BlackBerry PlayBook Close Up


The top 5 European smartphones for 2010 - FierceWireless:Europe

Apple iPhone 4

1.The top smartphone, and unassailable today. Its appeal is becoming wider within both consumer and enterprise segments, boosted by a growing number of enterprise apps.

Samsung Galaxy S
2. The Galaxy S is a real challenger to the iPhone, in some cases it's an improvement. Priced around a third less than the iPhone4, it will attract buyers wanting a smartphone very close to the Apple device.

HTC desire
3. Now challenging the Galaxy S for volumes, but prospects damaged by early component shortages. Competitively priced with many strong and appealing features.

RIM Blackberry 8520

4. Good brand appeal and low price has driven uptake by new segment. Prepaid has been key to uptake. Not the highest-selling device, but an important indicator for what is possible with BlackBerry devices.

Sony Ericsson x10 mini

5. Premium Android device for the budget-conscious brings Android and SE into a new, lower price. Great build quality.


GSM operators shy away from CDMA acquisitions

Indications are that the much anticipated consolidation in Nigeria’s telecommunications industry will not take place anytime soon as major GSM operators are increasingly shying away from mergers and acquisitions, and paying more attention to improving internal organic growth, analysts told Business Day.

GSM and CDMA are going to end up on a new technology called Long Term Evolution (LTE). In a couple of years, we would see a full scale commercial implementation of LTE. So, if you are going to have a convergence, we are gradually moving to technology neutrality or, if you like, interoperability of devices, networks, and so on.

Starcomms, Multilinks-Telkom, Visafone and ZOOMmobile are the CDMA firms operating in Nigeria’s telecoms industry. Between January and July, CDMA operators in Nigeria lost about 1.08 million active subscribers. Subscriber information made available by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) covering December 2009 to July 2010 shows that active mobile CDMA lines, which stood at 7.7 million in January 2010 dropped to a dismal 6.6 million lines by July.

Also, the ease to change from one network to the other gives GSM operators an edge, whereas, the CDMAs have to buy handsets and subsidise them. This adds to their costs of operation. If a handset is faulty, GSM subscribers can easily buy another handset and swap their SIMs, but for CDMA subscribers, it is not like that. Most times, subscribers have to buy new handsets and re-programme their old numbers. That is one of the reasons why CDMA is not really growing”.

ITU declares LTE-Advanced, 802.16m 4G standards

Geneva - ITU's Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) has completed the assessment of six candidate submissions for the global 4G mobile wireless broadband technology, otherwise known as IMT-Advanced. Harmonization among these proposals has resulted in two technologies, "LTE-Advanced and "WirelessMAN-Advanced being accorded the official designation of IMT-Advanced, qualifying them as true 4G technologies.
In its recent meeting in Chongqing, China, ITU-R Working Party 5D, which is charged with defining the IMT-Advanced global 4G technologies, reached a milestone in its work by deciding on these technologies for the first release of IMT-Advanced. In the ITU-R Report, which will be published shortly, the LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced technologies were each determined to have successfully met all of the criteria established by ITU-R for the first release of IMT-Advanced. The Report is expected to be approved by ITU Member States at the ITU-R Study Group 5 meeting in Geneva in late November 2010.
These technologies will now move into the final stage of the IMT-Advanced process, which provides for the development in early 2012 of an ITU-R  Recommendation specifying the in-depth technical standards for these radio technologies.

ITU also organizes worldwide and regional exhibitions and forums, such as ITU TELECOM WORLD, bringing together the most influential representatives of government and the telecommunications and ICT industry to exchange ideas, knowledge and technology for the benefit of the global community, and in particular the developing world.

From broadband Internet to latest-generation wireless technologies, from aeronautical and maritime navigation to radio astronomy and satellite-based meteorology, from convergence in fixed-mobile phone, Internet access, data, voice and TV broadcasting to next-generation networks, ITU is committed to connecting the world.
ITU is based in Geneva, Switzerland, and its membership includes 192 Member States and more than 700 Sector Members and Associates.
