Using RSS reader
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a
family of web feed formats used to
publish frequently updated content
such as blog entries, news headlines
or podcasts. An RSS document, which
is called a feed, web feed, or channel,
contains either a summary of content
from an associated web site or the full
text. RSS makes it possible for people
to keep up with their favourite web
sites automatically. It is much easier
than checking them manually.
The user subscribes to a feed by
entering the feed’s link into the
reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a
browser that initiates the subscription
process. The reader checks the user’s
subscribed feeds regularly for new
content, downloading any updates
that it finds.

Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Please read these simple guidelines.
Not following these guidelines may
be dangerous or illegal.
Exposure to radio frequency
energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This mobile phone model GD510
has been designed to comply with
applicable safety requirements for
exposure to radio waves. These
requirements are based on scientific
guidelines that include safety margins
designed to assure the safety of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
• The radio wave exposure guidelines
employ a unit of measurement
known as the Specific Absorption
Rate, or SAR. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standardised
methods with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all used frequency
bands.
• While there may be differences
between the SAR levels of various LG
phone models, they are all designed
to meet the relevant guidelines for
exposure to radio waves.
• The SAR limit recommended by
the International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) is 2W/kg averaged over 10g
of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model
phone tested by DASY4 for use at
the ear is 1.29 W/kg (10 g) and when
worn on the body is 1.08 W/kg(10 g).
• SAR data information for residents in
countries/regions that have adopted
the SAR limit recommended by the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), which is 1.6 W/kg
averaged over 1g of tissue.
