Ventas mundiales de equipos móviles en el último trimestre y en 2011

Con una semana de reportes financieros diversos ya tenemos parte de los números del último trimestre de 2011 y un cuadro de posiciones generales para el año que pasó.

Hay dos maneras gruesas de medir la performance en la tabla de posiciones del eterno campeonato económico. Una opción es medir popularidad (cuántos teléfonos vendió tal empresa), otro es mirar sus ganancias relativas (cuánto factura por equipo o en total). Obviamente lo ideal es vender muchos equipos con mucha rentabilidad (es decir, con mucha ganancia por cada unidad vendida).

Nokia da pelea con Windows Phone

LONDRES (De un enviado especial).- «Este es el teléfono de Windows», dijo Stephen Elop, levantando en su mano el nuevo Lumia 800. Enfatizando cada palabra, el CEO de Nokia presentó ante socios de negocios y periodistas los equipos que la empresa lanzará en los proximos meses. El objetivo, revertir la tendencia que lo alejó del primer puesto en el podio de los fabricantes de telefonía móvil.

Elop reconoció lo obvio, que las cosas no andaban del todo bien y que «ocho meses atrás decidimos cambiar nuestra estrategia y darle una nueva dirección a nuestros objetivos. Ya estamos demostrando un claro progreso gracias esta nueva estrategia. Estamos entregando nuestros productos al mercado más rápido que nunca». Además recordó Elop la decisión corporativa de sumar al sistema operativo Windows Phone al portfolio de sus equipos, con los Lumia 800 (foto) y 710, que ofrecen Windows Phone 7 Mango, pantallas de 3,7″, chips a 1,4 GHz, y cámaras de 8 y 5 megapixeles, respectivamente.

CrossTalk IM client for Windows Phone 7: coming soon

The need for a good, robust IM client for Windows Phone 7 will be one of the first things consumers look for when launching that Marketplace.

If all goes to plan, Blue Planet Apps will have their ‘CrossTalk’ IM client ready to go by the time WP7 launches.

‘CrossTalk’, available soon for Android and Blackberry, supports GoogleTalk, AIM, MSN, Facebook and even Blackberry Messenger (BBM). That last one is pretty huge in our book and could go a long way to woo Crackberry addicts from their devices. Talk to any Blackberry user and they’ll tell you BBM is one of the reasons why they stay with the aging platform.

Asus phone featuring Windows Phone 7 shows itself

Nothing is known about the CPU, radio, camera or what carrier–all we can tell is it’s a black slab with a nice brushed metal face. Not to shabby, but obviously those specs for Chassis 1 are pretty strict with little in the way of differentiation so far.


Who would have thought that one of Asus‘s prototype (?) phones featuring Windows Phone 7 would show up in Pakistan (via Twitter)?

Will we ever see Asus in the U.S.? Probably not anytime soon, but hey, we’re hopin’ they make a deal somewhere, sometime.

Windows Phone 7 to Excel on Speech

Joab Jackson, IDG News

Hoping to leapfrog over Google and Apple’s successes in the smartphone market, Microsoft plans to use cloud-based speech recognition and natural language processing technology to offer user interface capabilities not found on the iPhone or Android devices.

«We believe speech is not a separate application. Rather it is an integral part of the user experience,» said Zig Serafin, Microsoft unified communications general manager, before an audience at the SpeechTEK 2010 conference, being held this week in New York.

In order to boost Windows Phone 7’s capabilities for understanding a voice command and delivering the requested result, the company plans to tie in Windows Phone 7 handsets with the company’s Tellme cloud-based voice recognition and natural language processing service, said Serafin, in a subsequent interview with IDG News Service.

Microsoft purchased the company that created this service, Tellme Networks, in 2007.

Windows Phone 7 photo & video features

The other day, Microsoft held and hour long video-chat on Windows Phone 7 and photography.

Not a whole ‘lotta interesting info was gleaned, though it’s still worth a watch for your diehards.

Video recording had a brief focus at the beginning where it was noted VGA recording is the minimum but OEMs can boost that up to HD and the device can handle it with no problem.

There seems to be some confusion over this last part at MobileTech World (who did a nice summary) where it was implied that it could record HD but not play it back. In fact, the question was convoluted: it assumed you had HD content from your DSLR camera and wanted to transfer it to your Phone–this is done through the Zune software. But if the phone has an HD camera, it can record and playback content with no problem.

Other aspects covered were:

* no touch focus (use hardware button); no face detection
* no in-depth video editing e.g. red-eye correction; MS is relying on 3rd parties to fill that gap
* Automatic syncing/resizing to Facebook, SkyDrive (25GB free space) and Live services
* Full size for emailing
* GPS tagging supported
* no HDMI out in the chassis spec
* 5MP in minimum; emphasis on quality sensors/hardware

HTC phone featuring Windows Phone 7 finally appears, meets expectations. Sense coming eventually?

We’ve been hearing about the code-names for awhile and now we finally get to see one. We’re of course talking about Windows Phone 7 on an HTC device and this one is reportedly for Verizon (and presumably Sprint).

Rocking some current-high end specs, the device features:

* 3.7″ SLCD screen (Sony’s ‘Super TFT LCD’, nothing big)
* 3 touch-sensitive lower buttons (similar to EVO)
* 8MP camera (No dual flash, not even a single one!)
* 1GHz Snapdragon
* No HTC customizations in sight

  • 1GHz Snapdragon
  • No HTC customizations in sight

Too early to tell if this will be a release device, what it’ll be called and where it fits in with HTC’s planned offerings (maybe this is an entry level device, not their flagship?)

Our take: it’s exactly what we’d expect from HTC and in that regard, it’s a bit underwhelming although we think it’ll get the job done admirably. Still, we’re sort of hoping for ‘an HTC EVO moment’ where we really go ‘wow‘ instead of ‘meh‘.

Are our standards and expectations too high? Yup, and we’re okay with that as Microsoft needs to wow us.  Your thoughts?  Is that Dell Lightning looking better yet? Continuar leyendo «HTC phone featuring Windows Phone 7 finally appears, meets expectations. Sense coming eventually?»

Microsoft shows off TellMe voice control in Windows Phone 7

We know Microsoft and TellMe (who Microsoft bought) worked close together on the Samsung Intrepid (awful phone, neat service), but nothing else ever came out from it.

We also know Windows Phone 7 will have some type of voice control (see Dieter hilariously try to activate it back in February) and low and behold, Microsoft has recently demoed it for it us.

Yep, Microsoft still makes more than Apple (and Dog Daze)

By Richi Jennings

Despite dire predictions, Microsoft’s Q4 results show that its revenues and profit are bigger than Apple’s. The two companies’ stock prices don’t seem to reflect that, but whoever said the market was that simple? The Windows, Office, and server businesses each had a barnstorming final quarter, which may ease the pressure on Steve Ballmer. In IT Blogwatch, bloggers show us the money.

Twitter currently not integrated with Windows Phone 7; 3rd parties to the rescue?

Back a few months ago, when Windows Phone 7 was first announced, there was talk about how there won’t be a separate, native Twitter application when launched. Instead, Microsoft talked-up their Live services which could access and pull down your Twitter feed for you.

Sure, it wasn’t a direct route but if you use Live, you had a one-punch solution to social integration on WP7.

Now we’re getting word that’s just not the case as Twitter as changed their Terms of Service back in June (which explains why it was missing as of late) and have blocked companies like Microsoft from accessing via that method. To be clear, Microsoft is working with Twitter to come to a solution, but it seems Twitter has Redmond by the Rocky Mountain Oysters on this one and since the end of June, it hasn’t be restored.

Technical reviews for Windows Phone 7 are out; overall quite positive

Looks like some of the big sites managed to get a hold of some tester Windows Phone 7 devices (luuuucky!) and the consensus overall seems to be quite solid. The hardware is a Samsung Taylor SGH-i707 with 480 x 320 (HVGA), which is a bit odd although reportedly it looks really good. The Taylor also has a 5MP camera, speakers plus microphone on the top and bottom for both and a non-functional front-facing camera. There’s even a dedicated camera button that works if the device is locked.

Will Windows Phone 7 Series Be A Smartphone for the Enterprise?


Written by Alex Williams

mix10logo.pngWe’re seeing a few glimpses from Mix10 of what Windows Phone 7 Series will look like for the enterprise.

Perhaps most compelling is the continued emphasis on creating an experience more so than an enterprise «phone.» It appears that Microsoft has learned a lesson that is more apparent every day. People want smartphones as much for personal use as for business use.

But Microsoft is saying little about what it does plan for the enterprise with its Windows Phone 7 Series. They say more is to come in the next few weeks but clearly the emphasis is on the consumer market, not the enterprise.

Network World did a little sniffing around Mix10 and did get a few tidbits of what we should expect: Continuar leyendo «Will Windows Phone 7 Series Be A Smartphone for the Enterprise?»
