BAN: Nokia enforces UK Sales-Blockade of the HTC One mini [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:32 CET under 04 - Android News

If you are an avid follower, you know that I the HTC One mini is the Android smartphone from HTC's One-family, I like most. However, if you live in the UK, I have bad news for you. As Bloomberg just reported, a London judge said that HTC couldn't sell its One mini in the UK anymore - starting 6 December. The ruling is a result of Nokia which sued HTC for infringing patents owned by Nokia. However, since also blocking UK sales of the HTC One would cause "considerable" damage to HTC, Judge Richard Arnold delayed an injunction against the the One, so HTC could appeal; even if the phone contained microchips that also breached Nokia's patent. Prior the ruling, HTC argued the microchips found to infringe Nokia patents were "a very small component" and wouldn't justify a sales ban.

RUMOR: Microsoft Threshold to Unify Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8 and Xbox One
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:11 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Wonder where Microsoft's future is going to? No, not the future of the company by itself or who the next CEO will possibly be but the future of Windows? Always well informed Microsoft insider Mary Jo Foley got some information Microsoft denied to comment - for sure. Nevertheless, the info Foley received are somehow obvious and are about Microsoft's plans to "unify" the Windows (for desktop and tablet), Windows Phone and even the Xbox One code-base as much as possible. All this is said to run under the project name "Threshold". Threshold derives from the planet around which the first halo ring orbited in the original Halo game launched back in 2001.

DISTRIBUTION: Jolla sees a Sailfish OS Future on existing Android Devices
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:36 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

Following Jolla's "The Other Half" Sailfish OS-based smartphone launch last week, the Finnish smartphone startup has further plans for its Sailfish OS - to reach a critical mass. As Jolla CEO Tomi Pienimäki told Finnish Talouselämä Magazine, Jolla is going to let individual users install the Sailfish OS on Android devices that they already have. In an interview, Pienimäki said "That is the plan. We are on device business and OS business. It is fairly easy to install the OS on Android devices" and continued that "there is no such culture in these parts of the world [Finland], but there are people that are installing new operating systems on their devices. In China it is mainstream."

Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:57 CET under 04 - Android News

With millions of football (or how Americans call it: soccer) fans all around the world, there should be a market for such an app but it seems that, with only 50 - 100 Android downloads so far, FIFA itself failed to advertize it properly; because the football head organization has recently launched an Android and iOS app called "FIFA" which is said to be "the most comprehensive football app on the planet; unlocking the world of football". From the Bundesliga to the Barclays Premier League, MLS to La Liga, the "World Match Centre" provides unrivalled coverage of 197 leagues across the globe with hundreds of competitions, thousands of goals and over a million minutes of football every single week!
