Smartphone market in 2011 and 2013: looks nice to Apple





marketshare

Generator Research says that Nokia's smartphone marketshare will plummet from over 40 percent today to only 20 percent by 2013. They predict that Apple, on the other hand, will hit 33 percent marketshare by that point, matching Nokia sometime in 2011—just two years away—with 77 million phones.

That scenario, though, depends on some awesome conditions for Apple (think about 77 million iPhones!) on top of some truly horrific ignorance from Nokia, letting the smartphone market go almost entirely with a half-assed defense of its position as it focuses on profits from its mass volume low-cost wares in developing countries. Probably Nokia will stop making smartphones like the N97 some day and will create something nice.

iPhones and iPods Banned at Gates' Home



bg

This month's Vogue has a great interview with Mrs. Bill Gates, the lovely philanthropist Melinda Gates. The interview focuses on the Microsoft founder's better half, but there's a fun Apple rivalry moment in the piece, when the subject of the couples' kids is brought up. She says: "There are very few things that are on the banned list in our household. But iPods and iPhones are two things we don't get for our kids." Gates does admit to being swayed — a little— by Apple's smartphone, though: "Every now and then I look at my friends and say 'Ooh, I wouldn't mind having that iPhone'."

3G SmartPhone Battery Life: iPhone Leads



The battery life on Apple's new 3G iPhone isn't great, but it beats that of other 3G smartphones we've seen, say testers at PC World's Test Center. In the study's standard talk-time battery life test, an iPhone, on average, ran 5 hours and 38 minutes, a performance PC World deems "fair."

The original iPhone, which ran on AT&T's slower EDGE network, lasted 10 hours of our test. But the 3G iPhone beat out the rest of the current 3G smartphone pack, most of which fell shy of the five-hour mark that's the cutoff between a word score of fair and poor in PC World's performance ratings.

The iPhone 3G also beat out competitors on Sprint and Verizon's EVDO mobile broadband networks, including the Palm Centro (4:19) and the Samsung Instinct (5:33), PC World says.

ICQ, MSN, AOL, Yahoo, Jabber and GoogleTalk on IPhone



There was an application called Apollo IM. It worked, but didn't work good - it hanged, dropeed connections, exited for no reason. Later there was MobileChat, which version 2.23-2 was much better than Apollo. It did work. It leasе I used it with ICQ many times. However it didn't have history and there were some problems with offline cyrillic messages.

Now there is AgileMessenger. It is quite popular, because it supports many phones (not just smartphones). Now it is avaliable for IPhone. The interface is good. Users can chat, send pictures, there is history. And history is saved even when you restart an application. There is even a traffic meter.
