Mobile News – Myntra sales dip 10% in App-only mode, Android M, Android Pay, Lenovo Projection Keyboard and More
This a new section called Weekly. There are lots of Tech News out there. I check a lot of Tech Sites and Blogs. I share with my visitors what I find interesting but it not always possible to share everything. This new section is for that. I will list a few (at least 5 and up to 10) news mostly related to certain topic.
This time the Topic is Mobile, M-Commerce etc. Here are the news that interested me.
- Myntra sales dip 10% in app-only mode, rivals Amazon, Snapdeal, eBay to play safe for now
Myntra.com, India’s largest online fashion retailer, has seen a 10% drop in sales since it shut its website and turned a mobile app-only retailer last week. The company, owned by Flipkart, had factored in such a decline and hoped to return to the level of sales prior to the move in the coming weeks, according to a source.
Its closest rivals, Snapdeal and Amazon, however, said they had no plans to wind up their websites and focus only on mobile phone users.
- Have mobile operating systems stalled out?
For a big part of the Google I/O 2015 keynote, Google showed off Android M, the next iteration of its mobile operating system. Some of the highlights include a new USB Type-C charger, better app permissions, a new Doze mode for better power management, and the advent of Android Pay.
None of the Android announcements left me gobsmacked. While I can appreciate the redesigned photos app and new changes for Google Now, there just wasn’t anything that really surprised me or got me excited.
- In shadow of Android Pay, Google Wallet evolves to stay alive
Remember Google Wallet?
With all the fanfare surrounding Google’s new digital payments system, Android Pay, it’s easy to ignore the fact that Google already launched a different payments system — four years ago — called Google Wallet.
- How to Use Your Smartphone to Easily Send Money to Family and Friends
If you’ve ever tried to split the tab after a meal with friends at a restaurant, you know just how frustrating it can be to try and pay each other back when the establishment imposes a two-card-per-table limit.
Some friends have cash, others are digging through their pockets for quarters, and others “forget to hit the ATM” like they said they would the next day.
- How your smartphone can actually be good for your mental health
When it comes to mental health, technologies such as smartphones and social media networks are almost always discussed in terms of the dangers they pose. Alongside concerns expressed in the media, some experts believe that technology has a role in the rising rates of mental health problems.
However, there is also evidence to suggest your smartphone could actually be good for your mental health.
- Lenovo just announced a phone with built-in projection keyboard. No, really
Say hello to the world’s first laser projection smartphone, the Lenovo Smart Cast. Projection keyboards have always been accessories. Not so with the Smart Cast, which incorporates a built-in Pico projector along with a gesture-based control system.
Transform any surface into a smart display thanks to a built-in kick-stand and variable bracket projector. But it doesn’t stop there, as the gesture-based controls mean you can type or – as we were shown on stage at Lenovo Tech World – play a virtual keyboard in real-time. There appears to be little to little to no latency too, which can be a problem in some accessory systems such as this.
- Tata invests in Xiaomi’s Indian business
Xiaomi has received a capital injection from business tycoon Ratan Tata, who is the company’s first Indian investor. The company announced on its Facebook page that Tata, chairman emeritus of Tata Sons, has invested an undisclosed amount into the Chinese company’s Indian business.
Lei Jun, founder and CEO of Xiaomi, said that Tata’s investment reaffirms the company’s position in the market.
