If you’re in tech circles you have probably already heard of Google Glass, in fact, it may be old news to you. But since I know everyone isn’t in the know for all tech going ons, I have a few tidbits on this new tech that I’m sure you’ll love to hear. What does this mean for wireless communication, and how does it actually work?
If you Blue Dots are anything like me, you are practically foaming at the mouth waiting for the latest updates from those magical folks at Google. Heck, even if you aren’t as excited as I am to be on the cutting edge of technology, it never hurts to keep your product up to date with Android’s many dessert themed upgrades. The newest update that may be coming to your phone is code named Ice Cream Sandwich. It brings lots of cool new features, a smoother interface and a uniform look to the Android Platform whether it’s a brand new or used cell phone!
It’s no secret that the Droid Razr was a big hit this 4th quarter, but apparently it wasn’t a big enough hit to make up a 80 million dollar loss in revenue for Motorola. That isn’t typically a bad drop, but it also means stagnating profits. Motorola saw a big raise in profits once they partnered with Google, which probably saved their business as a whole. Recently Motorola agreed to be acquired by Google for 12.5 billion dollars, which is still being processed by multiple financial regulatory agencies including the EU.
This past holiday season it was quite evident that the Amazon Kindle Fire was incredibly successful, especially for Amazon. But what does that success mean for Google? It may not mean as much as you would think and you may know why if you own the Kindle Fire. Look though your Kindle Fires apps, what is missing that all Android phones have? That’s right, the Android Marketplace. Amazon essentially gutted out the Marketplace and put their own in its place. Which means one thing for Google, less profit.
It’s no secret I am kind of cheering the Windows 7 phone line along. I don’t actually own one, but I am intrigued by Nokia’s big push and sleek phone designs along with a rather sleek new Windows interface. Not to mention integration with my computer and Xbox. So far it hasn’t proven itself to me yet, but it seems it has proven itself to some analysts who make a living off of cellphone business guesswork.
