Google unveiled its Gmail Phone Call feature. It means you can call phones directly from your Gmail. From the Google blog:
Calls to the U.S. and Canada will be free for at least the rest of the year and calls to other countries will be billed at our very low rates. We worked hard to make these rates really cheap (see comparison table) with calls to the U.K., France, Germany, China, Japan--and many more countries--for as little as $0.02 per minute.

Dialing a phone number works just like a normal phone. Just click "Call phone" at the top of your chat list and dial a number or enter a contact's name.

That is one of the best advantages of Boost Mobile, its ability to avoid contracts and its flexibility in the payment options.

The moment I added my Gmail account on my Droid X, I constantly received notifications of new emails. At first it was cool. But it got very annoying when, in the middle of the night, the notification sound just kept on buzzing. I have a very busy inbox, and being notified every now and then may not be the best thing to do. So I looked for ways to turn off email notification on my Droid X.

There was really no solution in disabling the email notification without turning off the Gmail account itself. I was hoping for something like receiving the emails yet without being notified. So far, there is nothing I found online.

The best solution to stop the Droid X notifications, is to "uncheck" the Gmail account. To do that:

1. Tap the "settings" button.

2. Then scroll down and tap "accounts." Here you will find the different accounts you have set -- like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Yahoo...etc.

3. Select and tap the "Google" or "Gmail" account.

4. Now you are in the Data and Synchronization screen. Uncheck the "Synch Gmail", but leave the "Synch Contacts" checked.

That's it. Exit the screen and your Droid X will not be getting the email notifications anymore. If you wanna check your gmails again, just follow the same steps, but this time, check the the "Synch Gmail" to activate it.

Note: If any of you have other solutions, please leave it in the comment section. Thanks.

It looks like Google is really up for the tablet battle against the Apple's iPad. Rumors are getting louder about the coming of the Google Tablet, a Chrome OS tablet that will be manufactured by HTC and be launched on Verizon.

Download Squad revealed that the tablet may go on sale on November 26th, 2010, in time for Black Friday 2010.

So what will the Google tablet pack for hardware? While our source didn't provide any specifics, my guess is that the device could be based on NVidia's Tegra 2 platform and sport a 1280x720 multitouch display, 2GB of RAM, minimum 32GB SSD, WiFi/Bluetooth/LTE connectivity, GPS, webcam, and possibly expandable storage via a multi-card reader.
