News Flash: PiP Video Calling Features Coming To WhatsApp

News Flash: PiP Video Calling Features Coming To WhatsApp

More interesting features are being added on WhatsApp and the latest awaiting to be included is the PiP video calling feature. It's already available on WhatsApp beta version 2.17.265 for Android devices that run Android O Developer Preview. In case you want to know the meaning of PiP video call, see answer below.

PiP means "Picture-in-Picture" mode. So according to an official tweet from WhatsApp Beta Info Twitter handle, the feature would let you minimize the video call window into a smaller window so you can keep your video conversation going while answering another WhatsApp conversation.

For now, it's unclear if the small window with the video chat is a floating window that can be dragged around, nor do we know if the video conference would continue even after minimizing WhatsApp. If so, this would be one of the first video calling apps to allow this type of multi-tasking on a smartphone platform.

Nokia Woes Continues: HMD Global CEO Arto Nummela Resigns

Nokia Woes Continues: HMD Global CEO Arto Nummela Resigns

HMD Global said on Wednesday its CEO Arto Nummela is leaving the company with immediate effect. The announcement comes a little over a year after HMD Global acquired rights to use Nokia's brand for mobile phones and tablets.

The Finnish company didn't share why Nummela is already leaving, but said the decision was mutual. Nummela joined HMD Global last year after spending more than a decade at Nokia and then Microsoft, serving a range of top leadership roles in sales and marketing. As you would expect, he was at the forefront of things when HMD announced the official return of the Nokia brand in December last year.

HMD President Florian Seiche has been appointed to the role of acting CEO, the company added. Much like Nummela, Seiche also joined HMD Global from Microsoft and Nokia. Prior to that, he was the President of HTC and group director of French telecom Orange.

In a prepared statement to the press, Sam Chin, Chairman of the Board, HMD Global Oy said, "Arto Nummela has played a key role in the creation of the HMD Global operation, building the team and launching our first products. On behalf of the whole Board, I thank Arto for his contribution and wish him well in his future endeavors." It's unclear what Nummela plans to do next.

The departure of a senior executive never looks good for a company, and Nummela's move is no different. HMD Global is increasingly trying to revive the Nokia branding. Earlier this year, the company launched the Nokia 3310 to much fanfare and also announced the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 Android-powered smartphones. ref

News Flash: SON Closes Samsung Office in Nigeria

News Flash: SON Closes Samsung Office in Nigeria

The Standards Organisation of Nigeria on Tuesday sealed the premises of Samsung West Africa in Victoria Island, Lagos, for failure to register some of its products being marketed in Nigeria.

Head of Public Relations of SON, Mr Bola Fashina, said this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

Fashina said that the action was in accordance with the provisions of the SON Act 14 of 2015.

According to him, the Act provides for every product imported into Nigeria to be registered with SON for traceability and confirmation of quality status.

Fashina said that SON records showed that many Samsung products in the Nigerian markets were not registered.

He explained that the facility would be reopened once the company registered all its products as required by law.

“We are in the era of ensuring ease of doing business in Nigeria within the laws of the land,” Fashina said.

He said that the representatives of the company claimed ignorance of the need to register the products, and that they did not import nor sold products but only marketing them.

Fashina said that it was the duty of the distributors to register the products. via

According to the description in the image, it reads... "Etisalat is now 9Mobile here for you, here for 9ja"😁

Now looking at the logo, I think it's fantastic and simple. It is designed in the shape of the number "9" but with a break at some point. What that means is unclear to me but am sensing it could be the recent breakup from their traditional name. Well, am not sure yet.

You Can Now Use UBA Naira Debit Card For International Transactions

You Can Now Use UBA Naira Debit Card For International Transactions

Hello guys, You can now use your UBA Naira Debit Card to shop internationally BUT for a Limited Period. That's the good news we have from United Bank for Africa this week.
UBA Naira Mastercard
It seems things are getting better in the banking sector following the Naira's gradual improvement. Some banks are now lifting limitations placed on our very own Naira master card. Meaning you don't need to stress yourself any longer in order to get a barter virtual master card because you can now use your naira master card to shop online.

Recall Ecobank was the first to lift the limitation from $300 to $3000 per month and Guaranty Trust Bank ( GTB) also followed suite by lifting their own ban. Although some people are not still able to use their naira Mastercard to pay for goods and services online. A reader of this blog contacted me yesterday and narrated how the bank declined the transaction he made on Amazon with GTBank Mastercard and you come to wonder why they are still restricting some sites up till now.

So, UBA have lifted the limitation on their naira debit card from $100 to $1000 per month but for a limited time which is 31st of August 2017.

Meanwhile, it's still unclear why they decide to make it within a short period of time but let's hope they extend it further.
