Qualcomm Announces Augmented Reality Platform for Google Android Phones

Qualcomm announced a new software development kit to encourage the development of augmented reality (AR) applications for the Google Android operating system that will help the developers to create new augmented reality apps for devices using Google’s Android operating system.

Taking Technology to the next level, Paul Jacobs, Qualcomm’s chief executive has launched the software development kit at the company’s Upling conference; this kit will be offered for free to the developers and is aimed at encouraging them to create a new generation of vision-based augmented reality applications.

The Company’s 1GHz processor already powers some of the most advanced and wanted Smartphone’s, including Google’s Nexus One and HTC’s HD2, Incredible, and EVO 4g Smartphone’s, for once the Google’s Android phones are ahead of Apple’s iPhone. iPhone users will have to wait for the next operating system before they can use some of the best augmented reality apps.

The software development kit brings the world of fiction to reality, this concept of (AR) existed for years but with the latest generation of mobile phones many of which encompass 3G mobile internet access and access to a growing range of mobile applications, augmented reality’s route into the mainstream becomes clear.

The software development kit features different (AR) apps, one example would be a program which activates when pointing a camera phone down a city street, then tags all the retail stores with data about the store’s offerings and by focusing your phone camera on a building you can get to know more about the history of the building on your screen.

Qualcomm’s augmented reality platform offers state of the art image detection and tracking technology, this software is already in use by toy maker Mattel, the potential of this technology is illustrated by the 21st century makeover to the company’s classic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em boxing game which is serving as a testbed for the AR technology. The players can control the sparring by hitting the buttons on the touch screen to floor the opponent down.

Qualcomm will make the beta version of the software kit available in fall.

The Company has also announced its collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology to establish an augmented reality studio. The studio will use Qualcomm’s augmented reality platform to develop new application concepts and prototypes. And is also partnering with game engine developer Unity Technologies to create the potential for augmented reality games running on Unity for Android.

The concept of (AR) has been borrowed from science fiction- digital content and is superimposed on a live view from a camera. Augmented Reality has proved increasingly popular in the recent times and is a feature that has left behind Apple’s iPhone.

Augmented Reality technology is ideal for technology solutions that extend physical toys into new. But obvious, this vision of the future is dependent on a number of factors, not least augmented technology making the leap from mobile phones in to something less obtrusive, something that could be worn at all times.

Apple Bound for Anti-Trust Probe

Apple’s recent action to change the rules in its App Store prohibiting third party companies from collecting data from its iPhone applications and keeping Adobe and other software development companies from writing in its platforms is causing Apple to become an anti-trust target. These moves look like it is aimed to prevent advertising network from reporting to its buyers and will stop developers from working with Google and AdMob on its advertising.

Apple will likely be facing an investigation regarding the terms and conditions in it new mobile advertising network iAd. This new network was based on a technology that was acquired from Quattro Wireless this year.

The anti-trust probe will be led by the US Federal Trade Commission and will see if the new iAd terms and conditions are unfair to other competitors from targeting the iPhone and iPad in its advertising. Since Apple has become an industry leader, for an outsider it would look like they have been making deliberate moves like these which seem to challenge and provoke the authorities just to see how far they can reasonably go.

IBM, Microsoft, and Intel are some companies that have faced anti-trust actions before. Usually, these companies infringe on their competitors. For example, Microsoft was one serial infringer who repeatedly places conditions on their distributors and OEMs shutting out their rivals like Real Networks and Sun.

There are some costs that may incur because of these probes. The first one comes from fines from a competition authority like the Competition Commission in Europe and is fairly minimal. Since the US competition commission rarely acts, the fines have to be paid in Europe. This is usually because the US corporate mid collectively prefer monopoly because of investor benefits on consistent dividends.

Another cost imposed is behavioural change. Ani-trust authorities get benefits from their customers making sure that these big companies cannot dictate the pricing in the market nor impose technical standards that are unfair and inappropriate. Once this is changed, exclusivity clauses in contracts or having open and stable terms that will give competitors a fair chance will get the regulators out of the picture. This slows the regulators down but does not stop them completely.

The third cost is the one that causes a standstill to the monopoly. The self-imposed “do no more anti-trust” edicts run throughout a company after having been charged with a major fine. The theory was that the company would benefit more if it avoided these anti-trust probes so these internal business practices and any element of them were crushed and ignored.

With this, it is not very likely for Apple to be bound for a formal anti-trust probe since it is not really dominant enough. Apple may have seventy percent of the online music market but it is quite an overstatement since that figure does not include all the music subscription revenue.

Its App Store is also not that dominant yet since it is a new idea and that market has not settled down yet. In terms of market dominance, Apple does not sell more phones than the other brands and Google proves that with its string of around 30 Android phones with more coming on the way.
