BlackBerry….At No-3

Posted: November 3, 2010 in News, Tech

According to NPD Group which is into tracking Smart Phone market tracking…..which gave some interesting numbers………BlackBerry’s smart phone sales have slipped to the third position in the US market. BlackBerry’s share of the US market in the third quarter fell to 22 percent from 28 percent in the second quarter. The steep fall in sales of the BlackBerry maker, which until recently dominated the US market, came despite the high-profile launch of the BlackBerry Torch 9800……

On the other hand, the sales of Apple’s have rose marginally 1%…..from 22% second qtr to 23%, pushing the BlackBerry to the third spot in the US smart phone market. But it was not Apple, but the surge in the popularity of Google’s Android operating system (OS) which did the most damage to RIM in the US market. The sales of Google Android devices jumped as much as 11% from the second quarter to account for 44% of all smart phones purchased in the third quarter……wowwwwwww

The HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid X, and other new high-end Android devices have been gaining momentum like anything at carriers which have been traditionally strong BB distributors, and the recent introduction of the BlackBerry Torch has not made much impact……

Now..this is very intresting…..According to data colleceted…..Android’s OS has made such an impact on the market that the share of RIM OS has declined by 53%, and that of Apple iOS has fallen by 21% since 2009. Because of this onslaught from Android OS.

But I enjoy my BlackBerry…..lets see whether my loyalties change in future…..

The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700. ….Makes the lap cool while using the notebook..or lap top–it also features integrated speakers that are likely to sound a lot better than any of its kind….note this is apt till display of 16″.

The difference between this device and many other similar ones is its multi capabilities…… The best part of it is its two-inch speakers which are way better than many of the in-built ones in laptops. They loud and are quite clear as well….. Rather than going for a external speaker..go for this

Logitech has kept things simple when it comes to “Looks” of this device… with a white plastic upper deck . The bottom surface has a really comfortable cushion which is almost like a grey mesh-like layering.The upper part of this of  device is white with perforations. These are to allow sound to penetrate from the 2” speakers beneath them. And, that is the first of its many extra features. The next special feature is the vent in the central area which houses a cooling fan. There is an intake area for the cooling fan at the bottom. On the side of the pad, you get buttons which control the fan and the volume of the speakers.

All you have to do is simply plug the device’s USB cable into your notebook and it’s set for action. The best part of this is you can barely hear the fans buzz. It provide is a basic flow of air which make sure that the laptop stays at a comfortable temperature.

The cushioning, with its mesh outer surface, is perhaps the most comfortable feature ever seen in a laptop pad. And, the fact that it doesn’t have any external power cable, but a USB port, becomes even handier.

Hmmm the other side of this wonderful device is that, it does kill your laptop’s battery life to almost 40-45%….. if the battery and weight is taken care…at 1.8 kg…too heavy…

It comes with a Price tag of around Rs 4,495/- only

 67% of people use Microsoft Office, quoting Forrester’s Consumer Technographics PC and Gaming survey. Google Docs a `failure’ based on what Forrester believes is a measly 4% market penetration.
1) The browser-based experience remains limited. Whatever advances have happened in programming, the fact remains that browser-based programmes offer a more limited experience than client software, as of today.

2)Consumers have a deep, longstanding relationship with Office. Consumers have years’ worth of digital assets designed in, and still most suited to, Office.

3)Local computing power is plentiful and cheap. Unlike enterprises, consumers aren’t thinking “how can I move to ‘the cloud’?” Instead, they will leverage what’s most convenient. All that computing power in their existing PCs still sits ready to use. (Source: TOI Tech)
