ACCESS CO., LTD. has announced that its NetFront series technologies will now support the Android platform. The announcement comes as part of the company’s strategy to extend NetFront capabilities to any OS or CPU.
NetFront technologies, including ACCESS’ NetFront Browser as an embedded Internet browser, already support a variety of mobile platforms, including ACCESS Linux Platform, Symbian OS, Garnet OS, BREW and Microsoft Windows Mobile.
Leveraging its track record of working closely with its partners to speed time-to-market and develop best-in-class solutions, ACCESS will provide development services for its NetFront technologies running on the Android platform. These services will help operators and device manufactures develop customized user interfaces and pre-install value-added applications.
“ACCESS offers end-to-end solutions for converged devices, starting from the infrastructure layer to platform and middleware, to client applications,” said Tomihisa Kamada, president, CEO and co-founder of ACCESS. “Since this company was founded, we have worked closely with major operators and equipment and device manufacturers all over the world to help them differentiate their products and improve their competitiveness. This announcement underscores our commitment to provide our customers with technologies that support a variety of platforms.”
ACCESS will showcase its NetFront technologies for Android - including NetFront Browser v3.5, NetFront FlexUI, NetFront Widgets and NetFront Document Viewer - at GSMA Mobile World Congress 2010.
ACCESS also plans to develop NetFront Living Connect and NetFront Book Viewer EPUB Edition for Android and to make its NetFront products available to end users via web download.
