Linux based smartphones coming next
According to linuxdevices.com MIZI Research appears to be taking on the largest players in the emerging third-generation smartphone software market with an integrated solution based on its MIZI Linux 2.0 distribution. Furthermore, the Korean embedded Linux specialist is rumored to have a development deal with an unidentified major consumer electronics powerhouse that, if true, could result in 3G smartphones based on MIZI Linux 2.0 receiving aggressive worldwide development, distribution, and marketing soon.

The first MIZI-based smartphones to hit the market will likely run on Intel XScale processors. "For the moment," MIZI says, "MIZI Linux 2.0 is optimized on the Intel PXA255 processor. It also supports Samsung S3C2410, 24A0 and 2440 processors, and will be expanded to support most CPUs adopting the ARM core."

What's included in MIZI Linux 2.0? MIZI claims that "MIZI Linux 2.0 provides a total solution including Linux OS supporting CDMA 1x EV-DO corresponding to 3G, cross-development environment, graphic systems, and various applications so that it will be much easier to develop Linux Smart Phones."

MIZI Linux 2.0 and its "Smart Talk" phone program support a variety of wireless protocols including:

  • CDMA
  • 802.11b
  • IrDA
  • Bluetooth
  • SD I/O
