MontaVista Linux handsets to be released in Italy

Santa Clara, CA -- MontaVista Software has strengthened its position as the leading provider of Linux for intelligent devices and communications infrastructure with the development of new advanced smartphones set to be released in Italy.

The two new smartphones, the iGO730 and the LinAP, have been designed by Italian manufacturer Enteos, a specialist in the development of advanced mobile handsets. Enteos, a supplier of handsets to OEMs and to network operators such as Italian market leader TIM, expects the products to attract business customers who require mobile broadband, e-mail and office productivity applications.

Enteos' products typically incorporate features or functionality that manufacturers of mainstream handsets have not yet widely adopted. The new phones combine 3G, Wi-Fi and VoIP capability. This combination of advanced functions requires a highly stable software platform that is scalable and enables easy application development.

MontaVista, which counts leading handset vendors such as Motorola, Panasonic, LG and NEC as customers, is the most widely used provider of Linux software to the mobile telephony market, and the fastest growing commercial operating system (OS) provider in that market. Enteos chose MontaVista Linux Consumer Edition ahead of the handset OS offerings from Symbian and Microsoft because it allows the easy porting of application code from multiple different application developers and service providers.

Examples of the applications ported to the MontaVista platform include Enteos' own Wireless Telephony Manager (WTM), a software module that acts as an interface between applications and the device's telephony engine. Because MontaVista Linux is an open-source product, Enteos was able to choose the way WTM would link to the OS. In doing the same with Windows Mobile or Symbian, it would have been forced to follow Microsoft's or Symbian's protocols. This would have made it much more difficult, and much more time-consuming, to get the same WTM functionality.
