It would be great to have a global profile system where any application can
change the profile of the phone. i.e GPS based on location, via an
appointment in the calendar of via user selection, etc. I know GPS based
profiles have been discussed before were if you are in at work the phone
will switch to silent, but it would be great if this was a system wide
option. I know that with my current nokia if you press the power button you
will get a menu to either change the profile of the phone or switch it off.
It would be great if we could implement this feature but also allow other
software applications to make use of this as well. On top of this we will
also need an application were you can make profiles and set ring tone,
volume etc.
