Samsung vs Apple…Checkmate !

samsung vs apple

With the release of Galaxy Nexus, Samsung has overthrown Apple to become the largest mobile phone maker be revenue. Apparently Samsung sold over 28 million in the third quarter, where Apple managed to sell only 17 million devices. With this, Apple has been dropped to the third position behind Samsung and Nokia.

Nokia still retains the title of the largest mobile phone seller (in terms of volume). With the upcoming lineup of Nokia Windows phones, It can be said without doubt that Nokia will either retain it’s previous position or become the largest mobile phone maker both in terms of sales and volumes.

iPhone 4S finally goes on sale

Apple iPhone 4s

After a long wait filled with curiosity and anxiousness, iphone 4S is finally hitting stores in the US and six other countries. Another unique feature that iphone 4s really owes to, for increasing the sales is that the phone is available in not one, but three wireless operators namely AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. With the preorders hitting records, I really can’t wait to see how well the iPhone does in sales.

Many people consider buying this phone as a tribute to Steve Jobs, whose innovative and visionary mind drove Apple to where it stands today. So now not only are the people feature and style driven, but emotionally driven as well towards the latest iOS device.

Steve Jobs : A legend who will never be born again

It’s been sad few days all around the world after the untimely death of Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs. Throughout his life, Steve Jobs had really struggled both in personal and professional context. He has faced a lot of difficulties, failures and  rejections to reach where he is today. Many people idolise him and want to be like him, but the true fact is that no one knows what it actually takes to be on par with a man of his caliber.

Steve Jobs has dedicated his life to Apple and their products, with his focus on always giving the best of what the user wants. Even though Apple products are overpriced, the quality and uniqueness of their devices forced people into buying it. Everytime Apple releases a new product, we always get to see umpteen number of people waiting at the store to get their hands on the device. Such has been the influence of Steve’s company on the people. It’s of no marvel that Apple managed to make it to among the most valuable companies in the world. Truly world class work on building world class products.

Steve Jobs’ official biography is set to debut October 24, as publishers race to print stories of Jobs’ life after his death. When asked why he sanctioned such a candid biography, Jobs , replied, “I wanted my kids to know me. I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.”
