ZTE Open - 's werelds eerste smartphone met het besturingssysteem Firefox

ZTE heeft ZTE Open gelanceerd, de eerste smartphone ter wereld die draait onder het open mobiele ecosysteem Firefox OS van Mozilla. Samen met de wereldwijde operator Telefónica zal ZTE medio 2013 de ZTE Open eerst in Spanje, Venezuela en Colombia lanceren.

ZTE Open is een instapmodel van een smartphone die ideaal is voor jonge mensen die enthousiast zijn over de allernieuwste technologie en voor mensen met een beperkt budget die graag van een featurephone willen overstappen op hun eerste smartphone. Het toestel beschikt over een 3,5-inch HVGA TFT-touchscreen en combineert 256 MB RAM en 512 MB ROM met een 3,2 MP camera. Het ondersteunt Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi 802.11b/g/n en AGPS, en de batterij is 1200 mAH.

“ZTE blijft de grenzen verleggen met als doel om klanten het allernieuwste te bezorgen dat de mobiele technologie te bieden heeft,” zegt de heer He Shiyou, EVP en hoofd Mobile Devices Division van ZTE.

“ZTE is snel tot actie overgegaan en heeft nauw met ons samengewerkt om een robuuste Mozilla Firefox OS smartphone te ontwikkelen", zegt Brendan Eich, medeoprichter en CTO van Mozilla. “Het besturingssysteem Firefox brengt krachtige webtechnologie naar de smartphonemarkt waardoor gebruikers een grotere keuze en meer opties hebben die hun levensstijl weerspiegelen."

“Firefox OS is een belangrijke mijlpaal voor onze bedrijfstak omdat nu voor de eerste keer betrouwbare open standaarden beschikbaar zijn voor de mobiele telefonie,” stelt Marieta Del Rivero, Group Devices Director van Telefónica. “We verwachten dat de combinatie van betaalbaarheid en een rijke, open en dynamische smartphone-ervaring de ZTE Open erg aantrekkelijk gaat maken voor onze klanten, met name jonge mensen, in deze belangrijke markten voor Telefónica.”

Mozilla’s Firefox OS is gebaseerd op HTML5 en is volkomen open source, en dus kunnen gebruikers van ZTE Open hun webapps gebruiken en hun favoriete websites bekijken zonder de functies te verliezen waar ze gek op zijn. Dit geldt ook voor dynamische content en unieke functies zoals meer gepersonaliseerde zoekdiensten.

Mozilla’s Firefox OS kent geen beperkingen. Het biedt een high-speed platform met open standaarden dat ideaal is voor developers die op HTML5 gebaseerde websites en applicaties willen ontwikkelen. De developers kunnen hun apps via de Firefox marktplaats verspreiden.

De ZTE Open is te bewonderen op het Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, stand 3C64/3C74, hal 3.

ZTE is volgens IDC - een toonaangevende leverancier van wereldwijd ICT-marktonderzoek en wereldwijde adviesdiensten - de op drie na grootste fabrikant van mobiele telefoons ter wereld.

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
