ZTE Anuncia o Google Now Launcher, oferecendo experiência aprimorada para os usuários e maior valor agregado

A ZTE, uma das principais fabricantes de telefones celulares do mundo, anunciou hoje um dos primeiros smartphones pré-carregados com Google Now Launcher entre os dispositivos no mundo todo que não fazem parte da linha de produtos Nexus e nem da Google Play Experience para oferecer uma experiência aprimorada aos usuários além de maior valor agregado. O smartphone ZTE Blade Vec 4G com Google Now Launcher incorpora o processador Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 e aprofunda ainda mais o forte relacionamento da ZTE com a Google e com a Qualcomm Technologies na expansão do mercado de LTE.

A ZTE trabalhou em estreita colaboração com a Google para fazer o pré-carregamento do Google Now Launcher em vários dispositivos ZTE. O smartphone Blade Vec 4G da ZTE com processadores Android 4.4 e Snapdragon 400 com LTE multimodo integrado 3G/4G LTE foi projetado para oferecer uma melhor experiência ao usuário, a qual é apoiada por três modos (4G LTE-FDD, 3G UMGS /TD-SCDMA) e 9 bandas de frequência de rádio.

O smartphone ZTE Blade Vec 4G, juntamente com outro dispositivo premium ZTE, será oficialmente apresentado em uma coletiva de imprensa da ZTE que será realizada em Hong Kong no dia 24 de julho de 2014. A ZTE lançou o Blade Vec 4G e outros dispositivos premium na Europa e na China, e agora, os disponibilizará em Hong Kong com benefícios adicionais do Google Now Launcher pré-carregado nos dispositivos.

A ZTE planeja pré-carregar o Google Now Launcher em todos os smartphones Android 4.4 e modelos superiores que tenham o Google Mobile Services e o Google Play ativados. O fato de termos o Google Now Launcher pré-carregado no ZTE Blade Vec 4G, transforma o novo dispositivo na primeira solução de controle sistêmico de voz de terminal no setor. Zeng Xuezhong, Diretor-Presidente (CEO) da ZTE Mobile Devices, e Vice-Presidente Executivo da ZTE Corporation, comentou: "O forte relacionamento da ZTE com a Google e com a Qualcomm Technologies está alinhado ao nosso foco no desenvolvimento de dispositivos premium a preços acessíveis que tenham uma rica função de controle de voz, assim como soluções multimídia. A ZTE continua a ultrapassar as fronteiras e traz para os seus clientes a mais recente experiência que a tecnologia móvel pode oferecer."

No Smartphone Blade Vec 4G da ZTE, o Google Now Launcher vem gratuito com a função de controle e reconhecimento de voz dos emblemáticos dispositivos da ZTE. O smartphone Blade Vec 4G da ZTE apresenta de modo marcante as funcionalidades de comando de voz, inclusive de desbloqueio de telefone, discagem/atendimento de chamadas, reprodução de música, controles de navegação, comando para tirar fotos, etc.

Interface de usuário visualmente atraente

A interface de usuário (sigla em inglês, UI) do Google Now Launcher permite aos usuários adicionar quantas telas iniciais que quiserem, e os ajuda a chegar rapidamente aos seus aplicativos favoritos. Outra característica é o método para o usuário adicionar widgets. Para personalizar e embelezar um smartphone, o usuário pode selecionar quaisquer imagens armazenadas no dispositivo ou na nuvem ou ajustar a posição da imagem e pré-visualizá-la antes de salvar.

Acesso rápido e fácil ao Google Now

O Google Now oferece aos usuários as informações certas no momento exato. Por exemplo, se você tiver reservado um voo em uma companhia aérea selecionada, o Google Now pode lhe dar o seu cartão de embarque ou informar se o voo está atrasado.

Aparelho no modo viva-voz com uma palavra-chave

Ok Google permite que o comando de voz para o modo viva-voz seja acionado apenas dizendo "Ok Google" no modo standby. Diga ao telefone o que fazer, não apenas se limitando a uma pergunta de pesquisa, envie o texto de uma mensagem, obtenha direções ou reproduza uma música, e até mesmo crie lembretes e alarmes, e abra apps. Google Now Launcher suporta diversos idiomas, sem a necessidade de pré-configurar o idioma no telefone. Google Now Launcher oferece aos usuários uma interface simples e clara e mantém o Google Now e a pesquisa acessíveis a apenas um toque de distância.

Principais Benefícios

  • Interface de usuário visualmente atraente.
  • Acesso rápido e fácil ao Google Now.
  • Rápido e ágil.
  • Uso da palavra-chave “Ok Google” para abrir e acessar rapidamente o Google Search.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
