    Well, I dunno. Russia is apparently easier to do business in than China, mixed with lower Ruble value means nearly as cheap so technically the production only makes sense to have it in Russia. But these companies goes the easy way and use an OEM producer to make it for them.

    That said, Kraftway would technically be able to do it, same with Sitronics. Actually, Sitronics makes phones already but older models. Shouldnt be hard to work on new ones.

    Rusnano wont get involved at all in this market, and Rostec I dont think will either unless already through an existing entity. Technically, Russia has it all to do it at home. But for some reason, no one is actually willing to do it. Maybe they will all expect someone else to do it.

    But I think the government needs to put a tender for a locally produced, secured smartphone production and winner gets funding plus the huge contract for all government agencies.

You think Russians, let alone anyone else, wanna pay close to $800 - $1000 CAD for a phone? That is how much they were charging for it.

    Other Russian brands (rebranded or not) are selling very well as I have mentioned.  Your question makes no sense since Lada was known for poor quality yet for almost 4 or more years Lada Granta was best selling car in Russia.

    Nokia was a good brand selling solid phones. Hence why they sold so well. Now they are almost going extinct as they are failing the smartphone market quite hard.  It difficult to compete to the Chibese.

    I actually highly praise Nokia Windows Phone based smartphones myself, i have mostly great experience with them. However partially issue is Android that took so big part of non professonal market, professonals very often go for Windows or iOS but common users are like...gief more Android.

    So Rostec only had 25% shares in 2014 in Yota Devices and then ended up with 26.1% after this sale. Recently Yota devices was hailed as a good import substitutor according to CNews.ru but you can now effectively scratch that off the list of import substitutor. Majority of the company was private.  Question is, why didnt Rostec buy majority shares? Were they not interested? Maybe the company plan wasnt sufficient?  It was said to be a poor sale. So I think I am sticking to that theory.

    Hopefully in the future someone will make a brand of Russian phones using Baikal processor and make it cheap enough for average Russian.

    Should Russian state make it more difficult for private Russian businessmen to sell their assets to foreign buyers? Some kind of a tax maybe?

    Naa. It would end up stirring more crap than solving issues.

    I think with the creation of Rostec is absolutely brilliant and has shown its competence and capabilities. What I think is if the company is worth it, that Rostec buys controlling share (50%+1 share) just so it can have main ownership. I think the outcome here was what I have been saying. Some commentors on cnews stated this was smart as the yotaphone was already Chinese as it was all built in China and was no different than any other Russian brand phone. And instead, this will simply allow Yota phobes to become significantly cheaper and more profitable as it apparently was not under its previous owner (whom is still mdin general director after the sale). So it will still have Russian roots and still have Russian input. But mainly Chibese owned. Oh well. There will be others I expect.

    With all this talk, here is other news:

    http://rostec.ru/news/4517363

    Seems Rostec decided to save the company NPO Lightning which is the company who made the Buran and control systems. It was undergoing bankruptcy for quite some time so Rostec I suppose took control of the company (through shares or what, I do not know). Good to hear. They seem to have the knowhow while Rostec has the financial sources and ties to other industries.

    Sepheronx and kvs will love this, BRICS nations to cooperate in creating 5G communications:

    ...And here's the really juicy part:

    The technical idea behind the G5 standard is to use for wideband mobile access the millimeter wave frequencies over 24 GHz, allowing to achieve transmission speeds over 10 Gbits/s, in other words, ten times faster than optical fiber connections allow for.

    5G will give you internet speeds of 10 Gbits/s, which basically is 1.25 gigabytes per second, that's simply amazing! thumbsup

    Only seems natural. Much like what George1 posted regarding China looking to participate with Russia in microprocessor development.  But I would wager that Brazil should be either left out or questioned about its position.

    Indeed Brazil should be left out of any major technology project.  
    Ditched no only SU-35 but Pak-fa too for a Saab Gripen..and now critisize Russia for Syria role.
    they are too dependent on US Business to become an real independent nation.
    Russia should really push forward ,as if their lives depend on it..in  a semiconductor
    revolution in Russia as much as they did with their Space Revolution in the 70s.. and Become very strong on it.. To create a real alternative for Intel/Amd.For consumers civilian use and business. Processors very fast in media and graphics. Shocked And join venture with India and CHina in semiconductor industry will be a must. There is lot of talent in Asia for programming. Somewhere i read Microsoft hires many hindus programmers. And in entertainment industry Russia should really look at China and South Korea. Skorea is very strong in the last one. But China also is very strong when it comes to artist. Many American and European companies of entertainment are using a LOT ,Chinesse digital graphics studios to produce assets for their games.  All those pretty environment that you see in games done in the west ,with large cities..etc..very likely were done by China art studios. the same is true for Hollywood. Visual effects are outsourced a lot to China because can do all and more cheap hiring their graphics studios.

    Oh i Russia truly needs to work on a new Internet.. Not that i complain of the one already exist.
    But the problem is that Russia cannot depend on an internet that is controlled by American companies. and spy on their citizens. and use social media they control like facebook to organize protest. The new internet should promote world wide wireless coverage and if..
    if possible offer the service for very low cost or free with the purchase of a Russia-CHina -India personal computer or smartphone produced by them.

    Comments:
    Compared to MS office 365, this one is a little expensive, around $90-$100 after conversion.  But apparently it is cloud based and will always have backup and access to the cloud servers.  I don't know if this is a 1 time fee vs MS office 365 which is a per year subscription.  So if you know, please provide the details.

    Edit: I figured it out.  It is an annual fee.

    The head of Rostec showed Putin YotaPad. device encryption calls and other Russian novelties
    http://www.sdelanounas.ru/blogs/71191/

    Based on the tablet PC YotaPad. with two screens (the successor to the YotaPhone, which has one display color, and the second is based on an electronic ink), the specialists of "Rostec" has developed an electronic textbook. About commercial version of the gadget talked about in the beginning of 2015, but in the sale it has not yet appeared. According to Mr Chemezov, the color screen of the tutorial you can use for entries and drawing, black and white – read literature and work with certified Russian textbooks. To get online with the device will not work – it connects only to the local network of the school, although the possibility of remote work.

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 11 Baab5c


    Chemezov also showed Putin the computer-stick, which can connect any display (including a TV or touch screen) and the mouse and keyboard. The head of "Rosteh" is not specified, what are its characteristics, but assured the President that power miniature computer is not inferior to traditional.

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 11 E7f59c

    Bracelet for military

    The gadget that is included with the program of weapons of the servicemen of the "Warrior" was also presented to the President. The device includes GLONASS module to determine the location of the fighter and sensors health indicators.

    The bracelet comes in tablet commander, who is subordinate to the fighter. It can detect a soldier and to give him first aid when wounded or find the body in case of death. Smart wristband, according to Mr Chemezov, can be used for civilian purposes, as well as hours. For example, the gadget will allow you to track the status of people who were discharged from the hospital – in this case, the data will be transferred on the tablet of the doctor in real time.
    A scrambler for secure communications

    To ensure the security of voice communication engineers "Rosteh" created encoder, which works in conjunction with the YotaPhone. The device connects to the smartphone via Bluetooth.

    To provide secure communication requires that both parties must have the encoders. The phone conversation can be at a distance of 10 metres from the gadget.

    Chemezov emphasized that the device will cost 150-200 dollars (12-15 thousand). When you start the gadget into mass production (for special forces and for civilian purposes) the price of the encoder is reduced.

    Finally, Chemezov added that the specialists of "Rostec" has created several other innovative solutions, in particular, unmanned KAMAZ big and powerful microscope. However, the dimensions of the devices are not allowed to take them to a meeting with the President.

    Russian Scientist and Team Create Microchip to Replace Laser

    A team of Swiss and Russian physicists have developed a new microchip that can replace the use of complex laser equipment in everything from atomic clocks to telecommunications.

    A scientist from Moscow State University and his colleagues created a chip that can replace a complex laser system, the press service of Moscow State University said on Friday.

    "A group of Russian and Swiss physicists created a chip that generates femtosecond pulses of light with a special frequency spectrum called an optical comb, that is, to do what was possible to achieve only with large and complex laser systems," the university said in a statement.

    The femtosecond optical comb is an invention, which appeared in the late 1990s, which proved popular in a variety of areas, from telecommunication systems to laser spectroscopy and astrophysics. In 2005, the inventors, Theodor Hänsch of Germany and John Hall from the United States, received the Nobel Prize for it. A femtosecond is one millionth of one billionth of a second.

    "To create such combs, lasers with mode locking were used. In this method a laser emits light; however, rather than a single frequency, as is customary to think of lasers, [it uses] several 'modes,' light rays with multiple frequencies. If these modes are synchronized, that is, their phases are tightly linked, then as a result of interference of these modes a continuous laser beam is transformed into a sequence of pulses with the spectrum of a 'comb,'" the press service added.

    To create such combs Physics, Moscow State University and Russian Quantum Center suggested the use of "solitons," or compactly packed waves similar to an electromagnetic tsunami, which behave like particles.

    "The difference, of course, is great. If the mode-locked lasers to generate pulses use sophisticated optical devices, media and special mirrors, we get the same stable pulses in a simple passive resonators embedded in a microchip and having a size not more than 100-200 microns "- said one of the co-authors of the article, Russian Professor Faculty of Physics Mikhail Gorodetsky.

    According to the scientist, the quality of the combs also changed. They are now able to reduce the duration of the pulses from 100-200 to 30 femtoseconds, which not only reduces the size, complexity and cost of generators combs, but in addition, opens up new horizons for the use of modes, "unattainable by other methods."

    Very very accurate clocks is the key component to accurate navigation systems, whether on GLONASS satellites or in receivers.

    Siberian scientists have grown diamonds for photonic computers

    A team of researchers from the Institute of Geology and Mineralogy SB RAS for the first time in the world managed to grow synthetic diamonds for photonic computers. The new generation of computing devices, wherein a qualitatively new level of performance, should replace the traditional electronics. This explains Tass.

    According to Director of IGM SB RAS Nikolai Pokhilenko, this year the staff of the Institute learned to grow artificial diamonds Ge defect centers. Such crystals are important components of so-called photonic computers. After Russian researchers have mastered this technology, American and German research centers.

    Defective called any diamonds that are in its composition have an admixture of other elements other than carbon. Unlike conventional synthetic diamonds a new type of crystal has its center in place of carbon atoms of germanium. Such diamonds allow the use of the physical properties of photons to transfer large amounts of data.

    His discovery of IGM SB RAS employees have already transferred their colleagues from the Institute of Semiconductor Physics and the Institute of Automation and Electrometry SB RAS to use them to work on the experimental setup.

    It is expected that photonic computers are faster than their current semiconductor "brothers" of about 10 million times. This performance, according to experts, already allows for the creation of artificial intelligence. Nikolai Pokhilenko compared the performance of two types of computers with the speed of movement of the snail and of supersonic missiles.

    Another distinctive feature of the new generation of computing devices based on photons is their ability to withstand high temperatures. It is considered that the photonic computer will maintain its performance at a temperature of from 0 to 900 ºC.

    Earlier Portal Science Russia wrote about the prospects for the use of diamonds to create quantum computers.

    I think it is a translation error. Behind Russia is Germany and America producing similar technology but with Russia producing the crystal first.

    I don't really know if Germany or US is actually really funding research in photons use in semiconductors as there is really not much talk about it from them compared to Russia.

    Yep, it is an translation error, sorry. I often use translators to read Russian sites.

    I guess that it means exactly what sepheronx said. After Russians mastered this technology, Americans and Germans followed in their steps.

    Russian Scientists May Have Solved One of the Major Barriers to Light-Based Computers

    A new cooling method opens a door to optical chips far faster than today’s electronic ones.


    High-performance microprocessors that harness photons rather than electrons promise to make computers up to a thousand times more efficient because electrons typically move at a low fraction of the speed of light. Problem: scaling down conventional electronic microprocessors is easy; doing the same with photonic components is hard because of the difficulty of getting light to turn corners. So scientists have turned to plasmonic components, which take advantage of the unique oscillating interactions of photons and electrons on the surface of metal.

    Unfortunately, plasmonic components get too hot and you can’t just throw a fan on them. You need a cooling system that works on the scale of the photonic chip’s key features, less than a billionth of a meter in size. It’s one reason why many don’t consider fully light-based transistors a practical possibility for decades. It’s also why there is such excitement around a new paper by a team of Russian researchers showing a new method for cooling photonic components.

    Optoelectronics are already emerging as a key research area for companies like Oracle and IBM. IBM’s Zurich-based photonics research group explains why: “Based on the current trend toward ever more powerful high-end computers, it is expected that supercomputers comprising nearly 100 million computation modules and featuring exaflop performance rates, i.e. one trillion (1018) operations per second, will be developed within that timeframe. Without improved energy efficiency on all levels, however, a future supercomputer would require its own dedicated power plant.”

    It’s no wonder the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, has also funded optoelectronic research.

    What’s so hard about scaling down optoelectronic components? In order for your on-chip optoelectronic components to work with bulk light waves, it would have to be enormous, which destroys the efficiency gain you were going for. You can confine light to smaller dimensions by converting it into surface plasmon polaritons, electromagnetic waves that propagate on the surface of a the chip’s metal and dielectric layers. But these can cause overheating, a lot of overheating: temperature increases of 100 Kelvin, a big enough temperature differential to take frozen water to boiling. The Russian researchers claim that their method, published this week in the journal ACS Photonics, can limit temperature increases to within just a few degrees K.

    Such components “will give a possibility to create high-performance computers and analyze information many orders of magnitude faster than it is done today. However, in order to design computers based on these microprocessors (ranging from onboard computer for fighter aircrafts to exascale and zettascale supercomputers, which are required for data analysis and simulation of combat situations), the microprocessors should be efficiently cooled,”

    Getting back to that retarded Bloomberg Innovation Index. I cannot find anywhere a proper description of how
    it is calculated. Bloomberg documents only the following:


    Methodology

    Bloomberg ranked countries and sovereigns based on their overall ability to innovate and identified the top 50. Six equally weighted metrics were considered and their scores combined to provide an overall score for each country from zero to 100.

    1. Research & Development: Research and development expenditure as a percentage of GDP

    2. Manufacturing: Manufacturing value-added per capita

    3. High-tech companies: Number of domestically domiciled high-tech public companies—such as aerospace and defense, biotechnology, hardware, software, semiconductors, Internet software and services, and renewable energy companies -- as a share of world's total high-tech public companies

    4. Postsecondary education: Number of secondary graduates enrolled in postsecondary institutions as a percentage of cohort; percentage of labor force with tertiary degrees; annual science and engineering graduates as a percentage of the labor force and as a percentage of total tertiary graduates

    5. Research personnel: Professionals, including Ph.D. students, engaged in R&D per 1 million population

    6. Patents: Resident utility patent filings per 1 million population and per $1 million of R&D spent; utility patents granted as a percentage of world total

    Of the more than 200 countries and sovereigns evaluated, 69 had data for all six metrics. Postsecondary education and patent activity consisted of multiple factors that were weighted equally. Weights were rescaled for countries with some but not all of the factors in those two metrics. The ranking shows only those countries included in the top 50. Most recent data available were used.

    Ranking sources: Bloomberg, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, World Intellectual Property Organization, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

    Other sources: Samsung, Swiss Federal Statistical Office and Unified Patents

    The above is not enough information as to how they actually determine the index. There is no formula for the index itself. If
    the metrics are all of equal weight and in percent and the index is in percent, then that means that South Korea spends over
    90% of its GDP on R&D. This is obviously total rubbish. What is the actual percentage in each category? For example, a
    5% of GDP on R&D, gives 100% in the innovation index corresponding to that category and the index is just a simple mean
    of all the categories (in percent).

    I see this piece of crap being cited by RT and every media outlet known to man and not a single question is asked as to how
    this nonsense was derived and why Bloomberg's choice of methodology gives a reasonable ranking in the first place. For example,
    a country can be top of the world in innovation if all it does is produce consumer crap. There is no accounting for the qualitative
    aspects of technology and one category for "high tech" is not enough since TVs are "high tech".

    Weird but Russia Deployable Anti-Tank HE Missile Rounds Combat Simulation .If the Russians could actually get this to work then this would be devastating,but one question. Why would they use American C-5's as the deployment vehicle and then have Russian tanks as the aggressor force? dunno






    Done some digging, name of the guy is Dahir Semenov. An enthusiast, even patents his bizarre creations lol1
