DUBLIN, Ireland (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
tawkon, the only app that notifies users of high-levels of cell phone radiation without limiting their mobile phone usage, announces today at the Dublin Web Summit that the tawkon app saved cell phone users from 10 million minutes of high radiation exposure. The app promotes healthier living by warning mobile users when cell phone radiation levels peak when the device is close to the body.
Thus far, tawkon has protected over 100 million calls, with 10 million minutes noted for saving users from high radiation levels. In fact, 90% of the time that a cell phone is in use during a call, it operates at low radiation levels which indicates that the phone has a solid connection to the network. However, during 10% of a call users are exposed to high radiation levels because the phone has to work harder to connect to the network. It is the high radiation spikes that pose as a health risk to users, especially when the device is up against the body. Just one minute of exposure to high levels of cell phone radiation is equivalent to five hours of exposure to low radiation levels. tawkon warns users when cell phone radiation levels are high so that users can switch to a headset, speakerphone or change locations to protect them from direct exposure.
“With over 100 million calls and 10 million minutes noted to save cell phone users from high levels of radiation, tawkon prides itself on allowing users around the world to continue talking and enjoy their mobile phones in a smart way,” says Gil Friedlander, Co-Founder & CEO of tawkon. “The tawkon app, as in “talk-on”, was created to encourage more cell phone talk time but in a responsible and safe way."
The tawkon app works by collecting and extracting the internal measurements of the user’s phone that offer insight into radiation output including network type, band-GSM, UMTS, CDMA, channel, signal strength, phone model, and more.
Utilizing patent pending technology tawkon calculates the phone’s radiation level and hence the user exposure – SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). SAR is a universal measurement for the amount of radiation being absorbed by the user. tawkon’s technology has been tested in an FCC certified RF (Radio Frequency) lab with state-of-the-art equipment.
