Yet samsung has a display with similar pixel density(320ish) as iPhone(330ish) on their phones!! iPad display density is even lower at ~260. I guess the reason they havent had such a display is that Android drains battery quickly(my Galaxy s3 drains to 20% in like 12-15 hours)

When technical humor is done right it is just hilarious. Well done, my friend. Well done.

What a timing for the tear-down analysis.

You're making a big deal out of OS design - something that is already amortized over many iPhone/iPad/iMac and etc sold. we should talk about the cost of the phone.

Does the hybrid touch screen has any special technology inbuilt to work with the passive pen.

And there you go–once you get past the (potentially-infringing) Apple elements, one is left with a market dynamic for Android tablets analogous to that of Windows desktop/laptop PCs. As an Android (and iOS) developer, one can only focus on limited subsets of hardware for design, testing and evaluation–Samsung remains the best hardware of the lot.

@kinnar- that is a big part of the attraction of the Android OS, isn't it? The counterargument is that in a sense all Android phones and tablets are largely the same, which is another reason that Samsung may have difficulty maintaining its selling prices.

The higher margin is straight away can be figured out as Samsung was not to invest much on the OS design and development only driver compatibility with Android was the software part for Samsung where as IOS is totally design developed and maintained by Apple. So Samsung could had thought of entering into market with less profit margin covering high volume.

@eewiz- thanks for weighing in. I didn't realize that they had sold so few tablets in the U.S. I think, as IHS iSuppli points out, whether or not Samsung can maintain the selling price is very iffy.

"if Samsung can maintain its target selling prices" Its a huge if Dylan. Add to that, samsung sold only 200K tabs till now in US. @joepaiii Not every rectangular touch screen device violates Apple patents. All most all touch screen phones/tablets from NOKIA/RIM/HTC are rectangular.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
