BlackBerry Announces Smartphone below $200

Blackberry has announced a lower end Z3 smartphone, code named “Jakarta” to be launched very first in Indonesia after which it will move to other markets. The low end phone comes as a part of BlackBerry’s strategy of maintaining and further building on its comparatively strong market share position in the emerging markets. The Smartphone is expected to go on sale in Indonesia by April.

John Chen, who took over as the group’s chief executive late last year intends to focus more on the BlackBerry’s profitable services segment, the one which helps large government and corporate clients in securing and managing mobile devices on their internal networks. He admitted that BlackBerry’s operating system in terms of security worked best, especially in government sector & regulated industries like the banking and telecom.

There was a time once when smart phones were available only to business executives or government officials & that was a time BlackBerry cashed into this segment. But now with Smartphones becoming commonplace, more and more people choose to bring their own Smartphones to work. Very few companies are now issuing BlackBerry’s to all their employees.

Chen is driving the strategy of moving away from the failed consumer centric marketing and refocusing on large business customers, thus intending to occupy 30% of the enterprise market. BlackBerry isn’t really giving up on the consumer segment of the market but looking for a way to balance the two sides.

Backed up by this strategy, the Z3 Smartphone presents itself as a ‘work-centric’ budget phone that can be used for personal use as well. Let’s take a look at what all features this phone offers:

~ All touch, 5.0 inch screen (540x 960 p) with a pixel density of 220 PPI

~ Dual Core 1200 MHz Cortex A7 processor

~ Operating on BlackBerry 10.2.1 Operating System

~ Internal Storage of 8 GB

~ 1.5 GB RAM

~ Rear Camera of 5Mega Pixels

~ Front Camera of 1.1 Mega Pixels

The features that actually sell the Z3 Smartphone out to businesses are:

~The BlackBerry Hub feature is a one point stop for users to access not only their work email, but also their personal emails, social network, Calendars, BBM messages, networking upgrades etc.

~ BlackBerry Keyboard studies your usage of words and offers it back to you so as to facilitate faster and accurate typing. For the Indonesian model, the keyboard offers the best Bahasa typing experience on touchscreen including multiple-language support. This feature allows the user to type in upto 3 languages at a time

~ Story Maker feature aids in creating a collection of photos or videos together, clubbed with music and sound effects to produce HD movies that can be instantly shared on YouTube

~ Instant preview feature allows users to be faster in their response time by providing previews that bring BBM or SMS or even emails to users, irrespective of whatever the user is doing on the smartphone

~ BlackBerry 10 browser is incredibly fast with responsive scrolling, zooming and it’s the industry benchmark for html5 performance on all smartphones.

~ Easy Sharing feature in this smartphone keeps a track of the files you share, with whom you share so as to save the time that goes into saving or sharing of documents. This feature just gets smarter with every share.

This smartphone has been created completely with a business angle and is being offered at a low budget price of less than 200$. Only time will tell if BlackBerry’s strategy proves fruitful in improving its market share or not. But this smartphone is surely going to make a bang when it appears in Indonesia this April.

From easiest to the most difficult language to learn

To learn a second language requires a great deal of commitment and tolerance. Whichever language you are planning to learn needs your attention, and your internal level of interest and passion makes it easy or hard. However, to learn English can be easy of any of us coz this is considered as a global language and we all know how to speak in English more or less.

leanguage-teacher

Still there are some factors that make it easy or tough to learn a second language, like vocabulary, grammar and vowels and consonants. Here is a list from some of the simplest to hardest languages to learn.

Spanish

Spanish is supposed to be one of the simple language to learn because its every word is written phonetically. The language is vowel-heavy and easy to pronounce for non-speakers. Spanish has also had a major impact on modern English, particularly in the US. As a result, many Spanish words sound similar to their English counterparts. So to learn Spanish is considered to be the easy one.

Italian

We can say as Spanish is influenced by English, the Italian dialect sets the standard for all of the Romance languages (including Spanish, French, Portuguese and Romanian). Italian has remained significantly same as its origin. Italian alphabet has 21 letters only.

French

French has more verb tenses than English, and has grammatical gender too. So if you’ve studied a language such as Spanish or German, you’ll already have some preparations that will help you learn French. If not, then you’ll make lots of mistakes at first. But don’t let yourself discourage. You will ultimately get it by practice, and over time you’ll begin to see a connection in grammatical structure between English and French.

Japanese

The Japanese language system is divided into three different categories. Kanji characters (Chinese origin) are logographic, which means they depict particular words or morphemes (such as prefixes and suffixes). The other two groups, hiragana (native Japanese) and katakana (non-Chinese foreign origin) depict letter sounds or syllables and contain fewer characters, but many of them have multiple pronunciations. More so, words are not separated with spaces from line to line. Tryreadingthissententenceandyouwillgettheidea.

Arabic

Learning a second language might be tricky, but some foreign language systems match with English. But Arabic uses alphabets that are consist of various consonants and very few vowels that are tough to pronounce.

Chinese

This language is considered to be one of the hardest languages to master completely. It doesn’t have an alphabetical system like Japanese or Korean, so each word has to be learned separately and it can take a long time. But the grammar is ferociously straightforward and there are some instability. A few signs in the kanji – Japanese language, is borrowed from the Chinese so there’ll be a few little word you’ll understand.

Always remember that everyone is different in the world so thus their priorities and understanding & grasping level. The ability of learning a new language can also vary from person to person. Motivation and the exposure to the language also have a positive effect in the process of language attainment. Also remember that if a language is ranked as difficult, it does not mean that they are impossible to learn. Even there are chances that it is not hard for you at all.
