NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Earlier this week, Mobile Nations, an industry leader in mobile media publishing, soft-launched its newest community site -- Connectedly (www.connectedly.com), a premier site dedicated to delivering the best information and the highest level of community engagement for the world of connected devices. Connectedly joins Android Central, CrackBerry, iMore, and Windows Phone Central, in the Mobile Nations media group, which engages with more than 25 million people each month.
Connectedly will bring people the latest and best information about the emerging world of connected devices. The site will help consumers navigate the connected device space and learn how to use new products and services as everyday objects get smart and connect to smartphones.
"When we started Mobile Nations over a decade ago, we believed that one day every phone would be a smartphone and we now live in a world where smartphone use is incredibly pervasive. Analysts are predicting that almost two billion smartphones will ship in 2014 alone," said Marcus Adolfsson, CEO of Mobile Nations. "We are truly entering the post-smartphone era where phones connect us to the world in ways that seem to have no limits, and Connectedly will explore this next era of connected devices and how they will enhance our lives."
Mobile platforms are at the center of the new era of connected devices, which includes everything from smartwatches to smart thermostats to connected cars to toys and more. Connectedly will be the premier source for information on connected devices such as the Sonos wireless music system, Fitbit Flex personal tracker, Moto 360 smartwatch, Withings Smart Baby Monitor, Google Glass and more.
This new generation of connected devices and services will work with all major mobile platforms and Connectedly.com will be the ideal news outlet and help community for people who want the most from "connected life."
"The connected devices market is growing at a phenomenal rate. A decade ago there were 150 million connected devices and they were primarily desktop computers. Now we have 1.5 billion connected devices, with Gartner predicting there will be more than 26 billion connected devices by 2020," said Kevin Michaluk, Chief Media Officer at Mobile Nations.
"Many of these devices will rely on smartphones as a conduit to the end user, but what we at Mobile Nations find is that the connected device space is not going to be about which phone you use. The connected world will need to work with all devices, which led us naturally to Connectedly -- a site that all of our communities can be involved in and help us to build. Whether your platform is Android, iOS, Windows Phone or BlackBerry, you'll want to visit Connectedly often," Michaluk continued.
Connectedly continues the Mobile Nations heritage of going beyond traditional reporting on technology speeds and feeds, by offering greater insights, recommendations, tutorials and more from an engaged community of experts, enthusiasts, influencers and readers. Connectedly is looking for contributors with expertise and passion for connected devices and products. Interested candidates should send an email to [email protected].
Connectedly Site Launch Contest
In honor of the launch of Connectedly, a contest is being held throughout the month of May to win a number of prizes, including a Sonos Playbar, Philips Hue lighting system and Sphero. Connectedly wants to know what connected devices excite and intrigue the Mobile Nations communities. For more information and to enter, visit: http://connected.ly/launchcontest

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
