I have always been a fan of Sony products. Back in high school, Sony used to be the preferred Walkman music player. They revolutionised the world with the minidisc, which unfortunately didn’t catch on in the rest of the world. Sony jumped on the Android bandwagon and has produced a few of the most recognized Android phones, namely the Xperia Arc and Xperia Play.Sony Is Still Trying To Please Everybody
The Playstation brand – to this day – remains very valuable. Despite Microsoft’s Kinect taking the main stage throughout 2011, I am confident in the Playstation brand. My only reservation about the Xperia Play is that it isn’t [...]
There have been many articles floating around in cyberspace about Apple fearing Samsung, and yet, there are none like the one you are about to read. Most of them will talk about patents; I prefer to talk about facts. Here’s my two cents on this issue.Samsung Is Bigger Than You Think
Ask any Tom, Dick, Harry or Jane [...]
If anyone were to ask me – which company took Android to the next level – it would be Motorola.
Why? It’s simple, really. Without Motorola creating the original Motorola Droid, Android would not be where it is today.
Verizon played a strong part in providing the intial marketing boost, but it was Motorola that made the “OG” Droid. All manufacturers owe it to Motorola for spearheading Android forward.
Since then, Android has gained a strong following in the U.S., and soon after, it became a global Apple market-share-grabbing phenomenon.
The Android Activation video says it all:
The Mind-Capturing “iDon’t” Campaign
LG is no longer a foreign name among Android lovers. They have set their footprints in the heart of consumers — or have they?
The First Dual-Core Phones, Half The Excitement
The LG Optimus 2X was one of the first dual-core phone to hit the market, back in early 2011. I remember it well, as I switched from the Samsung Captivate to it. It was nice to handle and browsed impressively fast, but not without its own share of growing pains.
Initially, I was more impressed by the dual-core, dual-channel memory LG Optimus 3D, but that was delayed at that point of time, so I decided to settle with the Optimus 2X. It was generally a good device and very easy to [...]
In 2010, Samsung made headlines with their flagship device – the Samsung Galaxy S, which sold over 10 million units. They also had the privilege to introduce the Nexus S – the Google reference device – in the same year, and that helped concrete their dominance in the Android category. Without a doubt, the 1GHz Hummingbird processor really helped them soar high!
Industry experts, ABI Research, most recently took the Samsung Galaxy S II apart, and concluded that “Samsung took many risks by combining all these new technologies into one phone. ABI Research believes those risks will pay off; the Galaxy S II sets a new benchmark for almost every category on which [...]
It was in August last year that I contemplated purchasing my first Android phone. At that time, I loved the HTC unibody Aluminium concept and I was totally sold to the HTC Sense coloured bokeh look. I became a proud owner of a HTC Legend.
At that time, the HTC Desire was also a phenomenon on its own. The HTC Desire was the cream of the crop. It defeated the iPhone 4 to become T3’s “2010 Phone of the Year” and propelled HTC to the top, with them receiving accolades like the “Tech Brand of the Year”. You could imagine Peter Chou smiling ear-to-ear, while Steve Jobs must not have been very pleased about the loss.
After the Desire, HTC decided to milk the Desire [...]
