(…) solo comercializará los teléfonos Symbian que tiene en stock hasta agotar existencias.

symbian-logo
A finales de enero, Nokia comunicaba en un informe financiero que el 808 PureView, con su impresionante cámara de de 41 megapíxeles, sería el último teléfono con Symbian que fabricaría. Después de vender solo 2,2 millones de móviles con la plataforma en el último trimestre de 2012 (la mitad que los Lumia y la cuarta parte que los Asha), estaba claro que el apoyo de la finlandesa al mítico sistema operativo móvil, extendido durante 12 años, tenía que llegar a su fin.

Google Talk vía SMS en Personal

Ahora, lo que me soprende es que el video oficial tiene casi 3 meses y fué visto menos de 250 veces lo que es simplemente ridículo porque el servicio, si NO TENES UN SMARTPHONE puede ser algo muy bueno para vos, si lo usás de forma inteligente.

¿que es usar SMS Gtalk – Personal de forma inteligente? Básicamente hacer toda la carga de contactos, códigos y etc vía web para evitar cargos de SMS y luego, tener todo agendado perfectamente para usarlo cuando tenés que contactar a alguien que sabés que está en su PC para mandar mensajes de texto de forma rápida… no te olvides que, si tuvieras un plan de datos, el costo de usar GTalk está incluído pero los SMS tienen un costo individual que, en un chat largo puede convertirse en un problema 😉

Todos sabemos que Google Talk puede comunicarse con cualquier servidor Jabber, lo que no sabía es que Personal había habilitado un server para poder usar Google Talk con SMS en 4 clics. A ver, no es tan en 4 clics porque hay que registrarse, ingresar el número, confirmar la titularidad del teléfono y luego agendar un número para asociarlo a tus contactos de GTalk.

How to Plan Mobile Enterprise Development Using Forrester’s POST Strategy

According to a new report from Forrester, mobile development has gone from being a separate silo to being mainstream. As more and more IT departments will be called upon to create mobile applications, Forrester recommends managers and developers adopt its POST (People, Objectives, Strategy, Technology) strategy. POST was actually created for marketing and business development professionals, but the company explains how to apply it to mobile application development.

Executive Summary

[http://www.forrester.com/rb/Research/define_mobile_development_strategy/q/id/56935/t/2?src=RSS_CustomFeed&cm_mmc=Forrester-_-RSS-_-Document-_-6]

Developing mobile applications used to be an arcane activity pursued by highly specialized developers, but no more. The surge in popularity of Android devices, BlackBerries, and iPhones has application development professionals gearing up to incorporate mobile development into mainstream development processes. The first step in taking mobile development mainstream is defining your strategy. Learn from your peers in consumer product strategy by applying Forrester’s POST method to your mobile development efforts. Begin by understanding what types of mobile users you need to support. Next, determine your objectives, and then build a strategy based on your desired offering and level of corporate commitment to mobile. Once you have completed these three steps, then — and only then — should you choose from among the six mobile development styles at your disposal and the vendors that offer mobile platforms and tools that can aid your efforts.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Use The POST Method To Get Started, But Keep Your Options Open

WHAT IT MEANS

  • Mobile Development Is Crossing The Chasm
  • Supplemental Material
  • Related Research Documents

People

The process begins with profiling your target audience. Forrester identifies four types of mobile users:

  • Task workers
  • Information workers
  • Wannabes
  • SuperConnecteds

Each has their own requirements and you need to determine what those are before starting. Leer más “How to Plan Mobile Enterprise Development Using Forrester’s POST Strategy”
