Android Has A Hardware Fragmentation Problem Too

Source: https://intelligence.businessinsider.com/welcome

Android’s fragmentation problem isn’t just a software issue; it has a hardware problem, too. Android has hardware fragmentation because it supports a slew of handsets from a number of manufacturers. As of September, the most popular screen size and density for Android phones accounted for about half of the market, with the balance taken by nine other screen sizes and densities.       

This too can make developing on Android a headache because developers must prepare their app for a range of screen sizes. Compare this to the iPhone, which until last week always had the same screen size.

Monster and Beats Electronics discontinue partnership, audiophiles rejoice

Color us surprised, but word on the street is that Monster and Beats By Dr. Dre are soon going to be a thing of the past. After years of pumping out fashion-forward, bass and treble pumping headphones that (debatably) changed the landscape of personal audio products — and spawned a slew of imitators — both companies have reportedly decided not to renew their five-year contract. Businessweek notes that two sources have confirmed that disagreements over “revenue share” and “who deserved the most credit for the line’s success” stemmed the decision between the companies — not surprisingly, Beats Electronics wanted more of both.

In the the followup, Monster will pump eight new headphone lineups featuring due out this year, Monster is also noted to have brought in 60% of its own revenue from Beats by Dre, and now plans to shift its focus on older demographics, such as executive types, which the brand never exactly catered to. Notably, Businessweek also states that Beats Electronics will retain to the rights to the headphone’s iconic design, sound-signature and branding. Considering Beats’ partnerships reign far with companies like HP and HTC, things probably won’t be all doom and gloom for the company — but the amount of time left to pick up your very own JustBeats likely just got slim. Hit up the source link below for more details.
