Screens tablets will continue to grow: study

By 2019 the number of tablets with screens larger than 11 inches represent 7 percent of the tablet market globally, research firm Strategy Analytics said Thursday.

In a new report the company said that the success of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 with its 12-inch display screens and other hybrid computer manufacturers like Lenovo, Acer and Asus boost sales of the new tablet iPad Pro Apple It rumored to have a screen of 12.9 inches. Overall, Strategy Analytics predicts will be like a tide that will lift sales of tablets. Even by the end of 2015, predicts that the distribution of tablets with large screens will increase by 185 percent compared to the final figure of 2014.

Just as tablĂ©fonos have taken away market share to tablets with small screens, the gap between PCs and tablets is reduced every day, “said Eric Smith, leader in the unity of tablets and touch screens to Strategy Analytics analyst.” The main suppliers are pushing the boundaries of the three major mobile operating systems and hardware configurations to transform the tablet into a content creation device “.

The report also states that the ultra-portability and versatility of tablets 2-in-1 and premium devices like the Surface Pro 3 and iPad Pro will allow tablets to increasingly serve new market segments, such as fieldwork , healthcare, retail point, education and even work desk.

Consequently, growing market share of tablets with screens of 11 inches or more will cause the fall of the distribution and sales of tablets from 7 to 7.9 inches. According to Strategy Analytics, the segment will shrink to stay with 30 percent market share in 2019, compared to 45 percent who had the end of 2014. They predict that the distribution of tablets of 8 to 8.9 inches will grow to 31 percent from 21 percent in 2014.

But a screen of 12.9 for iPad Pro tablet may sound great, but it is not the largest that has been rumored. Samsung could is developing a tablet of 18.4 inches.

MediaTek Previous 361 Smart Shoe

BARCELONA – Unlike health monitors and other technology products dress, it is very difficult to forget put your shoes before leaving. What makes a nifty place to put a GPS tracker to know where your loved ones are. We are introducing children’s shoes 361, with MediaTek technology.

To create the shoes, the Taiwanese chip maker MediaTek has given the team to 361, a huge Chinese shoemaker. Smart shoes in China will next month. A spokesman said MediaTek will cost about 500 yuan. No go on sale in the rest of the world, but to give you an idea, that’s about US $ 80.

Inside the shoe is a Aster MediaTek processor with 4MB of memory and a GPS chip, which records go where shoes and sends the information to an app on your phone. So you can see on your phone the whereabouts of your child. Additional functions that can be added to the app include geographical boundaries, which would send a signal to your phone when the shoes out of a predetermined area.

The first version of smart shoes is designed for young children, with fun and bright in tennis with a wide design colors. The battery recharges shoes without connecting. Children simply remove them and put them in a wireless base station to recharge. The chip inside does not use too much energy, so 520mAh battery lasts a couple of days.

Potentially, the smart technology could be used in other shoes, perhaps designed for seniors or others at risk for relatives or caregivers can track their movements.

The most obvious concern is safety. Each time a device sends information to another, this information is potentially vulnerable to being intercepted. Parents face a unique modern dilemma: prefer the risk of not knowing where your children are, or risk that others can also get that information?

Other people may also worry about individual privacy. This perhaps is no problem with young children who need to be watched all the time, but with older children or elderly people who deserve some degree of autonomy.

Andrew House, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment said in an interview with The Financial Times that the new console, internally known as “Neo”, not yet have a release date, but that it will cost more than the current console with a price of US $ 350.

Neo is aimed at consumers with 4K TV and passionate players. House added that the new console will not be presented at E3 this year, the largest in the video game industry in Los Angeles from next week’s show.

House said he did not present the console at E3 because they prefer to wait to have an ecosystem of ready games for the console and display both, before having a product not finished.

Neo’s arrival does not mean the disappearance or discontinuance of the current PS4, as House told the FT that both consoles will be sold at par during the life cycles of both. This sounds consistent, because the PS4 would be for gamers without 4K TV.

Scorpio would have a power of 6 teraflops (or floating point operations per second, a measure of performance of a device), reported the site, while Neo would just 4.14 teraflops.
