With $3m Ouya’s problems are just starting

Kickstarter has its latest king, and the Ouya Android console has found itself at the eye of a perfect storm of geek-appeal. Satisfying the retro lusts of console gamers with the open-source idealism of Android aficionados, all wrapped up in a minimal casing the designer cred of which should satisfy all but the most staunch of minimalists, Ouya has unsurprisingly blasted past the $3m mark and, with 28 days left to run, could well become the next poster-child of crowdsourced funding. Make no mistake, though; if previous Kickstarter heroes like Twine and Pebble thought they had problems, Ouya faces a nightmare along with all that cash.

Google Nexus 7 costs $151.75 to build, says iSuppli

Google Nexus 7 costs $151.75 to build, says iSuppli

Google dropped some hints that the Nexus 7 was essentially being sold at cost, and previous estimates have put the build cost of the 8GB version of the tablet at around $184 which would leave Google and ASUS with a mere $15 in profit. That’s not even taking into account marketing, research and development, and all the other areas that make up the creation of a gadget. Now IHS iSuppli has taken a look at the Nexus 7, and their own teardown estimate puts the cost at around $152.

Samsung Galaxy S III hits 9m pre-orders worldwide

Say what you will about the Galaxy S III, but Samsung is going to sell mountains of phones. The Korea Economic Daily is reporting that the Samsung Galaxy S III has already amassed around 9 million pre-orders with over 100 global carriers. That’s made even more impressive by the fact that the phone isn’t even ready to go in the United States yet. Samsung revealed that 20 million Galaxy S IIs had been shipped worldwide back in February, so the sequel is firmly on track to break that number.

Smartphone stars leave analysts addled

Smartphone stars leave analysts addled

Samsung took the smartphone sales crown in Q1 2012, unless of course it was Apple: turns out, analysts aren't entirely sure who's sitting top of the pile for high-tech phones. Conflicting sales numbers for the two firms from research companies IHS iSuppli and Strategy Analytics show a yawning 12.5m difference in estimates for Samsung's smartphone sales for the first three months of the year, enough to throw the rankings into confusion.

Samsung knocks Nokia from global phone top-spot

Samsung knocks Nokia from global phone top-spot

Samsung has ousted Nokia from the cellphone top-spot, taking the number one position in handset sales worldwide, according to research firms. New figures from IHS iSuppli and Strategy Analytics confirm that Nokia has finally slipped from its perch at the top of the cellular tower, the company's dwindling sales over the past few quarters driving it down to 22.5-percent marketshare in Q1 2012; in contrast, Samsung took 25.4-percent of the worldwide mobile phone marketshare in the same period, while Apple's stellar iPhone sales recently have pushed the company to 9.5-percent of the global marketshare.

Nokia has just six months to claw its way from collapse

Nokia has just six months to claw its way from collapse

Nokia has six months to redeem itself with Windows Phone, analysts warn, before it needs to find a "Plan B" other than Microsoft's platform. After dire financial warnings earlier this week, in which Nokia not only confirmed that Symbian device sales were ditching, but that Lumia Windows Phone sales were only a fifth of those Symbian volumes, the outlook for the company is grim. However, while many suggest Nokia isn't, in fact, to blame for the most significant shortcomings in its device strategy, that won't save it from failure if it doesn't turn things around.

Intel fends off ARM chip menace as Samsung stagnates

Intel may be under siege, but that hasn't slowed the chip manufacturer's progress: Intel recorded its largest market share in 10 years in 2011, it's claimed, with patchy performance from ARM-based rivals like Samsung. The x86 company's share was 15.6-percent of the overall semiconductor market, according to IHS iSuppli, up 2.5-percent from 2010. Meanwhile Samsung, which has been nipping at Intel's heels for the past few years, ground to a halt: growth stagnated in 2011, leaving Samsung with 9.2-percent of the overall market.

New iPad parts most expensive yet

New iPad parts most expensive yet

Apple spends more to make its new iPad than on any version of the tablet before, making less profit on each slate according to production research, with the Retina Display being a particular culprit. The calculations appear to confirm early suggestions that Apple's profit margin on the new iPad has been shaved away, with IHS iSuppli saying that the new iPad is around 9-percent more expensive in component costs compared to its iPad 2 equivalent at launch. Some of the increased costs are down to accommodating Apple's ambitions in functionality without compromising user experience.
