Microsoft Surface RT

Microsoft’s 10-Q filing shows that total Surface product revenue for last quarter was $853 million, which is less than the $900 million inventory adjustment the company took for Surface RT.

HTC One silver featured

Sales of the HTC One flagship are higher than last year’s model, but HTC needs more than just one hot handset. On Tuesday, the company provided operating margin guidance of 0 to -8 percent in the third quarter on expected revenues of between NT$50 billion an NT$60 billion (US $1.7 billion and US $2 billion). HTC plans to launch “a range of innovative and competitive mid-tier products” in the fourth quarter, which could help it broaden its potential customer base.

Samsung is reportedly launching a version of the Galaxy Note 2 on China Mobile, the largest mobile operator on the planet. The new model will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 chip instead of Samsung’s own silicon. Why? Because China Mobile, which has 740 million subscribers, uses a network comprised of TD-SCDMA, W-CDMA, TDD-LTE, and FDD-LTE technology; a unique mix that Samsung’s own chip currently doesn’t support.
