Glasgow, Scotland & Libertyville, IL -- Motorola Inc. and Picsel Technologies Ltd. today announced a global partnership which will revolutionise Browsing on Handsets. The Picsel Powered(TM) Smart Phones from Motorola will for the first time deliver Full Web and Multi-Document Browsing, through a user interface which actively encourages the consumer to access more rich content on smaller screens.
Already available in China, the Motorola flagship A768 device featuring Picsel Browser(TM) is the world's first handset to deliver the Full Web and Multi-Document browsing on a Linux based Smart Phone. Other forthcoming handsets to feature Picsel's innovative solutions in 2004 will include the Motorola A1000 3G convergence phone, and Motorola's flagship MPX Smart Phone based upon Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS.
Picsel Browser, based upon Picsel's ePAGE(TM) Multi-Media Content Engine, will enable Motorola Smart Phones to browse the Internet with Flash, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint), and Adobe PDF - all without the need for content re-engineering or device syncing. Other variations of the Browser will include support for Video and the ability to mix and match a variety of content types.
Bringing the Mobile Web and other application content to life, Picsel's technology employs a unique suite of patented User Interface functions, which delivers an intuitive user experience on the smallest of device screens. Picsel Live Zoom & Pan(TM), a feature prevalent across all Picsel applications, enables the user to rapidly magnify content to any desired level and move the content page in absolutely any direction. Delivering control far beyond the expectation of contemporary UI models, Picsel Live Zoom & Pan is instantly customisable to suit a range of device input methods.
Picsel also introduces a variety of 'One Handed' User Interface features, which are set to deliver unprecedented freedom of content access to the mobile user. A first for Mobile, Picsel Mobile Display(TM) intelligently reconstitutes any type of content to fit the width of the device screen, while maintaining the integrity and rich quality of the original content page. A feature which is employable across all content formats, for example HTML for Browsing, MS Word, Adobe PDF, Picsel's Mobile Display empowers rich content delivery through simple navigation.
Another first for Mobile, Picsel Link Navigator(TM) enables users to swiftly travel through the content page, using intelligent sequential stepping of page hyperlinks. Allowing the user to quickly identify key areas of interest, Picsel's Link Navigator is adaptable to multiple device form factors and content formats.
