Don’t Forget About Mobility!

Irwin Lazar writes where mobility fits into unified communications strategies.

“One of the hot topics among IT managers I’ve spoken with in recent weeks is integrating mobile phones into their enterprise telephony and UC plans. Requirements vary. At a minimum users are asking for a single number for all their in-bound calls, allowing them to ring on both mobile and desktop, or to forward calls to their mobile if there’s no answer on the desk. Beyond single number reachability, most smartphone users have come to expect access to their calendar, e-mail box, and task lists from their BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile device, or now their Android phone.”

Sean Portnoy recaps Intel’s projections about its future processor sales.

According to Fudzilla, Intel projects that Pentiums not only will outsell Core i3s, i5s, and i7s this first quarter of 2010, but also Core 2 Duos and Core 2 Quads. In other words, the company’s humbler offerings will outpace all of the other boxed Intel CPUs, including the few bargain-priced (and -powered) Celerons that will still be available.

Rachel King writes about the leading smartphone vendors, according to research firm, Gartner.

“Gartner … has found that while Nokia and Symbian were still solid leaders in the smartphone market in 2009, they might have to watch their backs as Apple and RIM have gained some ground. In a recently published study, Nokia controlled 36.4 per cent of the worldwide market share, but they might not be too comfortable though, the Finnish manufacturer saw a 2.2 per cent loss. Samsung is in a distant second at 19.5 per cent, but they’ve gained 3.2 per cent, while Motorola and Sony Ericsson aren’t looking so good with only 4.8 per cent and 4.5 per cent respectively after dropping considerably since 2008.”
