A New Smartphones’ Application from Tawkon Measures Exposed Radiation

Israeli start-up firm Tawkon has developed a new software that measures mobile telephone handset radiation. The goal is to help users reduce exposure to emissions without giving up their phones.

Tawkon’s (pronounced talk-on) application is already available for Research In Motion‘s BlackBerry handsets and will be launched for Google‘s Android-based phones and Nokia‘s Symbian later this year.

“We are the first solution that can be downloaded to a phone,” Tawkon co-founder and CEO Gil Friedlander told Reuters.

Until now radiation emissions were measured with an external device. In many countries handset manufacturers must disclose the maximum level of radiation emitted and similar legislation is starting to appear in the United States.

Well, it looks like the mystery of Nokia‘s Symbian^3 slider may soon be solved. Reuters is reporting that Nokia will introduce its new E7 smartphone at its Nokia World event in London next week, and that the device will pack both a “large” touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard.

That’s further backed up by the existence of an XML file on Nokia’s own site, which seemingly confirms that the E7 does indeed run Symbian^3, and that it boasts a 640 x 360 display along with that QWERTY keyboard. Not much more than that at the moment, but those previous leaks suggest that we’re basically looking at a slider version of the Nokia N8.
