Galaxy S3 takes world's best smartphone award [Business Daily (Kenya)]

(Business Daily (Kenya) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Samsung's flagship high-end device the Galaxy S III has been voted the world's best smartphone at the on-going Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The South Korean firm beat global brands such iPhone 5, Lumia 920, and HTC Droid DNA to emerge tops at the 2013 Global Mobile Awards.

The win tightens Samsung's grip on the smart devices segment where it also bagged the 2012 best smartphone of the year with its Galaxy S II brand.

The Seoul-based company was also named the best device manufacturer for the second year running.

The 4.8 inch Android-powered phone was launched into the Kenyan market in July last year and currently retails at Sh49,999 at Safaricom outlets.

Apple's iPhone 5 is ranked the world best-selling smart device, selling 27.4 million units compared to the S III which has moved more than 16 million devices.

Nokia's Asha 305 was voted the best entry level phone, continuing its dominance in the segment where it also won last year's award with its C3 model.

Nokia last year unveiled its line of low-cost smart feature phones under the Asha series which primarily target young users keen to access social media on the go, music and sharing content.

The Finnish giant has now turned to Microsoft's Windows Mobile in its high-end devices series dubbed Lumia. The top end Lumia 920 powered by Windows Phone 8 trades in Kenya at Sh54,999.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
