TOP NEWS OF THE WEEK (ISSUE 198): TABLETS FROM NOKIA AND JOLLA
st week, just two Finnish companies presented their plates, eclipsing all much more successful manufacturers. The company Jolla, which consists of a team of developers Nokia, working on MeeGo mobile OS and the only smartphone on it Nokia N9, announced , and then introduced its first tablet of the same name . The company launched the tablet on Indiegogo and two days managed to raise more than $ 1 million. The novelty Jolla installed 7.85-inch IPS-display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, quad-core Intel 1.8 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory expandable, and a 5-megapixel main and a 2-megapixel front chamber. From wireless modules in the tablet has Wi-Fi (802.11 a / b / g / n dual-band), Bluetooth 4.0, as well as positioning systems GPS and GLONASS. Support mobile networks in the moment, however, the company may issue in the future, and the version with a slot for SIM-cardsweakness of the tablet can be called battery – 4300 mAh all – but the use of Sailfish OS 2.0, probably has a fairly high level of energy efficiency to the plate ensures a long operating time. But in the video playback tablet just manifest itself much less competitors, including news from Nokia.other Finnish company Nokia, had once been the largest handset maker in the world, after the final break with Microsoft unveiled its first tablet running Android. Nokia N1 is equipped with a 7.9-inch IPS-display with an aspect ratio of 4: 3 and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, 64-bit quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor with a clock frequency of 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. It also has an 8-megapixel main and a 5-megapixel front camera. This phone has a battery on 5300 mAh, but Nokia did not announce the time on a single charge. In the tablet has Wi-Fi (802.11a / b / g / n / ac) MIMO and Bluetooth 4.0. The tablet will go on sale at a price of $ 249 (about 11 680 rubles on the current exchange rate), but at the moment it is not known exactly when the device hits the shelves.eanwhile, Microsoft announced that smartphones that Nokia has released the last few years under the name of Lumia, has exceeded 50 million activations . This figure is still much lower than the number of activations of the same smartphones running iOS and Android, but progress in the development of the system is still observed. Despite the fact that Microsoft did not mention the number of Windows Phone, we can say that it is not much more, as more than 90 percent of smartphones running the mobile operating system from Microsoft is the Lumia-smartphones. Unfortunately, the Redmond company did not say how many units of these 50 million used at the moment.
But Windows Phone – is not the only business of the company. Due to the success in other areas, the software giant has become the second most valuable company in the world . Perhaps this result is also influenced by the release of fitness tracker Microsoft Band, which, according to the company, has sold “significantly more” than 5000 devices. Although, even if that income was negligible, Microsoft still has not missed the opportunity to earn. In general, despite the large number of users of different services and the lowest prices on software, Microsoft is trying to make wherever it sees at least some opportunity. So, in 2015, developers will receive 70 percent of the sales of its Windows Store applications regardless of the traded volume. Previously, Microsoft used the same revenue sharing until the moment when the application is not to be sold for $ 25 000 dollars, then the developer earned 80 percent.
t who would not be able to earn a serious developers, so it’s Google, at least when it comes to applications for Google Glass. In recent years, an increasing number of developers freeze their projects and move on to the development of more promising, in their opinion, the platforms. And this is not only a failure of the company – the latest information given to understand that the program Android One, designed for low-cost devices, extends considerably slower than originally expected.wever, the Chinese Huawei, it seems, sees the prospect of a smart glasses. According to the leak, November 24, the company is going to present his vision of the direction of wearable devices. Points will be part of the line Honor. Despite the fact that the announcement should happen very soon, about the device currently know very little information. Leaks point to the 5-megapixel camera and a display with a resolution of 640×480 pixels, as the operating system will use Android 4.4 KitKat.General Director of Huawei in Russia: our main competitor – Apple
But on the flagship smartphone Huawei Ascend Mate7 known for almost everything, including the price for the Russian market . The model is interesting because it is the first smartphone in the world with a 6-inch display, whose resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels. Huawei Ascend Mate7 appear in the Russian retail in early December 2014 in silver, black and gold colors. As for the cost, the smartphone with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory costs 29 990 rubles, and the model Huawei Ascend Mate7 premium configuration with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory with support for two SIM-cards worth 31,990 rubles. On a smartphone already available to order.other Chinese manufacturer Meizu noted this week presentation of the new flagship. Meizu MX4 Pro , which was preceded by the announcement of a large number of teasers , was presented to the public. The novelty has received a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 2K. Width of the frame around the screen is only 2.8 mm, it is the thin frame among all the 2K-smartphones. Due to her size devaysa were quite modest – a width of 77 mm. As the hardware base using an eight Samsung Exynos 5430 with a frequency of 2 GHz and 3 GB of RAM. The rear camera has a resolution of 20.7 megapixels and dual LED-flash and front camera – 5 megapixel. The smartphone supports NFC, LTE and equipped with a battery capacity of 3350 mAh. Distinctive features of the smartphone has become a fingerprint reader, integrated into the center key, as well as music audio chip, which, according to the company, provides crystal-clear and highly detailed sound. Price 2499 yuan (about 19 200 rubles at the current rate) for the version with 16 GB of internal memory, but it is unknown how much will it cost smartphone in Russia, where it should appear in December. The company promises to begin deliveries Exmor RS IMX230 partners in April 2015.we talk about Samsung – the largest maker of smartphones – that he was not going so easy to give primacy. The company said it will soon significantly reduce the range of devices supplied . To take this step the Korean giant is forcing the need to fight with a reduction in profits that the results of the last reporting quarter fell by 60 percent . In general, the range smartphone GALAXY decline by 25-30 per cent, although the specific models that will go “under the knife”, the company was not informed.
We can say that the news GALAXY A3 and GALAXY A5 disappear from the company’s portfolio. Especially because all-metal smartphones, according to its own information Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru, will be presented in Russia December 5.spite the fact that the start of sales of GALAXY Note Edge went unnoticed in Russia , it is unlikely “reduction” will also affect the company’s flagship devices. Especially that Samsung plans to further promote smart phones with displays of irregular shape. Vice president of business strategy, Lee Chang-Hoon (Lee Chang-hoon) said bendable displays from Samsung will soon be available. Until the end of 2015 the company will launch a production line with a capacity of 30 000 to 40 000 flexible displays in a month, which will be the largest among all manufacturers.ssian smartphone Yota Devices YotaPhone 2, which mounted displays from Samsung, will be presented already on December 2 in Moscow. Then followed by the announcement of new products in London – 3 December. As expected, the Russian YotaPhone 2, which is made in China , will go on sale in the domestic market in December, shortly after the presentation. The exact price is currently unknown, but it should be expected at the level of $ 700 (about 33 000 rubles on the current exchange rate), depending on the course.Viewing:-219
