Demystify how Snapdragon processors stack up against the competition (Re: 高通自誇效能 聯發科回嗆)

我拜託台灣有夠了不起的媒體不要移花接木亂報新聞好不好…? 首先,毫無疑問地裝配有 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 的手機是 Sony Xperia Arc S(確認自機身正面下方的三顆突起按鍵所形成的飾條,及其各別圖示) 而對比機(影片中的 competition phone)則是 Intel’s Medfield-based 的 Orange San Diego(注意正面下方的觸控按鍵圖示和機身側邊的銀白亮條)。 兩支手機的身份都為大家揭曉了,其各別的硬體能力與系統配置,都有公開資訊可以查,這個影片中的評比到底有多少參考價值大家自己可以評斷。 所以我想請教工商時報偉大的記者,這個 Qualcomm 發表的影片,跟聯發科有什麼關聯?還展示在新興市場的實力以反擊高通的嗆聲勒…。不要自編自導得太誇張了,真夠自嗨的。 有在關注的「巷子內」朋友應該早就該從 Qualcomm 的 facebook 上看到這個影片了,還有那兩句嗆聲: We know mobile. Watch how Snapdragon processors stack up against mobile newbies. … Continue reading

iPhone 真是功德無量,讓 EDGE 在歐洲有了第二春?

喧騰一時,iPhone 的首批歐洲合作對象終於在 9 月下旬陸續揭曉,一如媒體先前所報導,英國 O2 及德國 T-Mobile 分別拿到當地的 iPhone 獨家銷售權,初始發售日都落在 11 月 9 日;一度也敲定拿到 iPhone 銷售權的法國 Orange,目前則傳出因無法與蘋果就營收分配比例達成協議,雙方合作恐怕生變。

Europe to fight mobile roaming fees

給了歐洲的 Operator 們兩年的時間,歐盟對於高額的國際漫遊費用終於失去耐心。歐盟 Information, Society and Media 委員 Viviane Reding(右圖者)是這個議題的主持人,她早在 2004 年就已經提醒 Operator 們要注意高出各自利益原則的國際漫遊費率,直到最近她向英國媒體 BBC 公開表示她已經給了這些 Operator 兩年的時間去改善,但情況仍舊,現在歐盟要主動出擊。這個行動的提案將透過 European Regulators Group (ERG) 來具體實現。但原本三月份就要召開的協調會,臨時於幾個星期前由 GSM Association 提出要延後到四月初才舉辦,媒體指出似乎是 GSMA 無法取得這些 Operator 們的共識來與歐盟談判因而決定將會議延後。屆時如果照原定提案內容成功達成協議的話,歐盟區域國家之間的漫遊電話費降幅將可高達 60%,這對歐盟境內所有的電話使用者來說都是一項大福利!有關於這項對抗電信業者,協調降低國際漫遊費用的活動之相關資訊,可以參考 Europe’s Information Society 的 ACTIVITIES:: International roaming tariffs 網頁。
