Comments Off

At a press conference Nokia World 2010 the Finnish company said that a leader in sales of smartphones a day.

Nokia World 2010

Nokia still move more smartphones than the Big Two. How many you ask? Try about 260,000 a day.

To put that into perspective, last I heard, Apple ship somewhere around 80,000 iPhones per day, and Android activate 200,000 devices per day.

Nokia World 2010

So, how do Nokia define “smartphone”? You can probably safely guess that they would exclude Series in 1940, meaning that it is any device running S60 5th edition.

That’s right, Nokia still outsell their biggest competitors by a large margin. Also consider that, even though Android phones are made by many different manufacturers, Nokia alone still manage to outsell them.

How does Skype Make Money?

Comments Off

Skype is one of the most popular internet communication services in the world. It has been in business since 2003. During the years of its existence it has been sold a couple of times, and both times for a substantial amount of money. So what does Skype offer? One of the main features that draw so many to the service is the fact that one can make free calls both to local users and to international users through their computers. Skype also offers video conferencing, file transfers, screen sharing, instant messaging and other services all for free. As a matter of fact, most of the services that Skype offers are free. With all these free features, what makes Skype such a valuable company, how does it make any money if most of its services are free?

Skype does not rely on advertising to generate its income, as many online services do. Rather, Skype generates its revenues from plans that allow communication with landlines and mobile devices. These services are available to those who use Skype for personal issues as well as those who use Skype to run their business through. Plans can range from pay as you go, to monthly plans that cover an unlimited usage amount. These plans generate the majority of the revenue that Skype receives. Being as there are always people that do not have Skype that one needs to contact, whether thru personal or business needs, it is expected that this number will continue to increase.

Sony Ericsson F305 Hello Kitty Edition

New Hello Kitty device

Sony Ericsson F305 Hello Kitty Edition

Sony Ericsson F305 Hello Kitty Edition

Sony Ericsson F305 was seen, right from the beginning, as a phone for teens and preteens. So I guess SE couldn’t have thought about a better special edition for it than a Hello Kitty one. Of course, the Sony Ericsson F305 Hello Kitty Edition will lure much more preteen and teen girls rather than boys, but that’s probably its purpose anyway. It’s not clear yet what’s the special stuff the Hello Kitty edition of the phone offers – save for the cutely-painted case, which, in the end, should be enough for real fans.

Sony Ericsson F305 Hello Kitty Edition – The F305 is a game-centric phone, with stereo speakers and motion control. Other features include 2-MP Camera, Bluetooth, Memory Stick Micro™, FM radio and Organizer.
