  2. Google launching Nexus version of Samsung Galaxy S 4 on June 26th for $649

    Google’s ongoing Google I/O 2013 event has had some interesting talking points, but one of the headlining ones is that the Mountain View giant will be launching a Nexus version of the flagship Samsung Android smartphone – the Galaxy S 4 – next month, on the 26th of June, for $649. Nexus devices have always been held in high regard by users and critics compared to pretty much any other branded Android phone or tablet, and consolidating the Nexus brand with the powerful hardware seen in the Samsung Galaxy S 4 could prove to be an excellent idea.

  6. Samsung attacks Apple’s iPhone again in a new Galaxy S 4 ad

      It has been a while since Samsung has been borrowing the core ideas from Apple’s “I’m a Mac” campaign in the way they aggressively compare their own product with a competitor. The Korean company has Apple itself in its crosshairs of course, and has frequently tried painting all iPhone users as hipsters and mindless sheep who are obsessive about getting an iPhone simply because it is an iPhone. The ads may have met with a mixed reception, but they grabbed eyeballs and attention for Samsung’s last flagship phone, the Galaxy S 3. Now, a TV spot for the new flagship, the S 4, takes subtle shots at Apple while demonstrating its own features.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlXp41WwpOs       Continue reading →

  9. Strategy Analytics: Android tablets covered MASSIVE ground on iPad in Q3

    There hasn't been any dearth of Android tablets that managed to do well in terms of sales numbers. Amazon Kindle Fire, Google Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy XYZ - you name it, and you will realize that there have been isolated instances of success among the hordes of Android tablets that get launched every year.

  10. Rovio launches Angry Birds spinoff: Bad Piggies

    Rovio Mobile was a small app developer three years back. And then, the Angry Birds phenomenon happened, and overturned its fortunes from near bankruptcy to being the biggest of the big fish (or birds, in this case?). Rovio continued to piggyback on its blockbuster game's sequels - Angry Birds Rio, Seasons, and Space. While the latter was a creative reimagining of the popular mobile game, at the end of the day it was still more of the same, much like Rio and Seasons before it. Amazing Alex was Rovio's next experiment at trying out something new altogether - but despite positive word of mouth, it crashed spectacularly in the Top Downloads charts beyond the first few weeks of its much hyped launch. Now, Rovio has done the next best thing - it has launched a new game called Angry Birds, and that's a game that borrows elements from both Angry Birds and Amazing Alex.   Continue reading →
