It’s more important than ever for companies to stay relevant and up-to-date in order to survive and thrive in this modern business landscape. Companies must constantly innovate their product offerings so they may be in line with technological advancements and expand into untapped markets. Many companies even move physically from prime downtown locations to wider, cleaner, greener industrial areas along the suburbs.
We all like having fun. Different people will try different ways to entertain themselves and that wide range of options is a human feature. But you might have noticed that today almost each and every person possesses some kind of a gadget. While only fifteen years ago people were stunned by the Snake Game on Nokia 3310, the gadgets of today serve as mobile hubs of entertainment and fun. But how to take the best of it all?
Every year, manufacturers and industry insiders gather at the Mobile World Congress to celebrate the latest in mobile and digital technology. From smartphones and smartwatches to virtual reality headsets and internet ready bicycles the MWC is a veritable smorgasbord of gear and gadgetry. Industry leaders, like Samsung, Microsoft, and HTC, come to the MWC to unveil their latest products and to hint at what’s in store for the future. Some of those products will take the world by storm, while others will become minor footnotes in the history of mobile communications. This year saw an impressive array of new gadgets poised to storm the international market, and as always the latest smartphone models garnered much of the attention.
I do, fondly. I had the Nokia 3210 and I loved it. I think I had around 3,000 different covers for it:
Ah yes many many hours spent playing snake ‘just one more time’… On an even less serious note, check out the infographic below that I found whilst trawling for images of old phones. It was created by Big Brother All Security and is bang on the money.
2014 has only crossed its first quarter but it has already time to have a look at some of the hottest and most sensational gadgets for the year. In today’s times, most gadget makers will aim at streamlining the functions and making everything smarter. This means that the new age gadgets and gizmos will work great in making everyday life smoother and smarter as well. The hottest and most sensational gadgets are those which will make life look beautiful and exceptionally fast. Here is a look at some of the gadgets which have made great news so far in 2014 as well.
HP, which has made quite a name for itself in terms of computers and netbooks, may be all set to make it big in the tablet market. This year, its plans of launching new products such as the Chromebook netbook has made it one of the most awaited gadgets of our time. The fact that it runs on a Google OS makes the crucial difference. This shows how HP is gearing up for tablets in the near future. But for now, the Chromebook is a netbook that is way lighter than most other netbooks and computers in its category. The display screen and 6-hour battery are as usual killer. And if your Chromebook ever happens to go down in the South of Britain, you can take it to a laptop repair shop in London that has the capability to service machines based on the newer range of operating systems such as those created by Google.
Fitbit Zip Activity Tracker
There are some gadgets which will be so, so simple and yet so useful in our daily life. One such gadget is this year’s Fitbit Zip activity tracker device. For those, who worry that they are becoming couch potatoes, this device will actually aid you in the process of tracking all your activity levels. This means that you can actually know whether you have been active or not. The device will actually track your fitness regime and make sure that you work harder to stay fit. With cool and trendy colors, it becomes also easy to carry it everywhere as well.
For a very long time, basic level players like Transcend, Seagate and Kingston have ruled the roost in the case of basic and advanced storage and media transfer devices. 2014 marked the entry of biggie Google into the field of storage and streaming. This actually makes a lot of sense. The Chromecast is a simple USB powered device that can be connected to your TV and to your smartphones or laptops simultaneously. This means that you can now stream the YouTube and ITunes content on your TV and so on. Therefore, TV watching will now be very fun.
Nokia Lumia 1320
With the new Android leverage in terms of apps, Nokia seems to have got a booster shot, along with the Microsoft deal. The Nokia Lumia 1320 seems to be a hot machine for the original Nokia fans and aficionados. The Lumia 1320 comes with Windows Phone 8 OS, fully compatible with ninety percent of the Android Apps. It also has a brilliant 720p display screen, unlike any other smartphone, save for Apple. And it is also 4G compatible as well. There is nothing else that you can ask for in this exceptional Nokia outing.
Google Nexus 7
How can Google stay away from the fun of it all? So, it launched the Nexus 7 tablet which is hot competition for Apple and Samsung. At 200 pounds, it is expensive than most but it delivers bang for the buck. The build quality and appearance are slick. The battery life goes on for a whopping 10 hours at full stretch. And the 1920×1200 pixel display is something that can even rival Apple’s Retina Display and leave the Californian boys fuming as well. This Google device might be the gamechanger in the tablet market for once and for all.
B and N Nook HD
Ultimately, we come to the best gadget of the year. This is the B and N Nook HD which turns out to be the smoothest and suavest tablet abled by Google. Barnes and Noble have come up with it to combat Amazon’s Kindle in the field of e-readers for the bookworms out there. At 7 inches, it is large and it also runs with a customized Google system. It is available only at 80 pounds which is ridiculously cheap for everyone. And ultimately, it is the thing that every bookworm will love, stripped to basics and no-nonsense.
After Apple’s launch event of 5S, some mobile manufacturers took to Twitter to poke fun at the tech giant’s new launch. Some of these mobile vendors live in glass houses. One of them was Nokia mocking Apple’s colorful smartphone shutting eyes on its own Lumia series. Most importantly, it was Motorola poking fun at the new iPhone’s fingerprint scanner forgetting that in 2011 it had launched its very own smartphone with a fingerprint scanner on the rear.
