Making Mashups Mobile Q&A by Intel, Amazon.com and ElephantDrive

Making Mashups Mobile Q&A by Intel, Amazon.com and ElephantDrive

Did you miss the Intel, Amazon* & ElephantDrive* Live Web Cast? No worries; Making Mashups Mobile is now available on demand at http://www.cmpnetseminars.com/TSG/?K=4DD&Q=428 .

Following are transcripts of the questions about the Intel Mobile Platform SDK asked by Web Cast participants:

  • William asked: Is the power transition APM or ACPI based?
  • Philippe asked: What is the difference between Intel Mobile SDK and Microsoft VS2005 and .NET compact frameworks SDK?
  • Suresh asked: Does SDK support Intel/Mac platform?
  • Xiaofeng asked: Is there any (plan of) support for Linux by Intel Mobile platforms?
  • Alexander asked: Will Intel Mobile Platform SDK support XScale platforms in future releases and are there plans for SDK to support Linux? When?
  • Alan asked: Will we be able to start back up as soon as more power is in place when not on battery will it be auto set or need to start it?
  • Rizwan asked: Does the Intel Mobile Platform SDK work on cell phones? Thanks.
  • Philippe asked: Re Intel SDK: Windows Mobile 5.0 support? when?
  • Rami asked: This is a question to Lester about the Intel Mobility SDK. Can you tell us more about the proof of concept Javascript interface to use the SDK APIs for browser based apps?

For Amazon & ElephantDrive Q&As, please watch the Web Cast on demand!

Vendor Perspectives NetSeminar:

Making Mashups Mobile Presented by Intel, Amazon.com and ElephantDrive

http://www.cmpnetseminars.com/TSG/?K=4DD&Q=428

Original Air Date:

Tuesday, August 8, 2006

9:00 AM PT / 11:00 AM CT / 12:00 PM ET

Intel Corporation, Amazon.com and ElephantDrive cooperated to implement a mashup that improves the mobile aspects of existing web solutions. Jeff Barr, an Amazon Web Services Evangelist, provided an overview of Amazon Web Services and shows you the possibilities created by these innovative offerings. Lester Memmott, a software architect in Intels Software and Solutions Group, gave an overview of the Intel Mobile Platform SDK and its benefits. Mike Fisher, Co-founder of ElephantDrive presented a real-life example of how their mashup, with Intels Mobile SDK and Amazon S3 APIs have improved their customers user experience for online back-up and storage.

Topics included:

Web technologies and techniques for mashups

Mashup/Web 2.0 apps for mobile users

Writing business quality mashups

This NetSeminar will be 60 minutes in length. It will be followed by an optional 30 minutes of live Q & A with our presenters.

I was the Intel presenter for this web case and I talked through the answers to these in the during the presentation. Here you'll find responses as well and if you have any follow-up questions please post them.

  • William asked: Is the power transition APM or ACPI based?
    • Lester: The Intel Mobile Platfrom Runtime runs a little higher in the software stack. It uses the OS calls to determine the power state of the system.
  • Philippe asked: What is the difference between Intel Mobile SDK and Microsoft VS2005 and .NET compact frameworks SDK?
    • Lester: Microsoft Visual Studio comes with a small version of the Windows Platform SDK which is C-based. (Note that Microsoft provides a larger Windows Platform SDK as well.) The .Net compact framework SDK is oriented toward managed code such as C#. The Intel Mobile Platfrom SDK supports C++, C#/.Net & Java so it contains broader language and runtime support. The Intel Mobile Platfrom SDK also is cross platform compatible. Currently we support Laptops, PDA and Phones with support extending also to tablets and UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) device as well. Another difference is that the Intel Mobile Platfrom SDK framework was developed with mobile applications in mind. For example the information is object oriented and well organanized making it easier to find the information a developer wants. Also both method-based and event-based APIs are provided to make it easier to find out when something happens (ex. regain a network connection, loose a connection, loose external power, etc) without having to poll for it. Finally, theIntel Mobile PlatformRuntime has additional features to monitor and control application network bandwidth.
  • Suresh asked: Does SDK support Intel/Mac platform?
    • Lester: Not Yet. It is something we've considered but have no plan of record to support it at this time. If you are interested in it, we'd love to hear from you.
  • Xiaofeng asked: Is there any (plan of) support for Linux by Intel Mobile platforms?
    • Lester: Not Yet. We have a proof-of-concept (POC) running on Linux on a phone. This is much like the Mac support. If it is of interest to you, let us know.
  • Alexander asked: Will Intel Mobile Platform S
    DK support XScale platforms in future releases and are there plans for SDK to support Linux? When?
    • Lester: For those who didn't know, Intel recently announced that is is selling the XScale processor line of products to Marvel. Currently it is still our plan to support it.
  • Alan asked: Will we be able to start back up as soon as more power is in place when not on battery will it be auto set or need to start it?
    • Lester: This question was made in reference to an application that ElephantDrive showed in the presentation. As a new feature developed with the help of the Intel Mobile Platform SDK, it would stop transfering data if the battery got really low. In response to the question above, yes, an application can automatically restart to send data based on any number of conditions depending on the one that is most appropriate. For example, the Intel Mobile Platform SDK enables the application to know when external power has been restored. This may be sufficient to restart the data transmission. If it is more important to know that the battery has been charged up again, an event notification can notify the application when any given level has been achieved.
  • Rizwan asked: Does the Intel Mobile Platform SDK work on cell phones? Thanks.
  • Philippe asked: Re Intel SDK: Windows Mobile 5.0 support? when?
    • Lester:It doesn't not yet support Windows Mobile 5.0. We expect this in our next releasewhich is scheduled for Q1'07. (Note that this datemay besubject to change.)
  • Rami asked: This is a question to Lester about the Intel Mobility SDK. Can you tell us more about the proof of concept Javascript interface to use the SDK APIs for browser based apps?
    • Lester: Rami is refering to a demo done at a Web 2.0 mash up camp recently and was originally in the abstract for this presentation. After further consideration we decided to focus the presentation on the technology that Intel and Amazon have shipping today and what ElephantDrive was able to do with it in a relatively short amount of time. We have no product announcements at this time for a Java
      script interface.

Thanks,
