PalmSource and MontaVista Software Team to Develop Linux Mobile Phones
Posted on 10-Aug-2005 10:09 | Tags Filed under: News



PalmSource, Inc. and MontaVista Software are teaming up to accelerate the development of next generation Linux-based mobile phones.

PalmSource has joined MontaVista's Mobilinux Open Framework partner program; and MontaVista has joined PalmSource's Palm Powered Mobile World (PPMW) program. As partners, MontaVista and PalmSource can leverage their collective expertise to create integrated solutions for handset vendors and mobile operators looking to build Linux handsets.

PalmSource have recently acquired a Chinese company developing Linux solutions for mobile phones and declared its interest in developing alternatives to its Palm OS, currently powering the Palm Treo 600 and 650 models and a few other smartphone devices.

"Joining Palm Powered Mobile World enables MontaVista to work closely with the extensive PalmSource developer community and wireless ecosystem to provide the tools and knowledge facilitating development of innovative applications that leverage the functionality and openness of Linux," said Peder Ulander, vice president, marketing, MontaVista Software. "PalmSource, with Palm OS, has developed a leading mobile application framework. We look forward to working closely with PalmSource to deliver best of breed products that combine the best of the Mobilinux and PalmSource operating systems, making it easier for handset manufacturers to deliver compelling, Linux-based mobile handsets."
