26-06-2015    ResoluteTM Electronics to offer manufacturing solution to Celkon Mobiles

 
Celkon opens phones manufacturing unit in Hyderabad
 
Celkon's unit is in Medchal and equipped with four assembly lines and has a capacity of two lakh units a month.

A number of mobile phone manufacturers are considering setting up units in Telangana, the State's IT Minister K.T. Rama Rao said on Friday. Inaugurating a facility of smartphone maker Celkon, which has been outsourcing from China, the Minister declared: "This is just the beginning. Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao is keen on a having a mobile manufacturing hub in Telangana.

"Micromax has decided to set up a plant near Hyderabad on 50 acres," the Minister said, adding he would be visiting South Korea and Japan soon to hardsell the State to electronic hardware manufacturers. Noting that both the Centre and the Telangana Government were on the same page with their 'make locally' approach, Mr. Rama Rao said that there were plans to develop hardware cluster in Maheswaram, Medchal and Ghatkesar, all near Hyderabad.

Celkon's unit is in Medchal and equipped with four assembly lines and has a capacity of two lakh units a month. It is to be expanded to 12 lines and a total of five lakh units capacity per month. Reiterating the focus of the Government on facilitating industrial growth to create jobs for youths, Mr. Rama Rao said that mobile phone units can provide large number of low-end employment opportunities to those from ITIs and diploma holders.

The State, he added, was keen on creating an eco-system that eventually will help host an analog Fab manufacturing unit. Celkon Chairman and Managing Director Y. Guru expressed satisfaction at becoming the first mobile phone manufacturer in south India. "This comes at a time when India is poised to become the largest consumer base for mobile phones and we are set to bring in a new phase of growth at Celkon," he said.

Executive Director Murali Retineni said that by next quarter the investment on the new facility will be around Rs.225 crore. Lion's share of Celkon monthly sales of 6-7 lakh units will be made in India.

05-01-2015    The Best Of CES '2015

news-image

CES 2015 was the biggest show the Las Vegas tech convention has had in years. Some of the biggest trends were innovations in home automation and the Internet of Things, a slew of more wearables, new smartphones and tablets, thinner and better laptops, 4K TVs and even self-driving cars. Here are a few picks from the best 25 products on display at CES 2015.
 
1) LG G Flex 2 Smart Phone :
LG's second generation of its curved smartphone was one of the biggest smartphone announcements at the show. LG said it has worked out the kinks of last year’s G Flex model and offers a phone with a 5.5-inch curved 1,080p OLED display. The company said the curved screen is a strengthened form of Gorilla Glass 3 and better absorbs contact from drops up to 30 percent. The G Flex 2 also features an improved "self-healing" back panel, meaning scuffs and marks from drops and bumps will disappear on their own in seconds. LG also said the phone's larger battery has fast-charging capabilities and is the only phone that can get 50 percent juice in less than 40 minutes of charging.

2) World's Thinnest Tablet: Dell Venue 8 7000 :
At just 6mm thin, the Dell Venue 8 7000 is the thinnest tablet in the world, even thinner than some of the most popular new smartphones on the market. The tablet has a durable aluminum casing, so the thin measurements don’t add concern about drops or bumps. The screen is a durable 8.4-inch 2,560 x 1,600 edge-to-edge OLED infinity display. The new Dell tablet is also the first consumer device to feature the Intel RealSense Snapshot Depth Camera, which incorporates a depth map in every picture taken.

3) Yota Phone 2 :
One of the biggest innovations in the mobile industry is the Yota Phone 2, which was first unveiled just four weeks ago. The Yota Phone impressed tech fans with its back-panel e-ink display. The phone's back display looks just like that of a Nook or Kindle and can stay on at all times, even when the phone's battery dies. With the world’s first double-screen smartphone, users can do pretty much everything on the e-ink screen that they can on the main one, including check email, get bar codes in apps scanned, use social media and more. As cool as it looks in pictures, the phone is even more impressive in person.

4) Intel's Button-Size Curie Computer :
Intel unveiled a button-size wearable computer called Curie that it said would be available later in 2015. Curie, Intel hopes, will drive the wearable computer market and be integrated with a bevy of Bluetooth low-energy radio, motion sensors, and task-specific components for consumer electronics and manufacturing. The tiny computer, by comparison, is significantly smaller than Intel's postage-stamp-size computer, called Edison.

5) Car-Tech Meets Smartwatch With This BMW Watch That Can Park Your Car :
Luxury automobile maker BMW showed its recent advances within its autonomous vehicle research divisions called Remote Valet Parking Assistant. This smartwatch-operated feature -- in theory -- parks and retrieves a car via a smartphone from a parking garage. According to BMW, the technology utilizes the car's 360-degree collision-avoidance system baked into its BMW i3 vehicles. The car uses laser scanners to record and identify objects surrounding the car. BMW will use this data in conjunction with a digital site plan of a parking garage to enable the BMW i3 to park and retrieve itself to a driver autonomously.

Wearable technology, fashionable technology, wearable devices, tech togs, or fashion electronicsare clothing and accessories incorporating computer and advanced electronic technologies. The designs often incorporate practical functions and features, but may also have a purely critical or aesthetic agenda .

Ever wondered that our mobile phones, in future, may turn into earrings which serve the purpose of a phone receiver and a neck piece used as a speaker? Technology, being a highly dynamic field is changing as we read this. The recent trend in technology is seen in the in gadgets which can be worn by us, hence the
  news-image1
name wearable technology.

Unlike PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant) which are hand held gadgets like mobile phones and cameras; wearable gadgets are attached to clothing and can be used as accessories or adornments. Though the advancement in this technology is relatively new, the concept has existed since decades. One of the earliest inventions in this department was the transition of a traditional pocket watch to a wrist watch in 1904 by Louis Cartier.
 
Latest technology devices:
A very recent development in the wearable technology is the release of “Google Glass” by the IT giant Google. The glass was invented with a purpose to provide smartphone like computing in an accessory which can be worn anywhere and can be hands free to use. Based on Android Operating system, input mechanisms are the touchpad on the side of the glass and a voice commander microphone. The glass has the ability to take photos and record videos and compatible applications are also being customized for this device.

In an answer to Google’s foray into Wearable Devices,

Apple is planning to release iWatch in 2014. The concept is to wear your entire iPhone on your wrist. With designers adding in the Apple button and a SIM card support, this is one of the top-notch, high-end technology to capitalize on.

Android based SmartWatches were introduced by Samsung Gear Live and KG G Watch. The Moto 360 is a venture, which will be released by Motorola for the tech-savvy generation. Its stylish looks and android platform will definitely give the other SmartWatches in the market, a stiff competition.
 
Why Wearable computers?
With technology developing at high intensity the consumers are getting more demanding in terms of innovations. Hence companies are looking to fulfil these demands and bank on the success of their products in the market.

Wearable technology is a field allowing users to use technology while on the go without interfering with the normal tasks.

The main aim of the device is to make it convenient to be used and handled with freedom to any movements and habits of the person.

Medical Technology- Latest innovations include headsets which measure brainwaves and wearable sensing devices to monitor personal health.

Education- Devices like Autographer, Keygloves and Google glass are instrumental in the education industry in the teaching and learning process.

Fashion- Designers are keen on creating a rage for

wearable technology in the fashion industry by developing apparel with LED technology, accessories like SmartWatches and glasses to keep this as a trending subject.

Sports- Sportswear is being redefined with the invention of ‘Alert Shirts’ which have been designed to let us in on what the players feel, by transmitting signals through Bluetooth smartphone app. The recently concluded FIFA too, saw a phenomenon, where the referees wore ‘Goal Control’ SmartWatches which helped them determine if the ball crossed the goal line, by the use of high speed goal cameras at each goal post.
