A week back, i was browsing through a site where i found an very interesting article. After reading the content i felt that it would be great if i share it with others as well. I have given my best in the process of explaining it through this post.
This article was based on the Nokia corp's latest mobile concept which is called as Nokia Kinetic. Jeremy Innes-Hopkins is the creative designer for this Nokia Kinetic concept.
Nokia Kinetic concept is that whenever a mobile phone receives a call or a SMS, an electromagnetic force will be created at the base of the mobile phone so that the entire weight is made to fall on to that spot making the device to stand up. If the user is not interested in picking up the call, he can just give a gentle tap to the cell phone which will make the gadget to fall down. The device will them resume its standby mode.
But as of now there's no confirmations regarding the Nokia Kinetic concept design to become true. But this concept looked pretty cool for me. So i wished to share it with all of u. Doesn't this concept look cool?
Linux based computing gadget will be introduced in the next year where the first users will be the university students. There will be internet connection given to these devices in all 22,000 colleges which will be available to the students for just 1,500 rupees ($35).
This latest tablet can also be run using solar power. It has web browsing and video conferencing capabilities along with media player and other features. The cost incurred to develop this device was $35 and government may subsidise 50% of the price for the students. This initiative is mainly taken in order to improve the educational system in India where the literacy rate is just 63% when compared to China which has 94% and other developing countries.
On Thursday, Nokia corp. announced its Q2 results. The net profit in the the second quarter was 40% less when compared to its last years Q2 profit. Q2 profit was Euro 227 million i.e, is around $290 million. But Nokia corp has said that the market share in the smartphone sector remained at 41% which has not chamfed from the previous year.
Even though Apple inc. is giving a strong competition against Nokia, Nokia corp still holds the record of 24 million smartphones which has been sold globally. Still Nokia remains the global leader in the mobile market as it has sold 432 million devices which doesnt tally even if we combine the smartphones sold by its 3 closest rivals.
The reason behind the profit fall is due to less sales in North America which dropped by 19% and also due to the European financial crisis which resulted in lesser currency conversion. Currently, Nokia Corp owns 1,29,000 employees world-wide.
Google's Android Operating System is becoming popular day by day among the smartphones which makes sense for ASUS to adopt this Operating System for its Eee Pad tablet.

Actually, ASUS had a good tie up with Microsoft for a long time, but in Feb, ASUS announced its Android based Nuvifone A50, which was developed with the partnership of Garmin.

Yahoo also faced problems similar to Google, most of the payments were done in Euros. Due to European financial crisis, currency rates resulted in fewer dollar conversion. Otherwise Yahoo would have done fairly well. It earned $213 million in Q2 which ended in June which represented a 51% increase from net income of $141 million at the same time last year. After deducting the commissions which was paid to its ad-partners, its revenue was summed t o $1.13 billion which came $30 million lower than the estimates made by analyst.
Now Yahoo has predicted its Q3 revenue which would either remain unchanged from last year or it might increase by 4%.

After hearing a number of complaints from the customers, finally, Apple Inc. has arranged a press conference which will be held on Friday. Apple Inc. will be discussing about their latest iPhone based on the complaints received regarding its antenna.
After a careful testing on the Apple's latest model of iPhone, Consumer Reports has concluded that when the iPhone is held in a certain way, the signal bar displayed is incorrect.

But, Consumer Products did not find any signal problem in other phones. The signal problem occured only in latest iPhone model.
Consumer Products also have said that, covering the black spot with a case or a duct tape will eliminate the Signal problem. Now the speculations is that, Apple should provide "Bumper" case to the iPhone buyers which costs $29.

On Friday, Apple Inc. was totally stunned to find out that these many years they were using a wrong formula to indicated the signal strength in the form of bars on iPhones.
After the release of their latest gadget iPhone 4 on 24th June across US and other 4 countries, Apple heard lots of people worldwide complaining that this latest model shows a sudden plunge in signal strength when users grip the iPhone at the small black strip which present at the edge of the phone. Many users have called this point as "the death grip" for the mobile phone. In the first three days after the release of iPhone 4, Apple sold 1.7 million iPhone 4s.
Apple has concluded that, in actual the high bars which are in the first place are never real and hence users see some wrong display of 4 or 5 bars of the signal strength when it shouldn't like that. In actual, it was because of wrong formula which was implemented on the iPhone to indicate the signal strength. Moreover, this formula was implemented when original iPhone was launched in 2007 and right from there, this formula exists.
Now, Apple has said that this problem will be fixed within few weeks & a freeware will be released for the iPhone 3G, 3Gs and 4 models. Also they have planned to make the bars little taller so that the visibility will be more clear to the users and even this will be included in this freeware.
