Linux-based framework for mobiles

By   |  February 20, 2006

Access-owned PalmSource used the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona last week to announce its Access Linux Platform (ALP), the latest evolution of Palm OS for Linux. The Access Linux Platform is designed to be an integrated, open and flexible Linux-based platform tailored for smart phones and mobile devices.

Access’ hopes that its ALP will become the platform of choice for the development of high volume, feature rich smart phones and mobile devices for high performance networks, including 2.5G and 3G, worldwide. ALP is designed to provide a complete, consistent and customizable solution for handset and mobile device manufacturers and mobile operators. Access and PalmSource expect to make the ALP Software Developer Kit (SDK) available to its licensees by the end of 2006.

The platform includes the Linux kernel, an optimised version of the Gimp Toolkit (GTK+), streaming media framework GStreamer, and the SQLite database.

The Access NetFront web browser, PlamSource’s messaging and telephony middleware, and its HotSync technologies will also be included in the software stack. Access’ Max application framework is also included.

Where appropriate, open source components used in ALP are extended and certified by the Company. For example, Access and PalmSource will enhance and certify the open source Bluez libraries to provide ALP with a Bluetooth 2.0 technology compliant software stack.

“We believe that ALP combines best-in-class open source Linux components with proven mobile technologies developed by PalmSource and ACCESS’ Linux expertise,” says Toru Arakawa, president and CEO of Access. “As a commercial-grade, flexible, open, robust and standards-based mobile Linux based platform, ALP is designed to provide handset manufacturers with faster time-to-market while supporting the goal of operators to offer revenue-generating services, applications and content.”

The mobile Linux market is expected to grow from shipments of 3.5 million in 2005 to 28.1 million by 2010, according to the industry analyst firm Informa.
