Industry Leaders to Collaborate on Linux Mobile Computing Platform
To address the rise in consumer demand for access to the Internet and advanced applications on larger display mobile devices, ARM and six companies today announced a collaboration that will result in the development of a Linux-based open source platform for next-generation mobile applications. The collaboration, announced at the fourth annual ARM® Developers’ Conference being held this week in Santa Clara, California, builds on the ARM architecture and its rich ecosystem of Partners to deliver a standards-base platform based on Linux. This group of companies are all working to accelerate the enablement of truly always on, connected mobile computing (CMC) devices.
The new platform will be released into the open source community and will be naturally adopted by ARM’s large ecosystem of software and silicon vendors, including Marvell, MontaVista, Movial, Mozilla, Samsung, and Texas Instruments.
