  • Google On The Verge Of Making His Entry Into The War Shelves

    Google is going to break this week in the war by unveiling the China Electronics Wholesale tablet touchscreen interface, expected at a conference in San Francisco during which the Californian giant hopes to prove he is always at the forefront of innovation.

    The annual "Google I / O", a vast gathering of software developers, starting this Wednesday.

    The objective is clear for Google: convincing companies, programmers and others involved in new technologies that the future lies in the Google branded products, such as Android, its operating system for handheld devices, Chrome, its web browser, YouTube, Google TV + or Google, the social network home.

    "It is crucial (for Google) to attract talent," said Charles Golvin, an analyst with the consulting firm Forrester.

    Google for as for other industry giants, starting with Apple, "it's not so much who has the most applications, but to know will happen with the next innovation," he says.

    The conference comes as Google is under pressure to harmonize the various versions of Android, which equip both mobile phones as shelves.

    While applications built on IOS, the operating system from Apple, can work with all devices produced, developers must modify their programs depending on a particular version of Android Cool Gadgets.

    CAAAF.PK, has also made a demonstration of several new products at its own conference two weeks ago in San Francisco. The group of Cupertino took the opportunity to present its own mapping service, which will come into competition with Google Maps - based on competition on many levels that engage in major industry groups.

    A China wholesale cool gadgets wholesale tablet called "Nexus"? "Apple is trying to convince developers that its platform has the largest audience (...), and Google does the same thing with Android, Chrome" and its other products, says Mr. Golvin.

    But if we are to believe the leaks in the press, the star of the conference could be a tablet computer designed in collaboration with the Taiwanese manufacturer Asus and named "Nexus", a name already used by Google during the launch of its first smartphone, a partnership with HTC.

    This tablet features a 7 inch (18 centimeters) could be sold with the latest version of Android (called "Jelly Bean") at a price of 199 dollars, the same price as the tablet of Fire Amazon Kindle, and $ 200 cheaper than the ogre sector, the Apple iPad cool gadgets free shipping, whose screen is larger (9.7 inches).

    "Readers (eBook) prefer the seven-inch screens," says Rob Enderle, a Silicon Valley expert. "Amazon has released a new Kindle and Google Cool Gadgets may be good enough to compete."

    Google also intends to outdo Microsoft, which last week unveiled its own China Electronics Wholesale tablet, "Surface", equipped with an ambitious new operating system, Windows 8.

    The "Google I / O" will also find out what projects Google's integration on TV - Google TV - and social networks. It is no secret that Google +, launched to contest the empire of Facebook, is still struggling to find its stride.

    "Google is wrestling with Facebook and it will be interesting to see what will be his next move," said Ray Valdes, an expert from Gartner.

    Booming cloud computing Cool Gadgets ("cloud"), "I will watch closely how as (Google) intends to accelerate the movement," says Valdes.

  • Windows Cool Gadgets Tablets 8: An Alternative To The IPad In Business?

    Microsoft unveiled its own touch pad Windows 8 Gadgets cut for the pros. It has advantages for companies missing from the iPad that analyst firms have well highlighted, while expressing some reservations.

    Selection: Six alternatives to the iPad cool gadgets free shipping in Business

    Analysis: Windows 8 Release Preview: a disappointment to the pros?
    News: Windows 8: Three editions are announced

    It is never better served than by oneself: Microsoft decided to make its own tablet , called Surface . It is available in two models, one of which must attract companies.

    If the version thought to the general public will run Windows and therefore RT ARM, designed for companies that will use technology from Intel (Ivy Bridge) to, of course, turn the license Windows 8 Pro . The tablet surface devised to professionals may therefore welcome applications running on Windows 7, unlike the other model.

    A tablet thought to the pros and Microsoft signed
    This is not the only difference. Its Intel will enable it to offer a useful USB 3.0 port. The Pro version will offer twice as much storage space (64 GB or 128), but will also increase: 903 grams, against 652 for the new iPad and 676 for Windows Surface RT . According to the data sheet, the ARM version will integrate Office 2013 RT. But it will not be the case for the pro version of the surface, which does not mention Office in its specifications. A stylus can also accompany this enterprise version.

    The two Cool Gadgets models have both a 10.6-inch screen (slightly more than the iPad), and only offer Wi-Fi. They are also equipped with a detachable keyboard gadgets.

    Keyboard, stylus, USB or HDMI ... The tablet surface Windows 8 Pro offers cool gadgets free shipping natively useful business missing from the iPad. All assets that could help Microsoft to penetrate the shelf Windows 8 in business . But the best argument for the publisher to impose its product as an alternative to the iPad business is proposed the Windows environment, experienced CIOs and thought for them - two areas where Microsoft stands out largely from Apple.

    Impose a standard and push prices down
    Moreover, IDC analyst Francisco Jeronimo has not failed to note that this tablet "clearly targets companies where Microsoft can justly differentiate Apple and take her market share." For Carolina Milanesi at Gartner, "Surface must also give a sexiness to Microsoft, and prove that the publisher of Windows knows what to do to succeed in the post-PC." The challenge is therefore, according to this analyst, size.

    Data Sheet (official): Windows Surface

    According to Carolina Milanesi, Microsoft intends to spend OEM partners to better reduce China Electronics Wholesale prices or improve the specification of its equipment. For her, however, the maneuver is less flow of huge volumes of tablets to impose a standard which would allow Redmond "to sell some of them with a good margin," but above "push partners OEM in a competition that will lower prices. "

    Microsoft did not give a specific date for its China Electronics Wholesale marketing area shelves, but said the tablet ARM Windows 8 RT would be ready for the launch of Windows 8. The version for businesses to cut it, out three months after, probably in early 2013, and thus for the ESC. The price should, according to Microsoft, which does not elaborate on this point either, compete with that of ultrabooks , which begin to fall below 800 euros.

  • Microsoft And Windows Tablet Surface 8: Seduction Operation Successful?

    Microsoft and Windows Tablet Surface 8: seduction operation successful?

    In presenting its own tablet on Windows 8 Cool Gadgets, Microsoft has tried to play the China Electronics Wholesale card of seduction. Indeed succeeded?

    Let's face it, were you thinking, there is barely a month that Microsoft was preparing its own tablet Windows 8? For me, the answer is no. I suspected that the publisher had to build or have built a few prototypes to test its system internally. But until the recent invitation of journalists to an event "major" , I thought the software giant confine itself to provide its operating system to other manufacturers as it does with Windows Phone.

    One more time And now yesterday, I learned that Microsoft China wholesale cool gadgets handed it. After the commercial failure of the Tablet PC operating system ill-conceived, after the unfortunate fate of the Zune (the iPod competitor regretted) outside the American continent, the father of Windows tries again to take matters in hand attempt to become a valid competitor in the mobile world dominated by Apple and Google. For despite all its qualities, Windows Phone has always shunned by the general public and Windows 8, the successor to Windows, seems to convince many people that it disappoints.

    Unlike Apple's strategy is to introduce smooth functionality of IOS in Mac OS X, Microsoft has opted to break the habits of its users by merging its abrupt interfaces and mobile OS desktop. The result may well be appealing on a touch device, it is less so on a desktop or a laptop because of some unnatural manipulation for advanced users to the Start Menu and Taskbar. Many (most?) Of owners of iPhone and iPad boast ease of use of these products and believe, wrongly or rightly, that Mac OS X has the same quality. In response, Microsoft has tried to ensure that a user of Windows 8 finds its brands directly on their smartphone Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 on the tablet, and vice versa, even if that choice is not necessarily beneficial to Windows currently.

    Compete iOS, Android cool gadgets wholesale... and Windows 8?

    What did Microsoft intend presenting its own Cool Gadgets tablet equipped with Windows 8 RT ? Windows 8 highlight, of course. But remember that the publisher / manufacturer will sell its license to other manufacturers of tablets such as Acer, Toshiba or HTC (to name a few). So how to tempt the buyer to choose a model? Considering he, like Google with its Nexus range, to provide a reference shelf? Windows 8, the argument of updates guarantees and no longer a priority. That leaves the software and hardware support from Microsoft, but that, I'm just supposed. By cons, there is more, this is the cover acting as a touchpad (or physical depending on model).

    By offering a fine keyboard and easy to carry Microsoft may have invented the tablet to work - and the ultimate accessory. But by leaving, not Will we not find in the China Electronics Wholesale market for clones of this accessory for Android tablets or iPad? What will it remain so to this product, if not its buffer "Microsoft" and its OS face a new iPad and a Nexus 7 to name a few? Exactly, that's perhaps what makes the difference. If the price is not excessive, that quality is at the rendezvous, as connection with the Cool Gadgets like Xbox 360, Windows Phone and computers (cool PC and Mac) is efficient and intuitive, so it is very likely that these Windows 8 tablets, and possibly that of Microsoft, will find their audience. Unfortunately, if the information site Digitimes is correct, it would take $ 599 for the RT version and $ 799 for the pro version, which could hamper the RT version if have applied an exchange rate of 1:1 for the price Sales in Europe ... Finally, Microsoft Will he cut down his card "eBook Nook" or custody there for later?

    Microsoft Windows 8 gadgets with big plays. By choosing to produce himself one tablet (cool gadgets free shipping) equipped with his system, he shows how he believes in its solution. Unless it is the final China Electronics Wholesale bluff to save the day? Personally, I incline to the first solution and I'm anxious to see if a tablet equipped with Windows 8 RT, and why not this area, my touchpad will succeed in time.
