Playstation portable with mobilephone

if Nokia has game aplication in their phone called N-gage, why not SONY ?

as long as the company has its hands in both manufacturing handsets and game consoles [Playstation Portable}. As a top brand manufacture for both product the idea is not overwhelming or far fetched object.

Sony Ericsson president Hideki Komiyama discusses his struggle to reposition the company as one of the world's top three phone makers. Among bright ideas and desperate measures mulled over, the man in charge lets slip that the plan is not far-fetched to consider. Even a PlayStation-branded phone? "Could happen," he is quoted as saying. Making handheld game mix with mobile phones maybe the breakthrough Sony has been waiting for to grab bigger slice of the market.

Sony Ericsson needs to raise 100 million euros to stay afloat

Things haven't looked great for Sony Ericsson -- which reported its sales were down 50% during the first quarter -- for quite a piece of time now.
Well, now Sony's CFO has admitted that falling demand combined with a "gap" in its product portfolio has created problems for the company. He also acknowledged that the company needs to raise about 100 million euros by the end of this fiscal year (March of 2010) to keep on trucking.

Sony Ericsson is reportedly considering numberless cash-raising options, but no plans are yet set in stone.
The mobile phone market is getting tougher for the highend smartphone, but there is lots of room for the low end market section. And Sony Ericsson will give more performance for the same amount of money compare with other mobile product in the same price range.

Pasar tidak begitu bagus bagi Sony Ericsson - yang melaporkan penjualan yang telah turun 50% selama kuartal pertama - sepanjang tahun ini.
Nah, sekarang dari CFO Sony telah mengakui bahwa permintaan telah jatuh, dikombinasikan dengan "celah" dalam portfolio produk telah menciptakan masalah bagi perusahaan. Dia juga mengakui bahwa perusahaan perlu meningkatkan sekitar 100 juta euro pada akhir tahun fiskal ini (Maret 2010) untuk tetap muncul di pasar dunia.

Sony Ericsson dilaporkan mempertimbangkan beberapa pilihan, tanpa meningkatkan pengeluaran uang cash, namun belum ada rencana yang ditetapkan.
Pasar Ponsel semakin ketat untuk highend smartphone, tetapi masih ada banyak tempat untuk pasar bagian akhir rendah. Dan Sony Ericsson akan memberikan kinerja yang sama untuk sejumlah uang dibandingkan dengan produk ponsel lainnya dalam kisaran harga yang sama.

*Better performance and feedback when clicking links.

Nokia halt investment

HELSINKI (Reuters) - Nokia, the world's biggest cell phone maker, said on Tuesday it would halt investment in its first major Internet service push, a media sharing site, as part of a revamp of its services strategy.

"Ovi Share ... is planned to be maintained in its current state," a spokesman for the company said, adding Nokia would keep the service up and running.

Nokia built the service -- seen as one of the cornerstones of its services strategy -- on the acquisition of U.S. firm Twango in 2007, and opened it to the public at the Mobile World Congress trade show in February 2008.

"It seems like an admission of failure -- which is healthy at this point," said GC Research analyst Tero Kuittinen.

Nokia has not unveiled usage numbers, but analysts say these have remained low due to draw of already established sharing sites such as Facebook or Yahoo Inc's Flickr.

"They definitely need to collaborate with Facebook instead of trying to replace it. Same thing with Twitter and Flickr," Kuittinen said.

To cope with slowing phone demand Nokia is building a new business from Internet services -- such as games or maps -- but said on April 28 it would scale back separate investment plans due to the slowdown, and focus on merging the delivery of services.

Nokia, which reported its first-ever quarterly pretax loss for January-March, due to sinking phone demand, is in the middle of a big cost-cutting program, having shed 3,500 jobs so far.

Shares in Nokia closed 2.8 percent lower at 10.28 euros in Helsinki, compared with 0.9 percent weaker DJ Stoxx European technology index.

goooogle new approach to search engine

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Google Inc unveiled a slew of new and future features on Tuesday, including one that will allow people to better coordinate Internet searches on their cell phones and computers and another that will produce sophisticated automated research reports.

At a briefing at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, executives demonstrated tools to knit its search product on personal computers more closely with cell phones, as well as products to automatically troll the Internet for research topics and generate detailed spreadsheets.

Google also showed off a new feature, available immediately, that lets users view only the most timely search results, narrowing the results for a topic to the past 24 hours or the past week.

Google said it will search blogs and news sites, as well as the general information available online, to provide a fresher picture of certain subjects.

This feature comes amid the rising popularity of so-called real time search products, like the search feature on microblogging site Twitter, which allow users to search up-to-the-minute developments about certain topics online.

Google said users will be able to display results by type of information, such as videos.

A new feature under development will allow a search performed on a desktop PC to automatically show up when the same user logs on to Google from a Web-enabled cell phone.

A tool called Google Squared, available next month, will automatically troll for information on the Internet to create spreadsheets about the topics a person searches.

In the demonstration, a search for small dogs generated a table that listed different breeds of dogs, with key information such as weight and height.

Google executives said they did not expect the product to increase friction with online content publishers who are concerned Google is profiting from their work.

In response to a question about this, Google Vice President of Search Products and User Experience Marissa Mayer said Google Squared is very strong in citing where the content in the tables it creates comes from, ultimately driving traffic back to the content creator site.

"The tools we're launching today offer whole new ways of searching that haven't previously been available," said Mayer.

Nokia E75

The new Nokia E75 has just officially emerged and marks a new breed of Eseries device. Just as the E71 broke new ground, the Nokia E75 is set to follow suit, cementing its unique place on the email and messaging scene as an ultra compact communicator.
Nokia E75 doesn’t follow any conventional paths. Add the fact that it’s the first Eseries device to support N-Gage gaming and you get a flavour of how progressive and exciting this pocket communicator truly is - it barely stretches that tape measure to 111.8mm x 50mm x 14.4mm, with a QVGA screen that measures in at 2.4-inches.

Squeezed into this compact shell are all the hallmarks of a leading Eseries device. The Nokia E75 comes loaded with the new Nokia Messaging service for slick email HTML email support. Plus it’s packing a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, high speed HSDPA access, integrated A-GPS with Nokia Maps, and a music player with a 3.5mm standard audio jack.

Kai Oistamo, executive vice president at Nokia, had to say about the Nokia E75 and its inspiration:

“With the Nokia E75 we took a lot of inspiration from the Nokia 9300, which was our first mini communicator. Owners of the Nokia 9300 loved the messaging functionality a full keyboard provided, but also used the traditional phone keypad a great deal. With the Nokia E75 we kept these essential ingredients, significantly upgraded all of the features and made it as compact as possible.”
