Android Phones, Info and Apps

TAG | Tablets

Android tablets are becoming more famous day by day with majority of the apps having screen adjustment options. For the minorities, in future Google will release an update which will allow users to adjust the screen size for all applications in compatibility mode.

Any app which did not have the option to resize their screens will have a bar to adjust the screen to your own choice. Stretch to full screen is the old and the present option in all the apps, Zoom to full screen will be the new option in the bar which will maximize the video according to the screen size.

When your phone uses this newer screen compatibility mode, it’ll no longer fit the image to the screen instead it’ll zoom it in for you to check it clearly. The ratio of zooming will be up to 200% and the zoomed image will be even more pixilated because the new feature will not take data from any other resource for zooming, except from your media file. In cases where the screen does not properly resize, this feature will increase the usability of the app by improving the phone’s style and outlook.

Most of the apps which do not feature screen compatibility mode look fine because of the different styles and themes offered by the app in tabs. It is to keep in mind that screen compatibility mode will only run directly with android version of 3.0 or greater. The earlier versions do not declare the large screen option first, the system will itself give you an option to resize screen.

Android has taken the world by storm but not the US. The US market is quite lukewarm towards Android Smartphones and the response of the market towards Android tablets is even poorer. It’s the iPhone which is predominant in the USA. Popular manufactures like Motorola and Samsung have not sold many Android tablets in the US, on the other hand Apple has sold over 25 million iPads (most of them in the US). Although we see that the response of the rest of the world is very good toward Android tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab has actually had amazing sales and has become a craze.

The recent announcements of Dell are going to make it even more difficult for Android in the US. According to a recent interview of John Thode the vice president of Dell with CNET, the American market is not yet ready for Android, this system has been quotes as ‘ahead of its time’ for the US. For many reasons Dell has decided to launch its’ first 10-inch Android tablet, the Streak 10 Pro, in China. This summer launch is expected to be real big, but the US consumers will have to wait for this product till the end of the year. This is another disappointment of Android in the USA.

Dell has decide to see the response of the market in China for its forth coming product, as the Chinese market will very soon be the worlds largest tablet market. Here people are savvier to new technology.
