Hash: SHA1

ARCHOS Adds Android Telephony to Mobile Internet Device

,----[ Quote ]
| archos-7This announcement out of ARCHOS is right up the alley of what I said 
| a week or two ago. The line between MIDs and smartphones will blur as folks 
| don’t want to carry both a phone and Internet browsing device. That’s 
| precisely where ARCHOS is heading with their newest IMT, or Internet Media 
| Tablet.

| Archos announced a portable media player (PMP) that incorporates Google's 
| Android stack for mobile telephony. Due to ship in the third quarter, the 
| Internet Media Tablet (IMT) is built around a Texas Instruments (TI) OMAP3440 
| system-on-chip (SoC), supports 3.5G HSUPA service, and offers 500GB of 
| storage, says the company.

| If you're looking for a nice read, something interesting to engage you while
| you sit and have a coffee and a pastry over at your favorite coffee shop,
| look no further than this writeup over at LinuxDevices. It's an excellent
| in-depth discussion about porting Android 1.0 to the Nokia N810, written by a
| guy who actually did so.


A Sprint Android Phone for 2009?

,----[ Quote ]
| Bloomberg.com reports that Sprint will be one of the first wireless providers
| to take advantage of the open Google Android platform and hopes to have a
| model available within a year. T-Mobile released the first Android-run
| smartphone, the G1, a couple of months ago.
| The site reports that by offering an Android-based smartphone, Sprint plans
| to take a bite out of the iPhone's market share. Apple's smartphone now
| commands 16 percent of the world's smartphone market.


LiMo Says Vodafone's Android Support Shouldn't Fragment the Mobile Linux Space

,----[ Quote ]
| Vodafone's membership in the Google-led Open Handset Alliance isn't
| necessarily a bad thing for the LiMo Foundation, which makes an open-source
| mobile operating system based on Linux that some see as vying for smartphone
| supremacy with Google's Android mobile and wireless stack. LiMo's Morgan
| Gillis says overlap among Android, LiMo and Symbian camps is par for the
| course as they combat Windows Mobile, RIM and the Apple iPhone.
| [...]
| Despite this hole, is Vodafone still backing LiMo? Absolutely, a Vodafone
| spokesperson told eWEEK, noting that joining the OHA means Vodafone will be
| able to work with the Android platform alongside other operating platforms
| such as LiMo, Symbian, Microsoft and RIM, improving customer choice.

| The Open Handset Alliance (OHA), which oversees the Google-sponsored Android
| mobile Linux specification, has added 14 members. New members include AKM
| Semiconductor, ARM, ASUSTek Computer (Asus), Atheros Communications, Borqs,
| Ericsson, Garmin International, Huawei Technologies, Omron Software, Softbank
| Mobile, Sony Ericsson, Teleca AB, Toshiba, and Vodafone.


Android Devices Likely From Sony Ericsson, Asus

,----[ Quote ]
| Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and Asus could launch as soon as next summer new, less
| expensive cell phones, based on Google's mobile operating system - Android.
| The companies have stated today their interest in developing devices based on
| Android, and joined the Open Handset Alliance together with 11 other members.


Android answers call for free smartphone software

,----[ Quote ]
| Google decided to create a better operating system for mobile phones, just as
| Microsoft’s Windows helps a user to operate a PC. Unlike Windows, however,
| Google’s software for mobiles, called Android, would be free and “open
| source”.
| The open source concept has been used in other technological advances ranging
| from web browsers, such as Mozilla’s Firefox, to operating systems, such as
| Linux. It means that programmers and developers can have access to the code
| behind the software, essentially its DNA.


MontaVista touts Android readiness

,----[ Quote ]
| To show off its Android chops, MontaVista will demonstrate the
| Google-sponsored Android mobile stack running on top of MontaVista Linux on a
| Texas Instruments OMAP3 system-on-chip (SoC). The demo will be held this week
| at Embedded Technology 2008 in Yokohama, Japan. Last month, MontaVista
| announced that its distribution had been optimized for the Cortex-A8-based
| OMAP3 SoCs.
