Apple iPhone Discarded: Once Again!

In a latest research done by IDC’s Mobile Phone Tracker - Apple, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson all lost market share in Q1 2008 year-over-year. Apple’s global handset shipments fell sharply, from 2.3 million units in Q4 2007 to 1.7 million in Q1 2008. Apple’s global market share declined for the first time, from 0.7% in Q4 2007 to 0.6% in Q1 2008.

Apple has been hit hard by stock-outs in North America and lackluster demand for its overpriced iPhone in Western Europe, according to Strategy Analytics.

Now Apple must be hoping to see some favorable developments with the launch of 3G enabled iPhone later in the June.

Another Mobile TV in the US: Courtesy LG Vu

Yet another mobile TV that claims it’s different – the LG Vu mobile phone earned all the attention at CTIA 2008. Somewhat delayed arrival – though, it is good that such releases are finally getting substantial attention. But, it was an utterly disappointed session in 2007 because Nokia’s most of the forecasts badly disappointed people. It was predicated that mobile TV would come with every new Nokia handset – And, it did not happen. Even though some mobile TV phones were released, but they also ended up creating confusion – with their restrictive programs, sky-high cost and tiny screen. And, users felt bad because it was harder to find a difference between 3G features and mobile TV.

Let’s see what this new mobile TV offers:
1.Touchscreen (stolen from iPhone.. again) and candybar designing
2.Endowed with easily navigable EPG (Electronic Programme Guide)
3.In standard features, you get – web browser, an MP3 player.

Let’s see how it works, but with its cramped keyboard and limited mobile TV service in US…chances are really bleak!
