Microsoft and QUALCOMM Working on Platform Support for Windows Mobile
Posted on 5-May-2006 09:17 | Filed under: News



QUALCOMM Incorporated and Microsoft Corp. have announced a collaboration to enable the porting of the Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system to QUALCOMM’s Mobile Station Modem (MSM) chipsets.

The work will enable device manufacturers to develop Windows Mobile-powered phones with MSM chipsets while shortening their product development times. Support for the Windows Mobile platform on QUALCOMM’s highly integrated MSM solutions also gives users extended battery life while running a wide variety of business and entertainment applications, such as Microsoft Office Mobile and Windows Media Player Mobile, along with third-party offerings.

Microsoft and QUALCOMM are fully integrating and testing support for the Windows Mobile operating system with Convergence Platform 7XXX-series MSM chipsets from QUALCOMM, which feature a dual-core architecture with an integrated ARM11 applications processor and ARM9 modem processor.

The testing and integration speeds time to market by enabling handset manufacturers to more easily develop Windows Mobile-powered devices featuring the Convergence Platform MSM chipsets by removing some custom development work that would otherwise be required.

In addition, device-makers can take advantage of the CDMA2000 1XEV-DO and UMTS modem features as well as the hardware-accelerated multimedia capabilities, multimegapixel camera support, 3-D graphics and Assisted-GPS engines from the Launchpad suite of technologies integrated with Convergence Platform MSM chipsets.

QUALCOMM is expected to begin offering support for Windows Mobile 5.0 on Convergence Platform MSM chipsets in the second half of 2006. In addition, Microsoft will incorporate a new Board Support Package and Radio Interface Layer for QUALCOMM’s Convergence Platform solutions into future distributions of the Windows Mobile platform.

Phones leveraging MSM solutions supporting the Windows Mobile platform are forecasted to be available in 2007.
