Smartphones are still the dominant mobile device, according to Good. About three times as many iPhones are activated as iPads, for example. And the split on the Android side is even greater around 10 to 1 in favor of phones over tablets. When it comes to tablets overall, its still an iPad world in the land of business: Goods data shows that of all enterprises using tablets, 90 percent of those are iPads. Partly because of that, the overall dip for iOS device activations likely isnt troubling Apple.

The phone has been consistently leaked and talked about over the last two months, generating the kind of attention reserved for proper flagships. As we started to expect though, the Alpha is not a flagship at all, despite its slick looks. First things first we should discuss the design and build of the Alpha. It has been well documented that the handset would be Samsung's first made from metal, but anybody expecting an all clad device like the HTC One will be disappointed. Instead, Samsung has used a metal frame that can be seen along the edges of the phone, making it look like an iPhone at a glance. Around the back is the company's faux leather plastic, but nevertheless the Alpha exudes a certain high end appeal.

Google?s mysterious new Nexus phone reportedly spotted in new benchmark - Yahoo News
Its tempting to pity the wearables makers, http://www.androidsentral.com tasked with crafting not only serviceable, but also fashionable hardware, in an unproven market. Yes, one could pity the initial batch of Android Wear hardware partners: LG, Samsung, and Motorola . Certainly their Android smartphone experiences suggest they are up to the former, but the latter is undeniably a challenge. Look no further than Samungs tacky faux-leather Galaxy casing , or Motorolas garish and severe Droid branding for proof. Yes, it would be tempting to pity them if their smartwatches didnt cost a few hundred dollars a pop at launch for what many view as a superfluous class of device. We are talking real money in an immature market that could just as easily be punchline this time next year.
