In our post, few days back, we have talked about upcoming HTC One X. Here is a full review of released HTC phone.
Over the past 12 months or so, HTC has seen sales dry up, revenue forecasts slashedand the company has been forced to admit that its rapid product development cycle was doing nothing to help the company in a market dominated by two smartphones — the Samsung Galaxy S II and Apple’s iPhone 4 (and 4S).
It has been a great month for apps. Both iOS and Android had big markers in March, as Apple released the new iPad and Google rebranded the Android Market as Google Play. Developers have been hard at work creating apps for each platform and some great games, social apps and utilities have been recently released.
We also have a new feature this month: recommended apps. We choose one app on our list from both Android and iOS and give it our official stamp of approval. See below to see what apps take the top spot this month. The updates section for March is extensive as developers updated their apps to be compatible both with the new iPad and iOS 5.1.
We conducted our tests while repeatedly playing a short video (“Big Buck Bunny” at 320 by 180 resolution, with a running time of 9 minutes, 56 seconds) on the iPad’s built-in video player. We left Wi-Fi on and connected, and set the brightness to maximum; auto-brightness remained disabled.
The new iPad’s score was better than what we’ve seen from many of the Android tablets we’ve tested, but it certainly wasn’t comparable to the iPad 2′s results. It was also a far cry from the all-day performance we had hoped to see. Apple estimates the battery life at up to 10 hours; the company says its estimates are based on mixed audio, video, and Web-browsing use, over Wi-Fi or cellular networks.
The HTC One S, running a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor and sporting what HTC calls a ceramic metal microarc oxidation construction, will have a sticker price of 499 euro ($662). Lastly the HTC One V, using a unibody metallic design harkening back to days of the HTC Hero and Legend, has a weaker single-core CPU under the hood. The least expensive of the bunch, the One V will set European shoppers back 299 euro ($397).
All three phones will boast Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, HTC’s newest iteration of its Sense user interface and be sold in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. We here in the States will have to sit tight until versions of these handsets arrive in the clutches of our wireless carriers. We won’t have to wait to long, I expect, since a dual-core flavor of the HTC One X could be announced by Sprint next week. More details for AT&T’s already announced One X model, as well as the One S for T-Mobile, will likely be revealed in May at the CTIA trade show.
“The once-dominant Windows on x86 platform, consisting of PCs running the Windows operating system on any x86-compatible CPU, [will slip] from a leading 35.9 percent share in 2011 down to 25.1 percent in 2016,” IDC said. “The number of Android-based devices running on ARM CPUs, on the other hand, will grow modestly from 29.4 percent share in 2011 to a market-leading 31.1 percent share in 2016. Meanwhile, iOS-based devices will grow from 14.6 percent share in 2011 to 17.3 percent in 2016.”
Android generated less than $550m in revenues for Google between 2008 and the end of 2011, if figures provided by the search giant as part of a settlement offer with Oracle ahead of an expected patent and copyright infringement trial are an accurate guide.
The figures also suggest that Apple devices such as the iPhone, which use products such as its Maps as well as Google Search in its Safari browser, generated more than four times as much revenue for Google as its own handsets in the same period.
It’s not often that Microsoft launches a dramatically revised version of Windows. But when the software giant does – as many expect with the launch of Windows 8 – it’s big news. And just about every industry stakeholder — from the company’s consumers to enterprise users to competitors — become interested in what the software will ship with and how it’ll fare in an environment so tied to past ideas. Until all that’s determined, however, many folks have questions.
