Thanks willgo posted
Here are my in the phantom family from a Virgin to stick, but MEIZU kerosene as a group of Red Guards, mania was, rational analysis regardless of right or wrong will provoke opposition.
Fortunately, this post there is nothing against it, but the sink, was also returned for CB ready. Related products, may also wish to draw, and explore new ideas.
First talk about my own situation: program development for several years in the computer and the Internet-related company, doing product design and business planning. 3 years ago I’d have a small company,. NET development.
About since 2002 started using PDA products, was a legend of xp201, plus wireless call back after the clip can send text messages, should be regarded as the most primitive family of Windows Mobile Smartphones. From that time until now, has been using PPC as well as SP phone, so for smartphones more or less experience.
For professional reasons, around many friends engaged in wireless communication, IT research and development, and telecommunications systems. Therefore, in meetings with friends talking M8, venture to speak today. The following, represents only the personal view, for discussion.
From MEIZU announced two years ago started M8 started to pay attention, to see today coming true, magnificent in terms of time and M8 performance can be seen the phantom family have devoted quite a lot of effort on this product. Before the M8 is not yet on stage, there have been words of reputation of the United States, was punctuatedby cheers. As you can see, MEIZU will celebrate his once again brilliant, J.Wong will be full of happy smile on the face of sth
However, for this product, I still have the following questions
First, the M8 location unknown
Whatever the product, service, and can adapt to all people. At the time of product design, it is difficult to design a have access to different ages, different professions, different loving people that works “tiger balm”. This requires that we meet most people as possible when designing the product requirements, and under features focused on positioning of a one or several categories of special populations. By doing so can gain market share as much as possible, and improve user loyalty.
But up to now, the M8 is very strange. We are not very clear to see that his customer orientation.
From the “smart” point of view, he seems to be more suitable for the high-end business executives. But in the existing system, does not see development software and services for this purpose, 2K plural of price and “business phone” identity truth.
Judging from the performance and screen resolution, he looks like a right for young people’s entertainment mobile phone, but in this crowd, has a very obvious not end up competing mentality and love the new and loathe the old-be fickle in affection. Whether Nokia, Sony Ericsson or other brands, product positioning of target customers in “young · fashion · entertainment”, all experienced a brutal test.
In fact, two years before the M8 unborn, follow up on the Internet, are two groups of people. Are fans of Microsoft’s series of Mobile phones, there is a class of kerosene is now called. They will become loyal buyers of the M8. But these people, much like a forum new posts every day?
I think, may wish to to divide the M8 version again. And 8G, broken down and there is not much significance. May reset function differently for different customer groups like: 16G version read “business” not including mass storage, increase battery capacity, even sacrificing thickness. Increase Office productivity software, providing mobile today-like interface, you can make notes, recording, memo, business card recognition, and so on. Even tailored Office information sharing, remote contacts, schedule backups.
Many people might say, you did not make sense, because on a Smartphone, so you can achieve this after a customer installation software. The actual situation is that so? After an investigation found that many of the so-called high-end users and will not be like the subway or Royal House a family of such products as entertainment appliances. For them, this is a tool that you can offer as much functionality, how much money they are willing to pay. Let them to install Mobile Office, install the firewall yourself? Murdered them.
In this respect, a successful example is gionee and Albert Henderson. I see lots of boss spend thousands of dollars to buy a brick sized business mobile, they recommend to their Smartphone, recommended Pocket PC, they are more interested in a few minutes, shaking his head at once – and too complex is too complex.
To put it bluntly, positioning for high-end users, that is what they need, what you offer. This process in the middle part of the customer will be ignored, focusing only on the results. Otherwise, even if core CPU VGA display, no significance for them.
In the low-end versions, positioned on youth and entertainment good. Now the configuration and price, is everyone in a consumer price, only JWong should be considered, on the premise of this price, the ability to profit, the ability to follow up product launches. Otherwise, there is no need to insist on the original price commitment–nobody expects the economic crisis.
In addition, the position of low-end products, or you can continue to subdivide. If production line allowed, can be modelled on the Dell direct model launched custom machine. For example WiFi module, memory size, color, accessories, and so on. Needless to say this way, if the customer demand, so you can increase the GPS module.
May JWong pragmatic used is not used to retreat, but a little more attention now, electronic products, many of them are in the concept. Our software products also can do custom and industry custom. For example, “M8 Student Edition” which can replace any electronic dictionary and learning machine. Said integrated GPS can succeed, GPS locate and send functionality via mobile phones also useful, this alone will have parents buy kids, his children to elderly parents, donkey friends long distance and so forth
To sum up, and now we have sold parts of the State. Product policy inflexible market crowd is not clear, that he lost interest in vain.
M8 ‘s operating system. In fact, right from the start, I really do not understand why uses winCE cores. Because no cell phone, so it is not clear how Microsoft authorized PPC and SP systems, when charges, but now worldwide Smartphone operating system there are many Microsoft to expand its market share has taken a growing development of strategies to promote their products. And, according to its product line, Windows mobile6.5, 7 will debut soon. Other smartphone on the international research and development production manufacturers also are without exception in the above system.
M8 why choose winCE?
As we all know, winCE is the location of embedded systems, industrial control equipment, such as ATM machines, and so on. While Windows Mobile was specially crafted for handheld mobile devices. PPC support touch operation, as long as displaying menus, and so on. While the Smartphone can have finished all operations in one hand. Obviously, Windows Mobile (WM) series more suitable for mobile development, but also to be supported by the subsequent upgrade support Microsoft and third-party software.
If I eventually abandoned M8 head arms of HTC Diamond, the only reason is that HTC uses the WM system, compatibility and stronger than ever.
WinCE system, should be compatible with winCE environment development program. However, according to multiple Web sites test results, the M8 is limited to the procedures relating to support. I suspect this may be associated with the M8 uses CPU, or associated with the test environment. Of course, I myself has not been closed beta machine, everything is inferred.
M8 to stage days of the original, the closer hope MEIZU provided as soon as possible enjoy the SDK comes out, so that MY and the ability of programmers to join the ranks of program development. M8 lives will be stronger or simply can’t see using advanced Mp4.
In addition to the compatibility of the software, I have a doubt about M8 always. Since the ceded and 8G, and so far, why does not directly support SD or TF card, give customers more freedom of choice?
There is WiFi on sensitive. Today see CB were made by the dedicated page above, the message content is JWong, that is to be introduced M8wapi. In this connection, I wrote a reply: http://BBS.Meizu.com/viewthread.php?TID=712740&page=5#pid7611997
Want to say is that WiFi is now a M8 of chicken. Tasteless be unwilling to cast away, wandering on the wire between the related legal and customer requirements, MEIZU seems dangerous. But go back and look at, using soft unlock method supports WiFi, not just the MEIZU. At any rate curve of saving the, under the current environment is dangerous. Unicom and moved the country, recently pushing the 3G wireless Internet access, if your phone supports WiFi directly, his business was how can we do it?
In the case of there is no formal ban, there is no need to eat this crab do–that is to put the WiFi removed? Do not have to. Set before the situation is to remove WiFi, product discounts. With WiFi, is likely to be the Ministry qiuhousuanzhang, then in addition to the products affected, the company may also be affected (you don’t believe me? Look at the company). So I think the delegate approach is to export: new companies registered in Taiwan or find qualified partners and launched with WiFi module product, sold by their brand into the Mainland.
This sounds very familiar–HTC is Ah.
Prospect of finally say a few words on the M8. Between now and the degree of attention and response, “the secret fire” is inevitable. What happens after that fire? We all look forward to JWong the smooth operation of the product, if not unity of the rivers and lakes, but also to place. But looking around, how many cell phone Giants eye covetously and cottage factories. In such a competitive environment, you want to test not only the quality and after sales of the M8 itself, more of its subsequent development and anti-copying capabilities.
A few days ago, shanzhaiji reported that the cottage factories threatened, M8 imitations will be introduced within a month after listing, in addition to the same resolution also use WM operating system. If the information is true, Dopod S1 before that it’s dangerous–after several months of high imitation, identification of products, even the professionals are hard to come out now. Although this is blatant illegal counterfeiting, but the more, cottage cargo market.
How to improve your ability to copy? Channel should also have a lot, for example-returning to that topic, since non-WM winCE system, may wish to develop software in the above certificate policy. By MEIZU premium software lets customers download technical personnel regularly upgrades in order to expand functionality (you can also select the users to develop better push), but this type of program must be licensed importers can only be installed when installed.
Well, how it feels a bit like iPhone sth
Me nothing creative, too late sleep.
My maiden post, put, MEIZU go all the way.
