Apple has sold 2.8 million Apple Watches in the U.S. since putting their fancy-schmancy smartwatch on the market just two months ago, this according to the e-mail receipt tracking company Slice. The company's report also says that 17% of those buying the wrist adornment are shelling out for an extra watch band, too, giving the Cupertino timepiece producer a nice double-dip into the cash reserves of their beloved customers. The sales figures for Apple Watch are said to put the timekeeping device at the definitive forefront of the smartwatch market, well ahead of Samsung (which... Read more...
Surging demand for Samsung's new Galaxy S6 Edge has led the company to ramp up production of their new curved screen smartphone, with the early opening of their A3 production line. Though originally set to come online in June, the A3 plant — the third that the company now has in place for making OLED displays — will help Samsung to increase production of the Galaxy S6 Edge by 150%, from the current 2 million to 5 million units produced monthly.  Since its worldwide release on April 10th, the demand for Samsung's latest iterations of its flagship smartphone has exceeded even...

Seasons, even in the world of technology, come and go. Lately, Apple has been in a season of change, with quite a few executives moving around, retiring, or otherwise being replaced over the past couple of years. None of that movement has caused any negativity for the brand itself, and we don't expect the latest move to reverse the trend. Zane Rowe, who has served as Apple's head of North American sales, will depart the company soon to be replaced by Doug Beck. Presently, Mr. Beck looks after sales in Japan and South Korea. Essentially, Beck's role is expanding to now encompass the huge North American... Read more...
As of a month or so ago, Microsoft had sold around 4 million Xbox One consoles globally. Sony's PlayStation 4, which launched right around the same time pre-Christmas last year, has gone on to sell over 6 million units. Announced today, Sony has said that it's latest and greatest console/home entertainment unit has sold 6 million units globally, with software sales nearing the 14 million mark. To be frank, those are impressive numbers for both companies, but Sony's decision to undercut the Xbox One by $100 seems to have helped out in the ever-present race to outsell the other. It's a stark change... Read more...
For months on end, the Xbox 360 outsold every other major game console on store shelves. But then, the next-generation war began, pitting the Xbox One against the PlayStation 4 and the WiiU. My, how the tables have turned. The NPD Group's latest research report shows that in January 2014, the PS4 outsold the Xbox One, and by a health 2-to-1 margin. A Sony spokesperson stated that demand has remained "incredibly strong" for the PS4 console, even after the holidays, making it the number one next-gen console to kick off 2014. Not surprisingly, he was quite proud to "nearly double" the sales of the... Read more...
Believe it or not, it's earning seasons again, and a company that always seems to make things interesting in this regard is Amazon. While it's stock price is soaring, the past few quarters have shown tremendous revenue with next to no profit. This quarter, however, Amazon didn't manage to make a dime. While Q3 2013 sales were up 24% to $17.09 billion, and operating cash flow increased 48% to $4.98 billion, pure profit was down. All told, Amazon posted a net loss of $41 million in Q3, but in some ways, it's actually being viewed as a positive. Why? Because last Q3 the company posted a loss of $274... Read more...
10 million is a nice, round number. And if you sell 10 million units of anything, you've certainly earned yourself a pat on the back. Earlier this year, LG announced that it had sold 10 million LTE-enabled phones across all of its lines, but that's still not as spectacular as Samsung selling 10 million Galaxy S3 units in under two months. But now, even that record is looking a little shoddy. The Galaxy S4 has soared to 10 million sales in the first month of it going on sale. After launching April 27th, Samsung has seemingly had little issue finding folks who want to upgrade. The Galaxy S4 sets... Read more...
Ouch. There just aren't too many other ways to say it. As the video game world enters a period of rapid transition, the old players are starting to show signs of wear. The home console market just isn't what it used to be, and neither is the importance of physical media and retail shops. As more and more gamers find their fix in mobile gaming, it's getting tougher for the mainstays to remain relevant. GameStop is a company in search of its next move, and it's losing a lot of money as it tries to find it. The company's Q4 2012 earnings saw a loss of $270 million, on sales of $3.56 billion. Consolidated... Read more...
Much like it's possible to sue for anything these days, it's apparently not all that difficult to patent anything. While that's something of a stretch, Amazon has just nailed a surprisingly broad patent that could have an impact on the consumer electronics economy as a whole. At its most basic level, the patent -- which was awarded in the United States -- details a "secondary market for digital objects." Specifically, the verbiage makes reference to an "electronic marketplace for used digital objects," which would include things like e-books, audio, video, computer applications, etc. Here's a quote...

Each year, it seems as if Amazon outdoes itself in terms of holiday sales. As brick-and-mortar stores lose their luster, traffic becomes more annoying, and fuel prices continue to soar, kicking back and handling holiday shopping online just seems entirely more reasonable. And evidently, Amazon has become a role model for every other online e-tailer to follow. A recent survey has cited Amazon as the best, most preferred place for shopping online, while JC Penney suffered the largest fall in customer satisfaction of any major online retailer. Up-and-coming flash sites like Gilt.com and RueLaLa.com... Read more...
AT&T is enjoying record sales of smartphones this quarter. As a result, the wireless carrier could exceed expectations for smartphone sales for the entire year. While speaking at an investor conference, Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T's mobility arm, said AT&T has already sold 6.4 million smartphones in the first two months of the current quarter. As a result, de la Vega expects to sell 26 million smartphones this year. If this holds true, AT&T will sell 1 million more smartphones than initially expected. "What we're seeing is tremendous response in the marketplace," de la Vega said.... Read more...
What if you sold 40 million of something in a month? If you're Microsoft, that's not just a hypothetical question. With Windows 8 on store shelves for just over a month now, the company has today announced that 40 million licenses have been sold, up from four million that it announced four days after launch. Yes, it has a long ways to go to catch Windows 7, which reached the 600,000,000 mark in June, but according to Microsoft, sales of Win8 are outpacing sales of Win7 when looking at a similar time table. Curiously, Microsoft has still yet to comment on sales of the Surface tablet, which likely... Read more...
It's no secret that Samsung's GALAXY S III smartphone is a hot phone. Today, Samsung announced the phone has reached a record 20 million in sales in just 100 days. The phone originally made its debut in May 2012. With this record, the GALAXY S III has become the most successful smartphone Samsung has released to date. As you may recall, the GALAXY S III features a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen (1280x720), a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB RAM, 16 GB or 32 GB of internal memory, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, and a 2100 mAh Lithium Ion battery....

There's no shortage of competition in the smartphone market. While Samsung and Apple may be two of the top manufacturers, there are plenty of other big-name players that are posting very respectable numbers. LG recently announced it has sold more than five million LTE smartphones worldwide. Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that LG sold one million smartphones in the month of July alone. LG currently offers more than 10 LTE smartphones in the US, Korea, Japan, and parts of Europe and Asia. LG's Optimus LTE smartphone is one of the company's most popular smartphones, having sold more than... Read more...
