Lucky Minutes phone card and Golden Lotus overseas calling card are two of the top rated calling cards. They offer great deals at competitive prices and bundle together a number of attractive features. This brings up an interesting question. What are the pros and cons of each card?
When comparing these two cards, it should be noted that there are a number of similar features. They both offer the same rounding time, toll free access and unlimited validity period. So far neither seems to have the upper hand.
Both cards also cut costs in different ways. For instance, while Lucky Minutes has lower maintenance charges and more local access numbers than the other card, they do charge a connection fee. On the other hand, not only does the Golden Lotus do away with connection charges, they also charge less as surplus charges.
Lucky’s additional feature, a feature that is lacking from Golden Lotus, obviously targets the frequent flyer. This said feature is the permanent pin option which is most travelers’ fabvored means of calling home.
Google is known to be a giant killer – from battling Microsoft in the search domain and Yahoo in the email markets. Google’s latest target seems to be the much envied iPhone from Apple. It has been a long wait for the iPhone killer from Google which has been a hot topic for discussion for technocrats all over the world. Finally it’s here – The HTC Google Nexus One.
At first look, the HTC Google Nexus One is pretty similar to the latest full touch screen phones on offer today. The touch interface and the way the entire screen is planned reminds one of the iPhone at first sight, but apart from looks, Google have managed to up the bar on many other features.
The first point worth mention is the 1 Ghz Snapdragon CPU, which makes it twice as fast as any other smartphone out there. However, only time can tell, if the battery technology existing today, is capable of handling such processors. The Android OS is excellent with its multi-tasking, “never close an app” approach, just perfect for phones of this kind. The 4 GB memory is a tad lower compared to the iPhone, but the SD card expandable slot with support up to 32 GB is a wonderful add-on, especially considering the falling prices of these cards.
The camera on the HTC Google Nexus One is 5 MP, auto-focus with LED flash and a very decent lens.
