HP Spectre X360 Stands Ground Against Competitors with its Subtle Design and Features

Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard became friends at Stanford University before forming a two-person company in a rented garage—the original Silicon Valley startup. From then on, they have established what we know today as the Hewlett-Packard (HP) brand. From oscillators to calculators to printers to computers and accessories, HP has gone a long way. Innovation…

MWC – Vernee rolls out the mighty Apollo 2 plus much more besides

MWC   Vernee rolls out the mighty Apollo 2 plus much more besides
OK, OK. I’ll mention these guys. They’ve emailed us quite a bit over the last few months and it’s safe to say that these emails are a little … umm… “strange”. They keep emailing us with “leaks” from upcoming phones, but it’s their own press team who are emailing these “leaks” so… they’re not really leaks, are they?

Anyhoo, Vernee, who are a bit of a OnePlus alternative might show as many as 4 new phones during MWC 2017. Currently I’m still a bit short on cash and unable to book to get there. I’ve actually resorted to trying a few spins on the Just Jewels slot, but no luck so far. What I can tell you though is that their upcoming Apollo 2 sounds rather interesting. It’s going to be the first Helio X30 smartphone and there’s two variants – one with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, one with 8GB memory and 128GB storage.

Other phones showing on the Vernee MWC page include the “Thor E”, which has a 5020mAh battery but is still only 8.2mm. There’s also a “Thor Plus” with an even bigger battery which has a slimmer build – 6050mAh capacity and just 7.9mm thick.

It’ll certainly be an interesting company to take a look at. Currently information is a bit thin on the ground, but we’re looking at two very powerful versions of the Apollo 2 and two very thin “Thor” phones with rather fantastic battery life.

More as we get it.

  • Smartphone shopping to treble in just four years

    We’ve got the result of some research from OC&C Strategy Consultants, Google and Paypal. It shows that shopping on your smartphone is going to treble in the next four years.

    Treble. Yes, treble. Think about that. It’s already pretty massive as it is – £13.5bn. This research states that it’ll hit £43bn.

    Smartphone shopping to treble in just four years

    They reached these figures based on data of search and transaction data from Google and PayPal UK, and it shows that a mobile phone will be part of 80% of all UK e-commerce by 2020. Trouble is, retailers here in the UK retailers are lagging behind US and Asian competitors on “mobile readiness”. Websites here are between 10% and 25% slower to load on smartphone than US counterparts. Also, only 16% of the top 100 UK retailers offer an online chat facility – something that nearly half of visitors want.

    This is important because Google shows that a mah-oosive £1.5bn was spent by UK consumers on smartphones whilst out and about – travelling, commuting and in cafes. OK, so that’s one thing, but what the data also shows is that you’re spending a further £1.25bn on a smartphone whilst in a shop. So you’re buying something from another shop whilst standing in another shop. That could be with a competing retailer. You’re probably just using the shop you’re standing in as a shop window. Indeed, more than one third (39%) of consumers trust information they find online more than store assistants.

    Smartphone shopping to treble in just four years

    Today, a lot of people are having a hard time even remembering life without these mobile devices. Although a lot of smaller and medium-sized companies haven’t created mobile-friendly websites, there are more templates and website creating apps that’ll do the magic for you. What’s perhaps more interesting is that one particular category of website here in the UK. Also of interest is the fact that the UK is actually succeeding in making mobile-friendly websites of one particular sort. The come from an industry which has created apps such as the Euro Palace mobile casino app. Now, with mobile websites seemingly preferred by shoppers and gamblers alike, it’s the casino and bookmakers that are leading the charge in mobile-friendly applications.

    For everyone else, especially businesses like cake shops, car garages, butchers, hair dresses and for most other local stores where computers and the internet aren’t second nature; there’s going to be some catching up. Currently many of these rely on Facebook pages instead, and they’ve already perhaps paid an expensive web designed to create a site for them – so they won’t be keen on spending yet more just to make it look good on a mobile screen.

    Apple Backs Qi Wireless Charging Standard

    Apple has joined the Wireless Power Consortium, according to IHS Technologies and the WPC’s own web site. Apple is listed as a backing member of the organization, which is behind the Qi wireless charging standard. This is the first time Apple has appeared to support either of the two competing standards. Apple is not backing the AirFuel Alliance (formerly the Power Matters Alliance) wireless charging standard, at least not according to the Alliance’s web site, where Apple is not listed as a member. Apple’s membership in the WPC does not necessarily mean the company plans to bring wireless charging technology to its mobile devices; rather, it means Apple can contribute its own technology to the standard, as well as take advantage of the standard’s existing feature set. Many of Apple’s competitors already back at least one of the two major wireless charging standards. Samsung, for example, supports both Qi and AirFuel, which makes its devices compatible with most wireless chargers. Wireless charging is one of a handful of technologies that Apple’s iPhone has yet to adopt.

    Google Bringing Original Content to YouTube Kids App

    Google today said it has a handful of new programs for its YouTube Kids service on deck. Specifically, subscribers to YouTube Red (Google’s ad-free version of YouTube) will be able to watch four kid-focused series called Hyperlinked, DanTDM Creates a Big Scene, The King of Atlantis, and Fruit Ninja: Frenzy Force.
