PalmSource Joins the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum
Posted on 9-Mar-2005 08:41 | Filed under: News



PalmSource Inc. has joined the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum (CELF). The CELF is an open standards-based consortium of industry-leading companies aimed at encouraging adoption of Linux for the development of consumer electronics devices. PalmSource has joined the CELF as an Associate member.

PalmSource is the developer of the Palm OS, the operating system used by palmOne and other manufacturers on PDA and smartphones. The company has recently announced the acquisition of a Chinese mobile software company with interests in Linux development for mobile devices.

The CELF was established in June 2003 by eight companies, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., Sony Corporation, Hitachi, Ltd., NEC Corporation, Royal Philips Electronics, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Sharp Corporation, and Toshiba Corporation, to further enhance and promote the use of Linux in digital consumer electronics products. CELF now has over 50 members.

"We are pleased to join the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum and collaborate with other industry-leading companies and the open source community to advance the development of Linux-based products," said John Ostrem, lead scientist of PalmSource. "With PalmSource's recent acquisition of China MobileSoft and the Company's Linux expertise, we believe PalmSource is poised to make significant contributions to the CELF as it develops Linux- based phone software products."
