Bitstream's Thunderhawk Symbian Edition Strives to Match Desktop Experience

Offers Split-Screen View as Part of Browsing Experience for Symbian Phone Users

Bitstream has released  ThunderHawk Symbian Series60 (S60) Edition. The company says that all new and current ThunderHawk users are able to test the software by downloading the 30-day free trial.

"ThunderHawk continues to provide a browsing experience that is closest to what users see on their desktop," said Anna Chagnon, President and CEO of Bitstream Inc. "Now many Symbian users will be able to take full advantage of the mobile Web with ThunderHawk's unique viewing options, while still utilizing the Symbian platform interface. The result is that ThunderHawk Symbian Series60 users can find the information they need quickly, easily, and productively."

ThunderHawk Symbian Series60 (S60) Edition complies with Symbian interface guidelines while offering the same features and functionality users have come to expect from ThunderHawk, the company says. It is designed to be similar to browsing on the desktop because ThunderHawk includes functionality that enhances the user experience in ways that other browsers do not, including:

* Multiple viewing options. ThunderHawk is the only browser that enables users to move between "full screen" and "split screen" viewing modes, making information easy to find and easy to read on Symbian devices.

* Effortless scrolling. Fast, fluid Web page navigation.

* Increased speed. Due to client/server technology, ThunderHawk Symbian Series60 (S60) Edition provides the fastest mobile Web page speeds available.

* The ability to read information on-the-fly. Compact transport format and progressive rendering creates a fast, positive user experience.

* Seamless connectivity. With ThunderHawk Symbian Series60 (S60) Edition, a dropped connection is re-established immediately, along with any data you previously entered.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
