Huawei to focus on Indian market in bid to topple Samsung and Apple
poniedziałek, 09 października 2017 16:00

Chinese manufacturers Huawei are set to focus on the Indian market, according to Huawei India's CEO, Jay Chen. The company has reportedly identified the Indian market as one with potential for improving its global market share. Huawei's growth has been nothing short of meteoric, with the company's strong grip on the Chinese market ensuring that it was able to it snatch a place as the second largest smartphone company in the world over giants Apple. That position will, of course, be duly returned in the coming months, as Apple's launch of the iPhones last month ensures that its market share surpasses Huawei's once again. While Huawei may be a top dog globally, its prowess in the Indian market is lackluster at best, with manufacturers like Samsung, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Lenovo having a pseudo-monopoly of the market.

BlackBerry Motion announced with 4000mAh battery, IP67 rating
poniedziałek, 09 października 2017 12:00

It's been an open secret that TCL has been working on another device for a fall launch. Dubbed 'Krypton', the phone was expected to eschew a hardware keyboard for a traditional 16:9 touchscreen, emphasizing BlackBerry's security prowess, stable software, and excellent battery life. That phone is now official. The phone will come to market as the BlackBerry Motion, and it resembles the popular KEYone in many ways. The 5.5-inch Full HD LCD display is pretty standard for this price range - the phone will debut for the equivalent of around $450 - while inside the Snapdragon 625 SoC is paired with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 4000mAh battery, and IP67 water resistance. There's also a 12MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a front fingerprint sensor.

Researchers invent breakthrough millimeter-wave circulator IC
poniedziałek, 09 października 2017 07:50

Columbia Engineering researchers, led by Harish Krishnaswamy, associate professor of electrical engineering, in collaboration with Professor Andrea Alu’s group from UT-Austin, continue to break new ground in developing magnet-free non-reciprocal components in modern semiconductor processes. At the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference in February, Krishnaswamy’s group unveiled a new device: the first magnet-free non-reciprocal circulator on a silicon chip that operates at millimeter-wave frequencies. Following up on this work, in a paper published in Nature Communications, the team demonstrated the physical principles behind the new device. Most devices are reciprocal: signals travel in the same manner in forward and reverse directions.

Adata sales soar on supply constraints, rising demand
niedziela, 08 października 2017 19:57

Adata Technology Co posted its strongest monthly revenue in almost four years, as a severe supply constraint coupled with improving demand boosted prices. Revenue last month surged 34.43 percent to NT$2.93 billion from NT$2.18 billion a year ago, the company said. On a monthly basis, it jumped 12.14 percent from NT$2.61 billion. DRAM modules accounted for 61.52 percent of the company’s revenue last month, NAND flash modules took 30 percent and other products made up the remainder. Revenue in the first nine months soared 51.89 percent annually to NT$24 billion, outpacing last year’s full-year sales of NT$23.22 billion. The supply crunch is likely to be exacerbated by rapidly rising DRAM demand from global data center operators, Adata said.

SanDisk releases high-speed SD cards that can survive extreme temperatures
niedziela, 08 października 2017 11:58

SanDisk has released a series of high-speed SD cards that work in extreme climates, as first spotted by AnandTech. The cards, known as the Industrial line, work from below sub-zero temperatures through to *way* beyond Australian-summer searing hot. The Industrial cards come in SD and microSD formats. They’re designed to be used in industrial scenarios like in surveillance cameras, drones, factory automation, and network equipment. They also feature fast read and write times, meaning they’re capable of high bit-rate video streaming for applications like surveillance. The Industrial card also has an automatic read refresh feature that protects files on the flash storage from becoming corrupt.
