Samsung to Build Indian Cell Phone Plant

Yonhap News Agency reported through a dispatch from India that Samsung Electronics has concluded a deal to build its mobile handset plant in either Noida or Mumbai, cities close to the capital city of New Delhi, weighing the tax incentives and logistics costs of the industrial complexes in the respective cities

Samsung Electronics is expected to push ahead with the construction of a mobile handset plant in India.

“It is true that we are considering such investment plans in India,’’ a Samsung Electronics spokesman said Wednesday.

He, however, neither denied nor confirmed a news report about its construction plan.

Yonhap News Agency reported through a dispatch from India that Samsung Electronics has concluded a deal to build its mobile handset plant in either Noida or Mumbai, cities close to the capital city of New Delhi, weighing the tax incentives and logistics costs of the industrial complexes in the respective cities.

It said Samsung is considering installing facilities by renting an existing factory rather than building a new one. If so, Samsung will be able to launch operations of its proposed plant as early as end of 2005.

Samsung is reportedly considering establishing an independent subsidiary exclusively for the mobile handset operation in India apart from the existing Indian digital media and digital appliance subsidiary. A Samsung Electronics official also said it is highly likely for the electronic giant to set up separate entity to oversee its mobile handset operations in India if it is to build the plant.

LG Electronics, which launched commercial operation of its Ranjangaon mobile handset plant located 50 kilometers southwest of Pune, India, in the first half, churns out 2 million phones a year. LG Electronics is the first global cellular phone maker to establish mobile phone plant in India.

ROKR 100 Tunes Limit Warning

Steve Jobs announced that the ROKR would play up to 100 tracks (including songs and podcasts), yet that figure doesn?t jibe with the size of a standard Flash memory chip. By Apple?s calculations, 100 songs takes up approximately 400MB of memory. Is someone producing a 400MB Flash chip now

A possibly annoying limitation to the recent Apple iTunes mobile phone, the ROKR from Motorola has been discovered.

It was reported over at playlistmag.com:

Steve Jobs announced that the ROKR would play up to 100 tracks (including songs and podcasts), yet that figure doesn’t jibe with the size of a standard Flash memory chip. By Apple’s calculations, 100 songs takes up approximately 400MB of memory. Is someone producing a 400MB Flash chip now?

Nope. The phone includes a removable 512MB Flash memory chip (found under the battery in the back of the phone). This chip will hold up to 100 tracks but the number of songs it holds isn’t dependant strictly on the size of the chip (though it obviously can’t contain more than 512MB of data). Rather, the 100 track limitation is part of a DRM scheme that prevents the phone from playing more than 100 tracks.

iTunes 5 keeps track of the number of tracks authorized for playback on the phone so even if your 100 tracks have used only 350MB of the card’s capacity, you can’t add more. Similarly, although you can swap in a new card that contains new tracks, those tracks won’t play until they’ve been approved for playback by iTunes.

Nokia 770 Gets FCC Approval

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has given Nokia permission to release in the US this company’s first Internet Tablet

The Nokia 770 will be an unusual product for this company, as it doesn’t have any cellular-wireless capabilities and, at its launch, won’t be able to be used as a phone.

 

01_770_internet_tablet_lowres.jpg

As its name suggests, this will be a device dedicated to Internet access. It will come with a web browser and email application, as well as software for listing to Internet radio, reading RSS feeds, viewing images, and playing audio and video.

However, it will not include a calendar.

It will have both WiFi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth 1.2, so it can access the Internet at a hotspot or through a mobile phone.

The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet will start shipping in the third quarter of this year in selected countries in the Americas and Europe. It is expected to cost about $350.

A copy of this device’s user manual is on the FCC’s web site.

A complete overview of it can be found on Nokia’s web site.

PalmOne rebrands as Palm

PalmOne has formally changed its name to Palm, unveiled a new logo and moved its headquarters, the company said on Thursday.
The new logo will start appearing on products this autumn, Palm said. The company has also begun trading on the Nasdaq under a new symbol: PALM. The gadget maker’s line of handhelds includes Zire, Tungsten, Treo and the recently launched LifeDrive.

See, Palm made good PDAs. Then people from Palm made Handspring.
Thenpalmlogo.gif Handspring bought Palm and sold the OS so you had PalmSource and PalmOne. Then PalmOne got confused and people stopped buying PDAs so they did poorly until their recent release of the LifeDrive. Now, however, we’re back to Palm again. Got it? It’s not that big a deal, but the now-rebranded Palm might be able to dig itself out of its slump by making some nice all-in-one devices, like the LifeDrive.

Officials in mobile-mad Finland, home to the world’s largest mobile phone maker, Nokia, said there had been outbreaks of the Cabir virus at Helsinki’s Olympic Stadium.
