Researchers Tout Battery Breakthrough
Samsung Postpones Tizen Phone
Verizon Throttling Data Speeds
Zillow Buys Trulia for $3.5 Billion
China To Call Qualcomm a Monopoly
Stanford researchers have found a way to use lithium in a battery's anode, a breakthrough that could triple capacity and has been described as the "holy grail of battery science."
The possibility that the Tizen operating system can survive is dropping. So the scheduled third-quarter launch in Russia of the Samsung Z smartphone, which is designed for the mobile OS, is being postponed.
In what could be an opportunity for competing wireless carriers, Verizon is throttling data speeds on unlimited 4G plans because of more consumer demand for high-speed data networks.
Real estate website operator Zillow is buying rival Trulia in a $3.5 billion deal that would make the biggest player in the online real estate market as well as a titan of listings available on smartphones.
After an investigation, regulators in China have concluded that Qualcomm, one of the biggest makers of chips used in mobile devices, has a monopoly, a government newspaper reported.
