- Nokia N97's Massive 32 GB Storage and a SD card with 62 GB, thats make me crazy, but you have extend upto 16GB memory cards in Xperia Too.
- Nokia Gives the Maps with in. but still, u can Install maps for XPeria X1 too.
- I am little disappointed with the Camera in X1, I expected more from Sony Ericsson with respect to Camera.
- The Loudspeaker in X1, mmm grrrr...Need Improvement...
- XPeria's 800x480 makes remote desktop connections realistic for starters...
- XPeria is smaller in size,and its Processor is faster. The Keyboard is too good...
- 3G Games Like xtrak from Sony Ericsson, is much more for a phone, but still, there is 67000 free application to choose.
- In Battery Performance XPeria X1 Wins in my Perspective.

In My Views, Nokia N97 is a Great Phone I have ever seen, but XPeria X1 is a Computer. :)

Agile Killed CMMi ??

Lets Get it Straigt. I was a part of a CMMi 5 Company in the Past and I am right now practicing agile methods.

Lets be more simple and straigt forward, I feel Agile is going to Kill CMMi Practices as It grows !!!

Once opon a time I was also a part of Lengthy, Boaring, Sleepy CMMi Process Discussions..Which I feel is a dead weastage for skilled manpower in any sort of organization...

You are doing a Project and all you need is the result in Hand...if you are with me in this, u love agile methods...

See this, the Below items are the Goals and Practices for CMM..

Specific Goals and Practices
Generic Goals and Practices

Process Areas
1 Causal Analysis and Resolution (CAR)
2 Configuration Management (CM)
3 Decision Analysis and Resolution (DAR)
4 Integrated Project Management +IPPD (IPM)
5 Measurement and Analysis (MA)
6 Organizational Innovation and Deployment (OID)
7 Organizational Process Definition +IPPD (OPD)
8 Organizational Process Focus (OPF)
9 Organizational Process Performance (OPP)
10 Organizational Training (OT)
11 Product Integration (PI)
12 Project Monitoring and Control (PMC)
13 Project Planning (PP)
14 Process and Product Quality Assurance (PPQA)
15 Quantitative Project Management (QPM)
16 Requirements Development (RD)
17 Requirements Management (REQM)
18 Risk Management (RSKM)
19 Supplier Agreement Management (SAM)
20 Technical Solution (TS)
21 Validation (VAL)
22 Verification (VER)

An Organization is to satisfy / Achive certain goals and practices to get CMMi Certification and for that they have to make a hell lot of documents, process, metrix bla bla bla. Jesus 'F' Mary. Burrr..Look at the Wikipedia Link for this..

This is a Big Picture of that, Click on this link...

Inside a CMM Discussion room, you waste your Energy, your Organizations Pen, Paper, Electricity and Some Biscuts and Nuts if they provide.

Let me talk about some Agile..

You have a Project to Complete...

You Devided the timeline into spints, teams into scrum..

Each sprint is at the max 4 weeks..

Each Scrum team has 5 to 9 people...

We dont have a team leader here, but We have a Scrum master. he is just a facilitator, rather then a conventional 'team leader' who treats the employees below him as modern day slaves...I m not insane, It happens knew it !!!

Every activity that should be completed will go to the product backlog...(in a Excel sheet may be)

Scrum team will contain people with different skill sets.

Scrum teams will pick up backlog items from the on going sprint..

Scrum teams completes it, shows a demonstration of it at the end of the sprint.

The Manifesto of Agile is below:

Looks Good ?? is it ??..

I love Android (I have to)

For your Info Google captured 85% of Search engine market, yahoo and Microsoft's Bing follows. big companies are eying on multi billion Hand-held market for a long time. monopolys like nokia, Mototorola, samsung, Sony Ericsson and LG are the Five big companies playing around in this market.

for the couple of years people seen the big success of Apple IPhone ( they came up with IPhone 3G now, Its really cool, I am telling you)..

No Surprise, Google into the Mobile Phone Markets, and so far so good.

Do you know how many people developed this Android SDK in Google ? its Just 100 People. I am sure in the future 100 thousand people will be working / earning on Android.

Open Source is another Big Buzz Word for tech's now. they dont want to burn out cash for software's and tools and so on. and also they need to reduce the development cost's using good development tools..

In the Early days, We have one big gainer. for everything people paid to them. thats Microsoft. Now there is google. unlike microsoft, google is people centric. thats the only key for their big success. google's payout for ad-sense is the only example for this.

You might have seen, project teams are started working on Android Kernel and Utility Applications. most of you heard ' linux android' 'google android' 'google mobile operating system' meantime. You will be working now, or you will be working, in android in the future.

There are some Linux Phone Initiatives Like LIMO and there is a Palm's Linux Phone which is really good..Even Nokia / Intel announced One. Have a complete list from this link..

Fact here is, None of the SDK's are open to Public. For example in LIMO, companies that are involved in LIMO development 'only' exposed to the source code. but in Android, everybody can look into the source. modify the source. use it as you like. that's the biggest entry point for the great success of android.

Its got OpenGL, and It got a Nice In Build Media Player, and it got WPA Supplicant, Host Drivers and so On, so it makes developers life easy with in build applications and much stable code.

I used to do some small applications using Sun Java Wireless Toolkit, when I was a developer (in 2002). after become a tester, I did not got any motivation to do mobile applications, but now I am. I had downloaded android and started doing something...

yesterday there was a meeting in my team and Its been announced that we will be moving towards Linux and ARM11 Family Processors and Android :)

So I would like to share with you people...Have a Nice day...!!! Subscribe my Blog for Daily Tech Update..Did u see a button in the top ? which asks you to enter your email id ? if you do so, then it will take u to a page for verification...!!! do verify that you are a human and press submit :)

SkyFire on Fire ???


Most of us know, Its how hard (easy) to develop a mobile browser...especially people who had worked in IMode testing, can narrate a good story on that...

As we know, For a Mobile Browser we must have a rendering Engine, which renders HTML, Flash and Images in to the screen and so on, fact remains, its not as simple as tiny it looks.

I came across this SkyFire Browser, ( I have a Opera Mini in my Nokia E71, Symbion OS), and Its really won my heart.

To test its robustness, I did opened a big excel file using google docs, believe me, its really did loaded the document faster then I expected..

I had then watched some videos and so on, yes. its as good as Opera Mini and Apple Safari.

If you have a GPRS Phone and If you are doing still something on the Mobile Browsers, Download this as a test / reference application.

Link to Download it for free :

Its better that We test Our Browser Engine with Opera / Safari / Mozilla Mini and Skyfire.

I will vote for Skyfire !!! Skyfire Rocksszzzzzzzzzzzzz !!!!
