OnLive, a company that provides console-quality games streamed over the internet, has announced the launch of its app for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. The OnLive app allows portable device users to play console games that they normally would not have access to.

OnLive calls its service “cloud gaming,” and it offers access to nearly 200 console and PC games without having to install them locally. The company’s servers do all of the hard crunching and processing of the game remotely, and then stream it to users’ devices. This method allows relatively slow mobile devices to play high-end games that usually require much more computing power. Users have the ability to stream the games to their devices over Wi-Fi or 4G LTE cellular networks, though the service will obviously work much better with faster connections.

The company says that over 25 games in its library, including top-tier titles like L.A. Noire, have already been adapted to the touchscreen controls that smartphones and tablets require. The rest of the games can be played with the optional Universal OnLive Wireless Controller that connects to a device over Bluetooth and costs $49.99. The OnLive service has built-in syncing across multiple devices, so users can play a game on their tablet, and then pick up where they left off on their PC with the OnLive PC app.

The OnLive app is available for free in the Android Market now and is expected to hit the iTunes App Store in the near future. The Universal OnLive Wireless Controller is expected to be available in the U.S. and UK in the near future as well. Games can be rented or purchased for play on the service, and OnLive also has subscription options available.


  • Motorola Razr , which was unveiled last month during an event, is set to come to India in this month. A spokesperson of the company who revealed this to The Mobile Indian, however, did not confirm any particular date.
  • Sporting a mere 7.1 mm thickness, Motorola Razr features a dual-core processor and full HD recording capable camera. Most likely the Motorola Razr will be the first 4G LTE supporting Android smartphone for India unless Motorola brings its 3G version. Notably, India will see the 4G LTE roll out sometime next year.
  • Motorola Razr smartphone comes with a massive 4.3 inch Super Amoled display and supports qHD 960×540 pixel resolution. The first of its kind display supporting higher resolution certainly has raised expectations of many. The slim 7.1 mm razor like profile has Kevlar plastic built body to offer stylish and premium look.
  • Under the slim and strong Kevlar body, Razr packs a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor paired with 1 GB RAM. That means hardware is good enough to play your latest Android games and browse the web effortlessly. By default, the Razr will come with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and would be upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich whenever it is released.
  • One of the pain points of Motorola has been the software updates but with recent acquisition by Google, that might be taken care of. Bootloader of this smartphone won’t be unlocked so developers can create some splendid applications.
  • Shutterbugs are in for a treat with 8 megapixel camera with LED flash that will allow recording full 1080p HD video and capture high quality images using the image stabilisation technology. This smartphone also has a front facing HD camera for video calling and chat.

  • Huawei has said that is gearing up to launch its 100G networks in Russia. The company announced that it has finalised agreement with several Russian operators, including Transtelecom, Rostelecom, VimpelCom and Megafon to test and demonstrate the 2000 kilometres ultra-long haul 100G coherent wavelength division multiplexing system at the company’s 100G testing centre in Russia.
  • Huawei has been able to demonstrate that its solution is able to transmit services at 100 gigabits a second services in combination with the existing 10 and 40 gigabit a second services over a regeneration-free transmission distance exceeding 2000 kilometres
  • Using this technology, 100 Gbps signals are more adaptable to fibre transmission. As such, the bandwidth capacity can reach as high as 8 Tbps over a single fibre and the regeneration-free transmission distance is extended.
  • The testing fully demonstrated the enhanced service performance and stability of Huawei’s 100G coherent systems. Huawei was able to show that its service could transmit 100 Gbps services in combination with existing 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps services over a regeneration-free transmission distance of more than 2000 km

  • Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries will soon expand 4G services in India, according to an ET report.  This includes offering 4G enabled data cards and providing tablets at price as low as Rs. 3000. The company plans to start rolling out 4 G services by middle of 2012.
  • RIL is trying to woo the young customers with news games and applivcationa and its dealwith Walt Disney is already in the finals stage. It plans to provide data connectivity with speeds of 50-100 mbps, which is much faster than 3G services currently on offer, at cheaper prices.
  • The report says the company adopted the similar strategy in 2003 also when it succeeded in taking mobile telephony to the masses with its “Monsoon Hungama” handsets at Rs 501, helping it win 1 million customers in just 10 days. Reliance Infocom, the telecom arm of the undivided Reliance Group, began its services on December 28, 2002, the birthday of the group’s founder Dhirubhai Ambani.
  • An industry executive confided in ET that RIL may focus on three to four models, all of which are likely to be priced between Rs 3000 to Rs 8000 and that the entry-level tablets may have Google’s android operating system. Industry executives also confirmed that RIL was not considering UK-based Datawind, which recently launched the world’s cheapest tablet – Aakash – priced at $35 or Rs 1,750 for students with the Indian government sourcing these device at Rs 2,256.

  • Nokia Siemens Networks has launched three new 4G devices at PT Expo Comm in Beijing, China. The devices allow consumers to enjoy broadband access at up to 102 Mbps (Megabits per second) downlink and 51 Mbps uplink to support data-intensive services on TD-LTE (time division-duplex, long term evolution) networks.

 

  • A plug-and-play USB dongle, the Nokia Siemens Networks USB-lte 7210 offers mobile broadband to laptops and compatible tablets whilst on the move. Nokia Siemens Networks CPEi-lte 7212 is a wireless router built for indoor use that provides fixed wireless connectivity to TD-LTE services via WiFi or Ethernet. A further wireless router, Nokia Siemens Networks CPEo-lte 7210, built to withstand the weather and be mounted outdoors, can also provide broadband access. The devices are commercially available to support 4G services using the TD-LTE standard in the 2.3 GHz and 2.6 GHz bands allocated for wireless broadband in many parts of the globe.

 

  • The availability of compatible devices in the market can be a significant factor in the uptake of a new wireless technology. By providing devices directly, we allow our customers to offer complete broadband packages to consumers, which in turn would speed up the adoption of new 4G services,” said Ken Riordan, head of devices at Nokia Siemens Networks.

  • The LTE network offers speeds exceeding 100 MB/s and is particularly effective when utilising large amounts of data, such as watching high definition movies, playing online multiplayer games, using social applications and utilising other bandwidth-intensive applications. For the LTE network, more than 700 base stations have been renovated and equipped to provide 4G services in the country.

 

  • Etisalat plans to establish up to 1,000 fully operational base stations by the end of this year.
