Huawei smartphone shipments increased 33% in 2014

With the battle for Chinese smartphone dominance in full swing, we’ve heard a lot of speculation as to which company will come out as the dominant mover among the Chinese giants. With 2014 officially gone, Huawei can certainly enter the new year with confidence, as a report indicates the company experienced a 33% increase in smartphone shipments in 2014 alone.

According to an internal memo seen by Reuters, an increase of around a third brought the company’s smartphone  sales to 11.8 billion dollars in 2014, with a total of 75 million devices sold for the year. As impressive as those numbers are, Huawei had originally set a sales target for 80 million devices sold, meaning that even the 40% year on year increase of sales still might not be enough to bring the satisfaction the company had hoped for.

The numbers are scheduled to be officially announced by Huawei within a few weeks, but Maggie Qi (spokeswoman for the company) declined to comment on the internal memo.

The battle for top Chinese vendor between Huawei, Xiaomi and Lenovo Group has not only demonstrated the shift taking place within the smartphone sector, but has also put smartphone powerhouse Samsung in a very tight spot.Regardless of who comes out on top, 2015 is certainly shaping up to be a very interesting year for the smartphone world.


Review – Logitech T650 Rechargeable Touchpad

Windows 8.1 has made us rethink the way we interact with our computers. The traditional type and click keyboard/mouse setup has been augmented with touch screens and gestures, sometimes to the point that mice are being left out of the equation all together in favor of touchpads.

HTC’s Jeff Gordon promises the “best ever” product lineup for 2015, lots of surprises


With 2014 just behind us and CE just days away, it’s no small claim to say that the tech world is waiting for the event with eager eyes. HTC is no stranger to making headlines, and if Jeff Gordon, the company’s Senior Global Online Communication Manager has anything to say (which he does), the year-at-large might be something special.

In a series of Tweets today, Gordon minced no words in claiming that 2015 will see the best product line-up in the company’s history, using such phrases as “blow your mind” and promising “some huge surprises.” Take a look:

It’s important to note that Mr. Gordon didn’t confirm anything specific for CES 2015, though he did make reference to it by noting many companies make product announcements on the 5th, even though the show doesn’t actually open until the 6th.

There have been many rumors and purported leaks circulating around the Internet recently, including continuous mentioning of the HTC Hima, which is largely believed to be the follow-up to last year’s One M8, a device that not only turned heads, but actually made the jump over to Windows Phone as well, perhaps a first for the mobile market.

HTC is also stated to release a sequel to its RE handheld recording device, though it’s unknown if the 2015 variant will feature the same periscope-esque inspiration. In the tablet world, there has been talk of the Taiwanese company offering a non-Nexus “Nexus 9″, which could mean a similar speced piece of hardware with HTC’s signature premium build quality.

The most solid piece of evidence about something interesting coming from HTC next week is this teaser for an upcoming Desire phone.

As Gordon also reminded his followers that HTC is back in (the) black, this year will be a very important one to determine how long the balance sheet remains so. What kind of surprises would you like to see from HTC this year?


Now you can install Google Play on your Amazon Fire phone


Amazon made their debut in the smartphone market by introducing the Amazon Fire Phone. It is an Android powered smartphone featuring Amazon’s very own Fire OS. Although, it is Android but a user can only use the Amazon App store with the Fire Phone, which means no access to Google Play Store but thanks to someone over at XDA, Fire Phone users can now access the Google Play Store. The best part is that there is no requirement of rooting the phone, however it is not something official so be ready to take the risk.

If you are interested in using Google Play Store on your Fire Phone, check out the video below:

Samsung is testing at least three different prototypes of the Samsung Galaxy S6

Samsung intends for the Samsung Galaxy S6 to blow our socks off – this much was obvious when we heard that Samsung had codenamed the Galaxy S6 “Project Zero” as if to imply that they are starting from scratch. Well, it seems Samsung is doing just that, and is actually currently testing with at least three […]
