Part of the description:

  • With today's announcement of the BlackBerry 10 platform and the high-end Z10 smartphone, BlackBerry (formerly RIM) showed that it doesn't have the slightest intention to play the silly specs game. The BlackBerry Z100 will neither have an octa-core processor, nor will it feature a 5" screen. Instead, the new flagship will keep things nice and compact, while still being powerful enough in order to deliver a perfectly smooth user experience. We approve.

Apple may have quietly invested more than $2 billion in display maker Sharp, the struggling Japanese company that is a component rival to Samsung. While Apple also receives display supplies for its products from Samsung, the iPhone maker and the Korean company have been in an increasingly uneasy relationship because of their rivalry in the smartphone market.

 

Apple's annual capital expenditures for the full fiscal year were $2.3 billion higher than anticipated, which has led Asymco analyst Horace Dediu to believe that the company gave the same amount to Sharp. In an analysis made on Wednesday, Dediu said Apple spent one-third more than it expected in capital expenditures in the 2012 fiscal year. While it had forecast in October of 2011 that it would spend about $8 billion, the final number came in at $10.3 billion. Nearly all of the over-spending related to "product tooling, manufacturing process equipment, and infrastructure," Dediu noted.

 

"My guess is that these attempts to shore up Sharp are directed by Apple to ensure both continuity of supply and a balanced supplier base (offsetting Samsung, another supplier)," Dediu wrote. "If Sharp were to enter some form of bankruptcy, the key plant[s] used in producing screens for Apple might be ‘up for grabs' by creditors and they might be taken off-line, jeopardizing Apple's production capacity, irrespective of contractual obligations."

 

According to the analyst, the deal may have included pre-orders for new components for Apple products. Apple also reportedly sources displays from LG Display .

 

Financially struggling Sharp was set to receive a $1 billion investment from Apple manufacturer Foxconn earlier this year in order to build a new LCD plant and boost production for Apple products. However, the deal fell through. Sharp executives admitted at the end of last month that the company may not recover from its $5.6 billion loss.

 


According to Digitimes, Samsung plans to launch 7-inch,  8-inch and 10.1-inch tablets as well as a series of ultrabooks in 2013 following its success gained with sales of smartphones.

 

The 7-inch and 10.1-inch tablets are both set to appear in retail channels in the first half of 2013 to avoid directly competing against any Apple devices that are estimated to come out in the second half of the year.  In addition to the 7-inch model with a US$149-199 price range, Samsung is also considering an 8-inch device with a price range between US$249-299 to fill the gap between its 7-inch tablet and entry-level iPad mini, which is priced at around US$329.

 

Samsung is estimated to have shipped 15 million tablets in 2012 and is aiming to ship 40 million units in 2013.

Huawei is trying hard to get pass with the image that it only producing cheap and low-cost phones, which involving competing with established brands such as Samsung. Huawei Ascend D2 and Ascend Mate occupy the high-end phone market, the Ascend G520 is aimed at the more affordable scale, while still offering some of high end features.

 

The Ascend G520 also comes with an unspecified version of Android (but at least 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich), a 4.5-inch IPS touchscreen of unknown resolution, a 5 MP rear camera, and 512 MB of RAM. That's a bit disappointing, sure. Then again - you are getting a quad-core phone for little over 200 dollars unlocked.

 

The G520 pictured above comes with China Mobile's logo on it, as you can see. And it's unclear at this point whether this device will ever make it to any other country.
