Mobile Marketing : Apple – iPhone – Breakthrough Internet Device

juin 20, 2007

iPhone features a rich HTML email client and Safari — the most advanced web browser ever on a portable device — which automatically syncs bookmarks from your PC or Mac. Safari also includes built-in Google and Yahoo! search. iPhone is fully multi-tasking, so you can read a web page while downloading your email in the background over Wi-Fi or EDGE.

Safari web browser
With its advanced Safari browser, iPhone lets you see any web page the way it was designed to be seen, then easily zoom in by simply tapping on the multi-touch display with your finger.

Mail
iPhone uses a rich HTML email client that fetches your email in the background from most POP3 or IMAP mail services and displays photos and graphics right along with the text.

Google Maps
With Google Maps and iPhone’s amazing Maps application, you can view maps and satellite images, or get directions and traffic information, all from iPhone’s remarkable, easy-to-use touch interface.

Widgets
iPhone even has widgets: small applications that give you helpful information like stock reports, weather reports, and more in real time.

Mobile Marketing : Nokia Introduces Web Widgets for S60

avril 16, 2007

Today Nokia announced the addition of Widgets and Web Run-Time to its S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 smartphone platform. Widgets are lightweight applications built on common web standards like CSS, Javascript, and AJAX. Web Run-Time is the platform that these applications will run on in the S60 environment. It is based on the same core technologies as Nokia’s wildly popular S60 web browser.

Widgets will allow S60 users to keep up to date in real time with their favorite Internet sites and data sources. For example, the WeatherBug widget, shown above, tracks weather in the user’s area, while a Reuters widget might keep a list of current headlines at the user’s fingertips. In the future, widgets will also be able to interact with the core S60 applications, such as the contacts and calendar.

The Web Run-Time and Widget tools and documentation will be available to developers starting in Q3 of this year. We should start seeing S60 3rd Edition FP2 handset coming onto market in Q1 of next year.
