Uniquely Designed Touch Screen Phone From Neonode/N2

“From You Tube: To hear Neonode’s director of marketing Daniel Stalbo talk about his company’s patented infrared light grid technology reminds me of what it takes to be an art thief who doesn’t disrupt the cross-thatched beams of light used to protect multimillion-dollar works of art. In principle, its a similar grid of light beams that’s behind Neonode’s claim that it’s touchscreen technology is better than the rest. At the Consumer Electronics Show, TechWebTV’s David Berlind finds out what’s special about the technology”…. <www.neonode.com/>

Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

Question: “Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

Part of Answer # 1

“What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

“The big question is – can WiMAX catch up w or replace Cellular adoption and maturity? Intel and Samsung would like to make it the big connect-anywhere feature for new UMPC’s, but I note that for instance Sprint just delayed its planned US rollout – so we have to wait and see.

Korean WiBro is a Govt supported service up and running, and I have heard that Indian operators will now look to WiMAX for gaining cheap RoW into cities and across slums areas instead of trenching-in fiber”….   Via Linked In Answers

Both offer wide-screen video playback, a Wi-Fi Internet browser, the ability to play Internet video content from YouTube, wireless music purchases, a music player, photo viewer, video player, and much more.

I Could Have Been A Contender- The Mobile Phone Operating System Wars

“Though the PC OS wars were brutal and delivered many clashes over the years, the smartphone OS war may make those battles seem tame. This time, the stakes are even higher, as the market for digital devices is four to five times larger in terms of units. So, which operating-system makers will be the major vendors vying for supremacy in the smartphone market over the next five to eight years? —next: The Contenders > >>> <More>

Sharp announces new optical-sensing touchscreen display – better than iPhone multi-touch screen

“Sharp has announced a new touchscreen LCD  that not only rivals the iPhone’s multi-touch display (manufactured by Balda), but blows it out of the water. The new tech is based on optical sensors built right into the display, as opposed to the Balda-made screen’s capacitive technology. Sharp claims that this results in a display that is not only thinner (1 mm – making more room for advanced components and allowing for slimmer devices), but can actually double as an optical scanner”…. <More> 

Also See: “In this light, Sharp developed its proprietary System LCD technology to successfully embed an optical sensor used in devices like scanners in each pixel of the LCD panel. This technology eliminates the need for films, resulting in a thinner, beautifully clear screen display compared to conventional touch screens. In addition, tactile recognition based on simultaneously touching multiple points on the screen is now possible, a feature previously difficult to implement. For example, users can easily tap the screen with two fingers to enlarge or reduce a displayed map. Also, the scanner function can be used to scan in a business card placed on top of the screen, and further improvements to this function are expected to enable fingerprint authentication in the future”… <More>

To all iPhone customers

I have received hundreds of emails from iPhone customers who are upset about Apple dropping the price of iPhone by $200 two months after it went on sale. After reading every one of these emails, I have some observations and conclusions.

First, I am sure that we are making the correct decision to lower the price of the 8GB iPhone from $599 to $399, and that now is the right time to do it. iPhone is a breakthrough product, and we have the chance to ‘go for it’ this holiday season. iPhone is so far ahead of the competition, and now it will be affordable by even more customers. It benefits both Apple and every iPhone user to get as many new customers as possible in the iPhone ‘tent’. We strongly believe the $399 price will help us do just that this holiday season”…. <More>

UWB: An old technology makes new sparks fly

Via The Economist: “With its immunity from interference from buildings, easy co-existence with other forms of radio transmission and an ability to transmit live video streams at gigabit per second speeds over short distances, UWB has had more than its share of hype. But the technology—at least in its guise as a wireless version of the ubiquitous USB cable used to connect computers and cameras to printers and other peripherals—has been catching on fast, as a rival (and perhaps complement) to Bluetooth.So much so, laptop makers like Lenovo and Dell have been hard pressed to meet demand for their latest models that come with UWB connections built in”…..
