China Mobile launches open source mobile OS
|02 сентября 2009|
China Mobile Ltd. launched an open source mobile operating system to help increase the number of handsets that can use China's homegrown third-generation mobile technology.
The open source platform will help lower the barrier to developing handsets that run on Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access technology, China Mobile Chairman Wang Jianzhou said in a statement.
The company said it will launch a TD-SCDMA handset based on its open source mobile operating system this year.
It said Legend Holdings Ltd.'s handset division, as well as HTC Corp., LG Electronics Inc. and Dell Inc. are now offering 2G handsets based on China Mobile's open source platform. Legend Holdings is the parent of Lenovo Group Ltd.
In fact, it’s the first ever mobile phone operating system designed by a 3G mobile phone operator and is called Ophone. The OPhone is a linux-based terminal software platform for mobile internet.
In conjunction with the announcement for the Ophone, China Mobile announced a number of Ophone compatible handsets from Samsung, Lenovo, Phillips and Dell.
Of the above Ophone handsets, those which support China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA 3G network will be launched in 2009.
China Mobile stated that by introducing the Ophone operating system, significant savings will be made on TD-SCDMA handset design and development.
