SOLD: Lenovo to acquire Motorola Mobility from Google
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:47 CET under 04 - Android News

As announced yesterday evening by Google CEO Larry Page himself, Google and Lenovo signed an agreement to sell Motorola for US$ 2.91 billion. As this is an important move for Android users everywhere, Page explained in Google' own blog that Google acquired Motorola back in 2012 to help "supercharge the Android ecosystem by creating a stronger patent portfolio for Google and great smartphones for users". According to Page, Motorola has done a tremendous job reinventing the company over the past 19 months by focusing on building a smaller number of great (and great value) smartphones that consumers love. Both the Moto G and the Moto X are said to "doing really well" and Page is very excited about the smartphone lineup for 2014.

OVERRAN: Beats Music puts Registration of new Accounts on-hold
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:58 CET under 01 - General News

Following this week's launch of its streaming service, Beats Music sent out and E-Mail update last night where it explained that they "have been blown away by the love that made them the #1 Music App in the iTunes Store". However, due to the extremely high volume of interest in the Beats Music service, some users are experiencing issues; something I've also read about on Twitter. While Beats Music said that most people are unaffected, its priority is to give everyone a great experience and the company seems to have expected such an issue and has therefore been prepared. Because of the weak experience some users faced, Beats Music is now going to hold off on letting more people in while the company is working on a resolution.

FEEDBACK: Omate explains the Shipping-Delays of its Omate TrueSmart 2.0 Android Smartwach
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:01 CET under 04 - Android News

Like me, I know a couple European readers pledged the Omate TrueSmart 2.0 smartwatch after I wrote about it first time back in August and after the recent Omate announcement of further shipping delays, I received some feedback from some readers which - well let's say it this way - indicated "a frustration". Many of you have pledged for the 2100 MHz UMTS "Omate TrueSmart DEVELOPERS Edition" which was said to deliver "in October (last year) - before anyone else". However, Omate said in its latest update that it discovered some quality issues with this version (after they've upgraded each backer to the 1GB RAM / 8 GB flash memory version) which causes - also thanks to Chinese New Year - even further shipping delays.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:13 CET under 01 - General News

Following Deutsche Telekom's and Evernote's earlier cooperation in Germany, where German T-Mobile customers received free 12 months Evernote Premium features, the to companies just announced that they are expanding their partnership to cover the 12 markets in the Deutsche Telekom's footprint in continental Europe. I don't have to explain you Evernote at all but Evernote allows to take notes, clip webpages, snap articles, create to-do lists and record audio using mobile phones. The service, which is globally available anyway, is now also available in all 12 Deutsche Telekom markets where customers, who activate from now until October 2, can redeem six months of Evernote Premium by downloading via online app stores or by purchasing a new Android device that already has the application preloaded.

APPROVAL: GCF approves Huawei W5101 - Next Windows Phone in Ahead?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:52 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

The Global Certification Forum (GCF) just approved the Huawei W5101 and as the name indicates, it might be Huawei's next Windows Phone, the Chinese manufacturer might unveil during next month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. While nothing is confirmed, so far all Huawei Windows Phones started with a "W", and for sure the GCF is also pretty mum with further information. Nevertheless, we now know - thanks to the approval - that the W5101 is a quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE device which also supports dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz and - surprisingly enough - triband LTE at 800/1800/2600 MHz which indicates that the W5101 is made for Europe.
