Samsung the new APPLE

The rumor mills are at it again and this time they are not focusing on devices that they think will topple the iPad but on the iPad itself. According to the latest tablet PC news, Apple is working on a second generation iPad which it hopes to introduce to the market during Q4 of 2010. The samsung Galaxy S has taken over consumers who are sick and tired of Apples Network Issue with the 4G. Slowly accross europe we see huge numbers showing that customers are moving away from Apple and to Samsung. This can see samsung leading the market few quickly. Our reports from Netherlands also inform us that Philips is looking for partners to share its technology in the OLED market. Consumers are none to me more smarter then the americas who dont know the difference between apple and oranges. Rumor also has it that the new gen iPad will have display sizes of 5.6 and 7 inches. Further, the reports also point towards Apple going in for OLED screen in place of LCD display that is on the current generation iPads.

OLED screens are considered far superior than LCD displays, in that OLED screens are more capable of displaying deeper black levels (since they do not require a backlight source). Also, contrast ratios are higher for OLED display while the screen refresh rates are faster, too. And that’s not all, for OLEDs are thinner and lighter in comparison to LCDs.

A smaller iPad will be surely welcomed by consumers. These will be even more affordable than the base iPad. In fact, there are reports that Apple already placed orders with component makers based in Taiwan to supply the screens in the two sizes for the new iPads. The leading developers of OLED screens in the world, like Samsung or LG, are hardpressed to meet their own demands with their mobile gadgets and an order from Apple would further strain their resources. LG already is finding it hard to meet the demand for the LED display of the current iPad and is resorting to setting up a second production line to ease demand rush.

There have been reports of many e-readers deciding to close operations due to intense competition. The iPad is also considered to be a major cause of worry for the e-reader industry, and has already brought doom to many. Just think what a smaller iPad

Mac mini HDMI imminent?

Apple’s stock of the current-generation Mac mini is apparently dwindling, leading to speculation that the long-awaited HDMI update might be almost upon us.  Apple Insider has heard from multiple sources that Mac mini availability is low, with Apple themselves giving distributors no ETA on when new stock could be expected.

   

The Mac mini last saw an update in October 2009, with faster processors and more internal storage.  However the much-tipped connectivity update never materialised; rumors have been circulating for some time now that Apple plan to replace the Mac mini’s DVI port with an HDMI connector.

That’s in part based on prototypes spotted using NVIDIA MCP89 chipsets – the successor to the GeForce 9400M used in the 2009 machines – passing through Apple’s verification tests. It remains to be seen when – or indeed if – the Mac mini will see its refresh, but Apple Insider reckon it’s only a matter of weeks away.

Apple enables Audio for Mini DisplayPort

The recently introduced MacBook will feature a Mini DisplayPort that is different from its predecessor – this time round, it will offer audio and video support through a single cable, as long as you use a compatible Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter that connects from the MacBook itself to a home theater system or TV. To solve this problem Cablesson released its Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter with Audio to the market in time for its Mac Customers. As long as the adapter is VESA-compliant, you ought to be able to revel it its new found abilities. This places the new MacBook on par with current MacBook Pro and iMac models, at least in terms of its Mini DisplayPort capability. We should be getting our hands on a new MacBook soon, but in the meantime do check out our MacBook Pro review.

MHL trys one more time??? will it work

Today announced the formation of the MHL™ (Mobile High-Definition Link) Consortium to develop a new mobile audio/video interface standard for directly connecting mobile phones and other portable consumer electronics (CE) devices to high-definition televisions (HDTVs) and displays. The MHL standard features a single-cable with a low pin-count interface able to support up to 1080p high-definition (HD) video and digital audio while simultaneously providing power to the mobile device. The MHL Consortium is also announcing the availability of an abridged draft specification available for review. The MHL Consortium was established by the Mobile High-Definition Interface Working Group announced on September 28, 2009 and is responsible for developing, licensing and promoting the new mobile connectivity technology as an industry standard open to anyone desiring to become an adopter and enabling the development of compliant mobile and display products across a broad connectivity ecosystem.  There was a set back when it was not incorporated in the HDMI 1.4, Even the specifications had changed on the Silicon Images website about the technology. The cables have been out long ago in the market but there has been no demand for this kind of technology as yet. Products implementing MHL technology will feature: * HD Video and Digital Audio Consumers will be able to display HD video content with up to 1080p picture quality and digital audio from their mobile device on an HDTV. * Low Pin-Count Interface HD video and digital audio is transmitted via a low pin-count interface simultaneously providing data, control and power, which allows mobile devices to maintain their small form factor and keep implementation costs low. * Provision of Power to the Mobile Device Digital HD content can be output from the mobile device over a single cable while power is provided to the device. For example, a mobile phone can play back a full-length movie on an HDTV without draining power, so when the playback is completed the mobile phone can continue to be used for other purposes, such as calls and emails. At the moment many brands like Cablesson are working on their 2m hdmi cable that includes Hdmi 1.4. Yes, all in one package 3d, ethernet and Audio return Channel. The project has been dubbed HEAC by the makers.

HDMI port will get on Mac Mini by Apple?

Apple has apparently been shipping around a prototype of a new Mac Mini that features something brand new for the company – an HDMI port. Perhaps recognising that mini DisplayPort and DVI aren’t quite sufficient any more, the HDMI port replaces the legacy DVI connector.

Of course, it’s relatively trivial to plug in an HDMI converter to one of those things, so the real reason behind the move could be that DVI and DisplayPort only support video transmission, whereas HDMI can also handle audio. There’s currently no way to get both video and audio to a TV from a Mac Mini using just one cable.

There’s also a new chipset onboard – the Nvidia MCP89, which is the replacement to the MCP79 currently used in most of Apple’s Mac lineup. Unfortunately, however, it doesn’t look like the processor will be upgraded, due to Intel’s licensing dispute with Nvidia.

It’s also not clear yet whether the same HDMI port functionality will be appearing on other Apple products. The cases may have to be re-engineered somewhat to create room for the ports – which are much larger than the mini DisplayPort sockets. Still, that’s not exactly an insurmountable challenge, is it?

Nexus One challenges the Smartphone market or being challenged?

When word of the Nexus One smartphone broke, the consensus was that Google was about to challenge Apple for the high end of the mobile phone market. One month after its launch, it’s clear that an awful lot will have to change before Google can truly be considered a viable competitor.

It’s not that there’s anything lacking from the Nexus One. It’s easily the best Android phone produced to date, and CNET editors recently decided it outranked the iPhone 3GS, Apple’s best iPhone to date.

But making a great phone is only part of the puzzle. Google has given itself quite a task: It’s attempting to overthrow the established multibillion-dollar mobile phone business model. In a presentation in early January, Google rolled out the Nexus One and a Web store where it is selling the phone directly to the consumer, in the hopes that one day it can create an open market for phones and carriers.

Google’s Andy Rubin cautioned that day that revolutions take time, and that Google had to enter the game itself before it could start changing the rules. It’s hard to tell whether Nexus One customers are opting for the unsubsidized version of the phone or the T-Mobile two-year contract version, as Google declined to release sales data on the Nexus One this week. So it’s not clear yet whether consumers are interested in joining Google at the barricades. But if Google really wants to make this experiment work, it’s going to have to do a much better job explaining to people why its approach is better.

For every mobile phone owner seething about two-year contracts and locked phones, there are lots of others who simply want to buy a phone that works from a name they trust while traipsing through the mall on a Saturday afternoon. Those people aren’t stupid, and they aren’t lemmings, they just don’t want to deal with complexity.

Consider the largest problem Google has had to deal with in the first month of the Nexus One: a customer support system overwhelmed by early adopters seeking information about shipping delays and glitches. In a way, it’s evidence of demand for the product and Google’s business model. But in a more telling way, it’s evidence of Google’s failure to recognize that its typical “launch early, iterate constantly” strategy doesn’t fly when people shell out money: they want what they bought to just work out of the box, and they want answers when it doesn’t. And these are the early adopters, the people who are enthusiastic about technology and what Google’s presence might mean to the mobile phone market.

Google’s success in search has much to do with the fact that the company focused on making the entire experience as simple and as user-friendly as possible. For some reason, it forgot those lessons when it introduced its first consumer product that actually costs money.

To Google’s credit, it is showing that it’s willing to make changes when they are needed. The company is planning to hire someone to design a phone support system for the Nexus One that will probably be just as annoying as every other phone support system but will provide the valuable service of giving customers the opportunity to make themselves heard. And if Google can actually find a better way to provide technical support over the phone–a low bar for such an innovative company–it will have a real selling point for its Nexus One experiment.

But that brings up the second issue: is Google willing to sell the Nexus One? I’m not talking about the physical infrastructure required to collect payments and distribute inventory: I’m talking whether or not Google is willing or able to create emotional appeals designed to get people to change the way they buy phones.

Apple’s success with the iPhone can be traced to two equally important factors: it created a great product, and made people want to buy it with clever marketing. Google and its partners have figured out the first part, but it’s not clear that Google understands how to do the second part.

Who Makes Wikipedia Available Offline, on the Go

Without a doubt, Wikipedia has become some sort of nexus for human knowledge, despite the fact that its functioning model involves articles written by specialists from various fields rather than a centralized body of authors. However, in order to check out articles on Wikipedia, one requires an Internet connection and a web browser, which makes is kind of useless in situations when these pre-requisites are not met.

However, it seems that Openmoko might have come up with a very innovative solution to this problem in the form of the WikiReader, which can be best described as a portable eReader that comes pre-loaded with around 3 million articles from Wikipedia (the English-language version) and is powered by just two AAA batteries.

According to the manufacturer, the WikiReader sports a touch-enabled monochrome display that allows users to scroll articles with a stroke of the finger and select hyperlinks with a simple tap. The device features three different buttons, namely Search, History and Random, their functions being identical to their virtual counterparts from Wikipedia.org.

WikiReader was designed by Thomas Meyerhoffer, a former Apple designer, who stated that, “The key is keeping it simple. We really want the focus to be on the experience of reading Wikipedia, not browsing the Web. That’s why we only have three buttons. There really is no interface. You’re just straight into the content.”

Erik Moeller, Deputy Director of the Wikimedia Foundation, said that “We’ve played with WikiReader, and it’s a lot of fun to see the entirety of the English Wikipedia text in a self-contained little box that doesn’t require Internet access. It could also be one viable approach to share the world’s most comprehensive encyclopedia with people who aren’t connected. We will watch the continuing development of this device with great interest, as it’s fully in the spirit of what Wikipedia is all about: empowering people.”

Of course, since Wikipedia is being constantly upgraded, the same will happen with the WikiReader. However, in the case of this tiny device, updates will be available quarterly and for free download. A yearly subscription plan for updated microSD cards is also set for $29, which will add to the initial pricing of the WikiReader, which is available for $99.

Another Lawsuit for Apple

Apple and other electronics firms seemingly find themselves embroiled in patent infringement suits all the time. One name we don’t often hear with infringement suits is Kodak. Kodak has filed a suit against Apple and RIM alleging patent infringement.

Kodak alleges that both RIM and Apple are infringing on patents it holds on digital imaging. Kodak has filed the suit with the ITC with the specific claim that camera-enabled devices from Apple and RIM infringe on a patent Kodak holds having to do with previewing images.

Kodak also filed another suit against Apple alleging that it is also infringing on patents Kodak holds for certain computer processes. Kodak claims that it has been working with RIM and Apple for years to resolve the issues unsuccessfully and is resorting to a suit for resolution. Kodak is seeking a limited exclusion on the importation of the infringing devices that include digital cameras along with unspecified damages.
