Mobile Nations Launches Connectedly -- the Premier Site for News About the Connected World of Smart Devices, Wearables and the "Internet of Things"

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.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
