Just In | Nokia unveils its future US & UK Market strategies

Nokia took 2 bold decisions stating that it would no more release its phone which run on the Symbian OS in US and the all-new Nokia N9 would not be released in US & UK. According to our sources, Nokia would now only be releasing its phones which would feature a new operating system - Windows OS - that has been developed by Nokia in collaboration with Microsoft.

Once its Windows phones are launched, Nokia would no more deal in Symbian OS Phones. Although the decision has come up as a surprise to many, as the Symbian OS is significantly  popular in Nokia phones and doing well all over the world, but it seems Nokia had a different sight in view for them to take this bold decision.

Another shocker came when Nokia announced that its new Nokia N9 wouldn't feature in Us & UK markets, as Nokia is now mainly trying to focus on its new OS - Windows OS - that it has developed in collaboration with Microsoft.

Nokia says that now it is going to adopt a market-to-market approach for different countries and then decide accordingly which phones to release in that market and which not to.

While these decisions come up as a shocker to many people across US & UK, only Nokia can answer so as to why these decision have been opted for. Perhaps, new market strategies.

Tips | The "Google+" World - 6 Simple Tips for the Beginners

Just landed up on the "Google+" and wondering where to start from!
Here are 6 tips for you to get going :

  1. The "Mute this post" Option : Liking a friend's post for fun and suddenly it becomes so popular that notifications get flooded into your account leaving you annoyed and wondering what to do.? Just click on "Mute this post" option and you'll stop receiving further notifications related to that post.
  2. The all-new "Keyboard Shortcuts" : With a whole lot of keyboard shortcuts included in Google+, it was never so easy to write your posts or comments.
  3. "Limited Sharing" with ease : Sharing your party pictures with a certain group but rather reluctant to make them available to some specific people in that? Fear not. Just click on the "limited" link on the top and see exactly with all those people are you sharing that post.
  4. "Tagging" people in your post : While Facebook used "@" symbol followed by the name of the person you want to tag in your post, Google+ uses a "+" symbol followed by the name of the specific person or just the initials with Google+ 'auto complete' option doing rest of the work for you. 
  5. The "Drag & Drop" Option : To add your pictures or videos browsing through your computer to attach a file is a thing of past. With Google+ just drag your pictures or videos directly into the share box and you're done.
  6. Keep you "Circles" Private : Remember hiding your friend list from your friends on your Facebook account. Similarly, in Google + choose whether you want others to know who all you have in your circles keeping your friends and their information absolutely 'sealed' with you.

Surely, with a new platform and a much more interactive userface, Google+ is going to offer stiff resistance to the most-used social networking site -Facebook.

Just In | Nokia & Blackberry Sales - Going....Going....GONE....!!

Apple Inc. and Samsung Co. topped the list of global smartphone makers leaving behind Nokia Co. and Blackberry.

The stats showing sales for the top smartphone making companies saw the tables turning around for long-time top position holder Nokia. The total sales in Q2 saw a drastic increase in the units sold by companies like Samsung and Apple.

Samsung sold around 17.3 million smartphones in Q2 as compared to 10.8 millions in Q1 going from 4th to 2nd in the list of top smartphone sellers.

Apple, however, took the 1st position from Nokia as it sold 20.3 million phones in Q2 as compared to 18.7 million in Q1. With this fantastic growth it won't take longer for Apple to break Nokia's record sales of 28.1 million in a quarter.

As they say, someone's gain is someone's loss. The sales of Nokia phones went down considerably from 24.2 million in Q1 to 16.7 million in Q2.

Both Nokia and Blackberry are trying to find answers to this turn-around and trying to come up with something that would help them retain their earlier positions in the market.

The main cause of concern is the time to time launches from Samsung and the release of IPhone 4 from Apple that has attracted a whole lot of people towards itself.

So, Nokia and Blackberry better buck up to compete with these 2 giants otherwise the possibility of future sales of their smartphones increasing is minimal!
