Emblaze Mobile announced an agreement with Sharp and ACCESS to develop what it calls a design to set new standards for the next generation of mobile devices. Acording to this press release the device is a ‘result of over five years of design by Emblaze Mobile in cooperation with some of the best Israeli high-tech companies and it utilizes some of the most advanced technologies in the mobile computing arena’. The mystery unit is slated for debut sometime next year.
Searching for a bit of info. on these folks, since the home page is locked-down under construction, we managed to come across their Touch 7 unit posted last year by the Mobile Gazette. However, there is no comment about this on the ACCESS press page as of this posting.
Meanwhile, the company is involved in other activities such as Orca (IPTV) and eMoze mobile mail push and states on the product page that “Emblaze Mobile is building state of the art handsets targeted at niche areas where the giants are not playing”. We’re guessing, for fun, it will be a UMPC type device somewhat like this unit Sharp made for eMobile.
