At 6.9mm Thin, Japanese Yemada Denki Wins the Title of Thinnest Windows Phone Ever

A lot is going on in the Windows ecosystem these days and just when we thought it started to get a tad bit boring, a Japanese phone maker has come up with a weirdly named phone which ironically holds the title for the Thinnest Windows phone ever. Named “Yemada Denki”, which literally translates to Every Phone in Japanese, is an entry level Windows 10 smartphone selling at an USD equivalent of $320.


The Yemada Denki is propelled by a Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.2GHz and paired with a 2GB of RAM. On the storage front the device offers 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. The smartphone comes with a 5.5-inch display set at a resolution of 720p, and the imaging front is managed by a 13-Megapixel primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor.

The connectivity features include the standard Bluetooth 4.0, LTE support for band one, three and nineteen. As for the thinnest phone badge, the Yemada phone achieves it by maintaining a thinness of 6.9-inch which is incidentally the same thickness as the iPhone 6S. If not anything else, this phone inadvertently reminds me how thick and bulky Windows phones have been.

The Every Phone will be up for sale upright at a price of $325 and if that seems like quiet a lot of money, you can also go for the monthly payment of $14.63 spread over a time period of two years. The deal is further sweetened by the fact that first 3000 buyers of the phone will be treated with free Bluetooth keyboard and screen protector, the phone will however come with two-year warranty.

The very fact that manufacturers are rushing to release a range of Windows 10 handset is a good vibe for Microsoft. Features like Continuum and Cortana seem to be primary reason for people to be excited about the new crop of Windows phones.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures.
