"We brought color to this dark entry segment of the smartphone market, which has long been focused on blacks and greys and simple nondescript phones," said Dan Dery, CMO of TCL Communication. "That not only means color in the real sense, but also color in the sense of variety and customization."

The Pop series comes in four different size variations and is about simplicity, not by restricting choice to one or two undesirable models, but rather by making it easy for customers to choose the exact color, shape, size and customization that suits them.

"Our motto when creating the Pop series was 'easy to use, easy to choose,'" added Dery.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts.
