Worldwide Tablet Market share going down, says IDC

We've learned about Google and Samsung's second quarter financial results already and expect more companies to make similar reports in the coming days. The reports we've read so far are encouraging although Samsung needs to work harder and double time during the second half of the year. But when it comes to the whole tablet market, we want to know if such Android mobile device is still popular.

Tech companies side with Samsung over patent dispute with Apple

When it comes to the patent war between Apple and Samsung, it looks like several of the big names from Silicon Valley are siding with the latter. A group of these digital giants have sent a petition to the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals that the ruling they handed down, telling Samsung to pay Apple for some of the patent infringement suits they lost, will be a precedent to stifling innovation as well as eliminating choices for consumers.

Apple captures 92% of all smartphone profits in Q1 2015

We’re not sure if we’ll be happy about the news but Apple has recently beaten Samsung and any other phone makers today when it comes to profits. A recent estimate by Cannacord Genuity’s managing director Mike Walkley said that the Cupertino company has taken 92% of the total operating income from the top phone makers in the world today during the first quarter of 2015.

Android top in the US but not Europe; Galaxy S6 sales boost Samsung

We've been wondering if the good reviews of Samsung's new flagship, the Galaxy S6 will translate to sales to help boost the previous smartphone champs. The number (at least from Kantar) are in, and it looks like they have indeed helped the OEM regain top spot in the US, becoming the third best-selling smartphone in the country, just after the iPhone 6 and Samsung's previous flagship, the Galaxy S5. Android has also continued to regain the top spot in the US when it comes to sales, but in Europe's big five, it's still a no go.

Classic rockers AC/DC finally arrives on music streaming services

Music streaming may be big business now, but not all artists are immediately on board to have their entire catalog available for the world on various platforms, without actually paying for them per se. There are those who take some time before finally allowing their labels to put up their music on places like Spotify, Rdio, Deezer, and Google Play Music (and now, Apple Music as well). One of the most popular rock bands in the world, AC/DC, has finally agreed to join said services and classic rock fans couldn't be happier.

Android Community Weekly Digest: Jun. 14, 2015

Another week has gone by and things have rather been silent in the Android world, save for a few wrinkles and moans of exasperation in some corners. Can you guess why? Yep, it was Apple's turn to take the stage but even Cupertino could not deny the presence of Android. Or could it? Regardless of intentions, Apple had two surprises for us this week. In the meantime, Sony seems to be flip-flopping a bit and while LG launched its much awaited and much hyped G4 flagship in the US, some mysterious things are happening with it on AT&T and T-Mobile. Weekly Android Community's Weekly Digest for June 8 to 14, 2015.

After announcing that Apple Music will be available on Android devices, Apple has showcased the first Android-related iOS app. This one will arrive together with the upcoming iOS 9 that will easily allow Android Migration.

Apple Music coming to Android this fall

After the Google I/O Developer Conference, geeks have the WWDC 2015 to keep them busy. While the two events have two different markets, we're happy to announce that Apple and Google are finally working together by allowing some products and services to work on the other platform. Take for example this Apple Music. The new service won't be available only for the iPhones but will also work on Android devices.

Samsung compares Galaxy S6 edge with iPhone 6

Only in the world of Samsung is "6 > 6". No, it's not because people in the marketing department suddenly became bad at math but a new ad campaign from the OEM shows the Galaxy S6 edge being compared to another smartphone that also has the number 6. It is not surprising anymore that the target of their ridicule is once again their arch rival Apple, and this time around, it's their iPhone 6 that bears the brunt of the attack.

Developer close to porting Android Wear for iOS

If Google won't get to it faster, a developer might beat them to having Android Wear smartwatches working with iPhones. While of course this is not an official port, if you're that eager to connect your iPhone with your smartwatch that is not an Apple Watch or a Pebble, then this may be the only way to do so. Android developer MohammadAG shared in a Reddit discussion that he is this close to having his app approved in the App Store.
