Certs 4 Less launches mobile app, Nokia announces new mobiles and SAIC wins Army contract

Certs 4 Less, a provider of SSL certificates for small businesses, has announced the launch of its new mobile application, giving users the ability to purchase and set up their SSL connection directly from their smartphone or tablet. 

Users will be able to choose from a range of SSL providers from within the app, before using its intuitive interface to purchase a certificate via PayPal; customers can choose from top providers including Symantec and GeoTrust. Certs 4 Less has worked hard to create a fully functional app, with customers able to take advantage of all the special offers made available to the full website users. 

According to company CEO Eric Holtzman, "we want to offer the mobile user a quick and simple way to navigate and select an SSL Certificate or Code Signing Certificate and then finish off the process with a no-fuss payment method."

Nokia has launched its brand new range of smartphones, following a no-expenses-spared event in the centre of London. The Nokia Lumia 920 launched in front of thousands of supporters, with the event also playing host to legendary DJ deadmau5, who provided a spectacular music and light show in London's Flat Iron Square this week. Nokia is pinning its future on the new smartphone, which is one of the first to use the brand new Windows 8 mobile platform. 

The state of the art device encapsulates a whole range of the latest mobile technologies, including wireless charging, a glove compatible touch screen and "floating lens technology," allowing users to take photos with five times more light exposure than the average smartphone. According to Nokia VP Conor Pierce, the Lumia 920 is "one of the most exciting phones we've launched."

SAIC, a company specialising in the development of technology for the national security market, has been awarded a major service contract by the US Army, with a remit to implement multiple operational support technologies over the next three and a half years. 

The contract is valued at $149million if all extension options are used, and will involve various IT design projects and repair services, ensuring that the military's IT services are running in a "timely, relevant and accurate manner." According to SAIC SVP John Thomas, the company is looking "forward to leveraging our strong relationship with the US Army… to provide reliable information technology design."
