The following infographic presents some interesting facts based on the characteristics of smartphone users:



Are we addicted to smartphones?


Your smartphone is just a device made to ease your daily life. You are human, and you invented it. You are the mastermind! Do not let a machine control you!
According to a survey conducted by ASSOCHAM in 2013, Indian e-commerce space grew by nearly 85%. The market's worth went up to $16 billion in 2013, which is expected to touch a whopping $56 billion by 2023. It is all possible because of the rising income of an average Indian consumer, growing internet penetration, and introduction of various payment options. Believe me, this is just the beginning of what could revolutionize the retail industry. Sooner or later, the e-commerce industry will eat up the maximum share of the Brick and Mortar business.

DealGuru - an e-commerce portal to buy and sell


Recent announcements by Flipkart and Amazon just add to the buzz of e-commerce. All this has been possible because of the risk taking abilities of entrepreneurs. Askmebazaar is one such example of entrepreneurship, you might have seen Ranbir Kapoor in various avatars promoting this website. It is an open portal where you can search for everything you want. DealGuru is a section in Askmebazaar.

What is DealGuru?


DealGuru is dedicated to deals, deals and just deals!! The doubt which may rise now is that why a website like Askmebazaar would need a section which is dedicated to deals, when you can use the whole website for it. Well, let me clear your confusion. DealGuru makes your job easier when you are looking for an older stock which is now not available in the market.

How does it work?


In today's world, everything is so dynamic that if something is available for sale today might be discontinued a week later. But, it is not always the case that the complete stock is sold out; stores still have some inventory left. This is where DealGuru enters. They visit such stores and try to set a deal for the remaining stocks at ground breaking prices. After making an agreement, they put it on sale on the website. Buyers visit the page and buy the products at pocket-friendly prices.


Can I buy/sell here?


Yes! Anyone who has access to internet can become the buyer, or the seller as per the requirements. The website charges a small amount as transaction charges.


Is the website trustworthy?


If you trust 
Kangana Ranaut, you can trust them as well. You can find her on TV endorsing the website.

As far as the concept behind this e-commerce portal is concerned, it appears to create a win-win situation for all. The manufacturer (or the seller) gets rid of the old stock, while the buyer somehow manages to buy the product which is unavailable in the market. But we'll have to wait and watch if it is able to make a dent in the fast-growing Indian e-commerce space.
Samsung Electronics today announced the launch of the NX mini, the world's slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera in India which will be available exclusively through Amazon India, as part of a strategic partnership.

"This shift in our strategy is created to meet the needs of our customers who are constantly looking for the best in technology. We understand the buying patterns of our consumers and are constantly strengthening our network to cater to their evolving needs. This offering through Amazon.in will enhance accessibility for the NX mini camera,"
said Mr. Asim Warsi, Vice President, Mobile & IT, Samsung India.
"We are very excited to be the strategic partner for Samsung's Digital Imaging Category in India. We are the fastest growing e-commerce platform in the country today and this partnership is a validation of the faith customers and sellers place on our brand. This partnership gives us the opportunity to forge deeper engagement with photography enthusiasts across the country and aligns with our vision of offering customers in India the widest selection at low prices, fast and reliable delivery and a trustworthy shopping experience,"
said Mr. Samir Kumar, Director, Category Management, Amazon India.

The latest addition to the NX series, this smart camera sports a portable and stylish design and offers stunning image quality which makes it the perfect 'go-to' camera for capturing special moments. This power packed camera with a 1 inch sensor and innovative features like Wink Shot and Baby Monitor, also boasts of NFC and Wi-Fi capabilities that allow sharing of images on a real-time basis. It is also the world's slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera.

"The NX mini is an exceptional offering for today's trendsetters looking for both style and functionality in their cameras. The portability adds to the ease of capturing and sharing special moments instantly. Designed to cater to customer demands, the NX Mini is equipped with features such as the 3.0-inch Flip-up Display and wide angle lens, which makes it a perfect camera for selfies,"
added Mr. Warsi.

This camera is the ultimate way to capture life on the go without any hassle. Sporting an ultra slim (22.5mm) design, the camera can easily slip into almost any pocket or bag, yet still deliver the powerful results that passionate photographers demand. The camera features a solid premium metal body with a luxurious leathery finish, making it a natural choice for style-conscious photographers looking to make a statement. Available in five different colors (white, black, brown, green and pink) in India, users can choose the color that best suits their style.

Samsung NX Mini - perfect for selfies


Reflecting the recent consumer trend of selfies, this camera has a range of exclusive features which allow photographers to effortlessly indulge in this global trend of self-shooting. With a Flip up and Touch Display that flips 180-degrees and an ultra-slim wide angle lens, users can frame images of themselves perfectly, capture group shots from an arm'
s length away and easily be a part of those. Its powerful optical performance delivers high quality images that are crisp and clear, ensuring that subjects in them are always looking their best.

Maintaining a flattering pose while attempting to press the shutter release button when self-shooting can be tricky, but the new Wink Shot feature makes it the perfect hands-free way to capture the real you. Users simply need to set up their shot and wink at the camera to capture an image. Once a wink is detected, the camera takes a shot automatically after one second, without users having to press any buttons. 

Despite its slim appearance, the camera packs big performance in its small body. Its large sensor enables users to capture high quality images, ensuring no details are missed. With its high resolution, pictures captured burst with vivid color.

The impressively fast Continuous Shot mode allows photographers to take continuous shots. The fast shutter speed freezes fast moving scenes, enabling the dramatic capture of motion in crisp detail without blurring.

Share on-the-go with Samsung NX Mini


The camera features advanced WiFi and NFC integration that makes image sharing seamless. Exclusive to Samsung, Tag & Go connectivity allows the device to pair with NFC-enabled devices, such as smartphones or tablets, simply by touching the two together.

Additionally, extensive storage options are integrated into this camera and images can be uploaded directly from the camera to the cloud for an easy storage solution. Users can also upload their pictures directly to both Dropbox and Flickr, the popular photo sharing site.

Technology has touched our daily lives to such an extent that each one of us wants to own a smartphone as well as a wearable device. But our budgets are limited! What if I told you that you can buy both in the price of one? Or rather you can buy a device that can act as a smartphone, and can also be worn around the wrist if need be? Yes, you heard it right! 91mobiles.com, India's gadget research website for mobile phones and personal technology, has come up with the Google Nexus 360 concept phone, a creative visualization that offers a glimpse into the future of smartphones, imagining how these devices will evolve in the coming years. The idea is to showcase a concept that pushes the envelope when it comes to what is possible, but is still rooted in reality, and can become commercially viable in just 3-4 years down the lane.

Google Nexus 360 front and rear


Key issues at hand


1. With the flood of mobile computing devices, users now prefer carrying a single device that can take on multiple roles and adapt as per needs.


2. Wearable technology is evolving rapidly, but the approach is still very fragmented since most existing products can't be used standalone.

3. Device security and multiple notifications.


The approach behind Google Nexus 360


The idea then, was to come up with a concept of a single device that can tackle all the above issues in one shot. For this purpose, the team factored in user suggestions, studied various prototypes and innovative technologies (from the likes of Molex, Dai Nippon Printing, Solicore and LG), to come up with an ideal yet achievable concept. This design is an amalgamation of several successful smartphones and technologies that exist today, and takes their use to the next level.

Watch the following video to know more about this awesome concept:




Google Nexus 360 features 


A phone that converts into a watch



Google Nexus 360 can convert into a watch

Use it as a conventional phone, or wear it as a wristband; with the full range of features available in both modes.

Flexible yet scratch resistant materials are currently available in prototype phase from Dai-Nippon printing, and utilize flexible circuitry that has been around for years thanks to brands like Molex who specialize in creating flexible circuits for devices we use today.

Flexible polymer OLED display



Offers great usability and vibrant visuals. Earlier seen on the LG G-Flex smartphone; is being mass produced by LG Electronics for global consumption.

Embedded Bluetooth headset

Can be docked on the side of the device, and draws power from it for charging. Indian mobile device maker Micromax first came up with the idea of an embedded Bluetooth headset and offered it with the Van Gogh feature phone.

An integrated fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor



Take care of security, health monitoring and sleep tracking. Integrated sensors and apps capture related data.

A tube camera that's on your wrist

Makes shooting easy, and allows snapping pics from different angles. The same high-resolution camera doubles up as primary camera, along with shooting selfies.

Always-on e-ink display on the side

Makes sure users don't miss out on notifications; a feature adopted by Notion Ink for their Adam tablet.

Designed for all-weather use



IP67-certified for resistance to the elements.

Why Google?


The Google brand was chosen for this concept since the search titan has always been at the forefront of innovation, and has the flexibility to partner with a specific hardware manufacturer that can build according to its specification.

"We are very excited to launch Women's Line Series in India, which is especially Fine Tuned and Engineered for Women, that would legitimately improve the audio experience for our female consumer,"

3. Women experience tension more often in music than men.

Fit Studies outcome


1. Women on average have smaller heads and ears than men.

2. Women are more sensitive to higher clamping pressures.

3. Women have smaller ear canals than men.


Skullcandy engineers worked tirelessly to perfect acoustics, headband fit as well as earbud size and shape for women.

Fine-tuned and engineered for women, the line is complimented by premium fabrics and materialization. Floral prints, rose gold finishes, and subtle stud embellishments are bold fashion-forward aesthetics that add a feminine edge to the predominantly unisex category, and are a reflection of female consumers and their unique style and perspective.

The South Korean electronics giant Samsung has decided to take Apple head on. Keeping that in mind, it has decided to launch its most powerful tablet ever - the Galaxy Tab S. It is expected to give a tough fight to the iPad Air. In terms of specifications, the device features a super AMOLED display, powered by 1.9 GHz Exynos 5420 quad-core processor with a 3 GB RAM, and has different options in terms of screen size, storage models and bearer model type. One comes with a 10.5 inch screen, while the other is equipped with a 8.4 inch display. Both these variants are either Wi-Fi only, or both Wi-Fi and 2G/3G, so that you can stay connected even on-the-go. The internal storage is either 16 GB or 32 GB. It runs on Android 4.4 with Samsung's skin, The TouchWiz UI, and packs 7,900 mAh battery.

What is attractive about the device is its thickness, or I would rather say its 'thinness'. The company claims that it is Samsung's thinnest and lightest tablet yet! At a first glance, the device looks elegant due to its rounded corners. It comes in 2 color variants - Titanium Bronze and Dazzling White.

The tablet features a super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2500x1600 pixels, and has a pixel density of 288 ppi. It has two capacitive buttons for Back and Task Manager. It also has a physical button in between these buttons, which is not only the Home button, but also acts as the fingerprint sensor. All of these buttons are placed just below the display, in the center of the longer edge.  Additionally, there is a 2.1 MP front-facing camera lens located above the display, just opposite to the side where buttons are located. Beside the camera is the Samsung branding.
