Ixonos Demonstrates MeeGo Expertise at Mobile World Congress
Ixonos’ (News - Alert) demonstration includes an Atom processor-based tablet prototype, based on MeeGo v1.1, as well as the company’s application development, and user experience design and hosting possibilities. As part of its demonstration at the congress, Ixonos also held an internal MeeGo application competition among its employees that was designed to entice developers to build new applications.
The company claimed that the demonstration is only one example of its development achievements since the announcement of support for Intel (News - Alert) architecture handheld platforms in the end of last year. It is appreciative of the opportunity to showcase its MeeGo expertise and cooperation with Intel at the MeeGo Pavilion in the Congress.
Officials with Intel stated that MeeGo's open and flexible software platform on the Intel architecture gives mobile device manufacturers both the freedom and the powerful capabilities to deliver exciting user experiences. Intel welcomes Ixonos and other system integrators to the MeeGo ecosystem to use its deep software and solutions expertise to help manufacturers achieve differentiation and faster time-to-market.
Ixonos explained that MeeGo’s approach was to form a unified MeeGo Core SW Platform, which contains a MeeGo kernel, device drivers, middleware subsystems and common API components.
Antti Aumo, vice president of Global Solutions at Ixonos, stated that Ixonos is at the cutting edge of mobile, smartphone and smart device design, building complete and innovative products and services. Ixonos is a visionary partner to its customers, reducing the time-to-market of new products and bringing a full set of services from new product innovation to software development, mechanical engineering and electronics design.
The solutions at the demonstration will be running on the MeeGo and its predecessors Maemo and Moblin as well as on a variety of other operating systems on a multitude of devices.
