This is the next Big innovation!

Lots of new innovations have introduced this year, I was wondering how far can it go. Since the curve screens are now reality , what would be the next big step. The latest ongoing innovation is the dual-edge curved screen display, and Samsung’s CEO had already shown the prototype of flexible screens back in 2012. So what’s Next?

Let me suggest you the options – 3-D Printer, Smart goggles , Transparent Smartphone , Holographic Projector. HAHA! let me tell you that these concepts are no longer concepts, they have become reality.Search the youtube and you will find out! So why I am circling around the topic ? Please Tell us whats next ?

Okay, everybody has their different tastes and choices in choosing the Smartphone. A person would buy a device which he would like to according to his specific needs and desires . Some want a good camera and battery life but don’t need a high internal storage, some might want to buy a phone with fast processors and any camera would do just fine for him. What i am trying to tell you that its all about customizations.

You would be thinking what the hell is it related to?

The next big innovation is called PROJECT ARA. What an apt name it is, yeah ! But wait till you blow your mind reading this.

PROJECT ARA

A device designed exclusive for 6 Billion people. Out of 7 billion people in the world the left 1 billion people would have no idea whats this all about until the read this in blogs ,articles , news or search the web.

“Project Ara” is code-name for an initiative that aims to develop an open hardware platform for creating highly modular Smartphones. LOL!, I didn’t understood the language either, too geeky for me. In simple words, it is like an endo-skeleton (like your CPU) in which modules (i.e RAM, Hard-Disk,Graphics Card) are attached.Whats innovative is that you can customize your phone according to your needs by swapping the modules. It is coalition of three Tech-Giants : GOOGLE , MOTOROLA , LINARO.

They intend to sell the starteer kit which includes Display , Battery , Low-end CPU and Wi-fi for 50USD.

Conversion chart:

  • USD 50
  • Rs 3,200
  • 39 Australian Dollar
  • 314 Chinese Yuan
  • 4780 Algerian Dinar
  • 6000 Japenese Yen

You can convert it to your currency by using Google currency converter.

Let me tell you that it brings the smartphone industry to a who lot different level and it will be successful as leading companies such as APPLE, SAMSUNG ,HTC are making premium device at a very higher cost so we need something budget friendly with good specs at this point of time as onle 1 Billion people use  Smartphones and the rest 5 or 6 idk billion people use Featured-phones.

Lets Hope for the best. So this the next big innovation

HOW ITS GOING TO BRING GOOGLE ON THE TOP OF THE LIST?

 

 

 

 

Google plans to sell budget smartphones like this to beat Apple and Samsung. HOW? You would be thinking that Samsung and apple Phones are 20 time costlier than Project ARA then how?

Let me explain you this concept with an example.Wider range of People will buy Project ARA, and it estimates that more no. of units will be sold at less profit than less no. of units sold with more profit. Little tricky but it works as featured phone user are 5 billion. think yourself .Also Google will sell after market modules in large nos.

  • NAKED BIKES (Street bikes)

These Bikes are basically for everyday commuting. They are specially designed to provide you the best mileage a bike can get.These are budget Friendly and are Low maintenance also. They are Easier to Ride. They provide good mileage at the compromise of performance.

RECOMMENDED : KTM Duke , Pulsar , FZ

  • SPORTS BIKE

These are Performance bikes and are fully-faired. They are specially designed for Racing and provide high performance at the cost of Comfort and mileage.

Apple Is Totally Screwed

Uncrunched

Apple has a very large problem right now.

I’m not talking about legal liability over the nude celebrity photos and videos being posted all over the internet right now (dubbed “The Fappening”), although I think that’s also an issue. Celebrities tend to have aggressive attorneys, and the damages here are extreme – some celebrities have had careers ended from leaked photos (while others have benefited)

But a much larger crisis looms – everyone, and I mean everyone, now knows that everything private they’ve done with their iPhone, if they use iCloud, is not only vulnerable, but extremely vulnerable.

The Next Web says that a tool that allows brute force attacks against the Find My iPhone service gives hackers a way in to iCloud.

That may or may not be what’s actually going on. Hacker Nik Cubrilovic, for example, says it isn’t slowing people down from accessing new accounts:

iPhone users just got screwed:(First Samsung s6 and Now Blackphone 2)

WHAT IS A BLACKPHONE?

Blackphone is a heavily customised android smartphone that is made with 1 priority i.e. Security. Blackphones are the world’s most secured smartphones.

BLACKPHONE 2 (RS40,000)blackphone-2  

Silent Circle, the maker of the privacy-oriented Blackphone, has unveiled a successor. Logically named the Blackphone 2, the phone promises even tighter security and updated specs to better fit 2015 market. Additionally, there’s also a new tablet from the company – the Blackphone+.blackphone2_engadget

The Blackphone 2 sports an updated 64-bit octa-core processor in an yet unknown chipset and a much larger 5.5″ 1080p display covered in Gorilla Glass 3. That’s quite a hefty update compared to the old phone’s 4.7″ HD screen.

Additionally, the Blackphone 2 sports a 3,060mAh battery, which features quick charging. Sadly, it’s not user replaceable. Additional features include microSD card slot, LTE and 3GB of RAM.

The phone runs PrivatOS 1.1, which features enhanced Spaces UI for separating different parts of the Android experience from one another. It allows you to assigns different logins for different areas of the device. For example, you can assign a login for all your communication apps and then have a separate one for your document apps.Blackphone2-1

Silent Circle has priced the phone at $649 – the same as the first generation Blackphone. As for the tablet, it’s a 7″ device, which uses a Qualcomm chip, but the company hasn’t shared much info just yet.

Co-founder and Silent Circle chairman Mike Janke had this to add, “Never before have private citizens been under barrage from world governments — hacking, vacuuming, and chipping away at our privacy.” Silent Circle boasts $750 million in orders for its the first Blackphone and anticipates the second generation to be an even bigger success.

“We’re replacing BlackBerry, we don’t care that BlackBerry’s CEO is throwing nasty things about us onto Twitter. We’re going to dominate them,” said Mike Janke at launch.blackphone2-247x180

Foolish Step:Blackberry Leap (Rs 18,000)

blackberry-leap-front-hand-hero blackberry-leap-13The Blackberry Leap is not the company’s first all-touch phone – but it may come as a surprise, since its chief executive said last March his focus was going to be “very keyboard-centric”.blackberry-leap-11

The Canadian company has alsorevealed it is bringing more of its software to rival platforms.

Sales of Blackberry phones are falling.

The company shipped 7.9 million devices last year, according to research firm Gartner.

That was a big drop on 2013’s figure of 18.6 million units, which in turn was well down on 2011’s tally of 51.5 million handsets.

A separate study by research company eMarketer indicates the number of UK-based Blackberry users is set to dip to 700,000 this year, having been as high as 2.5 million in 2013.

Crowded market

Blackberry’s Leap runs on its proprietary 10.3.1 operating system and features:

  • a 5in (12.7cm) 720p HD resolution display
  • an eight megapixel rear camera
  • 16GB of internal storage and a micro-SD card slot
  • built-in anti-malware protection

The specifications place it firmly as a mid-range, rather than premium, handset.

I think BB should not build devices without physical Keyboards. It represents their iconic status and  appeals the younger gen.To improve your sales by introducing full touchscreen candy bars,why would I buy this smartphone when so many good smartphones are already their with higher specs at this budget.According to me you just ruined it all. i love BB with a physical keyboard, it reminds me how premium and classic the company used to be, but thats me.Lets see how your sales goes(Decrease only)! and the best device yet is Blackberry Passport.
