Results for Q4 2011 Smartphone Sales in the US are Here

by: Christine TorralbaJanuary 20, 2012

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. According to Nielsen, iOS only earns about 30% of the market, which is equivalent to [...]

Tizen to Merge with Bada. Is This a Threat to Android or WP7?

by: LucianJanuary 17, 2012

 

Remember Meego? Poor ol’ Meego has gone through a lot of transitions, from the original Maemo, to being merged with Intel’s Moblin, to now being merged once again with Samsung’s own OS, Bada, which will be made open source when it will be merged with Meego, and form Tizen. 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 the market? Samsun has at least several main reasons why it wants to do this.

Samsung wants [...]

Apple Sues Everyone, Backfires; Results to European Sales Ban

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 14, 2011

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 (namely the iPhone, 3G, 3GS, 4, iPad 3G and iPad 2 3G) infringe a patent by [...]

Samsung Becomes Smartphone King Thanks to Android

by: LucianOctober 28, 2011

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 next quarter. Even if they sell 30 million, they should still fall short of matching Samsung.

All this is really not [...]

Apple Dethroned – the New King of Smartphones is Samsung

by: Will G.October 22, 2011

For the masses who believed that the iPhone was the king of sales – check out what Samsung is now so proud of. According to recent reports, Samsung is now the new leader in the Smartphone business, with approximately 20 million smartphones that were sold in Quarter 3 alone, according to the Wall Street Journal. With these statistics, Samsung is now up 500% from last year, in Quarter 2 sales.

Samsung Goes After the iPhone 4S With a Chart Highlighting the Differences

by: Matthew SabatiniOctober 14, 2011

With the release of the iPhone 4S, Samsung did their part in promoting their own device, the Galaxy S II. Although many people were pretty disappointed by the release of the 4S, Samsung knows that it still poses as a threat in the market. Therefore, they have created a nice little comparison chart that highlights the Samsung Galaxy S II’s triumph over the iPhone 4S. Take a look for yourself below:

Main Differences

Samsung is quick to point out that the Galaxy S II has the following characteristics in which they believe will help the Galaxy S II beat out the iPhone 4S:

Sony Ericsson Is Shooting Themselves In The Foot – A Critical Look at Sony Ericsson

by: RandyOctober 14, 2011

 

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 [...]

Why Apple Is Very Afraid Of Samsung

by: RandyOctober 7, 2011

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

The MSC Daniela was built by Samsung Shipbuilding & Heavy industries Co. Ltd in South Korea and delivered to Mediterranean Shipping Company in December 2009. In terms of TEU capacity, she is the largest container ship ever built and able to accomodate up to 14,000 twenty-foot-equivalent containers, and is over 366 meters in length
