  1. Thank you very much Dennis for adding my blog to your blog roll. A humble suggestion for you – Rather than showing your blog roll on each and every page of blog it would be better to make a seperate page for it. See you…
    And regarding your comment on NetQin Mobile Guard access to System folders, I have tried it in Nokia 5230 and 5800 (Both 5th ed.) and it works as good as in 3rd ed. phones.

  2. Much thanks for the review of our consumer-facing mobile web application. We’ve converged virtual characters, interactive private chat, graphic as well as optimized mobile video into a “conversational” experience. The platform was designed for mobile marketing and mLearning applications. The plan is to bring out MySantaTalk each year to show off the newest features of the platform in a fun and lighthearted mobile entertainment experience. Best — the Team @contentAI
