Ubuntu llega a la telefonía, con una interfaz espléndidamente refinada y con una capacidad completa para PC cuando se acopla a ésta

Canonical anunció hoy una exclusiva interfaz para teléfonos inteligentes para su popular sistema operativo, Ubuntu, que utiliza los cuatro bordes de la pantalla para una experiencia de mayor inmersión. Ubuntu ofrece de manera excepcional a los OEM de teléfonos y a operadores móviles la posibilidad de concentrar teléfonos, las PC y clientes ligeros en un súper móvil de una sola empresa.

“Esperamos que Ubuntu sea popular en el mercado empresarial, permitiendo suministrar a los clientes un dispositivo único y seguro para todas las funciones de PC, de cliente ligero y de teléfono. Ubuntu es ya el Linux Enterprise Desktop más utilizado, con clientes en una amplia gama de sectores enfocados en la seguridad, los costos y la capacidad de gestión”, dijo Jane Silber, Directora Ejecutiva de Canonical. “También vemos una oportunidad en teléfonos inteligentes básicos que se utilizan para telefonía, SMS, web y correo electrónico, donde Ubuntu tiene un mejor rendimiento gracias a sus aplicaciones centrales nativas y a su elegante presentación.”

Ubuntu está dirigido a dos segmentos móviles primordiales: Los súper móviles de alta tecnología, y los teléfonos inteligentes de nivel básico, ayudando a los operadores a acrecentar el uso de datos de los consumidores que normalmente sólo utilizan el teléfono y la mensajería, pero que podrían abarcar el uso de la web y del correo electrónico en su teléfono. Ubuntu también es atractivo para los que aspiran a ser consumidores experimentados que quieren una experiencia fresca con un desempeño más rápido y sofisticado, en un dispositivo con un menor costo de materiales.

La interfaz de teléfono para Ubuntu introduce experiencias particulares para el usuario nuevo del mercado móvil, incluyendo:

1. Edge magic: gestos del pulgar en los cuatro bordes de la pantalla que permiten a los usuarios encontrar contenido y cambiar entre aplicaciones más rápido que otros teléfonos.

2. Inmersión profunda en contenido - los controles aparecen sólo cuando el usuario los necesita.

3. Una atractiva búsqueda global para aplicaciones, contenidos y productos

4. Comandos de voz y texto en cualquier aplicación para un acceso más rápido a capacidades sofisticadas

5. Aplicaciones nativas y de web o de HTML5

6. Gráficos personalizados cambiantes en la pantalla de bienvenida.

Ubuntu ofrece opciones convincentes de personalización para partner apps, contenidos y servicios. Los operadores y los fabricantes de equipos originales pueden agregar fácilmente ofertas de su propia marca. El servicio personal en la nube de Canonical, Ubuntu One, proporciona servicios de almacenamiento y de medios de comunicación, intercambio de archivos y un servicio de transacción segura que permite a los socios a integrar sus propias ofertas de servicios con facilidad.

Canonical facilita el desarrollo de teléfonos con Ubuntu. La compañía proporciona servicios de ingeniería para aliviar la complejidad de mantener múltiples bases de código que ha demostrado ser un problema común para los fabricantes de teléfonos inteligentes, liberando al fabricante para que se enfoque en el diseño del hardware y en la integración. Para los proveedores de silicio, Ubuntu es compatible con el paquete de apoyo para la tarjeta (BSP) típico de Android. Esto significa que Ubuntu está listo para ejecutarse en los diseños más económicos de chipsets.

Al llevar Ubuntu a los teléfonos, Canonical se posiciona de manera exclusiva con un sistema operativo único para el cliente, el servidor y la nube, y una familia unificada de interfaces para el teléfono, la PC y el televisor. “Estamos definiendo una nueva era de convergencia de la tecnología, con un sistema operativo unificado que da sustento a la computación en la nube, a los centros de datos, a las computadoras y a la electrónica de consumo”, dice Mark Shuttleworth, fundador de Ubuntu y Vicepresidente de Productos Canonical.

Canonical atiende actualmente a los fabricantes líderes de PCs: ASUS, Dell, HP y Lenovo, certifican la mayoría de sus PC con Ubuntu y lo preinstalan en los mercados globales. Más de 20 millones de PC de escritorio ejecutan hoy en día este SO, y Canonical estima que cerca del 10% de las nuevas computadoras portátiles y de escritorio en todo el mundo serán entregadas con Ubuntu en 2014. Ubuntu es también muy popular como una plataforma de servidor, el SO de servidores número uno en las principales nubes públicas y el principal SO de servidor para OpenStack, la IAAS de código abierto.

Comentarios textuales de apoyo

Peter Winston, Director Ejecutivo de Integrated Computer Solutions, Inc. (ICS):

“Casi todos los teléfonos modernos tienen una gran cantidad de componentes de código abierto, sólo era cuestión de tiempo para que alguien creara un teléfono de código abierto puro, sin ninguna restricción. Un verdadero reproductor de código abierto tiene la oportunidad de ser un actor importante en los mercados emergentes, así como con las personas que ya están comprometidos con el código abierto. Es realmente emocionante ver a Ubuntu entrar en el mercado de la telefonía.”

Mark Shuttleworth, fundador de Ubuntu y Vicepresidente de Productos de Canonical:

“Estamos forjando al futuro de la computación personal. Ubuntu se ha consolidado en las computadoras de escritorio, y tiene una posición única para estar en el centro de la próxima ola de productos electrónicos de consumo, combinando una hermosa interfaz táctil de una portátil con la experiencia completa de una PC cuando está acoplado a ésta.

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
"A lot of times people will come to us and have a very diverse set of requirements or very customized need and we'll help them to implement it in a fashion that you can't just buy off of the shelf," explained Nick Rose, CTO of Enzu, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...
While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it.
