Wind River releases commercial Android development platform
Embedded software specialist Wind River has released a commercial development platform for OEM vendors of Android mobile phones and mobile telephony firms. According to Wind River, the platform is particularly stable because the Android source code contained in the development package has undergone extensive testing.
Wind River has integrated several commercial programs from its partners, such as Adobe Flash, a multimedia player by PacketVideo and Android Over-the-Air update features, as well as a device manager by Red Band. The company claims users may quickly add branding, personalisation, and innovation. The platform is optimised for OMAP-3 processors from Texas Instruments, which are used in phones such as the Nokia N900.
The Wind River development platform is aimed at enabling OEMs and telcos to offer customised Android firmware for their smartphones without the need to invest in major development.
