Wonder walls; The future of television is here as leading brands unveil their latest and greatest at a recent industry show, writes Jamie Carter
October 17, 2014
Television has changed so fast. At the start of this century the idea of every home having a 40-inch widescreen, flat screen TV that gets online and shows high-definition detail was unthinkable. Such concepts were for the distant future, but little more than a decade later we already take HDTVs for granted. So what's next? We can forget 3D. While it's set to continue as a default feature in most TVs, demonstrations of new-look 3D technology were missing at Berlin's Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) last month, where the world's TV makers unveiled exactly what they're working on in the labs and, therefore, their visions for the future of TV. The next few years are all about Ultra HD or 4k televisions, all of which boast a resolution panel four times as detailed as modern full HD TVs. That, of course, means bigger, slimmer and flatter TVs are needed - and why not add a curve, too?

October 16, 2014
Moscow . OREANDA-NEWS. Yota Devices invested only USD 15 million in development and making the first YotaPhone, 1/10th the orginal iPhone cost of development.International companies invest much more in development of their smartphone models. For example, Nokia invested USD 200 million in this in 2012-2013, and development of the original iPhone ended up costing approximately USD 150 million.Yota Devices had approximately 70 people working for it when the first-generation YotaPhone was being developed, enabling the company to make decisions several times faster than the decision-making process at the larger companies. And this certainly helped to cut costs quite substantially. The company explains the difference in smartphone development costs versus the world's major manufacturers by Yota's rational approach to ogsanization of its operations, Lenta.ru reports.Yota Devices also made extensive use of freelancers and consultants, which is far less expensive than paying full-time employees. Altogether, about USD 50 million was invested in organizing the business to develop, set up the production and promotion of two YotaPhone smartphone models.This money was spent to put together an international team, a structure for sales and post-sales service in Russia and overseas. This amount also included the cost of advertising.As a reminder, the first YotaPhone model went on sale in December 2013. Apart from Russia and the CIS, the YotaPhone is available in Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Austria, the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and the UAE.Its key distinguishing feature is its two screens, one the conventional LCD screen on the front, and another one based on the E Ink technology.
