New Brunswick start-up Agora Mobile has developed a revolutionary platform for the visual development of mobile web applications.
As we move closer to launch, we are beginning a private beta targeting developers (and other forward-thinking sorts). To kick off this beta, we are beginning a series of webinars which introduce the platform and concepts. The first webinar is this Thursday (June 26).
Register for the webinar at http://developers.vizwik.com – and as a bonus you will become part of the private beta!
Check out my post entitled Apple Swift – A step in the right direction (or is it?) over in the Vizwik blog
(spoiler alert: I don’t hate it, I just think it solves the wrong problem!)
Gartner Says Android to Become No. 2 Worldwide Mobile Operating System in 2010 and Challenge Symbian for No. 1 Position by 2014
So Gartner weighs in on mobile phone market evolution over the next few years. Points which I found interesting:
- Apple does not control the universe, and in fact its market share will remain pretty much steady over the next few years.
- The only projected significant market growth comes for Android, and it is really significant.
- The imminent release of Windows Mobile 7 will have no positive effect on Microsoft’s market share, and in fact Gartner projects Windows Mobile to drop to only 3.9% market share by 2014 – even though is number of units will almost triple. It will be interesting to see if Windows Mobile 7 is as meaningless as they project.
