Open-Plug Announces Telephony Capabilities for Intel "Moorestown"-Based Mobile Internet Devices
BARCELONA - Mobile World Congress, February 27 (ots/PRNewswire) - Open-Plug, the specialist in software development environments for portable devices, today announced that it is working with Intel to integrate its ELIPS Linux Telephony Stack to the Moblin Linux software stack for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) based on Intel's next generation "Moorestown" platform.
Open-Plug 2G & 3G Telephony Stack targets the growing number of telephony-enabled devices. It has been shipped in millions of devices designed by leading handset makers and has been distributed by some of the largest carriers worldwide. With its support of Mobile Internet Devices, Open-Plug is now bringing its advanced cellular telephony and messaging features to this new class of devices that enable users to bring the full Internet experience on-the-go.
The Moorestown platform is Intel's next generation MID platform designed to extend into Communication MIDs, which are expected to compete in the smart phone market segment with superior Internet based usages while also supporting cellular voice as a critical feature.
"We are very proud to be working with Intel and bringing our telephony capabilities to next generation MIDs," said Eric Baissus, CEO of Open-Plug. "This cooperation will allow us to play an important role in supporting the growth of the MID market segment in which we strongly believe".
Mobile Internet Devices are making it possible for consumers to carry the rich Internet-based experiences they are used to on a PC. MIDs are expected to come in a range of form factors, have a large display, integrate rich applications and services, and deliver an intuitive user experience. According to research firm Strategy Analytics, sales of Mobile Internet Devices are expected to exceed $17 billion worldwide annually by 2014. ABI Research expects more than 90 million Mobile Internet Devices will ship worldwide by 2012.
"Mobile Internet Devices make it easy for people to stay connected wherever they are," said Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs in Intel Corporation's Ultra Mobility Group. "Intel's next generation MID platform, codenamed Moorestown, in combination with Open-Plug's telephony stack integrated with a Moblin based Linux OS, will set a new threshold for making this connected experience a reality by delivering a compelling Internet experience while supporting voice capabilities on the platform."
As the MID category grows and penetrates the consumer market segment, the telephony feature is expected to become increasingly important. To enable the integration of this feature into MIDs designed by handset makers and device manufacturers, Open-Plug is actively working with the broader Moblin ecosystem.
Open-Plug creates and commercializes ELIPS, the first open application development environment designed for mass-market mobile phones. Already shipped in millions of devices, ELIPS enables software companies, handset makers and operators to create and deploy mobile applications, rich user interfaces as well as complete software solution, in record time.
Founded in 2002, Open-Plug is a private company financed by leading international venture capital investors. Headquartered in France, the company also operates in Taipei, Taiwan R.O.C. Open-Plug is a member of the LiMo Foundation (Linux Mobile Foundation).
