Domestic electronics company iBall has topped the Indian tablet market in the fourth quarter (October-December) of 2014, dislodging South Korean giant Samsung, an International Data Corporation (IDC) report said Monday.
iBall had the maximum market share with 15.6 percent followed by Samsung (12.9 percent), Datawind (9.6 percent), Lenovo (9.4 percent), and HP (8.7 percent) while others had 43.8 percent. ”iBall rapidly climbed its way to the number one spot in this quarter. From a 4.5 percent share in Q4 2013, the brand has more than tripled its share in Q4 2014. Its growth is backed by low cost products targeted at consumers looking to own entry level form factors. The brand is actively engaged in expanding its retail presence as well as geographical reach,” IDC said in a statement here.
IDC is the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services and events for the information technology, telecommunications, and consumer technology markets. Overall, the Indian tablet market reported shipments of 0.96 million units in Q4, a quarter-on-quarter growth of 3.6 percent. ”The market saw a correction post the introduction of BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) regulation in July 2013. Unbranded tablets were wiped off from the market, thereby contracting the bubble of growth witnessed in the first half of 2013 and resulting in year-on-year decline in growth,” said Tanvi Mann, market analyst at Client Devices IDC India.
The report also said 7-inch tablets placed in less than $150 price band populate the market and would continue to do so in the foreseeable future. ”While Android still has majority of the pie, we do see vendors exploring the 8-9 inch windows form factor.” ”Consumers are driving the wave of adoption of low cost tablets as a preferred mobility solution. We are also witnessing a higher inclination of consumers towards online buying platforms and vendors are keeping up with the trend,” said Kiran Kumar, research manager at Client Devices IDC India. ”The consumer space will continue to be led by the local brands and we may see re-entry of some of the older players in the top five vendor list. On a yearly basis, we expect 2015 to post a single digit growth over 2014,” it added.
In a bid to boost fixed line phone connections in the country, telecom regulator Trai today removed charges that a landline service provider has to pay to the other service providers for transmitting its customers’ phone calls – a move that is likely to lead to lower tariffs.
Now, calls made from landline-to-landline or landline-to- mobiles will not include the interconnection charge, which was 20 paise. Trai has also reduced network interconnection usage charges (IUC) on calls made from mobile phones by about 30 percent to 14 paise per call from 20 paise earlier. ”To promote investment in, and adoption of, wireline networks, so that they may become an effective vehicle for the delivery of high-speed Internet in the country, the Authority has decided to prescribe FTC (fixed termination) as well as MTC (mobile termination charge) for wireline to wireless calls as zero,” Trai said in the new IUC rule issued today. Telecom subscribers can’t communicate with each other or connect with other networks unless necessary interconnection arrangements are in place.
A telecom company is required to pay interconnection charges when its subscriber make call to subscriber of other network. The charge gets added up in final price that a subscriber has to pay. ”The Authority is of the opinion that in case the MTC is set to zero for wireline to wireless calls, wireline access providers would be able to provide innovative tariff packages (e.g. flat rental plans with unlimited or a significantly large number of outgoing calls),” Trai said. Similarly, in case the FTC for calls originating from wireless networks and terminating on wireline networks is set to zero, this “would propel wireless access providers to offer cheaper tariffs for wireless-to-wireline calls,” Telecom Regulatory Authority of India said.
Landline connections in the country have been declining since the time mobile incoming calls were made free. While mobile subscriber base at the end of 2014 reached all time high at 94.39 crore, landline connections are only 2.7 crore. State-run telecom companies BSNL dominates landline phone connections with 62.71 percent market share followed by MTNL 13.04 percent, Bharti Airtel 12.55 percent, Tata Teleservices 5.98 percent and Reliance Communications 4.39 percent. Videocon’s Quadrant, Vodafone and Sistema Shyam account for 1.2 percent market share. Landline connections of private players are mainly meant for providing broadband connections. In mobile segment, Bharti Airtel leads market with 23.01 percent market share followed by Vodafone 18.93 percent, Idea Cellular 15.95 percent, RCom 11.26 percent, BSNL 8.62 percent, Aircel 8.33 percent, Tata Teleservices 7.01 and Uninor 4.62 percent.
Sistema Shyam, Videocon Telecom and MTNL account for about 2 percent mobile service market share
Malicious software can track your smartphone simply by measuring the way it uses power even without access to location data, scientists warn.
The technique is based on the idea that a smartphone’s power usage depends largely on the distance from the nearest base station. As a user moves, this distance changes, increasing or decreasing the power needed to communicate with a base station. The power usage profile is strongly correlated with the movement of the phone, or in other words, with the route taken by its owner, according to MIT Technology Review. Given several different potential routes, the power usage profile should show which route the user has taken. ”Our approach enables known route identification, real-time tracking, and identification of a new route by only analysing the phone’s power consumption,” said Yan Michalevsky at Stanford University in California and colleagues.
For the idea to work, the user must be moving as power usage profile is no use in identifying the location of a stationary phone. To find out how well this technique works in practice, the team created an Android app called PowerSpy that measures power usage. They then tested it on a number of devices. In total, they took 43 different power usage profiles on four different routes each about 14 kilometres long. Researchers could determine which route had been taken with an accuracy of 93 per cent just by analysing the power usage profiles.
“We showed that applications that read the phone’s ampere meter can gain information about the location of a mobile device without accessing the GPS or any other coarse location indicators,” they said.
