Starbucks insert terminals wireless charging LDCs in its counters (in USA first)

Citadins or coming to town, you’ve probably already stopped in a Starbucks to refuel energy, a small cafe latte macchiato, a brownie and it is repartee! Soon you can also recharge your Smartphone. And yes, Starbucks is a strategic move to give consumers another reason to pass the door of the brewery. In partnership with Duracell Powermat, Starbucks announced that they would launch a campaign to set up special table, each composed of one or more wireless terminals to terminals connected by induction charging.

By starting in the United States right now in the region of San Francisco particular, it is now normal to recharge your smartphone while drinking his coffee, chatting or surfing on Wi-Fi from Starbucks. Free son and without the technological system will first be deployed in 7500 Starbucks in the U.S. and in other stores of the company as Teavanna Fine Tea or Tea Bars and that in the next three years, but next year in Europe and Asia for Starbucks.

Tables and counters will be equipped with “Powermat Spots.” Small round tinted windows hiding a developed Powermat technology that promotes standard Power Matters Alliance or PMA. This is the standard competitor of another induction system that you can know to be the most acclaimed in Asia and the world, including brands such as LG, Nokia, Motorola outside the U.S. models Qi system but also some HTC, Sharp, Nexus 4, 5 and 7 of Google and Samsung, all for some particular model of course. On the other hand the Standard LDCs also included some of these brands should therefore now prefer this SYSTUS has the Qi standard in the future. AT & T, Blackberry, HTC, Huawei, LG, Microsoft, Qualcomm, Samsung, TI, ZTE and Apple are part indirectly. Apple has indeed already developed specific cases LDCs, Powercases that are sold for $ 120 or 90 € in the Apple Stores in the States. Unfortunately there are not many compatible smartphone with this standard at the moment. And it is not a coincidence that Starbucks has chosen this.

Even if they are not alone, it is not insignificant that Apple is the first to propose a system compatible with this standard. It is clear that Starbucks and Apple have affinities forever. United States already offer some Starbucks Apple products but also systems available unpublished payment on iPhones and other download service dedicated music sponsored by the American brewery. We can therefore reasonably expect that the next iPhone 6 and iWatch have this technology integrated charging by induction to their system. Meanwhile other brands there will probably either by offering special cases, is also integrating the PMA system.

Even if it is that only Starbucks, it is a big publicity stunt for the PMA standard in the market for wireless charging. Major brands and might of seen as a strong argument to favor this technology.
So many questions can be asked: What future for the Qi technology? The MediaTek processors are potentially closer to the standard Qi, would it affect the market? Macdonald will he of BigMaQi? -Will there be of Qi’ck ‘n Toast?

OnePlus one Soon on test in JTGeek and available at SciPhone

The OnePlus one has done like Xiaomi in its time, a lot of noise, cast many E-Ink, and quite a few disappointed not to acquire the precious only recommend on the web.

But here, China remains China and we begin to see the famous come-One about the underground market, which gives us a little hope.

Hope only because this version is only TD-CDMA/TD-LTE therefore reserved for China Mobile and will have no interest to test whether this is a test for a test.

The price also calm with 2100rmb, 270 € (360$) for OnePlus One that will not work in China and not even with my operator. lol

So we will need a little patience to get their hands on this OnePlus (or maybe at the next Chrono flash sale June 18) and find out this OnePlus and 3GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at S801 MSM8974AC 2.5ghz and 11S Cyanogenmod ROM …… Because this really is the most important after all …….

Xiaomi wish to enter the U.S. market in 2015

Xiaomi wish to enter the U.S. market in 2015

Fan of JTGEEK you know, Xiaomi has made much talked about in recent years thanks to an image of the company combining the research of high quality for high-tech devices at low cost and with its phones and Android tablet are the window of the user interface MIUI, one of the most catchy and ergonomic market.

Originally the company phones are only available in China, but recently Xiaomi began its expansion into new markets with as a starting point the renaming of its sites walking towards replacing Xiaomi Mi for foreign markets they wants to win in 2014, including Singapore, Brazil, India, Russia, Turkey, Mexico …. and soon the United States?

According to Hugo Barra the former Google recruited last year and new Vice President of Xiaomi, the company plans to enter the U.S. market next year.
“We will start working on the North America next year … It is in the pipeline”

A portion of what makes attractive Xiaomi phones are their high-end features and build quality of some available cheap … but in the North American market many people think they already pay low prices for phones via subsidies network providers. Of course, an Android device or an unlocked iPhone can cost well over $ 600 when you buy it without a contract. But most consumers do not pay $ 100 to $ 200 by signing a 2 year contract with an operator. And it is an ingrained habit in the American system, far more than in any other market really. Even in our subsidies are becoming scarce among operators.

“I believe in the future, people will be less tolerant of terminal to be unnecessarily expensive”

It’s always Hugo Bara who speaks in insisting that this trend will be in his more widespread around the world. But the U.S. will wait for Xiaomi 2015 is already working to launch 10 new markets …
It is likely that the relatively cheap phones Xiaomi, they are sold without a contract, might actually seem a little expensive for these grants used buyers. But Barra said that other savvy shoppers buy such Google Nexus smartphones without a contract which already show that there is a market that would base on people willing to pay $ 300 for an unlocked smartphone and save money over time with less wire without subscription. Basically it is a model home is similar to that developed by Mobile Free.
Xiaomi will probably want to target potential customers … the same way that rival Chinese companies and Oppo OnePlus that have been entered the U.S. market recently. These firms do not tend to want to dethrone Samsung or Motorola or even HTC commercial space for Android phones U.S. in 2015. Instead, the company instead plans to a foot in the door! And this could be good news for fans of Android smartphones released as we also expect Xiaomi arrives in Europe!

The battle will be tight. Lenovo K series is at the manufacturer’s brand of high-end devices. The K900 had shone last year with his Quad Core Intel Atom Z2580 hypertreading. Vibe Z K910 was his legitimate successor meanwhile offering excellent performance with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. The K920 Vibe Z2, pro version if you like, will still be a step up in terms of performance than its predecessors, but also in size as this one reaches 6 inch Quad HD resolution 2560 x 1440p. The device will be powered by a processor now well known and widespread, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974 that will equip almost all the Hi-End Smartphones of time providing 4G LTE except Meizu and Huawei as usual. The K920 is also equipped with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, a main camera for rear 16Mpx 5Mpx front, a composite alloy casing and run on Android 4.4 KitKat. For the price the device will be competitive and will sell for around 2,999 yuan or about € 375 ($ 500), certainly more expensive than the One of OnePlus, but with a builder and an engineer that have proved their worth.
