W3W WEEK#31

  1. 1. 1 THE WEEK IN 3 WORDS
  2. 2. 2 WEEK #31
  3. 3. CONTACT-LESS TRANSPORT 3
  4. 4. 4 Mobile devices are a promise of easing our daily life, especially when it comes to payment. But, as of now, initiatives that really made the mobile a payment device have been rare or limited to prototype (except in Japan). London underground is taking a big step toward the future: it will be possible to pay the transport fare using a mobile device as a contactless payment device. The mobile phone will have to be equipped with a NFC chipset (sorry, iPhone commuters… but around 150 other compatible phones in the UK) and a specific application. This really seems a bold move, because it really simplifies a daily service and therefore has a great potential of massive
  5. 5. ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS 5
  6. 6. 6 Early this month, Apple and IBM announced a strategic partnership, which aims at providing enterprise-grade mobile services. The IBM MobileFirst for iOS consists in mobile apps designed to answer specific needs for enterprises. This partnership definitely chased BlackBerry on its own fields and was seen as a huge threat for the already collapsing giant. This threat now becomes real: Ford has said it plans to switch all its employees (around 6 000) from BlackBerry to iPhone devices in the next 2 years. Apple and IBM will have to be very cautious about this first huge enterprise initiative, but, if all goes fine, it is very likely to be the first blip of a big seism in enterprise solutions.
  7. 7. COPYCAT 7
  8. 8. 8 Xiaomi is the very fast growing Chinese company: started only in 2011, it is now second in the Chinese market (21% of the market share; Samsung is first with 23%). At first sight, this rapid growth is quite obvious: Xiaomi is making an iPhone twice cheaper than a real iPhone. Hardware and software designs, communication mimics (“one more thing…”), series of products (cloud, mini tablet, TV streaming box, etc.): Xiaomi looks more than just inspired by Apple’s products. But, on the other hand, Xiaomi could be a refreshing actor in the mobile makers market. Sure they seem to obviously copying Apple, but they do so by innovatively tweaking the Android OS: their version of Android OS is available for many devices. Moreover, they still are young and their early successes could lead them to become a powerful, leading innovative company in the future (as Apple is now, starting years ago by copying the Xerox GUI design…)
