Sony Mobile CEO Totoki reiterates commitment to smartphone business

Some people have said that 2015 seems to be a low year for Sony Mobile, especially with the generic reviews the Sony Xperia Z4 has received – and this coming from a year of loss in 2014, despite the success of the Sony Xperia Z3. There were rumors that Sony was contemplating selling its mobile business, but Sony Mobile CEO Hitori Totoki has promised that Sony will “never ever” sell or move away from the smartphone arena.

HTC developing a game plan, lists goals for monetization

Ever since that news of HTC's revenue going down last April, we're curious as to how the Taiwanese company will be able to cope up with the loss. The brand is still hopeful because there are other models to sell but HTC should learn from the way they launched and the timing of the One M9. Not that the new flagship phone is not worthy of our attention, it's just that there are thermal issues, no thanks to the Qualcomm S810 processor.

OUYA in trouble, company needs a serious buyer

No official announcement has been made by the company or any of its executives yet but Ouya seems to be in trouble. An email was recently leaked, believed to have a mention of the company being in debt and in need of a buyer. CEO Julie Uhrman was said to have sent this information to advisors and investors. This was after the Ouya-Alibaba deal worth $10 million was launched. Alibaba has invested in Ouya, in hopes that the latter will be saved.

Qualcomm to help market Chinese smartphones globally

Because of the changes in the relationship of Samsung and Qualcomm, the latter is determined to make it bigger in the industry by helping to market other smartphones especially those made in China. As you all know, Samsung has ditched the overheating Snapdragon 810 by the chip maker and didn't use it on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The South Korean tech giant used its own Exynos chip instead and the result was a super fast performance and a big loss for Qualcomm.

Nokia rumored to rejoin phone industry in 2016

Didn't you know? Nokia is still in business. It's not exactly part of the business it became popular for since its mobile division was acquired by Microsoft almost a year ago. That one was expected since Nokia phones are known to run Windows Phone. A few months later, we heard another rumor that it may be mulling over an Android future. Well, the company did try Android by releasing the several Android devices like the N1 tablet and X2 smartphone.

HTC ousts Peter Chou, installs Cher Wang as CEO

Changing CEOs is a huge task for a massive company such as HTC. Normally when we see major executive changes, the change comes on a time schedule rather than happening immediately. There are times when companies move faster than that, and that is exactly what smartphone maker HTC has done.

Samsung believed to be in talks with MediaTek

Samsung seems to be really moving away from Qualcomm. Remember those talks about Samsung no longer using Qualcomm products because of overheating issues? The South Korean giant didn't use a Snapdragon on the new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The company decided to utilize its Exynos chipset instead. That decision makes senses but we're hearing reports that Samsung is in discussion already with MediaTek--a long time rival of Qualcomm.
