'Cellular Life Styles Apart' is a collection of stories that introduces you to new and innovative ways a Cell Phone is being used. A list of real world Cellular life styles across the world.

  1. Mobile Banking: ClairMail allows you to transact business through SMS or Email on your cell phone. (Source: VentureBeat) "Clairmail lets customers do their banking via SMS, including transferring funds, verifying account and transaction information. A customer messages the bank from their phone, and the bank confirms the customers identity by texting back to the phone and opening up a channel for a transaction."
  2. Free (Ad)Mobile: Google thinking of Free Mobiles supported by Advertising. "Schmidt said Saturday that as mobile phones become more like handheld computers and consumers spend as much as eight to 10 hours a day talking, texting and using the Web on these devices, advertising becomes a viable form of subsidy" (source: CNN Money). Earlier AOL attepted to bring in cheap ad-supported desktops but did not make it through. It will be interesting to see how far this ad-supported free mobile goes.
  3. Fastest SMS Messager: "Sixteen-year-old Ang Chuang Yang, a student from Singapore, broke the Guinness World Record for the shortest time needed to type a 160-character SMS message on Sunday after whizzing through the task in 41.52 seconds in a competition, reports Reuters."  (Source: Textually.Org)
  4. SMS to bring out Journalist in you : "The Sun newspaper has launched a user generated xontent initiative in the UK which allows mobile users to submit content to the 'newspaper' via a short code, according to 160characters.org.  The Sun says it is looking for readers who have snapped a celeb partying on their mobile, filmed a Premiership footballer getting drunk or been caught up in a breaking news story, like a terror attack to send in their pictures and even videos" (Source: Textually.Org)
  5. Instant Voice Messaging: "Pinger is instant voice messaging for your mobile phone. With Pinger you send voice messages directly to someone instantly—no ringing, no greetings, no lengthy prompts. Pinger is fast and efficient like email, but with your voice. It's mobile like text messaging, but with more personality". (Source: Pinger) You can also send the same message to a group of people. That makes it quite useful.
