb aka Android 3.0 Applications is what makes it a less chosen Tablet as opposed to the Apple’s iPad. But any new technology faces such non-acceptance in the beginning; the Honeycomb tablet also had its share of tough criticism and rejection from the global consumers with Apple being the dominant competitor today in the market. Android developers are trying their best to convince their consumers that the Android optimized apps will see a rise by the end of 2011 despite its sluggish start.

In the earlier days (early 2000) it was and even now is to some extent, Apple which regularly comes up with novel products that are termed legendarily as ground-breaking innovations. In the recent past, Apple is slowly but steadily facing competition from several players who also seem to have started making headlines with their innovative product-launches.
Logitech has always come up with computer hardware products that change the way people use their Computers. The change in the way Logitech fabricates products, seems to be in alignment with changing times and users have always rated the advantages of using those products positively and have not been bothered mostly, by the disadvantages of using them. Its latest product seems to entail more advantages than its previous innovations.
The K750 represents Logitech’s latest product and is a Wireless Solar Keyboard that eliminates the requirement of batteries or electricity for its functioning. It comprises of a series of solar panels that essentially absorb the ambient light from the Sun (like any other solar-enabled product) and recharges itself. It isn’t a mandate for users to essentially keep the keyboard under sunlight to recharge it; even the light emerging from your household lights can also do the job.
