India next target for Chinese, Taiwanese smartphone makers

India next target for Chinese, Taiwanese smartphone makers

MUMBAI -- Chinese smartphone manufacturers are shaking up the Indian market as they rapidly gain popularity and shift the balance of power in the country's mobile sector.
     Since entering the Indian market in July, Beijing Xiaomi Technology has quickly caught on thanks to its strategy of selling its Mi 3 smartphone through limited-quantity, Internet-only sales events.
     Xiaomi has been offering a fixed number of Mi 3s once every week through an online shop of its local partner, Flipkart. Each weekly event has seen the supply of handsets sell out within seconds.
     The fifth of these events, held on Aug. 19, was no exception. In total, these events have sold well over 50,000 units.
     The Mi 3 carries a price tag of 13,999 rupees ($231). In a market where smartphones typically go for 4,000 rupees to 5,000 rupees, the Mi 3 is not cheap. But the unconventional sales approach seems to be paying off, as the model is selling well.
     Xiaomi plans to launch two more models in India soon. One of them, a model called Redmi 1S, will be priced at 6,999 rupees.
More chances
Taiwan's Asustek Computer is also stepping up efforts to cultivate the Indian market for smartphones. The company launched its Zenfone series in India this summer, with the most basic model offered at 5,999 rupees. The series has been selling well.
     Indian startups, such as Micromax Informatics and Karbonn Mobiles, have done well in the local smartphone market in the past several years, with the two now claiming the second- and third-largest market shares.
     According to U.S. research firm IDC, South Korea's Samsung Electronics commanded a 29% market share for smartphones in the April-June quarter, followed by Micromax at 18%. For the Indian mobile device market as a whole, Micromax had a 14% share against Samsung's 17%.
     Chinese makers, such as Huawei Technologies, have already tried to sell smartphones in India, but they made little impact as local players grew dramatically. Xiaomi's marketing methods, however, have helped spark consumers' interest in new brands.
     Motorola Mobility, too, has maintained a certain amount of presence in the Indian smartphone market. But the U.S. company is now attempting to sell its handset business to China's Lenovo Group. If this happens, competition for bigger slices of the massive Indian smartphone market will likely escalate, with much of the push coming from Chinese and Taiwanese makers.

T-Mobile drops iPhone 5S by $48, iPhone 5C by $50

T-Mobile drops iPhone 5S by $48, iPhone 5C by $50

The no-contract 16GB iPhone 5S, for example, is now shipping for $600 -- down from the $648 the carrier was previously charging.
Apple's iPhone is suddenly a bit cheaper at T-Mobile.
T-Mobile on Wednesday reduced its iPhone 5S pricing on all versions by $48. The company's full-price, off-contract 16GB iPhone 5S is now $600. The 32GB model is selling for $700, and the 64GB version is going for $800.
T-Mobile offered similar treatment to the 16GB iPhone 5C, which is now going for $5oo off-contract with a $50 discount from the previous price. The 32GB iPhone 5C is selling for $600 with a $48 price cut.
It's unclear whether the price cut is temporary or permanent, but T-Mobile's site dubs it a "sale."
The TmoNews blog reported Tuesday that discounts were coming to T-Mobile's line of iPhones. Although T-Mobile's website only lists the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, TmoNews claims discounts will also be available on legacy iPhone models still in stock at some stores.
It's hard to say for sure what's behind T-Mobile's move. The company over the last year has been on a tear, dubbing itself the "Uncarrier" and making broad changes to its plans and policies to attract more customers. In June, T-Mobile announced a deal to let people try out a iPhone 5S on the carrier's network for seven days before deciding whether to purchase it.
While it's certainly possible that the new discount is just T-Mobile being T-Mobile, the move may be designed to deplete the company's current stock of iPhones. Apple is expected to hold a media event on September 9 to unveil the iPhone 6. At least some of the Apple handsets currently on the market are expected to be discontinued.
In the past, many iPhone retailers start offering deals on the company's products to reduce their inventory in anticipation of a new handset. It's possible T-Mobile's move is a preemptive strike as it readies its stores for the iPhone 6.

The 10 Top Earning Bloggers In The World

The 10 Top Earning Bloggers In The World

The 10 Top Earning Bloggers In The World
Blogging, so much a part of daily lives today, actually took a while to catch on before becoming enormously successful – practically overnight. Blogging began to rapidly spread in 1999 and shortly thereafter thanks to a few nearly-simultaneous creations of blog tools: Open Diary (1998), LiveJournal (1999), (1999), and (1999).
In 1997, John Bargerm, editor of Robot Wisdom, coined the term “web-log” while attempting to describe the daily list of sites that he “logged” onto during his web travels. A few years later Peter Merholz used the word in his sidebar but made the creative decision to split the word into two: we blog. It wasn’t long after that, that Evan Williams at Pyra Labs began using the word “blog” on its own as both a verb and a noun, before finally creating the term “blogging” in association with Pyra Labs’ Blogger product.
Today, blogging is more than a familiar term. Many of us interact with blogs on a daily basis in one way or another; whether we write our own blogs, contribute to a blog, or just enjoy reading and commenting on them, blogs are huge part of the online experience.
Many people have chosen to make blogging their lifestyle, and their livelihood. And as we delve into the earnings associated with the top ten bloggers in the world today, it becomes clear why these people decided to make the success of their blog down their career path. Blogging, as a profession, has proven to be quite lucrative but not many people realize just how lucrative a successful blogging career can be.
However, creating a wildly successful, lucrative blog is no easy feat. The blogosphere is competitive, and it takes an extreme amount of dedication, a fair amount of talent, a good amount of business sense, and a whole bunch of luck for a blog to become one of the most popular in the cyberverse.
With 33.9 million new blogs being created every month and over 60,328,496 blogs on sites like, the following blogging stars have truly emerged from the masses and have risen to the top of the blogosphere for a great many reasons. One thing they all have in common, though; none of these bloggers would have attained this level of influence and wealth if they didn’t have drive, passion and expertise in their respective niches.

Tips: How to install Android beta apps and .apk files

Tips: How to install Android beta apps and .apk fileS

Step 1: Download and extract the file
Tips: How to install Android beta apps and .apk files
What’s an .apk file? Every time we post about beta applications, the comment section inevitably fills up with people confused about how to download and install Android apps that are not in the Android Market. Well, we can’t keep typing the same information, so here’s a simple explanation of how to do it.
Developers often do beta testing, which is where they distribute a pre-release version of their app so they can have people test it before it’s uploaded to the Android Market. They often distribute these Android apps as .apk files. Here’s how to install them.

  1. Files are often distributed in “” or “appname.rar” archive files. Windows PC’s can typically open .zip files natively, but you can download WinRAR if your computer doesn’t have that feature.Note: if the file you download looks like “appname.apk” you can skip to Step 2.
  2. Open the archive and Extract the file to “My Documents” or any other folder you can easily access. You can also just right-click “appname.rar” and select “Extract Here” as a shortcut.

Step 2: Mount your SD card

  1. Connect your phone and computer through a USB cord. Drag down the Notification Bar on your phone and then press “USB Connected”. Then press “Mount” on the tab that pops up.
  2. You should then see a screen that looks like this:
  3. Select “Open folder to view files”

Step 3: Copy the files to the SD card

  1. Make note of the location of your SD card. See how it says “Sony Ericsson D:” in the image above? That’s the drive letter.
  2. Go to the folder where you downloaded or extracted the appname.apk file. Right-click the file and select “Send to Sony Ericsson D:” (You can also just drag it to the D: drive if that’s easier for you).

Step D: Installing

  1. Once the file has copied, disconnect your phone from the computer and then download Astro from the Android Market.
  2. Open Astro and go to the /sdcard folder. Click on appname.apk and then install the application. Accept the warning about installing apps from untrusted sources. As long as you avoid illegal sites and display the same common sense you use to protect your PC, you should be okay installing from trusted developers.
Note: Astro also includes a way to unzip files directly within the app, but it’s best to use that when you download files directly on the phone.

AppBrain adds new install from any website feature; Androinica will adopt it

AppBrain adds new install from any website feature; Androinica will adopt it


Since 2008,’s staff has worked hard to highlight the best applications. During that time, we made it a priority to include QR codes in our posts to make installing those apps easier. We have also highlighted AppBrain, a great service for installing apps directly from the desktop browser.
In an effort to give users both options, will be adopting AppBrain’s new install feature that includes both direct install links and QR codes for scanning barcodes. I know that some of you QR enthusiasts won’t like having to click a link for the barcode to appear rather than have it displayed directly in the post, but it can become very tedious (and ugly) including them – especially in app lists.
From now on when you want to install an app, click the “Install app” link and you will get the following options:
  • If on a desktop, you’ll get a preview image showing a QR code or the option to perform a Fast web install.
  • If on a phone, you will go directly to the Market page (if the app is available in your market).
Our frequent championing of AppBrain was a sore spot for some users who complained that we didn’t follow suit and include AppBrain install options in our posts. It wasn’t easy getting both links and QR codes, so we opted to use QR as the common standard favored by most Android users. The new AppBrain install feature can please both parties.

Tips: trim your bloated contacts list with a custom sync group

Tips: trim your bloated contacts list with a custom sync group

phone. My phone has hundreds of contacts because Google auto-adds people I frequently email. That’s a great feature in Gmail, but its annoying on Android because I’m unlikely to call more than 20% of the people stored in my phone.

The simple fix for this problem is to create a special group of people to sync between Android and Google Contacts. This will give me much more control over who appears on my phone’s contacts.
WARNING: This method removes many contacts from syncing to the phone, which will affect the auto-complete feature in the Gmail application. Include people you frequently email if you want to auto-complete their address.

On Your Computer

  1. Login to and click the “Contacts” tab. Then click the “Add Group” button that looks like this:
  2. Label your new group “Android” or whatever term you choose to classify contacts.
  3. Click on the “All Contacts” link to choose who will be included in your new group. Select as many people as you want by pressing the square radio button next to each person’s name.Tip: Clicking away from a name could erase all of the links that you post. I recommend adding people in groups of 10-20 to be safe.
  4. Once your members are selected, click the “Groups” button and select “Android” to add them to that group.

On Your Android phone

This process may differ if your phone has a heavily-customized version of Android!
Android Contacts app
  1. Open the “Contacts” app and press Menu> Edit Sync groups
  2. Select “Android” or whatever name you assigned to your group
  3. Press OK and you should be good to go.
Sony Ericsson Phones (XPERIA X10)
  1. Press Menu > Settings > Data & Synchronization
  2. Press Group Synchronization and then make sure that only “Android” is selected.
  3. Press OK and you’ve now cut your contact list from 450 people to 105 relevant names you actually call or text.
  4. Be sure to add new contact entries crated on the phone to the “Phone” contacts group to maintain two-way syncing.
HTC Hero
  1. Open the “People” app and scroll to the right until you reach the Groups icon

  2. Press Menu and select “Sync Groups”
  3. Select “Android” and you’re phone will update to a more manageable list

A Guide to Making Your Android’s Battery Last a Little Longer

Improve battery life on Android
A common complaint among Android users is short battery life. As we all now, Google’s platform has numerous benefits, but state-of-the-art features and constantly being connected seem to come with one drawback: comparatively large battery consumption.
I don’t suggest that you should stop taking advantage of the things that make Android great, such as streaming music players that allow you to walk around with millions of songs in your pocket, location-aware apps, background updates or all the wireless options. Still, if you’re frustrated by how often you need to connect your charger, it’s good to know what types of apps and activities that eat the most battery, so you can make an active decision whether or not it’s worth the extra juice.

Use the GPS Wisely

The GPS uses the battery like there’s no tomorrow. Location-aware software is one of Android’s many fortes, but they can be real battery drainers. The Power control widget is useful for switching the GPS on and off, and you should keep an eye on your notification bar: an icon will appear whenever the GPS is activated.
The GPS icon in the notification bar

Turn off Bluetooth When You’re Not Using It

Perhaps an obvious tip, but it’s best to disable Bluetooth whenever you’re not actually using it. The quickest way to switch Bluetooth off and on is via a widget on your homescreen.
Bluetooth button on the Power control widget

Disable Wireless Network Positioning

When your device learns your location via wireless network triangulation, it requires less battery than if it had used the GPS. But using both methods simultaneously will of course use the most power. The GPS can handle location tasks by itself, albeit a bit slower. Also, wireless network positioning is used to gather anonymous Google location data in the background, which will drain the battery further. You can turn it off from Settings > Location > Use wireless networks.
Disable wireless network positioning

Switch off Wi-Fi, or Keep it Always On

If you’re close to a reliable WLAN during the better part of the day, having Wi-Fi always turned on may be favorable from a battery point of view, since the Wi-Fi radio uses less battery than the 3G radio. And when Wi-Fi is on, 3G is off. You can confirm Wi-Fi always stays on by going to Settings > Wireless networks > Wi-Fi Settings. Press the Menu button, tap on AdvancedWi-Fi sleep policy and select the Never option.
On the other hand, if you’re not close to a strong Wi-Fi signal for extended periods of time, disable Wi-Fi from a homescreen widget or from Settings > Wireless networks > Wi-Fi.

Disable Always-On Mobile Data

The Always-On Mobile Data option is on by default, and can be disabled from Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Enable always-on mobile data. It allows your phone to be connected non-stop, but does it need to be? I have disabled the setting, and I still get push Gmail and even Google Talk seems to perform as usual, as well as the few apps I have that use automatic updates. However, if you have a lot of apps that regularly connect to the Internet, disabling this option may actually be a bad idea, since turning the data connection on and off will require more energy than simply having it on all the time.
The Always-on mobile data setting

Kill 3G if Your Phone Often Struggles to Find It

When your Android attempts to decide which signal to lock on to, it strains your battery. If your phone often switches between GSM and 3G in your area, it can be preferable to simply disable 3G altogether, and hence abolishing the need for your phone to try and find a suitable network. Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Network mode > GSM only.

Use a Quick Screen Timeout

After a certain time of inactivity, your screen is automatically turned off, and that’s the Screen Timeout. To use such a low value as 15 seconds can be annoying, but one minute is on the other hand likely too long. I use 30 seconds. You can alter this option from Settings > Screen & display > Screen timeout.

Turn Down the Screen Brightness

Android’s Automatic brightness (Settings > Screen & display > Brightness) setting is recommended. If your phone doesn’t have this option, set a reasonable value at roughly 30 % and see if that suits you.
Use the Automatic brightness options

Live Wallpapers Will Use More Power than a Static Background

Oh yes, live wallpapers can be awesome. But they will obviously use precious battery juice, albeit evidently not as much as one could think, talking the eye-candy into consideration and what they can do.

Have an AMOLED Display? A Dark Wallpaper Will Spare the Battery

When having dark backgrounds, phones with AMOLED display will use less power, because each pixel on OLED screens is photoemissive and will actually generate its own light. Since there’s no need for a backlight, the pixel can essentially turn off its light source and go total black. As a result, you can save a teeny-weeny bit of energy by having a dark or black background on AMOLED screens.

Use Widgets Wisely

A few days ago, we mentioned 10 cool homescreen widgets, and it’s great that Android supports them. Most widgets will only have a negligible effect on your battery life, but those that automatically pull info from the interwebs can be power hogs.

Use Reasonable Intervals for Automatic Updates

I personally don’t need to have automatic updates on my phone, except for emails that I want to be notified of the moment they arrive. I prefer launching the apps at my convenience and see what’s new. Most applications that connect to the Internet have an option to update upon launch, and that’s all I need. By lowering the update intervals, or by even turning them off completely, you can definitely make your battery last longer. I recommend that you reduce them to your own minimum values.
If you have an Android phone with HTC Sense, you can make sure the HTC Mail Client, the HTC Weather App, Facebook, Flickr, Stocks and Twitter update themselves as often as you want them to. This is mainly done from Settings > Accounts & sync. It’s also a good idea to look over third-party apps that grab data from the Internet, particularly the official Facebook app and the various Twitter apps, since they usually have background updates on by default.

Streaming Apps Will Use a Lot of Battery

In a recent Droid vs Droid special, Andrew did a rundown of music streaming apps, and I certainly don’t think you should avoid this type of application on your phone. But bear in mind that software that stream audio and similar apps will use plenty of power.

Unless you have the doubtful pleasure of still running Cupcake, you can check out a built-in Android feature that tells you precisely how much your apps use the battery. You can then start using battery drainers less often, or simply uninstall them. Go to Settings > About phone > Battery > Battery useand press the items in the list for further info. You can also use JuicePlotter to analyze usage patterns.

I have gotten good results by making the tweaks and changes above, and I hope you will too. Do you know of any more tricks that can make our dear Android stay on his feet a bit longer before it needs to be charged? In case you don’t want to keep all this in mind, an app such as JuiceDefender is a good option.
