BBC International iPlayer iPad App to Cost Less Than $10/Month

No comments:



The international version of BBC iPlayer iPad app will cost less than $10/month when it launch later this year, according to a Guardian report.

Director General Mark Thompson spoke at the FT Digital Media & Broadcasting conference in London on Wednesday and said the launch is "definitely this year" and will cost "a small number of dollars per month, definitely fewer than 10".

"We're exploring internationally what the right pricing and models are ... the most important thing is the consumer pricing is right."

Thompson also said he thinks broadcaster, mobile phone companies, and governments should work on a "road map" for mobile television.

"I believe that there's a strong case for the UK's broadcasters, mobile phone operators, Ofcom and government to come together to develop a roadmap for the introduction of mobile TV in this country," Thompson added.

"This would be complementary to the availability of TV content on demand, whether streamed or cached on the device and would enable the public to access time-critical content – news, major sports events and so on – wherever they are."

iPad 2's A5 Processor Has 512MB LPDDR2 RAM??

No comments:



The iPad 2's A5 processor reportedly has 512MB of RAM and uses LPDDR2 memory which is faster than the LPDDR1 RAM used in the first generation iPad, according to Korean semiconductor analyst Kakeun Lee.

AppleInsider reports that Lee made the statements when questioned about the new iPad on Twitter. The site also notes that analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of Concord Securities also told them that the RAM in the iPad 2 would run at a higher clock speed of 1,066MHz for greater memory bandwidth than the 800MHz memory in the iPhone 4.

Apple for some reason has refused to detail the amount of RAM in the device. Once its released on March 11th a teardown will reveal all its specifications.

RIM to Bring BlackBerry Messenger to iOS and Android?!

No comments:



RIM is reportedly planning to bring its BlackBerry Messenger app and service to Android, and eventually to iOS as well, according to multiple BGR sources.

RIM has not yet finalized details surrounding timing or pricing, but we have heard that the company might make the software free to all users. We’re also told strategy is still being developed, however, and RIM may end up charging users a one-time fee or even a recurring fee for access to its BBM service on third-party platforms.

The company is said to be planning the launch of a stripped down version of the BBM software on Android some time this year, possibly without the ability share photos, videos, or location.

RIM chose Android first because of the fact that it could develop and integrate something like this much easier with an open platform, but the plan is to build and deploy an iOS version at some point as well.
