Up and Coming Tech Companies: Ones to Watch


September 3, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) The Linux-based Ubuntu operating system has long been praised by PC users for its ease of use, flexibility and robust protection against viruses and other security concerns. Now that stability and security is coming to phones in the form of the Ubuntu Touch operating system.

Ubuntu Touch


The Linux-based Ubuntu operating system has long been praised by PC users for its ease of use, flexibility and robust protection against viruses and other security concerns. Now that stability and security is coming to phones in the form of the Ubuntu Touch operating system.


Ubuntu is developed by UK-based company Canonical, who provide a range of services using their software to businesses across the world. Ubuntu Touch is another segment of their array of products, designed to break into the ever-growing smartphone and tablet market. Because it uses the same Linux base as Android, its easy to install it on Android devices, helping to ensure a large and ready-made user base. But it offers a substantially different user experience and set of features compared to its Apple and Android competitors, helping to create an innovative shift in the smartphone market. For example, because Ubuntu Touch is based on the same Ubuntu operating system currently installed on millions of PCs, its possible to transfer PC-based applications to an Ubuntu phone with relative ease compared to other handsets. Perhaps most useful for business users tired of carrying around a heavy laptop is the fact that an Ubuntu phone can be attached to a docking station to become a fully fledged desktop computer with keyboard, mouse and monitor support like any Ubuntu desktop PC.


Jolla


Another contender for the next big smartphone release comes from Finland, the land of Nokia with a host of new and exciting tech startups. Jolla (named after the Finnish word for "dinghy") are developing a new and unique operating system codenamed Sailfish OS, based on their work for the innovative MeeGo OS on the Nokia N9 smartphone. Co-founder Jussi Hurmola summed up the Jolla Sailfish OS as a fundamentally different experience to competing smartphone platforms such as iOS or Android, focusing on the user experience and aiming to create a smooth and optimised process. The first Jolla phone, announced earlier this year, is a dual-core handset with an HD 4.5" display, and is currently accepting pre-orders with an eye to expanding into the burgeoning Chinese market. Its designed to work in conjunction with an array of colourful cases that add a splash of colour to the phone and can even adjust system settings when attached.


ForexSpace.com


Forex - or foreign exchange - is an investment opportunity that has become increasingly popular in the last few years thanks to the proliferation of online tools and trackers that help investors keep track of their money and make sure their investments are working as effectively and efficiently as possible. Perhaps one of the most valuable sites for online forex is ForexSpace.com, a site that brings together up to the minute rates, news, analysis and - perhaps most useful of all - an array of helpful trading tools including a heat map generator that shows the most lucrative currency pair from a choice of 28, and a calculator for working out the impact of spreads across a variety of situations. Their section on Forex Trading Strategies includes up to date guides on the best ways to make the most of your money when trading in foreign currencies.
