Santa Clara, CA -- MontaVista Software, Inc., the leading embedded Linux provider for the telecommunications, mobile, and embedded markets, today announced a new release of Mobilinux, a product built to address key areas of development for mobile and wireless devices. Mobilinux includes tools to help reduce footprint, saving on RAM and Flash. Mobilinux 4.1 incorporates technologies such as uClibc, squashfs and DirectFB and developer tools focused on memory analysis, which allow for significantly reduced total memory footprint.

As software complexity increases, manufacturers are forced to seek out more robust software platforms that easily facilitate migration from voice-focused devices to much more multimedia intensive clients. Mobilinux 4.1 delivers an advanced, highly scalable operating system enabling differentiated and cost effective phone designs while giving operators the ability to leverage a single platform from the network to the device.

"Given highly fragmented market requirements, the ability to address a variety of customers by making small modifications or extensions to a common platform can reduce many of the challenges facing handset manufacturers today," said Hugues De La Vergne, principal research analyst, Gartner. "Linux is one potential way to address those problems that directly affect manufacturers seeking to achieve a degree of control they believe necessary to continue growing their business."

Mobilinux is an optimized Linux operating system and development environment, ideally suited for wireless handsets and mobile devices. Mobilinux is engineered with a focus on:

* Addressing handset manufacturer and mobile operator specifications through open and industry standard technologies

* Ensuring platform stability and scalability

* Maximizing battery and size performance
