Microsoft Windows Mobile-Based Smartphones to Run on Low-Cost Texas Instruments Platform
Posted on 13-Feb-2006 12:53. | Tags Filed under: News.



Amoi Electronics, HTC Corp. and Sagem Communication are developing new Windows Mobile-based Smartphones leveraging TIís OMAPV1030 EDGE chipset.

These Smartphones will be based on a lower-cost, high-performance chipset architecture for Windows Mobile device-makers, previously only available for feature phones.

Microsoft Corp. and Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) say until now many smartphones running on a high-level operating system such as Microsoft Windows Mobile required a more expensive dual-core chipset to power the rich user interface, data networking and additional personal and business applications.

Compared to previous multicore architectures, this single-core solution offers significant cost savings on the total bill of materials. Microsoft has its optmised its Windows Mobile software to enable smart device capabilities at feature phone costs, leveraging the TI OMAPV1030 chipset.

Availability of these handsets is expected within 12 months.
