Microsoft Set to Take Over Nokia’s Phone Business for $7.2 Billion.


The Finland phone maker company which once dominated the mobile phone market now falls into the arms of U.S giant software maker, Microsoft. Two days back Microsoft announced that it will now handle Nokia’s phone business and license its patent for $7.2 billion (€5.44 billion) to stand in the competition against its all time rivals, Apple, the developer of trending iPhone & iPad and Google, known for the best mobile operating system, Android.

Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop and Microsoft's CEO Steven Ballmer

It was considered as major step in company’s progress transforming itself 
from software maker for desktop and laptop to mobile phones.
"It's a bold step into the future — a win-win for employees, shareholders and consumers of both companies, It's a signature event" said by Microsoft CEO Steven Ballmer to reporters at Nokia's headquarters in Finland a day ago.

Out of $7.2 Billion, $5 billion (€3.79 billion) are paid for the Nokia mobile phone manufacturing unit including Lumia series and $2.2 Billion (€1.65 billion) are paid for using Nokia’s patent for 10 years license agreement. Also Ballmer added that Microsoft will set up new data center to serve European customers which will cost more than $250 Millions.

It was also part of the news that Microsoft is looking for new leader as Steven Ballmer, current CEO is retiring next year. Nokia’s CEO, Stephen Elop, who left Microsoft in 2010 and joined Nokia as a CEO will rejoin Microsoft after the deal is completed but yet not decided what role he will play. Risto Siilasmaa, Nokia Board chairman will work as CEO till the new CEO is appointed.

It is expected that deal will be completed within the first two or three months of 2014 after approval by Nokia’s shareholders and regulations. If everything went according to schedule, around 32,000 Nokia employees will be transferred to Microsoft who is having 99,000 employees currently.

In 2011, Nokia joint hands with Microsoft to use Microsoft’s software in Nokia’s mobile phones. But still it lacks to beat Apple iPhone and Google Android phones. As now Microsoft will look over mobile phones, it will be interesting to see all the three rivals competing against each other to survive in the market.

Apple iPhone 6: What? When? How?

Apple iPhone 6: What? When? How?


The iPhone 6 is the next big thing, and a lot is riding on it. The Apple iPhone has maintained a monopoly on the Smartphone market since the first iPhone came out. Competitors are finally catching up to the Apple iPhone and it is starting to look like they may finally be taking a big enough bite out of Apples customer base to cause Apple a few problems.

In 2012 the Samsung eclipsed the Apple iPhone for a short time, and there have been times when competing sales have been neck and neck. The iPhone 6 now needs to make as much noise as the Samsung Galaxy S4, or Apple may lose its position as the top Smartphone manufacturer.


What the iPhone 6 may feature


To compete with the Samsung Galaxy S4, it is going to have a 12-megapixel camera. They are going to use an A7 processor, and it is going to have the iOS 7 installed. The size of the screen is still a matter of debate, but most agree that it is going to be bigger than four inches. The size and shape of the screen seems to be a big conversation piece at the moment, but many are sure that Retina 2 technology will be used.


It may have a fingerprint sensor


The iOS7 is still in its beta form but is said to have the BiometricKitUI code bundle. Many believe that this is going to play a part in making a fingerprint sensor an active part of the iPhone 6. Such a security device would make the iPhone 6 quite a desirable product, even if it were simply for the novelty value.

The rumors of the fingerprint technology for the iPhone 6 were fuelled by the patent for a fingerprint scanner being lodged and filed for the iPhone bezel. Apple also own AuthenTec, who would be quite able to add the technology onto a Smartphone without any problems.

We may be waiting a long time for the iPhone 6


Apple have only released information about the iPhone 5S and 5C, which has led many to believe that the iPhone 6 will not be seen until the year 2014. They may try to push out the iPhone 6 during the Christmas season, but if people even suspect that this will happen then they will not buy the two new iPhone 5 versions that are due out in September.

The iPhone Light may redeem Apple


The introduction hinted on how Apple may be losing its monopoly on the Smartphone market. The iPhone 6 may help them regain some ground, but some people believe that it is the iPhone Light that will redeem Apple. Many feel that Apple have lost out so much because their devices are twice as expensive as the next leading brand. The Apple Light is going to be half the price of the Apple iPhone 6, which may result in more Apple Light sales.



The iPhone 6 will have a larger screen


It is going to verge onto being a small tablet device, which is going to blur the line between tablet and Smartphone even more. The new bigger screen is currently the hottest rumor about the new iPhone 6. There is another rumor that the device is going to have an infinite screen. This is a screen that wraps all the way around the device so that you may view web pages from intimate angles.


A Retina 2 display is expected


The Retina 2 display is going to provide an edge-to-edge display, and the device is said to be stronger than ever in its design. The new iPhone 6 is rumored to be made from a carbon-aluminum mix that will make it stronger than carbon fiber. To make the retina display stronger they are going to coat it with graphine, which should make it a lot tougher.

The iPhone 6 may be made of colored aluminum


Not only would this act as a good excuse to produce iPhones in a wide variety of colors, the materials will also allow the manufacturer to make lighter and thinner cases. This may mean that plans for a case made of a carbon and aluminum mix may mean it has an aluminum finish, allowing for a number of different colors to be fashioned into the case.

In the Market


Both the phones were checked and it was observed that performance is quite good but still user interface lags much while scrolling down the web pages. Websites take a moment to load also when connecting over Wi-Fi. But still if you are getting it for €70, I don’t think it is a bad choice. Yet Company hasn’t declared exact date of its release.
