Texas Instruments To Demonstrate Android Mobile Platform
Today at Mobile World Congress, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced it will demonstrate an early look of the Android mobile platform in two forms: a prototype handset based on TI's OMAP850 processor that also includes TI's Wireless LAN (WLAN) and Bluetooth wireless technology solutions, as well as an OMAP3430 processor-based Zoom Mobile Development Kit from Logic PD. Both demonstrations highlight the flexibility of the OMAP platform's multi-core architecture to deliver high-performance multimedia and sophisticated user interfaces (UI) on the Android platform.
Android, currently released as an "early look" to developers, is an open platform for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications, is designed to enable developers to create compelling mobile applications that maximize the fullest potential of an OMAP processor-based solution while allowing handset manufacturers and carriers to customize their solution quickly. The UI on this mobile platform will provide quick and easy access to the most important applications on the device including web browser, email, messaging and video. Using TI's WiLink WLAN and BlueLink Bluetooth technology, the Android mobile platform features integrated connectivity options that allow consumers to seamlessly connect to exciting, interactive applications. These demonstrations of the platform highlight how TI is pushing the limits of the mobile market, driving development of creative and unique applications for mobile devices through the support of open source activities such as those sponsored by the Open Handset Alliance.
