Default Cellphone news

These days companies can’t just hold an event to launch a new product; they also like to brag about numbers. And at tonight’s Google Music event Google had some pretty impressive numbers to reveal. According to Big G more than 200 million Android devices have been activated to date. That number includes both phones and tablets, but given the state of Android tablet sales numbers we have to assume that 195 million or so are smartphones.

Those of you with a good memory may recall that Google announced their first 100 million activations at Google I/O back in May, a mere 6 months ago. So you can imagine a heck of a lot of people have activated Android phones on a daily basis. Google has you covered there also, reporting that 550,000 Android devices are activated every day. To put that in perspective, 3000-4000 new Android devices have been activated since you began reading this post.

Google has been granted a new patent pertaining to lockscreens which relates to pattern unlocks, and possibly using those patterns as gestures to initiate custom commands. Regardless of whether something like this deserves to be patentable, it looks like a cool new feature that we expect to see in Android soon enough.

Google granted a new lockscreen patent
The basic idea is to allow users to create custom patterns. One will be used for a normal unlock, but others could be used for a variety of functions including launching specific apps or toggle settings. The interesting part is that the custom pattern unlocks would get you into those specific apps, but wouldn't unlock the phone entirely.

This is an important distinction, because obviously, the more patterns someone adds means a higher likelihood that at least one of the gestures could be copied. But, with the limitations, all data outside of the specific app would be safe. It's a cool idea, and definitely one we'd like to see hit phones

Nielsen finds that 44% of U.S. cell phone owners have a smartphone (in the last 3 months 56% of new phone sales have been smartphones, so it won’t be long before half of all mobile phones are of the “smart” variety in the States). When looking at smartphones owners, 42.8% of them have Android handsets, while 28.3% are iPhones.

Remember that these numbers are the current phones in people's pockets, not the ones sold in Q3 2011.


That means that the "big two" mobile OSes control 71% of the market. Nielsen points out that this dominance is even larger when you look at app downloads for the last month, of which 83% come from one of those two platforms. BlackBerry comes in third, with 17.8% market share. Relative to Q2 numbers, Android has gained 2% market share, Blackberry has shed 1.2%, and iOS is holding even. Of course all of those iPhone 4S sales numbers won't show up until the Q4 results are in.

Windows Phone has a long way to go to become the “third ecosystem” that Microsoft and Nokia envision. 6.1% of smartphones have some flavor of Windows on them, which is down from Q2, when 7% of all smartphones were packing Windows. Of course these numbers includes Windows Mobile, so what we're seeing here is users leaving Windows Mobile for other platforms faster than WP7 is growing.

We know that some of you can get pretty worked up about these numbers, but please be kind to one another while sounding off in the comments section.

That's only the US market. How about the rest of the countries?

this technology is actually close to being deployed on an actual device. What does it do? Imagine a blind person being able to read braille on a touchscreen or you touching the picture of your dog and feeling the fur. That’s what the Swedes from Senseg want to bring to reality and they use electrostatic fields simulating different levels of friction. This allows you to get the sensation of touch anything from fur to sand paper.

CNET got lucky and managed to get a hold of a prototype and film it. Of course, you can’t feel the actual effect on video, but you do get the idea and all the possibilities this brings for anything from photography to even gaming. The technology is demonstrated on a tablet and that’s probably the best guess about where it could end up, but Senseg says there are no restrictions to screen size.

Senseg allows you to feel textures on your screen, could arrive on devices within a year
Additionally, unlike most other haptic feedback technologies of today, the company doesn’t physically alter the display, so all current screens could be turned into ones conveying friction.

In order for this to happen, Senseg has to close some contracts with hardware partners to implement the technology. Company representative Dave Rice says that this is in the process of being negotiated now, and within a 12 to 24 month period, we could see the technology on real products. Check out the video below to see it for yourself.

Speculation is growing that there will soon be a smartphone that can say it has "Intel Inside". Sources for Android and Me are saying that Samsung is the manufacturer of the Intel flavored phone which will be available for Sprint. The phone, which is allegedly going to run Android 4.0, will first be seen during next year's CES. And there is some substance behind the rumors.

PC World's Agam Shah reports that Intel has been able to get Ice Cream Sandwich on its Atom processor, co-named Medfield. Shah adds that Intel has been working on optimizing the processor for certain devices, and should be ready in time for when these devices are being released. As for talk that Intel's x86 processors can't compete in the smartphone arena, Intel CEO Paul Otellini says that the Medfield processor will beat all challengers.

Last month, we reported that the Medfield CPU's, part of Intel's line of processors, will be made specifically for mobile handsets while the Clover Trail chipsets will be used for tablets. Intel plans on moving from chips made using a 32 nm process in 2012 to 22nm the following year and 14nm the year after. Otellini says that Intel has been in the position of challenging tough competition before.

In the early 1980's, Intel went after the Vic-20 and the Apple II when first entering the PC market. Who leads that market today? You betcha. And in the early 1990's, Intel went after Sun Microsystems and IBM in the server market. Care to guess who now leads that market? And the same thing has happened with Supercomputers. So perhaps it should be TI and Qualcomm shaking in their boots with the impending addition of Intel to the smartphone market.

Intel says that the Medfield processor will outperform when it comes to surfing the web and "smokes the others" in browser performance according to Otellini. It also is said to outperform in the GLBenchmark test for graphics and in the SunSpider for JavaScript performance. The one problem that Medfield has is that it comes in second or third in power consumption.
