    When you think about an Android OEM that has a lot of potential growth in the low to mid-range market, who comes to mind? Motorola? Heck, maybe even Nokia with those new Nokia X models? The latest figures out of India reveal some healthy performance from a company that's not always on our list of mid-range OEMs to keep an eye out for, revealing Sony outpacing Apple in its share of the Indian market. Looking at Q4 2013, Samsung still dominated the Indian market with a 43% value share, but Sony manged to grab 9.1%, versus Apple's 7%. Sony's sales are apparently being driven by devices priced ...

    Apple has been famous for making some of the most iconic ads in history. I'm sure most of you remember the 1984 ad that the company ran for the launch of the Mac, which is still regarded as one of the best of all time, and we've seen the company do more with the iPod and iPhone over the years. Still, we've seen Apple worried about how Samsung is denting its image lately, and a new conversation revealed by the Apple vs. Samsung trial shows how disappointed the company is. In an email chain between Phil Schiller and Apple's famous ad agency TBWA/Media Arts Lab. following an article written ...

    Testimonies continue in the Apple vs. Samsung trial, and this time we have the leading software engineer in charge of basic features like "slide to unlock," Greg Christie on the bench. Today we find this feature in absolutely every smartphone that you can buy, but before the iPhone, all you had was a power-standby key. Christie spent a good deal of time explaining to the Jury how long it took the company to figure out a smart way to reach consumers with the iPhone, and the details are quite revealing. According to Christie's testimony, things like slide-to-unlock were features they took ...

    I know, I've been writing about tablets as productivity tools a lot this week and last – more than usual. That's due in part to a video I was scheduled to make late last week – the one about going tablet-only for a day – and it getting replaced with another tablet-centric video about Microsoft's Office for iPad. After months upon months of rumors of the popular Office suite for iPad, Microsoft finally made it official last Thursday. For free, you're not going to get a lot from Microsoft on the iPad, though. The Office Mobile app, which has been around for some time for Android ...

    Apple was definitely not the first company to provide the world with a "voice command" service, but the company sure improved the concept. Siri may not be the best service out there, but it has pioneered a trend that we can now find in Google Now and Cortana. Obviously Siri is the result of multiple acquisitions that Apple has done in the last couple of years, and even though it's not common for a company to get acquired silently these days, it seems that Apple has been doing just that. Novauris is one of the pioneers of speech recognition software, or at least was as the company got ...

    Apple's World Wide Developer Conference is probably the biggest event that the company hosts every year. During the event, those lucky developers that can get a ticket have the opportunity to work directly with Apple on ways to improve their applications. It's also the event where Steve Jobs has announced devices like the iPhone 4, and where we expect to see something great this year as well. Apple has just announced that the event starts on June 2nd, and that it'll go through June 6th. Historically, the first day is used for Tim Cook's keynote, and just like we saw iOS 7 last year, and ...

    With Apple's possible launch of the iPhone 6, we've seen leaked images that show a device with a protruding camera lens, just as we see today with the iPod Touch. We know that Apple has a lot of pressure to innovate in its camera offering, and there have been ongoing leaks about the possibility of optical image stabilization, and even Apple's decision to ditch the idea. It's hard to tell if the next generation iPhone will include any of this, but one of the older patents we saw last month has resurfaced. We saw earlier how Apple is experimenting in using magnetic interchangeable lenses, ...

    As the trial of Apple vs. Samsung continues today, we've already heard Apple's arguments as to why Samsung has benefited from the whole development process of building phones through Apple's experience with the iPhone. Obviously the next step was for Samsung to defend itself, and you'd think that Samsung would counter Apple's arguments during its opening statement, but the company insists that it's just a victim. As it turns out, Samsung's attorney Bob Quinn decided to pull out an old 2010 email written by Steve Jobs to his staff to address the battle between Apple and Google as the "Holy ...

    The Apple vs. Samsung trial has officially begun, and if you were tired of all the drama in the previous one, this one is actually interesting and unique on its own. Previously we saw how Apple won the previous patent trial based mostly on software patent infringement, and this time, the lawsuit digs deeper into how Samsung has benefited in copying Apple's smartphone development. Today the trial has begun with Apple's opening statement, where the company specifically asks for over $2 Billion in damages over Samsung's infringement in five different patents. By contrast, even though Samsung ...

    Apple's launch of the iPhone 5s came along with a lot of criticism from industry experts, mainly because of the A7 64-bit processor. There's no denying that this is a 64-bit chip, but until this day, we haven't seen any dramatic improvements in using an iPhone 5s when compared to an iPhone 5 from last year. Many of us felt that the chip was a marketing stunt, but a recent study from AnandTech wants to prove otherwise. The study, as with everything that comes from AnandTech is extremely detailed, but explains the substantial differences between Apple's old A6 chip, and what we find today in ...

    Even though we do praise the iPhone for its display quality, that doesn't necessarily mean that its the most power-efficient feature that the phone has. As a result we do see how the iPhone's battery drains quickly, mainly because of the IPS display technology that it uses. Given the fact that the iPhone's battery life is its biggest customer complaint, it seems that Apple is up to something interesting for future iPhone models. Apple is reportedly in talks with Japanese chip maker Renesas Electronics over the acquisition of a specific division within the company that builds chips to power ...

    It's always difficult to accurately predict an upcoming product based on rumors and leaks -- though some were spot on, like all the HTC One M8 stuff we've seen, which turned out to be true -- especially if that product is an upcoming Apple product. We've seen Apple, as a company, turn from the most secretive into the maker of probably the most leaked phone (the iPhone 5s), and the speculation continues with chatter about a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch iPhone. Reuters' supply chain sources claim that production for the screens of the 4.7-inch variant might start as early as next month (May), in ...
