NEC to Integrate Trolltech's Qtopia in Medity 3G Mobile Phone Solution

Trolltech(R), the company that makes software faster to build and easier to use, announced the integration of Trolltech’s Qtopia(R), the unrivaled application platform for the efficient creation of Linux-based devices, to NEC Electronics’ Medity(TM) 3G mobile phone solution, a part of NEC Electronics’ platformOViA(TM) initiative.

This reference integration is the first step toward the complete porting of Trolltech’s newly announced Qtopia Greensuite #1 – a complete mobile smartphone software suite that provides customers with a pre-integrated selection of market leading partner technology on top of Qtopia Phone Edition – to NEC Electronics’ Medity solution on platformOViA.

The purpose of the Qtopia Greensuite- platformOViA reference integration is to provide joint customers with a solution that significantly reduces their efforts in targeting the rapidly expanding Linux smartphone market.

“We are thrilled to be the first 3G mobile phone solution vendor to profit from the strengths of Qtopia and the Qtopia Greensuite initiative,” said Seiji Mitsuoka, vice president, System Software Development Operations Unit, NEC Electronics. “Integrating a complete software stack with our best-of-breed platformOViA will expand our product offering with the aim of further easing the device development cycle for our customers.”

“NEC Electronics’ platformOViA is the perfect companion to our one-stop-shop software suite for mobile phones, Qtopia Greensuite,” said Haavard Nord, co-CEO / co-founder of Trolltech. “While providing the best of both worlds – the freedom of Linux and a pre-integrated selection of best of breed technology – our goal is to address growing market needs to get innovative, customizable devices to market quicker and at a lower cost.”
