Android drives mobile gaming successes

If you threw out the term “mobile gaming” 10 years ago, well, it wasn't really something you’d throw out there. That’s because advanced mobile devices flooding the consumer market today, a fairly recent emergence in the past two decades, are now driving the overall video gaming industry and enabling successes specifically within the mobile arena. Android devices like tablets, phablets, smartphones as well as virtual reality headsets are in the driver’s seat of the gaming game and power the ultra-engaging visual adventure.

There are approximately a billion Android devices being used in the world, and the impressive widespread adoption of the modern technology has pushed mobile game publishers to expand their demographic to not only entertain the traditional teenage-gamer nerd but almost every type of human being, moms and doctors alike. The types of games range from social-oriented ones such as Words with Friends, which calls for players to interact with others over a social platform, to serious games like educational applications that can activate, exercise and strengthen cognitive abilities, and not to be forgotten, many classic action-packed video games normally housed on the old-school console are now being brought to a mobile setting. All of these complex applications call for extremely advanced technology built inside device hardware. Mobile devices with Snapdragon processors equip compact Android machines to power the most superior experience possible that includes extra crisp visuals, sharp sound effects and smooth functionality required for the intricate, interactive activity.

How Android drives mobile gaming successes

One android-based gaming gadget generating significant tech buzz is the Gear VR (Innovator Edition), a virtual reality headset developed by Oculus. The headset attaches to the Samsung GALAXY Note 4 and users can then plunge into a virtual world like no other. Forward-thinking innovation within mobile gaming is being pushed because of the capabilities Android technology presents.

At Google’s I/O fest this year, the star of the show seemed to be Android and was heavily suggested as the future of innovation. Executives pitched that the mobile operating software is the fueling force behind forthcoming connected devices. Because of the operating system’s strong presence and partnerships with technological pioneers, Samsung amongst others, potential for increasing growth in gaming applications will thrive.

Game publishers will continue to create games for a growing mobile audience. In particular, the healthcare industry is starting to integrate gaming to benefit those who provide medical attention and those who seek it. Practitioners within the field can utilize mobile applications to develop their skills in various medical procedures and also expand their knowledge in medicine. Patients equally are beginning to benefit from their use of mobile devices and the games available. For instance, apps that help players strengthen day-to-day brain functions are proving to be an effective measure to prevent against certain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

The widespread accessibility to Android-run systems has resulted in a complete overhaul of the mobile app market space. Individual developers and smaller organizations now have the same resources giant game publishers once solely held to produce successful entertainment that reaches the masses. Games like Draw Something, a mobile game that transitioned the pen-and-paper way of Pictionary to the mobile screen, reached overnight, viral popularity and was produced by a smaller developer OMGPop.

So long as there is Android to execute mobile gaming, the mobile game industry will remain on the same path to achieving even more success. By 2017, the global gaming industry is projected to generate $102.9 billion in revenues largely in part due to its mobile component. And because of the powerful mobile device Android technology backing it up, the fiscal predication is likely to hold true.

UAE has no Samsung Galaxy S6s for sale due to very high demand

Samsung Electronics may just have its rival Apple Inc.'s favourite problems on its hands. The demand for its devices 'far exceeds' supply despite the company taking every measure, including gauging pre-order commitments, to ensure that it can steadily supply units to the market in line with the demand. Retailers in UAE, like the rest of the world are selling out of Samsung’s latest Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets, raising questions over whether phone companies are dialling up the hype. Eros Group, the phones’ sole UAE distributor, says it has sold all of its allocation of 22,000 units. The phone launched globally last Friday and was treated to a midnight launch in the UAE. Initially Eros received 16,000 S6 models and 6,000 of the higher-specification Edge.

“Our first allotment of 22,000 units has been completely sold out and we are waiting for the second lot,” said Deepak Babani, the chief executive of Eros. “The second allotment is expected to arrive in the next couple of days.” And despite the steeper price-tag, it’s the S6 Edge that is more in demand among the well-heeled Dubai consumers. “Inquiries for the S6 Edge were more than the S6, with 65 per cent for the Edge and 35 per cent for the S6 model,” he said.

Still, the South Korean company seems to have underestimated the demand for its spearhead smartphones – the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge – and the Dubai-based sole distributor of Samsung devices says that it is doing its best to cater to customer interest.

While demand for the new Samsung smartphones in the UAE has been robust, there are still pockets of supply in Samsung-branded outlets. “We have sufficient stocks of the Samsung Galaxy S6 to hopefully take us through this weekend and slightly less than that for the S6 edge,” said Ashish Panjabi, the chief operating officer of Jacky’s Retail. Electronic retailers said that while the Edge was in high demand, the relatively small amount of supply meant that it was likely to be sold out.

The Galaxy S6 is available in four models. The Galaxy S6 (32GB) for Dh2,599, and the Galaxy S6 (64GB) for Dh2,899. The Galaxy S6 Duos (32GB) for Dh2,699, and the Galaxy S6 Duos (64GB) for Dh2,999. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is available in three models. The S6 Edge (32GB) for Dh3,099 while the S6 Edge (64GB) for Dh3,399 and the S6 Edge (128GB) for Dh3,799.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are being seen by analysts as Samsung’s comeback devices. The company lost the leadership slot among smartphones manufacturers to rival Apple Inc. in the fourth quarter of 2014, after being on top for 12 quarters since Q4 2011. Apple, the iPhone maker, overtook Samsung to sell the most smartphones in the fourth quarter of last year, selling nearly 75 million devices compared to Samsung’s 73 million.

Analysts cite the runaway success of Apple’s largest-to-date iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the lacklustre response to Galaxy S5, as reasons behind Samsung falling behind in the largely two-horse race.

Eros Digital Home claims to be the first retail chain to open pre-bookings for the phones across its 33 stores in the UAE. Eros is the sole distributor of Samsung, Hitachi, TCL and Linksys, and one of the leading players in consumer electronics, telecom, and allied multi-products in the Middle East.

At last Apple cuts iPhone prices in Russia

Over the past year the Russian currency falls far behind US dollar, 100% behind in most cases. So all the mobile devices including iPhone has taken the heat. All companies forced to increase their price in order to balance their importing price in Russia. As a result companies like Apple has had a couple of turbulent months on the Russian market. Now, it seems, the storm is finally settling and the local Apple store has introduced a significant price cut to both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, bringing the price tags a lot closer to the international average. And although some mark-up is still detectable, an iPhone 6 will now set you back RUB48,990 for the basic 16GB model and RUB55,990 and RUB62,990 rubles for the 64GB and 128GB, respectively. This represents a significant RUB5,000 decrease, but is still not quite the RUB39,990 the phone was originally going for.

Naturally, the bigger Plus model also has a new price. The 16GB one can be picked up for RUB55,990, which is an even bigger price cut of about RUB8,000. The 64GB one goes for RUB62,990 and the 128GB model will set you back RUB69,999s. Things are definitely looking up for Apple on the Russian market, at least for now, that is. The price reduction seems to have extended to the App Store as well. Basic $0.99 apps now go for RUB59, which is better that the previous RUB62, but again, far from the original RUB33.

The Asus ZenWatch is not the most advanced or glamorous smartwatch, and it's certainly no true Apple Watch rival. The ViVoWatch seems to have a black and white display to save on power with a green LED strip below. The watch has a stainless steel body and an IP67 certification for dust and water resistance.

As you can tell, it’s not exactly running Android Wear, which explains how it manages to last for 10 days on a single charge. There are not much details available at this point and more will be revealed tomorrow at the Milan Design Week.
