Breaking News:Nexus Prime Launch Delayed

Just a day after Samsung launched a video for CTIA, today Google and Samsung announced in a joint statement that they have delayed the launch of a new product. The statement which was shared with VentureBeat is as below

Samsung and Google have decided to postpone the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event during the CTIA in San Diego, previously scheduled for Oct. 11. Under the current circumstances, both parties have agreed that this is not the appropriate time for the announcement of a new product. We would ask for the understanding of our clients and media for any inconvenience caused. We will announce a new date and venue in due course.

Samsung Plans Something Big Next Week – Launches Teaser Video

Samsung unveiled a new video stating that “something BIG is coming” and the release is going to be during CTIA. There are no points for guessing what it is – if still unsure – read this post and this one also.

However, the images show something curve is coming – now we know Apple didn’t unveil the iPhone5 in its event – so will Samsung (and Google) also hold back Nexus Prime launch and launch something entirely new? But, they have to take care of the market sentiment where the fans are expecting something much better than iPhone 4S from these giants.

Nexus Prime – Leaked Pics

On the day that most of the tech guys are calling “Apple Day”, (Samsung and maybe Google) are trying to spoil party for Tim Cook and Apple. If you ask how – Well GSMArena has supposedly got hold of pics of which they claim as the Nexus Prime – The next handset to be launched by Samsung and Google with IceCream Sandwich – the next version of Android which claims to be the best so far.

The pic is as below

The pic confirms that the next release of Android phones won’t (may be) require soft buttons as all the buttons would be capacitive  i.e. On the screen itself.

By looking at the info on the screen the specs are becoming more clearer – 720p resolution – so HD display is there, Screen would be 4.6″ (obviously diagonal) and a much better pixel density.

The release date of partial leaked photo and of Apple iPhone event is same – is this co-incidence or clever marketing? Whatever it is – it is good news for Android lovers.

And it definitely confirms the rumors of launch of Nexus Prime and IceCream Sandwich on the Samsung Event. I am waiting eagerly for the event – are you?

Breaking Now: Apple Rejects Samsung Offer

Continuing from my last post on Samsung offering for an Out of Court Settlement with Apple, the latest news is that Apple Laweyrs have rejected the offer and are moving ahead with the case.

Samsung Attorney – Neil Young said in the court  “No agreement has been reached. The parties are a considerable distance apart.”

On the same lines, Apple’s  attorney Steven Burley said, “It is one we don’t accept and there is no surprise. The main reason we are here is to prevent the launch and maintain the status quo.” With apple formally rejecting the offer, the stand is pretty clear and was properly highlighted by Apple’s Attorney above.

This is not a good news for Samsung Fans in Australia. The case can force Samsung to loose out on an important market and the same may be seen in other markets also.

Android – Who is making Smart money out of it?

When we talk about the next big Mobile OS – Everyone knows it is Android (Yes, even Apple followers may know that at back of their head), but when it comes to who is making money out of it – people will have the following things in their mind

  • Are they the developers? Nopes – Firstly, they are not making that much money and surely no Smart money
  • Are they the Handset Manufacturers? No – as they are making money for the handset which they are making
  • Is it Google? Guys – Google is giving Android  for free – indirectly they might be making, but thats another topic to discuss.

If these are not true – then who is making the money? Continue Reading
