Dual ecosystem phones coming soon from Jolla

by: nathanAugust 20, 2012
This is a story about Jolla. It may sound like an infamous Linux distribution, but it's not. It's a Helsinki (Nokia ground zero!) based startup and it reminds us a little of Saygus. Jolla wants to use MeeGo, Nokia's orphaned ecosystem and deliver the world an Android-friendly smartphone.

How Android can save RIM and Nokia

by: Simon HillAugust 16, 2012
We chart the dramatic fall from grace for RIM and Nokia and ask if it's too late for Android adoption to save them. Would Android have made more sense than Windows Phone and BB10? Is it too late to switch to Android now?

Nokia poll says QWERTY keyboards still rule

by: LucianAugust 11, 2012
Nokia's online poll shows that the majority of users prefer QWERTY keyboards over touchscreen phones. But is this representative of the entire mobile market, or is Nokia looking at data skewed toward the old way of using smartphones?

Digia buys Qt from Nokia, promises support for Android, iOS & Windows 8

by: LucianAugust 10, 2012
Developers have been concerned about the future of Qt now that Nokia does not have a use for it anymore. Fortunately, they've decided to sell it to Digia, which has committed to take good care of Qt and further develop it. Digia goes as far as promise that they will include cross-platform support. Could we be looking at a future in which Qt enables apps that run on Android, iOS and Windows 8?

IDC report shows Samsung leading the way in Q2 smartphone shipments

by: Ankit BanerjeeAugust 2, 2012

IDC (International Data Corporation) is a global market research and analysis firm that specializes in IT and telecommunication technology. Along with predictions and forecasts, the market intelligence firm periodically releases reports showing the current state of the telecommunication market. After an IDC report confirming Android’s dominance on the world stage, it’s more good news for Android and the leading Android device manufacturer, Samsung.

According to the latest report released by IDC, Samsung is leading the way in smartphone shipments in the second quarter of 2012, extending, for now, its lead over Apple, with other device manufacturers like HTC [...]

Android drops to 56%, iOS rises to 33%, and Blackberry falls to 6.5% in Q2 2012 in U.S.

by: LucianJuly 30, 2012

According to Strategy Analytics‘ latest research, smartphone sales in the U.S. dropped by 5 million, down to 24 million in the 2nd quarter of the year.  The reasons for this sharp decline in smartphone sales include:

“A volatile economy, maturing penetration of smartphones among contract mobile subscribers, and major operators tightening their upgrade policies to enhance profits […].”

It also seems iOS surged to 33% from 23% a year ago, by stealing an extra 10% from the others – half from Android, which dropped from 61% to 56% and half from Blackberry (now less than 7%) and “others” (WP7, [...]

Nokia kills Meltemi, its last chance to compete with Android for the mass-market

by: LucianJuly 26, 2012

Around the same time when Nokia announced their partnership with Microsoft to use WP7 as a replacement for their Symbian S60 OS for high-end devices, we got word of a Linux-based operating system called Meltemi, that was supposed to replace Symbian S40.

Symbian S40 is on all of Nokia’s “feature phones” for the mass-market, with a price range between $50 and $200 (unlocked). The operating system is running on 2 billion smartphones today, and it still holds on to about 20% market share in Q1 2012, according to research firm IDC. But that market share is falling rapidly, even in countries where Nokia used to be very strong, with 60%-70% of the market. [...]

Google attempts to join HTC as co-defendant against Nokia

by: Mike AndriciJuly 22, 2012

We’ve covered the Nokia initial filing against HTC, as well as HTC’s response to Nokia in a couple of previous articles, but just in case you only need a quick sum up, what you need to know is that Nokia filed suit against HTC (and also an ITC complaint) back in May 2012 for the alleged breaking of no less than 16 patents owned by the Finnish smartphone manufacturer. HTC responded a couple of weeks back and rose a FRAND (Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory) licensing and patent exhaustion defense. So far, this all seems to have nothing to do with Google, right?

Well, as it turns out, the Search giant has a totally different opinion on [...]

Samsung smartphone sales almost double the iPhone sales in Q2 2012

by: LucianJuly 17, 2012

Remember the days when all Android manufacturers combined couldn’t beat the iPhone sales? Believe it or not, that was only 2 years ago, in 2010. Then Android manufacturers finally beat Apple’s iPhone sales a little later that year, but we’re starting to see even single Android manufacturers selling almost twice as many devices in Q2 compared to Apple.

That manufacturer is, of course, Samsung, which lately has been riding a wave of huge success in the market. This is due to its Galaxy S flagship devices, and the halo effect those devices created around their cheaper devices as well. Last year, Samsung became both the global [...]
