ZTE Nubia Z7: towards a 6.3 inch screen?

If we are to believe the rumors came straight from Asia, while ZTE may soon launch a new smartphone that is positioned on the same area as the range of Samsung Note. The ZTE Nubia Z7 is the name of this phone, and benefit from a screen of 6.3 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 . Can you imagine? The same resolution as a 27-inch iMac, but on a 6 inch screen and bananas. Pretty impressive, and also know that the rest of the technical characteristics of the beast is supposed to exactly the same order.

According to this noise corridor, ZTE Nubia Z7 could hit very hard with 8 cores processor, Mali-T658 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 128GB of storage space and a sensor of 16 megapixels to top it all . I do not know if you follow closely everything that comes onto the market of mobile phones, but if these specifications are correct then the Z7 Nubia would be required as the most powerful smartphone sector. At least at the moment.

However, with such screen resolution such and such a processor, we can ask whether the autonomy of the terminal will be sufficient. It seems that ZTE had planned the coup as the Z7 Nubia could enjoy a 4000 mAh battery . Again, unless I am mistaken, this is the first mobile to have such a battery. I do not know what you think, but in my case, I still have eyes that shine.

Is obviously the question of the embedded platform. Again, the ZTE Nubia Z7 would benefit from very strong since the next version of Android , and therefore 5.0. Version should tumble in the coming months and that we should talk very quickly. After going back to mobile, you still not too excited because even though there, nothing says it will hit the European market.

Nokia Lumia and Asha sell better than expected

Nokia could go back in the race with its Lumia and Asha range which totaled 13.7 million sales in three months.

Since the advent of the smartphone, Nokia began its slow decline. He was the leader of mobile phones for 14 long years with the phones features (conventional phones), before being surpassed by Samsung in 2012.

However, the Finnish manufacturer has changed its strategy last October. It has launched its new range of smartphones Lumia and Asha range for emerging countries, both in Windows Phone. And provided preliminary results for the 4th quarter, this tactic would bear fruit.

Net sales division "Devices & Services" reached nearly 3.9 billion euros. Thus, the group has sold more than 86.3 million phones, including 13.7 million smartphones. Of these, Nokia has sold 9.3 million units and 4.4 million Asha Lumia. These results have exceeded the expectations of Nokia which therefore welcomes the good sales.

If we are still very far from the figures of Apple and Samsung, Nokia Windows Phones seem to meet with some success. According to Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft would even these smartphones already out of stock in "some places around the world." But for the moment, Windows Phone only about 3.5% of market share in the world. It is still far from the 20% estimated by analysts in 2013.

Google accused of "trade diversion"

According to the European Commissioner Joaquin Almunia, the Web giant of abusing its dominant position. He put forward its own services over those of its competitors.

Google will show your credentials before the European Commission. In an interview published on Friday 11 January by the Financial Times, Joaquin Almunia, European Commissioner for competition doubts about the practices of Google.

Its search engine , which generates 90% of research is indeed suspected to highlight priority Google services to the detriment of its competitors. The Mountain View giant and is the target of an investigation by the European authorities for several months.

"We are continuing our investigation, but my belief is that they divert traffic, said Joaquin Almunia. they monetize this type of service, they have a strong position in the general market research and I am afraid that is not only dominant position but also an abuse of that dominant position".

Bleached to States

However, this opinion is not shared by all. On the other side of the Atlantic, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the U.S. trade policeman, Google blanked, ending an investigation that began in 2011.

The company has fared with the commitments it must comply under penalty of prosecution. This includes the use of its advertising platform and its patents obtained after the acquisition of Motorola. In Europe, Google will present its concessions to the European Commission this month.

HTC M7 launch next month?

It must be decided upon, the HTC M7 will probably not introduced at CES 2013. It felt hard as iron, yet, but the South Korean automaker seems to have decided to take his time. Mind you, it is understood, the ads tend to get lost in the din of the show. Too much information kills information. However, if one believes GizChina, then the HTC M7 could be announced sooner than we think: it would be unveiled next month, or at the MWC 2013, during a conference dedicated.

Then of course, the information should be taken with a grain of salt since it is, for the moment, only a rumor as we see often go on the web. No official source has reported the release or the launch of HTC M7 and it will eventually wait a few weeks before we see more clearly whether and before GizChina was right.

Towards a battle M7 HTC / Samsung Galaxy S4?

After that, what is certain is that the next may be particularly loaded. There is the HTC M7 should not arrive soon, but this is not the only motive that we should bestow his presence as is also talk that Samsung enjoys early this year to formalize its Galaxy S4, a Galaxy S4 should be submitted by the manufacturer somewhere between the MWC and May. HTC, meanwhile, has an interest not to wait too long if it does not want his M7 is found in front of this monster popularity. When you see the sales volume of the previous models, we say that this is really not in his interest.

As a reminder and if you're too lazy to look around, it may be recalled that the HTC M7 should include a screen of 4.7 inches with a resolution of type FullHD 1080p, quad-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB RAM, one 13 megapixel sensor, the latest version of Jelly Bean and the latest version of HTC Sense. On paper, so we end up characteristics quite similar to those of the Xperia Z. It is therefore understandable why the M7 is eagerly awaited.

Apple does not work on an iPhone "low cost"

Since the beginning of the week , we hear of several U.S. sites that Apple could launch at the end of the year an iPhone "low cost" for emerging markets. Bloomberg was even further by saying that the iPhone would be sold between $ 99 and $ 149 , not one euro more. Incredible, as they say, but we all-of-knowing that Phil Schiller has spoken on the issue. And we can say that his statements are very clear since the man said that the firm was working absolutely not a product of this type. That way, at least it is fixed.

We can also specify that the boyfriend Philou not been with the back of the spoon as an iPhone even said "low cost", or even cheap, will see ever day. NEVER HEAR YOU! According to him, Apple is not like any other business, and it has absolutely no need to get a cheaper product to attract consumers. Better still, it has even run a small spike Samsung stating that the bitten apple was not these firms are launching multiple products at once.

Enchainer and then on an economic argument quite interesting. Phil actually said because Apple had only 20% market share in the mobile market, and more specifically on the area of smartphones, and even though the firm totaled alone, 75% of profits segment. In other words, Apple has absolutely no need to launch an iPhone "low cost" as the current models it is plenty. Finally, Phil noted that the choice of the best technology and the best materials, was precisely what allowed Apple to become a major player in the sector.

I would like to say that I am surprised by these statements, but we can not say that this is really the case, since I have never believed in this rumor. And if I think your actions on Twitter / Google+, it seems that I am not alone in this case. Therefore damage to the Wall Street Journal's sources, Digitimes and Bloomberg.

Google: a "Chrome Beta Channel" for Android

Is a story that should please all those who have a terminal Android home. Google has actually announced through one of its official blogs arrival of a "Chrome Beta Channel" on Play the store and thus Android . What does that mean? Just that you will have the opportunity to test all the new future versions of Chrome before anyone else, and without rotting your system. Just like Windows, just like Mac OS, but Android. And this is still a very good news, right?

The idea is quite simple. Play on the Store, you will now find a new application called Chrome Beta  and, as its name indicates, will allow you access to beta versions of the popular browser. The interesting thing is that this application will not replace your regular Chrome, so you can use both at the same time without any problems. Just like Chrome Canary, for those who know.

In this version, for example, it appears that improvements are numerous. The Chrome Beta benefit thus better performance and also bear many new HTML5 , including CSS Filters . So of course, requires beta, not everything will work maybe not with onions, some bugs are to be expected, but that you will at least have an idea of what will happen in Google. Moreover, if one believes the reviews left by users who tested the application, it seems that Chrome Beta works pretty well.

The trick, of course, is that you will never disembark this application on the AppStore. And yes, because it is still very surprising that the teams in charge of the shop validate an application in beta encoded by a competitor. Morality, if you have an iPhone and you absolutely want to test Chrome Beta, you will have no choice but to go to the other side of the fence.
