Mobile Linux Could Open Door For Universal Mobile Torrents By: Eric Everson, Founder MyMobiSafe.com
As a mobile Operating System (OS), mobile Linux is quickly emerging as the platform of choice for next gen developers. As most developers are turning to the mobile Linux OS as an open source medium for content development and distribution, the platform presents a hot bed of opportunity for the development of Universal Mobile Torrents (UMTs).
As mobile torrents are in their forming days, the mobile Linux platform offers a glimpse of hope for developers. By nature the greatest hurdle mobile torrents face are OS incompatibility, which was less of a hurdle for the sister developments of computer-based torrents. As millions of computer users enjoy the use of torrents for file sharing, UMTs represent the same opportunity for mobile users. By their very essence UMTs represent a coming technology that bridges the vast complexities of inter-OS incompatibility by connecting all mobile platforms.
As the founder of MyMobiSafe.com, I recognize the security issues that such a technology represents to the global wireless community. Essentially as UMTs are developed and adopted the interconnectivity between handsets will emerge. While this evolution further creates unique mobile security vulnerabilities, it also bridges the chasm of interconnectivity that has long been absent in mobile. This technology is inevitable, so we should embrace it as we continue to grow our understanding of it. UMTs represent significant security risks if adopted by global users in mass, but the lack of their presence in the industry has stunted industry developments for years.
There will come a time in the not too distant future where mobile content will have compatibility across the spectrum of the wireless industry. UMTs offer the chance to bridge the qualities of existing platforms while creating unique development opportunities industry wide. The industry movement towards mobile Linux OS offers great hope for inciting the next stages of UMT development. While uniform standards are still needed throughout the wireless industry in adoption of the mobile Linux OX the organizations like LiPS, Google’s Open Handset Alliance, and the LiMo Foundation are playing pivotal roles respectively.
