Mike Walkley of Conaccord recently conducted a study which showed that the iPhone 4S was the best selling smartphone in the month of March in the U.S. even though iOS and Android are falling.

In the U.S. the best selling smartphone in the month of March was the iPhone 4S

Here are the statements of Mike Walkley:

Our checks indicated sales trend in March compared to the best levels of February with an increase in sales compared to a slow start at the beginning of 2012.

In March, our audits have shown how the iPhone 4S has remained the best selling smartphone in the U.S. market and Samsung has seen as increase its market share while increasing the penetration of smartphones in the channels propagate in the United States.

Analyzing the results of the smartphone competitors, the Samsung Galaxy S II came in second place with AT & T and Sprint, however, the resulting best-selling T-Mobile, which currently does not provide the operator buying the iPhone. As for Verizon, the second place was occupied by the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX, while the HTC Amaze came in second place with T-Mobile.

Motorola Mobility produces Smartphone with VMware virtualizer

Motorola Mobility follows in the footsteps of Samsung and LG adding compatibility for VMware. The move was decided to push products to the Motorola business users. The VMware client for Android smartphones allows users to change the mode of use of their equipment functions between open that can be used for personal purposes, and those devoted specifically to the work, which includes then the app for productivity and communication test malware.

Motorola did not disclose other details about this initiative, such as which are the models on which VMware’s hypervisor is present or when we will see this change, but it seems that VMware is preparing for the official announcement of the partnership with Motorola as soon as possible. A spokesman for VMware has announced that the announcement of other partners, after LG and Samsung, will take place during this month.

The virtualization of the smartphone to make this duality on the same device, and have the opportunity to run a software absolutely secure and tamper-resistant, however, has the contra-indications: for example, it is unlikely that a home user might be interested in this kind of offer. People used to go from one app to another very quickly: if for some functions are constantly asking them to make a login account with the business, many will soon cease to use such a system.
The interesting part is, however, represented by the so-called option dual billing, which could be achieved when the company pays a portion of the device that is delivered to the user-dependent, leaving him free to use the open Android smartphones of their own, and part of the business, funded by the employer.

An alternative solution to that is provided by VMware products 3LM, a company acquired by Motorola a few years ago whose job is to ensure that transmissions between Android devices and the servers of companies. The service also includes the ability to encrypt every transmission from the device and to the ability to create black and white list.

How do you spy on your smartphone from 60 meters

Just a next-generation software and a remote camera to recognize what you type on the touchscreen. Period of great creativity in the world of espionage. After the software that reads what you type on a physical keyboard, the researchers discovered a technique, quickly turned into software, to identify what is happening on a touchscreen display up to a distance of 60 meters.

The trick, as explained by Jan-Michael Frahm, a student of the University of North Carolina at Chapero Hill, is filming the display of the victim, as he writes on the virtual keyboard. At this stage, in fact, the letters are magnified, that is magnified on the screen with a graphic effect that encloses a kind comic balloon. It is not directly recognize the letter is sufficient to analyze the position of the balloon on the screen to discover it. To implement the diabolical plan just another smartphone, equipped with video recording function, although the poor resolution agrees not to exceed a distance of about three meters. With a powerful camera, or SLR camera instead, you get even 60 meters. The condition is to be preferred of course behind the victim, but it seems that the trick also works by analyzing the reflection of a window display, up to distances about 12 meters. And no, not slip into the victim’s home, think about how many windows there are fine in airports, train stations and conference rooms.

Researchers are not certain of fools, and they also noticed that adjacent letters in the keyboard, such as E and R, have overlapping balloon. So the spy program, which is called iSpy, a function approximation that incorporates c’azzecca in 90% of cases. Recognized letters, iSpy is then able to identify and then words, then sentences, and then all the facts you write your smartphone amiably. Including the Access Credentials (read “user names” and “password”) to your online account. Personally I do not think that now we will be invaded by individuals willing to spy on us, but the fact remains that some persons, with a much privacy at risk, would do well to wait for the next plane only reading a good book.
