Samsung®, Motorola® set stage for iPad® 2 showdown

There are ongoing rumors and leaks regarding the launch of the new iPad2 and the features that it might have. Some of the few things that have already been confirmed regarding the features of the new iPad2 include the front and rear view camera and also the SD lot coming along with it. Sources from the technical group have also confirmed that the iPad 2 will tart being shipped by April of this year.The SD slot coming along with iPad 2 is believed to be meant for data transfer and not for increasing the ipods already existing storage. iPad 2 is also rumored to have GSM and CDMA chip set. This feature of the gen X iPod will allow Apple to produce a single line of iPads with which CDMA careers can be used. The other rumored feature about the iPod2 is the high resolution accompanying the cameras.With all the above features Apples iPad 2 is sure to storm the market. On the thirteenth of this month Samsung announced of the launch of Galaxy tab 10.1. Like Motorola, Samsung too is trying to put an impressive challenge to Apple’s iPod.  Both Samsung as well as Nvidia made announcements in Barcelona that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will process Google’s Android 3.0 (“Honeycomb”) software besides the dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. These are the same chips and software that are also being used by Motorola in its Xoom tablet. The software’s are to provide optimal entertainment and multimedia experience without compromising with its mobile feature.The 10-inch tablet taps by Samsung uses  the Tegra 2 chip to force the use of the first kind of  GPU-powered user interface that heve been tailored specially for tablets and other larger-screen devices. The Graphic processing units are being designed by Nvidia’a forte. Along with Tegra 2, Nvidia GeForce GPU couples with dual-core processor design from ARM. The same design is being replicated by Motorola is with the Xoom. The Tegra 2 software allows user to surf quickly along with features like fast loading and console quality gaming.

Features of both the Xoom by Motorola and the Galaxy Tab by Samsung are bound to attract user’s attention away from Apples iPad. All the three gen X tabs are almost similar in their processing systems with better graphics silicon, a dual-core processor, and a couple of cameras. Expanded memory is another feature of these modern aged iPad’s. To date, Apple has had the opportunity to grab the tablet market pretty much for itself. These days are likely to get over with the entry of heavyweights like Samsung, Google and Motorola. These software companies are bringing in technologies and marketing prowess that is surely going to make an impact on the market.

The A4 processor used in the iPad is processed by Samsung’s Semiconductor. The reason why Samsung opted for Nvidia in processing its own processor means that some kind of dynamics regarding chip sourcing exists between Apple and Samsung.

Motorola® won’t update Charm or Flipout beyond Android™ 2.1

Motorola handsets are the ones that have gained prominence and importance over the past decade. Starting from the very basic models, the brand has introduced a variety of apps and services through its upgraded handsets and a variety of models. The latest news doing the rounds in the technology circles is about the decision of Motorola to pull back its plans to update the Charm (T-Mobile) and Flipout (AT&T) handsets with Android 2.2 Froyo. These smartphones were released with Android 2.1. This further adds them to the growing list of Motorola handsets being left behind on older versions of Android. Thus, there have been more devices in the list that would never see an upgrade. Most recently, the company decided that the Cliq XT would stay on Android 1.5 and it would not have features such as live wallpapers or Google Maps navigation.

After updating its Android software upgrade timeline, Motorola had said that the Flipout and Charm handsets would remain on 2.1 for as long as possible. We can only hope that the new handsets such as Droid X or Atrix 4G get more than one update. Probably the problems arise from having to work with a lot of hardware configurations and form factors. On the other hand, these issues can also stem from the Motoblur interface that overlay Android. It could be possible that Moto integrated the custom UI too heavily, which prevents it from acting quickly for rolling out updates. There could be another likely scenario wherein these phones are not being sold out as much as what was anticipated, and that it would be a loss of time and resources on working on updates for such a limited quantity of devices.

Motorola® Atrix 4G review

The Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone is actually one of the best Android-based devices available in the market.

In the Lapdock mode, you can use a monitor, keyboard and mouse pad. The Lapdock actually remembers your last settings each time you dock on and off. The other interesting standard dock provides standard HDMI port, 3 USB, making this HD multimedia dock provided with the Motorola Atrix 4G  a wonderful experience.

Windows® Phone 7 or Google Android®?

If one is referring Gingerbread, it is believed that it is in fact Android 2.3 and not the 3.0 as rumoured previously. It is not actually known whether the specific date on which the Gingerbread operating system may be released, however, it is heard that it is going to be before the year end, and it will be in early part of the year 2011.

So far as Droid X is concerned whether it will be updated, it is presumed that there is a high possibility of it being so; however, one will have to wait for more time prior to Motorola comes around for releasing an updated version which is compatible with software of its own. It will not be wise to assume that there will be hardware update for the Droid X soon. If one is prepared to drop one’s Storm, it will not be right to assume that there is difficulty in getting the Droid X presently, particularly because the prices are beginning to drop.

Will a Windows Phone 7 handset be much user friendly as compared to Android? Windows Phone 7 is a type of platform which is new, but one will be best served with the Wilndows Phone 7 handset in comparison to other kind of two choices. The nice entry level handset is Motorola Bravo with Android 2.1, and Sony Xperia X10 will take longer time for upgrading.

One should bear in mind that Windows Phone 7 is somewhat new, therefore, the online support will not be strong as Android. However, Microsoft targets the timely updating of its software.
