Pendant ce septennat, tous les composants essentiels d’une informatique moderne sont nés et ont atteint un niveau de maturité élevé. Dans la deuxième partie, j’anticiperai ce qui pourrait se passer entre 2014 et 2021.    2007 - 2014 : tous les composants de la R2I se mettent en place  Et si nous faisions un rapide retour en a...

The Nokia Ovi Store is leveraging (and paying 70% revenue share to) the large Symbian developer community to create new applications for its user base. At the myTouch 3G launch, Google announced that there are more than 5,000 applications in the Android Marketplace.

Research and Markets: 3G User Demand Analysis for 3G Content and Applications in Asia

DUBLIN, Ireland, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c14988) has announced the addition of 3G User Demand Analysis for 3G Content and Applications in Asia to their offering.
