Samsung Galaxy S II Performs Great in its First Five Months

Written on September 26, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Samsung Galaxy S II had surpassed the record of the original Galaxy S as it obtained over 10 million on sales in just five months.

Samsung cracked another milestone on Sunday, and said that the Galaxy S II passed 10 million sales on its first five months on market. This surpasses the original Galaxy S that took seven months to hit the same amount. The largest piece of Galaxy S II sales 3.6 million, was in Samsung’s native South Korea.

Europe is almost as equal in importance and has seen 3.4 million S II units trade hands to date. Southeast Asia outside of Korea was considerably less of a factor at 2.3 million. The goals include very few of North America, as the Galaxy S II only went on sale in Canada through Bell in July and was otherwise limited to unlock full price versions until this month.

Apple’s Tim Cook: To Reveal iPhone 5 on October 4

Written on September 22, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

The rumor mill is continuously churning, as another report claimed that Tim Cook will reveal the next-gen iPhone on October 4.

According to an insider from AllThingsD, Apple will unveil the iPhone 5 on October 4. The show will be led by Tim Cook, together with Phillip W. Schiller (SVP for Worldwide Product Marketing), Scott Forstall (SVP for iOS Software), and Eddie Cue (SVP for Internet Software and Services.)

However, the devices that will be unveiled on October 4 remains a mystery. New iPods are seem likely to be announced, while others also expects an iPad 3 announcement. But ultimately, many are getting giddy on whether Apple will announce the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S or both. The iOS 5 is also expected to be officially released on the said date, as it’s already nearing its Gold Master version.

If the October 4 turns out to be true, that would mean an almost immediate release of the next-gen iPhone on October 15. But keep in mind that none of these has been officially confirmed, so take it with a pinch of salt.

Brand Finance: Apple is the World’s Second Most Valuable Company

Written on September 17, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Apple is the 2nd placer in the world's top 10 most valuable brands.

Based from the study of Brand Finance, Apple now becomes the world’s second most valuable brand, with over $39.3 billion or 33% more than what it has attained during the first half of the year.

The company looks at its cash flow and overall financial metrics to determine the value of the company’s trademarks and properties. The brand that got the top position is Google, which has an IP that’s worth $48.3 billion — and indeed more after the search engine giant acquired another bag of patents from IBM.

According to the research, this would be the first time that the world’s top four most valuable companies are all tech brands. Microsoft moved to the third place with $39 billion, although the as-of-yet launching of Windows 8 might change that number. Big Blue, on the other hand, got the fourth position. Other big companies have also managed to make their way on the top 10 list: Walmart, GE, AT&T, Coca-Cola, and banks such as Wells Fargo and Bank of America.
