The strong competitors in the tech market: Android and Apple

Nobody could have predicted the Android’s huge success this year. But thanks to Google for making it a freeware and allowing its apps to be sold without any cost that Android has become so popular. However, this doesn’t mean Apple has been dislodged from its formidable position as it is still regarded as one of the most reliable and successful platform for mobile devices.

According to the numbers, Android apps have overtaken Apple’s as it accounts for 44 percent of the applications, compared to 31 percent share from Apple. The numbers have risen sharply for Android as more people are moving from other platforms to Android, thanks to the increasing number of Android-based gadgets in the market. However, if we talk in terms of quality of apps then Apple scores over Android as it closely monitors the quality of apps, while Android is an open market. Anyone can upload his/her Android application on the Android app store and there is a plethora of low-quality apps there. This means you might have to spend more time in finding the best Android app for your device while trying your hands on different applications that serve the same purpose. Apple might have lagged behind in terms of numbers, but has some of the major app development companies selling on its app store. It remains to be a more serious market for the commercial apps.

      How to Cancel Facebook SMS Subscription

      STC Facebook SMS

      Facebook has a great notification system that send you Email and SMS notifications when your friends post any updates on the Facebook. However sometime these notification might annoy you because they could be up to 50/day when you have a bunch of friends on Facebook. It is easy to stop these notifications whether they are Email notifications or SMS notifications from your Facebook account setting. It is explained well here.

      However when it comes to SMS notifications charged by Mobile Network Providers its not that simple. I have experienced it. I subscribed to Facebook SMS notifications on my STC prepaid Sim and after I find a lot of SMS in my mobile I turned it off from Facebook Account setting.

      Then I got satisfied that now I will not be disturbed by these boring messages. But it was surprising for me when STC deducted 3 Saudi Riyal from my mobile balance next week.
      You are still registered to STC Facebook sms service.

      Everyone Claims First One to Launch 4G in Saudi Arabia

      It seems quite funny when we look on to the websites of all 3 Mobile Network operators in Saudi Arabia (STC, Mobily and Zain) where they highlighted, "They are the First one to launch 4G (4th Generation) Network in Saudi Arabia. I don't know who we should believe now. You can see a snapshot of the banners placed on the websites of the Mobile Network Operators in Saudi Arabia.

      However upon further investigation I found that it is STC who is basically behind all this. They have started testing this in beginning of 2010 and keep on testing it and after successfully completing this they have launched it.

      Apple iPad 2 Prices and Availability in Saudi Arabia

It is about 607 grams in weight in all 3 Storage sizes (16GB, 32GB, 64).

      iPad 2 has a 9.7 inch TFT screen that is quite good for playing games, watching movies or reading newspapers and article online.

      iPad 2 has a lack in camera features. It has 2 cameras but both of them are not quite useful for taking photographs because the rear cam is only 0.7 MP. iPad 2 comes with iOS 4 a lates operating system from Apple. It has 1GHz dual-core processor which is good enough for playing games and performing heavy tasks like online video calling, ediiting photos etc. The most exciting thing about iPad 2 is its battery that runs up to 10 hours. It has 720 hours of stand-by time too. Currently it is available in Saudi Arabia, starting from 2800 Saudi Riyal to 3700 Saudi Riyal.

      HTC ChaCha Arabic Keyboard in High Resolution

      Few days ago I got to design a flyer for latest HTC's smartphone HTC ChaCha. Actually it was for Middle Eastern community who read and understand Arabic language. For the sake of a printed flyer I got to prepare HTC ChaCha Arabic keyboard in High resolution. I tried to look for it on Photo banks and free photo sharing sites but it seems to me that only I am the one who require it, No body else needed it ever. After not finding it online, I took few pictures of HTC ChaCha Arabic keyboard as it was made available to me that time and then imported that photos in Photoshop but the idea didn't work because those photos were very poor quality and cannot be used in a Print ad.

      So finally I created the Arabic Keyboard for ChaCha in Adobe Photoshop in high resolution specially for the advertisement. Now the flyer which I designed is printed.So I thought I should share the High resolution Arabic keyboard with other people too, so that people can utilize it in their designs if they need it.

      I made it available at Vecteezy.com for free. Anyone can download it from the link below. Don't forget to rate it and provide your feed back. Thanks

      Which is better Smartphone HTC ChaCha or Nokia E6

      HTC ChaCha vs Nokia E6

      HTC ChaCha and Nokia E6 are the smartphones that are very close in their specification and features but different in brands. Both of them have similar look, similar QWERTY keyboard and screen sizes. Both of them were announced during very close time period, i.e. early in 2011. As I am also a big fan of QWERTY keyboard as I have hands on experience on Nokia E71 and E72, so I thought to compare latest offers from HTC and Nokia with each other. The comparison would not go long in speach but it would be a specification comparison like the one I did for iPhone 4 and Desire HD.

      Google Adsense Official Arabic Blog

      I just came to know about Google Adsense Arabic blog from Google Adsense's Fan page at Facebook. The blog is located here. And there are quite amazing articles and information in arabic is available, as I gone through the blog I have found there are already 23 posts there on the blog. So it is not a brand new thing.

      As Google Adsense is getting popular in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries, this Arabic blog would be a nice asset for all the people who are native Arabic and have less or no understanding of English language.

      Nokia Mobile Prices in Pakistan August 2011

      Nokia mobile phones are getting a poor demand world wide these days. This is probably because of Nokia's policies.
