Their mobile business is now bringing in more than all of Google’s businesses combined. Should Google be concerned, I think so.
This is something Google couldn’t do with their Nexus 4, perhaps the next Nexus smartphone will have LTE support?
What are people doing with their Android tablets, sitting on them?
How did this even happen?! Just terrible!
Finally, a decent 4’ Android phone and it’s stock Android too!
Facebook Home, their new skin for Android looks really neat. It puts your friends’ FB content front and center, great for the person that lives in the Facebook ecosystem. Chat heads brings iOS-like messaging to Android but is implemented to be so much more practical. This is one feature I wish I could have on iOS. They are partnering with manufactures to integrate FB Home into specific handsets, but it will also be available as a download that replaces your default launcher for select HTC and Samsung phones. The HTC first will be the first handset that comes with Facebook Home and the responsiveness of the device looks surprisingly iOS-like.
Makes sense, it directly affects what makes them money.
Using your tablet to make the occasional VOIP call comes in handy, but do we want it to be our Smartphone too? and one that is designed to be held up to our ear?
The newly announced HTC One looks stunning. They’ve taken lots of cues from the iPhone and have created a very compelling offering. This is the first time I have been genuinely excited about an Android phone.
Apple and Samsung ran away with all the mobile handset profits last quarter, everyone one else either broke even or lost lost money.
I can’t remember the last time I heard an everyday consumer mention “Android.” It’s either “Galaxy” or “Droid.”
