Why Having the HTC Thunderbolt on Long Road Trips can Be Essential


First of all, the most important part of traveling is probably the ability to find out where you are going and eventually get there. For most of driving history, people made use of maps to help them with this process, and then in recent years, people transitioned to using GPS devices to help them out. GPS devices offered a number of advantages, such as real time feedback and the ability to update your maps as you went along. Recently, smart phones have become very essential to the way we carry out our lives so there have also been a number of GPS applications created that allow our smart phones to become miniature GPS devices.
One of the easiest travelling applications to use is Google Maps. This application is a mini version of the very popular website, Google Maps. It works just like the actual website; you only need to enter the starting location as well as any desired destination and you will be able to view a detailed map of your route.
The app even features additional elements that you will have a difficult time finding in other apps, such as street views and satellite perspectives. Satellite views allow you to pick up bird's eye views of where you are planning on traveling. Similarly street views allow you to see exactly what certain streets, homes, and individual locations look like, which can be extremely helpful when you have never been to a certain place before.
However, as great as an app such as Google Maps Navigation can be for helping you figure out where things are, it still is not the only game in town when it comes to range and direction finding. Co Pilot is also another very popular navigation program for smart phones. Just like Google Maps, Co Pilot also has the feature that allows the user to enter their destination of choice and they will also get easy and straightforward directions. Although they do share some features these applications are also a bit different. For example, the Co Pilot app has an interface that is arguably far friendlier to drivers while they are on the road than that of Google Maps Navigation. If you already have a traditional GPS or are used to a regular system such as a Garmin or even a Tom Tom, you will find many more similarities through the Co Pilot navigation app.
Getting lost is a thing of the past thanks to smart phones. Beyond these apps, you might want to look into some of the many accessories that are available, including an extra battery and an extra charger. Accessories like a battery or a charger can be very beneficial because it will prolong the uptime of your mobile device. This can be an essential way to keep your mobile device running during long trips.

The Teen Review: AT HTC Inspire 4G


inspire 4g boxThe first two months of 2011 have been pretty big ones for AT&T– first in January they announced their first three 4G phones at CES and then releasing the first two of them last month—the HTC Inspire 4G and the Motorola Atrix 4G. For the last two weeks we've been testing the first of AT&T's 4G phones, the HTC Inspire 4G, and we gotta say for the carriers first 4G phone its pretty impressive.
Design and Screen

inspire 4g iphone homescreen compare

The Inspire's screen is almost bigger than the ENTIRE iPhone 4!
The Inspire 4G is pretty much AT&T's version of Sprint's first 4G phone, the EVO 4G, and like the EVO, the design and screen of the Inspire are just amazing.

inspire vs iphone keyboard

When you first pick up the Inspire you quickly realize just how HUGE this phone is. Even after using the EVO numerous times before, everything just felt so much bigger here– though that overwhelming feeling goes away pretty quickly after a little bit of use. In fact we quickly came to appreciate the extremely spacious 4.3 inch screen. While it's not as sharp as the Atrix's 4 inch screen or the iPhone 4′s 3.5 inch screen, everything looked pretty incredible– YouTube, websites, Facebook, pictures, games– and typing was equally great. I usually use an iPhone 4 as my main phone so I'm pretty used to typing on touchscreen keyboards, but even people I showed the Inspire to who normally use BlackBerry keyboards loved the spacious keyboard on the Inspire.

And in terms of the design of the phone, it's incredibly thin and feels great in your hand (assuming you don't have really small hands, in that case we recommend you try this out in a store to make sure it works well for you). Just like the G2 and EVO, the Inspire is everything you'd expect design wise from a new HTC phone– it's a phone that when you hold it feels like something valuable and not just a bunch of cheap plastic.
Now while all this is nice and good we did have one issue with the design and screen. We kept seeing the digitizer (the touch part of a touchscreen– it generally looks like bunch of dots in neat rows) under the screen, sometimes even when the screen was on. This in most cases wasn't too terrible but it was pretty frustrating if you look at the screen from the wrong angle, in which case you can see some of the dots and is pretty distracting.
Overall though, we really liked the Inspire 4G's screen and design.

The Inspire, again like the EVO, packs an 8 megapixel camera with dual flash and HD video recording and like the EVO the pictures and videos we shot with the Inspire's camera were pretty impressive. If it wasn't for its lack of an optical zoom (something that's lacking on pretty much all camera phones today mainly because these zooms, while sharper than the more common digital zoom, would require the phones to be much thicker), we'd say this camera could very well replace any traditional digital camera. The pictures and videos we took were just that good.
We also really loved the built-in photo effects like depth of field, sepia and distortion which allow you to play with the shots for more professional (or fun) looking pics (we really loved depth of field for those looking which gave us more control of the focus of the camera). Throw in the one-click uploading to Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, Flickr or YouTube and the camera becomes even more powerful.
Here are a couple of sample shots we took with the Inspire's camera. As you can see for yourself, they came out pretty great.

inspire 4g sample shot 2

One thing we did wish the Inspire had: a front camera for video chat like other 4G phones (why all 4G phones don't have this standard we don't know).
Software/HTC Sense 2.0
As you've probably seen on most Android phones from pretty much every manufacturer seems to put on their own type of software "skin" to further customize and differentiate their phones from the competition. While we understand why they do this, a lot of the times some of these "tweaks" end up being more harmful than they are helpful particularly when compared to Google's un-customized, stock Android experience (like on the G2 and Nexus S). We really loved using the clean Android on the G2 but even we must admit the work HTC's done here with their new Sense 2.0 is pretty impressive.
Not only did things run incredibly quick (no doubt thanks to the software being optimized to take full use of the Inspire's 1 GHZ processor and 768 MB of RAM), but this new Sense offers a whole bunch of new features that make using an Android phone much more enjoyable.
A few of the new Sense 2.0 features include:

htc sense 2.0 pinch tab browsing

Pinch-to-zoom to switch home screens and browser tabs– great news for anyone with a ton of apps on their home screens or those who want a cool way to switch tabs in the browser (all you do in both is pinch all the way out as if you were zooming out on a picture).
HTC Sense.com– the ability to track down a lost phone from any computer like Apple's Find My iPhone app. All you need to do is go to HTCSense.com, log in and just like that you can see exactly where your phone is, make it ring at full volume– so you can better find it if it fell out of your pocket and into the couch– or even remotely lock and delete your stuff from it in case you actually lose your phone. Heck, you can even set it to forward all your calls and messages to a new number all right from your computer.
HTC Sync– For easily syncing your contacts, photos, videos and music with your Windows computer (you can even import playlists with your songs from iTunes).
Friend Stream—This is HTC's way of keeping your social networks in order, one app all your friends and networks. While we like the idea of linking all this info together (particularly when syncing your contacts with your Facebook friends so you get all that info in one place), I personally found things got too cluttered when you began to combine more than one network and preferred just using the regular Facebook and Twitter apps to keep connected. Though if you're the type of person that loves having everything as organized and condensed as possible, this may be perfect for you.

inspire 4g htc hub

HTC Hub—This is HTC's custom Android Market where you can completely customize your HTC phone to your heart's content. Skins, wallpapers, widgets, ringtones– they're all here and a click away from downloading onto your phone. This also goes together with a second app called HTC Likes, which features some of the Android Market apps that HTC recommends.
Underneath HTC Sense is Android 2.2 that we all know and love. Unfortunately, there are a lot of "crapware" (or AT&T specfic apps like AT&T Navigator, a demo of the racing game Asphalt 5, Blockbuster, AT&T Code Scanner, AT&T Family Map and AT&T Live TV) preloaded on here, and you cannot delete them from your device. Sure it's not a deal breaker, but sometimes we found the apps slowing things down and would've really loved to just remove them.
Media and Call Quality

inspire 4g dolby srs

One of the major down spots on the Inspire for us had to be the media playback and call quality. Calls made using the handset itself sounded fine, but once we tried to go on speaker everything sounded really low and weak even on the highest volume. The same is true for when we played back YouTube or listened to music. Using headphones everything was solid but once we went to speaker things were just too low.
What made things worse here is we expected the sound experience on the Inspire to be much better than your average phone as this packs some pretty powerful audio features like built-in Dolby Mobile and SRS Surround Sound. For the most part we really couldn't find any real difference when we used either of these features in the Music app– both on speaker and with headphones– compared to music on an iPod, and this also ate at the battery life (there were times where it helped, but mostly no difference). Speaking of battery life….
Battery Life

inspire 4g battery

The Inspire is a beast with its 4.3 inch screen, powerful 1 GHZ processor, Dolby Mobile and SRS Surround Sound, and of course, 4G. All this running constantly with some multitasking of apps you'd think would completely kill the battery. Fortunately that wasn't the case and we were able to get a pretty solid days use in before needing to find an outlet (from about 7:30 AM to 4 PM). We do wish it ran a little longer (our iPhone generally gets us about 1-2 hours more), but overall for how smooth things were running it was pretty solid.

att hspa+ logo

Out of all the features of the Inspire, the biggest is its support for AT&T's 4G HSPA+ network. Like all of AT&T's 3G phones, the Inspire was pretty fast no matter what were doing with it– streaming Internet radio, watching live TV and YouTube, browsing the web, etc. Thing is, when we compared it to our iPhone 4 there were many times where we found the iPhone 4 tying or flat-out beating the Inspire 4G in network speed all over the place. Sites and videos loaded faster on the iPhone, and when we ran speed tests the iPhone was most of the time much, much faster than the Inspire (sometimes even picking up 5 Mbps when the Inspire was just getting 2 Mbps). We ran these tests all across the New York City area and again, the iPhone 4 just seemed to be faster.
Of course the Inspire 4G wasn't slow by any stretch and if you weren't looking over to time it against an iPhone you'd be more than happy with it (and AT&T has even said they plan to release a software update over the coming months to make data on the Inspire even better and faster).
Note: even though this is "4G" it will not work on AT&T's "other", faster 4G LTE network launching this summer. Like T-Mobile, AT&T has re-branded their faster 3G network as 4G (or 4G HSPA+) which is what the Inspire uses. To use the LTE network you'll need a phone that supports LTE like Verizon has with the upcoming HTC ThunderBolt.
Wrap Up

inspire 4g wrap up

So if you're looking for a new phone should you go with the Inspire 4G? Even with some of its faults we still really loved using the Inspire 4G and it's definitely up there as one of AT&T's top phones. It looks good, it's fast, and supports AT&T's current latest and greatest network. And at $99.99 on a two-year contract and data plan from AT&T ($70 with a new upgrade from Amazon) it's also one of the best deals out there today for AT&T customers.
The HTC Inspire 4G is available now for $99.99 on a two-year contract and data plan from AT&T.

6 Upcoming Dual-Core Android Smartphones


This year has seen the explosive birth of a new kind of mobile device. Dual-core superphones are almost impossibly powerful compared to even the immediate previous generation of handsets. There's a reason the Atrix launched with a laptop dock as a key feature. 'Mobile' doesn't mean 'underpowered' anymore. If you want more out of your smartphone, you want one of these six behemoths.
Samsung's Galaxy S 2:
This is my favorite Samsung phone ever. It's deliciously thin, three times as powerful as its predecessor, and even beautiful to look at. And you can't fault the hardware. There's a 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of on-board storage. The S 2 can take a microSD card and the display is a 4.3" Super AMOLED. By some measures, it is the most powerful smartphone in the world right now.
Buying One: If you live under the coverage of Orange or T-Mobile UK, the S 2 will be available on April 27th. US availability hasn't been revealed yet, but rumors have it hitting Verizon at least in May. If the S 2 follows the pattern of the original Galaxy S, all four carriers will receive their own branded version of the phone.
The Motorola Bionic:
Here is Motorola's dual-core answer to the HTC ThunderBolt. The Bionic is a dual-core 1 Ghz-packing LTE smartphone with a mighty 4.3" qHD display and an 8 MP camera.
Verizon's 4G network is definitely the prime selling point on this baby. But not the only one. Unlike the Atrix, the Bionic feels solid- comforting, in your hands. Moto did well with this one.
Of course, Moto's delay of the Bionic doesn't bode well for the handset's future. Issues with motorola battery life seem to be endemic with LTE devices right now. And the Bionic adds the strain of a dual-core processor to 4G's vampiric embrace.
Buying One: The Bionic is currently scheduled for release in "summer", with Verizon as the only carrier.
The HTC Sensation:
The Atrix was a bust, and the Sensation is HTC's attempt to prove they can do better. This beast of a smartphone has a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and a 4.3" qHD display. It has a slick aluminum unibody frame and brags the ability to shoot 1080p video at 30fps. For multitasking power, there's 768 MB of RAM. The Sensation falls down on storage though- only 4 GB onboard with an 8 GB microSD card included. Long life HTC Batteries.
Buying One: HTC's first dual-core foray is only available through T-Mobile. It is expected to launch on June 8 and will run on T-Mo's HSPA+ network.
The Motorola Droid X2:
If at first you don't succeed, try try again. Motorola's taken this bit of advice to heart with the X2. It packs a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 768 MB of RAM. There's a 4.3" qHD display and, of course, an 8 MP shooter. That would sound a lot more impressive if it weren't so damnably similar to the other phones on this list. Come on folks- at least give us a keyboard.
Buying One: The X2 has leaked out in both video and screenshot form, but still lacks a set release date. My guess? Sometime this June. Leaked price sheets indicate it will cost $199.
LG's Optimus 2X:
This "with Google" beauty was supposed to launch with Android 2.3. As of now, it only packs Android 2.2. The processor is a (now commonplace) dual-core 1 GHz Tegra 2. It can record 1080p video and display it on a 4" WVGA screen. There's only 512 MB of RAM though. Early reviews describe it as solid but uninspiring. Brand new LG Battery in australia.
Buying One: You can get one now from T-Mobile for $199.
The EVO 3D:
This smartphone is at the tip of HTC's latest spearhead. If there's a smartphone more perfectly placed to grab attention and attract early adopters, I haven't seen it. The Evo 3D has everything we've seen earlier on this list- a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and a 4.3" display and the ability to handle 1080p video. It also happens to support glasses-free display of 720p 3D video. And 3D recording with dual-5 MP cameras.
Buying One: The Evo 3D will be available "soon" from Sprint. It will launch with Android 2.3.
So Which Should YOU Buy?
Options are great- but you want pointed buying advice. If you want the most powerful Android smartphone around, go with the Galaxy S 2. It has an unmatched build quality, superior graphics performance and 16 GB of on-board storage to boot. Samsung can be unreliable about 'future-proofing' their devices with regular updates. If this is a concern for you, I'd recommend the HTC Sensation as an alternate.
But if you're an early adopter- someone with a lust for technology and a need to have the shiniest possible gear on their person at any given time- the Evo 3D is your phone. Embrace the impractical future.



HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, today unveiled the HTC Desire S and HTC Wildfire S, available exclusively on the Telstra Next G® network.

“Australians are displaying an incredible appetite for adopting smartphones. HTC is committed to offering strong alternatives to Australian consumers looking for a smartphone to suit their individual lifestyles,” said Ben Hodgson, Country...

Motorola Droid X2 Sports Android 2.3 and Tegra 2 Chip


Verizon Wireless is preparing to launch the Motorola Droid X2, the successor to its super popular Android handset, with the latest Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" build for smartphones.
Droid Life got the scoop on the device, which it said was rolling out May 26 with promotional pictures showing a device that looks every bit the same as the Droid X that launched last July. The original handset ran Android 2.1 (later upgrade to Android 2.2) and was fitted with a 1GHz processor, 4.3-inch screen, 8 megapixel rear camera, HD video recording at 720p HD and an HDMI out port to let people play their video shoots on a TV or computer screen.
The refresh boasts 4.3-inch qHD screen with a resolution of 960 by 540, is powered by a 1GHz, dual-core Tegra 2 processor, uses an 8 megapixel rear camera, and provides720p video capture and 1080p video output.
Update: The new Droid X2 will offer 8GB of internal storage, an 8GB preinstalled SD card and a 1540mAh motorola battery. eWEEK originally reported a 16GB preinstalled SD card. No pricing has been made available and Verizon has not confirmed the launch for eWEEK. While the hardware and a lot of the utilities appear the same, the key difference is Gingerbread, which includes a new keyboard, faster performance, augmented text editing and NFC (near field communications) support.
Droid Life said the Droid X2 was due last week, but got pushed back after Verizon pushed back the Samsung Droid Charge, which launched May 14 for $299.99 on contract.
eWEEK has tested Gingerbread on both Google and T-Mobile's Samsung Nexus S and Sprint's Nexus S 4G and found the new OS to be an incremental improvement. Brand new HP Pavilion dv6000 Battery.
Whereas the speed bump from Android 2.1 to Android 2.2 seemed great, the difference appears negligible in Gingerbread. Dual-core processors may buoy the operating system.
Gingerbread may be a nice draw for some, but it will be tough for the Droid X2 to enjoy the same success as its predecessor, which was a uniquely styled phone whose only comparable rival at that time was Sprint's HTC Evo 4G. The Droid X was sold out for weeks last summer. High quality Dell XPS M1330 Battery.
Conversely, the Droid X2 will be competing with the HTC ThunderBolt 4G and Droid Charge on Verizon, not to mention the Nexus S 4G on Sprint. Since all of those are 4G-enabled, speed may win out over the traditional 3G in the Droid X2, unless Verizon sells it as a discount.
For $149 on contract, a Droid X2 could sell quite well against its speedier 4G rivals

Hands-On With 4G Samsung Mammoth Android Phone Review


When it comes to smartphones, how big is too big?
Samsung obviously isn't preoccupied with that question, as evidenced by its latest Android device release, the Infuse 4G.
As soon as you pop the phone out of the box, the first thing you notice is its size. The thing is massive. It needs to be, though, in order to support its 4.5-inch super AMOLED display. Save for the first Dell Streak smartphone-cum-tablet hybrid — whose screen is a whopping 5-inches — the Infuse is packing one of the largest screens we've seen on a smartphone.
This is a good thing. I watched the HD trailer for Cowboys and Aliens on the little silver screen and could practically feel the trail dust on my face. The picture quality was excellent, and as bright as can be. I did wish the Infuse came with a little kickstand for my movie watching, something akin to what the HTC Thunderbolt has on its back. With this phone's slick edges, it won't be very stable propped up on my airplane tray table during a long flight.
After seeing how well the Dell inspiron 9400 battery screen handled the trailer, I could see myself using Samsung's Media Hub store, which lets you download from a library of thousands of HD movies. To sweeten the pot, Samsung throws in a $25 credit with the phone, which is enough to rent about 6 films.


Size has its disadvantages. After sitting down with the phone in my pocket, it felt a bit like a splint trying to straighten my upper thigh. And I don't even wear skinny jeans.
But for being such a fatty in pure surface area, the thickness of the phone is surprisingly svelte. Samsung boasts that the Infuse is the "thinnest 4G smartphone out there today." It's light, too. Airy, not terribly bulky, if not a little too light. I personally prefer a bit more heft in my device — one of my biggest complaints with its Nexus S brother was the light, plasticky build that made me feel that I'd break it if I wasn't delicate enough.
The removable plastic backing that protects the phone's innards is thin and flimsy. It practically peels off the back of the handset, and I was worried I'd snap it in half while I took it off to look under the hood.
Samsung included a few perks that I don't often see come with other phones. The Infuse comes with a 2-GB micro SD card, saving you a trip to Radio Shack. It also comes with a microSD adapter card, so if you've got a regular-sized card reader built into your laptop, transferring files is easy as pie.
An issue: The phone Dell latitude e6400 battery doesn't have HDMI-out on the handset itself (Samsung probably ran out of room, being its "thinnest" phone to date), which is a bummer. Samsung remedies this, however, with an included MHL adapter. With a screen this big, you may wonder if you need anything else, but you might find times when an HDTV is easier to watch.
Like every other 2011 Android smartphone release, the phone doesn't ship with the latest version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), but instead runs 2.2 (Froyo). I've almost ceased to mention this in reviews, since it's been the case in every new phone we're seeing. Still, the fact that it's not on this phone while it is on Samsung's nearly six-month old Nexus S (which was launched in conjunction with Google) is disheartening, to say the least.


Listen up, bird-chucking addicts: The Infuse 4G comes bundled with a copy of Angry Birds, complete with hidden level only available to Infuse owners. Whoop.
Both the 8-megapixel back-facing camera dell latitude d620 battery and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera take clear, crisp photos, which can be auto-uploaded to an AT&T-hosted online locker for storage or sharing, which I found pretty cool.
Overall, Samsung has created a media hub, as much as a smartphone, in the Infuse 4G. All of the included attachments practically beg for you to use it as such, and from my initial tests, it delivers.
As for the phone's performance on AT&T's network, that's something to be saved for a longer review.
Beginning May 15, the phone will be available on AT&T's HSPA+ 4G network for $200 with a two-year contract.

HTC Thunderbolt First Impressions: Verizon First 4G LTE Phone


The HTC Thunderbolt is an Android-powered phone, and also the first phone to use Verizon Wireless lighting fast 4G LTE network. In this article we are going to go over a first impression look of the HTC Thunderbolt from verizon. The Thunderbolt is another android phone running on Froyo, Google 's Android Operating System 2.2, but should be able to receive the honeycomb update to 3.0 this summer. With all these new features this makes the thunderbolt one of the fastest Android phones currently on the market. This smart phone has a 1400mAh battery, which is a bit smaller than many other smart phones, including other HTC phones. This is shocking and confusing since the 4g network is suppose to be a battery hog.
HTC Thunderbolt is HTC's entrance onto Verizon's 4G LTE network. This phone is a screaming fast 4G handset considering it only has a 1 Ghz single core processor. The Thunderbolt also has a bigger screen than the iPhone , however, as it sports an impressive 4.3 inches. It was announced at the last CES in Januray of 2011
Whats nice about this phone is that is has a very refined, stylish-yet-businesslike design. Htc thunderbolt is a smart phone that has a large selection of accessories to choose from.

HTC thunderbolt is also being sold by stores other than verizon, but the ones I spoke with are saying the phone is hard to keep in stock. Verizon has been no help to Apple with the Thunderbolt outselling the iPhone4 alone there. The Camera on this phone is also a 8 Megapixel camera, which is nice to see phone companies not cutting corners and taking a step back with technology.
HTC Thunderbolt is a smart phone which has a fantastic touch screen. Htc thunderbolt is undoubtedly the fastest smart phone we've tested when it comes to mobile data. Htc thunderbolt is here, and it didn't come quietly. Htc thunderbolt is getting rave reviews and rightfully so.

Verizon has said its LTE network delivers average downlink speeds of 5-12 Mbps and uplink speeds of 2-5 Mbps. Even though these type of speeds are only going to be found in areas where you have 4G coverage.

Pictures of Verizon HTC Thunderbolt surface online


Smartphone enthusiasts were abuzz on Tuesday as pictures of the HTC Thunderbolt 4G were leaked online. A dozen images of the Andoid handset, which is Verizon branded, appeared on the blog Droid Life, giving fans a sneak peak at the yet-to-be-released device.

Verizon will officially unveil their latest innovation at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on January 6 in Las Vegas. Students at colleges and universities throughout the country will be hanging on every news report that comes out of the CES, which is an annual showcaseSmartphone enthusiasts were abuzz on Tuesday as pictures of the HTC Thunderbolt 4G were leaked online. A dozen images of the Andoid handset, which is Verizon branded, appeared on the blog Droid Life, giving fans a sneak peak at the yet-to-be-released device of the latest products that will soon hit the market.

Smartphones, in particular, are popular among individuals who are receiving their college education. According to a study by the University of Colorado School of Journalism and Mass Communication, approximately 53 percent of mobile-phone users on U.S. campuses own a smartphone, compared to 47 percent who own a feature phone. Researchers classified a smartphone as a mobile device that offers advanced capabilities, such as Web access, e-mail and applications that are run by third parties.

The team of researchers also questioned college students about their smartphone use. Approximately 93 percent of respondents said that they use their device while riding in a bus, train or car, while 82 percent said they utilize it for school-related tasks, such as accessing information about college courses. About 77 percent said they use their smartphones when they first wake up in the morning, while 72 percent use it before they go to bed.

For students who are busy balancing college classes and social activities, most individuals use their smartphones to receive news updates. The University of Colorado survey found that 84 percent of students seek out breaking news information through their phone, while 82 percent said they check the weather forecast. About 45 percent look for business and technology updates, and about 44 percent search for sports news on their smartphones.

According to The Daily Princetonian, scholars at Princeton University have developed smartphone applications that are designed specifically for college students. Earlier this year, individuals who attend the Ivy League school developed Fountainhop and Scoop features for smartphone users on campus. These apps provide students with the latest happenings, such as parties, study breaks and impromptu campus events, according to the news provider.

The media outlet reported that Fountainhop was initially developed by students at Stanford University, and it has since been adopted at Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley.

Next-generation 4G data networks


If you've ever wished your cell phone would load Web pages faster, you're in luck. All four major U.S. carriers have begun rolling out next-generation 4Gdata networks, at least in major cities. These networks, while utilizing different technologies, all promise sustained, real-world download speeds in excess of 5 megabits per second. That's roughly a five-fold increase over what existing 3G networks are capable of.
It should not come as a surprise that not everyone agrees on the exact definition of "4G." Worse, the ITU, the global body in charge of setting wireless network standards, didn't help the situation when it declared that all current wireless technologies aren't actually 4G. (The ITU has since reversed course and declared that LTE, WiMAX, and HSPA+ can all be branded 4G.)
There are several kinds of 4G. Sprint threw down with Clearwire's WiMAX 802.16e network, which was first out of the gate stateside. Originally branded Xohm, WiMAX-compatible cellular USB modems on Sprint launched in late 2008. But actual 4G-capable smartphones didn't arrive until mid-2010. Arguably the best-known WiMAX smartphone is the HTC EVO 4G, a fast Android device with a 4.3-inch touch screen, a very slim form factor, and HTC's beautiful Sense UI layer. Fire up YouTube, and it kicks into an HD mode that displays crystal clear, widescreen video that's much sharper than the pixelated streams you'd see on most 3G handsets.
Sprint also sells other WiMAX-capable cell phones. Two examples are the Samsung Epic 4G, a unique version of the popular Galaxy S with WiMAX capability and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and the HTCEVO Shift 4G, a slightly smaller and less powerful iteration of the EVO 4G, albeit with an added hardware keyboard as well.
WiMAX is fast, but it's not perfect. In our tests, we've found that it has trouble penetrating the outer walls of buildings, at least compared to EV-DO (3G CDMA) devices on Sprint's network. More significantly—and this is a problem throughout the industry, regardless of the 4Gtechnology used—Clearwire is still building out its WiMAX network. Major destinations like San Francisco and Bridgeport, CT only came on line at the end of 2010. For now, expect little to no WiMAX coverage in most suburban and rural parts of the U.S.
Another major 4G option is LTE. AT&T and Verizon are backing this standard in the U.S.—and with approximately 190 million subscribers between the two carriers, it's a significant undertaking. Verizon unveiled its first batch of LTE devices, which includes the HTC Thunderbolt and the dual-core Motorola Droid Bionic 4G. These phones will use LTE for data, but still make voice calls over the existing CDMA network. The first voice-capable LTE phones (VoLTE), which promise much clearer call quality, won't arrive until later.
But leave it to the upstart MetroPCS, of all carriers, to release the first two LTE-compatible devices (on MetroPCS's admittedly very small LTE network): the Samsung Galaxy Indulge smartphone, and the Samsung Craft SCH-R900 feature phone. For its part, Clearwire is already testing a form of 4G LTE that should prove faster than Verizon Wireless's network, as well as its own existing WiMAX network. In fact, there are some indications—including directly from Sprint CEO Dan Hesse—that Sprint may eventually begin abandoning WiMAX as early mid-2011 in favor of an LTE network deployment.
Then there is HSPA+, which is essentially a three-and-a-half-G version of existing 3G HSDPA networks. T-Mobile is hard at work updating its 3G network to HSPA+. AT&T is also building out HSPA+ as a stopgap ahead of LTE, but is being cagey about exactly how fast its version is. While HSPA+'s theoretical maximum speeds are lower, for now, than that of WiMAX and LTE, real world speeds are proving quite similar, at least at the very beginning.

Android Apps And Games Of 2012


Android apps come in all shapes and sizes - literally.

Unlike iOS applications, which are basically created for two form factors, Android apps need to be developed with dozens (if not hundreds) of device-types in mind. This is on top of the inconsistent operating system releases still mucking things up. While all of this fragmentation is a headache for developers, ignoring a platform with 50 percent market share would ultimately lead to their peril.

The best Android apps are thus the ones that can both push the technological envelope while also remaining accessible to the vast majority of users. This is no easy feat.

We divided our list of the best 30 Android apps into four distinct categories. The top ten apps come from third-party developers, and, if not exclusive to Android, were created primarily for the platform. Additional sections include the best new or significantly updated apps from Google, as well as the best apps and games that appeared first on iOS but later arrived to Android in 2011.

As is the case with our lists of best iOS apps and games of 2011, hundreds of additional titles are worthy of consideration. Our top 30 showcase the growth and maturation of Android apps over the last year. They are also worthy downloads.

1. Any.DO: To Do List | Task List
Funded by Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, Any.DO is the best productivity and to-do application tailored specifically for Android devices. The app's elegant interface is optimized to limit actual typing through voice-driven commands. Users can swipe each task when complete, and shake their phones to clear them from the screen. The app also offers (mostly) seamless integration with Google accounts.

2. Lightbox - Photos & Effects
More than just an Instagram for Android, Lightbox offers features like photo journals and the ability to arrange pictures by personal timelines that make it unique and, to some, indispensable. The app's stunning visual display and compatibility on multiple Android devices set the standard moving forward for photo-sharing apps on the platform.

3. Amazon MP3
Along with Google Music (see below), Amazon MP3 is the best way for an Android smartphone and tablet owner to kick an iTunes habit. The app provides access to a library of nearly 20 million songs, 5GB of free storage, and reliable offline listening. Subscriptions to Amazon's Cloud Drive service start at a reasonable $20/year for 20GB of storage, but you can store as much of your own music as you like with that subscription.

4. AirDroid
Android devices offer so many customization features that sometimes using a larger screen, mouse and full-sized keyboard will help you get the most out of your smartphone or tablet device. This free app lets users operate their smartphones from a PC with a Wi-Fi connection. Additionally, AirDroid emphasizes privacy protection with password changes for each use.

5. SwiftKey X Keyboard
After launching a beta app last year, SwiftKey X arrived on Android smartphones and tablets in 2011. The app has larger keys as well as superior word and sentence prediction algorithms than what is typically found on Androids. SwiftKey also learns from previously typed emails and messages, and offers three color schemes to simplify the process and brighten things up.

6. Skitch
Acquired by Evernote, Skitch lets users annotate photos with sketches, images and words. The app has dead simple editing tools and the ability for users to draw with multi-colored crayons. Skitch is a great app for kids in addition to serving as a functional and unique photo-sharing service.

7. BlueStacks Cloud Connect
While still in Alpha, BlueStacks is demonstrating how Android applications can run on Windows-based PCs. The Android app works in concert with the Windows-based BlueStacks App Player to run mobile applications on PCs. The venture-backed company and application, which has attracted more than 500,000 early adopters since launch, expects to debut a Mac OS version in 2012.

8. Qello
Available as separate applications for Android smartphones and tablets, Qello offers a great catalog of high definition concerts (mostly rock, but with other genres sprinkled in). Users can sample the 500+ titles for free, or lease any of them on a weekly ($1.99) or monthly basis ($4.99).

9. AccuWeather for Honeycomb
Developed specifically for Honeycomb-based tablet devices, this all-inclusive weather application showcases the beauty and utility of Android on larger form factors. The Lifestyle section, which informs users on things like whether it is a good day for biking or bad day for allergies, is a nice humanized touch.

10. HD Widgets
Android is all about customization, and there is no better and more comprehensive widget app available than this one. Optimized for Android tablets and smartphones, HD Widgets is great for Android experts and first-timers alike. Users will also appreciate the "fanatical" customer service of the developers.

Here are the five best Android apps developed by Google that were released or received significant updates in 2011.

11. Google Currents
As long as Flipboard remains exclusive to iOS devices, this new release from Google serves as the premier news reader on Android smartphones and tablets. More of a fast and elegant aggregator than social magazine, Google Currents benefits from an organized layout and dead simple third-party publisher platform. There is also -- shockingly -- nice integration with Google+, including curated content from the likes of Robert Scoble and Guy Kawasaki.

12. Google+
Google became a relevant player in social networking this year with the successful launch of Google+. While the service is also available as an iPhone app as well as a web app through BlackBerry, Windows and Symbian platforms, Google understandably treats its own platform as first among equals. Check-ins for business, for instance, rolled out first on the Android app.

13. Google Maps
A November update to this trailblazing application introduced indoor mapping functionality to mobile devices. Google Maps 6.0 helps users more easily navigate within airports, shopping malls and other locations where GPS technology is spotty.

14. Google Docs
While no mobile application matches the utility of Google Docs on a desktop or laptop, this official version for Android is pretty close. If you're a hardcore Google Docs user, this app will help you break free from your desk and still read and edit docs and spreadsheets on the fly.

15. Google Music
Like Amazon MP3 cited above, Google Music is a way for Android users to comfortably cut the cord (or cloud) on iTunes (at least on their mobile devices). The app lets users store up to 20,000 songs for free in the cloud, with a portion available for offline access.

These next 10 apps were initially released for iOS devices. They are included here for their utility, entertainment value and impact on the Android ecosystem.

16. Price Check by Amazon
When Amazon unveiled this price-comparison app to Android devices just before Black Friday, the company's retail Death Star became fully operational. Sure, Price Check was available to iPhone owners a year earlier, and there are similar apps across all major mobile platforms. But having an Android app gives Amazon critical mass in this category, and allows the company to (again) upend physical retail as we know it. This includes offering discounts to consumers on their phones during the point of comparison.

17. Netflix
There were a lot of things that Netflix did horribly wrong in 2011. Releasing a killer Android app for smartphones and tablet devices was not one of them. As Android tablets become ready for prime time and more plausibly compete against the iPad, entertainment apps like Netflix will flourish.

18. SoundTracking
The most innovative music detection and discovery app of the year finally arrived to Android in December. SoundTracking not only identifies a song a user is listening to, but shares it with Facebook, Twitter and foursquare friends and followers. The advantage of the Android app, relative to the iOS version which launched earlier this year, is that users with Spotify and Rdio can listen to entire tracks (as opposed to 30-second snippets from iTunes).

19. Hipmunk Flight Search
Hipmunk differentiates from the run-of-the-mill flight search applications by predicting how painful your traveling might be. The app's "Agony Index" takes into account factors beyond price including flight duration, Wi-Fi access and other variables. Once users choose the least painful flight, the app accommodates direct booking and provides access to third-party services.

20. Fooducate Shopping Scanner
This app translates nutritional information found on food packaging into plain English, and offers a letter grade as to how healthy or harmful an item can be. The app offers comprehensive coverage of both mainstream brands and niche delicacies via the scanning of barcodes. Best of all? The app suggests healthier, similar alternatives to the worst offenders.

21. Marvel Comics
Reading classic comics within this app works on virtually any size Android screen -- which is no easy feat. Marvel Comics also offers panel-by-panel viewing that features beautiful art and more legible word balloons. While most titles require a subscription, there are an ample amount of classic comics available for free.

22. Syncplicity
For digitally promiscuous users who store and share files on multiple devices and operating systems powered by Android, iOS and Windows, Syncplicity is a useful way to manage libraries found within all of them. Unlike many cloud-based alternatives, Syncplicity uses encryption to secure files.

23. Starbucks
After launching initially on iOS and BlackBerry smartphones, the official Starbucks app finally arrived on Android earlier this year. Better late than never. The app lets users manage their Starbucks Cards and purchase coffee and the like at nearly 7,000 U.S. locations.

24. LinkedIn
After what seemed like an eternity in beta, LinkedIn finally launched an Android app ready for prime time in the spring. While not perfect, the LinkedIn app is a much better alternative than the company's more limited mobile site. Finally, this indispensable professional networking service found a full-time gig on Android.

25. Path
A significant December update to this social blogging app on Android and iOS devices served as an early holiday present to its passionate and vocal adherents. Beyond sharing photos, users can now tell the world about what music they are listening to and other activities they are doing. The app's new design and "Automatic" feature, which recognizes when users deviate from routine schedules, also separate Path from the pack.

And finally, we present the five best games to arrive to Android devices in 2011. Notably, they all first appeared on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

26. Cut the Rope
While not a household name like Angry Birds, Cut the Rope is among the most addictive and popular mobile games of all time. The graphics and music are superb, and Cut the Rope is optimized and plays very well on larger Android tablet devices. This is another multi-platform grand slam for (Angry Birds) publisher Chillingo.

27. World of Goo
One of the most original and well-crafted physics-based puzzle games around finally made its way to Android devices in late November. Originally an indie hit on PCs, World of Goo is a construction game in which users must connect goo balls together to build structures so that other goo balls can get to the end of each stage. The abstract art and imagery alone make it worth the five bucks to download.

28. Where's My Water?
A clever and addictive puzzle game by Disney, Where's My Water? combines whimsical design with killer gameplay. Players are tasked with keeping a sewer-dwelling alligator named Swampy clean and pristine while guiding him through urban terrain. Easier said than done, particularly with Swampy's alligator buddies standing in the way.

29. Plants vs. Zombies
This classic title from PopCap, which was acquired by Electronic Arts in July, first came to Android earlier this year via the Amazon App Store. It was sold exclusively on Amazon until early December. Fans of the cartoony tower defense game will enjoy tapping into Plants vs. Zombies on Android devices.

30. Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD
The best racing game available for Android devices, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD combines plenty of cars and game modes -- including a psychedelic "Adrenaline" boost -- with superlative visuals and gameplay. This one deserves the checkered flag.

Android App Developer Tips


Android App Developer Tips: Do's And Don'ts In Making Android Apps

• DO keep the user in mind when designing your app. Many an android app developer has made the mistake of developing an app based solely on what they think should work and not thinking how other people will actually use it in real life. And the funny thing is, it's not that hard to find out how the end user feels. You can conduct surveys for example, do some beta testing or get your app evaluated by an app review blog.

• DO incorporate scalability and integration in your app. Extensibility should always be taken into consideration in your app's design, especially if you are making the first version. Sadly, this is often overlooked as many mobile apps today are developed under a brief time period in order to take advantage of a current need or trend. But without scalability, this could lead to a lot of re-configuring once a new version or functionality is released.

• DO be careful in making color choices. Android phones today are capable of displaying a wide spectrum of colors, but this does not mean you should choose any color for your app. Keep in mind that Android phones are design to be used almost anywhere, so your app's design should incorporate colors that work in environments with various lighting and displays.

• DON'T stick with just a single screen size. The Android platform can be found in different kinds of mobile devices, so by designing your app around a specific screen size will not properly scale in other screen sizes. So make sure to give some thought on how your app will look as it grows or shrinks on different Android devices.

• DON'T design around a specific form factor. An Android app developer that designs an app that's specific to a touchscreen device, for instance, will have a hard time integrating it to Android phones that use navigation controls instead of a touchscreen. Visualize how your app will work across different Android devices and make sure to leave room for other form factors.

• DON'T do too much. Forget about trying to make your app do everything. Instead, focus on specific uses and match that with an intuitive user interface. There are a lot of success stories in the Android app developer community of apps with a narrow focus. And they succeed because they are good at doing that one thing.

New Android 5.0


A complete and harmonious combination of two substances can create a complete and beautiful result. In like manner, the natural sweetness of Android 3.x Honeycomb and the crispy layers of Android 2.3 Gingerbread have resulted in a new, tastier treat for Android smartphones and Android tablets--Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Google has been aiming to unite the multiple Android versions into just one version so that one and only one Android runs on whatever device--be it an Android smartphone, Android tablet, Android portable media player, Android TV, Android watch, or wherever else the little green robot can make waves.

What glad tidings does Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) bring to its users? What better experiences can we expect from it? Read on to know more about how Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is being true to Google's description of it: "the best Android we've ever made yet."

Multi-tasking Button

Android 4.0 includes a virtual button that allows you to browse and instantly switch to apps you recently used. The list displays thumbnail images of apps--instead of just icons--so you can see which part of the apps are currently working in the background.

And, if you want to throw away or discard an item on the list, simply flick the thumbnail in order to remove it from the list.

Instant Screenshots with Button Press

There are many instances in which you'd like to share to others what is currently displayed on your screen. There are also times when you just need to save a screenshot for later use. In previous versions of Android, you could take screenshots by installing apps for that purpose. In Android 4.0, it's a built-in feature.

By holding the Power and Volume Down buttons together, your Android smartphone lets you capture screen images instantly.

Improved Notification Bar

There are several improvements that Google has done to the Notification Bar in Android 4.0. For instance, it can now be pulled down from the Lock Screen. Another is that you can discard items from the list of notifications by simply flicking an item to the right. This means that you can remove items on the Notification Bar one by one.

In previous versions of Android, it's either you clear all notifications with one tap or you leave all of them untouched.

The Notification Bar no longer shows a grid layout of recently used apps. Instead, in Ice Cream Sandwich, those apps are shown as a vertical-scrolling strip of app thumbnails. You can also directly control music playback right on the Notification Bar.

Improved Text and Voice Input

The stock keyboard in Android 4.0 has been given more love. It is now faster and more responsive compared to previous versions of Android. The suggestion strip is more accurate now and also includes an in-line spell checker. With one tap, you can select suggested words or add new words to the dictionary.

Copy-and-paste functionality has also been made easier. Just tap and hold down on the selected word, and drag the handles to highlight the selected words. Then you can select "Copy and Paste" from the popup menu, or simply drag the highlighted chunk of text to wherever you wish to insert it.

Google has also incorporated voice-to-text input in Ice Cream Sandwich. Just speak, and the phone converts your spoken words into text. It's a great way to easily and effortlessly "type" text. With Ice Cream Sandwich, voice input is more accurate and can also translate expressions into symbols.

It also accounts for pauses, so you don\u2019t have to press anything while thinking of an appropriate response.

Face Unlock

Say goodbye to passwords, PIN codes, and patterns. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has personalized phone unlocking much further. With the new Face Unlock feature, an Android smartphone or tablet can now recognize the face of its owner.

Just by focusing your face clearly on the secondary front-facing camera of your device, you can unlock your phone instantly. No typing needed. No need to remember passwords. Just look into the camera and let the device recognize you.

Data Usage Monitoring

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich also includes a new graphical display of the data your Android phone is using. You can set warnings for exceeding data usage limits, as well as set how much background data each app can use. Users can have more control over their Android device with this neat option in ICS.

Android 4.0 also comes with improved apps, which can be categorized into three: the core apps (i.e., Google mobile apps such as Android Browser, Gmail, and Calendar), Photos, and People.

Android Beam

Support for Near Field Communication (NFC) is baked into Android 4.0, and Google has made sure that Ice Cream Sandwich has a ready app to leverage the technology.

Called Android Beam, the app revolutionizes the way that people share files and data among one another. With NFC and Android Beam, one can send a file to another user simply by bringing two Android phones close to each other and tapping the phones against each other. Any file can be shared in this manner--photos, documents, maps, apps, bookmarks, and so on.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich surely packs a fresh new look and exciting new features that will truly make your device perform better as a smartphone. With Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich soon replacing the older versions of Android on recent Android smartphones, these new features will eventually start a new wave of more convenient and more efficient use of Android smartphones and Android tablets.

HTC Android 2.2 update


Vodafone gave TechRadar more planned deadline 88880002 HTC Desire Android 2.2 upgrade, as well as speaking about the last 360 Android 2.1 update.
Most popular elements of the letter sent to TechRadar that Android 2.2 upgrade should be with us within 7-10 days and 360 of which were added in the last update will be removed.
We have listened to customer feedback on the number of points throughout the last 360 Android 2.1 update and made some changes to the off plan, a spokesman for Vodafone told TechRadar.
Android 2.2 update for HTC Vodafone users will be Desire based on the open version of the HTC software market, and we customize it to ensure ournetwork settings are installed.
will be with you when the delivery date for Android 2.2 update is finished, but, after examination, we hope that time is 7-10 days.

360 range
spokesman also confirmed, Vodafone customers will be the choice over whether to install the upgrade to 360 services when the Android 2.2 version is available:
For customers who downloaded Update for the last 360 Android 2.1, we can confirm that Android 2.2 update removed from the 360 applications and leave the home page and bookmarks with your current settings.
Customers who want to to gain access to 360 services will be able to do it once Android 2.2 compatible version is available, and in the meantime, you may now download the software, as well as 360 people from the Android Marketplace.
We plan to to 360 applications available in a separate update HTC Desire at a later date, giving customers a choice to download it.

htc android


How do you feel if a clone of your Android-powered mobile phone is created by mining data from your mobile phone? Not very pleasant to contemplate, Right? A loophole in the latest HTC Android phones can theoretically make this possible. Android Police has found that HTC's software installed on phones such as EVO 3D, EVO 4G, Thunderbolt, EVO Shift, among others exposes the phone's data to 3rd-party applications.

HTC applications causing the vulnerability

The culprit here is the HTC application "HtcLoggers.apk" that collects and stores the user's private, confidential, and technical data. The application can supply all these information to anyone who opens a network port on the phone. The permission "android.permission.INTERNET" is called by an app to gain access to internet; the permission granted to the app not only allows it access to the internet, but also allows access to the user's private information logged by "HtcLoggers.apk".

The information that could be exposed include:

Call logs
SMS logs
Email addresses
Last known network and GPS locations
Phone numbers
System logs
Memory info
CPU info
List of installed apps
Battery info and status

HTC also installed androidvncserver.apk on the Android OS installations, which is basically a remote access server. Once internet access is secured both these apps can work in tandem: HtcLoggers.apk can collect the data and android.permission.INTERNET can ship it to a remote server. Although this is a speculative scenario at present, it cannot be gainsaid that a real threat exists.

HTC software fix

HTC has said a software patch is in testing and will be shortly pushed to the affected Android devices. The software will be sent over-the-air and users will be advised to download and install it. In the statement HTC said "... there is a vulnerability that could potentially be exploited by a malicious 3rd-party application ... HTC is working very diligently to quickly release a security update". Meanwhile, HTC has urged users to use caution when downloading, installing, and updating applications from untrusted sources.

Impact on Android development ecosystem

Although this is primarily an HTC issue, the Android development community is vexed that users may misconstrue this as an issue with the Android mobile applications software. Google does not control the development market and it is suspected that a small percentage of apps are malware or spyware. The above issue may not affect the Android developers. It is pertinent to note here the Android platform provides a rich security model that enables the user to grant or deny capabilities to an app. Users are advised discretion when downloading, installing, and running apps.

The future of Android development

Android follows an open architecture system where anyone can add anything which compromises the overall experience of Android mobile applications. On the other hand, a closed architecture will allow for a consistent and secure development environment. Android development is an open source resource available for free use and many developers outsource Android development to 3rd parties or decide to offshore Android development. Hence, inevitably it is constantly at risk of exploitation by unscrupulous Android developers. It is hoped that the HTC Android phone security loophole is patched up soon and Android mobile applications continue its impressive story of incredible development.

Internal factors that affect organization are strengths and weakness, and external factors are opportunities and threats. The SWOT analysis provides information that is helpful in matching the firm's resources and a capability to the competitive environment in which it operates.

Strengths- Motorola Company is the leading provider of wireless handsets, communication and broadband systems. It is also the only sole supplier of iDEN network infrastructure to Sprint Nextel. According to the research that was conducted by ABI on IP-STB market Motorola emerged as a strong and prominent player. Motorola already had a good pedigree with STB. It managed acquired Kreaatel which is an IP-STB leader; as a result it gained greater entrée into European market and outside North America base. Motorola Company has also proven technologies from its own and others video platforms.

Opportunities- Motorola’s brands are well placed in the market; they have strong promotional strategies by using different tools, and their willingness to take risks through product innovations. Motorola has been involved with the ongoing rollout of Telco TV services by Verizon and this has helped it to be well positioned in the rapidly growing market. Principal analyst Michael Arden states that Motorola has some products that can help it to get into hybrid market more easily than their competitors. From 1967 Motorola has been able to expand to many countries including France, Taiwan, Japan ,Italy, South Korea, United Kingdom, Hong Kong and many more other countries where it has continued to penetrate in new markets..

Weaknesses- Overall quality of its operations products and business practices sometimes make customers to be unhappy, some of their products have high number of defects, Low employee education, training and motivation. Cellular business of Motorola has gone down making the company to lose most of their prestigious customers around the world. Motorola's phone network equipment business also suffered declining sales and orders.

Threats- Competition from Japan where they have flooded the market with high quality products which are cheap, Lack of government protection against outside competitors and Market sharing with foreign competitors. Motorola is not the only company in wireless industry but there are other companies like ADB which has very significant opportunities due to a very strong product lineup in the hybrid IP-DTT STB arena. This company has been getting very good attraction in Western Europe where it has established a market niche. This is a major threat to Motorola. Another threat facing Motorola is how to outdo their competitor Sagem Communication which was ranked high in the market in France because of its strong position in the market.
