Samsung AMOLED An Ultra High Definition Screen For Its Next Tablet

Amoled display

Samsung, the electronics giant continues to fuel its research to be always on top especially in the area of the screen. The South Korean firm is preparing a high -resolution ultra AMOLED screen for its next Smartphone.

Samsung finally put on the screen to stay on top of the Smartphone sales. The South Korean firm said he intended to propose in 2014 the Smartphone screen with very high density. This news is not surprising and it is given already and we already knew the value of technology for Samsung monitors.

This manufacturer has been one of the first to release a Smartphone with curved screen namely the Galaxy Round. There is also a rumor that Samsung is also preparing a wraparound screen for the next Samsung Galaxy Smartphone.

2014 should be the year of innovations for the South Korean firm. Samsung grabbed huge share of the Smartphone market from Apple for this quarter year sales. To maintain this significant advantage, it relies on new display technologies, such as high quality.

 That is why websites reported that Samsung is preparing Smartphone screens AMOLED 2560 x 1440 or 560 pixels per inch. For comparison, the iPhone 5S has a 1136 x 640 screen that is 326 pixels per inch. This high density could be applied to a touch tablet rather than a Smartphone, as suggested by the rumor that Samsung would have a giant tablet for 2014. More frankly; the South Korean firm tries to conquer the tablet market which is dominated by Apple's iPad.

The evidence of an imminent launch of the new Nexus 10 condense. Now the tablet is even first appeared in an online shop. The British supermarket chain Tesco had the device listed briefly before it was hastily taken offline again.

In the meantime, however, a Reddit user could make screenshots of the product page. These list the exact specification of the next Google tablet. Accordingly, a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels is represented on the 10 -inch IPS display. The processor of Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 comes with a clock speed of 2.3 GHz is used; the memory is sized properly sized with 3 GB of RAM. Wi-Fi is sparked by the new 802.11 ac and Bluetooth is also on board as a matter of course camera on front and back.

The internal memory is 16 GB and is probably, like Nexus devices usually cannot be increased. The battery life is specified at 18 hours and the weight of 420 grams According to the data sheet of the new Tesco Nexus 10 will actually be selling from the 22/11/2013 to the price of 299 British Pounds (about 360 Euros). LG recently handed in after good work on the Nexus Smartphone, the South Koreans and the latest rumored next Nexus tablet may seem finished.

First it was a few weeks ago were saying that Asus come to train, but now supposedly leaked images suggest to LG. Independently emerged in recent days on two images that allegedly show the new Nexus 10th Both graphs show clearly the same tablet and should once come directly from LG and one of Telefonica/O2 from the UK.

Accordingly, the tablet bears the model name LG- V510 and should cost 299 pounds (about 360 Euros). The official launch is supposedly on Friday the 22th November 2013 instead.

Microsoft files patent for automatically quieting Smartphone

Microsoft files patent
Ringing phones at the movies, in restaurants or at theater annoy other guests and also the forgetful owners. Microsoft wants to let it automatically silences there.

Microsoft has filed in the United States a patent application that describes a mechanism that will automatically mute the Smartphones and other mobile devices when the user is at places opportune where that appears - for example, in the cinema, the theater or in the hospital.

 Microsoft describes in his patent application, which was filed in August, 2013, but published only now, could be a mechanism by which this “peace service" work. The user can define it, where and especially how long the phone in certain places or at certain occasions is quiet.

It would be interesting, for example, the link to the schedule. Thus, the Smartphone would not spend more ringing and other notifications as long as the owner is in a meeting. A similar mode has been built into iOS and Mac OS X as Apple.

However, the user must actively adjust the idle mode there, but can determine the period free. A patent application does not mean that Microsoft's technology also actively developed and will be available in various Smartphones with Windows Phone soon.

Why Your BYOD Platform Will Fail in Tablet Kiosk Marketing Deployments

The industry as a whole has gotten more sophisticated in understanding the unique requirements that come with using tablets and smart phones. And businesses are moving beyond internal BYOD deployments to embracing the huge advantages of tablet kiosk marketing, mobile point of sale (mPOS), digital signage and countless other opportunities increasingly sophisticated tablets are offering.
The bad news? Deploying thousands of devices as a mobile POS is very different than deploying thousands of personal devices in a BYOD scenario. And if you're trying to use your in-place BYOD platform to deploy purposed mobile solutions, your deployment is going to fail.
At a very basic level: the requirements for a platform that manages personal devices are far different than the requirements necessary to manage purposed devices, both from a technical standpoint as well as a business process and workflow standpoint.
In BYOD deployments, your business user manages her device, and uses it in all arenas for both personal and enterprise data. Your focus--and the purpose of your BYOD software platform--is very simply maintaining the separation of that data and keeping enterprise information secure.
But on the purposed side, you are facing legions of users who need to be left out of managing the device. Your BYOD software solutions, while designed to manage a large fleet of mobile devices, do not have the capability—or focus--to deal with the complexity of multi-user mobile devices. And deploying and managing thousands of tablets in commercial shared-use environments creates significant technical and operational challenges that BYOD scenarios will never present.
Key issues include:
User experience, security, and monitoring challenges. You need to maintain both the physical and data security of your tablet kiosk solution, lock users out of personalization and management while maintaining your own control, and stay up-to-date on every aspect of the device, from battery to location to installed content to connectivity to app updates and more. And you need to manage, control, and secure every aspect of your mobile solution in real-time, from a central location.
All this plus the need to maintain the essential tablet experience, including access to the Internet and apps, but you need to lock down that access, ensure the experience is curated, and stay on top of security. You need to eliminate the possibility of customization or vandalism, and ensure users can't change or remove content, or worse, add content that's inappropriate. Users must also be prevented from interrupting network connectivity and ruining the experience of other guests who come after them.
Things like App Store purchases, iTunes downloads, deleting apps, rearranging icons, and changing the home screen wallpaper need to be disabled without affecting the user interaction experience and reducing the need to restore or re-image the tablet.
And finally, you need to safeguard your users as well, ensuring their personal information and their session information is cleared when the application quits, and that any information collected is encrypted and inaccessible to any other user.
Technical and device management challenges. Unlike your BYOD deployment, with personal devices safely in the hands of your employees, your fleet of purposed devices require constant maintenance, upkeep, and update after being battered by the public. From restores to refreshes to data caching, from pushing fresh dynamic content to uploading customer information and feedback, the day-to-day administration of mobile kiosks requires sophisticated management tools.
Purposed devices also require rapid development and accelerated deployment of content, end-to-end wireless network and mobile device visibility, and advanced system reliability, availability and scalability (RAS). The complexity of these environments makes routine BYOD tasks such as device and network component roll-outs, updates and maintenance and support/problem resolution difficult without a specifically designed mobile device management platform for commercial deployment.
BYOD platforms are not up to the challenge of delivering a fully secure, constantly updated, always-reliable mobile kiosk, mPOS, and digital signage experience. To ensure that your deployment is completely successful, rely on a mobile management platform specifically built to manage and monitor your innovative tablet solutions.
Check out our infographic, Purposed Devices vs. Personal Devices, to learn more about how managing mobile devices used as mobile point-of-sale, kiosks, digital signage or any other purposed use case is very different than managing personal devices.
