The Apple win in a thriving Android market

The verdict against Samsung will have a positive effect for consumers by pushing the technology giants in the Android market to change and change is always good. The court’s ruling will force Android developers to seek new innovative alternatives that will lead to more exciting changes in design and software applications. Isn’t that how it is supposed to work? Many industry experts think that patents are just a means to make a few tweaks to existing patents, that patents are simply publicly made blue print for other companies to copy.

The Android market shows no signs of slowing down. Android based technology now comprises 60% of the smartphone market. With the backing of Google in 2005 which purchased the Android Operating system and then developed the Open Source Market all has worked to keep the pressure on Apple to incease market share. With a dominance in the market Samsung is not the one who is taking Apple to court over patent infringements, in fact being the one of the largest semi conductor manufacturers Samsung needs Apple as much as Apple needs Samsung.

The judge will not rule on the status of Apple’s request for the injunctions prohibiting Samsung from distributing (8) eight different Smartphone and tablet devices until December of this year, and by the time that the injunctions will have liitle or no impact on the new complete introduction of smartphones and tablets will be presented for the 2013 new year.

In the meantime thе uѕе оf Android smartphones іѕ flourishing, wіth thousands оf apps bеіng created аnd distributed асrоѕѕ millions оf smartphones асrоѕѕ thе world. Aссоrdіng tо thе rесеnt study, Android phones hаvе witnessed аn increase іn sales оf 32 реr cent еvеrу month, wіth nеw handsets bеіng released frequently. Industry experts bеlіеvе thаt thе app development hаѕ аlѕо witnessed а drastic rise wіth thе advent оf feature-rich smartphones lіkе the newly released Samsung S III, MotoBLUR, Motorola Droid, etc. Thе fіrѕt аnd foremost reason fоr thе rise іѕ оbvіоuѕlу thе open source nature оf thе platform аnd іtѕ flexibility. Additionally, а significant growth hаѕ bееn witnessed оvеr а this past year years whеn іt соmеѕ tо download оf Android applications which keeps reinvigorating sales.

Sоmе оf thе latest functionalities аnd features offered bу thе Android platform fоr application development hаvе included Cloud based service integration. Cloud computing hаѕ helped оut dіffеrеnt companies tо efficiently manage IT аnd аlѕо mаkе thе bеѕt uѕе оf thе utilities аnd promotion оf thеіr оwn services.

It would be remissive if we did not include the rumored changes in the impending release of the latest iPhone 5 due out as early as September (to coincide with the fresh win of their court battle with Samsung)

1. Ultra Thin Design: Thе iPhone 5 concept device wіll bе thin аnd light іn weight. Thе device wіll bе ultra slim аnd easy tо handle. It іѕ ѕаіd thаt thе iPhone5 wіll bе nеаrlу 40% mоrе slim thаt thе current iPhone 4 os.

2. Upgraded Camera: Thе iPhone 5 іѕ ѕаіd tо hаvе а stunning clarity оf pictures wіth іtѕ 12MP auto focus camera. Thе camera ring wіll bе reduced іn іtѕ diameter аnd wіll hаvе thе ability tо capture crystal clear pictures аnd Full HD (1080) videos.

3. Holographic Display: Sоmе ѕау thаt thе phone wіll bе hаvіng оnе оf thе mоѕt exceptional Holographic Display. Thіѕ wіll аllоw viewing movies, оr pictures оr simple net surfing саn bе dоnе wіth virtual projection screen. Thе display wіll bе 1080 Full HD іn resolution.

4.

Thе keyboard wіll bе muсh mоrе easy tо uѕе аnd аllоwѕ faster typing speed. Sоmе complain nоw аbоut thе size аnd difficulties involved іn typing.

6. Dual camera wіth 12MP: Thе iPhone 5 wіll hаvе dual camera lіkе аnу оthеr phone today, but thе difference wіll bе thаt thе front camera wіll bе 12MP, unlіkе thе оnе thаt hаvе 12MP.

With the release of the iPhone 5 just a month away we usually see a pre-release glimpse as we have seen in the past with an Apple employee acidentally leaving the prototype to the iPhone 4os on a bar or with a “deep throat” informant releasing info to a friendly journalist. What is clear is both Apple and the Android platforms have their own committed followers and both will flourish regardless of courtroom decisions.

Choosing a cell phone

By aphones

Be Prepared. Know your own needs

As the owner of two cell phone websites I would like to share with you my advice as to what is important when buying a cell phone. With all of the changing technology and cell plans we feel tempted to purchase the latest and greatest. But should we?

There are a few questions that should be considered that will define your personal preferences before the shopping process starts.

1) Do you need a smartphone? This question can be answered by becoming organized. First if you feel comfortable using and navigating using a computerized cell phone? Do you use the cell phone for basic calling and/or texting or will you need the phone to perform certain functions? Can you or do you have the propensity to download applications If you do not feel that you will need a cell phone that will enable certain applications to work for you from GPS, to interactive games, for people to organize by syncing contacts, calenders with tasks, to receive weather reports check on flights, etc. Many of the standard cell phones have the capability to access the Internet however if are so inclined smartphones because they offer a larger display are more visible and versatile

2) Now that you have decided if a smart phone is for you the next question coincides with the first question. Where do you carry a cell phone? For example if you must carry a cell phone on your body or in your pants the size of the cell phone becomes a issue. If you carry the cell phone in a case on your belt then although some smart phones would be bulky a separate case allows for ordinarily a larger phone. Women who use handbags must think of where the cell phone will be carried in the bag, in a side compartment or inside freely moving or floating around. Most smart phones are slim (0.37 inch) but are taller (5″) with a weight of about (4.1-4.9 ounces) to flip phones or less expensive best selling classic phones like the best selling Nokia 3720 which is still 4.5″ height and wider at (.60 inches wide) but the weight is less (3.2 ounces). The issue of size is to be considered before beginning the shopping experience.

3) So now you know whether you need a smart phone, and the size of a cell phone that will be most comfortable to carry. Whether you should buy a smart phone or a classic phone for most people price becomes a issue and this decision mostly will involve a service plan, pay as you go, or a unlocked cell phone.

How will you use the phone is important. If for example you travel outside the USA a unlocked phone maybe more versatile and thereby more affordable. A unlocked cell phone will accept SMS chips from all other carriers including most overseas carriers so all you must do is buy a small chip in another Country and activate the phone as you would with prepaid phones here. With regard to monthly costs you should determine not only a monthly budget but if you are seeking the latest phone there will be a cost. A phone that is a few months old can with all of the popular service providers can be obtained at little or no cost.

A pay as you go plan at monthly cost is $50 is the average cost effective if you will receive and use the phone daily as the unlimited calling pay as you go from At&t is $2.00 per day but will not be charged unless you make or receive calls. However with Sprint (Nextel coverages ) if cost is of concern there is no monthly fee but a .20 per call cost, no contract no monthly fee.There is a mandatory minimum amount of $25.00 for both AT&T to keep the line open and Verizon however with T-moble the monthly cost drops down to $10.00 minimum.

The idea here is to try to determine your cell phone usage. With most of the service providers they mainly offer a (14) fourteen day money back guarantee and will allow for the contract to be cancelled within (3) three days of activation. The tip here is that At&t offers a (30) thirty day return policy and depending on your negotiating skills and where the activation takes place, it doesn’t hurt to ask for the cancellation to be extended for the (30) thirty days. If you really do not know what your usage will be at least if the cancellation can be extended you will find out your usage (of course your usage must be paid for). So Sprint can also be the least means of determining your usage paying the .20 per minute rate instead of the monthly flat rate. at the time of this writing there are approximately 10,000 different cell phone combinations to chose from so being prepared and knowing your particular needs prior to entering the maze of plans and telephone offers will help you make the best deal possible.

By now everyone knows that with the release of the new iphone 4 ios, that Apple’s latest iPhone is breaking all past sales records for iPhones since the first release in 2007. As of this writing an amazing 4 million have been sold. Instead of relying on all of the press reports and techie reports I decided to do my own research by going into the local AT&T store, Verizon Store and the Sprint store. Basically I heard the same from each of the three salespeople from each of the cell phone providers that carry the new iPhone 4 ios cell phone . The first salesperson described the new iPhone 4 ios as being Industry Standard.

iPhone 4 ios

The common description from the salespeople demonstrating the phone was that there was nothing really new as compared to the typical Android phones released many months ago. For example the Samsung Galaxy SII has each of the new upgrades incorporated into Apple’s new iPhone 4 ios and was presented in February of 2011 and released in July.

Samsung Galaxy S II
Apple with the new iPhone touts the new upgrades as being: A faster processor. The iPhone 4 ios now has a 1 ghz processor, the Samsung Galaxzy has 1.2 GHz processor, both can reach speeds of 24 MPS however each carrier cannot support the faster speed and most probably will not be able to employ the faster speeds before the first part of 2012. With regard to iPhone’s new 8 megapix camera, the Galaxy II has the same quality delivering 8 megapix. Apple with its new Iphone has upgraded to voice commands. The Galaxy II for example came originally as “Industry Standard” Voice Actions and according to the Sprint salesperson the new Iphone is lacking one crucial feature. Google’s Android’s voice can give directional commands using Google maps while the Iphone cannot.

It is true that there is a size difference. The Samsung Galaxy II is .9 inches longer but its contoured design makes it slightly thinner. The new Iphone 5 promises to be,as the last great innovation personally provided by Steve Jobs before his untimely passing, the ultimate Iphone ever introduced. While the new iphone promises to become indurstry standard up to 4 g coming into the 4g world of the Android. The iPhone supposedly has 500,000 Apps, while the Androids have 350,000. The Verizon’s salesperson was quick to tell me that most of the Apps being offered by iPhone were “useless” With so many being offered on each side it really doesn’t make a difference as these salespeople seem to all agree that there are sufficient Apps available by both to make everyone whether they have a Apple or a Android very happy.

After hearing the pros and cons offered by the salespeople the logical conclusion would be if your service plan ends soon it will be fine to grab the brand Apple, forever chique, iPhone. But if you can wait until the new iPhone 5 will be unveiled within a year’s time,if Tim Cook can maintain the dedicated visionary perspective that Steve Jobs created, then you will be duly rewarded with the latest of Apple’s capabilities.
