I was watching the iPhone 6 launch last night and was wonder what the fuss is all about? Well it’s from Apple and people may be drooling.

Lets find out how the iPhone 6 compares with the Leading Android phones. I am only comparing the specifications and features and not the actually quality which is very subjective.

Here is Apple iPhone vs Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Xiaomi MI3. Galaxy S5 and One M8 are the premium Android phones while the MI3 is the poor man’s option or the rich mans budget phone which ever way you look at it.

As you can see the Android variants are leading in almost all the specifications which does matter. This includes the inexpensive Xiaomi Rather than innovating, Apple seems to only playing catch-up. Apply skillfully hides the finer specifications. Its your choice to stand in the queue for iPhone 6 or go with an Android at a cheaper price.

Apple may be considering switching from Intel processors to ARM chips used in iPhones and iPads for its range of Mac personal computers, said a media report. Published in Bloomberg, the report cited three anonymous sources who said Apple believes that the processors used in its mobile devices will be robust enough to power its line of computers. Intel chips have been used in Mac computers since 2005, while ARM’s processors have been used in iPhones and iPads since their respective launches in 2007 and 2010.

I have been quotes in this article.

Apple released a feature of its Mac OS named LaunchPad. LaunchPad is a development, bug tracking platform of Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu. Canonical doesn’t seem to have deep pockets to sue Apple over the usage of name LaunchPad. Canonical’s Prakash Advani told our editor that “We are glad Apple likes our brand name! The purpose of Canonical’s Launchpad.net and Apple’s Launch pad are different, hence non-competing.” No surprises two years from now Apple sues Canonical over LaunchPad.

A while back, my friend Ramnath forwarded me this interesting flow chart, It holds true for iPad and may apply to many of our wants [not needs].

A few people who owned iPads, [althought many would not admit], were finding their iPad had diminishing marignal utility. After a few days of use, they were not find much utility for it.

Are tablets good computing devices or just for browsing and viewing? Are tablets going to replace the netbook? Well lets wait to have more tablet options based on Android platform. In fact Android team says Android is not designed for Tablets and Android 3.0 expected by end of the year, is expected is suppose to be tablet ready.

To all the people rushing to buy an iPad, you should know that Apple makes as much as 52% profit margin on the iPad. The devil is in the details.

BOM (Bill of Material) for iPad.

16GB iPad with WiFI costs US$270 which retails for $499. The margins go up further if you add a 3G Module or high capacity.

Here is the link for a detailed breakup.

Expect other vendors to launch products to compete with iPad with more aggressive pricing.

Marvell has already announced a $99 tablet!
