The m-Indicator app is a Mumbai travel guide and is literally a boon when it comes to checking train timings, the different routes of trains, buses or bus stops for different bus numbers. A week ago, IRCTC launched its android app called IRCTC Connect which would let you search & book tickets (No-doubt, m-Indicator being such a HIT). Initially, One would need to visit the desktop site to view or cancel previously booked tickets. The option is now available directly through the application. It’s free to download and is available on major platform such as iOs, Windows & Android store.

As the dust settles after the launch event of the iPhone 6 and the Apple  watch, rather than the devices themselves, Apple Pay and the Apple SIM have in fact emerged as the key highlights in Apple CEO Tim Cook’s recent Keynote speech. While the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are bigger, faster and have better displays the improvements are incremental at best. And while the Apple Watch is just a start in a whole new ecosystem of smart wearable technology, the reception was not that great, evidence of this is the fall in the share price of Apple on the eve of the launch event.

The thinking behind increasing the phone size was quite evident, with users migrating from browsing on their PC’s to browsing on their smartphones. Apple’s 4 inch displays were most definitely fighting a losing battle there. But, the bigger business impact may come from Apple pay, Apple’s new mobile payment solution. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus weren’t disruptive innovations, however, Apple pay might end up revolutionizing the world of plastic currency. [click to continue…]

Microsoft who acquired Nokia in last year has decided to wipe out the brand name of ‘Nokia’ from their phones by replacing it with ‘Microsoft Lumia’. Microsoft made the announcement via their Facebook page of France. Nokia France’s Twitter account posted the link of the same. Microsoft then confirmed to The Verge of its rebranding in other countries too. Lumia 730 and 830 are believed to be the last two devices and perhaps the last ones to carry the Nokia name. Thus, putting an end to the very much trusted brand which used to be every ones favorite some years back.

 

When Apple launched back in 2007, Apple iOS kept itself exclusive to iPhones whereas Samsung, HTC, LG, etc adapted to the Android platform leaving back their own platforms. To make them more appealing to the consumer they competed on various specs and smart features and they continue to do so, thus managing to stay in the race. Sadly, Nokia failed to do so. Nokia, too could have stayed in the race if they would have adapted to Android and not stayed with Symbian. This could have prevented its downfall. Nokia has long been criticised for choosing Windows as their OS over Android, which many believe led to the slump in its global market share. Slowly in countries like India, Nokia phones were just used as spare phones, in case the primary phone isn’t working or its battery runs out.

It’s worth pointing out that Nokia still exists as a brand and a separate company based in Finland that focuses on location based services including HERE maps, and network equipment. Under the rules of the acquisition contract, Nokia had agreed to carry the Nokia brand till the end of 2015.

The smartphone industry giant, Samsung has developed Wi-Fi technology which will have 5 times more speed than the usual. The 60 Ghz Wi-fi technology will enable a 1 GB movie to be transferred in less than three seconds within devices. I will take more time to search that movie in my files, Samsung! While, uncompressed HD videos can be streamed easily from mobile devices and TV in real time without any delay.

Samsung has overcome this problem by making alterations to the design of the circuit and by leveraging millimeter-waves which previously were susceptible to path loss and had weak penetration properties resulting in poor signal. To support it, they are using the high performing modems and the best antennas. By doing so, Samsung’s new technology removes [click to continue…]
