These provocative comments are only a reflection of a market , the PC , which looks like it follows the trend of the third quarter , eventually contracted by 7.6 %, slightly less bad than we thought but also falling . The former long-term partners like HP and Microsoft have seen their relationship truncated and of course, the small company has to find their own alternatives to grow.
Never had problems , as Microsoft sold software and hardware manufacturers . Then in an attempt to compete with Google and Apple decided to remove Surface. While Acer CEO Ballmer warned and they think twice before releasing their own tablet , the Surface HP said posed no threat to its own range of tablets with Windows 8 . The weather has put things in place , as though Surface sales have been low enough to itself what the manufacturers begin to give back to Microsoft for such a maneuver .
A year ago, Microsoft is well justified , ” it is difficult to ensure uniform quality and deliver the experience that the end user needs ” . Surface created precisely why , as an example of what should be , but large amounts devoted to marketing the tablet showed otherwise. The HP Slate tablet had a poor reception , but from here we doubt if it really was for competition or the quality of their own products. Read the rest of this entry »
With multi-core processors, modern operating systems and touch screens so large that can be used to sleep on. In this madness of specifications, it is easy to forget that many people do not need much in your mobile. Free to make calls, send messages and media can do some work from time to time, is more than enough, but most companies seem to have forgotten. But Nokia does not.
Thus was born the new low-end phone (very low?) Of the company, the Nokia 108. As we see in the images, the whole device is designed to offer a low price above all. So, we have no touchscreen, but a 1.8 inches accompanied by a physical keyboard. In fact, the more “luxury” is the VGA camera that allows us to record and share video via Bluetooth 3.0 with application Slam supports Android and Windows Phone devices.
Moreover, it is also a phone call sound can play MP3, with support for microSD cards up to 32GB and FM radio, so we did not miss the music beyond where we go. In addition, there will be a dual SIM version that will allow the use of two different cards. A striking point is the battery, which promises 31 days followed in standby (25 days for dual SIM) and up to 45 hours of music playback. Different color housings are in line with other models of Nokia.
Of course, all this leads to a very interesting price: $ 29, that could be even 0 depending on the contract with the operator. Typically these devices are aimed at developing countries, but Nokia has not specified where it launched, although they have been given a provisional release date: the last quarter of the year.
Now is Nokia that want to innovate in the use of capacitive screens and they can be used with gloves on and make them especially sensitive to the point of not having to directly touch our skin to see the expected reaction.
While it is true that with the birth of capacitive screens many were the gadgets that hit the market as gloves fingers uncovered, special gloves for this type of display or stylus that were able to interact with these, in the case of gloves was necessary to leave our typical wool gloves to use a possibly harbored less but at least worked with our mobile phone without having to take it away but this was not a solution.
Nokia, from their terminals Lumia Lumia 920 and 820, able to incorporate a touchscreen capable of recording pulses and gestures as nails both gloved (although these must be light or slightly heavy) but not exclusively dedicated to the terminals of high range by incorporating also the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520.
These screens built into the Lumia (although they are also available in the P2 Ascent of Huawei and Samsung Galaxy S4) has been thanks to the company Synaptics, a company situated in Santa Clara California specializes in creating hypersensitive screens.
While conventional capacitive screens take advantage of the small electrical charge found in human skin, Sypantics incorporates a number of other processes to take advantage of touch in order to execute the required response on the screen with other touch longer rely on such electric charge. Synaptics incorporates more sophisticated processors than conventional able to handle different types of more complex algorithms that identify the surface that interacts with the screen, is a finger, fingernail, glove or stylus as it detects (like other screens) is touch, the difference is that you know what kind of touch and how to respond to it.

Sprint is the first major U.S. provider to announce an exact release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note II . The phone will be available from October 25, in two colors: white and metallic gray. Sprint is asking 299.99 dollars for it (of course, in the contract).
As we all know, the Note II HD screen has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED, LTE connectivity, S Pen, quad-core processor (Exynos) of 1.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 1.9 MP front camera and a rear camera 8 megapixel.
Unlike the LG Optimus G – another high-end, that will soon Sprint (November 11 to be exact), the Samsung Galaxy Note II runs Android 1.4 Jelly Bean from day one.
As reported last month, is preparing MetroPCS officially launching the Samsung Galaxy S III in the United States. Currently, the company has confirmed that the phone will be available in select stores this weekend, and in all stores (and online) starting next October 22.
MetroPCS Galaxy S III will sell for $ 499 plus tax – no contract required. LTE smartphone features include: HD Super AMOLED screen 4.8-inch, dual-core processor 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 MP front camera.
The Samsung Galaxy S III launch run for MetroPCS Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be available in the coming months (not just for the MetroPCS version, but for all variants S III already being sold in the U.S. – Verizon, AT & T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular).
In late July, Samsung proudly announced that it had sold more than 10 million Galaxy S III Smartphones worldwide. Now, two months later, the company announced that the number of units sold has reached 20 million – in 100 days since the launch of the phone .
This confirms the fact that the S III is the Samsung Smartphone most successful to date.
Sales remain strong in the coming months, especially by the recent introduction of four color versions. Of course, the new Apple iPhone 5 (which is expected to be announced next week, on September 12) will generate a negative impact on the business of Samsung, but not much. 30 million Galaxy S III sold in late 2012 is an achievable goal.
In case you’re not aware, the Galaxy S III is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was almost ready.
The HTC One X + is a new terminal that has been making a lot of noise in recent weeks and although it has not been officially announced, and there is enough information about what you see when you arrive as the successor to the current model.
Last month, appeared in a performance test (benchmark), but now a Twitter user leaked what he claims as will be the official specifications. The information has not yet been confirmed, and I sincerely doubt it happens, but it serves to get an idea of what is coming.
Apparently have a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, but the chip will reach a speed of 1.6 GHz frequency along the accompanying four cores. Like the current model, comes with 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB ROM and an 1800mAh battery. In filtration through Twitter adds that come with Android 4.1.1, Jelly Bean and Sense 4.5.
Unfortunately, no further details are known to paw timely HTC has an event scheduled for September 19 and possibly witness the official announcement along with other terminals with Windows Phone 8.
The project in question is called Open Web and roughly device intended to provide a new mobile phone platform based on HTML5 which will use new mobile devices.
What does this mean? Well as you know those that ye be something stuck in computer science, web development is somewhat limited in the field of smartphones due to the potential of the language used then to all the fuss now because of the HTML5 language as this promises to break these barriers / constraints and things get really useful and impressive.
If you look back about 5 years you will see that for any type of service (messaging, chat, music …) used to install software on your computer. A software service, if it was an outrage and that’s when all these services began to implement dynamic web pages easily accessible by a single software, a browser.
In essence they want to do is similar, seek to develop a new architecture that reside entirely Phone on the web where everyone will have access to application interfaces. Smartphone Utilities such as our call, send a message or play could be developed as applications in HTML5 and settle again in behold of 20 applications installations only one browser.
Mozilla phone and operating system being developed HTML5 for a hardware platform based on a chipset from Qualcomm. The three companies will collaborate to deliver a prototype feature-rich platform that will enable smartphone capabilities at a price of basic functional phone.

It has been known that users of the Orange company would be sending your phone number without knowing all the sites they visit while using their mobile terminal to surf the net. A case is not isolated, and that apparently already found and believed solved in August 2010. The alarm bells have returned to British O2 users who have indicated that this problem keeps happening.
Although Orange has already recognized the mistake and is looking to reform What does this error? How do you know us? I explicates.El the problem fundamentally is that if we surf the Internet with your terminal using the Orange network operator, with requests that are made to the website where we will see you included our phone number and other information.
In what is called header data, which typically provides information to the target page and control information between the client and server, as the response status of the server, cookies, content type you are sending / receiving and other data that are useful for developers and administrators. Also statistical data such as what browser we are using, where we are or the operating system we use.
How do I know if I’m going through?
Apparently the problem is found in many mobile phone models, although it seems that the only one who does not have this problem is still the iPhone. It was not immediately known but much more data will explain how to know if this is happening in your terminal.
For that we need to see the headers that your browser sends to the server of the web page where we sail. This page provides all the information your browser sends headers. We have to establish specifically in the field called x-up-calling-line-id that is where in theory you should now see the phone number of your terminal.
