Nokia: Why Win7 but not Android?

Every gadget freaks are hoping that Nokia will partner with Google so they can get Android ROM in their Nokia phones. I had glance through Gizmodo and found Steven Elop, Nokia CEO explanation on why.

Nokia considered three OSes to move to: MeeGo, Android or Windows Phone 7. In talking about Android, Elop admits to its strength but also points out some weaknesses:

"There's something happening there. There's no denying that. [But] our sense was differentiation could be a pretty big challenge. The risk for commoditization would increase dramatically."

So now we have a 3 corner fight between Android, iOS and Win7 (Mircokia)..It will be a very interesting year of gadget fight!

Samsung Galaxy Tab II and Galaxy S II in MWC 2011 Spain

The battle of the tablet had began as Samsung had confirm 10.1 inches table with Honeycomb 3.0 confirm to be bundled in the package. With resolution at 1280 x 800 and 1GHz processor will be the biggest selling point for this tablet. It also rumored to have 8 mega-pixel camera with full HD recording. We just need to wait and see.

Not to forget the Galaxy S II will come with a 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 Super AMOLED Plus display, a 1GHz dual-core Orion / Exynos processor, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, and 24Mbps HSPA+ connectivity.

I have a lot of friends still using the Nokia 5800XM because of the Garmin Mobile XT support compare to Android and iOS..I myself is one of them. Not really sure why Garmin haven't really come out a compatible software for Android market. It will be a market boom. Is it because of some non mutual understanding between Google and Garmin?..Some sort like Adobe and Apple clash causing no flash support on the Apple iPhone. Well, lucky that the Papago X5 is one of the many solution of android user to utilize the GPS function on their phone without needing to pay those expensive data telco service when using Google maps.

HP TouchPad vs. iPad vs. Xoom vs. PlayBook

Starting year of 2011, will be the year of the tablet. Where all company are battling out to produce the best table money can buy. This tablet actually become a fashion statement, so the best design might win compare to hardware specs.

The price will also be very competitive, and it might benefit us, the consumers, where companies will fight to give the best price, so they can gain the market share. Below are some tablet rival took from ENGADGET. I prefer the XOOM for it's functionality and also preloaded with Honeycomb!

At last, the webOS-empowered TouchPad, HP's answer to the growing tablet market. And make no mistake, it's coming in with guns blazing -- specs-wise, the slate stands up pretty well to the competition currently in play (e.g. iPad) and the other up-and-comers not quite out the gate (e.g. Motorola Xoom andBlackBerry PlayBook). Stacked side-by-side, it's clear Apple's entry is lacking a bit in both memory (256MB vs. 1GB for everyone else) and front-facing camera -- not that we expect that to be the case forall of 2011. When it all comes down to it, what'll set these slates apart will be the platforms and software themselves -- should make for an interesting summer, no? In the meantime, for the nitty-gritty on technical specifications, venture past the break.
