ARM and six companies have announced a collaboration that will result in the development of a Linux-based open source platform for next-generation mobile applications. The ojective is to address the rise in consumer demand for access to the Internet and advanced applications on larger display mobile devices,

The collaboration, announced at the fourth annual ARM Developersí Conference in Santa Clara, California, builds on the ARM architecture and its ecosystem of Partners to deliver a standards-base platform based on Linux. This group of companies are all working to accelerate the enablement of truly always on, connected mobile computing (CMC) devices.

The new platform will be released into the open source community and will be naturally adopted by ARMís large ecosystem of software and silicon vendors, including Marvell, MontaVista, Movial, Mozilla, Samsung, and Texas Instruments.

This effort focuses on the development of an open source platform based on Linux, Gnome Mobile and Mozilla Firefox that runs on ARM Partnersí advanced systems on chip (SoCs).
