BlackBerry Z10: Beautiful phone, playing serious catch-up

The Z10 is a beautiful device: designer Todd Wood, Don Lindsday, and their teams have done a great job with the industrial design, the swipe-rich interaction gestures, and a whole lot more. The BB10 is a pleasure to hold, to swipe, and to carry around in a suit pants pocket.

Here are my favorite bits:

  • Thin, light, elegant, executive, with a holdable form factor and case
  • The keyboard, with its predictive word look up and « flip into place » word completion is a pleasure for this thick-thumbed, fumble-finger typist
  • Swipe gestures, including peeking into the inbox, the slow swipe to home position, and the pull-down configuration are a pleasure to use one handed.

The device does have many apps, Twitter and Facebook among them. Alas, some of the apps I rely on are missing. No TripIt app. No Evernote app. No Flipboard app. No Expensify app. No Words With Friends app. And more troubling, I found one app that appeared to be a Chinese counterfeit and seems now to have been so. Maybe BlackBerry’s « portothon » strategy to help Android developers port their apps to BlackBerry’s QNX operating system is working. But there may be a few approval and copyright holes to plug in their process. I know this company, and I know they’ll figure that part out.

But the real challenge for CIOs is that employees have moved on to Apple and Android (particularly Samsung’s stellar lineup). Forrester surveys the information workforce globally to find out how they use technology to get work done. It’s a goldmine of insight and reality. And the reality for the US market is that for firms of all sizes and industries, BlackBerry has only 6 percent of the information workforce installed base. So BlackBerry is playing some serious catch-up. See the data chart at the end of the post.

Here’s what CIOs should do:

  • Upgrade your BES so you’re ready to support the new BlackBerry devices. You’ll be able to manage iOS and Android devices as well. BlackBerry is making this relatively painless to do
  • Add Z10 and its cousin Q10 with a keyboard to your approved list. It will pass muster with your security team
  • Experiment with the dual-mode–personal and work–features to see if it works for your workforce and if it solves your device-wipe/content-control problem (I’m still skeptical on this one, but hey I’ve been wrong before)
  • Wait for the demand. That’s BlackBerry’s job: To convince your employees that this is the device for them.

Then and only then should you target Z10 or Q10 for your business apps. In other words, take a « get-ready then wait » approach. I don’t know about you, but I’m rooting for this operating system and platform if only to have more choice in the market.

Samsung adds 4G-ready Galaxy Express to Jelly Bean pile

Summary: Samsung has introduced a new mid-range handset to its Galaxy range that includes 4G LTE connectivity, dual-core processor and a 5-megapixel camera.

Samsung has announced a new Android Jelly-Bean toting 4G-capable handset aimed at the mid-range market.

The Samsung Galaxy Express has a 4.5-inch Super Amoled display, 1.2-GHz dual-core processor, 4G connectivity and a 5-megapixel camera. The device is due to go on sale in the first half of this year in the UK, Samsung said in an announcement on Tuesday.

Samsung_GALAXY_Express

With its mid-range spec list, Samsung is clearly hoping the « value-driven » handset will appeal to price-sensitive buyers that want most of the functionality of a ‘hero’ handset such as the Galaxy S3, iPhone or BlackBerry Z10. Despite this, the company would not give any indication how much it will cost when it arrives in the UK.

Other key specs of the device include near field communications (NFC), the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface, Bluetooth 4.0, 8GB internal memory (expandable by microSD by an additional 32GB) and a 1.3-megapixel camera.

It also includes Samsung-specific features found on other Galaxy handsets such as AllShare Play for device-to-device sharing of content and S Beam for wirelessly transferring files with other handsets.

Apps are provided courtesy of the Google Play store, although there is also a Samsung Apps section. Software updates and file transfers are handled by the Samsung Kies and Kies Air wireless software.

Ballmer: Office with no iPad support makes ‘a lot of sense’

The question of Office for iOS has burned for a year, but a release is still up in the air with comments by Microsoft Chief Steve Ballmer at yesterday’s « new » Office 365 launch.

Asked about Office for the iPad, Ballmer gave a terse reply: « I have nothing to say on the topic. »

« We’re very happy with the product that we’re putting in market, » Ballmer told Bloomberg. « It makes sense on the devices like the Mac and the PC. We have a product that we think makes a lot of sense. We do have a way for people always to get to Office through the browser, which is very important. And we’ll see what we see in the future.

Rumours that Office would be coming to iPads and iPhone in March 2013 surfaced late last year after Microsoft’s Czech office announced Office Mobile for Android and iOS, allowing owners of Apple devices to purchase a subscription to Office 365. In the meantime, the only tablet on which Office is available is Microsoft’s own Surface.

The fundamental issue thought to be behind the delay in bringing Office to iOS is Microsoft’s unwillingness to pay Apple’s 30-percent commission on apps sold through its App Store. Negotiations on the issue derailed Microsoft’s plans to update its SkyDrive app for iOS last year, according to All Things Digital.

Microsoft also announced on Tuesday that the Home Premium version of Office would get tighter integration with its SkyDrive cloud storage service, along with Skype calling.

Despite Microsoft’s late entry to a market that Dropbox cornered early, Ballmer told Bloomberg that he remains unfazed by the « fine little start-up » and its 100 million users, which, he noted, are dwarfed by Microsoft’s billion for its Office cash cow. (How many users does Microsoft’s Dropbox rival Skydrive have? It’s not quite clear; last month, Microsoft said more than 200 million people « have used » SkyDrive, but didn’t give a figure on how many are still active users.)

A key difference between the two, according to Ballmer, is that Dropbox is dominated by consumers, while Office 365 gets a much higher percentage of revenue from business customers. That said, Dropbox is making its way into the enterprise: a recent study found that one in five corporate IT users are using the service to store work documents.

Les bons résultats d’Apple ne rassurent pas la bourse américaine

Apple affiché un chiffre d’affaires trimestriel record de 54,5 milliards de dollars, pour la période d’octobre à décembre 2012, contre 46,3 milliards sur le même trimestre en 2011. Ses bénéfices nets se sont élevés à 13,1 milliards d’euros, en stagnation par rapport au même trimestre de l’année dernière.
Apple a vendu 47,8 millions d’iPhones, moins que ce qu’espéraient les analystes compte tenu de la montée en puissance de l’iPhone 5 et de la période des fêtes de d’année, même si le volume des ventes progresse de 27 % en un an. Les ventes des tablettes iPads ont atteint 22,9 millions d’unités, contre 15,4 millions un an avant.
La déception vient surtout des ventes de Mac, dont il ne s’est vendu que 4,1 millions d’unités, contre 5,2 millions sur le même trimestre de l’exercice 2011. Apparemment, Apple n’est pas épargné par la désaffection croissante des consommateurs pour les micro-ordinateurs. De même, les ventes des baladeurs iPods ont reculé de 17 % en un an.
Après l’annonce des résultats d’Apple, mercredi 23 janvier au soir, après la fermeture de la bourse américaine, l’action du géant de Cupertino a baissé de 10 %.

Kim Dotcom a lancé Mega : déjà plus de 250.000 utilisateurs

Il n’aura fallu que quelques heures au successeur de Megaupload pour compter plus de 250.000 inscrits.

Depuis une grosse poignée d’heures, le nouveau service de stockage et partage de fichiers de Kim Dotcom, Mega, qui remplace Megaupload, est lancé. Vous avez certainement pu découvrir plus en détails ce service. Enfin, si vous êtes chanceux et avez réussi à vous connecter au site.

En quelques heures, ce sont en effet 100.000 puis 250.000 personnes qui se sont inscrites à Mega. Comme l’indiquait Kim Dotcom au fil de plusieurs tweets publiés samedi soir : « Le site est toujours surchargé. Demande énorme. Incroyable. Je suis si heureux. Merci d’utiliser Mega », déclarait-il dans un premier tweet, qui prenait des airs de dégustation d’un plan qui se savoure froid… « Capacité des serveurs au maximum de charge. Cela devrait aller mieux quand la frénésie initiale sera passée. Waouh !!! », glissait-il quelques minutes plus tard pour faire patienter le monde.

De la patience, il en faudra pour accéder à ce nouveau service et pouvoir en profiter pleinement. La rançon du buzz de ces derniers mois. Une bonne nouvelle pour Kim Dotcom, un bon départ étant souvent la garantie du succès. Pour autant, prudence, ce service va rapidement être décortiqué par tous les développeurs et chercheurs en sécurité du globe…

De futurs produits Nexus en prévision chez LG ?

Alors que la sortie du Nexus 4 produit par LG n’a pas franchement brillé par sa disponibilité, le produit reste à ce jour impossible à commander depuis le Google Play Store, il semblerait pourtant que LG et Google aient de grandes ambitions pour déjà lui trouver un successeur !

n4-5

C’est en effet ce qu’un article publié sur l’International Business Times indique en citant les propos du Senior Vice President de LG, James Fisher. D’après eux, la production du modèle actuel, déjà très ralentie comme nous avons pu le constater, serait, selon certaines spéculations, tout simplement mise à l’arrêt pour mieux préparer de nouveaux modèles qui pourraient arriver dès le mois prochain. Il ajoute même que le Nexus 4 ne représentait que le premier représentant de nombreux produits à venir réalisés conjointement avec Google.

Selon lui, d’importantes annonces seront faites lors du prochain salon Mobile World Congress qui aura lieu à Barcelone en février. Il faudrait s’attendre à voir arriver plus d’appareils haut de gamme dans des tailles d’écrans variées.

Difficile de savoir ce qui sera réellement annoncé, tout ce que nous pouvons espérer c’est que cette fois LG et Google assurent le service et soient capable de produire les appareils en temps et en heure afin que les clients puissent l’obtenir. Car proposer des appareils séduisants c’est une chose, faire qu’ils soient utilisés en est une autre !

Ceci étant, il s’agit que de simples spéculations.
Le MWC de Barcelone viendra ou non confirmer de la véracité de ses propos.
