Listen to Verizon!

A lot has been written about this years CTIA, big news about new voice services, Skype on iPhone, Samsung presenting Android or not, bla bla bla. The most remarkable statement, however, was littled commented: Verizon committed to Mobile OSGi!

Talking about the carrier's challenge of supporting 8 or 9 different mobile operating systems, Verizon Wireless' CEO Lowell McAdam said that "I don't think I need to bet on an operating system, I need to bet on layers that will bridge those operating systems."

Isn't that exactly what OSGi delivers? A cross platform bridge for apps, services, APIs? A manageable middleware layer that reduces bad fragmentation while unleashing a particular platform's power? I'm absolutely sure McAdam alluded to Mobile OSGi, there's just no other way... ;-)

I also use GPS enable tracking system kit as in my car's security. As the vehicle tracking systems have sprung up in recent world scenario to cut down the duplicity of the matter completely.
