Htc new Desire 500 review - Thumbs up for the new entry in middle level segment.

Htc too decided to target the youth by launching its android phones with a risk of being crowded out of blazing mid level segments and Htc Desire new 500 is a good sign of it its strategy.

The new Desire 500 is HTC‘s latest attempt to balance features and price. The other way to look at it is an alternative of Desire 600 with dual sim facility. The handset gives a youthful, catchy design with good features at affordable price.

Will the Desire 500 succeed in its market-expansion mission the way it is built? Read on to find out.

The new Desire 500 may not be a Royal Enfield bike, but the quad-core 1.2Ghz processor would mean it should be a nice cruiser like Pulsar and most people are after that in mid level segments. Camera capabilities are other impressive feature with slow motion videos. As an added bonus the front facing camera shoots in 720p as well. The smartphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core SoC and supports the common wireless standards WLAN, Bluetooth, GPS and even NFC. Contrary to many HTC devices you can. The HTC Desire 500 has a 4.3-inch LCD screen of acceptable quality. Its resolution is 480 by 800 pixels, which is okay given the smartphone’s class. Fuzzy edges in graphics are easy to spot with a naked eye, regardless of whether you’re surfing the internet, reading an article, or just looking at the icons on your home screen. The stock web browser on the HTC Desire 500 is okay, but we have definitely seen better than that. In terms of speed, it loads web pages in a timely manner and then we cannot complain about lack of responsiveness while interacting with them. However, the zooming gesture behaves weirdly, causing the page to shift to the side when you zoom in. Having the text reflow feature turned off eliminates the issue.

  • Quad-band 2G and dual-band 3G support
  • 4.3" 480 x 800 pixel TFT capacitive touchscreen with 217ppi

PURE VELLEGIRI - Friends forever

Life is a mixture of good and bad experiences, happiness and sorrows , love and anger , success and failure . However in some phase of life Sudeep met Suhas . When feeling of love and care develop then relations of friendship take place. As their relation grew their bonding increased .
The Fierce winds have knocked Sudeep down and his life has kicked him many a times. But he got right back and stood again. Suhas gradually became his strength. 

" I have known fear. I have even broken down. But none of suffering was in futile , because it brought me close to u . I would never allow you to go. If u sought the door , I would get on my knees and beg you to stay. I know what I want. I know what I need. I need your friendship. I need ur presence " Sudeep said it to Suhas when they were about to seperate from each other. 

" Bro, I will be your light and warmth when the road gets Rough. I will lend u a shoulder , I will hold ur hand , I will encourage u when u hesitate. I know u can make it. Just because I am not with u dosent mean u will not achieve ur dreams. From 1000km away I will be keeping track on ur each footstep." Suhas consoled Sudeep as he had to leave. He was leaving India. It had to be this way.

The day arrived. All the passengers were called in. Eyes were wet. Friends were seperating. They couldnt look in each others eyes. While entering the gate he turned back. Sudeep was still with his eyes closed. He couldnt see the gate of U.S. opening for his friend and the door of friendsip getting closed. He opened his eyes. Suhas tried to fake a smile. He couldnt. He came back running towards him and hugged him tightly for the one last time. Actually he kept a letter on his hand. He departed. Sudeep opened the letter.It said......

I know its sad to leave this wonderful country and wonderful people. It is very painful to part from u. we have been friends since so many years and leaving you is not so easy for me. But my friend , I have to leave. I promise you that on every vaacation I would remember you and raise a toast on your name....

Remember the days we used to hang out together. Oh god!! We had so much of fun. If nobody came with us we both used to go for night out. We raced our bikes on cold streets which were in deep silence. From Bandra to Marine drive and then to Malad. Each moment we spend had so much of life in it. I still remember we use to fight for few rupees as we never had it :)
When we will reunite again and look back at these moments taking some time out from real world, we will swin in our dreams. Dream of " Pure Vellegiri." 

Raindrops fall in everyone's life, you may feel no one's there , No one to hug or your troubles to share, Depressions takes hold ,World fall apart. Rightly or wrongly it chokes the heart. You may start hiding your tears. Sadness overwhelms , blots out sun. And before you know it , Downward spiral has begun. Never think you are alone. Our entire group will always be there for u and to your wellbeing....

Remember the good times, start believing in them again. Inhibitions....leave them in the past. Believe in yourself.Only u has made it happen and your new life has begun. Wet and grey skies are turning blue once more. ....

Yaaron dosti badi hi haseen hai
Yeh na ho to kya phir
Bolo yeh zindgi hai
Koi to ho raajdaan
Be garaj tera ho yaar
Koi to ho raajdaan  
Teri har ke buraai pe
daante vo dost
Gam ki ho dhoop to
saaya bane tera vo dost
Naache bhi vo 
Teri khushi main

Yaaron dosti badi hi haseen hai
Yeh na ho to kya phir
Bolo yeh zindgi hai

Meri zindagi sawaari
Mujhko gale lagake
Baitha diya falak pe
Mujhe khaat se oothake
Yaara teri yaari ko
Maine to khuda mana
Yaad karegi duniya
Tera mera afsana

Tere jaisa yaar kahan
Kahan aisa yaarana
Yaad karegi duniya
Tera mera afsana ............................

GIRLS ALWAYS MISUNDERSTAND BOYS...but only boys know the truth.

Unpe khatam chahat hogi,
Phir na kisipe ye inayat hogi,
Kuch is tarah yaad karenge unko,
Na unko khabar hogi na zamane ko shikaayat hogi.....

These words seems so foolish these days for many.I still think they are fooling themselves...

Girls have always misunderstood boys...

Boys try to show that they are smart and they dont care even if his girlfriend leaves him alone.
But only boys know the truth that how much they suffer.Boys never like to reveal even in their friend circle
that they are depressed and their heart is yelling and crying like hell...
But only boys know that they really miss their love and they always care for her no matter where she is and with whom she is. I accept the fact that boys are physically attracted.But that is how nature has made them.It dosent mean they dont care and love. EVEN BOYS SHOULD ACCEPT THE FACT THAT...

A 23 old GUY while returning home from job late evening

Tired after working for more than 9 hours he sits on his bike and accelerates through dusty road..His office was just 6km away from his home which usually takes 15 minutes for him to reach home.Today it meant something different.As he drives all thoughts run though his mind. 

1st KM:The family is a heaven in a heartless world. 

As he looks along the road, he sees a  child in the arms of his mother and it reminds him of his childhood.A smile runs through his face.He visualises his mom in the window waiting for him to comeback home from office and give him a glass of water and some snacks to eat.He visualises his mom embracing him (jadoo ki jhappi) and his all fears runs away.He visualises his mom sitting besides him and asking him how was his day.But when he looks throught the road he realises the fact that his mom is no longer alive.Drop of tear rolls down his eyes.

2nd KM : Absence of love can be felt the most when driving alone.

Few moments later a couple on a bike overtakes him. The girl was almost kissing tightly on her boyfriends neck which reminds him of his love.He wishes if he was not alone on the bike that moment he too would have kissed his love.He visualises a romantic evening and a long drive after a tiresome day. A smile runs through his face.He stops the bike and try calling her.Soon he realises they have broken up long back.His heart cries which gets reflected in his eyes.


He stops on red light. Besides his bike there is a white merc with tinted glass.He visualises himself in that car. Oh what a feel!!! feels like king of the world. Soon red light turns green and the car speeds away.He looks towards his bike.He realises his financial stability is below average.His heart cries more this time


He gets stuck in a traffic when a begger approaches him and says
" bhaiya,mujhe maddad karo.meri maa is duniya mein nahi hai.mujhe ek choti behen hai.uski shaadi karni hai jiske liye mujhe bahut padhna hai.usi ke liye mujhe kuch paise de do"

He looks back towards his life within a second and everything seems clear. The pain and willingness in the eyes of beggar makes him strong and he understands life.He hands over a 50rupee note to that beggar and speeds away. 

Life is short.dont think so much that your life becomes shorter.Enjoy each day and work hard.somethings are beyond your thinking.

He hears a sound " HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU........"the song goes on....

He opens his eyes to see himself on bed.WTF.He says to himself.he realises it was just a dream. Now dont think much whether it was his future,past or whatever.The fact is his mom is in front of him with a pooja thaali in her hand.his girlfried comes close to him and kisses him on the neck.....
