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.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
