[News] Access Linux Platform Enters More Smartphones

Hash: SHA1

"Mini" smartphone design runs Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Access China and NEC Electronics are developing a "price sensitive" 
| smartphone reference design incorporating the "new" Mini version of the 
| Access Linux Platform (ALP) mobile stack. The touch- and 3G-enabled design 
| will use NEC's ARM9-based MP201 system-on-chip (SoC), and a future design may 
| use NEC's new ARM11-based Emma Mobile 1.    



ACCESS Linux Platform appears as small part of new Sony Cybershot camera

,----[ Quote ]
| The last time I posted about the ACCESS Linux Platform was in August 2007
| when some screenshots were shown at LinuxWorld. If you remember, ALP was the
| Linux-based operating system that Palm was planning to use for their mobile
| phones at one time. Palm then broke off into software (PalmSource) and
| hardware (PalmOne) and then PalmSource was aquired by ACCESS. ACCESS then
| created the ALP, which Palm was intending to use in their new devices. Palm
| then said they were working on their own Linux OS and we now see they have
| launched their own Linux-based OS as Palm WebOS. It appears that ALP is still
| alive though as we see it being a part of the new Sony Cybershot DSC-G3
| camera

| is the camera's software that includes, among other things, face and scene
| recognition, based on Busybox and Kernel 2.6.11 for the Access Linux Platform
| (ALP).

Does ACCESS threaten Windows Mobile? (Video demonstration & interview.)

| This year ACCESS released their first new platform with PalmSource. The
| platform looks like older Palm OS versions. However, it was developed based
| on Linux, provides true multitasking, improved graphics and single finger
| navigation. It has a number of other enhancements as well.  
| Third party applications developed for Palm OS devices work on ACCESS' new
| platform. So Palm OS customers can migrate to ACCESS without giving up their
| existing software. Palm OS developers can easily write new applications for
| ACCESS. Also, most of the existing 30 thousand Palm OS third party software
| titles can be purchased for use on ACCESS devices.
