Last month a Vodafone employee let slip the N97 would be getting a smaller counterpart, but obviously this wall was all rumours. Apparently though he was right and pictures and information have “leaked” onto t’internet. The noticeable difference is the smaller screen and chassis. The D-Pad on the keyboard has been removed and the 32GB of memory has apparently been dropped to 8GB although you can still upgrade no doubt with microSD. Unfortunately no date was leaked with it, but expect it to be Nokia’s attempt to draw back some customers from Apple, with a lower priced smartphone. The N97 is a great phone, will the mini live up to its big brother.

Ten Tips for Promoting your Employer with Personal Social Media

New Media on Ulitzer I’ve been asked from time to time by businesses about how to educate employees on using Social Media – from two perspectives. One perspective is simply as part of a broader Internet use policy, to help employees stay safe and protect information assets. Another perspective is to encourage employees to support their business in their daily online activities, should they choose to do so. This is essentially giving employees as “social media enthusiasts” the tools and guidance they should get, to help them positively contribute to the overall online marketing efforts of their employer. Following is some template guidance that can be used and shared with employees. Let us know how this can be improved or updated. Additional consulting regarding planning and implementing social media programs for businesses and organizations is available via KME Int... (more)

Virtualization Goes Mobile

Recently VMware announced the Mobile Virtualization Platform (MVP) aimed at handset vendors to enable mobile users to choose between two different platforms or phone numbers on a single handset. This technology, which I call "virtualization light," would enable users who had separate phones for work and for home to be able to use both phones from a single device. For example, say that you have both a personal and a business cell phone; this software would enable you to combine the two into a single mobile platform, supporting two separate operating systems, phone numbers, and data communications. Thus, users would be able to bring any device into the workplace and the IT team could use that device to include any particular workplace policies. It could even be the case that one device could have multiple operating systems running so that you see Symbian and Android in... (more)

Mobile Application Stores: What's the Operator's Play

Mobile application uptake-it isn't only about iPhones.  Sure Apple's App Store now offers over 65,000 applications, and users have downloaded more than 1.5 billion iPhone and iPod touch applications in the 1st year since launch. But while getting a late start, other mobile application storefronts are trying to catch up.  In the 3 months since launch, RIM's BlackBerry App World has 2,000 applications ready for download. The Nokia Ovi Store is leveraging (and paying 70% revenue share to) the large Symbian developer community to create new applications for its user base. At the myTouch 3G launch, Google announced that there are more than 5,000 applications in the Android Marketplace. Recently joining the party is the LG Application Store, initially targeting markets in Asia.  But if mobile application uptake continues to center on smartphone application stores, how wi... (more)

Managing the Multiplatform Mess

I have been using Pandora’s online stream music service off and on for several years. What got me more interested lately was it being one of the many services on my Roku video streaming box, which my wife and I use mostly for watching movies from Netflix’s “watch instantly” queue. As I investigated the service more, I came to understand exactly the challenge of what it takes to be truly multi-platform in the current era. It isn’t just about having both Web and mobile phone versions of your service, but how you have to go deep into a lot of different devices to appeal to your customers. The cool thing about Pandora isn’t that you can create your own custom radio station that will try to find music based on a particular artist or genre. But that once you set up your account on one platform, you can access it in your car, in your home, and on the road in between. All w... (more)

[berkman] Dan Gillmor on Living off the Privacy Grid

Dan Gillmor is giving a Berkman lunchtime talk about his Permission Taken project. Dan, who has been very influential on my understanding of tech and has become a treasured friend, is going to talk about what we can do to live in an open Internet. He begins by pointing to Jonathan Zittrain’s The Future of the Internet and Rebecca MacKinnon’s Consent of the Networked [two hugely important books]. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information. Introducing artificial choppiness. Over-emphasizing small matters. Paraphrasing badly. Not running a spellpchecker. Mangling other people’s ideas and words. You are warned, people. He says that the intersection of convenience and freedom is narrowing. He goes through a “parade of horribles” [which I cannot keep up with]. He pauses on Loic Le Meur’s [twitter:loic] tweet: “A friend working for... (more)
