iPhone OS 3.1 이 업뎃 되면 나타난다는 AR어플리케이션입니다.

 

 

9월이면 현재 정식 등록 절차 밟는 어플 2종 + more가 앱스토어에 등재될 것 확실합니다. 

그리고 동시에 9월에 카메라가 달린 iPod touch가 나오면 아이폰 / 아이팟에서 모두 사용가능하겠죠 .  

시장 파급 효과는 굉장히 클 것입니다. 일단 매우 신기한 것이기에... 흠 

 

참고로 등록 될 것으로 예측되는 어플들을 소개합니다.  

AR은 누누히 말하지만 H/W 싸움이 아니라 벌써 컨텐츠와 UI 싸움입니다.

AdMob (시장 조사 전문 기관)에서 iPhone과 iPod Touch의 예상 판매대수를 내 놓았습니다. (~'09.06)

약 4,500만 대가 팔린 것으로 추정하는데 한국 시장의 터치 판매량은 예상과 좀 다르군요

예전 기사에서 50만대 정도라고 추정하는 것을 보았는데 여기선 20만대가 안 됩니다.

뭐.. 대세에 영향을 많이 주는 수치는 아니구요.


어제 삼성동 애플샵에 들렀다가 깜딱 놀랐습니다.

정말 사람이 많더군요. 애플샵이 언제 이렇게 대중화 되었을까 하는 생각마저 들었습니다.

저에겐 성지나 마찬가지인 곳이라 주중에 종종 들렀었는데 늘 한가했었거든요.


주말 오후 시간 애플샵을 보면서 아... 한국에서도 이젠 확실히 먹히기 시작하는구나 했습니다.. 흠

Where in the world are those 18.6 million iPod touches?

Posted by Philip Elmer-DeWitt

AdMob iPhone vs. iPod touch bar graphApple (AAPL), for reasons known only to itself, does not report the number of iPod touches it has sold.

But it lets you do the math, and on Tuesday COO Tim Cook casually mentioned, in response to a question about the App Store, that the total installed base of iPhones (26.4 million) plus iPod touches (X) is now 45 million.

So where are those 18.6 million iPod touches?

Nearly 12 million are in the United States, according to a report on the geographical distribution of Apple mobile devices issued Thursday morning by AdMob, the leading mobile ad platform. That makes sense, given that Americans buy the lion’s share of all Apple handsets, and the company has been particularly aggressive about marketing the iPod touch to U.S. students in its back-to-school computer sales.

But if you look at AdMob’s region-by-region breakdown, the iPod touch is surprisingly popular overseas.

In Latin America, for example, the ratio of iPhones to iPod touches is virtually identical to North America’s. Apple has sold more than 327,000 in Mexico alone, according to AdMob’s estimates, which apparently is more than the total number of iPhones sold in that country.

iPod touches are even more popular in Canada. According to AdMob, Canadians have purchased more than 1.36 million iPod touches but only 805,594 iPhones.

iPod touch sales are also strong, relative to iPhone sales, in Oceania, Asia and Western Europe. The device is less popular in Africa and least popular in Eastern Europe.

Wordwide, according to AdMob, the ratio of iPhones to iPod touches on its network in June was roughly 2 to 1. In other words, iPhones represented 68% of Apple handsets and the iPod touch made up the other 32%. This ratio has remained constant over the last several months, according to AdMob, implying a similar growth rate for both devices worldwide.

Below: AdMob’s country-by-country iPod touch sales estimates, obtained by multiplying AdMob user shares in each country by the total number of iPod touches sold.

Here’s the comparable chart for iPhones.

AdMob describes itself as the world’s largest mobile advertising platform, serving banner and text link ads on mobile web pages for more than 7,000 publishers. It collects handset and operator data on each of the nearly 95 billion ads it has served since 2006, which enables it to produce charts like these.

일본에서 재미난 제품이 나왔습니다.

바로 microSD card + WiFi module!!

                                                          [출처 : k-tai.impress]

뭐.. 엄밀히 말하면 data storage 역할을 못한다고 하니

microSD 처럼 생긱 Wi-Fi 카드라고 할까요?

Eye-fi 를 모방한 것처럼 보이기도 하지만

쓰임새가 휴대폰 용으로 확장되었다는 점에서 주목할 만합니다.

가격은 3 ~ 4 만원 정도가 될 거라고 하네요.


WiFi 장착이 별로 되지 않은 한국에선 아주 쓸만한 제품이 되지 않을까용?

【WIRELESS JAPAN 2009】
KDDI、無線LAN対応microSDカードを参考出品


 KDDIブースでは、参考出品として、無線LAN対応対応のmicroSDカードが展示された。

 今回参考出品された「携帯電話向けmicroSD 無線LANカード」は、IEEE802.11b/gに準拠の無線LAN機能をmicroSDカードサイズにしたもの。ミツミ電機製とルネサステクノロジ製の2つが展示された。

 auの2009年夏モデルでは、東芝製のCDMA 1X WIN端末「biblio」において無線LAN機能を提供している。会場の説明員によれば、今回microSDカード化された無線チップはbiblioに搭載されたものと同じという。なお、商用化および商品化時期は未定。開発側としては、エンドユーザー向けを想定したものだという。価格についても明言はさけられたが、2000~3000円程度ではないかと話していた。

 なお、無線LANカードは、新バージョンのKCP+に対応している。カード自体に無線LANのアンテナが搭載されているため、バッテリーの内側にmicroSDカードを搭載するタイプの携帯電話などではアンテナゲインがとれない場合があるという。

 biblioなどと同様に、自宅の無線LAN環境やフリースポットなどでの利用が想定されている。より大容量なコンテンツを楽しんだり、コンテンツのまとめ買いなどに向いているという。データの転送速度は最大54Mbpsと、いわゆる無線LANと同等の性能となるが、ストリーミング配信は端末スペックの面で現状では厳しいとしていた。なお、無線LANカードにはメモリカードとしての機能はない。メモリカード兼無線LANカードとするのは物理的に難しいとのこと。

애플이 중국에 저항하지 않는 것은 막강한 물량 때문이겠죠.

중국의 WAPI 기준에 부합되지 않기에 WiFi를 s/w 적으로 죽이기만 해도 되겠지만

적극적으로 아예 모듈을 덜어 내는 것은 백기 들었다고 봐야죠..

허허허..


참고로 중국은 Wi-Fi를 돌릴려면 대륙의 기준인 WAPI를 만족해야 합니다.

중국은 뭐든 대륙의 기준이 남다릅니다.

wireless DTV, Mobile TV, Wi-Fi 등등 모조리..

내수 규모가 왠만한 권역 규모와 맞먹는 다는 것은 정말 엄청난 것입니다.


Report: ‘Crippled’ iPhone coming to China in September

Posted by Philip Elmer-DeWitt

iphone-china-unicom-112

China Unicom and Apple (
AAPL) have reportedly signed an agreement to launch a specially-built version of the iPhone in China, perhaps as early as September.

The report, published Friday by China Business Network, credits Hon Hai — the world’s largest manufacturer of electronics components and Apple’s long-time partner — with helping broker the deal.

Under its terms, Hon Hai — using its tradename Foxconn — will build a special version of the iPhone for the Chinese market with Wi-Fi disabled, allowing Apple to get around Beijing’s restrictions on handsets with high-speed Internet capability.

“I believe we are at the beginning stages of a mobile revolution,” says iPhonAsia editor Dan Butterfield, who explored the implications of the deal Friday in a long Q&A with China’s Mobinode.tv (see below).

There were several independent reports last week that Hon Hai is already manufacturing the crippled iPhones — code named “model 90″ — and that the China Telecommunication Technology Labs have begun mandatory testing.

Such tests are required by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and usually take at least a month, which is why the phone is not expected to reach Chinese consumers much before September.

In his Mobinode Q&A, Butterfield draws a picture the size and nature of the potential market:

“There are over 700 million wireless consumers in China. The majority are youthful, status conscious, and they want to own cool smartphones loaded with the latest apps/games and mobile technologies that allow them to interact with one another.

“While incomes are lower in China compared to western markets, China still has tremendous consuming power. There are an estimated 340,000 millionaires in China and there is also a growing middle-class. An estimated 290 million Chinese households can be classified as middle-class with monthly incomes ranging from 5,000 CNY to 15,000 CNY ($732 to $2,196 USD). Chinese tend to save a relatively high share of their monthly take home pay. Rainy day savings can sometimes be spent on more expensive items, particularly if the product has status and is used every day … think iPhone.

“All of this adds up to a tremendous potential market for Apple’s iPhone. Using conservative estimates, I believe Apple can capture a full 2% share of the wireless market in China within the first 12 months of an official iPhone launch. That’s 14 million iPhones and perhaps another 2 million or so coming via grey-market iPhone sales.”

오..

간만에 정말 삼성에서 재미있는 광고를 기획했네요.

기존에 휴대폰들 광고는 정말 식상했는데

카메라 쪽은 생각이 많이 깨어 있다고 봅니다.

잼나네요,

즐감 ^________________^
