SMobile provides OS security for mobile systems including Apple iOS, Symbian, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and of course Android ... which just happens to be the foundation of Cisco's new business tablet, the Cius.
It just goes to show that in an interlocked, networked industry like our own you can so easily find youself competing against your enemies on one front, while aiding them on another.
The interpersonal relationships alone could keep an Eastenders scriptwriter in plots for years. And I think that's great; it's fun to tease vendors, as any reseller knows.
Of course, I hope - no, I'm sure Juniper's engineers will be able to resist the temptation to render the Cius so full of holes you could strain the greens with it.
And I wonder what OS will run on the anticipated Avaya tablet that I'm not meant to talk about?
