Samsung Z560: first HSDPA phone in the Philippines?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: November 7, 2006

Before, I didn't know that 3G and HSDPA were different. The gals from Globe insists that HSDPA is better and calls it 3.5G. So, that's why I'm getting better speeds with Globe Visibility than Smart 3G on 3G covered areas. Then, the other night, they asked me to test a demo phone - the Samsung Z560. It really looks like a Motorola Razr to me. See pics below: They claim it's the 1st HSDPA phone in the country, and probably the rest of South East Asia. The specs: Built-in 2 megapixel camera Allows Video telephony and streaming MP3 ringtone capable…

3G vs. HSDPA: Does speed matter?

Relevance: 74%      Posted on: December 28, 2008

3G or HSDPA -- most mobile users would not mind the difference these two have when it comes to connecting via mobile 3G internet. This is mainly because most people think 3G in the Philippines is slow anyway. I looked into this to see if the difference between 3G and HSDPA speeds really matter. 3G (3rd Generation of Telecommunication Standards) is a standard of cellular connectivity which allows for speeds of up to 384 Kb/s downstream and 64 Kb/s upstream. 3G HSDPA is a 3G enhancement -- HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) is a new mobile data protocol and is…

Road Speeds: HSDPA, EDGE, GPRS

Relevance: 72%      Posted on: April 7, 2007

We left Bataan early this afternoon to visit Mt. Samat. We're now in Angeles City, Pampanga having dinner at Camalig and listening to good 'ole music. While cruising, I got the chance to capture HSDPA, EDGE and GPRS speeds (of Globe 3G/Visibility) thru NetMeter and this is what I got. HSDPA speed averages at around ~132KB/s download, EDGE at ~15KB/s and GPRS at a paltry ~6KB/s (while downloading John C. Dvorak's Cranky Geeks podcast). While cruising at HSDPA is like heaven, coverage isn't that great, though I was told by people from Globe that the roll-outs have been underway since…

HSDPA laptops in 2007

Relevance: 71%      Posted on: December 28, 2006

I mentioned this to the girls over at Globe the last time we had a thanksgiving dinner. Since Laptops with built-in HSDPA cards are starting to come out, would it not be a good marketing idea to bundle these rigs with SIM cards. HP is coming out with one model, Compaq 6400, while Lenovo is partnering with Cingular to do the same. Dell signed a deal with Vodafone to offer the same 3G-ready laptops (Dell Latitude D420) and I think Acer has one too. If them telcos can easily snag new customers by bundling cellphones with postpaid plans even at…

Qualcomm’s SnapDragon S4 Pro Benchmarked

Relevance: 70%      Posted on: July 25, 2012

NVidia's Tegra 3 processor has been the most popular quad-core processor for tablets and smartphones alike while Samsung's Exynos 4 Quad processor is only seen perform on the Galaxy S3. Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 (Krait) is the closest competitor to NVidia and Samsung although it's just a dual-core chip. Qualcomm's now seeding out a tablet that features their SnapDragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad-core processor. It's only for developers for now but if you want an unit to play with, it's selling it for $1,299 here. The Verge ran a number of synthetic benchmarks on the tablet (comes with 2GB RAM) with…

Qualcomm debuts own SmartWatch, calls it Toq

Relevance: 69%      Posted on: September 6, 2013

Samsung’s new Galaxy Gear ain’t the only digital wristband that’s making quite a splash in this year’s IFA in Berlin, Germany as Qualcomm also unveiled its very own SmartWatch/companion watch called Toq (pronounced as Tok). Compared to Samsung, Qualcomm has taken a more conservative approach in creating their smartwatch; a substance-over-style/feature ideology if you may. As such, what the Toq may lack in additional functionalities like a camera found on the Galaxy Gear, it compensates for better mileage as implied by the inclusion of Qualcomm’s power-efficient display technology called Mirasol. Some of the other advantages that Toq has Sammy’s companion…

One of Qualcomm's latest technology, the Toq smartwatch for Android smartphones, is set to arrive in December with a $350 price tag. We first wrote about the Toq when it was announced back in September. To give you a recap, the Toq doesn't have a built-in camera like the Samsung Gear but features a power-efficient display called Mirasol, wireless charging support, and support for Toq wireless headsets. Watch the hands-on video of PCMag below: Qualcomm Toq will arrive on December 2, 2013 for $349.99 and will be available from {via}

Will Nokia go Qualcomm for WP7?

Relevance: 65%      Posted on: March 13, 2011

Had a chance to have a private lunch with the Country Manager of Qualcomm last week and our talks revolved around smartphones, tablets and 3G devices (since these are the main business their company is into anyway). We also discussed how the popularity of the iPad (and the newer iPad 2) might have also spurred the tablet movement with Android tablets coming in at a close second. The result, more manufacturers turning to Qualcomm to provide them with the chip to power their tablets -- and thus the Snapdragon chip came to the immediate rescue. While the upcoming tablets this…

Day One Tour at the Qualcomm Headquarters

Relevance: 65%      Posted on: November 29, 2012

Qualcomm's Editors Week is an annual event hosted by the company in their San Diego Headquarters in the last 3 or 4 years. The week-long event aims to immerse the tech media from emerging regions about Qualcomm's effort in the mobile market. In short, it's a series of nose-bleeding seminars about chipsets, LTE and everything else that involves the mobile platform. Actually, our first day yesterday was mostly touring the city via the trolley and just getting our feet wet in the area (I mostly spent the rest of the day shopping at the Microsoft Store and Apple Store). Today…

Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 820

Relevance: 63%      Posted on: March 3, 2015

Qualcomm just announced their next-generation chip for mobile devices -- the Snapdragon 820. Unlike the 810, Qualcomm went back to the drawing board and focused on Qualcomm Zeroth, their first cognitive capable platform. Not much was revealed about the 820 but Qualcomm teases us that the Snapdragon 820 processor is designed on a leading edge FinFET process node which features a new 64-bit, custom Kryo CPU. To better understand what the cognitive technology can be used in our devices: Qualcomm is expected to release the first batch of Snapdragon 820 in the middle of the year so that might take…
