Forrester: No Android Tablet Has More Than 5% Share vs iPad. How Does Amazon’s Kindle Fire Compare?

Forrester: No Android Tablet Has More Than 5% Share vs iPad. How Does Amazon’s Kindle Fire Compare? | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

On the eve of what may well be the launch of a brand new iPad from Apple comes some new analysis from Forrester Research on the current competitive landscape in tablets — or lack thereof, as the case seems to be.

 

In short: despite the rush of tablets that have come out in the past year, many built on Google’s Android OS, Apple has managed to continue to run away with the competition, and how has 73 percent of the tablet market. No Android tablet maker, it notes, has more than a five percent share against it.

 

There is a caveat to Forrester’s research, however.

Forrester carried out its market research last September, before Amazon had started to sell its Kindle Fire tablet, and before Barnes & Noble had released its own tablet to compete against that.

 

These devices have proven to be forces in the market, and are already having an impact on sales of another device in the food chain, e-readers.

Apple Games Converge With Android Using HTML 5 as IPad Rejects Flash: Tech

Pity the programmer. The path used to be so clear. After coming up with the next billion-dollar software idea, the only decision left was whether to build it for just Microsoft Corp. (MSFT)’s Windows or Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s Mac as well.
Now the options are far more diverse. Mobile platforms like Apple’s iOS, Google Inc. (GOOG)’s Android, and Windows Phone all vie for coders’ attention alongside desktop operating systems and Web hubs such as Facebook Inc. Each one requires time, and often a different skill set.
The challenge is particularly acute in video games, where iPhone users expect to be able to interact with their friends even if they’re using a different device. Michael Carter, a 27- year-old software engineer, says he has a solution in HTML 5, Bloomberg Businessweek reports in its Feb. 27 issue.

BBM might be coming to other Smartphone Platforms: Smart or Not? | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

Blackberry might be attempting a very risky move soon with BBM. Recently leaked images (by TechnoBuffalo) of BBM running on an Android device seem to suggest that RIM is looking at broadening the install base of BBM to other platforms.

Viral channels for Android apps to launch ‘in coming weeks’

Viral channels for Android apps to launch ‘in coming weeks’ | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

One of the bits of news hidden in this week’s flood of Facebook marketing and HTML5 announcements is that viral channels for native Android apps are coming to the platform in a few weeks.

 

That will finally bring the mobile platform to parity between Android and iOS. Developers for both platforms will be able to promote their apps in the news feed and through requests and bookmarks. If a person sees activity from a mobile app in their news feed, they’ll be driven to the app if they have it or the right page in the iTunes store or Android Market for downloading it. Facebook first unveiled these mobile channels back in October, but they were just for iOS and mobile web apps.

This Is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google's New Official Android Phone

This Is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google's New Official Android Phone | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

The Galaxy Nexus, the new Android flagship phone from Google and Samsung is finally out of the bag. I am like, omega-level excited about that screen, and Ice Cream Sandwich looks tasty, too. Let's take a bite. Update: Hands on below.


First off, it runs Android 4.0, a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich. ICS has a very new look and feel. It's like Gingerbread and Honeycomb had a baby, and while there are bits and pieces from both mommy and daddy, there's also a lot of new here. 1280x720 is ICS's native resolution—and, what a coincidence, those are the dimensions of the Galaxy Nexus. Means all that beauty should run nice n' quick on the Galaxy Nexus.
