If you think Android is just tied to mobile phones, then you are wrong…dead wrong. Being open source and free has its own added benefits. It lets more manufacturers tweak the system and make the OS work flawlessly on almost any electronic devices worthy of running it. Now Samsung is also seen to be readying Android-based HDTVs a.k.a. Google TV. Sony has showed interest in this matter and is already working with Google.
Apple is currently using Samsung manufactured Cortex-A8 processor for the iPhone 3GS. Even the original (iPhone 2G) and iPhone 3G were using a Samsung 32-bit RISC ARM processor. But a Korean newspaper reported that this may not be the case for the upcoming iPhone, better known as the iPhone HD. It seems Cupertino may be using its own variation of the new A4 processor for the new device. And this is certainly a bad news for Samsung.
The Korean giant Samsung finally becomes the world’s largest technology company. Previous crown holder was Hewlett Packard which made $114.6 billion in revenues this year. In comparison to that, Samsung made $117.8 billion for the same period. Analysts believe this happened mostly because of Samsung’s continued success in selling LCD TVs, digital cameras and memory chips. The company’s massive presence in this year’s CES was also one more evidence.
Apple’s iPod practically revolutionized the concept of MP3 players, and ever since hundreds of consumer electronics manufacturers have jumped into the bandwagon. Realistically, few survived and Samsung is definitely one of them. Now the Korean giant has come up with something called the IceTouch, which is basically a MP3 player but with a true aesthetic touch. The device features a beautiful transparent 2” AMOLED screen very similar to that of Sony Xperia Pureness.
Isn’t this such a cute clown? That’s not a sticker on the camera but a real LCD screen. Now you must be wondering why the screen is in the front of the camera. No worries…as even the back portion features a screen as well. To sum up it’s actually a double viewing treat from Samsung’s DualView TL220 and TL225, that not only lets you photograph others but even yourself enjoying a wonderful moment.
In an attempt to make the world a better place to live, Samsung in collaboration with Sprint has come up with the world’s first cellphone made from natural corn. The product named Reclaim is actually made from 80% recycled materials. This mobile phone with QWERTY keyboard is completely free from PVC and “almost” free of BFR.
