According to software security company F-Secure security Chief Mikko Hypponen, Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform is the safest mobile operating system available to businesses, he further told Windows Phone 8 is presently the safest mobile operating system here.

Although Apple’s iOS is also commonly known as being safe, exactly as safe as BlackBerry for business use, while Android remains a haven for cyber criminals. It seems that F-Secure is giving the “safest” award to Windows Phone 8 at the moment.

At the moment Windows Phone is the safest, there are­­­ thousands of malware for Blackberry and more malware for the iPhone and without a doubt progressively on Android. Interestingly, Hypponen anticipated that “Windows Phone is safest mobile operating system; due to its restrictive development policy should protect it from criminals for the foreseeable future. We’ve seen no malware at all targeting the platform. You want a safe & secure phone? Purchase a Windows Phone.”

Meanwhile, Android receives a bashing for being the most unsafe; firstly, because of amount of malicious Android installation files, it’s almost just double after every quarter. Secondly, because of 3rd party app stores with much has less security features as the official one, Google Play. Although, Google is said to address some of the issues with 3rd party apps/stores in the new version of Android 4.2 taste as jelly bean.

“Windows Phone’s security model inside is somehow prohibitive, I think it’s aimed to take a while before we see Windows Phone being seriously targeted.

In case of Windows Phone 8, it is quite safe at the moment, probably because of not much people are using Windows Phone 8 device. If/when Windows Phone 8 takes off; it might be become a much bigger target for malware. But still my hunch says it will stay the safest.

“A platform is something you assemble a business on.”

 cp gaming“There is a great deal of bits of hearsay swirling around the following gen returning together with PC. It appears things are about-facing to a more standard stage. That being said, we haven’t pondered it vigorously at this moment. The most exceedingly awful thing you can do is stress over new platforms while in development.

bbmRemembering the criticalness of service division, the Blackberry has additionally chosen to make BBM accessible to opponent platforms, for example iOS and Android. The cross-platform usefulness evacuates the exclusivity that had for quite some time served Blackberry well in pulling in new subscribers and is likely an induction of the way that the messaging service is no more extended a huge separating element given the gigantic popularity of third-party applications, for example WhatsApp and WeChat.

Not Quantity but Quality illness of Blackberry World

2011-10-10-bbstormkeypadhorizontal2-copy-1318424615In the run up to the launch of Blackberry 10, we were awed by the way Blackberry was boosting developers to generate applications for the platform. Offering money rewards and giving devices to make porting existing applications from different platforms seemed to have been auspicious given that Blackberry World now claims to offer more than 120,000 applications. Anyway has it been so eager it would be accept submissions and yielded quality for amount?

604x604xS4bb_thumb.jpg.pagespeed.ic.cVUZop54W8The disclosure that Hong Kong-based S4bb is answerable for around 47k of the applications for the Blackberry platform appears inconceivable – however when you investigate what’s incorporated in this massive yield you rapidly arrive at the conclusion that much of it is useless – and liable to degrade Blackberry’s popularity. While S4bb is unconditionally the most productive, different merchants have additionally overwhelmed Blackberry world with extensive amounts of applications generated by pouring substance of minimal quality into templates that Blackberry made accessible keeping in mind the end goal to swell the amount of titles on offer.

The point when organizations attempt to encourage developers to make applications for their platforms, it is basic that they think about the impact that enticements will have on application quality and help. Anybody shrewd enough to compose a program and sharp enough to find ways upgrading income in ways that the promoter never imagined possible.

One was the budgetary impetus – developers were baited with the prospect of $100 for every approved application (up to a furthest reaches of 20 applications for every vendor) in addition to opportunities to win a Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha Device by submitting 5 or more applications. The different was the simplicity of porting existing applications with a few developers asserting to have ported applications in under a moment.

Obviously, you just acquire these prizes provided that you application traverses the choice handle for the Blackberry World store. Anyhow given that RIM is planning to have no less than 70,000 apps approachable by the launch of Blackberry 10 on January 30 this is its final enormous any desire for making its target.

What particular issues they are referring to are obscure, yet Orange claims they are expecting results from RIM and want to have the device over on racks in a couple of weeks. As you likely recently know, the US make a big appearance of the Bold has been pushed back over and again maybe these issues have something to do with the postponement here too.
