Mobile phone users will very soon interact with the first complete and configured OS, Convergent Linux Platform, announced by a la mobile. A la mobile’s Convergent Linux is the very first OS that allows a single software stack in binary form to move across different handsets. Its open nature helps the manufacturers to select the software mechanism and bring Linux-based smartphones and full-feature phones to market swiftly while tumbling development, testing and deployment costs.
Pauline Lo Alker, President and CEO of a la Mobile said:
a la Mobile is proud to be the first in the industry to deliver a complete Linux system platform for mobile phones at a time Linux is beginning to gain momentum in the mainstream mobile market. Harnessing the power of open source together with innovative development and integration, our complete platform offering will decrease platform fragmentation and help accelerate the industry’s adoption of Linux for mobile phones.
