O Ubuntu chega para telefones com uma interface refinada e uma capacidade única do PC, quando conectado

A Canonical anunciou hoje uma interface distintiva de smartphone para o sistema operacional popular, o Ubuntu, usando todas as quatro bordas da tela para obter uma experiência mais imersiva. O Ubuntu oferece exclusivamente a aparelhos OEM e operadoras móveis a capacidade de convergir telefone, computador e cliente fino em um único superphone corporativo.

“Esperamos que o Ubuntu se torne popular no mercado corporativo, possibilitando os clientes a utilizarem um único dispositivo seguro para funções de PC, cliente fino e telefone. O Ubuntu já é o desktop corporativo mais usado do Linux, com clientes vários setores e foco em segurança, custo e administração”, disse Jane Silber, Diretor Executivo da Canonical. “Também percebemos uma oportunidade nos smartphones básicos usados para telefonia, SMS, Web e e-mail, onde o Ubuntu se supera graças aos aplicativos nativos e a apresentação elegante”.

O Ubuntu destina-se a dois segmentos móveis: o superphone de alta tecnologia e o smartphone básico de entrada, ajudando as operadoras a aumentar o uso de dados entre os clientes, que normalmente usam apenas telefone e mensagens, mas que podem adotar o uso da Web e de e-mail em seus telefones. O Ubuntu também apela para os consumidores profissionais que desejam uma experiência nova com rapidez e desempenho melhorado em um dispositivo com lista de materiais menor.

A interface do aparelho para o Ubuntu apresenta novas experiências distintas do usuário ao mercado móvel, incluindo:

1. Edge magic: o movimento dos dedos em todas as quatro bordas da tela permite que ao usuário encontrar conteúdo e alternar entre aplicativos mais rápido do que em outros telefones.

2. Imersão profunda no conteúdo: os controles aparecem apenas quando o usuário desejar.

3. Uma pesquisa global de aplicativos, conteúdo e produtos

4. Comandos de voz e texto em qualquer aplicativo para acesso rápido a recursos avançados

5. Aplicativos nativos e Web ou HTML5

6. Arte personalizada e evolutiva na tela de boas vindas.

O Ubuntu oferece opções de personalização atraentes para aplicativos, conteúdo e serviços de parceiros. Operadoras e OEMs podem adicionar facilmente suas próprias ofertas. O serviço de nuvem pessoal da Canonical, o Ubuntu One, fornece armazenamento e serviços de mídia, compartilhamento de arquivos e um serviço de transação segura, permitindo que parceiros integrem facilmente suas ofertas de serviço.

A Canonical facilita a fabricação de telefones com Ubuntu. A empresa fornece serviços de engenharia para remover a complexidade de manter várias bases de código, o que tem provado ser um problema comum a fabricantes de smartphones, liberando o fabricante para se concentrar no projeto e na integração do hardware. Para os fornecedores de aparelhos eletrônicos, o Ubuntu é compatível com o típico Pacote de suporte de placa Android (BSP). Isso significa que o Ubuntu está pronto para rodar nos modelos de chipsets mais econômicos.

Ao trazer o Ubuntu para telefone, a Canonical está em uma posição privilegiada, com um único sistema operacional para cliente, servidor e nuvem, além de uma família unificada de interfaces para telefone, PC e televisão. “Nós estamos definindo uma nova era de convergência em tecnologia, com um sistema operacional unificado que sustenta a computação em nuvem, centros de dados, PCs e produtos eletrônicos de consumo”, explica Mark Shuttleworth, fundador do Ubuntu e Vice-Presidente de Produtos da Canonical.

A Canonical atende atualmente os principais OEMs de PC: ASUS, Dell, HP e Lenovo certificam a maioria de seus PCs no Ubuntu e o pré-instalam no mercado global. Hoje, mais de 20 milhões de computadores desktop executam o sistema operacional e a Canonical estima que aproximadamente 10% dos novos desktops e laptops no mundo utilizarão o Ubuntu em 2014. O Ubuntu também é popular como uma plataforma de servidor, o sistema operacional de servidor número um nas maiores nuvens públicas e o sistema operacional hospedeiro principal para OpenStack, o código aberto IAAS.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
