Smartphones and tablets remain the growth engine of the high-tech sector

The market for consumer electronics hopes to rebound this year, but it is mostly mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets that will take their game, according to an inventory compiled sector Sunday.

Global spending phones, TVs and other computing devices expected to grow by 4% to $ 1,100 billion, estimated the industry association and CEA research firm GFK, two days before the opening in Las Vegas the annual exhibition sector International CES.

In 2012, they had retreated 1% sealed in particular the sluggish economy in developed countries where expenditure more or less stagnate (1% on average, and even 1% in Western Europe).

The growth will be driven by emerging markets, particularly in Asia, which would see their costs increase by 9% to $ 490 billion (44% of the world).

If the global rebound looks overall "modest", some segments of the market are "explosive," noted Steve Bambridge, an analyst from GFK, during a press conference.

"Tablets and smartphones dominate the landscape of consumer electronics regardless of where you look in the world," said Steve Koenig, an analyst at CEA. In emerging countries, sales benefit the wider range available, including less expensive models.But this enthusiasm is partly at the expense of other products: the consumer will for example not to buy another TV and opt instead for a tablet, or go camera because it believes that the smartphone is enough the case."It is true that there is some measure of cannibalization" of other market segments, "but these innovative products have also helped to transform the market and accelerate its growth," said Mr. Bambridge.Shawn Dubravac, another analyst of the ECA, and noticed that under the influence of tablets including the design notebooks, which had changed very little over the last twenty years, was changing.For him, one of the trends that should emerge from CES, it is "the different forms taken by the computer," with "experiments" manufacturers offering hybrid devices between your computer and tablet screens that can rotate , turn ..."We are entering the era of post-smartphone", also predicts Mr. Dubravac which says that the phone is less to call and increasingly to other uses.As the tablet, it becomes more and more an interface for uses beyond the simple communication, with a bunch of applications and services that develop around, and that the ESC should be a showcase.In the area of ​​health, for example, several exhibitors plan to present for devices that are voltage or pulse of the user, and then automatically transmit data to a mobile application.

Seems, Samsung is again readying a big launch for the month of May. The company which unveiled its flagship smartphone Galaxy S3 in May last year, is reportedly launching its successor Samsung Galaxy S IV in May 2013.

The speculations have been fuelled by a post from Samsung Lebanon on Facebook saying that the upcoming Galaxy S IV will not launch before May 2014. Facebook user Anthony Ghattas posted a question on Samsung Lebanon's page on the social networking website, asking, "Hey, is there any news for the Samsung Galaxy S4 release?" The reply he received from the company was "The Galaxy SIV won't be released before May 2013."

The current flagship model, Galaxy S III, was launched in May 2012, giving the device a full year before it is replaced as the top-of-the-line smartphone in the company's portfolio. Before that, Galaxy S and Galaxy S II were rolled out in June 2010 and April 2011, respectively.

Sammobile, a tech blog, has also revealed leaked press shots of the Galaxy S IV. The blog noticed that "the device will use on-screen buttons as there is no home-button present on the device, the bezel around the device is much thinner and the device features a large display."

The image, which the blog claims to have got from a Samsung insider, if authentic, exhibits that the company has continued with the design style introduced in Galaxy S III in the upcoming model. The smartphone, in the image, looks like a longer version of Galaxy S III, much like Galaxy Premier.

Rumours say that the upcoming flagship will have a 4.99-inch SuperAMOLED touchscreen with 441ppi pixel density. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the display of the device will be unbreakable, while rumours also suggest that it will also be bendable. Speculations are also rife that the device will be powered by a 2GHz quad-core processor and sport a 13MP camera on the back.

Youtube: Flash back to Pakistan

Platform for the exchange of the most popular videos on the Web, which is the subject of an outright blocking from the Pakistani government since September 2012, was again available on Saturday from some users.

It is estimated that the temporary availability range from 3 minutes to 3 hours depending on various reports of local news organizations

To recap, the blocking of the site occurred following the refusal of Google to remove a video posted on the platform where the Prophet Muhammad was the subject of ridicule.

YouTube has been completely banned in Pakistan since September 17 following the protest movement in the Middle East caused by the release of the film "innocent Muslims."

The temporary return of the platform to the Pakistani network is the result of a lack of coordination of government as explained by the Minister of Interior Rehman Malik on Twitter. Pakistan wanted to lift the ban on YouTube, but eventually recanted after having found no change in hosting the video deemed offensive.

Pakistan is not his first blockade of the Internet, similar cases having occurred in 2008 with a clip of a Dutch legislator, but also in 2010 on a Facebook page featuring illustrations of the prophet considered inappropriate.
