Apple passes Nokia to become biggest smartphone producer by volume

According to Financial Times, Apple has passed Nokia to become the biggest smartphone producer by volume on the planet. It took both Apple's recent [20 million iPhone surge, and Nokia's just as recent decline for the two to switch position, but that it happened only 4 years after Apple entered the market is impressive none the less.

Apple was already the biggest smartphone maker by revenue and profits, but the April-June period marked the first time it had surpassed Nokia in volume.

Multitask while on a phone call with Thrutu for iPhone

Multitask while on a phone call with Thrutu for iPhone

Thrutu, by MetaSwitch, is a new app that lets you share location, photos, contacts and more while you're talking on the phone.

Thrutu brings new fun and function to the phone call. It's so simple that you'll wonder why phone calls couldn't always work this way.

Thrutu comes with five buttons:

  • Location: see each other’s position on a map, updating live as you move.
  • Camera: snap and share a photo during a call
  • Gallery: share a photo that's already stored on the phone.
  • Contacts: instantly send contact details
  • Prod: convey touch in a phone call by making the other phone vibrate!

Thrutu needs simultaneous voice and data to meet operate at its full potential, so if you're a Verizon customer, you'll need to be connected to Wifi. However, Thrutu does make it possible to share via SMS for Verizon customers or when the person you're talking to doesn't have Thrutu installed.

I haven't had the chance to play with this, yet, but it looks rather promising. Having quick and easy access to location, camera, photos, and contacts while on a phone call will be very convenient. Sure, I can switch apps to accomplish any of these tasks (except the vibrating), but this is a much better implementation. I hope Apple is taking notes, as I think this a feature that is lacking in iOS.

Thrutu is available for free. Screenshots and video after the break.
