EXECUTIVE BRIEF

TOP STORIES: AT&T trumpeted its success in the smartphone space, with reports claiming it has a raft of devices in the pipeline powered by Android, BlackBerry, Symbian OS, and Windows Mobile. NTT DoCoMo announced a wide-ranging portfolio refresh, dominated by Linux and Symbian OS devices, but also including its first Android unit. [pp.5,56,1719.]

Nokia officially launched the Ovi Store , with AT&T announcing its intention to support, but initial feedback indicated it was not polished enough at its commercial debut. Nokia is also ending its Ovi Share investments, having failed to gain traction in the saturated user-generated content space. Nokia Maps was updated, being rebranded Ovi Maps in the process. [pp.3536,43,53.]

SMART DEVICES: Google claimed there are “at least” 18 Android-powered devices in the pipeline for 2009 release, suggesting a sharp increase in the roll out of such smartphones during the second half of the year. Three flavours of the platform are expected to emerge, with differing degrees of “Googleness”. [p.20.]

Nokia’s device platform plans were in the spotlight, after claims the company is readying its first Linux-based smartphone — possibly driven by convergence between such devices and Nokia’s existing Linux-based Internet Tablet line. Back in the present, Nokia announced the Symbian OS-based 6730 classic for Vodafone Group, and the enterprise-oriented E52 . [pp.1317.]

Telefónica and NTT DoCoMo revealed an “open OS” handset partnership, initially jointly offering a Windows Mobile device from Toshiba. It was suggested the alliance could aid Japanese vendors in their international efforts. [p.27.]

Sony Ericsson rebranded its Symbian OS-based Idou as Satio , confirming the device for a fourth-quarter 2009 release. The company also announced Aino , a unit intended to integrate with Sony’s PlayStation 3 console, and Yari, a terminal supporting motion-sensitive gaming. [pp.24,25,26.]

HTC’s Android plans were in the spotlight. It was revealed that Magic is set to lead HTC’s international Android push, with far wider availability beyond its already anticipated Vodafone Group launches — China Mobile is said to be among those set to debut Magic imminently. HTC is also said to be readying new Android devices for AT&T and T-Mobile International. [pp.7,8,9.]

Motorola was reported to have a pair of Android smartphones in the pipeline for US release during 2009, with Calgary set for Verizon Wireless availability, and Morrison destined for T-Mobile USA. A lawsuit between Motorola and its former CFO, Paul Liska, reminded of a company in turmoil. [pp.11,12.]

Sprint confirmed it is to make available Palm’s Pre device imminently, with Canada’s Bell Mobility also set to offer the CDMA version of the device. There was continued speculation over Palm’s international Pre partners, with O2 UK now centre in the frame. [pp.21,22.]

Microsoft published a list of applications banned from its Windows Marketplace for Mobile store, including VoIP software, products that replace certain default applications, and products that promote alternative purchase channels. Microsoft was also reported to be in talks with operators over “white label” app stores. [pp.10,11.]

MVAS: T-Mobile Germany came out top in a local poll of mobile portal users, ahead of both rival operators and third-party content providers — in the USA, operators also led the way. Orange UK revealed strong mobile VAS growth, with increased use evident across its content portfolio. A limited mobile internet service was made available in North Korea, heavily controlled by the state authorities. [pp.49,50,51.]

Vodafone Group announced a plan to embrace the mobile internet developer community more widely, including providing a single point-of-access to its global customer base. China Mobile was reported to be looking for a 50:50 revenue split on applications it sells via its own store, a harsher deal for developers than the 30:70 now generally accepted internationally. [pp.3435,37.]

Ad-funded MVNO Blyk is reported to have refocused its strategy, with further rollout of its own operations curtailed in favour of becoming a mobile advertising enabling partner for existing operators. Vodafone Group trumpeted the rollout of its mobile advertising services, having undertaken more than 2,000 campaigns, and with services launched by 18 of its operating companies; its UK advertising partnership with Yahoo! is apparently in jeopardy, however. [pp.2829,32.]

Several German operators are said to be looking to introduce tariffs for VoIP use, as a way of protecting voice revenue while still enabling new services. Mobile VoIP was deemed a “huge challenge” for operators by analyst house Gartner, although it is more of a mid-term threat than an imminent one. [pp.54,55.]

Rogers Wireless and Vodafone New Zealand both announced Twitter support. China Mobile is set to extend the rollout of its own-developed social-networking service, 193.com, which is currently in beta stage. [pp.53,54.]

Sony Ericsson launched its PlayNow arena with movies service, providing customers with feature content optimised for mobile phones. [pp.4647.]

Telefónica O2 Czech Republic is piloting NFC m-commerce services in the city of Pilsen, in partnership with the local transport authorities. Philippines operator SMART Communications topped a ranking of m-banking services, compiled by ABI Research. [p.44.]

Orange UK is to support Nokia’s Comes With Music package with the 5800 XpressMusic smartphone, the first time the bundle has been supported in this country. Vodafone Germany launched a subscription music service, alongside its existing a la carte offerings. [p.48.]

Verizon Wireless and Sprint announced plans to offer the latest BlackBerry Mobile Voice System, powering fixed-mobile convergence services for enterprise users. Separately, Sprint trumpeted its fixed-mobile convergence products for enterprises, working with partners including Cisco, IBM, and Microsoft. [p.42.]

Yahoo! shelved development of its Yahoo! Mobile on-device portal application, as part of a strategic “reprioritisation”Yahoo! Mobile remains available via the device browser, however. Juniper Research said the “freemium” model will drive mobile value-added service revenue, with customers initially offered products free of charge, but then “up-sold” other products or content options. [p.38.]

MARKETS AND TRENDS: Apple and LG Electronics performed well in a survey of US smartphone owners, heading the smartphone and feature phone categories respectively. Research In Motion’s BlackBerry Curve topped the US sales charts, with Apple and Palm both seeing market share slide. [p.57.]

EXTRACT

AT&T claims US smartphone subscriber leadership…

AT&T said that “based on independent market research”, twice as many smartphone users have chosen its network over that of its rivals.

The company said that the “combination of the nation’s fastest 3G network and nearly 20,000 US Wi-Fi hotspots” provides internet access for “AT&T’s industry-leading line-up of iconic devices, including BlackBerry Bold and Nokia E71x”, although it omitted to mention its exclusive iPhone availability.

In addition to its smartphone leadership, AT&T said it is at the “forefront of a new category of full-QWERTY consumer devices known as ‘quick messaging phones’ that bring text and picture messaging, IM [instant messaging], and mobile data applications to the masses”. Combined with smartphones, the number of users of these “integrated devices” have doubled during the past year — nearly 32% of AT&T’s contract subscribers now use one of these terminals.

AT&T said it is to launch an advertising campaign that “highlights its smartphone leadership and illustrates the many ways AT&T customers stay productive”.

” AT&T made a big push to be the mobile broadband and smartphone leader many years ago, and it’s clearly paying off in a big way for us and our customers. We’ve taken integrated devices mainstream, and nearly a third of our post-paid customers use one. “
— David Christopher, Chief Marketing Officer at AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.

…with a raft of new AT&T smartphones reported

Engadget published details of a number of new smartphones apparently heading for launch with AT&T, dominated by Windows Mobile units from LG Electronics and Samsung. Also rumoured were an Android unit from Motorola, BlackBerry devices from Research In Motion (RIM), a Symbian OS device from Nokia, and Windows Mobile terminals from Hewlett-Packard (HP) and HTC.

Android

Motorola is said to be readying an Android-powered device for AT&T under the codename Heron. It will have a 2.8″ touch screen with vertical slider revealing QWERTY keypad, as well as a three-megapixel camera, 3G connectivity, and Assisted-GPS (A-GPS).

Separately, it was reported that HTC is preparing a device for AT&T, codenamed Lancaster (see separate report).

BlackBerry

AT&T was linked with a number of potential BlackBerry releases, several of which have been reported previously as being AT&T-bound.

Onyx and Magnum are traditional BlackBerry handhelds, but see the addition of 3G connectivity to devices with a more svelte form factor than the current Bold; the units appear to sit somewhere between Bold and Curve. Magnum is perhaps the more interesting of the two units, in that as well as having a QWERTY thumb board, it boasts a touch screen — a first in the BlackBerry line.

Engadget noted that as the latest Curve unit, the BlackBerry 8900, is still relatively fresh, Onyx and Magnum may not make their first appearance for some time.

Also in the pipeline is the first BlackBerry Pearl device with 3G connectivity, which will have a candybar form factor and A-GPS; no mention was made of Wi-Fi.

A 2G-only BlackBerry device with relatively meagre feature set, codenamed Gemini, was also speculated. Presumably, this will be positioned as an entry-level terminal in the BlackBerry portfolio, possibly supporting prepaid BlackBerry services.

Symbian OS

Nokia is reportedly readying a Symbian OS unit codenamed Mako, which Engadget said is “most notably…unlike anything we’ve ever seen Nokia make”. This unit has a horizontal slider concealing QWERTY keypad and personal digital assistant-type front face, although it is not a touch screen. In terms of specification, it was compared with the 6650 and E71x, with two-megapixel camera, A-GPS, and microSD storage slot — no mention was made of Wi-Fi.

Windows Mobile

Probably the stand-out Windows Mobile device is LG’s Monaco, or Pico, which is described as running “Windows Mobile 7” — however, since this platform is yet to be announced, and as Windows Mobile 6.5 has not so far been used in devices, this seems somewhat premature. The device has a touch screen and horizontal QWERTY slider, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and five-megapixel camera.

Listed with Monaco was a pico-projector accessory, which will enable content from the device to be projected onto flat surfaces.

Also listed for LG was a device codenamed HQ or Herald, which will have an interesting form factor, resembling a standard unit with QWERTY thumb board, but featuring Sure-type-esque two-letters-per-key format. It will use the WM6.1 Standard platform, omitting a touch screen and Wi-Fi; A-GPS and a two-megapixel integrated camera are included.

While not actually a smartphone, also of interest on the LG roster is Opera TV, which appears to be another device supporting the MediaFLO mobile television standard, used to power AT&T’s fledgling mobile broadcast services. This device is dominated by its 3″ touch screen, and has GPS and a five-megapixel camera; Wi-Fi is omitted.

Samsung is set to supply a device currently known as Pivot, which would be a successor to the current Epix device — similar to the BlackJack line, with QWERTY pad under a screen, but in this case including touch support. The device will include A-GPS, Wi-Fi, and a three-megapixel camera, and be powered by Windows Mobile 6.1.

HP is readying a device that was referred to as the iPAQ K3, with a form factor that resembles its existing iPAQ Business Messenger — QWERTY keypad under touch screen — the keys were described as “large thumb-sized keys for heavy email usage”. The unit was trumpeted for its connectivity options (triband HSPA and Wi-Fi) and expandable memory (microSD slot), and it also has GPS and a two-megapixel camera — non-camera units are also “possible”.

Unsurprisingly, AT&T is also set to gain variants of HTC’s Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2, which have been codenamed Warhawk and Fortress respectively — and availability is imminent. There were some interesting operating system details, though: Warhawk will apparently launch with Windows Mobile 6.5, as opposed to WM6.1 in already available versions, while Fortress will ship with WM6.1, but with a “WM7.x refresh” also suggested — although this is likely to apply to follow-on batches, rather than upgrades to after-market units.
