In line with previous rumors, Xiaomi’s $65 smartphone has been spotted via a leaked photo. The smartphone’s design is quite similar to the Redmi 2. The phone was spotted by Mydrivers, and was put up on Chinese social network site Weibo.The image shows backpanel of the phone along with the LED flash and speaker grill. The traditional Mi logo is missing pointing out the fact that this phone might just be a prototype.
Xiaomi’s new budget offering will steer away from Qualcomm chipsets and will stick to a much pocket friendly Leadcore chipset. The $65 price tag translates to
approximately Rs 4,000 and if the device is indeed launched at this price it will definitely create waves in the entry-level Android segment.Rumors suggest that this Xiaomi smartphone will support 4G LTE and will come with a 720p display.
Xiaomi has just launched the Redmi 2 in India, the successor to the Redmi 1S, which will go on sale tomorrow. Priced at Rs 6,999, the smartphone sets new benchmarks for sub-Rs 10,000 smartphones. You can check out our Redmi 2 review here.
Only 20 percent in India have access to the Internet at least occasionally while a mere 14 percent own a smartphone, a new study conducted across 32 emerging and developing nations has found. The study by The Pew Research Center also found that 65 percent of Internet users in India said they use social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter while 55 percent have used the Internet to look for or apply for a job.
Across the 32 nations surveyed, a median of 44 percent use the Internet at least occasionally, either through smartphones or other devices. Access rates vary considerably across the emerging and developing nations surveyed. Toward the bottom in terms of access rates are some of the world’s most heavily populated nations in South and Southeast Asia.
These include Indonesia, where only 24 percent of the population has access to the Internet, India (20 percent), Bangladesh (11 percent) and Pakistan (8 percent). Combined, these countries account for approximately a quarter of the world’s population. The study found that Internet usage is more common among young people, the well-educated and those who have the ability to read or speak English.
Overall, a median of 64 percent said the Internet is a good influence on education, with at least half also seeing it as a good influence on personal relationships (53 percent) and the economy (52 percent). People are more mixed on the Internet’s effect on politics, with similar proportions saying that the influence is good (36 percent) as say it is bad (30 percent).
The people in emerging and developing nations are more convinced that the internet is having a negative effect on morality. A median of 42 percent said it is a bad influence on morality, while only 29 percent see the internet as a good influence. Socializing is the most preferred type of digital activity for internet users in emerging and developing nations. Many also use cyberspace for getting information about politics, health care and government services. Less common are commercial and career activities, such as searching or applying for a job, making or receiving payments, buying products and taking online classes. The Pew Research Center survey was conducted among 36,619 people in 32 emerging and developing countries from March 17 to June 5, 2014.
