    Advantage or headache? Apple watch and your business

    Business Spectator
    When the smartphone first took off, it promised to put information in the palm of your hand. Now the release of Apple’s smartwatch makes the same information available at the flick of the wrist. Smartwatches have been available for some time, but none capture the imagination quite like Apple’s offering. Interest in the device and its capabilities transcends its consumer uses with businesses beginning to wonder if, or how, this technology will fit into the enterprise. Businesses will have to learn to cope with the surge in the number of wearable devices accessing enterprise resources, and how to turn them into a competitive advantage.

    Talk of plans to create next Apple just marketing hype

    The South China Morning Post
    Most Chinese technology industry leaders say they want to create the "Apple of China", or beat top US e-commerce site Amazon in just a few years. But Rome wasn't built in a day. Even though we are now in a era of fast-developing internet technology, claims that companies can beat Apple or Amazon just by simply launching a bunch of similar products and services at lower prices sounds highly unlikely. Take the smartphone business in China. It's more about how to make quick profits than how to beat Apple's iconic iPhone in terms of new breakthrough technologies.

    The Apple watch is on fire

    Business Insider
    Apple's new smartwatch has sold more than 2.3 million units since pre-ordering began, leading Business Insider to venture that the Cupertino-based firm "has essentially cornered the smartwatch market". According to analysts at Canalys, devices using the competing Android Wear software sold 720,000 units in 2014 – fewer than the number of Apple watches sold on the product's first day of sales, say researchers at Slice. The sales advantage will likely transfer into a software advantage, says Business Insider, as developers scrample to develop apps for Apple's watch at the expense of Android-based competitors. Apple shares closed Wednesday at $126.87, up 0.36%.

    First we take Delhi: China's version of Apple goes global

    The Australian Financial Review
    China's fast-growing technology company Xiaomi recently sold 2.11 million handsets in just 12 hours. The buying frenzy also included fitness watches, wi-fi units and smart TVs, and netted the company more than 2 billion yuan and plenty of publicity. From just a start-up five years ago, Xiaomi is now China's biggest smartphone maker and third largest in the world, behind Samsung and Apple. And Xiaomi is taking its strategy global, first to big developing countries such as India, Indonesia and Brazi, where its low price give it an advantage. Later this month, Xioami will hold the global launch for its next smartphone in New Delhi.
