Who wants to buy the Nexus One?

nexusone

Popular, much talked about, written in many media, is not going to guarantee a successful product. Google Nexus One already proven this. At launch, the popularity of this phone match your iPhone. But it is weak in the market. This bitter lesson for Google.

Let’s go back to the past. Rumours about the launch of Google‘s mobile phone has been booming on the internet for a few years. Android-based phone aka the T-Mobile G1, has been heating the mobile phone business. But, really awaited by fans of Android is a phone made by Google, Nexus One. The cell phone competes with other Android phone made by HTC, Motorola, Samsung and Sony.

Android phone market really heats up. Mid-December 2009, Motorola has released version 2.0 of the Android based phones. This device is bundled with Verizon’s service providers. The result, surprising: Droid Motorola has sold one million units within a short time, much faster than iPhone sales.

Google also had a dream with Android phones. They provide a new feature that is touch screen. They sure would succeed. Nexus One was born. The difference is, these phones are sold solely by Google, not via the network operator or a conventional mobile phone dealers. Google‘s phone is going to feel great because Google controls every millimeter of hardware and software design.

Nexus One was officially launched January 5, 2010. The cell phone is made by special order to HTC, Google‘s best friend in Taiwan who also produce an Android phone. Software? The most sophisticated, namely Android 2.1, although for a novice user not too different from previous versions. There is only a change in mobile phone display.

Mobile marketing is really against the conventional rule. Sold under-bound type with operator T-Mobile (locked) or type Unlocked which can be used with any operator. But, the phone was sold solely by Google.

Major problems began to emerge. Which was launched by T-Mobile encountering many obstacles. Although T-Mobile are intimates of Google, T-Mobile is the smallest of the four operators of existing operators in the United States. As a result, sales have failed. This problem also faced by phone “Palm-Pre” factory-made “Palm”. No matter how good your cell phone, very few people in America who want to switch numbers.

Consumers also face problems when they wish to purchase directly from Google. Google is not accustomed to selling mobile phones. They only want to serve through electronic orders need several days to get a response. In fact, consumers want to speak directly with a mobile merchant original human.

Nexus One then also be sold through AT&T for an unlocked version. But this version was expensive U.S. $ 530. Unlocked phone is very unusual in the United States, and customers tend to choose the phone that is locked but the price is cheap because it subsidized, like the iPhone. Sales of Nexus One really bad, as reported by Fast Company, in the first week they only sold 20 thousand units in the first quarter of 2010 and their market share is only 2 percent of the total Android phone in the U.S..

At the same time other Android phones capable of great success. HTC Droid Incredible, which is actually similar to the Nexus One but with additional features HTC Sensen graphical display plus a better camera even more successful. Sprint Operator, also partnered with HTC to HTC Evo 4G phones. This mobile 4G (fourth generation), the first in the United States. With many rivals like that, who wants to buy the Nexus One?

Which Wireless Standard Is Right for You?

wi-n

Bored with the slow Hotspot Access? It’s not an age when hotspot access had slow connections like a snail. Perhaps that’s one of “marketing language” if you want to selling hotspot connections. If that’s your problem there are many ways that we can do to trace the problem. The first way is to check how much bandwidth is allocated for hotspot connections. If the problem is bandwidth allocated was small, it’s done, because the answer is to increase bandwidth capacity through the hotspot devices. But if the internet connection is fast but has plugged to an ancient hotspot device, this may be beneficial. This article will try to review the wireless technology that is used to improve hotspot speed. Its can improve download speed, upload speed, and transfer files between PCs. With Wi-Fi networks sometimes transfer data between a PC / laptop with another PC was much slower compared with the data transfer cable media. Why? Currently Network LAN (Local Area Network) which uses media cable has the lowest speed of 10 Mbps, commonly used has speed of 100 Mbps, the latest technology with Gigabit Ethernet capable of 1Gbps data transfer.

Wireless technologies use the IEEE 802.11 standard. The Standard has been developed and improved version of the first generation to the last generation.

1. 802.11

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) made the first WLAN standards. They called it 802.11 after the name of the group that was formed to oversee its development. Unfortunately, 802.11 only supported a maximum network bandwidth of 2 Mbps, is too slow for most applications. For these reasons, 802.11 wireless products are no longer produced.

2. 802.11b

IEEE developing “802.11 standard” started at July 1999. They create the IEEE 802.11b specifications. 802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps, compared to traditional Ethernet.

3. 802.11a

Along with the development of 802.11b, the IEEE made a second extension to 802.11 standard called 802.11a. Because 802.11b gained in popularity much faster than 802.11a, some people believe that 802.11a was created after 802.11b. 802.11a supports bandwidth up to 54 Mbps and signals in the frequency spectrum is set approximately 5 GHz. This higher frequency compared to 802.11b. Higher frequency also means that 802.11a signals have more difficulty penetrating walls and other obstructions. Because 802.11a and 802.11b use different frequencies, the two technologies are not compatible each other.

4. 802.11g

In 2002 and 2003, WLAN products that can support a newer standard called 802.11g appeared on the market. 802.11g is an attempt to combine the best of both 802.11a and 802.11b standards. 802.11g supports bandwidth to 54 Mbps, and uses a frequency of 2.4 GHz for greater range. 802.11g is compatible with 802.11b, meaning that 802.11g access points will work with wireless 802.11b network adapters and vice versa.

5. 802.11n

The third-generation Wi-Fi is the standard for wireless home networks. 802.11n equipment is compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b equipment, and support for faster wireless connections with greater distance. Transfer Rate up to more than 100 Mbps. Using MIMO technologies (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output). Currently on the market have a lot of tech products with 802.11n standard, or often referred to as “Wireless-N”. Thus, the ability to transfer data is more quickly. One way to increase hotspot speed access is using the AP-tech “Wireless-N”, but the wireless client (laptop) also have been supporting the “Wireless-N”. If it does not yet support, will be the same. Second note: whether the Internet connection is above 100 Mbps? By using the “Wireless-N” can increase download speed
