Daca Nokia nu va lua decizia de a permite rularea de aplicatii Android in Symbian OS, iata ca pentru posesorii de smartphone-uri Nokia exista cum o alternativa numita Alien Dalvik. Aceasta noua platforma software permite dispozitivelor cu sisteme de operare non-Android sa ruleze aplicatii nemodificate facute pentru sistemul de operare al celor de la Google. In clipul de mai sus avem o prima demonstratie a acestei tehnologii pe un terminal Nokia N900 si sincer sa fiu sunt foarte impresionat de modul in care functioneaza totul. Compania Myriad sustine ca aceasta tehnologie permite rularea aplicatii Android fara a afecta performanta dispozitivului si dupa cum prezinta compania situatia, poate fi rulata orice aplicatie.
Android a avut parte de un succes extraordinar in ultimii ani iar o platforma de genul Alien Dalvik nu va face decat sa sporeasca atentia pe care sistemul de operare o primeste in ultima vreme. Sunt sigur ca majoritatea posesorilor de smartphone-uri Nokia ar dori sa poata rula aplicatii pentru Android si o astfel de platforma este ideala pentru ei. Acum Nokia ar face bine sa implementeze suport nativ in Symbian OS pentru asa ceva deoarece ar avea enorm de castigat. Dintr-odata “audienta” dezvoltatorilor de aplicatii pentru platforma Android ar creste considerabil iar asta ar atrage din ce in ce mai multi oameni la Android Market.
Myriad Announces ‘Alien Dalvik’, Enables Android Apps to Run on Non-Android Phones
08 February 2011
Alien Dalvik allows operators, OEMs and application store owners to create new revenue opportunities from Android ecosystem
To be demonstrated for the first time next week at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, Myriad Suite AV91
DUEBENDORF-ZURICH, Switzerland – 08 February 2011 – Myriad Group AG (SIX: MYRN), a global leader in mobile technology having shipped over 3.7 billion software applications on more than 2.2 billion phones, today announced the launch of Myriad Alien Dalvik, enabling Android apps to run on non-Android platforms. The launch opens up the Android experience to new audiences, generating new revenue opportunities for mobile operators, OEMs and app store owners.
Building on the launch of Dalvik Turbo, Alien Dalvik signifies Myriad’s latest Android innovation by enabling Android apps to operate on a much wider range of platforms and devices. As a result, operators, OEMs and application store owners can now easily access the Android ecosystem and deploy Android applications across multiple device operating systems, all without compromising performance.
Alien Dalvik enables the majority of Android applications to run unmodified, allowing application store owners to quickly kick start Android application store services by simply repackaging Android Package (APK) files.
From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik is completely transparent. Alien Dalvik applications appear as native and can be seamlessly installed on device without user disruption. All the user sees is that he now has access to a wider range of applications, thus encouraging a higher frequency of downloads and increased ARPU.
“The proliferation of Android has been staggering, but there is still room for growth. By extending Android to other platforms, we are opening up the market even further, creating new audiences and revenue opportunities,” said Simon Wilkinson, Chief Executive Officer, Myriad Group.
From application components to complete device integration, Myriad provides best-in- class Android solutions. As a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), Myriad has been playing a key role in Android solutions since its early days. When partnering with Myriad for Android application development or porting, operators, OEMs and application store owners will benefit from Myriad’s rich heritage in Java technology and unique Android expertise.
Myriad Alien Dalvik will be commercially available later this year on the MeeGo platform. Other platform support will be announced in the coming months. Alien Dalvik will be demonstrated for the first time on the Nokia N900 at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from February 14th-17th at the Myriad hospitality suite located at The Avenue, Stand AV91.
