Toshiba Bringing “World’s Thinnest and Lightest” Android Tablet Along With Waterproof OLED Tablet To CES [Update]

After releasing one of the world’s thickest and heaviest Android tablets onto the market, Toshiba is looking to change their image at CES next week where the manufacturer will be showing off their new all new Excite (AT200) Honeycomb tablet. The device will measure in at an alarming 7.7mm thick and feature a 10.1-inch 1280×800 resolution display and judging by the image above, the Excite will look mighty sexy to boot. Powering the paper thin tablet is A 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP 4430 processor will be powering the paper thin tablet with other hardware including a 5MP rear/2MP front facing cameras, micro HDMI out and either 16GB or 32GB storage options.

Toshiba will also be displaying an all new waterproof tablet touting a bright OLED display. Can’t wait to see that one. CES fever has officially begun and Phandroid will be on hand bringing you the latest from one of the year’s biggest events.

Update: This image was leaked just a few moments ago showing off a new affordable 7-inch tablet from Toshiba with a Qualcomm processor. Not sure if this is any way related to the waterproof OLED tab mentioned above but I’m sure the CES showroom floor will be flooded with tablets such as this. Thanks, Marco!

Microsoft announces six new regions for its Windows Phone Marketplace
By Tom Warren on January 6, 2012 11:24 am

Microsoft is expanding the reach of its Windows Phone Marketplace to six additional markets in the near future. Windows Phone Developers can now target Argentina, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru and the Philippines with their applications. Three of the new markets, China, Indonesia and Malaysia, will require developers to adhere to additional requirements due to regulations and local laws. Microsoft has opened up the submission process early for devs due to this, ahead of a full Marketplace launch for end users, to give them a head start on application certification.

Microsoft is also rolling out a number of enhancements and bug fixes for its developer community, helping to improve the reporting and payout processes. Windows Phone recently hit the 50,000 apps barrier just under two months after it reached 40,000, proving that Marketplace growth is consistent. Microsoft appears to be on the verge of adding LTE-capable devices to its Windows Phone portfolio, and with Nokia's Rolling Thunder marketing effort poised for execution, the prospects for Windows Phone in 2012 seem fairly bright.

I pay attention to year over year growth.

Sequential quarter growth is not as telling

Who know Sly, Samsung refuses to report it, and they also refuse to report channel inventory numbers.

They could be stuffing the channel and we would have to wait a long time to find out.

<<First time I see anyone poopooing a $4.5 billion dollar profit for 3 months... LMFAO... too funny.>>

In Apple's fiscal q4 you poo-pooped Apple's results

From their conference call for that quarter

Net income was $6.6 billion, increasing 54% year-over-year

That was for 3 months.

So, in a poor quarter for Apple, they earned 2.1 billion (46%) more than Samsung did in a record quarter

Wait until Jan 24 to see a really impressive, record number

In terms of numbers, Apple’s App Store has earned about $4.9 billion in gross revenue for paid apps, while the Android Marketplace is estimated to have earned just $330 million in that market. Apple is beating Android in this area, primarily because of its overwhelming success in the paid apps market.

There are far more free apps on an Android than on an iPhone or iPad. About 14% of Apple’s app downloads are paid ones, compared to only 1% for Android. Google is new to the paid apps business and still has to learn how to make it into a major revenue-earner. (For some great apps, check out 6 iPhone Apps To Help You Budget Better.)

Platform
The main reason behind such a huge difference in revenues is the cultural gap between these two platforms. Apple has been able to build an ecosystem around its products that makes users hard-pressed to switch. However, Android still doesn’t have any such environment that makes people stick to it, which is a great opportunity for Apple.

While there is a lot of buzz surrounding the growth of Android, the Apple Store still beats the Android Marketplace in a very important area – revenues. Even though Google has a huge market share in the apps field, its Android market doesn’t make publishers nearly as much money as Apple does.

The app developers still choose iOS first for launching any app because they see more profit potential. According to Pipar Jaffray, a U.S. investment banking firm, Android developers earn just 7% of what iOS Apple Store earns for its developers.

In terms of numbers, Apple’s App Store has earned about $4.9 billion in gross revenue for paid apps, while the Android Marketplace is estimated to have earned just $330 million in that market. Apple is beating Android in this area, primarily because of its overwhelming success in the paid apps market.
