China’s Internet Boom Starts to Fade
Investor confidence, so high when Alibaba brought its record $25 billion initial public offering to market last September, is being undermined now by a wave of poor earnings at Chinese technology companies.

Check out the new phones and tablets of the week

March 22, 2015 Leave a comment

Understandably, the aftermath of MWC 2015 hasn't seem much new hardware. It is only natural that the event exhausted manufacturers, so we haven’t really been getting a lot of device announcement lately.

This week, however, there has been some new and interesting announcements for us. First up, is the Microsoft Lumia 430 Dual SIM. The small Windows Phone device is Microsoft's latest effort to captivate low-end markets, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. It is powered by a rather outdated Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with 1.2 GHz with 1GB of RAM and has a rather small 4-inch 800×480 pixels display. On the plus side, the Lumia 430 Dual SIM will retail for the price of $70 and you really can't ask for more with that budget.

Samsung also had a few devices to show off during the past few days. There is the new budget Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 V tablet. It offers a 7-inch WSVGA display and is powered by a Spreadtrum chipset with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and a single gig of RAM. Price is around $135, which is definitely a good deal for the hardware.

Joining it, are two other tablets – the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7. As their names, suggest, they are mostly identical, except for the screen size. Both offer a slight improvement over the previous model in terms of hardware and should be available for purchase sometime this April.

HTC had a new phone to show as well – Desire 820s dual sim. It also made the round a few days ago and is essentially a Mediatek variant of the standard Desire 820. Last, but not least, there is a tablet curtsey of Acer. It is available in a rather confusing range of hardware variants and is essentially a mid-range offer.
