Euro 2008 without Turkey’s Hamit Altintop?

Hamit Altintop is a midfield player for Turkish National football team. He plays for the German club Bayern Munich. So, I don’t need to remind you that Hamit Altintop is now one of the top players of Turkey. If you are a fan of Hamit Altintop then there is a bad news waiting for you. I guess from looking at the headline of this entry, you have already guessed the bad news. Yes, Hamit Altintop is injured and there is hardly any possibility of him playing in Euro 2008.

It will surely affect Turkey in a bad way. Turkey is in a strong group with Switzerland and Austria in Euro 2008.

By the way, on a different note, you should read this entry about poor rural children in Nepal getting OLPC laptops:

Nepal Government Introduced OLPC Project in the Country

You know that OLPC laptops have internet connection. So, I guess that many people in rural areas of Nepal might have the opportunity to know about Euro 2008.

Euro 2008: David Beckham Won but England Lost

2007 and 2008 are not turning good for English football fans. Well, for the first time, 4 English clubs are in the quarterfinals of UEFA Champions League but England’s national football team is just going down and down. Last night, they lost to France. The only consolation is perhaps that David Beckham won his 100th cap for England. So, he was a very happy man. I don’t understand one thing. Beckham is too crazy to continue playing for England national team and yet, he is not playing in English Premier League. I think that if he really wants to be more in England national team then he should come back to England and play there.

The way England national team is playing for the last few months, they would surely think of 2015 laptops instead of World Cup.

Nokia and Samsung to be Winner in the aftermath of Motorola Split, Says Analysts

Following the split of Motorola, the industry analysts are thinking that Nokia and Samsung have something up to grab. It is seen as a good chance for Nokia and Samsung to win some more market share in the absence of Motorola. The split of this global phone maker, Nokia and Samsung are expected to be the short time winner by the analysts. Motorola lost a significant amount of share over the last one year globally which led them go down from second to third place in the fourth quarter of last year. The wrong products the company had last year have been lethal for themselves. However, the industry analysts are still hopeful regarding Motorola to make a come back as the company still has strong presence in the emerging markets like China and India.

PC World reported:

"The short-term winners will be Nokia and Samsung, and maybe Sony Ericsson will be able to increase its market share as well," said Leif-Olof Wallin, research vice president at Gartner.

Ben Wood, director of research at CCS Insight, agreed. "With any change there is some disruption, and competitors can grab market share before it stabilizes," said Wood.

But in the longer term, Motorola can stage a comeback, according to Wood. "The bad news is that Motorola has the wrong products, the good news is that can be changed," he said Wednesday, after the announcement.

Also, a third major vendor in the market is needed to keep Nokia and Samsung in check. "It's needed to provide some balance with Nokia. A Nokia-Samsung duopoly isn't good for anyone," said Wood.

The share of Motorola has been decreased from 21.1 percent to 14.3 percent over the last one year. Well, it sill true that the company still has a good image in India and China and some other South Asian countries. However, it would be very difficult for Motorola to bring back their market share even in these countries if the company makes delay to come back in the market.

China to Investigate Mobile Phone Spam

Spreading spam through mobile phone has been increased in China. So, the country is now going though the matter being wry of increased number of mobile spam. Recently, spam messages were sent to two-hundred million phones in China, which brought the attention of the government. So, China has decided to take the matte seriously. The Government has asked China Mobile and China Unicom, top two careers, to take more initiative to stop mobile spam.

Thetechherald reported:

Mobile spam is something that is not entirely new to the realm of mobile phones. However, while the numbers for mobile spam grow in the US, Asia is by far the victim with an average of eight junk text messages per week, per person. This seems like a small number until you take in account that Chain has more than 555 million mobile users.

Xinhua News Agency is reporting that Zhong Zhihong, an official at the Ministry of Information Industry in charge of information security, is urging China Mobile and China Unicom to do more to block the Spam. He pointed out that it is relatively simple to do on their infrastructure.

Though the situation is still under control and it is still possible to reduce the number of spam through mobile phone, China needs to take effective initiative on the matter. Government should do its best to stop mobile spam involving the phone companies.

Euro 2008 Preparations: France vs England

England is not playing in Euro 2008 and this has caused a lot of unhappiness among English fans. The closest thing that they can get to Euro 2008 is perhaps tomorrows practice match of France vs England. It is an important match for France because France is playing in Euro 2008.

IHT wrote:

France's plans were hit by the withdrawal of strikers Karim Benzema, Thierry Henry and Louis Saha because of injury, although Juventus striker David Trezeguet now has a chance of pressing his claims for a place at Euro 2008 after being called up as a replacement.

France's third all-time scorer with 34 goals, Trezeguet was largely ineffective on his last appearance six months ago in the 1-0 defeat against Scotland and has annoyed coach Raymond Domenech by saying he would not consider playing for the "B" team.

China’s war against Mobile Phone Spamming

Spamming is still mainly confined in Internet. Well, it is slowly spreading to mobile phone too. It has become a very big problem in China. Now, Chinese government is thinking seriously to tackle the issue. Some greedy people have started spamming unwanted text messages that contain advertisements of different products.

AP wrote:

Chinese authorities said Monday they are investigating complaints that millions of cell phone users were spammed with unwanted text messages from advertisers.

The uproar over what China's media has dubbed "Text-message Gate" has drawn apologies from a major advertiser and the country's biggest mobile phone carrier, China Mobile. The commercial text messages were sent to more than 200 million mobile phone users through two companies — China Mobile and its smaller rival, China Unicom.

Nokia Siemens Received Network Expansion Orders in Indonesia

Nokia Siemens Networks has recently declared that they received a network expansion order from Hutchison CP Telecommunications Indonesia (HCPT). However, Nokia Siemens has not unveiled the price of the deal. Under this deal, Nokia Siemens will expand HCPT’s GSM/WCDMA network coverage across the islands of Java and Sumatra activating 2,800 base stations. Nokia Siemens will also roll out the GSM networks in Kalimantan and Sulawesi. Hong Kong based Hutchison possess 60 percent control of HCTP, while Charoen Pokphand from Thailand controls the remaining part of the network.

Reuters reported:

Hong Kong's Hutchison controls 60 percent of HCPT while Thailand's Charoen Pokphand holds the remaining 40 percent.

LG-LH2300: The Touch Web Mobile Phone from LG

If you really want to carry a personal computer with internet access functionality in your handbag or in your pocket, then let me tell you that you are going to have something to cheer on very soon. LG Telecom is going to launch a “Touch-Web” mobile phone which allows its users to experience internet browsing. The LG-LH2300 Touch Web phone will be launched in South Korea in early April, but it is not yet confirmed if LG-LH2300 will come to other market in future. You know that LG has been trying to position in the touch screen segment of mobile phone. Now, the company is going to provide full-fledged internet accessibility in a touch screen mobile phone that the company titles “Touch-Web” phone.

Image source: crunchgear

Features of the LG-LH2300 Touch Web phone

The first thing you need to know when it comes to the major features of LG-LH2300 Touch Web phone is its 3" touch screen display at 800 x 480 resolution. With its VGA (800x480) 3-inch LCD display screen, users can enjoy quality DVD-playback and can navigate the websites at a good level of resolution.

The LG-LH2300 Touch Web phone will make your life a lot easier when you will browse through internet. A jogwheel is provided in the phone by which you can scroll the webpage, instead of following complex functions. The phone also includes a quick search icon by which you will have quicker access to the browser.

Mobilewhack reported:

A new mobile-web centric phone has been unveiled by LG in its native Korea market -- the LG-LH2300 Touch Web Phone. The LG-LH2300 features a 3-inch wide touchscreen LCD with WVGA resolution. Of course, as the phone is web-centric, you can enjoy full internet-browsing capabilities featuring a jog wheel, an Internet hot key, and a Quick Search icon.

The phone set also features a 3 megapixel camera with auto focus. The camera also has a frontal view so that you can use it for video calls. With its T-DMB mobile TV feature, you can have access to digital over-the-air TV. The LG-LH2300 Touch Web phone also offers a microSD memory card slot that you can use for media storage.

electronista reported:

LG also promises a very media-focused device with a 3-megapixel camera at the back (plus front camera for video calls), a T-DMB tuner for picking up digital over-the-air TV in its native country, and a microSD card slot for media storage. "Grape Wine" and "Navy Blue" versions of the LH2300 will be available in early April through LG's own carrier LG TeleCom, where it will sell for between $594 and $694 in local currency.

So, you can see LG Telecom is going to market the phone in two colors: "Grape Wine" and "Navy Blue". No doubt the phone seems to be very attractive and is expected to be a possible competitor for Apple’s iphone. However, I am not yet sure about its exact price tag as different sources shows different price range.

Though the LG-LH2300 Touch Web phone has some cool features for the users, the market is abuzz with a few questions regarding the phone set.

Crunchgear reported:

Expect LG to play up the phone’s Internet capabilities, which may explain why it’s also going by the unfortunate name Touch Web. Supposedly it comes with a “full” browser. What exactly that means, who knows? Is there Flash support? Can I zoom in and out as easily as I can (but don’t) with the iPhone? Tough questions, to be sure.

I think, the LG-LH2300 Touch Web phone is going to have an instant hit in Korean market with its exclusive offers. I hope, LG bosses will prompt to release the set globally in future.

Sony Ericsson W960i

To a causal observer it might seem like Sony Ericsson is hell-bent on running against accepted convention when it comes to mobile phone design at the moment. When we recently reviewed the K850i we expressed our astonishment at the somewhat unconventional D-pad, and while we were pleasantly surprised by the unorthodox design we concluded that it was something of a needless experiment on the part of the manufacturer.

The art of making film is evolving all the time. Most people do videos with their mobile phones do it just for fun.

Nokia is inviting everyone to enter the 2008 Nokia Mobile Filmmaking Awards by creating and submitting their short videos to to be considered for inclusion in the first Pangea Day broadcast event on May 10, 2008.

Pangea Day was created by award-winning documentary filmmaker Jehane Noujaim after winning the prestigious 2006 TED Prize. Together, Noujaim, TED and Nokia have created Pangea Day to connect people by harnessing the power of film and encouraging people to view the world through someone else's eyes.

All five finalists, chosen by online voting, will be flown to Los Angeles for the event.

HTC Dream: The First Mobile Phone based on Google’s Android Software

High Tech Computer Corporation (HTC) has recently unveiled the name of the first mobile phone based on Google’s Android software. HTC has named it “Dream.” Though it is true that HTC Dream is going to be the first handset based on Google’s Android platform, reports have it that the company is going to face tough competition from Samsung very soon as Samsung is also thinking about launching a mobile phone based on Android software of Google.

HTC Dream is going to hit the market later this year with a screen of 5- inches long and 3- inches wide. Users can navigate though internet using internet controls located below the screen of the handsets.

PC World reported:

HTC's Google handset is just over 5-inches long and 3-inches wide, with a keypad underneath the screen that either slides out or swivels out. The aim of the keypad is for easy e-mail, note-taking and writing Web addresses.

The company officially remained mum on the handset.

"We cannot comment on this product," said Maggie Cheng, an HTC representative.

Android is the brain child of Google and its Open Handset Alliance, dedicated to make a open standards for mobile devices. Google, HTC, Samsung, Motorola and some other global handset manufactures are the member of Open Handset Alliance. The members of this consortium will gradually launch their own mobile sets based on Android.

Sony Ericsson Experiencing Slow Mobile Phone Sales Causing Share Fall

Mobile phone manufacturer Sony Ericsson is experiencing a slowed sales growth which has affected badly on the shares of the company. In particular, the situation is more acute for the high-end phone sets of Sony Ericsson. ERIC shares of Ericsson fell by 10.3 percent to 29.33, lowest in four years. Shares of Sony (SNE) fell by 1.9 percent. The possible reasons behind the share fall are slowing growth of high-end phones and the fears of economic slump.

Sony Ericsson is a joint venture of Sony Corporation of Japan and Ericsson of Sweden. Dick Komiyama, the president of Dick Komiyama said:

“The market is proving to be challenging. This has been pronounced in the mid- to high-end replacement sector of the market in Europe, where we have a stronger-than-average market share.”

The average sales price of Sony Ericsson is $189, while Nokia’s average sales price is $129. Now, Sony Ericsson is suffering mostly in the high-end phone markets, where they are facing strong challenges from Apple AAPL iPhone and Nokia’s N95. So, it is certain the high-end market has become tougher for Sony Ericsson at present.

Nokia Experienced Sales Growth Fell in Europe; but Boost up in Asia-Pacific in 2007

Nokia has recently said in a document filed with U.S. regulators that the company suffered a decreased growth rate in Europe last year. According to Nokia, their growth rate in Europe fell to 3 percent in 2007, which was 16 percent the previous year. Moreover, the company also experienced decreased growth in Middle East, Africa, North America and Latin America. Despite the slowed growth rate in these regions, the well-known manufacturers saw a solid boost in its sales in China and Asia Pacific.

Nokia said that the company experienced 34 percent growth in its sales in the Asia-Pacific region last year compared to 27 percent a year before. Similarly, Nokia’s sales volume in China was also increased by 34 percent in 2007, which was 29 in 2006. Nokia’s phone sales in emerging markets contributed 60 percent of its total sales volume in 2007, compared to 55 percent of contribution a year before. According to Nokia, 3.3 billion people use mobile phone in the world at the end of 2007. Just a year before, the amount was 2.7 billion, a 40 percent global growth.

So, it is almost clear that Nokia will try to focus more on the emerging markets like China in future, besides trying to recapture its market in other portion of the world.
