Report: Google Pixel 2 Smartphones Are Disappointing
Despite Big Bet On Hardware, Low Sales Expected


Google's entry-level Pixel 2 is made by fledgling Taiwanese company
HTC and shares the same boring design aesthetic than last year's
model with a 5" display, large top and bottom bezels and a single rear
camera. However, it does add a faster processor, water resistance,
and 2 front speakers. Price starts at $649 for 64GB of storage, only
$50 less than the equally boring iPhone 8.

A very good overview of the Apple-Qualcomm fight. Apple is asking for a $4 per device royalty.

Apple survey findings positive for iPhone and watch

Baird analyst William Power said his latest Apple survey suggests
strong interest for both iPhone 8 and X, with a higher skewing
toward the newer models than in years past.

He believes that should boost the average selling price, so he raised
his estimates modestly, but remains below consensus.

Power reiterated his Outperform rating and raised his
price target to $175 from $172 on Apple shares.

No mini headphone jack.

That's a deal breaker for me for the next few years until good cheap wireless headphones that match or beat my ultra cheap but very good sounding sonys.

Here’s What Google announced


Stuff I thought was interesting:

“Lens it.” That’s the phrase Google’s using for the new Lens feature on its Pixel phones. The tool lets you quickly find out information about all kinds of things, from books to albums to art, even to emails printed on flyers on a telephone poll.

(hard for apple to match this one, Amazon not so hard)


PixelBook is among today’s announcements. It has a 12.3-inch touch screen, is 10mm thick, and weighs one kilogram, and you can fold back the keyboard to put it into tablet mode or prop it up like a tent for movie-watching. The aesthetics look a lot like the Pixel phone

If you have multiple Google Home devices in your household, you’ll be able to use them as a public-announcement system, Chandra says—for instance, to declare that it’s time to get ready for school, a message that all your Homes will broadcast. “Kids are going to hate this feature,” he says.

Google’s Rick Osterloh says that the company is bringing on 2,000 hardware engineers as it moves into its second year as a maker of all kinds of devices, from Pixel phones to Google Home to Daydream View, and others.


(Amazon to me seems like the logical choice for the home. Who doesn't buy stuff on Amazon all the time?)

VERGE: GOOGLE HARDWARE IS NO LONGER A HOBBY


Instead, the key to Google's performance strategy is AI. If the curve of processor performance is flattening, Osterloh’s plan is to differentiate Google's products by integrating machine learning and AI.



Instead, Osterloh says, Google "wanted to try to keep it simple and nice and clean ... We're trying to be reminiscent of Google's main property: the big search box."

India considering exemptions sought by Apple, says government official
By Neha Dasgupta, Reuters - October 5, 2017

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The Indian government is considering exemptions sought
by Apple Inc (AAPL.O) for setting up a unit to assemble iPhones, Ramesh Abhishek,
the top bureaucrat in the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, said on
Thursday.

The department is a part of India's commerce and industry ministry.

Apple has asked federal government officials for a range of tax and policy changes
to help build out its iPhone assembly work in India.

It is seeking permission to open its own retail stores in India where it currently sells
iPhones through resellers.

India has given Chinese smartphone maker Oppo the go-ahead to open its own
single-brand retail stores, boding well for rivals like Apple, which are seeking similar
approvals.
