Don’t use it on production

I know this has been said over and over, but please don’t use an alpha on a production site. This release serves two main purposes:

2) Marketing preview so the world can know what’s coming.


Polaroid Z2300: Modern Take on a Classic Camera

A few years ago, I was ecstatic to find my parents’ old Polaroid 660 camera in their basement. As much as I love the features of my digital camera, I missed the Polaroid’s ability to print out an instant memento.


T-Mobile Breaks the $100 Barrier With No-Contract Android Phone From ZTE

The long-talked-about arrival of the $100 Android phone, without a contract or carrier subsidy, is now a reality.

T-Mobile on Thursday announced plans to start selling the T-Mobile Concord, a low-end Android device from China’s ZTE. The phone is basic for a smartphone, running the older Gingerbread flavor of Android and packing just a two-megapixel camera and a 3.5-inch screen.

Still, that’s certainly plenty of smartphone for some, and it breaks new ground when it comes to its starting price. It’s available now at Walmart, and starting on Aug. 26 at Target.



South Korea Court Says Samsung, Apple Infringed Each Other’s Patents

A South Korea court on Friday delivered a split decision in its piece of the global legal battle between Apple and Samsung Electronics over mobile computing patents.

A three-judge panel in Seoul Central District Court said Apple infringed two Samsung technology patents, while Samsung violated one of Apple’s patents. The court awarded small damages to both companies and said they must halt sales of the infringing products in South Korea.

None of the banned products are the latest models of Samsung or Apple devices.

iPhone Ranked Seventh in China’s Smartphone Market — Watch Out, ZTE

Apple’s iPhone has been gaining a lot of traction in China recently. As Apple CEO Tim Cook said during the company’s third-quarter earnings call, greater China accounted for two-thirds of Apple’s revenue in the Asia-Pacific region during the period.

“In terms of iPhones in general in mainland China, we were incredibly pleased with our results,” Cook said. “We were up over 100 percent, year over year.”

That’s an impressive achievement. But Apple still has a lot of work to do in China before the iPhone claims the same levels of market penetration it enjoys in the U.S. In China, the iPhone has captured about 7.5 percent of the smartphone market, compared to rival Samsung, which has claimed more than 20 percent, according to IHS iSuppli. Despite its popularity in the country, the iPhone is still ranked seventh in the Chinese smartphone market.
