One of the best Android phones out there, Samsung Galaxy S III and Blackberry’s new Z10 square off this Superbowl I’m not a big football fan, I find it fun to watch, but I don’t go out of my way to watch it until the Superbowl. Why? With the added excitement of the game I have the added excitement of commercials pushing the envelope. I still have fond memories of the Budweiser frogs! Anyway, this years lineup of commercials was… sad. Nothing really stood out or made me laugh out loud. Two commercials in particular were ones I was looking forward to seeing. Blackberry and Samsung’s spots. How did they play out and did they do the job of grasping their audience.
It seems nothing is slowing Samsung down after it surpassed Nokia in cellphone sales just a year ago. Samsung, who has been ahead of Apple in the smartphone marketshare, has lengthened it’s lead over the supposed smartphone giant. With the massive success of the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note 2, it’s no surprise that they have had massive success. But just how much success have they been having? And what companies are biting at their heels besides Apple?
Getting ready to sell your used cell phone? Our slogan here at TheBlueDot is “forever evolving”, which is exactly what our website has been doing this past year. We have meetings almost weekly on how to improve the trade in page’s design as well as how to implement the same elements into the main website. There was one thing we noticed around the time of the iPhone 5′s release, an increase in Apple iPhone trade in requests. So, launching officially just a few days ago, we made it even easier for you to trade in your used iPhone cell phone!
Sometimes there are tons of things to write about. Lots of new tech and new software coming out every week, makes it really easy to write about. But not today! Today there are just little snippets of things here and there, not enough to make a full blown article about any single item. So, we’re going to give you little news updates in bite sizes today. Let’s get started!
Well, that certainly was a big show… Samsung, the new leader in cellphone sales, just officially unveiled the next line of Galaxy S Android Smart Phones. What’s new, is this a big game changer and will Samsung continue to dominate the cellphone market with their next gen phone line? There’s lots of information to cover on all those things, but lets stick to the stuff most consumers will care about and skip over the developer information. So lets get started!
The average time someone has their cell phone, be it a smart phone or feature phone, is about 18 months. Which is surprising as most cell phone plans end at 24 months, giving you the usual discounts that come with renewing your plans. More and more people are buying used and refurbished phones that others trade in to receive cutting edge smart phones as soon as they are released. For example, we saw a big increase of Droid Razr cell phones for trade in’s. And when I say “increase”, I mean from zero trade in’s to actually getting that phone in trade in’s. I mention that because that phone was only two months old when we started getting trade in requests, which is typically unheard of for any cell phone so early in it’s life. This was mostly blamed on the recent release of the Droid Razr MAXX which made many folks immediately trade in their two month old smart phone.
