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.

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...

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.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features.
