Nokia 6136 WI-FI with GSM (http://rbi.ims.ca/4930-514). The Nokia 6136 phone integrates Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology with cellular to provide users a seamless transition of voice and data connections between GSM cellular and WLAN networks. With WLAN network access, callers can use VoIP and reduce their cell phone cost. In addition to UMA over WLAN, the system has Quadband EDGE/GSM 850/900/1800/1900. Talk time is up to five hours for GSM operation and up to five and a half hours for UMA. Standby time is up to 280 hours for GSM and up to 82 hours for UMA. Nokia regards multiradio combinations as the trend in future handheld devices.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
