What you need to know

  • Nothing is gearing up to launch as many as five new products.
  • Rumors suggest the company is also developing its first Android phone.
  • The company launched its first true wireless earbuds earlier this year.

Carl Pei's consumer technology startup Nothing is working on over five new products, according to a report from India Today. The information was revealed by Manu Sharma, vice president and general manager, Nothing India.

Speaking to the publication, Manu Sharma said:

For our way forward, our mission is to build for the future. We are speeding up very rapidly in terms of building a pipeline of products, we already have five products in development that we are speeding up to meet our mission of launching iconic products and we are excited about that.

Sharma also told the publication that the ear (1) wireless earphones are doing "extremely well." India is currently the biggest contributor to ear (1) sales. The company is said to have shipped 180,000 ear (1) units globally so far.

As per a recent report from Counterpoint Research, Nothing is already among the top three brands in India's premium TWS market. In the first quarter of its launch, Nothing held 7% of the premium TWS segment in India.

Unfortunately, the executive did not reveal any details about the upcoming products. However, it was reported last month that Nothing plans to launch its first smartphone sometime early next year. The company is also tipped to be working on a new power bank, which could be launched before the end of the year.

Carl Pei founded Nothing in October last year, shortly after leaving OnePlus. The company launched the ear (1) in July this year to take on the best wireless earbuds on the market. The earbuds offer premium features such as active noise cancellation and wireless charging support at just $99.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
