Weekly Poll: Is a 3D Phone in Your Future?

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Related Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#mobile#Poll sarah perez But while 3D may be gimmicky, it can be fun, too – especially for gamers. Plus, lets not forget the bragging rights it entitles you to: “Oh your phone runs apps? Well mine runs 3D apps!” That has to count for something, right?So what do you think, 3D or no 3D? Would you buy a 3D smartphone to get access to this new futuristic feature? Let us know in this week’s ReadWriteMobile poll.center_img What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Apple may be considering adding a 3D photo capabilities to a future iPhone, according to this recently uncovered patent application. Of course, Apple patents many things, so you can’t take this as confirmation of a forthcoming iPhone feature. That said, there are some 3D-enabled smartphones arriving on the market ahead of any potential dual-camera equipped iPhone. Most notably, the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint and the LG Optimus 3D, now known as the AT&T Thrill 4G.But for all the sizzle that a 3D smartphone can deliver, is this something consumers actually want? Do you want one?These early 3D phones are impressive, considering how few years have passed between the flip-to-open clamshell devices and the dual-core, 1+ GHz, high-res, app-running modern marvels we have today. But experience-wise, 3D still has a way to go before it’s an ideal interaction on a small screen.Viewing angles are narrow – you have to hold the phone just right in order to enjoy the 3D effects – so forget crowding around the smartphone to share a 3D video with friends. It’s a one-person show for now. There’s also a general lack of commercial content in 3D, although that may change in time. And then there are the headaches.

Rural slump to slow FMCG growth to 1112 in 2019

first_imgMumbai: The fast-moving consumer goods industry is likely to grow at a slower pace of 11-12 percent in 2019, almost 2 percentage points lower than in 2018, primarily driven by the steeply falling rural demand due to the lingering farm distress, says a report. The industry is also expected to grow at 12-13 percent in the June quarter, market research agency Nielsen said in a report Wednesday. The sector grew at 13.6 percent in the first quarter.

More importantly, the second half will see more strain leading to high single-digit growth, it said. The volume growth which peaked in 2018 to 11 percent is expected to be healthy but lower at 8.5-9.5 percent in 2019, the report added. It said this is not surprising as similar fall is seen in the economy as a whole which grew at a lower 6.6 percent in the December quarter, against an expected 6.8 percent.

Historically, rural markets has been growing 3-5 percentage points faster than their urban counterparts and the recent slowdown in rural growth has brought growth rate closer to the urban level, the report added. The overall drop witnessed in rural growth is majorly driven by slowdown in packaged food category, it noted.last_img read more
