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.

Samsung and Google to launch new Android device on Oct 19

Samsung and Google

Yes ! It’s finally on the countdown !…Samsung and Google have finally announced the launch of a new device at the upcoming event on October 19. The launch of the new device had been delayed as a tribute to Steve Jobs. Google’s Android has been one of the biggest competitors to Apple’s iOS. With the iPhone4s expecting to hit records, this new Android device will also have a tough time and will give a tough time to Apple.

Is it the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest Android OS and the most awaited Nexus Prime ??? Let’s wait for a few more days and find out.

Ice Cream Sandwich Delayed

Google and Samsung have postponed their much hyped first Android Ice Cream Sandwich device, owing to the death of Steve Jobs. They are looking for a “new date and venue” to unveil the smartphone, which has been dubbed both the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus Prime.

The launching date aside, Samsung posted a teaser video of the device it is planning on debuting soon, on the day when the iPhone 4S was announced to the world. This move would be right because even tho the new device is just some modifications on the previous iPhone4, it would still be a good competitor to Google’s new top-end Android device.

Connecting Galaxy Tab in USB mode

Samsung Galaxy Tab

I was developing some stuff for my Samsung Galaxy Tab using the Android SDK and Eclipse. Just follow the simple steps below to get your device detected by Android SDK.

  • First, go to the Samsung site and download Samsung Kies. Install it and then plug in your device.
  • Run Kies. It should now automatically detect your tab and display it’s contents. If it does so, then it means that the USB Drivers for your device is installed by Kies.
  • In order to run the application successfully on the device, the tab should be first set to Debugging Mode. This can be done by simply going to Settings>Application>Development>USB Debugging. Make sure debugging is turned on.
  • After you have created your application, Run it and it should show you an option of connecting either with the live device or with the emulator. Choose your tab from that screen and voila ! The apk file installs on your device and runs it !

Apple: “Urghhh !! We’ve to stick to Samsung for now”

Apple vs Samsung

Despite the big tech war happening between the two tech giants, Apple has no other choice other than to keep getting key parts for iPhone from Samsung.

Those key parts include the iPhone 5‘s expected main processor, the A5, as well as system memory and flash memory–components that together make up the electronic core.

Samsung will apparently supply the A5 and memory components according to a report in the Korea Times. Korea Times also reported that Samsung Electronics is seeking a “complete ban” on sales of the Apple iPhone 5 in Korea, in response to patent lawsuits by Apple against Samsung.

Apple trying to get a contract with another manufacturer is inevitable, with all the patent and banning sales crap going on between the two companies.
