Should the U.K. Government Form a Coalition to Buy ARM?

With SoftBank's Masayoshi Son trying to sell ARM, a columnist for the Observer newspaper has a suggestion for the U.K. government (and specifically Brexit Tories), calling the Cambridge-based company "a kind of public-interest commercial company: licensing state-of-the art instruction sets that can be implemented in silicon architecture by everyone. It was in nobody's pocket." Its business, as its chief founder, Tudor Brown, acknowledges, relied on it never betraying its neutrality... A future ...

Apple watchOS 7 preview

Of the big three Apple operating systems, watchOS arguably gets the least love. That goes double in a year that sees macOS getting its biggest overhaul in recent memory. On the whole, the Apple Watch’s software is often overlooked, as smartwatch users tend to focus attention on the addition of new hardware sensors and the like. Still, watchOS 7, out today in public beta, brings a number of key additions, as Apple looks to keep from getting too complacent in its spot high atop the list of smar...

WSJ: Qualcomm Asks US Government to Let it Sell Chips to Huawei

"The Wall Street Journal said it had obtained a Qualcomm presentation lobbying the U.S. government to remove restrictions and let it sell Snapdragon processors to Huawei," reports Engadget: The ban won't prevent Huawei from obtaining necessary parts and could just drive "billions of dollars" of U.S. sales to foreign chip makers like MediaTek and Samsung, Qualcomm reportedly said — lifting the chip ban would theoretically help American companies stay competitive. There could be a "rapid shift ...

'5G Just Got Weird'

SuperKendall (Slashdot reader #25,149) shared this review of the recent 5G standards codified by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in Release 16 (finalized on July 3). "5G just got weird," writes IEEE Spectrum: 4G and other earlier generations of cellular focused on just that: cellular. But when 3GPP members started gathering to hammer out what 5G could be, there was interest in developing a wireless system that could do more than connect phones... One of the flashiest things in Re...

More Chinese phone makers could lose US apps under Trump’s Clean Network

Over a third of the world’s smartphone sales come from Chinese vendors Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo. These manufacturers have thrived not only because they offer value-for-money handsets thanks to China’s supply chains, but they also enjoy a relatively open mobile ecosystem, in which consumers in most countries can freely access the likes of Google, Instagram and WhatsApp. That openness is under attack as the great U.S.-China tech divide inches closer to reality, which can cause harm on both sides.

No, Donald Trump can't 'ban' TikTok

TikTok's is facing choppy waters in the United States, as President Donald Trump and his administration amp up threats to ban the app in the US. Although the Trump administration has painted a ban on TikTok as a simple action, experts told Business Insider it's not so easy.

Google’s budget Pixel 4a addresses its premium predecessor’s biggest problem

The Pixel line has always felt like more of an underdog product than one should reasonably expect from a corporation as massive as Google. After years of partnerships and Nexus devices, when Google finally did enter the smartphone market in earnest, it found itself attempting to chip away at an already mature category — an even more difficult feat when most of that competition is already running your operating system. In an important sense, the Pixel line’s differentiator may actually be its...

Apple Smartphone Shipments Grow as Huawei Takes Top Spot in Q2 2020

Apple's iPhone shipments have grown in Q2 2020, as Huawei overtook Samsung as the world's largest smartphone vendor, according to new data shared by Canalys and IDC this week.

Google's $2.1 Billion Fitbit Deal Faces Full-Scale EU Antitrust Investigation

According to CNBC sources, Google's $2.1 billion bid for fitness tracker maker Fitbit will face a full-scale EU antitrust investigation next week. From the report: Alphabet unit Google this month offered not to use Fitbit's health data to help it target ads in an attempt to address EU antitrust concerns. The opening of a full-scale investigation suggests that this is not sufficient. The deal, announced last November, would see Google compete with market leader Apple and Samsung in the fitness-tr...

Huawei shipped more smartphones than any other company last quarter — making it the first to dethrone Apple and Samsung in 9 years (AAPL)

Chinese tech giant Huawei shipped more phones than any other company in Q2 2020, according to research firm Canalys. That makes it the first time in nine years that a company other than Samsung or Apple led the quarter, the report says. Huawei's dominance was largely fueled by its growth in China, which has seen better recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic than other markets like the US'.  But Canalys warns that Huawei's spot at the top might be short lived, as growth in China likely won't be en...

Huawei Overtakes Samsung as World's Biggest Smartphone Vendor

For the first time ever, Huawei has shipped more smartphones worldwide over a quarter than any other company, according to a new report from analyst firm Canalys.

Huawei overtook Samsung in global smartphone shipments for Q2

Things haven’t exactly been smooth sailing for Huawei in recent years. The company’s rapid trajectory has been disrupted by on-going battles with the U.S. government that have, among other things, blocked its access to Google apps and services. But a new report from Canalys paints a reasonably rosy picture as the hardware giant overtook Samsung to snag the top spot in global smartphone shipments for the second quarter of 2020.

Huawei and Bytedance are prime examples of a new regional approach to trade

Huawei and TikTok were two of the most successful examples of globalization. Huawei started as a small private firm in 1987 and has risen in just over 30 years to become a world champion in telecommunications. TikTok has succeeded over a much shorter time period. Having only launched in 2016, the video-sharing service is now the fourth most popular app in the world and has achieved 1.9 billion downloads worldwide. Both of these Chinese companies are now at the mercy of a widening geopolitical di...
