Do a Google search for “BYOD” and you might be surprised. Over the past year, it seems like every technology company has launched a new solution for BYOD or repositioned existing products to capitalize on the Bring Your Own Device trend. In fact, half of the 2012 Forbes Fast Tech 25 list has done just that. But the market opportunity for BYOD isn’t only for the up-and-comers, it’s potentially big business. Every one of the world’s top 15 technology companies in the 2012 Forbes Global 2000 list stands to gain from BYOD.
Samsung has made strides in making Android enterprise-ready, but the operating system remains too fragmented for most organizations to standardize on.
It's official, and it's been official for a while -- Android is far and away the most popular smartphone OS in America. Ever since January 2011, when the platform surpassed RIM to take the top spot for the first time in comScore's monthly market share rankings, Google's operating system has continued to grow its user base, which accounts for 52% of the market as of this January.

May 11, 2012: WDD: NTT DOCOMO Remote Lock Service Provides Enterprises and Consumers Increased Peace of Mind
Wireless Design & Development: With the tremendous power of smartphones, and the increasing amount of information that can be stored on them, lost and stolen devices have become one of the biggest threats to consumer privacy and to Enterprise security. Think about it. A lost smartphone isn't just an inconvenience, it opens the door to email accounts, banking apps or any saved site or app linked to a credit card. That's why NTT DOCOMO partnered with Red Bend to create a solution. Red Bend and NTT DOCOMO have jointly developed and recently released a product that address the risk of lost smartphones. The initiative demonstrates the versatility of Red Bend’s vDirect Mobile® software in managing wireless devices over-the-air.
Red Bend Software, which specialises in Mobile Software Management (MSM), has revealed that its drop-in device management client, vDirect Mobile 5.0, is interoperable with the Motive Mobile Device Management solution from Alcatel-Lucent, reducing time to market for the introduction of 4G LTE devices and services.Since 2008, Red Bend has collaborated with Alcatel-Lucent to help equipment manufacturers and mobile network operators launch mobile devices and services more quickly and easily. Using vDirect Mobile 5.0 on their 4G LTE devices, Red Bend says that device manufacturers can ensure seamless compliance with mobile operators’ customized Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA DM) specifications which are used by the Motive Mobile Device Management solution from Alcatel-Lucent to configure, upgrade and manage devices, and engage in troubleshooting operations.
Business Computing World-There’s been a lot of talk about smartphones heralding the end of the voice-only phone era and tablets being “post-PC devices”. These discussions primarily address the physical form factor and the functionality aspects of mobile devices.An insightful paper by Tony Cripps of Ovum (“A PC or not a PC? That is the iPad question,” March 2011) suggests that this change in the mobile computing landscape is down to the battle of the traditional OSes and lite OSes. He states that the reason for the lite OS is the constraints of the newly connected devices, including a reliance on ARM’s RISC-based chip design.Tony makes many interesting points, but I believe that social change is another aspect that must be considered when analyzing the change in the mobile computing landscape.
Red Bend Software, the market leader in Mobile Software Management (MSM) with more than 1.5 billion Red Bend-Enabled™ devices, today announced that Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ-NMS: SWIR - TSX: SW) has licensed Red Bend’s vLogix Mobile™ software for Mobile Virtualization for use in its AirPrime™ embedded wireless modules.

Virtualization is a reality in most date centers these days, but now IT executives are looking at mobile virtualization as a result of the BYOD culture. By running two instances of an operating system on a smartphone, you can relegate personal apps and services to one OS and business services to a more secure OS.
Android version fragmentation is a problem. The actual solution to the Android update problem has been materializing in the background for the last two years and will almost certainly show its face sometime in productized form in 2012. And that’s Android Virtualization... I’ve actually seen Red Bend’s VLX and provisioning combination in beta form and to say that I am extremely impressed with what the technology can do is an understatement. It will do for the wireless industry what Virtualization has done for the Datacenter and enterprise computing, which is to say it will be a game-changer.
At Red Bend Software, we believe ARM’s newest processor, the ARM Cortex-A7, and ARM’s new big.LITTLE processing technology solidify the future of virtualization in the next generation of smart devices.
Chipmakers lining up to use the A7 included Broadcom, Freescale, HiSilicon, Samsung, ST-Ericsson and Texas Instruments, while the London launch also saw support from members of the wide mobile ecosystem, such as Compal, LG, OK Labs, QNX, Redbend and Sprint.
ARM already have eight public partners for the licence, including mobile giants Samsung, LG and QNX. The other partners are Broadcom, Compal, Freescale, Linaro, OK Labs, Redbend, ST-Ericsson and Texas Instruments. The A7 will be shipping at the end of 2012.
The Cambridge chip design company ARM has unveiled a chip design that it say uses could mean cheaper smartphones with battery lives five times longer by 2013.
It’s the architects of smart phones that are really pushing the envelope for energy-efficient computing. On Wednesday, processor licensing company ARM announced it has designed an ultra-efficient processor core, the Cortex-A7, as well as an energy-efficient method of processing that jumps back and forth between two processors to minimize the energy use of the phone.
