Samsung OMNIA HD i8910 Review

We need to point out that plastic surface on its back side simply adores fingerprints. Our other negative comment here is the back cover opens way too easily, there is no apparent lock mechanism and we felt as if it was about to come off anytime.

Though coming under the category of media phone, Nokia 7610 Supernova handset is devised to perform on an S-40 mode.

The exotic aspect about Nokia 7610 Supernova is its Theme Coloriser and Xpress-On Covers, which are already available in Nokia's other Supernova models. The advantage of this coloriser is that the user can change the cover to suit the mindset.

As a slider phone, Nokia 7610 Supernova handset invites attention with its features that come in the row - metallic front case allied with a plastic made trim, a 3.2 megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash with a resolution range of 2048 x 1536 pixels and an auto-focus, optional portrait / landscape mode, shoot / edit photos at a resolution of VGA (15 fps) and mediocre image quality, a loudspeaker supported by bass, a charger connector, the power button, a 2.5mm headset jack, volume keys, a music player and a camera key, a micro USB connector.

Bluetooth with EDR and A2DP helps the transfer of files to another handset and music to headsets through wireless mode, compatible to get linked to an external phone through Bluetooth, sharp 'stereo widening' aspect, a FM Radio with RDS, the Theme Coloriser has both enhanced utility and exhaust of memory, comes with preinstalled Yahoo by which the users are free to search Web, download maps, low-speed Opera Mini (through EDGE), access to POP3 or IMAP4 e-mail, WidSets.

Nokia has not let down the consumers as this handset consists of four pre-installed games viz Snake 3D, Sudoku, Sea Sweeper and Bounce II.Nokia 7610 Supernova, as on par with other Nokia models, is fitted with 64 MB internal memory and a 512 MB card, 860 mAh Li-Ion battery supposed to last for 5.4 hours of talk-time mode / 300 hours of stand-by mode (however the battery may be subjected to charge once the handset functions on music player), the SAR value is 0.81 W/kg at use and 0.65 W/ kg while lying on the body. A value-added phone for those who do not insist on 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS or a document reader and for those whom fashion alone counts a lot, Nokia 7610 Supernova is what they are looking for.

India follows a Parliamentary system of Government like United Kingdom. In a Parliamentary system the Powers are generally in the hands of a Prime Minister rather than a President. The Prime Minister is the leader of a party (or coalition of parties that has a majority in the Lok Sabha (lower house) of the Parliament The Prime Minister either has to be a current member of one of the houses of Parliament, or be elected within six months of being appointed. The First Prime Minister of Independent India was Jawaharlal Nehru. Jawaharlal Nehru also holds the record for continuously being in the office for the longest period Aug. 15, 1947 to May 27, 1964 about 17 years.

Jawaharlal NehruJawaharlal Nehru implemented his socialist vision by introducing a modified, "Indian" version of state planning and control over the economy. Creating the Planning commission of India, Nehru drew up the first Five-Year Plan in 1951, which charted the government`s investments in industries and agriculture. Increasing business and income taxes, Nehru envisaged a mixed economy in which the government would manage strategic industries such as mining, electricity and heavy industries, serving public interest and a check to private enterprise. Nehru pursued land redistribution and launched programmes to build irrigation canals, dams and spread the use of fertilizers to increase agricultural production. While encouraging the construction of large dams, irrigation works and the generation of hydroelectricity, Nehru also launched India`s programme to harness nuclear energy. For most of Nehru`s term as prime minister, India would continue to face serious food shortages despite progress and increases in agricultural production. Nehru`s industrial policies encouraged the growth of diverse manufacturing and heavy industries, yet state planning, controls and regulations impaired productivity, quality and profitability. Although the Indian economy enjoyed a steady rate of growth, chronic unemployment amidst inerradicable poverty continued to plague the population. Nehru`s popularity remained unaffected, and his government succeeded in extending water and electricity supply, health care, roads and infrastructure to a large degree for India`s vast rural population.

Gulzari lal was a Gandhian to the core and was also temporary Prime Minister on two occasions after the sudden death of Pandit Nehru (from may 27, 1964 to June 9, 1964), for 14 days, and again after the sudden demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri (from January 11 to 24, 1966), again for a period of 14 days. On both occasions he acted for slightly less than a month, his term ending upon the election of a new leader of the Indian National Congress. Born in Sialkot (now in Pakistan), July 4, 1898 died on January 15, 1998, as a centenarian. He was a leading member in the labour movement. He had also conferred the Bharat Ratna Award in the year1997.

Lal Bahadur ShastriBorn in Moghalsarai (Varanasi), October 2, 1904 died in Tashkent (USSR) on January 11, 1966, while negotiating peace talks with Pakistan. He had conferred Bharat Ratna in 1966. As the Minister for Transport and Police, he was the first to appoint women conductors and ordered that Police use jets of water instead of lathis to avoid unruly crowds. Shastri worked by his natural traits to obtain agreements, but in his short tenure was ineffective in dealing with the economic crisis and food shortage in the country. He was respected a lot and used this advantage in pushing the Green Revolution in India which directly led to India becoming a food-surplus nation, he also introduced White Revolution. During the 22-day war with Pakistan, Lal Bahadur Shastri created the slogan of "Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan", underlining the need to boost India`s food production. He held office for 582 days, from June 9, 1964 to January 11, 1966.

Indira GandhiIndira Gandhi was the first Women Prime Minister of India and held office from Jan. 24, 1966 to March 24, 1977 and again from Jan. 14 to Oct. 31,1984, for a total of 5,831 days. Abolition of Privy Purse, nationalization of banks, birth of Bangladesh is some of her achievements. Born in Allahabad, Nov. 19, 1917; died on Oct. 31,1984. Her own Sikh bodyguard murdered her as she had ordered attack on the Golden Temple. Indira Gandhi was Minister for Information and Broadcasting in Lal Bahadur Shastri`s tenure. She was the person to declare Emergency in the country; by 1973 Delhi and north India were rocked by demonstrations angry at high price rise, the poor state of the economy, uncontrolled corruption, and poor standards of living. In June 1975, the High Court of Allahabad found her guilty of using illegal practices during election campaign, and ordered her to vacate her seat.

Morarji DesaiThe first non-congress Prime Minister since Independence, Morarji Desai headed the Janata Party Government for 857 days, from March 24, 1977 to July 28, 1979. He was one of those rare Gandhians. Born on 29th February 1896, in Bahadesli Village, Gujarat; a centenarian, he passed away on April 10, 1995. He had also conferred Bharat Ratna in 1991. During his time Desai greatly improved relations with Pakistan and Zia-ul-Haq. Diplomatic relations were also re-established with China. His greatest contribution was that his Government renewed people`s faith in democracy. His Government undid many amendments made to the constitution during emergency and made it difficult for any future Government to impose National emergency.

Charan Singh A "kisan" Prime Minister from Uttar Pradesh, he never faced Parliament, even though he was in office for 171 days, from July 28, 1979 to Jan. 14, 1980. Within days of assuming office, one of the supporting parties withdrew its support, after which he continued as caretaker PM, till fresh elections were held. Born in Noorpur, Meerut in U. P. on Dec.23, 1902 died in 1987. Charan Singh was of the opinion that cooperative farms would not succeed in India. Charan Singh`s political career suffered due to his open criticism of Nehru`s economic policy. He also mentioned that that Indian labour laws had to be refined if India were to become competitive in world economy. He also opened high level diplomatic relations with Israel.

Rajiv GandhiRajiv Gandhi worked as a professional pilot for Indian Airlines before coming into politics. The youngest Prime Minister so far, this grand son of Pt. Nehru assumed office at the age of 41, the day his mother was assassinated (Oct. 31,1984). In the 1985 elections, he led his party to a big win and continued as PM till Dec 1,1989. Born in Bombay on Aug. 20, 1944; died in Sriperumbudur on May 21, 1991, at the hands of a human bomb. He began demolishing the License Raj, government quotas, tax and permitted regulations on economic activity, modernized the telecommunications industry, education system, expanded science and technology and improved relations with the United States. The Bofors scandal broke his honest, image and resulted in a major defeat for his party in the 1989 elections. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1991.

V.P.Singh V. P. Singh became Prime Minister of Janata Dal on Dec. 2,1989 and continued till Nov. 10, 1990. Born in Allahabad on June 25, 1931. Singh wished to move nationally on social justice-related issues, which would in turn combine the caste coalition that supported the Janata Dal in North India, and accordingly decided to implement the recommendations of the Mandal Commission which suggested that a fixed quota of all jobs in the public sector be reserved for members of the historically disadvantaged Other Backward Classes. these were Hindu castes, and certain non-Hindu caste-like communities, which, though not untouchable, had been socially and educationally backward. This decision led to widespread protests among the youth in urban areas in North India.

Chandra ShekharThe " Young Turk"(reformist) became Prime Minister on Nov. 10,1990 and continued till June 21, 1991 (224 days). Born in Village Ibrahimpatti in Ballia District, U P on July 1, 1927.

Today, Chandra Shekhar is a member of India`s Lower House of Parliament. He now leads Samajwadi Janata Party (Rashtriya). Chandra Shekhar was the Eleventh Prime Minister of India.
