Moto X and DROID lineup with a dual-core (8 chip) X8 computing system, and now it appears Apple has something similar with their new iPhone 5S.
just announced a budget and wallet-friendly iPhone, called the iPhone 5C. Whether that stands for cheap, consumer, or color, we're not sure, but we do know they're aiming right for what has helped Android sell over 1 billion devices. The budget market.
Apple fans tomorrow is iPhone 5S day. Where we'll finally see Android's competition and what Apple has been working on for their new iPhone, not to mentioned that often rumored 5C. Last week Apple sent out invitations for a September 10th launch event full of pretty colors, and it's clear they want to offer customers more color choices. Just like Nokia, and now Google with the Moto X. Oh, and we can't forget about that colorful iOS 7 reboot.
Siri has been reported to have some very amusing replies when people, mistakenly or intentionally, address her as "Glass".
Google released a pretty massive update that completely overhauled their Google Maps application for mobile devices. The new and improved Maps is pretty awesome, although some still miss the old version, but that change was to stay ahead of the competition. That competition being Apple and Nokia.
IDC report has been published and this time around they are talking tablets. The report covers the second quarter of 2013 and while it is showing Apple as sitting on top with a 32.4 percent share of the tablet market, this same report is also showing Apple as dropping year-over-year. More to that point, this same report is showing big year-over-year growth for Samsung and Android as a whole.
