$6.30 a special number for Google

By on January 10, 2014

Plenty of numbers are important to Google, a company that grew to dominate the Internet by creating search and advertising algorithms that its competitors simply couldn’t find a way to compete with. But today, there is one number in particular that is more important to Google than any other: $6.30. That dollar amount is what Google earns on average per year for each and every Internet user, excluding China. As MongoDB executive Matt Asay explains in a post on TechRepublic, that number shows exactly why Android is so critical to the future of Google’s business.

There are currently 2.5 billion Internet users around the world and that figure is set to increase at an explosive rate. But it’s not PCs that will connect people to the Internet in many emerging markets, it’s low-cost smartphones powered by operating systems like Android. With approximately 7.14 billion people on the planet, that’s a lot of untapped revenue for Google.

$6.30 might not seem like much, especially for a full year. But it adds up very quickly and could translate into billions of dollars — or tens of billions of dollars — for Google each year as more and more people gain access to the company’s services, thus exposing them to its various advertising products.

Bump shutdown annoucementDavid Lieb, CEO and cofounder for Bump technologies (The company was acquired by Google back in September 2013) announced in the official Bump blog that they will officially discontinue the 2 main product which is Bump and Flock on Jan 31 2014. As mention by David Lieb, the application will be removed from Apple App Store and also Google Play, after this date, both app will work and user data will be deleted from their server as well.

We are now deeply focused on our new projects within Google, and we’ve decided to discontinue Bump and Flock. On January 31, 2014, Bump and Flock will be removed from the App Store and Google Play. After this date, neither app will work, and all user data will be deleted.

Bump is an application for iOS and Android devices that let users share data such as contacts and photos simply by bumping their devices together, while Flock is a photo service that creates a single album with photos from multiple devices.

Despite cancelling its event, Google went ahead to launch three new Nexus devices and Android 4.2. The three Nexus devices are the LG Nexus 4, Samsung Nexus 10, Nexus 7 (32GB) in 3G and Wi-Fi models.

The Nexus 4 is a collaboration between Google and LG, which brings together a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM, a 4.7-inch True HD IPS+ display (1280 x 768 pixels), an 8-megapixel rear camera and Android 4.2.

 

Measuring 133.9 x 68.7 x 9.1mm, the Nexus 4 weighs 139g with a 2,100mAh battery. Following in the footsteps of Nokia, the Nexus 4 also supports wireless charging (use any Qi-compatible charger). It comes in two storage capacities, 8GB and 16GB without support for a memory card slot. Unfortunately, the Nexus 4 does not come with 4G LTE capabilities.

 

The Nexus 4 will be available at US$299 (8GB) and US$349 (16GB) from 13th November on Google Play Store in the U.S, U.K, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.

A bigger sibling of the Nexus 7, Google also introduced the Nexus 10 which is manufactured by Samsung. The main highlight of the Nexus 10 is its 10.1-inch HD PLS display with an ultra high resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. This equates to a higher pixel density (330ppi) compared to the third and fourth-gen iPads (264ppi, 2048 x 1536 pixels).

Running under the hood is Samsung Exynos 5 processor with two Cortex-A15 cores running at 1.7GHz, a Mali T-604 GPU and 2GB RAM. Google claims that the Nexus 10 comes with a powerful battery (9,000mAh) that can provide up to 9 hours of video playback and more than 500 hours of standby time. Other specs include:

  • 263.9 x 177.6 x 8.9mm

The 32GB Nexus 7 (3G) will be available from 13th November in the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.

 

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

Less than six months after Google unveiled Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the company took the wraps off “the simplest and smartest version of Android yet”.  It has a few nifty tricks up its sleeve such as: –

  • Photo Sphere: a panorama-like feature where you can capture images in any direction you want to create a 360-degree immersive experience.
  • Gesture Typing: a Swype-like feature that enables you to glide your finger over the keyboard to type messages.
  • Wireless display: watch movies, YouTube videos and play games wirelessly from Miracast-compatible HDTVs.
  • More cards for Google Now: flight information, restaurant reservations, hotel confirmations, shipping details, nearby attractions, interesting photo spots, movies times at theaters in the vicinity or concerts by your favorite artists
  • Multiple user support: ability to add multiple users on a single device and switch between them instantly right from the lockscreen.
  • DayDream: a screen saver which allows you to make use of the display (when idle or docked) to view photo albums or news.

Google is said to be preparing to unveil several new devices and an upgraded Android version during its launch event on 29th October.

 

According to The Next Web, a source with knowledge of Google’s plans claims that the company is releasing a 32GB Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi only, and 3G-enabled), a 10-inch tablet, LG Nexus 4 and Android 4.2.

 

The existence of a 32GB variant of the Nexus 7 has more or less been confirmed by numerous leaks over the past few weeks, with an actual unit landing in the hands of a Japanese customer and entries in numerous inventory systems (1) (2) (3). In addition, the source also said that a 3G version of the 32GB Nexus 7 will be announced.

 

It is also revealed that Google is indeed working with Samsung on a 10-inch tablet. Known internally as the “Codename Manta”, the alleged device is powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The 10-inch tablet is said to be have a display resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (about 300ppi).

 

This isn’t the first time we have heard of such a tablet as reports first surfaced in February, when a trusted source of BGR claimed that Samsung might be launching a tablet with a high resolution display at Mobile World Congress 2012. Three months later, a German coder was exploring Google’s source codes when he stumbled upon signs that indicated a collaboration with Samsung on a tablet.

 

A month after Google unveiled the Nexus 7, DigiTimes alleged that a 10-inch version is in the works and is slated for a launch by the end of the year. The information apparently came from touch panel manufacturers who mentioned that the 10-inch Nexus tablet will use 10-inch display panels from AU Optronics and Wintek.

 

Perhaps the worst kept secret of Google is the LG Nexus 4, which is also been confirmed by the source of The Next Web. The LG Nexus 4 will be equipped with a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 8 or 16GB internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2,100mAh battery.

 

Last but not least, Google will release Android 4.2 Jelly Bean which will bring a number of new features such as “Content in the center”, “Tablet Sharing” and enhanced panoramic camera settings.

 

“Content in the centre” will allow users to access Google Play Store content from a widget while “Tablet Sharing” enables multiple users on a single tablet device. The panoramic camera mode is said to be updated to support both horizontal and vertical movements by default.

 

Apple, Google and Microsoft are vying for their share of media attention in the last week of October as each company is holding its respective launch events one after the other.

Following Apple’s invitation to a media event on 23 October, Google is holding an Android event on 29th October in New York City.

 

Announced via email, the Google invite simply states “the playground is open”. There will also be live streaming of the event via youtube.com/android, which starts at 10 am (ET) or 10 pm (Malaysia Time).

 

It is likely that Google will be unveiling the oft-rumored LG Nexus phone although there are rumors of multiple Nexus devices being launched. The end of October marks several significant launches such as the alleged introduction of the Apple iPad mini and Microsoft’s official launch of Windows 8 / Windows Phone 8.

Google has annouched that Andriod will be separate out from the existing Google Mobile Blog into its own home – Andiod Official Blog.

Here’s what the Google Mobile team had to say about the new home for Android news:

A few months ago, we asked what content you wanted to see more of on the Google Mobile Blog, and the answer was quite clear: more Android! We launched +Android on Google+ and now we’ve launched the Official Android Blog, a new place for you to find all the latest news from the Android team.

Going forward, the new Android Blog will be a must-read for anyone interested in the latest news like today’s Google Wallet announcement. Thanks for being such a great audience over the years.

 

Google added another new amazing feature for their mobile search engine – Handwriting recognition.

 

Users on Android and iOS devices can enable handwriting support by tapping on settings over at Google.com and enabling Handwrite. You’ll need to be running iOS 5 or later on your Apple device or any version of Android other than Honeycomb to take advantage of the new Handwrite technology.

 

Amazingly, up to 27 languages are supported by the new handwriting feature which understandably works best in Google’s own Chrome browser. 3G have been waiting for this feature for sometime because it’s quite slow and counter productive to type using on-screen QWERTY keyboards.

 

The Handwrite feature is very new and it’ll probably take some time before it gets to a standard where it’ll be adopted on a wide-scale by the general population. However, auto-complete will still work when using the Handwrite feature , which should aid its effectiveness.
