ARM_Logo_hires Funny – ARM holdings looks good to us

Maybe Bernstein hasn’t heard of the IoT, then?

Cambridge based microchip designer, ARM, has come in for a bit of stick recently. Apparently a respected market analyst, Bernstein, has decided that the bottom has dropped out of smartphones. So this news affected both ARM and iconic device maker – Apple. This is intriguing because we can bet our bottom dollar that Bernstein never realised that ARM was founded as a result of co-operation between Acorn (the UK home computer maker) and Apple. Anyway, the good news is that there are plenty of positive signs for ARM. For starters, Xiaomi – the Chinese smartphone manufacturer enjoying major success in India, is a good ARM customer. And recently, Hong King based FIH Mobile (which makes the Xiaomi smartphones) forecast that its own profit will more than double. In the meantime, ARM has show that it knows the way things are going in the mobile world and is behind wearable technology as well as the IoT [Internet of Things] which we all used to known as M2M [Machine-to-Machine] technology.

mcmahon - IoT makes cameo appearance in budget UK budget would boost Brit IoT research

We’re not quite sure what ‘Intelligent Mobility’ is

Over here in Blighty [UK], the existing British Chancellor – George Osborne, has committed a future Conservative-led government to invest a whole pile of dosh in what it is calling ‘Intelligent Mobility’. We’re not quite sure what that term encompasses. However, the UK government reckons it focuses on “enhancing the development of driverless car technology and the systems required to implement and adopt the technology, such as telecommunications. Hmm. That could mean 5G. Anyway there’s £100 million for Research and Development into Intelligent Mobility up for grabs so get your proposal in fast. Oh, and there’s £40 million for demonstrator programmes; business incubator space and a research hub to develop applications for Internet of Things [IoT]. “Following the recent launch by Apple of ResearchKit, the fact that the Internet of Things has now made a cameo appearance in the Budget is highly encouraging,” commented Freddie McMahon, director for strategy and innovation with
Anomaly42. Continue reading

- clemmer Apple’s NFC supplier NXP to merge with Freescale

Ex-Philips firm to combine with ex-Motorola one

Probably best known in the mobile industry as the provider of NFC chips for Apple’s first Near Field Communication handset – the iPhone 6, NXP Semiconductors is set to merge with another chip specialist. The target is Freescale which is a former division of former mobile giant – Motorola. NXP itself was once part of the Dutch Philips Group. The driver behind this particular move? GoMo News thinks it is almost certainly related to the growing buzz around the Internet of Things [IoT] – formerly known as M2M [Machine-to-Machine] communications. NXP’s merger with Freescale creates a group which has a market capitalisation of roughly $40 billion. Continue reading

ringing - poulsen Guest Post: Connected vehicles? BYOS – Bring Your Own SIM

by Dennis Juul Poulsen, CEO with Tweakker

Billions of dollars are being invested in what is seen as the next big digital playground – the connected vehicle. And central to the mass roll-out of new and subsequently used connected cars and trucks is not just the sticker price, but having connectivity solutions embedded in them allowing the humble, network-agnostic SIM card to access the Internet from a vehicle at anytime, from anywhere, worldwide. Vehicle manufacturers believe that smartphones will change the way people use their vehicles and giant strides have already been made in making them safer, more fuel efficient and more fun to be in thanks to device technology.
