samsung-webos

According to a report from Digitimes, Samsung is considering buying webOS from HP. Some people think that this is because of Google buying Motorola, and while this may be true to some extent, Samsung... have been weighing their options for a while now.

They made the Bada OS as a back-up to Android, which is not doing too bad right now, out-selling WP7, but I’m sure they’d li...

fujitsu-F-01D

I was just saying a few days ago that rugged mobile devices should be the future, and now we see one more upcoming “rugged” device that will make its debut in September, except this time... it’s not a phone, but a Honeycomb tablet, made by Fujitsu, that will be water-resistant. But why is Fujitsu making a rugged tablet, anyway?

According to Forrester, a research company, Amazon tablets will dominate the Android tablet market by selling up to 5 million units by the end of this year alone, and a year from now people should recognize... Android tablets as Amazon tablets. Forrester doesn’t have a perfect prediction record, with their last year’s prediction that the sales of the iPad will plummet soon after launch, but could they b...

Google-TV-007

Google TV didn’t start very well last year. There are several reasons for that, and probably 2 of the biggest ones are the pricing and lack of content. The Logitech Revue set top box was priced... at $299, which was %50 higher than the popular Boxee Box, and 300% higher than Roku. The fact that the networks started blocking their content on Google TV didn’t help matters, either. But that...

I have a dream, and that dream is that a few years from now, most smartphones will be “rugged”, ¬†which means being water resistant, dust-proof, scratch-proof, and last but not least, shock... resistant. If the phone still looks good, it’s not much more expensive than without those features, then who wouldn’t want their phones to be like that?

Smartphones are becomin...

AT&T is planning on launching their LTE network later this year, and they want to do it in a big way – as big as HTC’s upcoming 4.5″ qHD phone called Holiday. The phone will also... have a dual core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon CPU, just like the one in HTC Sensation. It will also come with¬†1GB of memory, an 8 MP rear camera (with LED flash), a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 802.11b/g/n...

The New York Post has reported that the Amazon Android-based tablet will be “hundreds less” than an iPad 2. As the HP TouchPad showed us, consumers are interested if the price is right,... even about a device they didn’t even know they want until that point. With a strategy that takes those people into account, Amazon might boost the Android tablet market share overnight.

HTC was the first manufacturer to put a skin on Android, and arguably they did a pretty good job at it. While everyone else has been scrambling to catch-up to their first version of the Sense UI, they... continued improving it and making it more visually appealing with the 3.0 version, and this fall they are going to launch new handsets with their seemingly overhauled Sense 3.5 UI.

Brace yourselves Verizon customers. I’ve got some bad news for you. Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy S II isn’t coming to Verizon – at all. If this news won’t make any of you happy,... I’m sure it will at least make someone happy – and that’s Motorola.¬†With Samsung Galaxy S II out of the way, Motorola will be free to market their upcoming Droid Bionic.

Now that HP is buying Autonomy, a UK company, rumors also abound with ARM being acquired as well. ARM selling out would be a catastrophic decision not only for Android, but also in general for everyone... else, especially when it comes to selling out to these 3 companies: Intel, Oracle, or Apple.

They would end up jacking up the prices in the short term, and killing ARM slowly in the lo...
