Trolltech has released Qtopia Phone Edition 2.2, a Linux-based Voice over IP (VoIP) software solution for mobile and wireless phones and converged media devices.
Accoding to the company, Qtopia Phone 2.2, the latest version of Trolltech's application platform for Linux devices, also features performance improvements and enhanced user interface, multimedia and internationalization functionality.
Qtopia Phone is an independent, open software solution for Linux-based devices. It allows designers and manufacturers to develop feature-rich phones and other mobile and wireless devices, while maintaining complete control of branding and the user experience.
Currently more than 30 vendors are designing, building or shipping mobile phones built with Qtopia and related Trolltech software for embedded Linux, including Motorola, Cellon, and ZTE.
"Mobile IP telephony opens a new world of services that combine voice and data, and with Qtopia Phone, vendors can now easily build VoIP functionality into Linux-based devices," said Haavard Nord, Trolltech CEO. "Qtopia has been on the front lines of the mobile Linux industry since its beginning, and this latest version demonstrates our continued commitment to meet customer demand and enable the integration of cutting-edge features into Qtopia/Linux devices."
Qtopia Phone 2.2 is a turnkey application platform that lets manufacturers deliver IP telephony on Linux-based devices. It includes a reference integration of an open source VoIP application using session initiation protocol (SIP) and a framework that gives customers flexibility in their choice of SIP stack.
Qtopia Phone 2.2 includes additional updates and new features including support for dual displays, application transparency and animated graphical user interface for an improved user experience; additional SMS and email functionality for expanded messaging capabilities; live MP3 streaming and improved media player performance; extended internationalization and language support.
