This Week in Mobile
IOS, Microsoft, Gecko! "Top up” your weekly knowledge of the mobile industry so you can keep up on all that's going on!
Here at Fueled, a mobile development company based in New York and London, we are obsessed with everything that happens in mobile, be it rumors of iPhone hardware, subtle Android updates or new apps we love.
Every Friday, we’d like to help you “top up” your weekly knowledge of the mobile industry so you can keep your finger on the pulse. Here’s what went on this week in mobile.
The new iPhone 5C and 5s went on sale today. Have you gotten one or ordered your new iPhone yet? Have you at least downloaded iOS 7 ? Get on it! This week continued with iOS 7 reviews and discussion.
Hopefully, you'll get the phone you want- Apple even asked its suppliers this week to produce more gold iPhone 5Ss due to the high demand.
A Quest for Relevancy
Shortly after introducing the new Blackberry Z30 phone, the Wall Street Journal reported the company is expected to to lay off 40% of its work force by the end of the year.
On the bright side, this weekend, BBM will be available for Android and iPhone, Saturday and Sunday respectively.
As for the 5-inch Blackberry Z30 itself, all you really need to know is that it's a larger version of the Blackberry z10 and apparently, it's a snore. For more information, you can check out this overview here.
For those of you feeling over saturated with Android and iPhone news and have the urge to get away from it all, Microsoft is offering more trade in options. Trade in your iPhone, iPad, Andriod advice (even your Blackberry!) for a new Microsoft tablet, PC, or Phone with your $350 in credit. #desperate
How big is too big? Apparently, the Galaxy Mega is pushing the limits. With a 6.3 inch screen, it is the largest Android yet. This week saw a lot of Samsung Galaxy Mega reviews. The phablet became available online on Tuesday and will be in stores today.
This week, we also heard about Gecko, a really interesting project launched on Indiegogo. It has the potential to make your "smart phone smarter." Check it out, here.
