Report: Global E-Book Shipments To Drop 77% During Q1 2012

by: Mike AndriciMarch 5, 2012

A recent report from the prestigious DigiTimes Research claims that global shipment volumes of e-book readers will drop during the first quarter of 2012 to an estimate of 2 million units. During the fourth quarter of 2011, global e-book shipments reached the impressive figure of 9 million units. Simple math tells us that’s a 77% quarter over quarter decrease in shipments. Is the e-book reader industry dead and gone? Not by far!

During 2011, almost 23 million ebooks were shipped, 9 million of which in the last quarter alone, so it’s safe to assume that the end-of-the-year holiday season heavily contributed to the increase in sales & shipments during Q4 of 2011. But [...]

iSuppli Report: Kindle Fire Takes Off, Apple Loses Grip

by: Bogdan PetrovanFebruary 17, 2012

Are you sick of people telling you that there is no tablet market, only an iPad market? From now on, tell your iPad-toting buddies to check out this report from iSuppli, which essentially puts the iPad dominance theory to the rest. In a nutshell: Apple still sells more tablets than anyone else, but Cupertino’s iron grip on the market is finally loosening. So, who deserves the credit? Without doubt, Amazon’s Kindle Fire, the star of Q4 2011.

Amazon didn’t release any Kindle Fire sales figures, but iSuppli was able to estimate the tablet’s performance at a respectable 3.9 million units sold. How good is that, you ask? Well, consider that Samsung, the former leader of the [...]

by: Carl ParkerJanuary 24, 2012

The Android development community has been hard at work at bringing the Ice Cream Sandwich to devices that have yet to get their own official releases. The fruits of their labor are certainly sweet, because Ice Cream Sandwich finally makes its appearance on the Nook Color.

The ROM is not fit for daily use, however, as there are several bugs that still need working on. As such, it is not advised that novice users try experimenting with this ROM. Only if you’re familiar with working with ROMs do we suggest trying out this preview [...]

How to Install Android 4.0.1 ICS on the Nook Color Using CyanogenMod 9

by: Ken EastJanuary 5, 2012

Pump some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich into your Nook Color and check out how it will perform. Thanks to developers at XDA Developers, you can now install on your Nook Color a preview version of CyanogenMod 9, which is based on Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Since this is a preview build of CyanogenMod 9, it is not yet stable enough to be used for daily operation. So, as early as this point, if you are unsure about what you’re getting into, or if you have little experience with Android hacks (or none at all), it may be good advice for you to proceed with extreme caution–or at least ask for assistance from someone who has more experience.
