Next iPads will have fingerprint recognition

Should also be packed slid with IBM sourced apps

Cupertino’s finest – Apple, thrives on the hype it manages to create amongst its loyal followers – the Apple fanbois. It also relies on intense media speculation about its forthcoming products such as the alleged iPhone 6 which should make its appearance on September 9th [2014]. Given that the products are actually made by contractors in China, you’d kind of expect major leaks of photos showing what its new products look like but to date there’s been nothing which looks 100 per cent genuine. So instead, Apple fanbois have been contenting themselves with rumours about the next generation of iPad branded tablets. Which might be launched separately in October [2014]. And feature fingerprint recognition plus software sourced from IBM. Continue reading

Guest Post: Android is conquering the tech world

by Kate Merzlova, a frequent GoMo guest blogger now with Nasty Creatures

By 2020, there should be around 75 billion devices connected to the Internet. And in my opinion, it is highly probable that Android will be installed on most of them. Moreover, these devices will be not only smartphones and tablets but also various non-mobile devices such as gadgets; cars; robot assistants; and automated home control systems. Created back in 2003, Android has outgrown itself smartphones and tablets, and become the most popular operating system on the planet over ten years. Thanks to Google’s efforts, more than one billion devices are working using it now. By 2011, Google had launched Android@Home and the operating system [OS] gradually – by trial and error started to penetrate into new areas and connect independent gadgets. And this trend is unlikely to change. Continue reading

Falling iPad sales in China underline Apple’s global woes

But deal with China Mobile on iPhone could soon turn things around

Further evidence that Apple is losing ground in the global tablet market has come from China, where latest IDC figures reveal that its share there almost halved in the past year. Apple shipped 1.48 million iPads in China in the second quarter [2013], accounting for 28 per cent of tablets, though this stood in stark contrast to the 49 per cent market share it recorded a year ago. Meanwhile sales of Android-based devices shipped by Samsung rose fourfold to 571,000, almost doubling its share of the Chinese tablet market to 11 per cent.

madvertise finds developers charge iPad owners more for apps

Rating: Something to do with them being generally young & wealthy

Major insights into European mobile app market are being offered in the the latest madreport from madvertise – one of the largest mobile audience targeting platforms in Europe. Key findings include the fact that there are more than three times the amount of iPhone apps available to download compared to the iPad.
