    SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 24 — Demand from the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East and Latin America is fuelling the growth of the low-cost smartphone market as well as manufacturers’ use of the Android operating system.

    Low-cost smartphones look to be a key driver of spreading the technology and of bringing mobile connectivity to users worldwide. According to the latest figures from NPD Group released on Oct 22, shipments of sub-US$150 (RM459) handsets has been doubling year-on-year since 2010 and the trend looks set to continue until 2016, when shipments are expected to hit 311 million. Demand is being driven by the Asia Pacific region (60 per cent of shipments) but growth is also occurring in the Middle East and Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe.
    “Most mobile phone subscribers around the world can’t afford to spend more than US$200 for a smartphone, on top of their service plans,” noted Shawn Lee, Research Director at NPD DisplaySearch.
    “Low-cost smartphone manufacturers create these new products quickly without much investment, which has allowed them to extend their telecom subscriber base to emerging regions.”
    And as this growth in low-cost handset continues, so will the use of Google’s Android as their operating system.
    As it is open source, it is the ideal operating system for entry-level phones.
    Sub-$200 Android phones currently account for 2 per cent of total worldwide smartphone shipments.
    However, by 2016 low-cost Android phones alone could account for up to 29 per cent of global smartphone shipments, or the equivalent of the entire worldwide smartphone market in 2010.

    Sasa why unafananisha ipad na wp8 hapo ni sawa unafananisha gari na meli havilingani wp8 ni simu os wakati ipad ni tablet.

    Ipad wa kumfananisha nae ni suraface (i hope umeona uzinduzi wake). Surface tablet imeuza pre order zote za marekani ndani ya siku (apple nyie sku 3).

    Ipad haina uhai mbele ya surface tablet maana ipad ni simu yenye screen kubwa (ios haina nguvu) wakati surface ni hybrid ya laptop os na tablet os na ndo mana inarun desktop app.

    Labda apple waanze toa mac-tablet hapo watakimbizana na microsoft.

    Imagine tablet ina processor ya i5 na ram 4gb hivi huon kama graphic card za nvidia we huon kwamba hili ni funiko? Ipad zilipendwa mkuu.

    Wp8 sio actually open source lakini nayo ipo kwenye ecosystem. Inauzwa dola 20 hadi 30 kutegemea na device.

    Jolla os yao inaitwa sailfish na ni part 2 ya meego. Watu wengi wanaidharau but meego ndio os bora ya simu kwa sasa hasa kwa sifa ya multitask so hio november tunasubiria uzinduzi wake. Na itakua open source

    Miguu inatetemeka eeh, mtoto hajazaliwa tiyari unasema huyu mtoto atakua mbaya.

    Wp8 haijazinduliwa inazinduliwa tarehe 29 na hapa hatuongelei nokia tunaongelea os kama wp8 na android.

    Ona samsung ativ ina 1.5 ghz sawa na samsung galaxy s3 we huoni kua android ana kazi? Same device 2 os? Kama wp8 ni mbaya why watoe device bora?

    Htc 8x ina front camera 2mp best front camera kuliko simu zote duniani na ni simu ya wp8 upo brakelyn?

    Lumia 920 unbeaten kwenye kila kitu ni simu ya wp8 hizi high end device zote ni za wp8.

    so eka akilini mwako hakuna graph wala statistic za wp8 mpaka sasa maaana haijazinduliwaaaaaaaaaaaa

    hapo kwenye red mbona husomeki! 1.5GHz ya Samsung Ativ inaendeshwa na Dual Core Processor wakati S3 anaskuma Quad Core Processor!! Tofauti ya spidi kama twice.
    Mwenzenu iPhone 5 anatumia (Triple-Core Graphics) kwenye GPU yake wakati hiyo lumia imeangukia Adreno 225, Display ya kioo ya iPhone 5 LED-backlit, camera ya iPhone 5 hapo nokia hagusi hata kidogo,,, hata waivundike hiyo wp8 waitoe mwakani hakuna anayeisubiria kwa hamu kama inavyokuwa kwa IOS au Android OS mpya! nokia washaprove failure kwenye game!!

IT USES CARL ZEIS Sensors, i could go on forever !! nenda engadget.com uone hyo camera test. Best smartphone camera are available only in Nokia devices.

    usiisifie processor ya iphone kwa sababu imetengenezwa na samsung na ina power ya 1.2 ghz so ni old processor kwa jina jipya ifixit wameifungua iphone na kuona hio processor na thamani ya iphone 5 ni 200 usd

    Anhaa graphic twende hapo chini

    Display resolution and PPI

    -iPhone 5: 1136 x 640 and 326PPI

    -Lumia 920: 1280 x 768 and 332PPI

    -Lumia 920 wins: 26% better resolution, 2% better
    PPI

    Display size and technology

    -iPhone 5: 4-inch and LED IPS

    -Lumia 920: 4.5-inch and LED IPS

    -Lumia 920 wins if you view a bigger display as
    better, kama unapenda screen ndogo iphone kashinda

    Display response time

    -iPhone 5: average 23 milliseconds

    -Lumia 920: average 9 milliseconds

    -Lumia 920 wins using PureMotion HD+ making it
    2.5x faster

    na bado lumia ina super sensitive screen simu ya kwanza duniani kua na capative screen inayogusika na kila kitu uma, kijiko kucha.

    So unapoongelea graphic kabla kuja processor ya graphic consider hizo factor hapo juu

    Tukija camera utachekwa maana nokia haijawhi kupitwa camera ukiwaskia fan wa android kila siku wanatamani nokia ya android kwa sababu ya camera na maps
    Camera ya nokia inavitu vingi sana

    -optical image stabilization ambayo huondoa mitikisiko ukipiga picha mfano unapiga picha mikono ikitetemeka picha inatoka vibaya so kwa lumia 920 tatizo hili sahau
    -low light. Sehemu yenye mwanga mdogo nokia hutoa picha clear bila flash
    -cinemagraph. Hii ukichukua video unauwezo wa kusimamisha vitu flan visimove kwenye video na vyengine vimove. Mfano unachukua video we unapika na mbwa pemben anacheza unaweza stop mbwa ascheze ikawa unaonekana we unapika tu
    -floating lens lumia 920 lens yake ya kamera inafloat haijakua placed sehemu so better quality

    Hebu ona demo hii ya picha

    Hahhahhhaa chief kuzingatia hivyo vyote ulivyo sema bado android ndo anaaongoza na nokia iko nyuma sana wanauza vitendea kazi sasa kama ningekuwa na hisa huko ningeuza fasta. Still apple maintain the best quality devices out there for any manufacture to compare with becouse it just works......Software na simu inatengenezwa na apple just for one iPhone na siyo kuunga unga na kudilute software kufit kila zagazaga

    Are u sure? Huoni ni nokia against the world?

    Nokia ndo anatengeneza hardware za quality kubwa kushinda iphone au taka taka zozote unazozijua wewe no need ya kwenda popote ingia mtaani tu waulize watu simu gan inadumu sana?

    Na ukitaka prove za kisomi zaidi pia zipo
    1) nenda youtube kaaangalie video za nokia lumia 900 wanavotumia screen yake kugongelea misumari, even general the destroyer (jamaa maarufu wa uingereza) katika tutorial zake sku zote anatumia lumia 900 yake kugongelea tutorial kwenye ukuta.
    je nani anatengeneza screen za nokia? Jibu ni nokia. Why najibu nokia? Sababu technolojia ya hd+ mpaka sasa duniani anayo nokia tu.

    2. Material anayotumia nokia ni polycarbonate ambapo rangi na material ya cover yanachanganywa pamoja tofauti na iphone au android yoyote ambao wana cheap plastic na alluminium ambazo ni scratch friendly.

    Mkuu ngoja naja na iphone 5 na vitu vyakr nkuoneshe
