Aplix has announced that it reached a licensing agreement with NEC Corp. and Panasonic Mobile Communications on MOAP to offer integrated solutions for Linux-based mobile phones. The license allows Aplix to design and develop software solutions for mobile phones using the MOAP Linux platform co-developed by NEC, Panasonic Mobile and NTT DoCoMo, and to sublicense this technology to other handset manufacturers.
For Linux-based mobile phones, Aplix’s MOAP-based RI offers its customers a broad palette of functions as the RI allows other third-party middleware and applications to be incorporated easily and efficiently, while streamlining the development process and keeping costs down at the same time. Kiyohito Nagata, Vice President and Managing Director of Product Department at NTT DoCoMo said, “NTT DoCoMo has been working with NEC and Panasonic Mobile to develop the MOAP Linux platform for mobile phones. We expect that integration of Aplix’s middleware framework over MOAP will easily enhance further functionality of mobile phones.”
