ARM Making It Easier to Develop, Deploy 'droid Devices
Open Handset Alliance member ARM, has created the Android Solutions Center to help make it easier for other companies to build Android-based handsets and devices.Â There over 35 members involved in the ARM Connected Community working to bring about Android gadgets, including Archos, Texas Instruments, and Zii Labs.Â
“As we have seen through the recent launches of handsets such as Motorola’s Droid and Acer’s Liquid, the Android platform represents a fundamental change in the open source ecosystem,” said Kevin Smith, VP Segment Marketing, ARM. “…The Solution Center for Android serves as a one-stop guide to provide developers with the tools and information they need to create innovative devices with applications that satisfy consumers’ needs.”
Android is going to find itself on a whole slew of devices from picture frames and tablets to DVR’s and digital cameras.Â Â ARM wants to get their processors into as many of these products as possible.Â Creating the Solution Center is a logical way for them to cozy up next to some of tomorrow’s movers and shakers.
