Cellswapper.com : The eBay of Cell Phone Contracts

Cellswapper.comMany people are locked into cell phone contracts with unsatisfactory service and no way out.According to the US Public Interest Research Group, nearly half of all US cellular phone customers would switch, or consider switching, their current service carrier if they did not have to pay an early termination penalty of up to $240.

Features

  • Cellswapper.com has developed a social network for the exchange of cell phone plans and phones.
  • CellSwapper.com transfers the remainder of a contract to another interested party. It is a win-win situation, as unsatisfied customer gets out of their unwanted contact and the assuming party gets a free, short-term contract – as low as 1 month – without having to pay the hefty activation fee usually incurred with a new service plan.
  • Most short term contracts come bundled with a free phone or cash incentive that is offered as an incentive by the seller.
  • Free posting of plans/contracts.
  • CellSwapper has developed Transfer Trackingâ„¢ technology to keep all parties up to date with the contract transfer.
  • Consumers become free to change their cell phone plans as often as they wish!

The Apple iPhone

  • Since the Apple iPhone is a Cingular exclusive, anybody who wants to buy one will need to first become cell phone contract-free. In that sense, for many consumers CellSwapper will serve as perhaps the only means of getting an iPhone.

mojax : World’s first Mobile AJAX Application Frameworks

mojax is one of the world’s first Mobile AJAX Application Frameworks. Unlike traditional AJAX Web Frameworks, mojax Moblets do not run within a browser and are not subject to the availability and quality of a network connection. Also, unlike a web application running on a mobile device, a mojax moblet has access to lower level device features such as Camera API, Push Messaging, Bluetooth, Location Services, Contacts and more.

Traditionally, AJAX developers combine XML, CSS, and Javascript to develop Web applications. mojax applies AJAX concepts to J2ME MIDP applications for mobile devices. Using mojax, AJAX developers with no mobile programming experience can quickly and easily create mobile applications.

Nokia going Web 2.0 : Browsers to support Ajax

Nokia going Web 2.0 : Browsers to support AjaxNokia is going Web 2.0 ! Its trying to make its browsers support Ajax.This article offers an outline of AJAX issues on the Nokia Web Browser. It opens the discussion – and makes a case – for developers to begin considering the benefits from using this technology. Forum Nokia plans to begin a series of publications aimed at helping developers bring much more dynamic and engaging content onto mobile browser screens.

Basically, the purpose of the document is to start a discussion (espessially with web developers) about how to ensure that mobile users gain the same benefits from AJAX technology as those who are browsing from their desktop PCs. Nokia aims to collect and publish a set of best practices and guidelines for general AJAX development that targets mobile Internet access via the new Nokia Web Browser.

Although Nokia’s latest S60 browser is truly an amazing experience , it still can’t be called complete yet. As there are Challenges encountered in this trial, Many AJAX patterns are impossible to use without a mouse or touchscreen, for example:

  • The click/drag method used in A9 maps.
    • AJAX effect does work, but too slowly (much data transfer, processing power needed).
    • Application map area is too small or squeezed. Mobile screen size needs to be considered.
  • Drag-and-drop, using an AJAX-based shopping basket.
  • “Hover here” for pop-up details. Pop-up might be off-screen in mobile browser with no means to navigate to it.
