Google’s acquisition of Motorola is finally fructifying for Android enthusiasts. Motorola has announced a new Android smart phone Moto G starting at $179 (US Price) for 8GB version and $199 for 16GB variant. It has interesting specifications considering its price and guarantee to get Android Kit Kat upgrade. It boasts of 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU by Snapdragon with 1 GB of RAM.
Full specifications: OS 4.3, Screen: 4.5 720HD 329 ppi, Processor: Snapdragon 400 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU,Battery: 2070 mAh, Camera: 5MP, 1.3MP Front. Price: 8GB model is $179 USD, 16GB model is $199 USD.
Moto G’s specifications may not be top notch but are really praiseworthy considering the value for money. Since it will get Android Kit-Kat upgrade, which is not a guzzler of high-end specs, this can be a real game changer.
Indians can also rejoice as it is slated to be launched in India in January next year. It will surely give a big headache to likes of Micromax and Karbonn considering the price and brand.
If priced suitably for Indian market, it will sell like hot cake here. Motorola had wind up its presence of India and it seems it is likely to come back with a bang.
It’s an interesting era for technology freaks. We are witnessing a rapid development in all around consumer and industrial technology field. Especially, Mobile technology has been quite hot for few years now. Apple, Google and Samsung have been clear winners with Microsoft and Blackberry lagging behind. However recent events may throw up some new winners next year.
Windows has been trying hard to push its mobile platform with its collaboration with Nokia. Nokia seems to be only OEM interested in Windows mobile after their own Symbian failed and they wrongly left Meego OS behind. The collaboration did not produce great numbers for both however at least kept the platform floating. Some of the devices in Lumia have done well especially the lowered priced ones like Lumia 620. However still they are behind Google and Apple which remain top two players.However MS is going to takeover Nokia’s mobile business soon and it throws up some interesting prospects.
Microsoft charges Nokia for using its mobile OS platform on their Lumia range. After its acquisition of Nokia, it can decrease the prices of newer and existing devices to make them more attractive for consumers. With time, they are likely to catch up in app department as well. We also know Windows mobile OS is not very hardware resource hungry and MS can offer some really inexpensive devices which can help it pose as a serious contender in developing markets like China and India.
Another interesting case is of Blackberry. They introduced BB OS 10 however their fortunes never changed for better. They were even up for sale but now it has been put up on hold. However they can still survive as a niche player. Their OS is considered to be more secured and they still have large government contracts in US and Canada. Their Enerprise email service and Messaging services are still top notch. I believe Blackberry will try to position as a niche service provider and try to stay relevant in Enterprise market. In the interim, they can try to work on latest OS and make it popular.
So we can see that bottom rung players still have a chance. However Android will still be the King. They have made their new version Android 4.4 KitKat less resource hungry and targeting for next billion devices. It can be run easily on devices having memory as low as 512 MB. This will allow lesser known brands like Xiomi and Micromax to reduce their cost and compete on even footing with the King Samsung. Samsung is likely to be challenged by these contenders in developing markets with greater force.
Then we have upcoming Linux based platform like Mozilla and Ubuntu which have earned a fair share of press this year and are likely to come up with more device ideas next year. Hence we are going to see a lot of action ! Fasten your seat belts and enjoy.
दुनिया एक मेला हैं,हम इसकी भीड़ का एक हिस्सा
चाहे तो इसकी भीड़ मैं खो जाओ
चाहे तो इससे हटकर दिखलाओ.
चाहे तो इसके इतिहास मैं कही खो जाओ
चाहे तो इतिहास का एक सुनहरा पल बन जाओ.
चाहे तो आगे बढ़कर स्वयं को पहचान लो
चाहे तोह अपनी पहचान भुलाकर
ऐसे ही मिट जाओ .
चाहे तो इसके गर्भ मैं समां जाओ
चाहे तो अपनी माँ की कोख
का क़र्ज़ चूका जाओ.
चाहे तो जीकर भी मर जाओ
चाहे तोह मरकर भी अमर हो जाओ.
यह तुम्हारी चाह हैं
जो चाहो कर वोह कर जाओ.
