Managing the new architecture will require new operating systems. HP is building a Machine OS from scratch, but its also developing a version based on Linux and another with Googles mobile OS. What if we actually built a version of Android that was tuned and optimized for these nonvolatile memory systems? We have a team thats doing that too, Fink said. He didnt say more about the mobile plans and HPs near-term focus is likely to be servers.

Native Outlook Web App preview now out for some Android phones | Ars Technica
VAT Rating: The HTC One is up there with the very best smartphones on the market today. It has superb performance, and excellent build quality spoiled only slightly by running hot in use. You can't fault the feature set, and it matches the other high-end products in terms of price. In terms of audio and visual output it is unsurpassed. The interface might be an acquired taste for some, and we weren't overly impressed with the camera. It's not perfect, but alongside the Xperia Z and iPhone 5 this is about as good a phone as you can buy. Reviewed on: 13 May 14 RRP: 135 inc VAT Rating: Motorola's Moto G is the best budget smartphone around.

Bonny Joy, Chief, Consumer Telemetry Platforms, said: "The three big categories are social, communication, and browsing - together they account for nearly a third of the time spent. Our analysis on the top 25 apps across each of the categories shows games and lifestyle segments are among the most vulnerable in maintaining mindshare as they are quick to come and disappear from our rankings." Barry Gilbert, Vice President, said: "Without doubt time spent on mobile is on the upward trajectory. Our data shows that of the total time spent, the gain is attributed primarily to the increased usage in social, communication and browsing categories." AppOptix addresses the contextual nuances of the consumer behavior through a full-suite of tools, including dashboards, reports, and leading analyst insights on device brands, operators, models, and apps.
