We’ve seen plenty of hilarious videos making fun of the Apple vs Android/Samsung rivalry already, so it’s really no surprise to see a new short clip pop up on YouTube to portray the fight between these two giants.
One of the reasons why people invest in tablets is to curl up with their device at the end of the day and enjoy some reading. Of course, lugging around a 10-inch tablet isn’t exactly very comfortable, nor is it very natural to look at. Seven-inch tablets, on the other hand, are a whole lot more subtle and can fit into bags and jacket pockets far more easily. Amazon’s latest tablet, the Kindle Fire HD, not only lets you enjoy a good read before bed but also lets you indulge in a bit of movie watching, audio listening, and Web…
While not comparable with Apple’s U.S. $1.05 billion win – which isn’t satisfying to either party by the way, for different reasons, obviously – the fact that Apple has to pay Samsung’s UK legal fees has to mean something for South Korean giant and the public.
Though Steve Jobs is famously known to have disliked the idea of 7-inch tablets, you can’t deny that there is a market for them. A 7-incher, such as the Google Nexus 7 (made by ASUS), is a whole lot more portable than larger 10-inch tablets and provides the same ebook reading and multimedia consumption experience as larger tablets do. It can easily fit in your hand, in your jacket pocket, and in your bag without your looking awkward in public. Naturally, Apple doesn’t want to be left out of that market. It has released the iPad mini, a tablet that…
Now that the tablet market has offerings from all three major tech companies (Microsoft, Google, Apple), it’s time to find out which one makes the most bang out of our buck. So we set out to answer the question, which tablet makes the most money? The Microsoft Surface, the Google Nexus 7, or the Apple iPad.
Google’s $12.5 billion Motorola purchase is yet to bring any positive results for the company. Not only isn’t Motorola profitable yet but we’re not to see any Motorola “Nexus” devices for quite a while
Remember how Apple lost its Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction quest in the UK earlier this year? In short, a UK judge found that the Samsung Android tablet is “not as cool” as the iPad – it’s still a win – and therefore the device was not banned from selling in the region.
USB chargers are one of those things that we all own and don’t really think about. Many people probably own a bunch of them. One for work, one for home, and one for the car at least. A study was recently conducted to see which chargers were the safest and offered the best charging experience. Spoiler alert, Apple didn’t win. Neither did any Android OEM.
Google unveiled new Nexus products yesterday, including new tablets such as the Samsung Nexus 10 and the 32GB Asus Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi and Cellular models), which will be the main weapons of the Search giant against Apple’s iPad and iPad mini models this holiday season.
Market analytics firm Strategy Analytics says Android may not exactly be small fry in the tablet market, compared with Apple’s iPad. As of third quarter of 2012, the platform accounted for 41.3% of the market, which can be attributed to a “collective weight” that different manufacturers contribute toward the platform.
