After unveiling the latest Jellybean android 4.1, the search engine giant has official announced the much talked Google Nexus 7 Tablet, though it was difficult for Google to keep Nexus tablet as a secret as almost everything about the Nexus 7 was leaked before Google unveiled it but Nexus appears to be getting very good at designing tablets. Google Nexus 7 is well expected to be an affordable table for obvious reasons, to compete with iPad and Kindle fire. The exact release has not yet announced to its Indian user but is likely to be in Q3 2012, but in it will be made available in US, UK and Australia this July so let see what Google Nexus 7 is to offer its android user.


As expected Google Nexus 7 runs on newly launched Jelly Bean 4.1 Android with 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processer on a capacity of 1GB RAM letting it users to enjoy an all new fast performance, a beautiful and responsive screen experience but sadly it does not come with a microSD card slot, so you are limited to its original capacity.


The Nexus 7 is 198.5 x 120 x 10.45mm 7-incher weighs in at 340 grams making lighter than iPad, Kindle Fire: at just 340g, the Nexus 7 is the weight of a fairly slim book.

The Google Nexus 7 comes with Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity and Google Wallet preinstalled and will be available in 8GB and 16GB flavors.

The bad: The lack 3G and 4G and only a 1.2MP front-facing snapper and as mentioned earlier you are limited to its 1GB capacity, the obvious reason for exclusion of these features is the price keeping it as low as possible.
So let’s wait and watch this July to explore the experience Google Nexus 7.

Samsung Galaxy S3


Samsung has truly lived up to its tag line “Next is what “with the introduction of Samsung Galaxy S3, I am completely bowled over and force to think “ Next is what “. Samsung is always known for best android phones in budget range, from low cost Samsung music hero to higher end Samsung Galaxy S3. I have not found the touch screen quality in other brands which Samsung is offering.



Samsung has yet again crossed a milestone by launching Samsung Galaxy S3 which to offer features from Intelligence to sharing to its greatness, very easy-to-use but exceptionally powerful. Its S Voice feature simple turns your Samsung Galaxy S3 into speech to text mode. You can talk, give instructions, turn off an alarm for few more minutes, and let you enjoy little more early morning sleep, answer or reject or a call, turn the music up or down, or even tell the camera when to shoot.





India became the first few countries to see the launch of Samsung Galaxy S3 android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system and currently the most expensive android phone available in the market. Priced at Rs.38900 on flipkart


Powered with 1.4 GHz Quad Core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. Samsung Galaxy S3 offers sensibility and simplicity thereby enabling the user to do multitasking easily. The Smartphone sports a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with 1280x720p resolution making this Smartphone versatile and easy to use. The bottom of the device houses the Micro-USB port which can be used for both charging and HDMI out.


Capture the unforgettable memories of your loved ones no matter which part of the world you reside in sharp and vivid colors on Samsung Galaxy S3’s 8 megapixel camera with LED flash. Enjoy features like face and smile detection, Geo-tagging, auto focus and Image editor. The Smartphone weighs a 133g and is available in shades of Pebble Blue and Marble White.

As their official website says about design “whether it’s the oceans’ horizons or majestic forest of Nordic firs, one thing is apparent: there are no straight lines in nature. Samsung Galaxy S3’s minimal and organic design is reflected in its smooth and non-linear lines. Its human centric natures provided an ergonomic and comfortable experience with enhanced usability. Its comfortable grip, gentle curve, and platinum organic form deliver a natural look and feel “. Says and hold true about the design of Samsung Galaxy S3.

All I can saydesigned for humans, Inspired by nature”


Below are some of comments from the community’s trusted reviewers :
“The Galaxy S3 is a solid, capable phone. But its most important feature may be ubiquity.” Mossberg brings up an interesting point: “The Galaxy S3 lacks any game-changing capabilities and is instead packed with a dizzying array of minor new tricks that users will turn to frequently. There are so many of these that it can take hours to learn and configure them. I had the strong impression Samsung’s designers failed to focus and just threw in as many technical twists as they could, some of which didn’t work very well.” — Walt Mossberg, All Things D

“So is it an iPhone killer? Let’s call it a worthy contender. It’s not worth breaking your current contract over, but if you’re in the market for a new, top-of-the-line Android phone then [the S3] should be a top consideration.” — Hayley TsukayamaWashington Post

“Galaxy S3 is a technological triumph. Not at first sight, perhaps, but Samsung has done the overwhelming majority of things right. The camera is easily the best I’ve used on an Android device, the processor claims the title of benchmarking champion, and the customizations layered on top of Ice Cream Sandwich are mostly unobtrusive and sometimes even helpful.” — Vlad SavovThe Verge

While struck with the Samsung Galaxy S3, David Pogue of the New York Times remarked, “…with great flexibility comes great complexity. The phone bombards you with warnings and disclaimers–sometimes upside-down. You really need a Learning Annex course to master this thing.
Nathan Olivarez-Giles of Wired was not so keen with the new Samsung galaxy s Smartphonet, saying, “…simply doesn’t feel like a finished product. It could use more polish, more thought, and a more elegant user experience.” He also picks on Samsung’s TouchWiz software, which “includes a lot of half-baked features that aim for innovation but miss the mark–sharing apps in particular. Styling is boring, and not exciting enough for a flagship phone.”

Ed Baig of USA Today, on the other hand, almost found the Galaxy S3 complete apart from its lacking S Voice feature that will not work as seamlessly as voice-enable assistant Siri on the Apple iPhone.

Nokia PureView 808


Nokia no doubtably has raised the bar way to high by introducing Nokia 808 in the Smartphone arena and has given a serious thinking to its competitors. I will call Nokia 808 is another classic milestone as Nokia is known to surprise the tech community. Whether its low cost mobile like Nokia 1100, oh yeah, who can forget that with a punch line “Raat ko Bhi Chalta Hai “. Still the best in that category (out of market though) or the newest one Nokia 808.


No doubt Samsung Galaxy S3 is the best in the class but I would not call Nokia 808 as a competition mobile rather contemporary. Both Samsung Galaxy S3 and Nokia 808 are best of their times and offering the best to their respective user.

HOW TO USE THE INTERNET TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS

Are you a company that has a low advertising budget? If so, there are a variety of fairly new low-cost advertising and promotional tools that you can use. If you have a business and you want to expand your territory but cannot afford to plant stores all around, you can take advantage of the Internet’s many free or low-cost tools. Nearly everyone in business is on the Internet now, and they enjoy the convenience and ease of buying from or learning more about your business online. Give your customers what they want by having a sound presence online.

Steps:

1. Set up your own website. You can either set up your own website or you can pay someone to set it up for you. You can usually have a nice website designed by yourself for as little as $5.00 per month plus yearly registration of your domain name, the website address. If you are a Indian national check out BIGROCK. Domain registration is as low as $2  per year or check the GoDaddy .Most importantly, your website needs to have easily navigated layouts, be filled with useful and interesting information, and be free of junk or unhelpful things. Avoid using anything that will discourage a customer from lingering; this is one time when some upfront paid advice from a web designer can be well worth it and will pay itself back in no time.
  • Besides just information about your business and your sales basket, what else can you offer? Think of adding articles, individual stories about staff and company events, how-to information using your products or services, lessons learned anecdotes, freebies such as downloadable craft tutorials or a free eBook, etc. Be generous and your customers will be impressed, checking back regularly for more. Submit your website name to many website directories. You can search the Internet for free website directories and you will find quite a few links to places where you can advertise.

2. Use pay per click advertising. Advertising online has a large reach and is the way many sites thrive or even survive online. You can set a price that you would be willing to pay every time someone clicks on an ad that you write. You only have to pay this when someone clicks on your ad. If no one clicks on your ad, you do not have to pay. These ad formats allow you to set up a daily advertising budget and you have the freedom to cancel and restart your ads any time you want.

  • Use ‘sidebar ads’. These display ads while people are playing games. Consider also expanding into ads on apps for smart phones and electronic tablets.
  • Use Google ads on the side of your Google bar. If you type in something, then it will come up on the right side of your search results as small ads.
  • Be considerate about placement of ads on your website and be careful about the types of ads you’re willing to have shown on your website. Do you really want your competitor’s ads showing up?

3.Use YouTube to promote your business. Perhaps one of the most popular and creative way to show more information about your business is to use videos. Some examples of how to do this include:
  • Upload a video of your company, and put on as many links as you can from all sorts of topics so as many people as possible see it.
  • Videotape launches and other public events promoted by your business so that clients who couldn’t make these events are still able to catch up on what happened.
  • Video how-to information related to your business, so that when someone is looking how to solve a problem your business has knowledge of, they find your video answer and learn more about you. Self-help videos on common, basic problems can be a great way to show your business’s sharing side and to garner interest from potential new customers.
  • Create an ongoing story line showing customers using and enjoying your products or services. This may require a little more work but stories rope people in and they’re far more likely to remember your business if there’s a regular mini soap opera to tune into!

4.Participate in forums and blogs. This is one way to help promote your product or services, showing yourself as an expert and as someone who genuinely wants to help resolve people’s problems. Often you can do this for free. However, this option has one huge caveat––be sure to post in forums that are website promotion friendly if you intend on using your URL or emblazoning the post with your business details. Not all blog sites or forums allow promotion blog or forum posts and breaching this could see your business blocked and even badmouthed. In some cases you may have to pay a fee to advertise on their sites but usually you do not. In many cases, simply stating that you’re the founder/owner/director/community manager, etc. of a certain site can be sufficient to alert people to the good your company is doing online. Let them do the rest of the adding up and finding of you––consumers are intelligent.

Make use of user pages on sites that allow this. It can be a great way to promote your business, especially if you contribute information to the website that in turn leads readers back to your user page for more details.



5.Use email marketing. You can create lists of customers, or potential customers that you can keep in touch with on a regular basis. However, be aware that many recipients regard this as spamming and may complain. Always seek to get the agreement of customers to be emailed first, and always take into account spamming laws, which detail that you’re not allowed to send people information they do not want. It makes good business sense to only send information to people who want to hear about your products or services and not to those who do not. These e-mailings can all be sent out in bulk, as if you were sending them through postal mail.

Spend a lot of time making emailed information worth the recipient’s time. Prepare a newsletter filled with useful information about living life in general, or with humorous anecdotes, etc.; don’t just email updates about your business and marketing pitches. Be subtle!


6.Get on Facebook. if you’re not already there. Even if your business does have a Facebook account, make sure it is optimized to get the most from it. Use Facebook ads, updates and Fan pages to keep fans posted on your business happenings.
  • As a business, just be careful to get your business a Facebook Page and not a Profile; profiles are for individual people only and they are limited in what you can do as a business. Moreover, if Facebook discovers you using a profile as a business, you stand to lose the whole profile and all the friends your business has accrued.
  • Keep updates relevant and interesting. Don’t just talk about your business though; share anecdotes, news items, comments about things seen on fan’s pages, images, etc.
  • Hold little competitions for customers to win small prizes. For example, if your business makes Eco-friendly items, have fans answer a quiz or send in photos of themselves doing something sustainable in order to win one of your Eco-products. Follow up with a photo of the winner holding your product; make use of every opportunity to interact with fans online. Do not involve Facebook buttons such as “Like”, “Share”, and “Tag” as part of any contest though; this is against Facebook terms of service.

7.Take your business to Twitter. Get a good Twitter handle for your business and start tweeting updates. However, remember that Twitter is a conversation, not just a place to push your products or services. Be sure to instruct employees to interact with online fans.
  • For a small business, the best policy is to cover what’s expected of online interaction, then ask your employees to use their best judgment when using an aggregated Twitter account. This builds trust and self-monitoring and will help to keep the flow of conversation going well for your business. The only exception to an aggregate Twitter account is for an employee you don’t trust. In which case, why don’t you trust this person? Does this person really belong on your team or is it simply a case that they’ve a lot to learn yet? Be honest with yourself.
  • Seek insight from those following you. Ask them questions to find out what they want from your business, whether it’s more, something different or for your business to stop doing something. These insights are invaluable information and are part of the conversation flow.
  • Encourage sharing of your Twitter information by making it interesting and worth people’s while. As well as business information, share a few random fun things too, like photos, inspirational messages and charity efforts your business is involved in.
  • Add tweets to your website so that customers can see real time what is getting tweeted about your business.
  • You don’t need to be sitting around tweeting all day. Use a tweet schedule service like TweetLater or Hootsuite to schedule your tweets to appear when you’d like them to, all while you’re doing other things. This lets you take advantage of different time zones around the world too. If you ask for email digests, you can check these in good time and respond to someone who has tweeted, sooner rather than later, if needed. Moreover, email digests allow you to track trends and topics on Twitter that are of importance to your business.

8.Become a part of Pinterest. Pinterest has created an platform for visual social media input and your company can make the most of this by feeding in well taken photos of your business products and other relevant images. Make them interesting, compelling and shareable though; some creative effort will need to be put into the photos to make Pinterest users want to share the photos around. As with any advertising, focus on what makes your products interesting and desirable and try to capture that in photographs.
  • Crowdsource using Pinterest. A creative way to get the crowd to promote your products for you is to ask your Pinterest followers to pin pictures of themselves holding, using or standing near a product of yours. Repin these onto your “beloved customers” (or some such) board. This gives your customers the chance to feel that they’ve been noticed and cared about and it also tells future customers that people use your products––and love them!
  • Encourage your employees to pin pictures from your website or of official events to spread among their friends. Ask that they include a socially relevant comment to help engage others looking at the pinned photo or image but don’t direct them; they’re more likely to know what to do innately than any directives could ever establish!

9.Go on Google+ Business Pages. A more recent stream of consciousness in the world of social media, your business really should be here as well as on Twitter and Facebook. It’s still unfolding and this is a niche time to establish your business’ presence. Join groups, share photos and information and link up with your customers in Google Hangouts.



10.Use surveymonkey to get much needed insights for your business. You can link to surveymonkey surveys using your website, Twitter, Facebook and Google+ accounts. And get this––almost every person loves a survey. Ask people directly what they want and you’ll find out in no time.
Ask for feedback on products, services and promotions. Be prepared for honesty!Keep the survey short and interesting.


11.Keep social media interactionsmeaningful and considerate. Social media is a great tool for businesses but it can also be misused and create follower fatigue, unlikes and unfollows and general annoyance if misused. As part of this:

  • See your fans and followers as people first, customers second. Make that vital connection as human-to-human because this is what online social media acolytes expect and they’re far from impressed from a business that assumes superiority. Befriend people, follow them and take an interest in them as much as you expect the same back. Interact and talk the talk with them; don’t simply assume that because you’re selling something that they want that that is all you need to do online.
  • Provide meaningful content that matters. What you share, say and produce online must have resonance for your followers and not be a slavish reproduction of “buy our product”. Link with people and organizations that your brand should be linked with and share their content around too, and converse with them openly online.
  • Be knowledgeable rather than jumping on bandwagons. Hashtags on Twitter and Facebook campaigns can be compelling. But do they match what your brand is trying to say? Often it’s better to wait until all the facts are out before throwing your weight behind a cause that simply springs up online overnight.
  • While it is important to trust those of your employees who are representing you on social media, be sure that they “get” what it means to connect and interact with others online. Don’t force employees to do it if they’re uncomfortable or show any signs of irritability or cynicism. Your business cannot afford rudeness or faux pas caused by lack of motivation.
  • Learn from errors made using social media and online resources. Mistakes will happen and your business will recover from them. Learn the lessons these incidents teach you and don’t repeat them.
Tips

  • Usually in order to set up your own website for your business you need to purchase both a web hosting program, which, as mentioned above, can be purchased for as cheap as USD$5.00 a month. Usually a great package deal for a website can be purchased for about USD$10.00-15.00 a month. Also, you can purchase online store sites, also called e-commerce sites, which usually average in price of about USD$60.00 a month.
  • Even though advertising on the Internet can still cost money, the beauty of advertising and have your store stationed on the Internet is that you do not have to spend large amounts of money on paper advertising. Furthermore, you do not waste as much natural resources such as trees and plastic when you promote over the Internet. And you can advertise more in-house than having to use more expensive advertising agencies to do the work for you.
  • You can also keep business cards in local stores, mail out flyers to residents when you’re having a sale, get listed in a business directory if your town has one, pin up posters, and more. In each case of print advertising, add your website, Twitter and Facebook addresses so that people can find out more online.
  • Be creative with your marketing, and you will save time and money.
  • Another way to advertise to visit workshops associated with your business. There you can network with others in your business and get ideas on what works and what doesn’t. Studying your competition is a great way to see what you are up against, and even learn from their mistakes! Create an email account, wiki or Facebook group to stay in touch with the people you’ve met on these occasions.
  • Remember your business basics. The best form of advertising is free––that’s word of mouth. If you’re an excellent business with superior customer service, your customers will tell everyone they know about their experience. That makes their friends and family remember your business name when they are in need of your products and/or services.
  • To keep an eye on your tweets if you’re using Firefox, use the TwitterFox extension to save you having to open Twitter all of the time.
  • Do not neglect the webinar as a valuable way to promote your company. People love webinars; they feel a part of something bigger and they’re learning something for nothing. There are some great webinar programs online that don’t take long to learn; all you need to do is decide some decent topics to hold a webinar on.
 Warnings
  • Online consumers are savvy, smart and wise to socially unintelligent business interaction. Treat customers as you would strangers you want to make a good impression on. Don’t try to fool them, be open and honest and don’t expect every person who interacts with your business to buy but at least leave them with a good impression of your ethos and intentions. Some people will find their way back to your company when you least expect it if you’ve treated them well and given them an experience that was fun, interesting and acknowledged them as an individual of importance regardless of their consumer status.
  • Be mindful that not everyone can access online content. For example, the visually impaired have a much harder time engaging with online content and social media. And then there are people who simply don’t want to go online or be there for long––this represents a reasonable amount of the community still! Don’t leave these people out of your promotion strategies.
