TECHNOBYTE for 27 February 2015

Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S6, will be launched this Sunday, and it promises to represent a major break from the Galaxy S5. Following a year in which Samsung’s smartphone profits suffered and its mobile management endured a shake-up, the company said it was working to differentiate its smartphones from the hordes of other Android options in the interest of keeping profit margins in the double digits.

An industry first for a tablet, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro boasts a new way to watch videos and movies: a built-in projector. Turn any dark room into a home theatre while projecting up to a 50” image on any wall or screen. It also has great sound system built in and a battery life of 15 hours. The 13.3” QHD (2560 x 1440) display is impressive and delivers a beautiful picture quality.

The countdown has begun to Apple Inc.’s next big thing: the Watch. The company on Thursday sent out invitations to an event on March 9 in San Francisco, where it will unveil details for the release of the Apple Watch, a person with knowledge of the matter said. Optimism about Apple has been growing since Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook first took the wraps off the smartwatch, along with larger-screened iPhones, in September. The new phones helped fuel record profit in the last three months of 2014. Apple shares are trading near all-time highs, giving the company a market capitalization of about $758 billion. The event gives Cook the chance to show off the gadget’s capabilities and convince consumers they need one.
