Samsung preps anti-iPhone 5 lawsuit before it's even out

hyartep
Facepalm

they for sure lear from design language used by apple, so you can say the "copy" apple. but not more, than they did copy nokia.

as far as i remember, nokia did never sue samsung because of the design.

New GPL licence touted as saviour of Linux, Android

FUD by FSF?

This is such FUD. There are many problems with GPL3 that prevented Linus&co switching to this new license.

I can't see them switching because of this (imho) small glitch.

Nokia unveils budget Symbian smartie

arm11

according to some earlier benchmarks I cannot find right now, ARM11 is at cca 60% of Cortex based chip with similar rating (megahertz).

It means 1GHz CPU used by Nokia should be similar to 600MHz CPU used in Nokia N800 or iPhone 3GS (it's working clockspeed in those devices, not maximum possible).

The problem is Nokia 500 does not include GPU, multimedia features of ARM11 are worse than those of Cortex and ARM11 uses older manufacturing methods (it means chip size a energy requirements of the ARM11 chip are not (much?) better than those of Cortex chip, despite ARM11 is more simple).

MobileMe drove Steve Jobs to foul-mouthed fury

hyartep
Jobs Horns

apple products

first and most important - steve jobs requires products that do what they are supposed to do.

he can always sacrifice features (look at iphone 1) but available features/functionality/design have to be "perfect".

i'm not surprised, that he was angry, that his company released unfinished product.

(otoh there are apple products, that are not awesome, but they have to be finished according to apple design requirements - e.g. appleTV).

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Android smartphone

hyartep
Alert

xperia play is to play as in games :-)

you know, it's major nonsense to review xperia play from non-gamer point of view.

xperia play is for gamers, if you are not gamer, it's not for you, buy arc or neo. simple as that.

Nokia gets touchy-feely with two new Symbians

hyartep

update for xperia mini pro

there will be no android upgrade for mini pro :-(

(but there might be minor update)

recent upgrade to android 2.3 announcement clearly states it will be for xperia 10 (big one) only.

btw: you should know, that upgrade to 2.3 will break some of the existing 2.1 functionality.

Ubuntu - yes, Ubuntu - poised for mobile melee

hyartep
Alert

not very correct article

this article has many thing wrong, such as:

- "microsoft drops intel exclusivity" - when windows nt was new, it was available for mips and powerpc architectures as well (if i remember correctly) but they dropped them because there was no traction

- "intel does not want develop atom processor" - intel made extremely huge work to create atom, and move x86 from desktop/notebook to netbook and is clearly targeting tablets and phones next. the only difference is, that they are trying to do this with x86 architecture, not arm. by the way, do you remember, that intel did develope arm designed processors, however, they decided to drop them, to focus on x86

however, ubuntu moving to mobile is true. we'll see how much they are succesfull.

Facebook beats Google's block

google knows about the workaround

google of course knows about the workaround.

google even mentioned this in their announcement of blocking facebook.

blocking facebook is about blocking someone, that does not want to share.

allowing people to export the data from google is about not doing evil and letting people use THEIR data.

Symbian Foundation faces closure

hyartep
Pint

one nokia to rule them all

symbian is opensource and nothing can change that. as with every opensource project, there must be someone (person, commitee or bunch of people), that defines direction and developers that make it happen. developers might be payed by commercial stakeholders or by volunteers.

as of now, direction was decided bye board. board was chosen by corporate foundation members. these corporate foundation members also payed developers (there is very little of volunteer developers).

IMHO: if there will be not enough corporate sponsors, developers will be payed by nokia and nokia will as well set direction (without need for consultations with other foundation members).

i expect rest of the company to continue other platforms

i expect RIM bought blackberry part of the company (and some more), to improve RIM software department (+ dataviz as part of bbery solution) but rest of the dataviz will continue to support other platform.

otherwise, they would buy whole dataviz a it would be advertised as such

meego tablets

with all these tablets coming, i'm wondering, if nokia will be releasing some meego tablets. after all, they had internet tablet's well before anyone and meego seems to be finally usable for mass market.

i would welcome some 5-7 inch tablet. my n800 (4 inch) was great at the time, but now I would opt for phone with smaller touch screen (3-3.5 inch) and (5-7 inch) tablet for couch browsing.

Microsoft unveils – wait for it – another mobile OS

hyartep

microsoft strategy

it was always microsofts strentgh, that it was able to "outresource" competition. first version was usually disaster, second was usable and third was success (marketing, not technical).

it was the same with mobile os. they were able to "destroy" Palm.

However, competitors and market changed too quickly for them to accomodate. Windows7 for phones is something like version2 in their new mobile strategy.

The difference, right now, is that Apple and Google have enough resources to fight.

(I'm not sure about Nokia/Symbian, they have to start to deliver. Change from "old" S60 to fully competitive Symbian^4 is taking too long. The same with Maemo (2,3,4,5), Meego (1, ?).)
