Solana Mobile just released an Android phone that will allow potentially billions of users to connect on Web3.
Solana Mobile, a subsidiary of Solana Labs, is a creator of open source software and a contributor to Solana software and the Solana protocol. Solana is a decentralized blockchain. The new Web3 phone is called “Saga”. Buyers can pre-order starting today. However, deliveries won’t be due until early 2023.
Reservations require a $100 deposit, which will be deducted from the final cost of $1,000. Developers will be prioritized so they can test Solana Mobile Stack and Saga.
Solana Mobile said, “Those who pre-order may be eligible for the Saga Pass, the NFTs that accompany the first wave of Saga devices, and the first ticket to influence the direction of the SMS platform.”
Solana Mobile Blockchain Integration
Android phones are tightly integrated with the Solana blockchain. The protocol promises, which makes transacting in Web3 easy and secure. You can also use it to manage digital assets like tokens and NFTs.
Anatoly Yakovenko is the co-founder of Solana. “Nearly 7 billion people around the world use smartphones, and over 100 million people hold digital assets—both numbers that will continue to grow. Saga sets a new standard for web3 experiences on mobile devices.”
Mass adoption imminent
In a recent opinion piece, Yakovenko stated that Solana’s active addresses have grown rapidly to millions over the past two years. “It is now the largest NFT platform and the most user-friendly on-ramp to crypto. Through a global community of developers who have launched thousands of different applications in DeFi, collectibles, games, payments, and more Millions of people are already using private keys to verify transactions.
“But every day, I hear stories of people leaving dinner parties, meetings, and vacations to return to their computers and sign important deals. Mints, exchanges, listings, and transfers that are vital to the everyday lives of crypto enthusiasts are moving us from Pulled out of the lives of others. The only companies with the resources to realize the self-hosted mobile future we all dream of, Apple and Google, have not updated their encryption roadmaps.
“It’s time for Web3 developers to start building for mobile use, not around it. The roadblocks to achieving this are clear: Google and Apple’s app store policies haven’t been developed for Web3 yet. Mobile hosting solutions are not there yet. Software Not natively integrated with hardware yet. Now is the time for cryptocurrencies to go mobile.
“It’s time for the secure, biometric-integrated hosted solution that we’ve dreamed of, but somehow failed to deliver on the mobile giant’s roadmap. It’s time for an app store managed by users and developers, to make There are no restrictions on cards or NFTs, allowing for a web3-native distribution model that was never possible in the App Store and Google Play. These features have technically been around for a while, so there’s no reason to wait any longer.”
Solana Mobile Stack
The Saga release also includes the Solana Mobile Stack. “It’s an Android framework that allows developers to create rich mobile experiences for wallets and apps on Solana, and a ‘secure element’ for private key management.”
The Solana Mobile Stack SDK is now available to developers.
Raj Gokal is another co-founder of Solana. “We chose the name Saga because the story of crypto is still being written. This is the next chapter in the story, and we believe that opening up crypto to mobile will lead to more adoption, better understanding, and more opportunity. “
Saga is designed and manufactured by Android development company OSOM. OSOM also makes hardware for companies like Google, Apple, and Intel.
Jason Keats is the co-founder of OSOM. “Saga starts from first principles to create mobile experiences for individuals, developers and ecosystem participants, ushering in a new era of mobile. The world needs novel hardware to embrace the future of Web3, and to build an ecosystem that looks to the future without the legacy of the past. The burdened ecosystem is very exciting for us.”
Saga has the security features of the Solana Mobile Stack enabled torrent library. “By adding a secure element to the device, Seed Vault separates private keys, seed phrases and secrets from the application layer, but still enables interaction with applications running in the device or mobile browser.”
