The popularity has made Apple the third mobile phone maker in the world, based on the analysis of international data corporation. We know that the world has infected with the fever of iPhone. In most of the countries, iPhone is the most popular mobile phone. Now Apple has expanded its business worldwide. In China, Apple increased two flagship Apple Stores in Beijing and which makes its china sales even higher.
Apple rises from the fifth place to the third place because the sales of iPhone in the last quarter of 2011 broke the record. Nokia remains the first in the market, shipping 113 million phones in the final Q of year and shares a mobile phone market of 27%. Samsung follows it with a share of 22% market share. Apple sold a number of 37million cell phones and has the market share of 8.7%. LG of South Korea and ZTE of China ranks fourth and fifth in the market. ZTE of China dose well in the market, I think. It is the only Chinese phone company on the list of top 5. The china phone mainly sells good in the low-end market.
In the list of top 5 phone makers in the mobile market, we have not seen HTC of Taiwan which is now the third hottest smart phone maker worldwide, follows Apple and Samsung. I have to say, there are so many people in the world, not everyone would like to use smart phones. A huge number of phones are sold in the low-end market. In China, huge quantities of electronic factories are making cell phones without brands. They are purchased by peasant workers in China and also sell to people of undeveloped countries, like India and Africa. They also make some cheap android phones and sell them online, mostly to the US and Australia. They also provide Free Shipping service so that consumers are more willing to buy one.
However, the technology and society are processing, and maybe one day, people worldwide will finally choose smart phones. They give people a better experience and easy to use. Maybe when that day comes, the list of top 5 in the mobile market will change again, some mobile phone makers we are not familiar with may jump to the front, who knows? This is a global information age.
It seems that the Americans are doomed to have a holiday with the bad weather, the rain and snow weather somehow makes them feel chill and bad. Due to that reason, more people would rather choose to buy things they need on the internet instead of going out to the markets or stores which makes the online shops feel heavily burdened, even the electronic retail giant. Best Buy.com can not afford.
It is reported that Best Buy has canceled some of the online orders that were placed in November and or December. However, it has apologized to the customers whose orders have been cancelled.
Although it has apologized to the customers, they are still complaining about the cancellation on Best Buy online forum. We can totally understand the mood of the customers, when you are expecting something, say a gift, while due to some man-made reasons, the things you are expecting are gone or will not come to you. Everyone will feel frustrated. Some parents complained that the cancellations ruined the kids’ Christmas.
The sales of online and offline are totally the opposite, bad weather blocked the will of people wanting to go out for shopping, while most of the online sales provide Free Shipping service which is attractive for the consumers. Best Buy wants to catch up with the pace of online retail giant Amazon.com, it seems impossible after this thing. We have not heard about the case of cancellation of Amazon.com. It seems that it needs to upgrade their online service and makes them more trustful and reliable for the consumers.
You who want to buy electronic products on Best Buy.com now have to reconsider your choice, for we have not idea of which hot products are now in shortage. The officer of Best Buy said the Blackberry Playbooks are sold out and need to stock new ones. We can think about the situation of iPhone and iPad and the hottest electronic products now, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note and Droid RAZR of Motorola. Actually Best Buy is just selling the electronic goods in a Drop Shipping way which means that it buys products from the factories that are authorized by the manufactures and the sell the products to the customers, while it does not have a product of its own. However, they do succeed in the drop ship way of operating the company. They make big success in short years.
Of course, some other kinds of products of online stores are also hot on the black Friday. I have heard some people buy Christmas trees, new boots and new clothes for the children or themselves from the internet. I have to give a suggestion to the people who want to buy those stuff online that you must make it correct of your size before giving an order.
From some perspective, the bad weather also brought something positive, we have a fluent traffic and it seems that it is not that crowded when you go out shopping and you do not have to complain that much for standing in line for that long time. The online shopping has shared some responsibility of the stores and shops.
If you have ever got a facebook account, you must have heard some names of games on facebook, and you may have played some of them. So have you ever heared City Ville, Farm ville, Zynga Poker, Words with Friends. I am sure most of you have ever seen it or played it on facebook, so do you know what company develop those games--Zynga, the gaming company that just kicked off in Nasdaq a day ago.
Different with the opening in Nasdaq’s tradition, CEO of Zynga and Nasdaq chief rang the opening bell in Texas, the base of Zynga. However, the performance of Zynga in the stock market is not as well as in facebook. Right after its IPO, the stock price fell from 11$ to 9.5$. Many investors are worrying about the business mode of Zynga and doubt whether it is possible and reliable.
However, many of the internet companies are facing troubles in the stock market, investors are now not confident in this field. Mostly they would rather invest on smart phone and tablet pc. Smart phone include iphone and android phone, while tablet pc include the iPad2 and android tablet, investors of technology seem to fancy these, Apple’s stock price is now amazingly high and some companies that make android phones and tablets also perform quite well in the stock market.
However, chief of Zynga, Mark Pincus is still confident in its own company’s performance in the long term. As time goes on, they are confident that they can make themselves better and bring confidence to those investors. However, my point is that, since those investors can invest their money into smart phone market, they can also consider about Zynga. As we all know, Zynga firstly released its games on facebook, the community website and have quantities of uses. They do have fun with the games.
And now Zynga is starting to set foot in the smart phone market and tablet market, which are the hottest products in the electronic market. And I am sure they will gain a lot of supporters on those two devices. At that time, you can play Zynga games anywhere, on the computer, tablet pcs, and smart phones, also some people may buyChina Copy phones and tablet pcs, and of course, Zynga games are also available on them, for they are also equipped with android OS. So just imagine it, when people are on a bus, they can spare their time on playing Zynga games, City Ville is a very excellent online community game where you can play the games with your friends and you can invite friends on your facebook to play together with you. Or on a metro, you can log onto facebook account on you phone and play Words with Friends with people all around the world. Or you just do not want to get up and open your computer to play Zynga games and can just stay in bed playing on you smart phone and tablet pc. It will definitely make you satisfied and happy.
At the same time, Zynga has purchase many other game companies that make cell phone games and online community games and make itself now the biggest company in the field. As for the business mode the investors are mainly concerned about, as long as its games are worth being played, they are just ok. So I am still quite confident in Zynga’s performance in the stock market in the long term.
Since Ipad released into the electronic market, many electronics manufacturers have joined in the battle of fighting for the market share, such as, Samsung, HTC, Lenovo, Motorola and so on.
New tablet pc seems to come out every week which makes the choices of us optional, we can choose one we like based on our fancy and the habits.
Tablets are becoming the new battlefield of the electronics manufacturer. The Apple earned very much in 2010 for the Ipad. And then no matter what kind of companies, as long as they have some relationship with electronics, all devote themselves in the fighting of tablets battlefields the scene of which reminds me of the gold rush.Here I would like to introduce some tablets for you and wish this could be a suggestion of guide if you want to buy tablets.
As we know, the market is divided mainly by the android tablet and iOS pad. There seems to be no other systems for the tablets.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
The Samsung was the first to release the tablet to challenge Apple, undoubtedly, the quality and performance is excellent enough for its opponent is iPad. If it were not for its high price, it would sell more.Samsung gained certain success from following Apple, Apple released the iPhone series, Samsung released the Galaxy series, however, we have to admit, Samsung did great job for its products are competitive and with good quality.
After BlackBerry PlayBook released, I did not have a very good impression — mostly because of its own OS. However, I was impressed after operating it by myself. Playbook is a 7-inch tablet, which may be a little small— except for some minority who like the small screens. The hardware is great, you can operate the tablet easily with its own OS, and the performance is amazing. You can use this tablet for an excellent experience of browsing the web pages and flashes.
The Amazon tablet
The kindle fire of amazon is hot now. In fact, it is better enough to compete with Apple than any of the other tablet makers because of its resource of entertainment of e-books and videos, movies. Amazon has already had the Kindle e-book library and music and video stores based on web. This could already make it competitive enough and challenge for Ipad, at the same time, it is equipped with the android OS, as we know, there are as many apps as Apple store on android OS. And it has low price for only 199 dollars which makes it more competitive.
Apple iPad 2
Although there are many challengers toward iPad 2, it still remains the top of all the tablets. It is difficult for other tablet manufacturers to win Apple, it is where the tablets come out from. So why it is so hot, usability, long battery life, a lot of apps, and reasonable price. The iPad 2 update too much. It’s thinner and lighter, has a better performance processor and display.
Also the hot battle field also attracts many cheap tablet manufactures. They equip their tablets with the android OS and low set-up and sell them at very low prices. Anyway, the king of tablets is still Ipad, at least, in recent years, no one could surpass it.
It's a topic I've been wrestling with since the emergence of the HTC Evo 3D, the first 3D-capable smartphone. I came to the conclusion that it was largely a gimmick, or something that piques your interest but quickly fades away. For some, it's just a bit of headache-inducing flash.
Still, that hasn't stopped more companies from moving into the area. The latest two are media startup Cooliris and mobile advertising company Smaato, which recently said they were partnering to deliver 3D advertisements on mobile devices.
Fortunately, the two aren't exactly talking about images that seemingly pop out of your iPhone. Rather, the service enables the delivery of 3D-rendered images, allowing you to rotate, disassemble, and reassemble that picture in a mobile ad. Since they don't pop off the screen, the images don't need any special displays or glasses. The two plan to show off the technology later this month at the AppNation conference in San Francisco, where the ads will show up on iPhones and iPads.
Cooliris's business unit Adjitsu has a demo up showing off the ability to manipulate a fully rendered BMW. As you can see, it's pretty nifty.
"Rich Media is an important part for the substantial growth of mobile advertising and we see this as a great opportunity for our developers and publishers to maximize their revenue," Smaato CEO Ragnar Kruse said in a statement earlier this month.
Cooliris's Adjitsu will use Smaato, which already delivers mobile ads to a network of advertisers and devices, to expand its presence in Asia and Europe.
"Together we will enable consumers to re-experience brands, products and services like never before," Cooliris CEO Soujanya Bhumkar said.
Still, while it's cool enough technology, I still question how effective it will be.
When I tested the Evo 3D, I was eager to show off the phone's special camera and display to coworkers. They agreed it was cool, but their interest waned fast. I wonder if the same fleeting engagement would occur with Adjitsu's ads.
To be fair, Adjitsu's technology isn't the kind of gimmicky 3D that the Evo 3D, and later on the LG Thrill 4G, employs. The BMW example looks fairly practical if you're interested in buying a new car.
There's been a lot made out of mobile ads in general. Mobile adverting is why Google got into the mobile game with Android in the first place. It's also one of the primary business models driving the apps market.
But I sometimes wonder how effective these banner and display ads are. When playing games, browsing the mobile Web, or watching videos, I largely ignore the ads, or speed through them as quickly as possible.
Maybe 3D-rendered images may cause me to pause a bit. For now, I'm still not sold.
In 1898, Nokia was set up in Finland, in the 1990s, it became the world largest cell phone producer. For a long time, it has been the giant of cell phone industry, Motorola, Samsung are always pacing after it.
But now, things have changed, it is no longer the giant of the cell phone industry, as we know, it has quit from the stock market which may be beneficial for them and is a better choice for the fall. We have to admit that android OS and IOS is quite powerful and aggressive that a giant of cell phone for 100 years has fallen in less than 3 years. Now the cell phone industry is the divided by iphone and the android smart phones.
From the online shop, we can figure something out, search from taobao.com of the cell phone selling, you will find that android cell phones sell best on the online B2C website, before, many bulk Wholesale supplier sell China copy phones on the website with large quantities, but now, with the smart phones becoming popular, the China copy phones no longer rank first of the online shop.
For the sake of android OS, Motorola and Samsung have grown the sales of the Moto phones and Samsung phones have increased a lot in the last years. Many of them are sold on the website like taobao.com and amazon.com.
The suppliers have various ways of getting the phones although they are not the official suppliers of the cell phone company. Many of them get the cell phones of EU version or US version or HK version and root the cell phones with the China mainland system, and then sell them at very cheap price which may be lower for 1000 RMB than the price of a cell phone in the official authorization shops. And also there are many cell phones locked with a mobile supplier like AT&T, Verizon and T-mobile. And the suppliers can root these phones to make them becomeUnlocked Phones by which way Chinese buyers can use these phones in mainland China. So you have to admit that the Chinese are indeed great for doing things like this. They can think out many methods and ways to earn money from some security loopholes.
With the android phone becoming hot on the market, many China Electronics Wholesale are setting foot in this market, hoping to make some money, as the android OS is a open source system, so everyone can use it.
As I know, a lot of android smart phones are made in Guangdong of China brands, the producers sell them on the B2C website, taobao.com and some have their own website mainly toward the western customers the prices of which are quite lower and cheaper than the famous brands cell phones, as the Motorola, Samsung and HTC.
At the same time, many IT workers work on the android apps and IOS apps to make money, many of them gain success, the angry birds is a positive example. It has been downloaded a several billion times on IOS and android OS. Also there are many other examples, here I will not list any more.
We here feel sorry for the giant’s fall but at the same feel happy for the rise of new technology and innovation of the IOS and android OS.
Not long ago, the iphone 4s launched into the market, brought a wave of purchasing summit. Right after that, Samsung released their new flagship phone, the Galaxy Nexus. Of course, you have got to pay a lot for the new flagship phone, that means an f, If you choose to get one with a mobile servicer, that will be much cheaper.
The much-anticipated new Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first phone to feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – or ICS if you’re being very 'now' – the latest version of Google’s mobile OS. It also includes one of Samsung’s top of the range HD screens, a dual core processor and 1080p HD video recording – not too aspirational then.
Pick it up and it’s immediately clear that you’re in the company of a quality phone. It’s quite a handful at 136 x 68mm, but pleasingly slim at just 9mm. For the size, it’s also surprisingly light at 135g, due largely to the all-plastic casing. The 4.65in capacitive touch screen takes up most of the front and virtually disappears when the phone powers down, giving it a sheen of glossy black glass.
And what a screen it is. It’s a Super AMOLED HD number, with a 1280 x 720-pixel resolution, all crammed in at 316ppi. That’s 0.3in bigger than Samsung’s flagship Galaxy SII and a real advance on that phone’s 800 x 480 resolution too. With a beautifully wide viewing angle, it’s arguably the best display you’ll see on any mobile phone today.
Now, you have got many ways to buy electronics, online, to the shop or super market, or best buy and so on. But some way of purchasing does bring you a much cheaper price and optional choices.
Some China Electronics Wholesale online shop will provide you with a good price and high quality phone.
At the bottom of the screen is a touch sensitive panel with just two of the standard four Android controls (home and back) plus a multitasking button that shows all your currently running apps as thumbnails. The buttons disappear when the screen’s not in use, adding to that sleek black effect when the phone’s in repose. The loss of search and app controls isn’t too much of a hardship, since menu options now pop up in various apps and search is available as an on-screen widget.
From the start you’re in no doubt that this is Ice Cream Sandwich. Where past updates over the last three years have added features and fixed glitches, this version offers a completely new look and feel, albeit one that bears some resemblance to the 3.0 Honeycomb version that’s been appearing on tablets.
It’s more advanced however, with lots of cute little tweaks that not only look better, but help it to work more intuitively too – using a picture of your face to unlock the device for instance, and the action bar that appears in apps such as Google Maps, allowing you to access key functions without entering a menu first.
A couple weeks ago, the copy-cat Apple store in Kunming was exposed to the world by a blogger. But this intellectual property infringement isn’t an isolated case. There are many other China Copy stores around China purporting themselves to be official Apple stores, and stores that represent themselves as resellers despite having no ties to Apple. But it doesn’t stop with Apple. Ikea, a Swedish furniture maker, who has been rather successful in China, is another target of Chinese-style replication of Western brands and products. There are countless brands like The North Face, Bose, and Microsoft who have had their designs and products duplicated and sold on the Chinese market. It is estimated that about 80% of software and DVDs in China are pirated.
Many copy cats factories copy the fashionable electronics of large quantity which makes itself a bulk Wholesale factory and benefit much from the design copying others.
And as an English teacher in China, the problem doesn’t stop in the classroom. My student’t didn’t seem to take me seriously when I said you will fail the class if you copy from the internet or from your peers. I told my students I wasn’t interested in reading some English they copied from the internet. Instead of failing many of my students I have adjusted my teaching methods by requiring student’s speeches to be from memory, and not notes, so they cannot merely read from a paper they printed off the internet. But I was shocked at the lack of value for individual creativity I saw teaching in China during my first year.
Some will tell you Chinese culture is different because copying something else is considered a good and acceptable way to learn something (better than creating your own research?). Also many people would like to buy the China sales for its good outlook and cheap price.
But everyone knows these arguments won’t stand in today’s international economy. Even many Chinese are tired of its own culture lessening the value of Chinese science and innovation around the world. In a recent interview with NPR, Helen Zhang, who is intent on creating a science journal . China is tired of being embarrassed internationally, and the country is making every effort to increase what it calls its “soft power.” Outside of China, the country is well known for its political oppression, and now plagiarism. Beijing has been trying to soften its appearance to the rest of the world lately, even investing heavily in the film industry to try to deliver another Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon-like blockbuster that would accentuate the more desirable, more colorful aspect to Chinese culture.
It looks like Beijing will have to try a little bit harder, because the recent unearthing of China’s intellectual property violations isn’t going to sit well with the rest of the world that puts a premium on individual property. As China’s global presence becomes larger, it should be held more accountable for these types of infringements. For a country that expects to be a “research powerhouse” by 2020, the intellectual community of China has its work cut out for them.
