With the use of all this web technologies, there is no difference between web applications and native apps. This allow Firefox OS devices, to rum applications without install them.

Firefox OS showed off ZTE Open C, a $25 smartphone prototype.

Intel

The famous chip maker, introduced two new mobile processors: Merrifield and Moorefield, both 64-bit processor. They integrate PowerVR graphics chipset, and we could see how it works flawlessly with 3D full 1080p graphics apps.

LG

LG showed one of the most impresive designs, the LG G Flex. This smartphone has a curve body and display with a certain degree of flexibility. It includes a self-healing back panel coating

Nokia

Nokia has introduced its phones with its Android. This Android SO version is adapted to operate with Microsoft services. The devices are the Nokia X and Nokia X+ and NokiaXL, all with Android OS 4.4 and dual SIM. 
 
During these days, we had the opportunity to talk with Nokia engineers and they told us that in most cases, existing applications work with Nokia Android SO. Despite this, Nokia offers tools for developers to test and adapt applications to new devices.

Samsung

The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear 2 was launched at MWC 2014. The new S5 is the new flagship of Samsung, with the important news of a fingerprint reader and water resistance body.

The Gear 2 is the evolution of Gear that incorporates Samsung's Tizen OS. It also includes a new sensor to monitor heart rate.

We also attended the Samsung Developer Day where new Samsung APIs were presented. They talked about the possibilities offered by new "wearable"  devices to developers, because there are few applications for these devices.

<![CDATA[Twitter finishes with third-party clients]]> Wed, 23 Mar 2011 00:00:00 +0100

If you have the intention of developing another twitter client  you better forsake that idea. Twitter is sending this messaje to developers, saying that no more unofficial clients will be allowed. With this measure Twitter intends to have more control of user experience.

This leads companies such as Ubermedia (which acquired  TweetDeck,on February 2011) to a difficult situation.

Beyond the consequences this measure may bring, we should reflect on the convenience of investing money in developing a project which is based on third-party clients platform/application without having control of the final product. This is one of the most important points for investors when deciding whether to support a project or not.

<![CDATA[Email usage decreases while e-commerce escalates]]> Fri, 11 Feb 2011 00:00:00 +0100 According to the last report presented by  comScore, about  ICT usage in USA during 2010,the email usage has dropped dramatically except among the population aged 55 and over.

A few weeks ago , a similar piece of news appeared in Spain. Telefónica's chairperson alerted to the decrease of about the 20% of text message sendings at Christmas.

Both news are related to the raise of social networks usage which have become a powerful medium of communication.

The report also points out the growth of the e-commerce about a 9%. In our opinion, the tendency is also going to be experienced in the Spanish market.
