It’s been a great week at Rogers for announcements, discoveries, and predictions! In this post, we’ll be taking a closer look at the Samsung Galaxy SIII, revealing some of our findings in the latest Rogers Innovation Report, and sharing another great article from ReadWriteWeb on tablets vs. laptops.
Rogers Innovation Report
In an effort to keep our customers educated on some of the latest technology trends, we’re continuing ourseries of Innovation Reports, each compiled into a creative infographic.
Our latest in the series asks: “What Would YOU give up for the Internet?” In it, we examined how Canadian tech users are spending their time on the internet, what they would give up for internet access, and what industries they’d like to see adapting to the internet more. Mobile Syrup focused on the fact that 34% of Canadian tech users claimed they would give up alcohol for the internet, while iPhone in Canada was shocked that some people would actually consider giving up things like bathing, sex and interacting with others!
Internet use and sacrifice seemed to be a hot topic this week. Sociologue also released a similar infographic after their study showed nearly 1 in 4 people would give up sex to keep their mobile phone! Think about it – what would YOU give up?!
Latest Device News
ReadWriteWeb published an interesting article discussing the future of laptops in light of the tablet evolution. In “Tablets Want to Kill Your Laptop,” Forrester Research predicts that tablets will displace laptops and notebooks in as little as 5 years, likening PC’s to “clunky trucks rather than sleek cars.”
If you’re already on the tablet train, you may be looking to upgrade or get a new wireless device next. Another good read is the All Things Mobile in-depth review on the HTC One X after getting to demo it this month. The review examines the phone’s physical construction, user interface, and features.
