November 24, 2014
RnRMarketResearch.com adds Global and China TFT-LCD Industry Report, 2014-2015 market research to the electronics intelligence and data collection of its online library. This research says the TFT-LCD industry touched the bottom in 2011, then has warmed up slowly since 2012 and is expected to reach its peak in early 2015, but it will fall into another lengthy decline stage by 2016. Complete report is available athttp://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/global-and-china-tft-lcd-industry-report-2014-2015-market-report.html. After the TFT-LCD industry slumped, TFT-LCD vendors in different countries chose varying countermeasures. South Korean vendors represented by Samsung strived to explore the OLED field. In Japan, Sharp transferred to be a small and medium-sized panel vendor, produced mobile phone panels with 8.5-generation lines and vigorously developed IGZO technology. Hitachi, Sony and Toshiba set up a joint venture -- Japan Display (referred to as JDI) to develop LTPS technology. Taiwanese vendors developed 4K HD technology. Chinese mainland vendors promoted the construction of new production lines at low costs aggressively. As a result, Chinese mainland vendors are the most notable winners, followed by Taiwanese and Japanese counterparts, while Samsung is the biggest loser.

Catching up with the times

SINGAPORE - At first glance, it is easy to mistake LG's latest smart watch as a conventional watch - and that is one of its biggest strengths. Released in the middle of this month, the G Watch R (R to stand for "round"), which comes only in black, sports a 100 per cent stainless steel frame, with a 1.3-inch round plastic OLED display and genuine leather 22mm straps that can be replaced with standard straps from watch shops for a different look. The classic side crown gives it a more regal look and LG said the design was derived from thousands of sketches. At a time when smart watches are still trying to find a foothold in the mass market, beyond reaching out to early adopters, it appears that LG has received the message that appearance matters: The typical smart watch, including the G Watch R's predecessor - the G watch - and its rectangular display may look too "techie" for the mainstream user. While LG is not the first to have a rounded smart watch (Motorola's Moto 360 has a round watch face), its move towards a more classic watch design is highly commendable.

Nexus 6 vs Moto X (2nd gen): Should you really spend that Rs 12,000 more?
November 23, 2014
Google Nexus 6 and Moto X (2nd gen) are both made by Motorola and share an 'almost similar' spec sheet. But the former is priced at Rs 43,999 while the later is available at Rs 31,999. Of course, at Rs 12,000 more, the Nexus 6 offers better display, 4K camera, a better CPU, more RAM and a bit more here and there. But does it make sense for a regular user to spend Rs 12,000 more for the new Nexus smartphone? Yes, but only, if you can unleash the true potential of the Nexus 6. If you are one of those buyers who just like boasting about specs and not using it in reality, then it makes very little sense in buying the Nexus 6. Here is why
