Moshi for iPad

    Users of Apple’s Mac line of desktop computers are pretty disappointed by the lack of attention being given to the Mac Pro and the iMac at this week’s Worldwide Developer Conference.  The Mac Pro only received a minor spec update, and it even lost its designation as “new” in the Mac Pro online store. The iMac didn’t even see as minor an update as the Mac Pro’s.


    Apple asks for patience – iMac and Mac Pro updates coming in 2013


    Pre-conference rumors had suggested that both the Mac Pro and the iMac were in for some big changes, including a Retina-fueled refresh.


    Apple the manufacturer of iPhone 4S and iPad3 seems to be making a big effort to quiet the mob that fears for the life of their desktop computers. One concerned user emailed Apple CEO Tim Cook who responded: “Our pro customers are really important to us...don't worry as we're working on something really great for later next year.”


    Reports by Forbes and New York Times columnist David Pogue corroborated the news that Mac Pro and iMac updates are coming next year. The information was provided directly by an Apple spokesperson who said that new models and new designs of the Mac Pro, as well as the iMac desktop, are in the works and will likely be released in 2013.

    While both Sony and Nintendo are expected to ship more than 38 million handheld gaming devices in 2013, that’s significantly lower than the 47 million that were sold at the peak of their popularity in 2008.


    Here’s what senior ABI analyst Michael Inouye said about the future of the gaming device market: “Mobile devices will compete with dedicated handheld gaming devices, but select consumer segments like core gamers and those individuals who do not want or have a smartphone or tablet will still provide some demand,” “The addition of mobile gaming is not necessarily a zero sum situation; in fact, many feel there is plenty of room in the gaming market for both portable and mobile gaming.”

    Leaked images of what is supposedly the housing for Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone hit the Web last week. They show a taller, thinner aluminum case than the one currently used by the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4. The case could accommodate a larger display – perhaps even one that measures a little over 4-inches diagonally.


    The latest on Apple’s iPhone 5 - a thinner case and a 4.1-inch display

    In a note to clients, Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst with a good reputation for getting his facts correct, outlined what he knows about Apple’s iPhone 5 plans. Here’s a summary of his knowledge of the iPhone 5 specs:


    • A 4.08-inch in-cell IPS panel screen with a display resolution of 1,136 x 640 and 500-nit brightness
    • A display that measures 50.9 millimeters wide by 90.3 millimeters tall
    • In-cell touch elements in its display.
    • An impressively- thin 7.9 mm case (the iPhone 4S's 9.3 mm)
    • A battery that is roughly the same capacity as the one found in the iPhone 4S
    • An HD-capable front-facing camera that has been moved from the left side of the earpiece to the center
    • An 8 MP sensor and a 5 element lens for the back camera that is similar to the 4S but with a larger aperture of f/2.2 (currently f/2.4) to improve the low-light performance

    The latest on Apple’s iPhone 5 - a thinner case and a 4.1-inch display


    Some of this information was confirmed in previous reports by that The Wall Street Journal and Reuters.


    Dispelling previous rumors about the display size, Kuo notes that Apple chose not to use a larger 4.3-inch display because it would require a larger battery and wouldn’t support comfortable single-handed operation. Apple has contracted Toshiba Matsushita Display, LG Display and Sharp to supply the new panels.


    We’re only a week away from the WWDC conference in San Francisco, so we don’t have much longer to wait for a glimpse from Apple’s view of the world.  Recent reports suggest Apple’s next iPhone will launch in September or October along with a new iPad mini.

    The Apple Worldwide Developer’s Conference starts in six days. Who isn’t on the edge of their seat in anticipation of what Apple has planned for iOS 6 and beyond?

    We’ve been hearing all kinds of rumors about Apple’s 2012 plans for its mobile OS. Here are a few predictions on the street:


    • Big changes in its user interface theme to look more like the iPad - blue and blue stripes, to a sharp silver look.
    • A new Maps app that replaces Google’s.  Apple’s app will map images and data in 3D.
    • Automatic app updates (that possibly require connecting the phone to Wi-Fi and/or plugging it into a power source.)
    • An iCloud keychain that syncs all Apple devices and platforms.
    • iCloud tabs to for opening any tabs on your desktop browser in the iOS browser.
    • A Facebook integration for posting photos and videos to Facebook (similar to what Twitter’s looks like).
    • Location-based profiles/actions through Apple’s use of geofencing that customizes different settings like ringtones and Bluetooth based on location.
    • A location and/or time-based notification silencing feature.
    • Siri for iPad.
    • Expanded Siri functions, maybe even including API access for third-party developers.
    • AirPlay: 1080p mirroring.
    • Live app icons. (In lieu of widgets, customizable icons or live app icons would use fewer resources to show updates on the home screen.)
    • Inter-app communication, solving the issue of apps not being able to share data with one another.
    • Unified omnibox in the browser for URL and search.
    • New multitouch gestures. Possibly two finger swiping.
    • Improved multitasking interface and UI.
    • Widgets in notification center.
    • Improved email, maybe even multiple signatures, and possibly a default for each account.

    Predictions for Apple’s iOS 6

    The debate rages on over Apple’s insistence that its mobile and desktop platforms remain closed. The Electronic Frontier Foundation published a report calling for Apple to adopt a more open model for its iOS and OS X.


    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Apple’s closed platforms

    EFF calls Apple’s platforms “beautiful crystal prisons,” because they impose unnecessary limitations on its devices. EFF’s position is that Apple is hurting users by shutting out developers in the open source community. It should mimic Android’s open source model as this is part of the reason for its widespread use by so many device manufacturers.


    On the other side of the argument are those who point out that Apple’s closed model is not just a benefit but one of the most important features of its mobile and desktop devices.


    Eric Testorff, a Technology Coordinator in Crossville, Tennessee, points out the benefits of a closed system in the education environment. His position: “Thank God Apple is the way it is, especially with so many schools purchasing iPads. It is good that it is so difficult for kids to download and install bad Apps. Not every school knows how to police that. At least Apple does some of the policing for us. With Androids, it’s like the Wild West.”

    Apple’s App Store model as provides a level of security that is appealing to businesses as well. As an IT manager at a large privately held company said in a recent interview, “When we decided to dump BlackBerry last year, we ran trials with the iPhone and with Android phones. During the first week of trials alone, I had one guy crash his Samsung from installing a bunch of poorly made software. Then someone else rooted his phone and all of his stock apps stopped transmitting data. This was just the trial; imagine what would happen if we deployed these phones to more than 200 employees across the company.”


    We’ll just guess that his company ended up going with the iPhone.


    Regardless of whether your loyalties lie with Android, Apple or BlackBerry, your devices need the protection of cell phone cases and skins and screen protectors. Make sure they have enough juice wherever they go with wall chargers, car chargers, desktop chargers and spare batteries.

    ASUS unveiled its ASUS Transformer AiO at this year’s Computex trade show in Taiwan. The Transformer AiO is a tablet with a touchscreen display that’s also an all-in-one computer. It’s a dual- boot device that runs both the Windows 8 OS and Google’s Android 4.0.

    The “transforming” tablet sits in a dock and acts like a computer with a giant 18.4-inch display, a mouse and a keyboard. Pop the touchscreen out of the base, and you’ve got a tablet in your hand. But, it’s a tablet with a difference - it isn’t a standalone device like the others in its category. In tablet mode, it has to stay in range of the pc base.

    As innovative as Transformer AiO is, ASUS still has work to do on it. For instance, the display kicks over to Android as soon as it’s undocked. Even detached from the base, the display is supposed to function as a wireless screen for the pc. Switching away from the Windows OS shouldn’t happen automatically.


    ASUS has yet to announce all specifications for the Transformer AiO, but we do know that the docking base features multiple USB 3.0 ports, ethernet and an optical drive. The screen is LED backlit and supports up to 10-point multitouch.

  • ABI Research’s latest study of the global tablet market shows a year-over-year grow rate of an incredible 185%. Apple’s iPad continues to dominate the market, and while it had a good showing in the first quarter of 2012, demand for Amazon’s Kindle Fire is burning out.

Apple iPad 3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab have demonstrated staying power while other tablet vendors such as HTC Flyer, HTC JetStream, BlackBerry PlayBook, Motorola Xoom, Acer Iconia and LG Optimus Tab ebb and flow like the tide.”  ABI’s numbers showed that only two manufacturers increased shipments in the first quarter over the same period a year earlier.


    In a bit of good news for RIM, shipments of its PlayBook tablet grew 233%, and Lenovo. ABI’s press release follows below.
