    • The Evolving Mobile Ecosystem and MeeGo
      Gail Rahn Frederick
    • Who am I?
      Product Planner at Intel
      I work on the MeeGo project
      I’m speaking tonight from personal experience, not as an Intel representative
      Mobile Web Enthusiast
      Deployed mobile search engines and mobile web sites to operators in US and Europe
      Wrote Beginning Smartphone Web Development for Apress in late 2009
      My passion
      Mobile App Developer
      Wrote code for and managed mobile apps with 20+ million cumulative downloads and pre-installs
    • Who are you?
      With a show of hands, who…
      Has built a mobile web site?
      Knows how to analyze its traffic from device models and through operator networks?
      Has written a mobile app?
      Deployed to an App store?
      Made money with mobile apps?
      Has installed the MeeGo SDK?
      Has seen the MeeGo Tablet UX?
      Written a Qt/QML app for MeeGo?
    • Agenda
      What is MeeGo
      Mobile Industry Players
      Mobile OS Market Share across Geos
      Mobile OS Choices for OEMs, Consumers and Developers
      Mobile Web vs. Native App
      Tablets: Mobile Devices or Not?
      MeeGo Value Proposition
      No prior familiarity with mobility is assumed.
    • What is MeeGo?
    • MeeGo Value Proposition
      100% Open-Source OS built for Mobile and Embedded
      Tablets
      Handsets
      TVs
      Netbooks
      In-Vehicle Infotainment
      Uses Linux Kernel
      Open Governance
      Open Roadmap
      Nurtured by Intel and others, owned by Linux Foundation
    • Mobile Industry
      Or, how an advertising giant came to develop a mobile OS, and vice versa.
    • Mobile Industry Players
      OEMs
      OS Vendors
      Network Operators
      App Stores
      App Developers
      Media Developers (Music, Video, etc.)
      Mobility blurs traditional boundaries in computing ecosystem:
      Nokia is a mobile music vendor.
      Apple has a mobile advertising network.
      Google provides a mobile OS.
      Intel owns an app store and enables a mobile OS.
    • The Patent Mess
      Rapid industry innovation +
      Rush to patent actual and questionable innovations +
      Slow turnarounds at USPTO =
      Litigious mobile industry rushing to own and protect patents
    • Mobile OS Market Share
      Or, it’s not all about iOS
    • Mobile Device Market Share by OS, Worldwide
      Data from Gartner – August 2010
    • Data from Feb 2011 - Source (data and following graphic): icrossing.co.uk
    • Consumers, OEMs and Developers
      Why would each audience choose each mobile OS?
    • Choosing Mobile Web Doesn’t Help
      21 WebKits on Mobile with API variations
      field/method exists (yay!)
      field/method should exist but does not
      field/method exists but implementation is broken
      XHTML-MP, HTML4 or HTML5?
      It depends on the device
      And whether the device identifies itself as mobile
      HTML5 helps … on proven mobile platforms
      Moving intelligence into HTML5 means browser vendors must worry about app-grade performance
    • Tablets: Mobile Devices or Not?
      What are your thoughts here?
    • The End
      Thanks for Listening!
