Scientists. These folks keep trying to make the world a better place… even for the jolly old elf.
The team at General Electric have taken a scene right out of Arthur Christmas… You know, where Santa’s oldest son makes a space ship for the elf team to deliver presents… What? You haven’t seen that movie? Ok. I won’t spoil it.
This new sleigh from GE is high tech (the picture below links to a 360 degree view of the sleigh.) Illinois Valley Cellular has sent the folks at General Electric a Motorola RAZR MAXX (with car dock) to equip Santa with Google Maps, Nationwide Coverage, and Smart Actions (for amazing battery life during his trip.) You can pick up a RAZR MAXX too for just $ 149.99 with Premium Choice Unlimited Rates.
New features of the sleigh include:
- A thin cooling solution that can improve jet engine aerodynamics and outfit Santa with a cooler, thinner laptop.
- Air Traffic Management Technology to help Santa and the reindeer steer clear of the planes en route on Christmas Eve.
- An Electric Traction Motor with MEMS switching technology to quickly and efficiently transfer power of Santa’s sleigh over to the electric motor to give the reindeer a break.
- 3-D printed sleigh blades for a more aerodynamic design to improve energy efficiency paired with a tough, flexible fabric to give Santa greater lift and maneuverability.
- An upgraded sleigh frame made from GE’s high temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) that will save energy and time by enabling flight into outer space and back.
- GE’s Durathon battery for reliably powering the accouterments in Santa’s sleigh. The battery can function under extreme temperature conditions. – GENERAL ELECTRIC
Most of us have faced the dreaded “Low Battery” notification at least once before. Motorola has developed an Android Application that prevents that notification from showing up prematurely, and much more. Smart Actions is available as a preinstalled application on the Motorola RAZR MAXX.
“Smart Actions can extend battery life and keep your phone adjusted to your changing needs, based on your location, the time of day, or other factors.”
This application uses your phone’s array of sensors and functions to extend battery life when not in use, read text messages when driving, silence at night or during meetings, play music during a workout, or just about any other routine you may have.
Smart Actions will also monitor your behaviors and give you suggestions based on actions you frequent. The example below shows a common, popular Smart Action – the Low Battery Saver. Many other preset Smart Action profiles are also included in the device, but if none suit your needs, you can completely customize them.

Illinois Valley Cellular has taken steps to alert you, through your mobile device, in the event of an emergency. Working with the FCC, you will be notified in “three classes of text-based alerts, such as Presidential, Imminent Threat (e.g., tornado), and Amber Alerts.”
In order to receive CMAS alerts, you need a compatible handset. The following handsets can receive alerts:
BlackBerry Curve 9350
BlackBerry Torch 9850
BlackBerry Bold 9930
HTC One V
LG Optimus Plus
Motorola Defy XT
Motorola Milestone X2
We will begin testing the CMAS alert system on Wednesday, September 19th, from 10am to 3pm. If you have one of these handsets, you will receive test messages on your device.

Here at Illinois Valley Cellular in R&D we have realized that all email providers don’t work with the stock email on the Android phones. In searching we found a great replacement email client called K9 Mail. One of the providers we know is not working is MTCO. Below is a walk through of how to set up a MTCO email using K9 Mail.
Last Friday I was trying to figure out a way to make it easier to use my phone in the car while driving. I walked out front to the Sales office and saw the Motorola Roadster. I purchased this and haven’t looked back yet. The Roadster allows you to answer calls hands free in the car with your voice. You can also use the FM tuner to talk to contacts through the speakers in the car. The Roadster also allows users to text hands free.
For the convenience of hands free talking, The Roadster is $69.99 plus tax (only if purchased at the Illinois Valley Cellular Wireless Solutions Center.) Purchased elsewhere prices could be as high as $99.99 and up.
Totally worth it.
