ZTE Open, il primo smartphone al mondo con Firefox SO

ZTE ha lanciato ZTE Open, il primo smartphone al mondo che supporta l'ecosistema mobile aperto di Mozilla Firefox OS. In collaborazione con l'operatore globale Telefónica, ZTE lancerà inizialmente ZTE Open in Spagna, Venezuela e Colombia nella metà del 2013.

ZTE Open è uno smartphone di fascia bassa, l'ideale per giovani che vogliono sperimentare le più recenti tecnologie e per le persone dal budget limitato che passano da un cellulare tradizionale al loro primo smartphone. Presenta un display touch HVGA TFT da 3,5", 256 MB di RAM e 512 MB di ROM oltre a una videocamera da 3,2 MP. Supporta Bluetooth 2.1, WIFI 802.11b/g/n e AGPS ed è dotato di una batteria 1200 mAh.

"ZTE continua a superare i limiti esistenti con l'obiettivo di fornire ai clienti le più recenti innovazioni della tecnologia mobile", ha affermato He Shiyou, vicepresidente esecutivo di ZTE e direttore della divisione dispositivi mobili.

"ZTE si è mossa molto velocemente e ha collaborato con noi per sviluppare uno smartphone robusto basato su Mozilla Firefox OS", ha affermato Brendan Eich, cofondatore e direttore tecnologico di Mozilla. "Firefox OS porta sul mercato potenti tecnologie basate sull'open web per dare agli utenti più possibilità di scelta e maggiori opzioni che riflettono il loro stile di vita".

"Firefox OS è una pietra miliare per la nostra industria: per la prima volta offre veri standard aperti nel settore mobile", ha affermato Marieta del Rivero, direttore del settore dispositivi del gruppo a Telefónica. "Prevediamo che la combinazione tra costo accessibile e un'esperienza ricca, aperta e dinamica con lo smartphone faranno di ZTE Open un prodotto molto interessante per i nostri clienti, soprattutto i giovani, in questi importanti mercati di Telefónica".

Mozilla Firefox OS si basa su HTML5 ed è completamente open source, per cui gli utenti di ZTE Open saranno in grado di utilizzare applicazioni web e visitare i propri siti internet preferiti senza perdere nessuna delle caratteristiche preferite, come il contenuto dinamico e caratteristiche uniche come servizi di ricerca più personalizzati.

Firefox OS non presenta restrizioni; fornisce una piattaforma di standard open ad alta velocità perfetta per gli sviluppatori che vogliono creare siti e applicazioni basati su HTML5. Le applicazioni così create potranno essere distribuite su Firefox Marketplace.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Electric power utilities face relentless pressure on their financial performance, and reducing distribution grid losses is one of the last untapped opportunities to meet their business goals. Combining IoT-enabled sensors and cloud-based data analytics, utilities now are able to find, quantify and reduce losses faster – and with a smaller IT footprint. Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, will explore the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
