Hard to find any benefit for users

Consumer Reports has analyzed the merge between AT&T and T-Mobile and their conclusion down not point to any clear benefit for consumers. The price will go up. The quality will go down until it reaches the level of in satisfaction of At&T users.

Very AT&T

Like I said yesterday, the switch to AT&T is the worse thing that can happen to T-Mobile customers. Here is a report about how AT&T is planning to force T-Mobile users to switch to AT&T. I'll be a T-Mobile user until that moment when my phone won't work any more. When that happens I'll cancel my account and move my number to another provider.

AT&T buys T-Mobile

It's like I waked up into a nightmare where you are being chased by a monster or a murder. I was a client of AT&T for all my phone requirements, land line and cellphone. And I cancelled both services because of the high prices and the most important thing because of the bad support service brought to me by this company. Now this company that the only thing has given me are bad memories, high blood pressure, headaches and penalties in cancellation fees is coming and buying my current cell phone service provider. Is not this a nightmare?

Toshiba Android Tablet At Amazon

It seems that Toshiba is preparing conditions to start selling the still unnamed Toshiba Android Tablet at Amazon. If the name still unknown the price still a huge question mark. And I said huge because we are used to see huge price tags from Toshiba and I do not expect to see a miracle in this case. The specs in this case are again a lot better than what we see in those Tablets made by Apple.

But I have one question to Toshiba: battery life? Yes, I know that we are talking about a replaceable battery but still, I'll appreciate if you dedicate at least two words in your huge product description at Amazon to tell me what is the battery life. Thanks.

WiFi Motorola Xoom confirmed

Motorola confirmed that the price for the Xoom with WiFi only and 32 Gb of storage will be $599! the same price than the iPad 2 with similar technical specifications. I said similar because the Xoom technically is better loaded. Like I have been saying if Honeycomb would have been a more mature OS, the fight against the iPad 2 could have end in a different way.

Consumer Reports presents the iPad 2

Consumers Reports posted at YouTube a video presentation where they show the iPad 2 and the competition. The well known institution warns consumers about other cheap tablets in the market saying that they do not compare with the iPad 2 and that they are cheaper but you end receiving what you paid for.

iPad 2 manufacturing cost

Today iPad Jailbreak posted the manufacturing cost of all version of the iPad 2. If this study is realistic then Jobs was bluffing when he was saying that the competency new how hard was to maintain the low price of the iPads. Well, for a company that is used to have profits of up to 200% to see a profit of 40% is hard. But 40% is profit and is not low.

Applications iPad 2

The iPad 2 has been in the market for virtually few hours and Apple is already rubbing under your nose adds for applications that will only work in the iPad 2 thanks to the dual core processor and a little bit better graphic chip on it.

So there is the need already to spend at least $500 t get the new iPad. Very Apple Style.

The real Steve Jobs

Recently a friend of mine that shares with me the same "admiration" for Steve Jobs sent me the link to this article published in one of the best known Webpage in the computer world.

Arrogant, selfish and inconsiderate are just few of the complements that Jobs received in this article. Unfortunately my English vocabulary to describe what I think about Jobs is not that rich as I would like.

Click in the link and see why I'm saying this.

Asus Eee Slate

The release of Asus Eee Slate seems like a suicide in a time where all is about Tablets with 10 hours of battery life. Thanks Asus for keep the platform alive. Next version try to reach at least 5 hours of battery and low the price up to the $600 range please.

Android keeps going up

Here is an interesting Chart.

RIM and Microsoft are losing terrain against Android and Apple is holding the territory thanks to the Army of fanboys but you can notice the tendency to go down too. To think that once we were looking into a chart like this, no long time ago, but it was the Microsoft line the one going up.

iPad 2: you will buy it no matter what we say

Definitely Conan O'Brian is absolutely right. No matter what we say the iPad 2 will be the next kid of the town. There are other tablets that are better but there is not a company with the punch needed to win the fight against Apple. That and the fact that Honeycomb still too immature for this fight.

But all this is not a reason for no telling Apple that we are not impressed at all with the iPad 2. And that's what is this Video about.

From upgrade to upgrade

iPad 2 is official

The iPad 2 is official. What is in this new version that we have not seen already in other Tablet? Nothing. The presentation was all about Jobs ridiculing Microsoft and the TabletPCs. A Jobs whose presence was showing the marks of a battle that in my opinion is making him pay too much. I'm not to far from the reality saying that the majority of the press in there was because of him and not because of an iPad that this time was not showing anything new. And iPad that was what the original iPad should have been.

Core vs Dual Core

Android Guys has posted a very interesting note comparing the use of a Core Solo processor against a Dual Core in Tablets. The advantages of using a Dual Core are there including a 40% of saving of energy. But one more time... Apparently we are not ready yet for this technology.
