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.
ZTE Open è in mostra al Mobile World Congress 2013 a Barcellona allo stand 3C64/3C74, padiglione 3.

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...

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...

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 ...

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 Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

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...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...

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 ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
