Nokia X – the Trojan Horse

Nokia X – the Trojan Horse Nokia today introduced their X smartphone series, devices that are based on Google’s Android, or more specifically, the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). AOSP eschews all of Google’s basic services and provides the bare Android OS to the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) that then must layer a set of services on top of it so [...]

Holy Buyout Batman! Microsoft Buys Nokia’s Device Business – So Now What?

Holy Buyout Batman! Microsoft Buys Nokia’s Device Business – So Now What? You know, you take one day off to celebrate your nation’s labor unions and you miss out on almost $140 billion (with a “B”) of mergers and acquisitions.  Yup, the deal we all knew would happen eventually happened – oh ya, and Verizon bought the 45% of Verizon Wireless it didn’t own from long time [...]

Reflecting On Enterprise Mobility in 2011: Part I

Reflecting On Enterprise Mobility in 2011: Part I I can’t believe we are just two days away from Christmas.  Almost everyone is winding down for the year to spend some much deserved time with family and get ready for the new year.  It’s also a great time to reflect on what has taken place in the last 12 months. Maybe I’m just getting [...]

The Cure For The BYOD Blues?

The Cure For The BYOD Blues? Just under 15,000.  That’s the number of miles United Airlines tells me I have traveled in the last 2 1/2 weeks.  Not the best excuse, but really the only one I have for not having shared any missives with you on a regular basis during this time period.  Miracle of miracles, I am not traveling [...]

Interop Fall 2011: The Big Issues Now

Interop Fall 2011: The Big Issues Now I’ve had the privilege of Chairing the Wireless and Mobility Track at the Interop conferences for some time now. Interop Spring, held in Las Vegas, is the largest enterprise IT event in the world, and the New York event, Interop Fall, while smaller, is in no way less intense than its big brother. In planning [...]

Making The Case For Four (Enterprise) Mobility Ecosystems

Making The Case For Four (Enterprise) Mobility Ecosystems As you may have seen yesterday, RIM posted some pretty disappointing earnings for the second quarter.  As expected, the stock tanked in after hours trading, and is down ~20% today.  The situation is anything but rosy for our good friends in Waterloo.  And those very highly paid vultures better known as financial analysts continue their [...]

He Who Laughs Last (In Enterprise Mobility) Laughs Best

He Who Laughs Last (In Enterprise Mobility) Laughs Best I’m a big history buff.  See, the reason being because I believe that we simply don’t know how to learn from our past…even though the past always seems to repeat itself.  One of my favorite examples is how the Cloud is nothing we haven’t seen with mainframes and dumb terminals some 20-30 years ago.  Here’s [...]

(Enterprise) Mobility: It’s About Playing Chess, Not Checkers

(Enterprise) Mobility: It’s About Playing Chess, Not Checkers It’s only Wednesday morning and it’s already been a crazy week.  Like many of you (I would assume), I spent the better part of Monday digesting the news regarding Google announcing its intention to buy Motorola.  Since the news came out, I can’t tell you how many people have called or emailed me to ask [...]

Does the OS (Mobile or Otherwise) Still Matter?

Does the OS (Mobile or Otherwise) Still Matter? I was watching one of the business TV channels recently, and a guest expressed the opinion that RIM’s (BlackBerry) current problems stem largely from the lack of a contemporary and competitive operating system. OK, my views on RIM are on record – they’re going to survive and can even prosper in the future, sustained by [...]
