postheadericon Bell’s Motorola Atrix also has HSUPA disabled, Canadians frown upon 400kbps uploads

If you happen to reside just north of the American border, you might have heard that Canadian carrier Bell is now offering the Motorola Atrix from $169.95 on a three year commitment, all the way up to $599.95 sans contract. While this groovy smartphone is a welcomed addition for local Android fanatics, the early adopters have learned that — much like its AT&T counterpart — it lacks HSUPA. This is confirmed by xda-developers members who see a mere 400kpbs upload speed on their maple syrup-flavored Atrix, which is bad news for YouTube celebrities and the likes on Bell Mobility. Alas, we’ve yet to hear from the carrier regarding this issue, but let’s just hope that the Atrix will be set free before Bell’s headquarters gets taken over by furious green robots.

[Thanks, Steve and @Shift3r]

postheadericon Nokia Beta Labs debuts Shoot and Tag scene app for your mobile phone

Say what you will about Nokia, the company has never had a shortage of ideas. And the latest from the kids at Nokia Beta Labs? Why, that would be a little something called Shoot and Tag. An app available — you guessed it — as a beta from the company, Shoot and Tag automatically creates individual scenes in the videos you shoot on your phone, not dissimilar to the chapters on a DVD. But that ain’t all! You can also create your own scene markers, just in case you find yourself capturing footage you know you’ll want handy access to later. Ready to give it a shot? Hit the source link to get started — but not before peeping the demo after the break.

postheadericon New phase-change memory gets boost from carbon nanotubes, puts PRAM claims to shame

We’ve been hearing about the potential flash killer for years, and now a team of University of Illinois engineers is claiming that its new phase-change technology could make the PRAM of our dreams look quaint by comparison. Like so many groundbreaking discoveries of late, carbon nanotubes are at the heart of the this new mode of memory, which uses 100x less power than its phase-change predecessors. So, how does it work? Basically, the team replaced metal wires with carbon nanotubes to pump electricity through phase-change bits, reducing the size of the conductor and the amount of energy consumed. Still too much technobabble? How ’bout this — they’re using tiny tubes to give your cellphone juice for days. Get it? Good.

[Thanks, Jeff]

postheadericon FCC going after cellphone jammers, could land users in the slammer

FCC going after cellphone jammers
The FCC has put a bounty on the heads of all the cellphone-hating vigilantes out there. These GPS and signal jammers are particularly popular amongst theaters, quiet restaurants and in many school systems fighting the good fight against sexting during class. The FCC is calling on folks to stop and to report their neighbors for using these devices — reason being that they pose serious health and safety risks by interfering with 911 calls and other emergencies in the vicinity. So if you know a so-called ‘jammer,’ don’t hesitate to file a complaint about them to the FCC — the info can be found at the source link below.
