  • 1 in 2 digital tickets will be mobile tickets by 2019 A new study points to 32 billion digital ticketing transactions by 2019, with 1 in 2 of those being mobile tickets, doubling over the next four years. Juniper Research 1 has issued its latest mobile and online ticketing forecasts in its latest (paid) report dubbed Mobile & Online Ticketing: Transport, Events & NF 2015-2019 2 . The research find that with digital ticketing services developing fast across the Internet and events sector, mobile handsets will account for more than 1 in 2 digital tickets purchased by 2019 .

    Also forecast is that global ticket purchases via mobile and desktop devices including smartphones, tablets and PCs will reach 32 billion by 2019, up from an estimated 16.2 billion this year. This represents a two-fold growth over the next 4 years. Although Australia is just getting into NFC-style cards such as Opal in NSW and Myki in Victoria, which are similar to the Oyster cards used in Hong Kong and London, Juniper Research says the metros transport sector is dominating mobile ticketing.

    Its research found that in almost every market, metro and bus ticketing was being driven by mobile phone usage. The low price, high frequency and high volume nature of metro/bus ticketing was found to be particularly suited for mobile payments. In addition, Juniper says that Metro/bus ticketing is gaining traction through barcodes delivered via smartphone apps, and through SMS-based solutions, with the latter witnessing impressive user adoption in markets such as Sweden and Italy.

    But what about the emergence of wearable ticketing? Juniper says its research observed that ticketing apps will become key for wearable devices, such as smartwatches. Research author Nitin Bhas said: Smartwatches with NFC capability offer a convenient replacement for contactless debit-cards and smartphones.

    Integrating new devices and wearables should be a key strategic directive for all players across the ticketing value chain. However, the research notes that a number of challenges, including scanning capabilities and battery life, needs to be addressed for wider adoption. So, what are some other key findings?

    Given the previous talk of smartwatches, it s unsurprising to see Juniper mentioning Apple Pay, suggesting it will create a greater awareness of contactless payments via smartphones, resulting in higher adoption and usage of mobile ticketing. While the report is sure to mention the fact that Apple Pay can be activated via an Apple Watch, which is emerging as the smartwatch to beat all other smartwatches even though no consumers have yet received their pre-ordered Apple Watches, its media release did not make the direct Apple Pay/smartwatch connection. There s also the stat that 1 in 3 airline boarding passes will be issued via mobile devices by 2019, and while Apple Watch again isn t mentioned in the media release, we know Apple Watch has apps created by various airlines for use as boarding passes, already in use in the US.

    Juniper has a Ticketing Takes Off whitepaper 3 available to download from its website together with further details of the full research and Interactive Forecast Excel (IFxL).

    The six-page whitepaper can be downloaded free of charge post free registration, and while it definitely has some useful information above and beyond the media release, it also serves as an obvious advertisement for Juniper s full Mobile & Online Ticketing report.

  • 10 Android for Work Features Sure to Appeal to Enterprises By Don Reisinger 1 | Posted 2015-04-20 Print 2 There's a new enterprise mobile platform for companies that are prepared to invest in Android. Google has introduced its long-awaited mobile device management (MDM) platform Android for Work. Android for Work gives IT departments and companies a more secure way for employees to access corporate data and applications with their Android mobile devices.

    It's the Android equivalent of platforms such as Apple's own MDM platform and others from Good Technology and BlackBerry. One advantage Android for Work has that all those others don't, however, is that it can be used on more than a billion Android devices that are in users' hands around the world. In other words, it's an MDM system that's destined to be adopted on a massive scale worldwide.

    But what in Android for Work will make it an effective management tool for the millions of workers who want to not only bring their Android mobile devices to work but use them productively for business? This slide show looks at the features that could make Android for Work an effective MDM platform for enterprises.

    10 Android for Work Features Sure to Appeal to Enterprises By Don Reisinger There's Finally a Mobile Device Management Platform for Android Android for Work is only available on Google's Android platform. There has been some hope that Google would offer this mobile device management platform for other mobile operating systems, similar to the platform-agnostic Good, but that really doesn't make sense and it won't happen.

    Android for Work is for the Android mobile environment and will stay there. It Supports Development of Android Business Apps One of the core features of any enterprise mobile platform is the ability to create native apps for internal use. While the feature to allow developers to create business applications technically was already available on the Android OS platform, it's now a central feature in Android for Work.

    Companies can design an app internally and then deploy it across all the mobile devices capable of running Android for Work. Google Says Its Security Is Stronger Google says that Android for Work delivers stronger security for companies. The firm points to a remote data wipe feature, the ability for IT to approve apps for download and more as proof that Android is more secure for corporate users.

    Security is potentially a major issue for Google's Android and one the company will want to address. IT Managers Get a Handle on Android Devices in the Workplace Android for Work includes management features that allow corporate IT departments to establish data and application access policies for all those personal Android devices coming into the workplace. IT managers can set security and data access compliance controls across the Android product lineup using a single console.

    Android for Work puts the control back in the hands of IT, even where BYOD has been going on for years. Android for Works Forms Firewall Between Personal, Work IDs There's a clear firewall between business and personal on Android for Work. Google says that employees can bring their own Android devices into the office and download Android for Work.

    From there, the enterprise will have control over the corporate side where all the mission-critical apps are, but will not in any way interfere with personal data and apps. Full Support for Enterprise Apps One of the nice things about Android for Work is that it's fully compatible with widely used enterprise applications from other software producers. In fact, if a company is already heavily invested in solutions from Citrix, for example, it can use those apps within the Android for Work environment and maintain control.

    It's a key feature that will appeal to the IT side. Chrome Is at the Center of the Browsing Experience It should come as no surprise, given how important Chrome is to Google, that the company will allow for browser control via Chrome. So, while companies can opt to deploy Opera or another browser for Android devices, the Android for Work console is optimized for Chrome.

    Thus, chances are that companies that want to use Android for Work will use Chrome so they have the most control. Monitoring Is at the Center of the Platform When users download Android for Work for the first time, Google automatically tells them that it's possible for IT administrators to fully monitor all of their activities within the corporate environment. That's important to keep in mind.

    While Android for Work could be running on a personal device, at least on the corporate side of the firewall, IT has full monitoring capabilities. You Don't Need to Have Google Apps to Use Android for Work It's worth noting that Google doesn't necessarily require that Android for Work users actually use Google Apps. The platform supports Google Apps, of course, but if companies want to use Microsoft Office applications or Zoho, that's fine.

    The only caveat is that the level of control over those apps may not be the same. Google Has Lined Up Android for Work Partners Google advises users that third-party application support is not universal and Android for Work is only compatible with "partner solutions." However, the number of partners Google has lined up to support Android for Work is fairly diverse, as it includes BlackBerry, Citrix, IBM, SAP and SOTI, which offers its own mobile device management platform.

    Now Mobile world congress (MWC) is over and hasn t left us disappointed and there s a plenty of new smart phones, tablets and there is a time to look at a best smart phones in year 2015.

    1.APPLE I-PHONE 6 PLUS/ I- PHONE 6 I-Phone6 is included here because it is essentially the same iPhone6 plus equipment except for the size, battery capacity, and optical image stabilization in the camera. Size also matters to some people as recent data show that the vast majority of people choose the iPhone6 than iPhone6 plus because of its size. Apple iPhone6 and 6 plus contract price subsidies range from $649 to $949 and a two-year subsidized price ranging from $ 199 to $ 499.

    These two smartphones remains most expensive smartphones available today. For most of us who daily use their smartphones as an essential tool for completion of the work, the cost should be reasonable.

    2. SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 4 EDGE Samsung significantly improved its smartphone design with a full metal frame and an improved camera.

    TheNote4 edge have excellent camera, and often beat, the results of iPhone6. Look, if you want the most powerful Android phone, then Note 4 and edge is a good option.

    The front facing cameras are rarely good, HTC one has best fits to at customer satisfactions. In HTC ONE M9 the Ultra Pixel camera has been improved, and moved to front facing camera with a positive expectations. For those who are good in photography and want more detail in their pictures this phone is best, provide a rear camera upgraded to 20-megapixel.

    Internal specifications have been updated to include Qualcomm Snapdragon810 eight-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, micro SD card slot, and a large 2800 mAh battery. A highly competent smartphone beautifully crafted with unique features. It is just an improvement on HTC one M8.

    4. SAMSUNG GALAXY S6/S6 EDGE The camera improves on the Note 4 so should perform amazingly well. The battery life concerns me a bit, but these new Galaxy phones do support Quick Charge technology.

    The Galaxy S6 models arrive in April so stay tuned for further coverage. The S6 looks glorious with Gorilla Glass 4 and metal colour gives it a glitzy, shimmering look. Samsung reveals Galaxy S6 and S6 edge in MWC edge.

    The design has been significantly improved, but the trade-off designed to kill a couple of reasons, people choose the Samsung Galaxy S line more than other Android smart phones. Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge by eight-core Samsung Exynos processor, internal storage 32GB / 64GB / 128GB of 16-megapixel camera, integrated wireless charging, 3GB RAM, Super AMOLED 5.1 inch 2560 x1440 pixel display and many more. Note that removable battery is gone, as well as expandable memory with micro SD card. , 5.

    BLACKBERRY PASSPORT Blackberry passport has a 4.5-inch 1440 x1440 pixel resolution screen, 3GB of memory, full hardware QWERTY keyboard and 13-megapixel camera, micro SD card slot, 32GB of internal storage, and a large 3,450 mAh battery. If allied communications is important, then it will be hard to beat the awesome Blackberry hub, as we all know blackberry is a business phone. BlackBerry passport is in AT & T s available in black, white and red tri colour unlocked mode, and with more curved edges.

    6. LG G FLEX 2 It has 5.5 inches of 1080p display, Android 5 Lollipop, 130,000 pixel camera, 3000 mAh battery, and 810 eight-core Snapdragon processor. A unique feature is a curved plastic OLED display, allowing you to flex (bend) the phone is just a little bit.

    Self healing back also helps to heal scratches when they occur. LG rustling an elegant, top smart phone rings, a ridiculously high-resolution screen and ultra-high-speed camera; however, battery life display of casualties. It s a nice phone launched in January 2015.

    7. NOKIA LUMIA 930 Nokia Lumia930 equipped with the latest Windows Phone experience, so the most important thing is always with you, to share anything or your experience. This is Lumia930 is a knock, you pick it up from the first moment.

    This is a Windows Phone device, so it can not be the application of competition, but Nokia s flagship design is rich and best all around. This is equipped with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 3G connection, built-in wireless charging and 5 , full HD display, readable in the sun. With 20MP Pure View camera four directional microphones and surround sound, you can capture high-quality photos and audio that is more true to life than ever before immersive video.

    Nokia Lumia 930 ranging in stylish to vibrant colours.

    8. GOOGLE NEXUS 6 Google released Nexus One device each year although this year there are a ton of features with great shape. Unlike previous nexus where one or two things missing, the Nexus 6 is not really in the lack of any specification.

    It has a large 5.92-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution displays, Snapdragon 805 quad core 2.7 GHz processor, 20-megapixel camera, 3GB RAM, 32/64 GB internal storage, large 3900 mAh battery, and water resistance. Dual front facing speakers provides immersive sounds. It turns out the display resolution is too high so that battery life is barely acceptable, the camera can take good photos but the conditions have to be just right, and it is difficult to find one available to purchase.

    The original display resolution is too high, so the battery life is less. Nexus 6 is priced at $ 649 and $699 for 32GB and 64GB respectively, which is still lower than iPhone6 plus, but more than the Nexus5 last year. So the idea that nexus is just an affordable smartphone is inaccurate.

    9. XIAOMI xiaomi officially announced and grab the attention to its Mi note and Mi Pro, which is the most powerful mobile in the world. Both offer 244 pounds and 350 pounds respectively amazing value, because of their amazing specifications.

    These two highly designed Chinese gadgets are equipped with a 5.7in curved screens Mi Note- Full HD and Mi Note Pro quad HD. The use of mass 2GHz 810 Qualcomm Snapdragon 64 bit 8-core chip, the Adreno430 Graphics and RAM is 4GB. And it is still thinner than iPhone6 plus.

    10. ONE PLUS TWO. ONE PLUS ONE is now made available without an invite but at the same time it has been announced or confirmed that ONE PLUS 2 will also use the same functions.

    The OnePlus one is an amazing phone. It costs from pounds 229 but pounds 600 smartphone specifications to match, hence OnePlus marketing is the main killer in year 2015. We hope to see a 3300mAh battery, a 810 Qualcomm s Snapdragon processor, 4GB memory, and a 5.5 inches2k screen in ONE PLUS TWO.

    It will also run OnePlus itself OxygenOS, rather than cyanide.

  • 10 Gadgets to Keep Mobile Pros Productive on Road or in Office I've been reviewing mobile products for years, and while I haven't written about every cell phone out there, I've covered a lot of them. But for most users, there's a lot more to supporting the mobile gadgets that streamline your day than just the phones. For every iPhone or Android device or BlackBerry, there's a wealth of smaller devices that make using them easier, faster or safer, but most of the time those never see our pages.

    So for a change, I took a look at some of the useful gadgets that support a mobile work day, and I've found a few that are worth having. Of course, for every mobile phone or tablet, there are probably 10 accessories that you might want to use. I can't look at all of those, but I did find some that actually work, do something useful that you might not be able to do with the mobile device itself and that are useful enough to be worth spending your money on.

    Even better, these gadgets can make your workday more pleasant, and they might even help you make it all the way through to the end.

  • 10 Mobile Chat Apps That Beat SMS Want to avoid the cost of sending messages via SMS? Consider these 10 app alternatives.

    6 Great Skype Alternatives (click image for slideshow) Mobile device users sent an average of 36.6 billion messages per day throughout 2012. Not all of them were text messages, however.

    In fact, fewer than half were routed through traditional, carrier-based SMS services. Analyst house Informa says that 19 billion messages were sent each day from mobile chat apps, while 17.6 billion were sent via Short Message Service. In its report, published by GigaOm, Informa predicts that the scale will be even more imbalanced next year 1 , when mobile chat app users will send 50 billion messages per day compared to 21 billion text messages per day.

    This is a seismic shift for the industry, as SMS has been a solid revenue source for years. U.S. carriers often charge customers who don't subscribe to a messaging bundle between 5 cents and 25 cents per text message.

    The more messages you send, the more you pay at the end of the month. This is why they also offer messaging buckets, which typically cost $5, $10, or $20 extra per month for some preset number of messages (up to and including "unlimited"). Some carriers, such as Sprint and T-Mobile USA, include unlimited messaging in their basic voice, messaging and data plans.

    Any way you look at it, mobile phone users pay more to send messages via SMS. That's why so-called over-the-top apps have become so popular.

    2 . ] Over-the-top (OTT) apps are third-party messaging services that don't use the carrier's SMS delivery system and instead push messages through the mobile device's data connection. These OTT apps let users avoid SMS fees.

    Informa points out that the chat app users are sending an average of 32.6 messages per day, while SMS users are sending an average of 5 texts per day. It's easy to understand why. What are these OTT mobile messaging apps, and where can you get them?

    Many smartphones have them built in, and others are available from BlackBerry World, the Google Play Store, the iPhone App Store and the Windows Phone Store, among other places. Some of the more popular include BlackBerry Messenger, ChatOn, iMessage, Facebook Messenger, Google Talk/Voice, Kik, Skype, Viber and WhatsApp. They're not all created equal.

    Some work only with other devices running the same platform, while others only work with devices using the same app. Here's a quick rundown on what each does. BlackBerry Messenger is BlackBerry's age-old messaging service.

    It goes back 10 years or more and uses BlackBerry's messaging servers to deliver messages directly to other BlackBerry users, completely avoiding carrier SMS services. It works only between BlackBerrys. ChatOn is Samsung's mobile chat app, but unlike BlackBerry Messenger, it is not limited to one platform.

    In fact, Samsung has released versions of ChatOn that work with BlackBerrys, Android smartphones, the iPhone and even Windows Phones. In order to chat between an iPhone and a Galaxy S 4, however, both devices need to use ChatOn. Apple's iMessage is for Apple devices only.

    It lets iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users send messages back and forth through the devices' data connection. On the iPhone, messages that can't be pushed through iMessage (for whatever reason) are delivered via SMS as a back-up. Facebook is pushing hard to be the mobile messaging platform of choice for many users.

    It fact, it recently updated its Facebook Messenger app to include a unique new feature called Chat Heads. Like ChatOn, Facebook Messenger is available to a wide variety of smartphones (Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Phone) and works with any other device (including tablets and PCs) that has Messenger installed. Google actually has three OTT mobile chatting apps.

    Google Talk is the instant messaging apps that's been available to all Android smartphones almost since day one. It works between Android smartphones, tablets and desktop-based browsers. Google Talk shares its base functionality with Google+ Messenger , which is a separate chatting app that hooks into Android users' Google+ accounts.

    Android devices typically have both Google Talk and Google+ Messenger installed. Google+ Messenger also functions from within the dedicated iPhone/iPad version of the Google+ application. Google Voice is entirely separate and is available to both Android and iOS devices.

    It is meant more to serve as a calling service, though, and its messaging function is rudimentary at best. Kik and Viber are similar to ChatOn in that they are cross-platform apps that require people to use the same app in order to communicate back and forth. Most mobile professionals should be familiar with Skype , which not only powers free Skype-to-Skype messages, but also VoIP-based phone and video calls.

    Skype is a cross-platform service that is available to Android, BlackBerry, iOS, and Windows Phone devices, as well as tablets and desktops. The last of the major OTT mobile chat apps is WhatsApp , which has seen phenomenal growth in the last year. As with ChatOn, Kik, Skype and Viber, it requires that two people have the app installed in order to converse with one another.

    It is popular because it works with a wide range of smartphones. WhatsApp recently claimed that it has more daily users than Twitter. The problem with all these services is that none of them can completely supplant traditional text messaging.

    SMS may be old and clunky, but it works with every mobile device on every carrier. Rather than replace SMS, mobile chat apps should be used to supplement SMS and get around it when possible.

  • 10 Points on Microsoft's EPIC Windows 10 Platform: Features, USPs & Updates What number comes after 8? If you use a Windows Phone the correct answer is 10 . That s because this year Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 Mobile 1 for its Windows Phones. If you re a Windows Phone user you ll know the current OS is called Windows Phone 8.1. Seems Microsoft is skipping over the 9 moniker entirely to help with the branding initiative of Windows 10, which is its next desktop OS. But the journey from Windows 8 to Windows 10 has been anything but smooth, and there have been a lot of questions raised by longstanding Windows Phone fans about the future of Microsoft s mobile aspirations because up to now, well, things haven t been great the global mobile space is still very much the Apple and Google Show it was back in 2012. But Microsoft has one last, grand plan up its sleeve, something it sort of started with Windows 8: a unified platform for all devices. This is a huge, potentially game-changing approach to mobile, desktop, PC and hybrid but it has to be done right and, even more importantly, consumers have to know what the hell is going on. Microsoft is well known for its inability to communicate precisely why a consumer should buy and use its products. Next to Google, Samsung and Apple, Microsoft s marketing department has A LOT to learn in the coming years. Just look at those recent Cortana adverts, for example, which were so bad it would have left David Brent cringing. So, by the end of this year all your Windows devices PCs, phones, and tablets will be running and operating system all called the same thing: Windows 10 (or, more specifically, if you are on what is currently known as a Windows Phone, Windows 10 Mobile). But besides just branding the OS with the same name on its desktops and mobile devices, Microsoft is actually completely overhauling both OSes, so they re one one that runs on any type of device. For all intents and purposes it looked as if Microsoft s Windows Phone campaign had died its final death in 2014. Nokia left the space following its acquisition by Microsoft, who, in turn, began to release budget handset after budget handset, much to the disdain of many hardcore Windows Phone fans. The team was very focused on our Windows 10 release for PCs and tablets, and we needed to do some prep work for Mobile to move to a new branch. I expect the builds to be out more frequently again as we go forward from here. Our major focus on Windows 10 Mobile right now is on improvements to core quality, Microsoft said last week. Microsoft s hardware business is on very shaky ground, though. The Xbox One and Surface tablets are selling well, but only account for a very small fraction of Microsoft s business -- a 10th of its total revenue according to some sources. Basically, Microsoft needs to sell A LOT more hardware, otherwise it runs the risk of becoming unprofitable, and after its recent Nokia write-down, investors DO NOT want that to happen. With the release of Windows 10 now underway and the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL 2 available for pre-order in the UK, Microsoft s Windows 10 campaign is now underway in earnest. The company has more than just phones on the agenda at present, though, and is currently receiving plenty of praise for its Surface Pro 4 3 a truly post-PC device that will go head-to-head with Apple s iPad Pro during the remainder of 2015. Speaking to ZDNet s Mary Jo Foley 4 , Satya Nadella outlined A LOT of his thoughts on the future of mobile inside Microsoft. As you d expect there has been a lot of soul searching during the past few years and this has resulted in the company taking a different approach to mobile in the future. If anything, said Nadella, one big mistake we made in our past was to think of the PC as the hub for everything for all time to come. And today, of course, the high volume device is the six-inch phone. I acknowledge that. But to think that that's what the future is for all time to come would be to make the same mistake we made in the past without even having the share position of the past. So that would be madness." "In preparation for the software update side of things," notes WinBeta, "Microsoft has updated its Lumia support pages to get ready for Lumia with Windows 10 . While the pages do not contain any dates or new information, they have been updated to reflect the upcoming operating system." And Windows 10 Mobile MIGHT Run on Android... The Xiaomi Mi 4 was announced last year and the phone runs on Android, reports UberGizmo 5 . However as you might have heard, Xiaomi is said to be testing Windows 10 for its smartphones and thanks to a ROM developed by Microsoft, it would essentially allow the device to swap out its Android operating system for Windows 10. And this ain t rumour either: the move has been confirmed by a Microsoft Software Engineer on Chinese social networking site, Weibo. Here s what the dude posted: Thanksgiving Day is around the corner, so is the public release of Windows 10 for Mi 4. The implications of this are rather, umm, LARGE. If the ROM is easily installed on Android devices then we could see a bunch of curious Android users loading Windows 10 Mobile onto their devices. Could this be Microsoft s back door into the mobile space? Too early to tell at the moment, but it is a very interesting turn of events all the same! We ve already looked at the 10 things you need to know about Windows 10 for PCs 6 , now lets take a look at the 10 things you need to know about Windows 10 Mobile. 1) Windows 10 Mobile: Price and Release date Microsoft has now officially launched the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL and these phones will debut Windows 10 mobile. Microsoft has remained quiet on any further details. Fortunately, sources in Poland 7 got hold of some database information from the Polish branch of phone network Orange, which details that updates for existing Windows Phone 8.1 devices will begin from December 14. There's even a list of which phones will be part of the rollout: Lumia 630 Lumia 635 Lumia 640 Lumia 745 Lumia 830 This will be followed by a second phase rollout for remaining devices in February 2016: Lumia 520 Lumia 532 Lumia 625 Lumia 720 Lumia 820 Lumia 920 Lumia 925 Lumia 930 Lumia 1020 Lumia 1320 2) Windows 10 Mobile: Device Support Right now the only supported phones for preview releases of Windows 10 Mobile are Lumia smartphones and the HTC One. However, by the time Windows 10 Mobile ship, expect to see plenty of other Windows phones and tablets supported. Windows 10 Mobile will support ARM system-on-chips from Qualcomm's Snapdragon line and IA-32 system-on-chips from Intel and AMD. The Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are the first PURE Windows 10 Mobile devices. The handsets are now available for pre-order in the UK and are set to start shipping during the first week of December. You can see how they compare in our Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 XL 8 article, where we compared the hardware, specs and connectivity of both handsets. Microsoft hasn t confirmed any additional hardware partners for Windows 10 Mobile, however, although we could see some surface in the coming weeks and months. Windows Phone didn t succeed as Microsoft had hoped, so there is understandably a lot of unease about Windows 10 Mobile and its potential for upsetting current market leaders, Android and iOS. The approach with Windows 10 Mobile is markedly different, though. Microsoft is going for the ONE PLATFORM approach and early word on Windows 10 for tablets and PCs is fairly positive; Microsoft appears to have ironed out A LOT of Windows 8 s kinks and foibles. 3) Windows 10 Mobile: Universal Apps A really cool feature of Windows 10 Mobile is that it uses a universal app system that allows devices written for Windows 10 on a PC to be easily ported to Windows 10 Mobile devices. This essentially means that any app made for the PC can run on a Windows 10 Mobile device with not much code tweaking involved. 4) Windows 10 Mobile: iOS and Android CAN and WILL Be Ported In addition to the above universal app system, Windows 10 Mobile will also make it easier for developers to port Android and iOS apps to Windows 10 Mobile. This means you could begin to see many more quality apps for Windows 10 Mobile. This is something Microsoft needs because lots of developers only make their apps for Android and iOS. 5) Windows 10 Mobile: "Continuum" Another killer feature of Windows 10 Mobile is Continuum. This is a feature that allows a Windows 10 Mobile device to be used as an ad hoc PC. On supported devices you ll be able to plug your Windows 10 Mobile phone or tablet into an external monitor and plug in a keyboard and mouse and the device s user interface will scale up to resemble a PC-like desktop interface. 6) Windows 10 Mobile: The EDGE Browser Windows 10 Mobile will include a modern new web browser called Edge. The big thing about Edge is its new rendering engine, EdgeHTML, which will make browsing much faster. Edge will also support reading lists, on-screen annotations, and extensions. 7) Windows 10 Mobile: Notifications Sync Between Devices Another really nice feature about Windows 10 Mobile is its ability to sync notifications between devices. This means you can dismiss a notification say a Skype notification on your desktop and it will also be dismissed on your Windows 10 Mobile device. 8) Windows 10 Mobile: Improved Keyboard Windows Phone 8.1 has a great keyboard called Word Flow. That keyboard is sticking around in Windows 10 Mobile, but it's gaining some improved features. Now you can resize the keyboard to better fit your fingers and even move it around the screen anywhere you want for the placement that makes the most sense for your hands. 9) Windows 10 Mobile: New Photo App It seems everyone is getting a new photos app this year (ahem, iOS, Google). Windows 10 Mobile is no different. The new photos app will allow you to sync your photo library across devices and will automatically enhance your photos and create albums for you. 10) Windows 10 Mobile: The Lumia Camera app is becoming the default camera app on all Windows 10 Mobile phones If you ve got a Lumia phone already, you ll know about its excellent Lumia Camera app. Well that camera app is becoming the default camera app on all Windows 10 Mobile devices. That means all Windows 10 Mobile devices will have a camera app that takes auto-HDR shots, offers 4K video recording, and takes Dynamic Flash snaps (the same picture with and without flash).

  • 10 surprises from Which? in 2015 25 December 2015 Our 10 most surprising findings from Which? expert testing and investigations in 2015 It's been a busy year of testing and investigating at Which? HQ, and we're taking a look back at our most startling discoveries. From A-list fans to the eavesdropping smart TVs, find out what's surprised our experts in 2015. We carry out hundreds of product tests, hard-hitting investigations and consumer surveys every year so we can tell you which products and services you can trust, and which to avoid. But even with more than 50 years experience of working for consumers, we do still occasionally manage to make shocking discoveries that leave our experts a little taken aback. Here are some of the most startling facts we've uncovered over the past year. 1. Shops are using sneaky tactics to target advertising at you You might be surprised to learn that some digital video screens showing adverts can scan your face and determine whether you're male or female and which age bracket you fall in to, just by examining facial characteristics. Advertisers look at the demographic data for particular times and places, and use it to tailer the adverts they show. 2. Your smart TV is listening to you, and hackers might be, too We were shocked to discover that some smart TVs from Samsung and Panasonic were transmitting voice searches unencrypted over the internet. Worryingly, we were able to access the actual audio from the raw data we collected from Samsung models. This meant that if you hadn't secured your wi-fi and someone was eavesdropping on your network, they could hear what you said to your TV. Samsung told us it had deployed a software update which should have fixed the issue by the end of March 2015. Panasonic also told us it would take action to fix the issue. We're about to start re-testing the TVs in question - so we'll be able to report back in the next couple of months whether the updates have worked. In the meantime, if you're looking for a new TV, check out our Best Buy TVs 1 . A surprising fan? Prince tweeted our ticket resales story to thousands of followers 3. Prince is a fan of Which? At Which? HQ, we've been fans of Prince since he encouraged us to wear raspberry berets and party like it's 1999, but little did we know he's also a fan of us. In a tweet to his army of followers, Prince linked to our ticket resales news story 2 . Our story shockingly found that some tickets were appearing on resale sites before being officially released. 4. ...but Jeremy Clarkson isn't Mr Clarkson announced in his Sunday Times column 'I hate Which? magazine. I hate every single thing it does and everything it stands for.' He took particular affront at our kettle reviews 3 , saying 'It's an effing kettle, for God's sake. Just buy the blue one.' We, on the other hand, would be more than happy to help Jeremy out the next time he needs any buying advice, kettle or otherwise. Provided he's willing to pay his membership fee, that is. 5. Your boiler servicing engineer might not even bother take the case off your boiler In our undercover boiler servicing investigation 4 , we secretly recorded 10 engineers servicing a boiler and were shocked to find that eight failed to meet the minimum legal requirements. Two of the engineers didn't even take the case of the boiler. Find out how to get the best boiler service 5 . 6. You're better off shopping online than traipsing to the high street Our shopping experts have been busy crunching the results from our annual high street and online shopping surveys this year to find out once and for all whether it's best to hit the shops or complete your Christmas shopping online from the comfort of your own home. Online shopping was the clear winner, with a customer satisfaction score of 74% compared with 65% for high street shops. Get the lowdown on our best and worst online shops 6 . 7. We found out which suitcases will hold up against the roughest, toughest baggage handlers Earlier this year we introduced a new 'chuck test' into our suitcase testing. It uses a purpose-built rig with a scaffold and rope to mimic a throwing action, tossing suitcases onto a hard floor from a height of 1.5 metres. We then check the damage, and rate the bag from one to five according to how well it fared. One means it's no longer useable and five means it has no permanent damage. Find out which suitcases survived our tough tests with our luggage reviews 7 . 8. Upgrading your smartphone or tablet with the latest operating systems can make it worse Ever had that nagging feeling that your phone or tablet just isn't quite the same after installing the latest operating system? Well, you might just be right. We tested the battery life, processing speed and storage space of 26 smartphones and tablets after updating their operating systems, and found that 24 were worse off in at least one of those categories. The iPad Air lost three whole hours of battery life for video playback after we installed iOS 9, the latest version of Apple's operating system. We suggest waiting a month or two after OS releases for initial problems to be smoothed out before updating. Hive addressed our concerns about the privacy of its app 9. We convinced Hive to stop sharing your personal data Our investigation into smart thermostat privacy revealed that Hive was sending unencrypted data, including what times heating was set to go on and off with labels such as 'awake' and 'away'. This means that someone who had tapped into your wi-fi could feasibly see whether you were at home or not. Hive said that though it did not believe there were security risks, it has now encrypted the information. 10. We picked 1,523kg of tomatoes in our growing bags test Each year, we go to extraordinary lengths so we can tell you which are the best compost and growing bags for your veg. This year we picked a staggering 1,523kg of tomatoes and 313kg of cucumbers in our growing bags test to weed out the bad from the good - needless to say we're enjoying a festive break from all those summer salads.

  • 10 T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Release Date Tips The T-Mobile Galaxy S6 release date is finally here 1 which means that buyers in the United States are now keying in on the carrier s regular option and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Today, on release day, we want to offer some T-Mobile Galaxy S6 release date tips to those of you that have already ordered and those of you that are thinking about picking up a device down the road. Back in March, T-Mobile confirmed two new flagship Galaxy smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

    The two devices will take over for the Galaxy S5 as the carrier s flagship Galaxy phones and they will do so with a ton of new features and enhancements including a new design language, new processor, new camera, beautiful displays, and more. Samsung s Galaxy S6 Edge also features a curved display. Later in the month, T-Mobile started taking Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge pre-orders ahead of an April 10th release date.

    Today, T-Mobile has released the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge onto its shelves giving those who didn t pre-order a chance to walk out of the stores with a brand new smartphone. Or in some cases, smartphones. With the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 release date 2 finally here, we want to offer some last minute tips to those of you who have already put in a pre-order and to those that are still on the fence about picking up a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge.

    These T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S6 release date tips will get your brain moving and they should help make the whole experience less painful. You Don t Need to Buy It Today The first bit of advice that we want to offer to you today is this: You shouldn t feel any pressure to buy the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge today. They aren t going anywhere.

    We haven t seen any reports of lines outside T-Mobile stores or sell outs or anything crazy like that. What this means is that you should be able to wait a few days or even a few weeks before making your decision. These are expensive smartphones and if you re straddling the fence, you re not gong to want to rush into anything.

    Advertisement Take your time, be patient and enjoy the process. The T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge aren t going anywhere anytime soon. Go Hands-on Before You Buy Go hands-on with the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge before you buy.

    There are plenty of reasons why you ll want to go hands-on with these two devices but we ll give you two of the most important ones. First, you ll need to decide whether you need the curved Galaxy S6 Edge or not. The bent display is interesting but it also comes with at a premium so you ll want to be absolutely, positively sure that it s necessary.

    A majority of you probably won t want or need it but you ll want to make sure. The other reason is the Galaxy S6 price. T-Mobile s Galaxy S5 is much cheaper than the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

    So you ll want to make sure that you, or a loved one, need what the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge offer. Some of you will be fine getting last year s model but you won t know that until you go hands-on with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Do that before buying.

    Research T-Mobile s Other Flagships You should also take the time to go hands-on with T-Mobile s other flagship smartphones before buying the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge. It has a ton of top notch choices on its shelves right now and you ll want to compare them to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Check out the LG G3 and Moto X before buying.

    You ll also want to check out the HTC One M9, T-Mobile s new HTC flagship 3 . And if you re not loyal to Android, you ll want to check out the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two of the best phones on the market. We also recommend keeping an eye on the latest LG G4 rumors.

    LG will be announcing the LG G4 later this month 4 and there s a very good chance that it will instantly become one of the top Android smartphones on the market. T-Mobile will almost certainly opt to carry the LG G4. You Can Now Buy the Gold Galaxy S6 Today s T-Mobile Galaxy S6 release date has incorporated all of T-Mobile s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge models.

    Before today, the gold 32GB and 64GB Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge models were listed as coming soon. Today, they are available to order. Choose your color wisely 5 .

    We haven t seen the green or blue models pop up yet so note that you re probably going to be waiting quite awhile for those options to hit shelves. Samsung is well known for giving exclusives to retailers and carriers so there s a chance that neither color will end up on T-Mobile. Track Your Orders We recommend that all Galaxy S6 buyers, current and future, keep tabs on tracking information, especially if you work during the week.

    You don t want your precious cargo sitting out on your doorstep for eight hours while you sit in your office. If that reflects your situation, you might want to see if you can get the delivery company to hold onto your package at a physical location where it s safe and secure. You might also direct your shipment to your place of work though most of you probably won t have a billing address attached to your office.

    Look Out For T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Deals T-Mobile is offering a few Galaxy S6 deals on today s release date. If you re looking to buy some accessories with your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, you can input code ACCSAVE25 and save 25% off accessories. That s huge for those of you that were already planning to buy Galaxy S6 accessories with your new device.

    It s also worth noting that T-Mobile is knocking $30 off its Samsung Gear Circle Bluetooth headset. You also have two more days to take advantage of the carrier s free Netflix deal 6 . While we haven t seen any price cuts, be on the lookout.

    T-Mobile is the UnCarrier and it has been known to deliver some early discounts on flagship smartphones to help attract people to its network. T-Mobile vs. Other Galaxy S6 Carriers We ve also put together a Galaxy S6 carrier comparison 7 that takes a look at how the carrier stacks up against its top rivals.

    If you re a free agent and you don t necessarily need to buy the Galaxy S6 on T-Mobile, we recommend taking a look at the comparison before making your move. T-Mobile Jump vs. Off-Contract We recently put together a comparison that highlights the differences 8 between T-Mobile Jump and buying the device off-contract.

    We highly recommend taking a look at that if you re not sure how to buy the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge on T-Mobile. Dig Into Your Storage Needs Before You Buy T-Mobile s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge models come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. Neither device comes with a microSD card slot which means that getting the correct amount of storage is extremely important.

    You don t want to spend too much money and you want to get a device that fits your storage needs. We recommend looking at your current phone s storage, investigating your habits, and coming to a decision about how much storage you ll need. This applies even if you re not planning to buy for a few weeks.

    Please, please, don t guess at what you might need. Really dig in. Many of you will be fine with 32GB of storage space.

    However, there will be those of you that need a whole lot more for games, photos, video, and other files. The sooner you decide, the sooner you can prepare your bank account. The T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Release Is Limited One final reminder.

    Don t be the person that walks into Best Buy expecting to buy a T-Mobile phone. And don t be the person with fingers crossed hoping for a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 release at Amazon. Neither will happen.

    Advertisement If you want to buy the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, you re going to need to go through T-Mobile or an authorized seller.

    T-Mobile s retail reach isn t as large as AT&T, Sprint and Verizon so your options are going to be far more limited.

  • 122 drivers caught on mobile phones in just ONE month DRIVER ALERT: Humberside Police ran a campaign during October to educate drivers to the dangers of using a mobile phone while driving Comments (11) 1 MORE than 120 drivers were caught on their mobile phones in just one month as part of a crackdown by Humberside Police. Figures released to the Mail show 122 people were guilty of the offence during the campaign, which ran throughout October. Of those caught, 38 were in the East Riding and 22 were in Hull. The rest were stopped by officers in North and North East Lincolnshire. The East Riding figures fell from last year's campaign, where 54 drivers were caught, but rose by two in Hull. Related content Although the drivers were given tickets for the offences, casualty reduction officers PC Simon Carlisle and PC Barry Gardner said the main aim of the campaign was to educate people on the dangers of using a mobile while driving. PC Gardner said: "It is not just about people paying fines or going to court, it is about educating drivers about why using a phone at the wheel is so dangerous. "If road traffic collisions result in serious injuries or fatalities, then police officers will seize mobile phones from drivers involved to make sure they were not being used just before the crash." If a motorist is caught using a phone at the wheel, they will be given three points on their licence and a fine of 100. If a case goes to court, motorists can be disqualified from driving and face a fine of up to 1,000. They will also be encouraged to go on a driver awareness course. PC Carlisle said: "Legislation was introduced in December 2003, which prohibits the use of handheld mobile phones while driving. "There is growing evidence the use of mobile phones is becoming a more common contributory causation factor in many serious collisions. "It is the mental distraction more than the physical distraction that causes the problems." 'It is extremely dangerous' PC Barry Gardner said: "The problem we have now is just about everyone has a mobile phone or some kind of device on them. "People cannot wait to read a text or look on the internet. We are looking to get the message out there that this is extremely dangerous and it can cost lives."

  • 13 features we'd like to see in iOS 9 Apple will likely introduce the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 9, at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Apple will reportedly focus on under-the-hood improvements, mainly for the sake of refining and polishing the current experience on its mobile devices. According to 9to5Mac s Mark Gurman 1 , Apple is placing a big emphasis on bug fixes and performance enhancements to make everything run faster and more efficiently on iPhones and iPads.

    The company is also expected to release a public beta 2 for the next version of iOS, which would let you test the software before it s released, even if you re not a developer. Though we d be happy with Apple fixing what it already has, we re holding out hope for some important tweaks and additions. The Settings app in iOS is huge, and it's not necessarily easy to find what you're looking for -- some applications may spread their preferences across multiple folders within the Settings app, which can be confusing.

    Apple needs to bring its Spotlight Search functionality to Settings, which would make everything so much easier to find. Siri has a deep knowledge base, but it has no actual memory. It can't remember previous questions you've asked it, so it's basically a glorified question-and-answer application.

    But Siri was meant to be a virtual assistant, so Apple should let it 3 : If Apple let Siri interact with other apps or remember your personal preferences like Google Now, it could scan your data to proactively tell you to bring a coat before leaving for work in the morning, or let you know about an unforeseen scheduling conflict. Apple has begun experimenting integrating Siri into third-party services -- in iOS 8, Siri can identify what song's playing thanks to Shazam, and it offers you options to play the radio through Spotify, in addition to iTunes. Apple needs to keep opening up Siri so it can actually carry out tasks that Apple can't manage directly.

    Another feature that needs third-party support is the NFC chip that's in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the Apple Watch, and the next batch of iPhones set to launch in the fall. Since iOS 9 will support all of these NFC-enabled devices, opening up the NFC chip could result in interesting innovations: Since NFC can let devices communicate with store terminals, developers have plenty of motivation to create novel and satisfying experiences for this mobile technology. In the same way OS X Mavericks introduced new battery-saving techniques for the software running on the Mac, it would be great to see iOS 9 offer more ways to save power -- features and preferences users can toggle on and off, as well as a toolkit for developers so they can update their apps.

    The reddit app for iPhone, in 'dark mode.' Reducing the screen's brightness doesn't quite cut it sometimes. Some apps from Apple and third parties offer a 'night mode,' and it would be great to see Apple implement this look system-wide, on those occasions you're trying to sleep or trying to wake up but you don't want to stare at a white screen. The iPhone keyboard has a globe icon in the bottom left corner: When you click it, you'll see options to text in a language, in Emoji, or in any one of the new third-party keyboards you downloaded since iOS 8 went live last fall.

    Unfortunately, this menu is kind of a mess, and it's common to accidentally summon a keyboard you don't want just by pressing on the globe icon once. Third-party keyboards are a nice addition, but they need to leave the keyboard menu and go to the Settings app where they belong. You can't delete Apple's baked-in first-party apps 4 -- Passbook, Tips, Stocks, FaceTime, iBooks, Compass, Maps, Health, Newsstand, and many more -- but you should be able to.

    These apps should be on your phone when you first buy it, but you should have the option to remove them from your phone so they don't take up so much valuable room. Especially since the company still offers 16GB iPhones 5 . iTunes Match is a great concept: You buy a $US25/year subscription and Apple will store all your music in the cloud so you can stream it on any device, or choose to store it for offline listening.

    Unfortunately, the implementation is messy and buggy, where on your music can suddenly and randomly disappear from your phone when it's synchronizing, making it a pain to re-download all your stuff from the cloud. Apple needs to smooth out this software, big time. Wallpapers look beautiful on the iPhone, but Apple has few built-in, animated options.

    Apple is adding a ton of interesting animated wallpapers to the Apple Watch -- flowers, animals, and more -- and the iPhone deserves the same degree of attention. Owners of the iPhone 6 Plus can turn their phone sideways and the entire interface will turn sideways. Most apps work in landscape, too, so it's actually pretty easy to use your phone in landscape mode without returning to portrait for any given reason.

    This feature should come to the iPhone 6 -- the screen is big enough to handle it. The data in Apple Maps is constantly getting better, but Apple still needs help connecting the dots. It's been rumoured for years now that Apple would add options to get directions for public transportation and bike routes, two key features in Google's popular Maps app that Apple's offering is sorely missing.

    The Control Center was a super useful addition in iOS 7: You can easily adjust your phone's brightness or music, or even turn on the phone's flashlight, with a simple swipe from the bottom of the screen.

    But as we mentioned earlier, the iPhone has a ton of options and controls in the Settings app; it would be nice to choose which of those settings can be dropped into the Control Center for easy on/off toggling.

  • 15 Best HTC One M9 Accessories The HTC One M9 1 is finally available in the United States as of late last week, and that means owners and potential buyers have plenty of options when it comes to choosing cases, covers, stands and other accessories for the new phone. If you just bought the HTC One M9, below is a roundup of some accessories worth considering. HTC s One M9 is available on almost all carriers in the United States, and now that it s here multiple accessories are available from HTC themselves, and 3rd party manufacturers.

    It already has plenty to offer with the new 20.7 megapixel camera, front facing speakers, and a great design, but below we ll go over a collection of some of the best or most useful HTC One M9 accessories so far. Read: HTC One M9 Review: More of the Same 2 Like last year HTC will offer the popular Dot View Case 3 and this time around it has added features and functionality, as well as 8-bit style games you can play without ever opening the case. Keeping your screen safe and entertaining you at the same time.

    That is one of the many options we ve outlined below for potential buyers. The HTC One M9 comes with a bright and vivid 5-inch 1080p HD display, a powerful 8-core processor, a new 20.7 megapixel camera, the same dual front facing boomsound speakers, and the latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop under the HTC Sense 7 interface. The theme engine lets you change the look of your device, and the accessories we ve rounded out will let you get more from it in general.

    If you re still debating whether or not to buy the One M9, our review above gives you plenty of information. It s an excellent phone, yes, but looks extremely similar to the model last year. However, if you did buy it, get some accessories and enjoy your new phone to the fullest.

    Advertisement HTC One M9 Cases 1 / 15 There are multiple different cases readily available already to protect that two-tone brushed aluminum design, but many don't want a case to cover up the beauty that is the One M9. That said, head to Amazon and get one of the many options available, or buy HTC's own neat Dot View Case. The Dot View case for the HTC One M8 was a surprise and exciting accessory many loved.

    The all TPU flip cover case was excellent at protecting the phone, but the little dots in the plastic allowed for users to answer calls, check the weather and more all with the case closed. The screen would glow through the small dot view and give users information at a glance. This year the new Dot View will let users customize what all can be shown while the screen is still closed, customize the colors and lights of notifications, and there s even neat little games like Brickles and more all playable without ever opening your case.

    It s pretty neat, and runs you $39 in multiple colors. It s expensive, but protects your phone while allowing you to do more than most cases. It appears to be sold out, but another ICE version with a clear back so you can show off that brushed aluminum design is available for $49.

  • 1500 mobile phones to be launched in 2015: ReportNEW DELHI: As mobile phone brands like Xiaomi, Asus, Motorola, Obi etc slug it out to increase their market share in India, around 1,400-1,500 new models are expected to be launched in 2015, a report has said. "We expect around 1,400-1,500 phone launches in 2015, up around 20% from 2014," 91mobiles.com said in a report. Last year witnessed 1,137 total phone launches whereas in 2013 the number stood at 957. The research and comparison website for mobile phones and gadgets, has a database of over 20,000 devices and claims over 40 million people visited the website in 2014. "The trend will continue as the new brands such as Xiaomi, Motorola, Asus, Obi etc look to intensify their presence in the Indian market, while the incumbents are likely to put up a strong fight by launching several devices that cater to a larger variety of consumer preferences and price points," Mathur said.

    The report said second or third-time smartphone buyers were moving up to higher-end devices in 2013 and 2014. "However, in starting early to mid 2014, offerings from several new brands like Xiaomi, Motorola, Lenovo and Asus started providing the specs and reliability of higher end devices within the Rs 5-15,000 price range." It said such devices also allowed consumers to opt for faster upgrade cycles instead of buying Rs 40,000+ phones, which they would then have to use for longer. "This led to average selling price of smartphones to fall by 18% in 2014," it added. The report said this trend of value for money devices dominating is likely to continue in 2015, although the Rs 15,000-25,000 range is likely to grow in popularity.

  • 16 Reasons You May Just LOVE The BlackBerry Passport The BlackBerry Passport launched earlier this year and was immediately awarded the title of the most marmite phone to ever be released; you either loved the way it looked and what it stood for or you absolutely hated it. We were interested in the handset ever since word first broke about it, and after testing it we were very impressed it scored 4.5 out of 5 in our BlackBerry Passport Review 1 . Speaking to Fortune, IDC analyst, Ramon Llamas said, It s great to see BlackBerry step outside of its comfort zone and forge its own path in terms of design.

    Passport won t get confused with previous BlackBerry models like the Bold and Q10, and the large screen keeps BlackBerry in pace with the competition. But Ken Dulaney at Gartner sees BB10, not the Passport, at fault for BlackBerry s performance during the past couple of years, The issue will be the Blackberry 10 software. While well designed, it suffers from a lack of applications and doesn t have the funding that Microsoft, Apple, and Google have.

    But as the great Mr. Dylan said: The Times They Are A Changin'... And, lord knows, BlackBerry needed something big to get it out of its three-year downward spiral in the consumer space.

    Back in 2012, many thought Thorsten Heins proposals would propel the company back in to contention with an emphasis on THE PLATFORM 2 and enabling as much productivity as possible but sales did not reflect confidence in the man s vision. New CEO John Chen has built on what Heins developed and added in a lot more besides. And the result was an excellent finish to 2014 for the company.

    There are still a few issues to be ironed out here and there but progress is very much underway. BlackBerry 10.3 is a great platform, replete with excellent features and a much-needed new look that makes it instantly more appealing than previous builds seen on the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10. I really enjoyed getting reacquainted with BlackBerry 10 and a keyboard and, generally speaking, had pretty much all my expectations blown out of the water by the Passport.

    Prior reviews I d read had simply lampooned the handset, which made me start to question my judgement was I even reviewing the same device? Turns out I was, but that as they say is another story entirely, so we ll just put that down to different strokes for different folks. The Passport is not perfect by any stretch, but it is a solid, reliable and very intriguing proposition that has helped BlackBerry mount something of a comeback in the latter part of 2014.

    Now, we re not talking iPhone-levels of sales here, nowhere near that level, but the Passport has sold well and breathed some much needed confidence into a company that, just six months ago, had been all but written off. Here are 16 things that make the handset stand out for the crowd. Design Different is GOOD Everything looks the same these days.

    Just look around you: all handsets are a variation on a theme, using the same rectangular proportions and screen layout. The BlackBerry Passport is like no other, however, with its squared-off design, ultra-wide chassis, physical QWERTY keyboard and premium build materials. Like the Tesla Model S, it s eye-catching and more and more people are slowly waking up to the fact that, actually, this style might just work.

    Display Unlike a lot of Android 3 handsets these days, BlackBerry like Apple has opted to stick with 1080p resolution displays on its flagship handset rather than the now-flavour-of-the-month QHD standard. And the upshot of this is a still-awesome visual experience with excellent colour and contrast as well as brilliant battery life (QHD panels guzzle juice like a lush in a distillery). DAT QWERTY Yep, the keyboard is definitely one of the high-points of the Passport.

    Prior to my review of the handset, I was initially a bit dubious about switching back to a physical QWERTY but after just a few minutes it all started to come back to me and a day or two later I was hooked. Also, the keyboard on the Passport is perhaps the best BlackBerry keyboard I ve ever used and that s saying something when you consider the lineage of handsets the company has produced. It just seamlessly straddles the hardware and software, making everything quicker and emails a dream.

    Battery Life s Great The BlackBerry Passport is in the top 1% of smartphones in this regard. With medium use you re looking at a good couple of days. Heavy usage, which, lets face it most of us do, will see you through a full charge in just over 24 hours.

    No other handset including the excellent iPhone 6 Plus can hold a candle to the BlackBerry Passport in this context. Awesome Specs AND Hardware BlackBerry handsets of old often lacked a lot of the hardware and spec capabilities found inside their Android and iOS-powered counterparts. The BlackBerry Passport bucks that trend completely and features a raft of high-end spec and hardware, including a Snapdragon 801 CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage AND an updated 13MP camera with Optical Image Stabilisation.

    It RUNS Android Apps With BlackBerry 10.3 it is EVEN easier to install Android applications on your BlackBerry Passport because all the .BAR converting is done on device, saving you oodles of time. This is a brand new feature of BB10.3 and the long and short of this new ability is this: access to Google Play. I know, amazing!

    All you need to do is download SNAP and you re away. That s it. Simple and it also pretty much solves the whole app-gap problem, too.

    BB10 Native Apps Are Actually Really, Really Nice But let s not forget just how nice native BB10 applications can actually be. Just look at this one for USA Today. It s easy to use, looks great and takes advantage of all that wonderful screen real estate you have at your disposal.

    Now all we need is more! BlackBerry Blend This is an absolute KILLER feature, as it lets you to pick up emails, texts and BBMs on a PC, MAC or tablet when you re away from your phone (or can t be bothered to take it out of your pocket). BlackBerry Blend works across Wi-Fi 4 , mobile data and via USB.

    The big deal though is the fact that Blend works on 3G and 4G , as this technically means you can access your BlackBerry from a PC or tablet anywhere in the world, providing you have Blend installed and your BlackBerry device, wherever it may be, is switched on.

  • 16 ways to save and make money using your mobile phone As well as making life easier, smartphones can also help us save and make money on the move. Here are 16 ways to boost your bank balance on the move. Manage money on the go Smartphones can help you manage your money anytime and anywhere. All the major banks and building societies including Lloyds Bank 1 , Santander 2 , HSBC 3 , NatWest 4 , RBS 5 , Halifax 6 , TSB 7 , Barclays 8 and Nationwide 9 have a mobile app that allow you to see transactions, manage direct debits and standing orders, make payments and transfer money quickly and securely. This instant access to information and actions means you have greater control over your finances. You can for example monitor spending to avoid slipping into the red, pay bills or friends quickly, move money into your savings and look out for signs of identity theft. Earn up to 5% on your money: compare high-interest current accounts 10 Be better with money There are loads of apps that can help you be better with your money. Toshl 11 is a popular app that helps you keep track of where all your money is going. It allows you to set a budget, keep on top of bills and help you achieve saving targets. The free app is available for Apple, Android, Windows Phone and Symbian handsets. Cut your energy bills All the major energy companies have their own apps, which can help you save money on your gas and electricity costs. Generally, they allow you to see bills, make payments, look at your energy consumption, view your tariff information and get energy saving tips. They all also allow you to submit gas and electricity meter readings which will mean you get an accurate bill rather than an estimated bill. British Gas 12 , nPower 13 , Scottish Power 14 , EDF 15 and E.ON 16 have apps available for both Apple and Android devices while the SSE 17 app is limited to just Apple users. See if you could save big money by switching your energy supplier 18 Control your heating Hive 19 is an app from British Gas that lets you control your heating and hot water anywhere and at any time. It s supposed to help cut waste and save money as you can use it to programme your heating and hot water more precisely. British Gas claims it could save households up to 150 a year. The app available for Apple and Android users is free but you will need to have the right equipment working in the background for it all to work, which will cost around 200. Get paid back Your smartphone can take the hassle out of getting friends and family to pay you back when you foot the bill for things like gig tickets and restaurant meals. The Payfriendz 20 app for example allows you to message people you know to ask for money they owe, as well as send and receive payments. You just need to link a UK debit card to put money into your account to send money to friends or send a request for money via the app. The app is available on Apple and Android devices. There s also Paym 21 . This service works by linking your mobile number to your current account. This means instead of needing a sort code and account number friends and family can use your mobile number to make a payment as long as they ve also registered for the service. Start a kitty For more complicated shared expenses there is a free app called KiTTi powered by Santander, available for Apple and Android users. 22 It allows up to 100 people to pay money into a digital kitty, which can be accessed by a pre-paid MasterCard to pay for anything. It s designed to take the hassle out of collecting money from large groups for things like a holiday or a birthday gift. Make free international calls Your smartphone can help you keep in touch with friends and family all over the world for free. With WhatsApp Messenger 23 , available free for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Symbian and Windows Phone, you can send messages, create group chats, send unlimited images and make calls to any country as long as you have an internet connection and the other person also has the app. Skype 24 works in the same way and is available for Apple, Android, Windows, blackberry and Amazon Fire Phone users. Downloading the free app will let you send messages and make calls to other Skype users anywhere in the world for free. Cut your car insurance premiums Telematics technology allows good drivers to save on their car insurance. Normally this involves fitting a device to a car to monitor driving style and habits, but now there are a range of mobile apps that can do the same job. For example the Aviva Drive app 25 , available for Apple, Android and Windows Phone users, gives you the chance to test your driving skills over 200 miles, and get up to 20% off your comprehensive car insurance. Safer drivers save an average of 112 on the cost of an annual policy. See if you can drive down the cost of your car insurance by shopping around 26 Check if you're a millionaire Premium Bond holders can check if they have a won a prize with the NS&I Prize Checker app 27 . It will show you the prizes this month and anything you may have won in the previous six draws, plus any prizes older than 18 months which you haven t claimed since your bonds first entered the draw. The NS&I Prize Checker app 28 is available for Apple and Android devices. There are thought to be 41 million of Premium Bonds prizes left unclaimed so make sure you get what you are due. Related story: December 2015's big money Premium Bonds winning numbers 29 Earn rewards for making changes Some smartphone apps encourage better behaviour and incentivise this with rewards. For example, Clean Space 30 for example is a free app for Apple and Android that offers discounts and freebies for every mile a user runs, walks or cycles rather than taking the car or using public transport. You can collect CleanMiles and unlock rewards when you reach certain targets. For example, with one mile you can get a free coffee at Upper Crust while 15 miles gets a 5 credit towards PayasUgym. Never miss a bargain Your smartphone can help make sure you never miss out on a bargain wherever you are. With the free eBay mobile app 31 for example you can keep track of everything you are buying and watching. It gives you alerts when you are outbid, when an auction is about to end and allows you to send messages to sellers about items. It can also be used to find local bargains wherever you are. There s also Shpock 32 , a free app that allows you to buy and sell things in your local area. Make money from clutter Your smartphone can help get you make money from your old stuff. The free MusicMagpie app allows you to scan unwanted CDs, DVDs and games to get an instant trade in price. The Ziffit and Zapper apps do the same thing and are also worth a try to see if they offer more for your clutter. 33 34 35 Earn cashback as you shop You can earn cashback when you shop online, even with your mobile phone. Cashback websites Quidco 36 and TopCashback 37 both have their own free apps which allow you to shop via tracked links and earn money back on what you spend. These also allow you to get cashback when you shop in-store. Pick up freebies With the free CheckoutSmart app 38 , you can make supermarket shopping more rewarding. It pays cashback on certain items when you snap a picture of the receipt. So it s great for picking up the odd loaf of bread or a bottle of soft drink. The app is available for Apple and Android users. Never miss out on a deal Your smartphone can help make sure you never miss out on savings when you are out and about. The free Vouchercodes.co.uk app 39 , available for Apple and Android devices, can help you find money off codes for shops, restaurants and entertainment to use in-store and online, wherever you are. The app is handy if you find yourself making an impromptu trip to Pizza Express or making an impulse purchase on the high street and want to save. The free Vouchercloud app 40 , available for Apple, Android, Windows and Blackberry devices, is also great for finding discounts on the go. It can use your location to reveal offers for shops and restaurants nearby, you can also save offers for later and select your favourite retailers to be the first to know about the latest deals. While the HotUKDeals app 41 , available for Apple, Android and Windows devices, allows you to access all the latest deals, voucher codes, freebies, price glitches and competitions found by HotUKDeals members. You can sign up for alerts and browse offline. Reap the rewards of contactless payments Smartphones could soon replace our wallets as more are enabled for making contactless payments. Apple Pay 42 , for example, allows iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch users to link their cards to make payments with their device in-store or through apps. As well as making life more convenient there are rewards for using the technology. MasterCard, for example, is offering Apple Pay users free travel in London on December 7 and 14. While TSB offers 5% cashback on Apple Pay payments to Classic Plus current account holders. Make money when you spend with a cashback credit card 43 References ^ Lloyds Bank (www.lloydsbank.com) ^ Santander (www.santander.co.uk) ^ HSBC (www.hsbc.co.uk) ^ NatWest (personal.natwest.com) ^ RBS (personal.rbs.co.uk) ^ Halifax (www.halifax.co.uk) ^ TSB (www.tsb.co.uk) ^ Barclays (www.barclays.co.uk) ^ Nationwide (www.nationwide.co.uk) ^ Earn up to 5% on your money: compare high-interest current accounts (bt.lovemoney.com) ^ Toshl (toshl.com) ^ British Gas (www.britishgas.co.uk) ^ nPower (www.npower.com) ^ Scottish Power (www.scottishpower.co.uk) ^ EDF (www.edfenergy.com) ^ E.ON (www.eonenergy.com) ^ SSE (www.southern-electric.co.uk) ^ See if you could save big money by switching your energy supplier (bt.lovemoney.com) ^ Hive (www.hivehome.com) ^ Payfriendz (www.payfriendz.com) ^ Paym (www.paym.co.uk) ^ KiTTi (www.kitti.co.uk) ^ WhatsApp Messenger (www.whatsapp.com) ^ Skype (www.skype.com) ^ Aviva Drive app (www.aviva.co.uk) ^ See if you can drive down the cost of your car insurance by shopping around (bt.lovemoney.com) ^ NS&I Prize Checker app (www.nsandi.com) ^ NS&I Prize Checker app (www.nsandi.com) ^ Related story: December 2015's big money Premium Bonds winning numbers (home.bt.com) ^ Clean Space (our.clean.space) ^ eBay mobile app (anywhere.ebay.co.uk) ^ Shpock (en.shpock.com) ^ MusicMagpie app (www.musicmagpie.co.uk) ^ Ziffit (www.ziffit.com) ^ Zapper (zapper.co.uk) ^ Quidco (www.quidco.com) ^ TopCashback (www.awin1.com) ^ CheckoutSmart app (www.checkoutsmart.com) ^ Vouchercodes.co.uk app (www.vouchercodes.co.uk) ^ Vouchercloud app (www.vouchercloud.com) ^ HotUKDeals app (www.google.co.uk) ^ Apple Pay (www.lovemoney.com) ^ Make money when you spend with a cashback credit card (bt.lovemoney.com)

  • 18-year-old charged for allegedly stealing customer's truck from rental agency lot When a Lebanon man returned his rental car to a local agency, he discovered someone stole his truck while he was out of town and apparently took his truck on a muddy joyride. The Laclede County Prosecuting Attorney's office has charged the suspected truck thief, 18-year-old Alexander Shilo Clark with first-degree tampering, a class C felony, following an investigation by the Lebanon Police Department. At press time, Clark was still being held in the Laclede County Jail.

Another officer was contacted and was able to find the stole truck and conduct a traffic stop on Lynn Street, according to a probable cause statement filed by the LPD.

    The truck, which belonged to a customer who had left it at Enterprise after renting a car, was reportedly covered in mud both inside and outside of the vehicle. For the complete article, see Tuesday ' s print edition of The D aily Record, or v iew the e-Edition online.

Banks and credit unions supporting Apple Pay are BMO Harris, Cambridge Savings, Point Bank, US Bank, Sandy Spring Bank, KeyBank, GTE Financial and more.

    MasterCard small business card from Bethpage Federal Credit Union or Navy Federal Credit Union can also now leverage Apple Pay. Consumers want to be able to shop where they want, when they want and how they want and they want to do so with the confidence that their money is safe and secure no matter how they choose to pay, said Matt Barr, group head, U.S. Emerging Payments MasterCard.

    Last month, Marriott hotels in the US announced they will support Apple Pay beginning summer 2015 for check-in and check-out facilities.

  • 200GB memory card by SanDisk Date: 08/03/2015 200GB memory card by SanDisk 200GB Ultra microSD-XC UHS-I card is launched by SanDisk. Now mobile phone users can capture, save and share photos, videos and other files without worrying about storage limitations. With 200 GB microSD card available, soon you can expect 1 TB microSD card.

    This means huge memory space for all your storage in your mobile phone, well it seems so, but over the years, who knows the 1 TB space may not be enough. Each individual want to store the whole world on their memory card. The 3-D NAND flash memory technology improvement is making all that possible.

    The problem with the storage is becoming more of retrieving the data rather than then storing the data. Let's hope one day memory card solution providers may also offers Smart memory so that users are provided with their favourite data with easy access, maybe voice based control of memory. If you're worrying about the speed of the transfer of data in these kind of memory cards, the data speed is 90MB/s, so you can expect to move up to 1,200 photos per minute.

    SanDisk is also providing app called OptiMem Memory Zone app to monitor the phone s memory levels to inform users whenever the internal memory falls below a user-defined threshold. Once this threshold is reached, the OptiMem app feature will automatically transfer some of their old photos and videos to their microSD card. The 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card with ten-year limited warranty is priced at $399.99 and is available in the second quarter of 2015.

  • 2015 People look devices at the LG stand during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona March 5, 2015. Reuters pic BARCELONA, March 6 Got a phone charger you can lend me? No, I need the new type...

    Oh, forget it. To ease the stress of a dying mobile phone battery and the hassle of bundling wires into your bag, designers are hoping to make 2015 the year of the wireless charger. Companies at the Mobile World Congress, a top telecom fair which wrapped up Thursday in Barcelona, Spain, promised that soon you will just place your phone on a table or lamp stand for it to absorb electricity through a wireless surface.

    South Korean giant Samsung included wireless charging capability in its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6, unveiled on March 1 in Barcelona. Swedish furniture-maker Ikea meanwhile announced a line of bedside tables, lamps and desks equipped with wireless charging spots to be launched in Europe and North America in the coming weeks. This is probably the year of the wireless charger, said Kevin Curran, a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, ahead of the mobile fair.

    A lot of the top-end phones now by default are coming with a wireless charger. You just have to put the phone onto a mat or onto a stand. If a phone has a wireless charging receptor, just placing it over the charging pad on one of these items will transfer power to it.

    The piece of furniture itself is not wireless, drawing its power from the mains, but no wire is needed to plug into the phone.

    Reuters pic Standard adapters Different rival technologies for wireless charging have emerged over recent years. For their devices, Samsung and Ikea opted for the Qi standard a system developed by the Wireless Power Consortium, an alliance of some 200 different companies founded in 2008. The Qi consortium claims its standard is the most widely used in the world with charging points in 3,000 hotels, restaurants, airports and public spaces.

    It says its system can be used in 80 models of mobile phone and various types of car. The product announcements at the Barcelona show will allow a big step forward, eventually freeing users of cumbersome charging wires, said Inge Tauber of the German company L&P Automotive, part of the Qi project. People have no need to fear that their chargers will become obsolete, because these bases will be compatible with the new generations of smartphone.

    Even smartphones that were not made with a wireless charging receptor can be fitted with adaptors in the form of an outer case or other minor accessory costing from about ' 10 (RM40.296). Wireless charging race Qi is competing with two other standards, PMA and A4WP, which between them group some 200 other telecom, computing and electronics firms. The PMA and A4WP camps will merge in mid-2015 to accelerate the growth of this nascent market, they said in a statement.

    Tauber denied this competition would hold back the industry from developing a common standard for compatible charging pads. She reckoned it would drive it towards a homogenous standard . Makers of smartphones have so far failed to find a common standard for any kind of charger, despite attempts such as the European Union s bid to impose universal chargers by 2016.

    Analysts said it was tricky to estimate the potential value of the market for wireless chargers. The Wireless Power Consortium estimates that 50 million chargers were sold in 2014. According to technology consultancy Gartner, in that year consumers bought 1.8 billion handsets which typically come with a charger included.

    In the next few years they will all have wireless chargers in-built, Curran said.

  • 2015 Could Witness up to 1500 Phone Launches: Report As mobile phone brands such as Xiaomi 1 , Asus, Motorola, 2 Obi etc slug it out for increasing their market share in India, around 1,400-1,500 new models are expected to be launched in 2015, a report said today. "We expect around 1,400-1,500 phone launches in 2015, up around 20 per cent from 2014," 91mobiles.com said in a report. Last year witnessed 1,137 total phone launches whereas in 2013 the number stood at 957. The research and comparison website for mobile phones 3 and gadgets, has a database of over 20,000 devices 4 and claims over 40 million people visited the website in 2014. "The trend will continue as the new brands such as Xiaomi, Motorola, Asus, Obi etc look to intensify their presence in the Indian market, while the incumbents are likely to put up a strong fight by launching several devices that cater to a larger variety of consumer preferences and price points," Mathur said.

    Recommended: Top 5 Latest Microsoft Windows Phones To Buy In India Right Now 5 The report said second or third-time smartphone buyers were moving up to higher-end devices in 2013 and 2014. "However, in starting early to mid 2014, offerings from several new brands like Xiaomi, Motorola, Lenovo and Asus started providing the specs and reliability of higher end devices within the Rs 5-15k price range." It said such devices also allowed consumers to opt for faster upgrade cycles instead of buying 40k+ phones, which they would then have to use for longer. "This led to average selling price of smartphones to fall by 18 per cent in 2014," it added. The report said this trend of value for money devices dominating is likely to continue in 2015, although the Rs 15,000-Rs 25,000 range is likely to grow in popularity.

  • 3 Internet of Things Companies Making Tech for Apple Inc. There are plenty of technology companies that have their components in Apple ( NASDAQ: AAPL 1 2 ) iPhones, but a handful of them are using their expertise in mobile devices to transition into the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT). Investors looking for tech stocks that have a future beyond just mobile devices -- take a look at these three companies delving into the IoT. Sensing movement in the Internet of Things InvenSense ( NYSE: INVN 3 4 ) provides the micro electro-mechanical system (MEMS) gyroscopes for motion tracking in the iPhone 6 lineup.

    In its third quarter 2015 earnings 5 , Apple made up 45% of InvenSense revenue. But the company is also betting big that its MEMS will play a huge role in the IoT as well. That is good news -- according to IHS , the "explosive expansion of the Internet of things is driving rapid demand growth" for micro electro-mechanical systems.

    That may be why the company introduced the M3 system-on-a-chip at the Consumer Electronics Show last month, which combines a 6-axis motion sensor with digital motion processors, proprietary software, an ARM CPU, and embedded flash -- all into a 3x3 millimeter space. CEO Behrooz Abdi had this to say about the chip: In addition to mobile, this single-chip IoT device has applications in many market segments including wearable, smartphone, the smart home, gaming, drones, industrial, and automotive and lends itself well to anchoring compelling modular IoT solutions with full connectivity and memory powering exciting new vertical markets. Invensense has been a bear in the market over the past 12 months -- down 25% -- with some of the negative movements coming from investors unhappy with the drop in gross margins.

    But for those looking for a long-term IoT play that has the tech chops to produce top notch components for Apple, don't write this company off just yet. Strong connections for Apple and IoT Behind strong cellular connections is Skyworks Solutions ( NASDAQ: SWKS 6 7 ) , which makes the analog and mixed signal semiconductors for the iPhone and iPad. Apple uses Skyworks radio frequency technology to boost signals from its mobile devices to telecom carriers.

    Skyworks is not the sole provider of these chips in Apple devices, but its share of components in those devices is growing. About 20% to 25% more Skyworks technology is in the new iPhone compared to the iPhone 5S, according to Oppenheimer & Co. analyst, Rick Schafer.

    But just as with Invensense, Skyworks is branching out into IoT possibilities as well. Future connected devices will "require high levels of integration and will need customized solutions produced in massive scale and attractive cost points. All of these attributes play directly into Skyworks' core strengths.

    In this way, Skyworks is a conduit into the Internet of Things," CEO David Aldrich said on a recent earnings call. Aldrich added that the IoT is one of four major trends driving growth at the company this year. Some question the possibility of more growth for the company, with its stock already up 155% in 2014.

    While the company still has a lot of room to run in the Internet of Things, investors should watch pricing pressure from major OEMs, as well as increased radio frequency competition from Qualcomm . Much more than mobile payments NXP Semiconductors ( NASDAQ: NXPI 8 9 ) scored a big win a few months ago when Apple decided to use the company's near-field-communication chips to power the new Apple Pay system. Two NXP chips enable NFC payments and also secure them.

    That is a big deal for NXP, as Apple has made its payment system a key feature of both the iPhone 6 lineup and the forthcoming Apple Watch. But future prospects extend far beyond the iMaker. NXP is one of the first companies to mass-produce chips for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication systems.

    And just last month Audi -- a leader in connected vehicles -- said that NXP technology outpaced previous tests with other V2X equipment. NXP chips, along with a Delphi antenna, communicated potential hazards between two vehicles -- all while traveling over one mile apart at high speeds. And that is just part of its IoT pursuits.

    Between wearble technology like the Apple Watch, connected cars with Audi, and additional connected home technology, NXP has shown that the company is much more than a mobile chipmaker. Plenty more to come There are plenty of other companies making mobile technologies right now that will ultimately use their expertise in the IoT, but these three companies are proof that now is the time for tech companies to make the transition. Investors looking for tech investments should keep a close eye on which players are poised to use their mobile know-how for the growing Internet of Things.

  • 3 mobile carriers plan joint app store Mobile carriers in South Korea are stepping up their efforts to establish a joint mobile application market to challenge Google's Play Store and Apple's App Store. KT, LG Uplus and SK Telecom's subsidiary SK Planet said Friday they held a meeting with mobile app developers to discuss the "One Store project" earlier in the day. Around 150 developers participated in the meeting held at SK Planet's headquarters in Pangyo Techno Valley, Gyeonggi Province, according to the firms.

    KT, SK Planet and LG Uplus currently run their own app stores Olleh Market, T-Store and U+Store, respectively for their subscribers. Developers will be able to publish their apps on the joint app market and monitor analysed data including the number of downloads and sales, while the mobile subscribers of all carriers can download the apps from one market, called the One Store, which will open in May. The three carriers also plan to launch a joint website for app developers dubbed the Joint Developers Center in April and run a joint customer centre. "The One Store and online developers' centre will save the trouble of making applications for each app store operated by mobile carriers," an official from KT said.

    A market analyst predicted that the integrated app store would be able to gain some ground against Google and Apple, the leaders in the domestic market. "The collaboration to build the single app market will help grow the mobile application industry, and the mobile game app sector in particular, avoiding unnecessary competition," said Won Sung-un, vice president of KT's platform service development team.

  • 3 new Android smartphones with unique featuresNEW YORK: New Android phones appear with regularity, but far too few of them really seem ... new. Sure, cameras keep getting better and phones keep getting faster.

    For the most part, though, you'd be hard-pressed to single out many new features that aren't just tweaks for the sake of tweaking. Though manufacturers frequently customize Google's Android software to set their phones apart, those alterations often just make things worse by hiding features or breaking some apps. So it's a delight to see three phones with unusual characteristics in their hardware.

    BlackBerry's first Android phone is notable for its physical keyboard, while Motorola designed its screen to withstand cracking from accidental drops. LG's new phone has two screens and two front cameras. BlackBerry Priv (available Friday through AT&T for $740) For years, BlackBerry has struggled to make its BlackBerry 10 phone software a viable alternative to Apple's iPhone and Google's Android.

    While the company isn't giving up on BlackBerry 10, it's also hedged its bets with its first Android phone. The new Priv has a physical keyboard, a rarity on Android phones these days. It looks like any other phone until you slide the keyboard out from the bottom, like a desk drawer.

    It's an engineering feat given that the phone still feels thin, although it's thicker than Samsung's flagship phones and the iPhone. Typing on Blackberry's keyboard feels much better than it did on the original Motorola Droid in 2009. As my first smartphone, the keyboard model seemed safer given that I wasn't sold on its touch-screen counterpart.

    But on-screen keyboards have grown on me, and the Priv's physical keyboard slowed me down. Friends who've tried the new device, including former BlackBerry users, felt much the same way. BlackBerry devices are known for their security and privacy protections, and the company built some of those features into the Priv's hardware.

    It comes with an app that rates your device security based on factors such as whether you've enabled a passcode. The BlackBerry app also identifies other apps that grab personal information. I saw that Facebook has accessed my location 41 times in the past week, for instance.

    Among other notable features: * The 5.4-inch screen is curved on both sides, similar to Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge devices. Slide a toolbar from the side to access your calendar, messages and contacts. The email app is also more sophisticated than most; it supports rich-text formatting, such as italics and colors, when composing messages. * BlackBerry offers icons that serve as shortcuts to frequent tasks, such as composing a message, viewing alarms or checking data usage.

    Windows phones have a similar feature, but like BlackBerry 10, few people use them. * Battery capacity is also higher than most phones. BlackBerry promises 22.5 hours of mixed use. Motorola Droid Turbo 2 (released Oct.

    29 through Verizon for $624) Motorola replaced glass with various forms of plastic to make its 5.4-inch screen shatter-proof. Most leading smartphones use chemically strengthened glass. But it's still glass, and it will crack if it hits a hard surface with enough force.

    The shatter-proof technology allowed me to do careless things like leave the phone in a side pocket while getting a massage. Sure enough, it fell out -- but the screen survived. It also withstood two intentional drops on a concrete sidewalk, including once face down from waist height.

    One corner of the metal frame was nicked, but the screen stayed intact. SquareTrade, a company that provides extended-protection plans, subjected the Droid to 10 drops from six feet on Thursday, but found only minor dents to the screen. It then ran a Range Rover SUV over the phone 10 times.

    The screen still didn't shatter, though parts of the display turned black. Motorola's warranty covers screen shattering and cracking for four years. The company tested the phone to withstand drops from five feet on various surfaces you'd normally encounter.

    Motorola added backup touch capacitors so that the screen would still respond to touch even with some damage. Don't drop the phone from a five-story building, though. The screen might not crack, but other components could fail -- and the warranty won't cover that.

    It also won't cover scratches, which is a drag as plastic is, well, prone to scratching. For that reason, the Droid Turbo has two cover layers. The top one is replaceable using a do-it-yourself kit that sells for $30.

    Take care to keep the phone away from keys. The phone also has extended battery capacity, promised at 48 hours of mixed usage. Using the included charger, Motorola says you can get 13 hours with 15 minutes of charging.

    The bigger battery does make the device thicker than most other phones. LG V10 (available through AT&T for $700; and T-Mobile for $600 and Verizon for $672) Above the regular, 5.7-inch display is a tiny screen that's about the size of a pinkie bandage. It's a dedicated notification panel that won't obscure your main screen, though notifications still vanish after a few seconds.

    The second screen also offers quick access to settings, frequent contacts and recent apps. That second screen is always on, allowing you to check the time and weather without wasting your battery by lighting up the main screen. You also get quick access to the flashlight and camera, plus playback controls when listening to music.

    The V10 has two front cameras -- one for regular selfies, and one with a wide angle for groups. Other cameras do this by stitching together adjacent shots, similar to a panorama, but results can be spooky if people move. Meanwhile, the rear video camera offers a range of manual settings, something phones typically restrict to still images, if they offer them at all.

    These features don't stand out as much as BlackBerry's or Motorola's, though it's great to see LG innovating.

  • 3 Reasons Samsung's Galaxy S6 Could be the Greatest Phone Ever Released Samsung ( NASDAQOTH: SSNLF 1 2 ) has certainly seen better days. Late last month, the South Korean tech giant reported its quarterly results. On an annual basis, Samsung's profits fell 27%, and sales of its mobile phones dropped 21%.

    This isn't just an unfortunate aberration -- Samsung's mobile business has been in decline for nearly a year. Chinese competitors, most notably Xiaomi 3 , have been an increasingly large thorn in Samsung's side, costing it perhaps millions of handset sales at the low-end. But there's no doubt Apple 's ( NASDAQ: AAPL 4 5 ) iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are having an effect as well: sales of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 have also been disappointing.

    But while Samsung is certainly down, it may not be out -- its next handset, the Galaxy S6, could be the greatest smartphone ever made.

    1. Amazing specs Samsung's phones have never lacked for power: Its flagship Galaxies have always boasted cutting edge processors, tons of ram, enormous batteries, and high-resolution, quality displays. Samsung also included hardware features like NFC and LTE radios long before Apple.

    But in almost all these categories, Apple has caught up -- and in some instances, it has surpassed Samsung. The iPhone's processor, in particular, has been ahead of Samsung's offerings for over a year, as Apple was the first major handset vendor to offer a phone with a 64-bit processor. The Galaxy S6 could see Samsung retake the lead.

    Samsung is widely expected to use a 64-bit, eight-core processor for its Galaxy S6. That might've been Qualcomm 's Snapdragon 810, but Samsung is thought to have ditched Qualcomm's latest offering in favor of its own Exynos 7420. With its 14-nanometer construction, the Galaxy S6's processor could prove faster 6 than Apple's competing A8.

    2. A premium, unique design But more important than the processor may be the phone's design. Samsung's Galaxy phones have long been criticized for their flimsy plastic backings, and though there's really no evidence to suggest that this affects sales -- about three-quarters of smartphone owners use a case -- it may, at the very least, swing tech reviews in Samsung's favor.

    Samsung has spent the last few months reshuffling its design team. It replaced its mobile design head in May, and hired a designer from Tangerine (Jony Ive's previous employer) last month. In August, it released the Galaxy Alpha.

    Compared to the Galaxy S5, the Alpha had slightly lesser specs, but sported a higher-quality metal frame and slimmer profile. The Alpha appeared to be a sort of prototype device, hinting at a future design aesthetic that could be applied to all of Samsung's phones. More recently, leaked images of the Galaxy S6's frame ( via Android Authority 7 ) appear to show a phone that will -- like the Galaxy Alpha -- sport a metal chassis.

    But the Galaxy S6's display could be even more significant than its frame. Ahead of the Galaxy S6's unveiling, Samsung has released a teaser image suggesting that the Galaxy S6 will boast a curved display. Of course, it wouldn't be Samsung's first phone with a curved display -- it released the Galaxy Note Edge last fall 8 -- but it would be its first flagship.

    Samsung's larger displays gave it an advantage over Apple's iPhones in previous years, but the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has leveled the playing field. Offering the only flagship phone with a curved screen could give Samsung a new selling point to exploit. Like a multi-monitor setup enhances desktop productivity, a phone with curved sides could offer a better mobile experience.

    Apps could sport dedicated taskbars; mobile games could make use of the extra screen real estate.

    3. Better software Google has made a host of improvements to Android in recent years, significantly boosting the stability, speed, and features of its mobile operating system. Unfortunately, many of those improvements have not translated to a better experience for users of Samsung's Galaxy phones.

    To date, Samsung has used a modified version of Android -- dubbed TouchWiz -- that sports Google's apps and services, but suffers from a lousy, somewhat sluggish interface, duplicative apps, and garish color palette. Google's own phones -- the Nexus 4, 5, and 6 -- have been praised by tech reviewers for their use of stock Android, a version of Android free from the many nasty modifications Samsung (and other Android OEMs) often make to the operating system. Nexus phones, however, have not sold in massive quantities, as they haven't enjoyed much marketing or carrier support.

    Samsung's Galaxy S6 wouldn't face those issues. According to SamMobile 9 , Samsung is taking a Nexus-like approach to the Galaxy S6, and plans to ship the phone with a version of Android much closer to Google's. Unnecessary apps and features will be made available for download, but won't be forced on to users, and the phone should run faster and more stable.

    Samsung is down, but not out The Galaxy S6 could be the most important phone Samsung has ever released. With its TV, appliance, and semiconductor businesses, Samsung isn't as dependent on its mobile phones as Apple 10 . But in recent years, most of the growth in Samsung's earnings has come from its mobile division.

    The Galaxy S6 is likely to be an expensive handset, and it won't solve Samsung's problems with the increasing number of low-end competitors. But it could give it a super phone fully capable of taking on Apple's best handsets. Investors in the mobile space should keep a close eye on its March 1 event.

  • 30 million with unclear thumb impressions need new CNICs ISLAMABAD - Around 30 million cell phone users having SIMs still unverified due to their unclear thumb impressions in Nadra records will have to get new CNICs to keep their phones working. This was revealed by PTA Chairman Dr Ismail Shah during a lunch hosted by mobile phone companies. All the SIM owners whose thumb impressions in the Nadra records are not clear would have to get new identity cards; there is apparently no other option, Shah who is an IT expert by profession said.

    Shah said 70 million SIMs had been biometrically verified against 54 million computerised national identity cards while 11 million had been blocked. The government is embarking on a major biometric data collection effort to fight terrorism. The move was initiated by the government under the National Action Plan after the Peshawar Army Public School Massacre in December last, when security forces found that the SIMs used by the terrorists for communication were issued to other citizens while one SIM belonged to a woman residing in a far-flung village.

    On the recommendation of top spy agencies, the Interior Ministry geared up the biometric verification of the SIMs. According to Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA), there are 136 million cell-phone users in the country. After the start of biometric campaign, new SIMs were issued after biometric verification, however, around 103 million old SiMs required verification.

    The phone companies, on the directions of the Interior Ministry, arranged 80,000 machines, each costing $ 400 to read the thumb impressions of users. But retailers started charging from the citizens up to Rs 250 against the officially fixed fee of Rs 10 per verification. Dr Shah seemed helpless when asked who was fleecing the general public.

    It is unfortunate that some retailers are charging exorbitant prices; it has nothing to do with the mobile operators, we received many complaints, but we have very limited resources as compared to the magnitude of the population, he told media persons. Shah, at a standing committee meeting had justified the overcharging by stating that Rs 20 were going direct to Nadra for the data sharing. But this claim was refuted by Nadra, saying they were only charging Rs 3 per SIM verification.

    When asked if Nadra was charging only Rs 3 where the money was going, Shah could not clearly answer the repeated questions of media persons, but admitted Nadra was not charging Rs 20. I said that earlier; later, Nadra charges were reduced. Those who are overcharging are committing a crime, he said.

    Shah made it clear that there would be no extension in the deadline and after April 12 all unverified SIMs would be blocked. There would be no extension; after expiry of the deadline, all unverified SIMs would be blocked, Shah said. PTA has been giving the figures of 70 million for more than last one week, strengthening the fears of Nadra that the verification process had been halted due to due to poor quality of machines.

    And around 20-30 million SIMs could not be verified on account of faulty record of Nadra or defective reading of China-made low-quality machinesbeing used by retailers all over the country. The mobile operators present at the event denied the machines were faulty. We are conducting about 1-2 million transactions per day.

    On account of a heavy load, the machines stop working and need repair.

    We have procured the best possible machines, said a top official of the telecom operator.

    A large number of media persons and top leaders of all five cellular companies of the country Mobilink, Telenor, Zong, Ufone and Warid attended the meeting.

  • 30 year bans for mobile phone firm bosses THREE former bosses of a Cheshire telecoms company which went out of business owing creditors more than 30m, have been banned from being company directors for over 30 years. The disqualification of James Elphinstone Reed ,45, of Tarporley, Neil Arthur Pursell, 51, of Stoke-on-Trent and Adrian John Sumnall, 45 of Market Drayton, Shropshire, relates to their conduct as directors of Congleton-based Ace Telecom Trading Limited. An investigation by the Insolvency Service found the company was involved in deals traced back to fraudulent tax losses of over 13m. The trio have all made disqualification undertakings to the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) not to promote, manage, or be a director of a limited company until 2026. The undertakings given by Mr Pursell and Mr Sumnall followed court proceedings commenced by the Official Receiver. ATT, which was registered to an address in Coventry but had its main trading operation Lawton Street, Congleton, was a wholesaler of mobile telephones and other electronic goods. It was wound-up by the Court in July 2013 owing more than 18m to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and with an estimated total deficiency to creditors of 32m. In giving the undertakings, Pursell, Sumnall and Reed did not dispute that they caused or allowed ATT to participate in transactions which were connected to the fraudulent evasion of VAT, which they either knew or should have known about, and that ATT wrongfully claimed VAT from HMRC totalling almost 14m. Pursell and Sumnall were also directors of Newcastle-under-Lyme-based Winnington Networks which was placed in to provisional liquidation on the application of HMRC in March 2014. The Court was satisfied that Winnington was involved in fictitious trading connected to a complex VAT fraud. The business was subsequently wound up with tax debts of approximately 6m. Ken Beasley, Official Receiver at the Insolvency Service s public interest unit, said: "The directors of Ace Telecom Trading Limited were well aware of the risks of VAT fraud but nonetheless the company entered into transactions linked to the fraudulent evasion of VAT and wrongfully reclaimed VAT input tax of almost 14m. "VAT fraud represents a pernicious attack on the public finances and the periods of disqualification reflect the serious view taken of the conduct of the directors in this case."

  • 3: Mobile phone operator plans to pipe music free into homes for older people Would residents in Britain s care homes benefit from a daily dose of Kanye West? A mobile phone company intends to find out, by piping music free into homes for older people, an initiative designed to have a therapeutic effect. Studies have shown that listening to music and taking part in communal singing sessions often have beneficial effects on older people. But the corridors and rooms at many care homes are silent, depriving residents of the stimulating environment required to keep their brains exercised. Tores Theorell, professor emeritus at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, aims to liven things up. He is working with the mobile operator 3 to stream free music to 100 care homes across Sweden. The scheme, which provides elderly people with tablets, loudspeakers, streaming software and unlimited internet data, will be extended to the UK, the phone operator said. Professor Theorell, an expert in general medicine, said: The human brain is like a muscle: it needs constant activity and training. If we don t use our brain, perhaps by just lying in bed, it starts to deteriorate. To listen to music is a concentrated way of focusing on what is happening, and is therefore a form of brain exercise. Music can help thwart dementia and can make people feel both more spirited and happier. Health news in pictures In a way, said Professor Theorell, music can act almost like a lover . For older people living on their own it acts as a surrogate friend . Singing together in a choir helps make people feel part of society. It s not so easy for older people to get access to good music, so they need a large assortment to select from. Professor Theorell believes older residents are more likely to choose classical music or swing. Eighties pop star David Van Day, formerly of Dollar, recently undertook a tour of English old people s homes. He believes more pop singers seeking a regular gig will choose to perform on the care home circuit . So far, 100 state and privately run care homes in Sweden have signed up for the free trial. Residents at a home in Liseberg, the first to be equipped, have posted a YouTube clip showing positive reactions. Nicholas Hogberg, CEO of 3 in Sweden, said: The response to the project in Sweden has been really positive and, because of this, we are hoping that other countries will replicate the idea. It s clear that the group of people we re hoping to help are not used to being on the receiving end of these types of initiatives, and that silence in old people s homes is very much a universal problem. Mr Hogberg, who hopes Abba and Sweden s latest hitmaker DJ Avicii will make the gerontal playlists, added: We saw that in many old people s homes in Sweden, music and entertainment were not being prioritised. This wasn t because the staff didn t care, but rather because they lacked the time or resources. This project is much more than an attempt to acquire more customers. It is a socially responsible initiative that, if successful, hopefully will trigger other companies and organisations across the world to provide free music speakers, tablets, streaming software and internet data to local elderly communities and homes. It is simply about bringing music, and the emotions that accompany it, to often silent places. Rolling stone is castaway Being in the Rolling Stones saved Keith Richards from taking his own life after he learned that his young son had died, the veteran guitarist has revealed. Richards, 71, was on tour in France in June 1976, when he was informed that his 10-week-old son Tala had suffered cot death. It was such a shock at the time, especially as I m getting a phone call in Paris and this happened in Geneva and I thought I m going to go mad unless I do this show tonight, he says on Radio 4 s Desert Island Discs. Maybe it was a sense of self-preservation .... It was a rough, rough thing. And I had a feeling ... I must go on stage now and I ll worry and grieve and think about all this after the show. Because if I didn t go on the stage I d have probably shot myself. Keith Richards: I ve never been worried about what s seemly (AP) The guitarist also explains his attitude to drugs. I think I really should say that there is really no correlation between drugs and music and how you perform it, but this is a lie. Some people can handle things and other people can t. If the drugs become more important than the music, then you ve lost the battle. I ve never felt that it did anything to my creativity. It was something that I had to stop, because I realised that there are experiments that go on too long. In his case, the experiment with hard drugs lasted for decades. He stopped taking heroin in 1978, but continued to use cocaine for another 18 years. He still smokes cannabis. The seeds of his rebellious streak were sown at school. Richards was a treble in the choir at Dartford Technical High School in Kent, and had sung for the Queen. But after his voice broke, he ended up being put back a year. The school said, Oh you ve got to go down a year because you haven t done your chemistry ... There was no fairness here suddenly you re 13 and you re down with the 12-year-olds ... so that s when it started to ferment. During the interview, in which his growling voice is punctuated with hoarse chuckles, the veteran rock star describes himself as indestructible . Commenting on past health scares, he quips: If you can go through all of that, what more can they throw at me or what more can I throw at myself? Just one song from the 1960s makes it on to his desert island list Are You Lonely for Me Baby? by Freddie Scott. His other choices ranged from Vivaldi s The Four Seasons to Extra Classic by Gregory Isaacs, one of the best songwriters to have come out of Jamaica. His luxury is a machete. Richards admits: I watch other people rebel now, really, and describes his rebellious reputation as a ball and chain . He adds: That s one part of me, and a lot of that s in the past. Asked if rock n roll is seemly for people his age, he retorts: I ve never been worried about seemly. I m here and I rock and roll. Now he s more mature. I m growing up or rather evolving. I suppose with grandchildren it s when you suddenly realise that you re in for a longer haul. As for why The Rolling Stones keep going, he says: We still think we re getting better .... There s promise of more. Who s going to jump off a moving bus? Jonathan Owen

Formerly on March 9, the company unveiled the all-new MacBook , a new line of notebooks reinvented in every way to deliver the thinnest and lightest Macs ever.

    Every component of the new MacBook has been meticulously redesigned to create a Mac that weighs just two pounds and is 13.1 mm thin. The new MacBook features a stunning 12-inch Retina display that is the thinnest ever on a Mac, an Apple-designed full-size keyboard which is dramatically thinner and highly responsive, the all-new Force Touch trackpad that brings a new dimension of interactivity to the Mac, an incredibly compact USB-C port for data transfer, video out and charging in a single connector, and a new battery design that maximizes every millimeter of space to deliver all-day battery life. And, for the first time, MacBook is accessible in three gorgeous aluminum finishes gold, silver and space gray.

    Measuring just 13.1 mm at its thickest point, the new MacBook design is an amazing 24 percent thinner than the 11-inch MacBook Air . With a new precision-milled unibody enclosure featuring integrated Wi-Fi antennas and a top case with polished stainless steel Apple logo, MacBook is accessible in three elegant finishes gold, silver and space gray and is the first MacBook with an all-metal enclosure. A comfortable keyboard is essential to the Mac experience and the new MacBook is designed around an all-new full-size keyboard.

    To fit the full-size keyboard into the amazingly thin MacBook meant completely re-engineering how a notebook keyboard works. The new keyboard is 34 percent thinner and uses an Apple-designed butterfly mechanism that is an amazing 40 percent thinner than a traditional keyboard scissor mechanism yet four times more stable, providing greater precision no matter where your finger strikes the key. New stainless steel dome switches located beneath each key deliver a crisp and responsive feel when typing, and every key on the new keyboard is individually backlit with its own single LED to deliver precisely calibrated, uniform brightness behind each keycap.

    The perfect match to a full-size keyboard is a 12-inch display, and the new MacBook features a stunning 12-inch Retina display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Measuring just 0.88 mm thin, the Retina display on the new MacBook is the thinnest display ever on a Mac. With a larger aperture for each pixel, the new Retina display is also extremely efficient and uses 30 percent less energy than existing Mac notebook Retina displays, while delivering the same level of brightness.

    And with a resolution of 2304 x 1440, text, photos and movies come to life with astounding clarity. MacBook also features the all-new Force Touch trackpad that brings a new dimension of interactivity to the Mac. The new trackpad features built-in force sensors that allow you to click anywhere and haptic feedback that provides a responsive and uniform feel.

    You can even customize the feel of the trackpad by changing the amount of pressure needed to register each click. The Force Touch trackpad also enables a new gesture called Force Click, a click followed by a deeper press, for tasks like pulling up the definition of a word, quickly seeing a map or glancing at a preview of a file.

  • 4 senior Samsung India execs quitKOLKATA | NEW DELHI: The heads of four divisions and functions at Samsung India have quit over the past month as the country's largest consumer electronics and cellphone maker reorganizes itself under new president HyunChil Hong. Hong, who replaced the company's long-serving CEO BD Park four months ago with a clear mandate to cut flab and accelerate growth, is merging marketing functions such as those related to product advertising and below-the-line marketing activities with the sales team to ensure better coordination. A majority of the employees in the corporate marketing team will get aligned with the product sales team while some will continue in their existing role to handle corporate brand and media buying.

    The cellphone maker also plans to merge its tablet sales team and mobile phone application and content development business with its smartphone business, which may lead to some more exits in the days to come, said industry executives. Jagbir Singh, VP of the networks business, is likely to move to Reliance Jio. Incidentally, Samsung is erecting more than 1 lakh base stations for Reliance Jio's upcoming 4G services.

    An email sent to Reliance Jio on the appointment of Singh did not elicit any response by press time. Tarun Malik, director and head of digital content, cloud and media solution centre, which builds applications and develops content for Samsung's smartphones and smart televisions, has resigned. Sachin Thapar, director for the tablets business, quit three weeks ago and joined an American smartphone startup InFocus Mobiles as its India head.

    Sandeep Bhushan, who was director, go-to-market strategy, of the mobile phone business, has also resigned. A Samsung India spokesperson said the company had built a solid foundation in the Indian market because of an exemplary talent pool. "In 20 years, we have grown into a family of 45,000 employees, of which over 22,000 are direct employees. During this journey, as is with many other growing companies, some employees have moved on to take up opportunities elsewhere or pursue their own interests," the spokesperson said.

    The Samsung India spokesperson added that there has been no major restructuring of the business in India. Departures prompted by rejigs But industry executives said the departures were prompted by the reorganization. While some have left because their roles were substantially reduced, others were unhappy with the organizational changes.

    A senior industry executive, who didn't want to be named, said Hong had taken charge of Indian operations at a critical time with Samsung's smartphone business under pressure globally and revenue growth in India in 2014-15 having slowed by more than half over the previous fiscal. Samsung India sales grew 45% to Rs 40,392 crore in 2013-14. Most of Hong's initiatives are centred around the company's smartphone business, which accounts for almost 70% of revenues. "Hong is re-organizing the Indian operations and tough calls are being taken.

    He is a thorough sales professional. There is a lot of emphasis on cutting costs and driving profit," the executive said. The chief executive of a leading electronics retailer said some of the changes introduced by Hong are becoming evident.

    The recent launch of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge was more subdued than previous debuts. "The hype is lower than what Samsung had done with Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5, even though these two upcoming models are vital to its success," he said. Samsung remains the market leader in the Indian smartphone segment, according to top market researcher IDC, but its lead in the October-December period has shrunk from the year ago. The South Korean company, however, contests this and says its share by value is four times the No.

    2 and more than double by volume. Hong Kong-based Counterpoint Research's Senior Analyst Tarun Pathak said Samsung has lost more market share in the mid-level price band of $100-200 compared with any other range due to the Chinese brands. "This is the real challenge as they have to recover and get back to the volumes they were doing earlier," he said.

  • 4 Sony apps that you can use on non-Xperia smartphones and tabletsAs you may already know, Sony Mobile isn't just a hardware manufacturer. The company is also a software developer, and, while most of its software is made for its own products, there are also some Sony apps that work on non-Xperia devices. More exactly, we're talking here about Sony-made applications that can be used on most Android smartphones and tablets.

    There are some of them that are really worth your attention, so we're presenting them in this article (download links included). All four Sony apps listed below are free, with only one of them offering in-app purchases. Go ahead and check them out, and let us know if you like any of them, okay?

    4 Sony apps that work on non-Sony phones and tablets 4 Sony apps that work on non-Sony phones and tablets 1. Audio Recorder This Sony app has a clean interface, and will (obviously) let you record audio, as well as edit audio (WAV) files. You can choose to record stereo or mono, at different quality - from basic to superior.

    Sony's Audio Recorder is compatible with devices running Android 4.1 or later. If you want to, for higher sound quality, you can pair your device with an external Sony Stereo Microphone STM10, or a Digital Noise Cancelling Headset MDR-NC31EM. Download 1 (free).

    2. [email protected] Developed in collaboration with other companies (including Nvidia and ATI) and a group of Stanford University scientists, [email protected] is what we'd call a noble application. It lets you contribute to the search for cures for various diseases, including Alzheimer's and cancer.

    How does it do that? Well, if you allow it, it relies on the processing power of your device (when it's not in use) to carry out millions and millions of calculations that help scientists study protein folding. In a way, all the devices using this app are working together as a supercomputer.

    [email protected] should be able to run on most ARM-based phones and tablets running Android 4.4 KitKat or later. Download 2 (free).

    3. Sketch Sony's Sketch app lets you discover your creative side by allowing you to draw sketches from scratch, or edit and enhance already existing images.

    The application features various brushes, pencils, markers, also including layers, a color picker, and even pre-loaded stickers. You can publish your creations online, and invite friends to collaborate. Sketch is compatible with devices running Android 4.2 or later.

    Download 3 (free, with in-app purchases).

    4. TrackID Once a Sony-exclusive application, TrackID is a music recognition application that rivals Shazam. Available in over 60 languages, TrackID has a pretty cool interface, and can identify songs in mere seconds, also letting you watch music videos or read artist biographies.

    TrackID can be connected to Spotify, so you can add songs to your Spotify playlist (where available). If you're not connected to the Internet, TrackID remembers the songs that you want to identify, and will search for them when a connection is available. Download 4 (free).

  • 40% Female Staff and a Female Founder – Antaeus' Journey of Inclusiveness Mumbai, Maharashtra -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/05/2015 -- According to the Worldbank, the latest estimate of women to men in the workforce was estimated at 34% for 2013 in India (as compared to 91% in Iceland and 20% in Afghanistan, with the rest of the world falling between these two extremes). Within this number, certain industries lend themselves to a more equitable gender distribution (nursing, teaching etc) rather than others (military, construction etc). The chauffeur-driven car rental industry is relatively new and unstructured in India and is a male-dominated industry due to the preponderance of male chauffeurs and the people who deal with them.

    Into this male dominated world, Antaeus Rent A Car 1 was born in 1996 founded by a woman entrepreneur. Today, Antaeus employs more than 40% female staff in Accounts, Administration and Sales. The company's founder, Mrs Uma Bahl, had a long corporate career in India and the Middle East, in Administration, Airlines, Human Resources and Travel & Tourism.

    The decision to found Antaeus was taken after identifying a niche in the ground transportation market. Below are excerpts from an interview with Mrs Bahl. Q.

    Could you tell us why you started Antaeus? A. I had returned to India in 1993 after a long stint in the Middle East and was looking for opportunities in the Travel and Tourism sector.

    I worked with Modiluft, SITA Travels and finally Kuoni India before deciding to branch out for myself in 1996. I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur and based on my research, there seemed to be a lack in the ground transportation market at that time; hence Antaeus was born. We originally started working out of a small office in Saki Naka, Mumbai, with 2 employees and 2 cars.

    Q. Were you ever daunted by the fact that this was a male-dominated industry? A.

    Honestly, it wasn't even something I considered. It was just a business that I wanted to get into and did. Only much later did people start commenting on how few women there were in this field.

    All I can say about that is that there are very few recognised women entrepreneurs in India in general and we need more. Q. What were some of the challenges you faced as a start-up?

    A. That is another new term "start-up"! When we started the business, our main challenges were to find and train quality drivers, acquire cars and find business, which were pretty much normal challenges.

    Then another thing that was a challenge then but not now was communications. There were no mobile phones at that time so drivers had to check in from time to time to let us know where they were! Q.

    What were some of the innovations Antaeus launched? A. To address the communications challenge, we pioneered pagers for drivers this was a new concept that quickly caught on with other companies in the sector until it became an industry standard.

    At that time also, there were no Pan-India service providers and Antaeus was one of the first to offer services outside of our home city, Mumbai. Today, we offer services in over 90 cities across India. Q.

    What would you consider as your biggest strength? A. Our biggest strength is definitely the team.

    We have many employees who have been with us over 14 years and there is tremendous loyalty both ways. Not counting drivers, we have almost 50% of our employees being female. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of gender, religion or other factors.

    Q. What do you consider will be the future milestones for the company in the next 5 years? A.

    That's a great question. Firstly, we are working on strengthening our web positioning. Our website was only launched last year and since then has been showing excellent growth in terms of visitor numbers so we expect web bookings to grow to 50% of our business in the next 5 years.

    Secondly, we want to maximise opportunities in our existing business by attracting new clients, opening new offices (in Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad) and investing in Sales and Marketing operations in all these cities. Thirdly, in revenue terms, we intend to triple our revenue in the next 5 years. Finally, in people terms, we want to grow our non-driver employee strength to have at least 60% female employees.

    About Antaeus Rent A Car Pvt Ltd Antaeus Rent A Car Pvt Ltd has been in operation since 1996 and is a pan India provider of quality chauffeur driven car rental services 2 to corporate customers for short term and long term requirements. Since its inception, the company has dealt with blue-chip Indian and foreign customers with its presence in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru as well as through a network of affiliates across the country. Services include chauffeur-driven luxury cars on rent for Local Intra-city usage, Airport Transfers and Out-station or Inter-City trips between two or more cities.

    The company also provides coach rentals for weddings and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Events). Antaeus serves over 300 corporate entities in India and abroad for their car rental services in India. Their Vision is to be recognised as a customer-centric, employee-oriented and profitable company in the chauffeur-driven, car-rental business for corporate customers in India.

  • 4G speeds are half as fast promised Ofcom says, and will get worse Study by Ofcom says 4G speeds in the UK are slower than promised Mobile phone companies boasted 4G would be 5x faster than 3G But actual figure is actually only 2.5x faster - 14.7 megabits per second Out of the networks, EE was fastest, followed by Vodafone, O2 and Three | 47 View comments The new 4G mobile phone services in the UK are not as super-fast as the industry promised - and could get worse. The mobile phone companies boasted that 4G services would be five times faster than the existing 3G networks when they launched in the autumn of 2012. However, a new official study puts the real figure at an average of 2.5 times faster - 14.7 megabits per second compared to 5.9Mbit/s per second on the 3G service that most people use.

    A study by Ofcom says 4G speeds in the UK are slower than promised. Mobile phone companies boasted 4G would be five times faster than 3G. But the actual figure is actually only 2.5 times faster - 14.7 megabits per second.

    Shown is an HTC One XL smartphone at a news conference in Zurich launching 4G in 2012 At the same time, the evidence suggests that 4G services are likely to slow down as more people connect to them.

    4G technology is being promoted by the big mobile networks on the basis it offers high speed internet access and smooth video streaming without annoying buffering. More than 10 million people have been won over by the promises and have signed two year contracts costing an average of 20 ($30) a month. The 4G speed data comes from the telecoms regulator, Ofcom, which supports the technology and insists the figures show a meaningful and significant benefit over the 3G services.

    Despite this, the figures make clear the step change has not been as remarkable as the major networks - EE, O2, Vodafone and Three - promised. Ofcom s research compares the speed and geographic coverage of the networks and puts EE, which is the subject of a 12.5 billion ($18.5 billion) takeover by BT, on top. EE s 4G network, which covers 81 per cent of homes and businesses, delivered the fastest average download speed of 18.6Mbit/s.

    This looks good when compared with its 3G service, which was a slow 4Mbit/s.

    4G AND 3G NETWORK SPEEDS Provider 4G* 3G* EE 18.6 4 Vodafone 16.4 6.6 O2 13.9 6.6 Three 8.5 5.4 *In megabits per second Second fastest was Vodafone with 16.4 for 4G versus 6.6 for 3G. O2 came next at 13.9 versus 6.6, followed by Three at a relatively slow 8.5 for 4G which was not very impressive against the 5.4 for 3G. Upload speeds are important when sharing content, such as pictures and videos to social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.

    EE was also fastest on this measure at 17.6Mbit/s, followed by O2 on 13.2, Vodafone on 13.1 and Three with 9.4. The Three network was the fastest to load a web page at 0.63 seconds, compared to 0.71 for O2, 0.76 for Vodafone and 0.77 for EE. There is good evidence to believe the speeds offered by 4G are slowing down.

    When 4G services launched at the end of 2012, the average download speed was up at around 19 Mbit/s, however the new research suggests an average of 14.7 and other studies put it as low as 10. This has happened because more people are using the service, effectively causing jams on the airwaves. The only way this can be countered is if the networks spend millions upgrading masts and installing new ones.

    Ofcom s research compares the speed and geographic coverage of the networks and puts EE, which is the subject of a 12.5 billion ($18.5 billion) takeover by BT, on top. EE s 4G network, which covers 81 per cent of homes and businesses, delivered the fastest average download speed of 18.6Mbit/s The Ofcom figures are based on 120,000 smartphone tests in five sample towns and cities - Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Newcastle and Poole/Bournemouth - between October and December. Its study found that download speeds in Edinburgh fell by 12.5 per cent between the summer and end of last year.

    The time to call up a web page improved marginally from 0.8 seconds to 0.72. Ofcom admitted: As more people are taking 4G services from the mobile operators, this is likely to affect the average speeds being received. The speeds for London were unchanged over the same period, while there was no data for the other areas.

    Claudio Pollack, Ofcom s Consumer Director, said the study is designed to boost competition by helping consumers decide which mobile networks are offer the best service.

    He said: People are increasingly connected, communicating and sharing content on their mobiles when out and about.

    4G is delivering a significantly enhanced mobile experience and, as these services roll out across the UK, our research will support consumers when choosing the right mobile package for their needs.

  • 4K Netflix comes to BT TV Netflix 1 is one of the biggest movie streaming services on the planet. It may not have the biggest or most up-to-date library of content you've ever seen, but when it's constantly being updated with reams of new TV shows and blockbuster films, you're sure to find something you'll want to watch. Here we've rounded up everything you need to know about Netflix, whether you're an occasional subscriber, a brand-new customer, or a long-term film buff, including the latest Netflix news to how much it costs and where you can start your weekend viewing binge. BT TV is first to offer 4K Netflix BT has announced that it will become the first TV service in the UK to offer 4K Netflix. Using their new Ultra HD YouView+ 2 boxes, BT TV customers will be able to watch all of Netflix's biggest shows in Ultra HD, including House of Cards, Narcos, Marvel's Jessica Jones and Better Call Saul. They'll still need to be on Netflix's Ultra HD plan, of course, which currently costs 8.99 a month, but it now makes BT one of the best destinations for native 4K content. For added convenience, BT will also add new Ultra HD Netflix subscriptions to a customer's current bill, allowing them to pay for their BT TV, Infinity Broadband and Netflix subscription all in a single bill. Likewise, streaming Netflix through their Ultra HD YouView+ box won't eat into their monthly download allowance. All you need is a compatible Ultra HD or 4K TV and to sign up for BT TV's Total Entertainment package for 15, and new customers will then receive a YouView+ Ultra HD set-top box. Ultra HD and 4K: The definitive guide and what you can watch 3 Delia Bushell, managing director of BT TV & BT Sport said: This is bringing our BT TV customers the best drama series married with the highest quality viewing experience now available. Our Ultra HD package will enhance the experience and provide unmissable content at great value, including must-see new Netflix shows like Narcos, and original series like Orange Is The New Black available, alongside live action from the Barclays Premier League and UEFA Champions League and Europa League. We re delighted to be offering our customers a wide range of incredible Ultra HD content with the convenience of a single bill. Better quality, lower bitrates - Netflix unveils new encoding recipe Netflix has unveiled plans to re-encode its entire catalogue of films and TV shows in an attempt to cut down on the amount of bandwidth it uses, delivering an identical, if not improved viewing experience without hogging a country's national bandwidth allowance. It aims to achieve this by using what it calls a brand-new "recipe". At the moment, everything you watch has been pre-encoded to run at various bitrates depending on your internet connection speed and available bandwidth. In other words, the Netflix client on your device automatically selects the best encode recipe to maximise video quality while minimising playback interruptions such as buffering and loading times. According to Netflix, this isn't as easy as it sounds. "For example, assuming a 1 Mbps bandwidth, should we stream H.264/AVC at 480p, 720p or 1080p?" Netflix said on its blog 4 . "With 480p, 1 Mbps will likely not exhibit encoding artefacts such blocking or ringing, but if the member is watching on an HD device, the up-sampled video will not be sharp. On the other hand, if we encode at 1080p we send a higher resolution video, but the bitrate may be too low such that most scenes will contain annoying encoding artefacts." As a result, this one-size-fits-all approach isn't quite as efficient as it could be, so Netflix has decided to re-encode its catalogue using a brand-new per-title bit rate ladder recipe. For instance, animated content doesn't need to run at a high bit rate in order to look good. In an episode of Bojack Horseman, for instance, Netflix says that it currently uses a 1,750 kbps bit rate for its 480p encode. With the per-title recipe, however, it will be able to deliver 1080p video at 1,540 kbps, delivering crisper, sharper visuals at a higher resolution without using as much bandwidth. ^ On the right you'll see Netflix's current 1,750kbps stream of Bojack Horseman, while the left shot is the new, crisper 1,540kbps stream Shows with "average complexity" such as Orange is the New Black will also benefit from the new bit rate ladder according to Netflix, as the new per-title encoding can assign 4,640 kbps for the highest quality 1080p encode, delivering a bit rate saving of 20% compared to the current 5,800 kbps bit rate using Netflix's fixed bit rate ladder. This has a number of advantages, as it means users don't need to use as much data when streaming videos over their mobile network, and it will also allow Netflix to bring its service to more countries which don't have as much bandwidth to play with or such stable internet connections. Unfortunately, the new recipe doesn't apply to 4K content, but hopefully it will only be a matter of time before we start seeing Ultra HD videos that don't completely cripple your home internet. Everything you need to know about Netflix How much does it cost? You can try Netflix free for one month, but you'll then need to pay 5.99 per month for streaming content in standard definition to one device, 7.49 a month for streaming to two devices simultaneously in HD, or 8.99 a month for streaming to four devices simultaneously in both HD and Ultra HD if you want to continue using the service. You can cancel your subscription at any time, though, without worrying about any kind of charge or cancellation fee, and join up again when it's convenient. Where can I watch Netflix? You can watch Netflix on all Android and iOS devices, as well as your PC or laptop, games console (including the PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One), Blu-ray player, smart TV, media streaming devices or set-top box. You'll find a full list of compatible Netflix devices here 5 , but as long as your smart TV is made by LG, Panasonic, Philips, Sony, Sharp, Samsung or Toshiba, then you should be covered. Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku and Google's Nexus Player also support Netflix, and set-top boxes from BT, Philips, Sony, TalkTalk, Virgin Media and YouView are also likely to have a built-in app. As for Blu-ray players, current models from LG, Panasonic, Philips, Sony, Samsung and Toshiba will also have Netflix built-in. How to watch American Netflix using a Virtual Private Network 6 How fast does my internet need to be? Netflix requires a minimum broadband connection speed of 0.5 megabits per second, but faster internet connections will improve the quality of your video. 3.0 Mbit/s is recommended for SD quality content, 5.0 Mbit/s is recommended for HD quality, and a massive 25 Mbit/s is recommended for Ultra HD. Provided you sign up for Netflix's HD subscription plan, you'll need to make sure your video quality is set to High in your account's Playback Settings.

While these additions are nice, they are bound to complicate things for those of you that don t keep tabs on the smartphone industry. If you walk into a store in April, you re going to be looking at an absurd number of phones and today, we want to help you nail down those options so that your decision isn t intimidating.

    Every month we are bombarded with questions from consumers, many of whom want to know about the best Android phones money can buy.

    Advertisement Samsung Galaxy S6 1 / 5 There was a lot of pressure on Samsung (internal and external) to deliver a solid flagship following its subpar offerings in 2014 and 2013. And deliver it did. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is, without a doubt, one of the best Android smartphones that you can buy at the moment 4 .

    It's not perfect, smartphones rarely are, but if you're in the hunt for a new Android device, you must take a look at the Galaxy S6 before making your final move. Samsung's brand new Galaxy S6 is loaded with features including a new design language that features glass and metal, a gorgeous Quad HD display that measures 5.1-inches, an efficient Exynos 7 octa-core processor that helps deliver solid battery life, a 16MP camera with OIS, and a toned down version of TouchWiz that's over Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. Advertisement The Galaxy S6 starts at $199.99, fairly expensive for a flagship Android, but for most of you, it will be worth every penny.

    Be sure to take a look at it before you buy in April.

    Google's Nexus 6 is a massive smartphone which means that it won't be for everyone but it's worth a look if you want Android and you're not into the various user interfaces that Android manufacturers put on top of the operating system. The Nexus 6 is, in our opinion, one of the best Android smartphones money can buy. Advertisement Take a look at it before you buy a new AT&T phone in the month of April.

  • 5 Best Phones March, 2015 With a Samsung Galaxy S6 release date 1 coming in April and an HTC One M9 release date confirmed for April 10th 2 , right now is a horrible time to buy a new smartphone. That said, we realize that many of you don t have the luxury of waiting a few weeks and that s why we ve put together a list of devices we think represent the five best phones you can buy right now. Earlier this month, HTC and Samsung both took the stage at Mobile World Congress to announce their 2015 flagships.

    HTC announced an HTC One M9 to replace its HTC One M8 while Samsung debuted a Galaxy S6 to replace its Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S6 actually comes in two different formats, a regular Galaxy S6 and a curved Galaxy S6 Edge. These two devices should be two of the best from 2015 and that s why we recommend waiting, if you can.

    We realize that some people can t wait a couple of weeks for April to arrive which is why we ve put together a list of the best phones you can buy this month. We ve kept the list small because these are the five phones that we think you absolutely must cross off your list before buying a new device in March.

    No, the iPhone 6s release is probably still several months away at least which means that the iPhone 6 will remain in its place as one of the top phones on the market. Apple's 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is one of the best phones money can buy. The device features an excellent feature set that doesn't come with many weaknesses.

    Its design is capable, its camera is one of the best on the market, and it receives years of software support from Apple. It's a wise investment for those that aren't turned off by the closed iOS operating system. The flagship iPhone 6 is still on the expensive side, $199.99 and up, though we've started to see some iPhone 6 deals emerge in the months after its release.

    Keep an eye out for iPhone 6 deals as March comes to a close.

    You may be able to knock a bit off its expensive price tag.
