    • The phone is your pc

      This idea isn't really new and it is not mine. I read about it at Ubuntu's site and I think it is a great idea. As they say: "In every dual-core phone, there’s a PC trying to get out."

      Basically, the idea is: if you dock your phone, you get a desktop system. You don't need to have a pc and a phone because your phone is your pc.

      See: http://www.ubuntu.com/phone/ubuntu-for-android

      Think about possibilities:
      1. Employees do not have to turn on a computer, only dock their phones and start working;
      2. No need to waste time syncing pc and…

            • Settings Menu

              Currently the settings menu has two visual options based solely on the number of applications listed. Once the downloaded number of applications goes over 40, it automatically changes the appearance to categorize each alphabetized section under the corresponding letter. This is not explained in any of the available manuals. This is not optional. And even if the unsuspecting customer deletes enough applications to below 40, this frustrated customer now finds after trolling through the forums that he or she is going to have to factory reset the device in order to return the menu to its original state. This is…

                  • Make the tiny text (or the date) in calendar view use accent color

                    Using accent color in the calendar would make it easier to see appointments at-a-glance. The text is hard to notice on smaller screened devices.

                    • Give Cortana an understanding of free times in the calendar so she can schedule meetings

                      Cortana should be like an EA. The most common task an EA does is accept and schedule meetings. This means Cortana should be able to respond to a command like "please schedule a meeting with Joe Belfiore to discuss my pay rise" and Cortana will find the next time you both have free and send the meeting request.

                              Microsoft is making software updates available to respective mobiles with the help of a wifi connection only. It’s acceptable that a mobile data connection for such cases may incur a high cost. But then there should be an option to use a mobile data connection to upgrade, which ever user choose. (No matter beyond 50 MB). Having said that OS can be upgraded with the help of an active mobile data connection, I’ve seen that it do not allow users to do so. A wifi connection is a must, where as a wifi connection at all time may not be…

                                    • Different Ringtones for each Sim in dual sim phones

                                      One Sim is for private calls, the other is for business calls. I would like to distinguish the two sorts of incoming calls by hearing different ringtones.
