In an exclusive interview with the Telegraph, RIM's CEO, Thorsten Heins, confesses that the company doesn't have the the ability to compete with larger manufacturers that crank out handsets and most look at ways to get more budget smartphones out into the market. One of the ways they are now considering doing this is through the licensing of BB10.
The latest development sees a ban on all Motorola Android devices in Germany, under the basis that these phones violate a patent that has to do with FAT storage.
Then, something changed and somehow we find ourselves here today with Nokia revealing an operating loss of 826 million Euro. That's right around $1 billion US. What happened?
It's official, smartphones have moved beyond the toys of the wealthy, nerdy or business elite- though this probably isn't shocking news to anyone. According to information from Nielson, 53% of consumers in the US are purchasing smartphones, and 2 out of 3 new phones purchased last month in the United States were of the smart variety.
There's a lot of high-tech stuff going on in the recent Avengers movie, but perhaps even more interesting is the glimpse we get inito the future of computing through those user interfaces.
It appears like the boundaries between the physical and digital worlds are getting thinner and thinner. Microsoft's Applied Sciences team has shown off their prototype 3D desktop which allows you to interact with the objects on a transparent screen with something called “view-dependent, depth-corrected gaze”.
I'm not sure how Steve Jobs would feel about this. He said that the 9.7-inch screen of the iPad was the "minimum size required to create great tablet apps," but it looks like Apple is genuinely entertaining the idea of producing a tablet with a smaller display.
Now it seems that both Apple and Samsung might be making a move down this road as well, as both are actively looking into a hi-tech spray that make smartphones waterproof, and such technology could even arrive with the iPhone 5.
It’s raining smartphones at the ongoing CES 2012 and Sony has also jumped in on the action with their latest additions into the company’s popular Xperia line of smartphones. The four new smartphones, two among which will be released overseas in the coming months, have been beautifully designed and appear to be targeted at all the shutterbugs out there.
When we cover shows like CES, there's always an anxiety for us not to overlook or miss something worthy, or simply deserving special attention. With a small team on the show floor just walking around a vast sea of gadgetry within acres of indoor Vegasness, it's easy to let things slip by.
It's clear that the Apple iPhone, particularly the iPhone 5, was a hot topic this past year. As was that ancient Windows Mobile 6.5 that for some strange reason. But best of all was the $99 college note slate. Don't we wish we had that? Maybe in 2012, as with the iPhone 5.
rguments of both analysts tend to agree that the openness of Android as its strong point is suddenly nowhere to be found when business and market considerations prevail. Sure, from a business standpoint, it really doesn't matter what platform and development models are used in a given product: it's an impact of a product itself that has an importance.
The tech blogs Netbooknews and Pocketlint both recently reported that in China they have a Nokia N9 phone running seven different OSes, switchable by the fling of a finger.
The legal battles between Apple and Samsung just won't stop. The battle between the two largest tech innovators has crossed continents and oceans even to land in an Australian courtroom. It has been reported that Samsung has recently requested to see Apple's source code for the iPhone 4S firmware.
The Apple iPad may still reign supreme in the world of consumer tablets, but the Android side of the equation is quickly picking up steam. While early Android tablets only ran on blown-up versions of the smartphone OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb introduced a tablet-centric version of the platform with several tablet-centric optimizations. And the first to take advantage of these optimizations was the Motorola Xoom.
We're hearing that internal testing at HP led to the loading of webOS onto an Apple iPad and, well, it blew the TouchPad out of the water. The precise details are quite scarce, but we're hearing that webOS ran "twice as fast" on the Apple iPad hardware than it did on the HP TouchPad. This leads us to believe that it's the hardware, and not the software, that led to the ultimate demise of webOS at HP.
Motorola Mobility has signed on an agreement stating they'll stop any solicitation of other proposals as of Aug. 15. The contract goes on to say that Google will pay Motorola Mobility $2.5 billion if the deal falls through, and Motorola Mobility will pay $375 million if it decides not to sell to Google.
This is a total game changer. When Motorola split off its Motorola Mobility department into a separate business, we just thought that they were looking to give the handset segment a more direct focus. As it turns out, they may have been gearing up for today. Google has announced it will be buying Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion.
German courts have ruled in Apple’s favour in the California company’s latest lawsuit against Samsung. The ruling states that no Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets will be sold in the European Union (Netherlands excluded) due to alleged infringement of both patents and style. Any store who infringes on the ban and continues to sell the device will face either $350,000 fines or imprisonment of management.
Just when I thought Android was on the cusp of giving the iPad a run for its money, there's word that companies are scaling back their Android tablet operations in light of less than stellar sales. This comes by way of DigiTimes, which is saying these companies are instead shifting their attention toward "supersized" Android smartphone instead.
So, in the battle royale involving a little green bot, a half-bitten produce, and some Canadian fruit, who reigns supreme? Nielsen has compiled its statistics for the period covering November 2010 to January 2011 and is presenting it in the form of a couple colorful stacked bar graphs.
Yeah, the Verizon iPhone 4 is here, but it's not really all that different from the GSM-friendly AT&T version. Most enthusiasts are more interested in the possibilities of the iPhone 5, but what are the latest rumors telling us?
The Kyocera Echo, to be sold exclusively through Sprint, is the only Google Android smartphone that comes with two touchscreen displays.
CherryPal's claim to fame came when they released the world's first $99 laptop with a 7-inch screen back in 2009. The 400 MHz cpu with 256 GB RAM and 2GB of flash memory was by no means a workhorse, but it didn't need to be. CherryPal makes devices a couple generations behind the current markets offerings, this is because they target lower income families, educational institutions and "emerging markets."
XPERIA X10. XPERIA Arc. XPERIA Play. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Sony Ericsson is very much cozying up with Google Android, but now the company has made it official. I wouldn't go so far as to say SE is putting a ring on it, but they are sounding pretty committed.
If you listen to some people, they'll tell you that the tablet is a relatively new phenomenon. That tablets really only became relevant when Apple came forward with the iPad. Well, Motorola begs to differ, and it has come forward with qutie a clever little video of its own to show off the evolution of the tablet.
When it comes to the Nexus phones from Google, it's clear that they quickly become the reference design for other smartphones using the same OS. The Nexus S, for example, is the first to do Android 2.3 Gingerbread. So, what's going to happen with the next iteration?
That's what you call synergy. Or leveraging your other brands. Or going all out with your marketing. Whatever you want to call it, it seems that Microsoft is taking this whole Windows Phone 7 business pretty seriously and it's not afraid to give out some free stuff to attract your interest.
It seems that we hear about a new lawsuit every day and it's getting more and more confusing by the minute. Apple is suing HTC for over 20 different software patents. Kodak is suing Samsung for something about image storage and movie previews.
CherryPal is now shipping their $188 Android tablet. It’s less than half the price of an iPad, and the company says early user experiences of the CherryPad are “extremely positive.” With Android 2.1 on board, the CherryPad has full access to the Android Market. We’ve heard of other tablets not getting full access, so this is something substantial with all things considered.
The Apple iPad has quickly become ubiquitous and Android tablets will surely enjoy some popularity too. Not to sit idly by, Steve Ballmer is quick to point out that Microsoft has its stake in this arena too. He's promising that the "new slates with Windows on them" will be shown off to world this Christmas.
When Google released the Android operating system it was never intended to be used on large screen tablet devices. Some companies went ahead regardless and manufactured tablets with Android in order to create some type of competition for Apple’s iPad, whether that competition really existed or not in terms of sales is another story, regardless, these companies are definitely getting attention in the media.
RIM has today announced the BlackBerry Playbook tablet running on the newly revealed BlackBerry Tablet OS. The Adobe Flash touting PlayBook is doing everything Apple missed in their first round, but with millions of units already sold, Apple isn’t breaking a sweat yet. The PlayBook has dual HD cameras for the highest-quality video conferencing available from any handheld device.
The Apple iPad has taken the world by storm and the Samsung Galaxy Tab is garnering some attention in its own right. Not to be lost in the mix, it seems that Research in Motion is ready to take the wraps off its own tablet offering, the so-called BlackPad.
When the iPad first landed it created a reaction, not only for those who intended to use it, but for every manufacturer that makes portable computer devices. And with that said, the battle began.
Gizmodo got their hands on one of the first BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphones from RIM. Their verdict? The screen has such a low-res, it’s like going back to SD after watching HD for a year. It’s a 480x360 display and a “grisly sight,” the text is jaggy and ugly when compared to an Android or iPhone display.
The iPhone 4G is one of the most talked about smartphones of the year, so much so, that professional design firms attempt to create concepts in what they believe would be the next-generation of the device. It's also a good way for them to show off their talent.
Now that the iPad has been unveiled to the public and in the hands of an elite few, what more speculation can we conjure about those crazy kids at Cupertino? It just so happens that I got a call from Aaron Vronko at Rapid Repair. As the service manager, Aaron and his team dissect roughly 500 iPhones and iPods per week. Who better to speak on mythical Apple products than someone who rips their guts out all day?
