Despite the fact that the US smartphone market is thickly populated by Android, Apple’s own iOS platform was able to regain some of its losses in the recently concluded quarter. Based on data collected by statistical firm Nielsen, the 44.5% of consumers who bought a smartphone between October and December chose an iPhone. Prior to the iPhone 4S launch in October, iPhone only had a ranking of 25.1%. Alarmingly, 57% purchased the iPhone 4S when it first came out in the market. As of this writing, Android still holds the commanding lead over iOS, standing at 46.3% US smartphone users….

All Bada applications will work in Tizen, and if developers know how to make Bada apps, they should be able to make Tizen apps, too. But why does Samsung want to support yet another OS? Or better yet, what are they trying to achieve by pushing Bada/Tizen even harder into…

If you’ve been following our website, you should remember our news on Apple’s lost battle against Proview Technology (Shenzhen). It was a recent post we shared less than 5 days ago. Anyway, in line with that post, we just found out Apple is currently in the process of suing almost all of its biggest competitors in the tablet/mobile phone field.  While this goes against Apple’s previous complaint of anti-competitiveness of Samsung and Motorola patents, it is all too familiar to the infringement case on the iPad. True enough, a court in Germany has given a ruling that Apple’s 3G-enabled products…

Apple had a short victory last quarter, when they surpassed Nokia (they were already ahead of Samsung in smartphones), but it looks like nothing will be able to stop Samsung’s skyrocketing growth. Samsung sold 27 million smartphones in Q3 this year, and it’s looking at selling around 35 million next quarter, now that Galaxy S II is on 3 carriers in USA, Galaxy Nexus will be able soon for Verizon, and we might even see the Galaxy S II HD by the end of the quarter. On the other hand, Apple is expected to sell only about 25 million iPhones…

  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…

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 – “what does Samsung make?” – and the general response will be “electronics”. Is that so? The truth is, Samsung is involved in much more than just mobile phones and electronics. They are a massive company in Korea, and they are…
