Cloud-based operating systems are launched

  • Cloud-based operating systems are launched-

    So far mobile operating systems have followed their PC-based cousins, the structure for which was formulated when the Web was in its infancy. Consequently, with the Web having taken-off, for some time now industry figures have been talking about the potential for applications to run from a “cloud”. Google announced the start of new project, the Chrome cloud OS in 2009; and the latest is that it will be launched in early 2011. With network reach and reliability reaching a point where cloud-based solutions can be considered viable, and remote servers already being used to allow the mobile Internet and e-mail, we believe 2011 will see the launch of the first cloud OS for mobile.
