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
"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.
