OSLO, Norway, February 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Smarterphone today announced version 3.0 of Smarterphone OS, the smart operating system for inexpensive mobile phones. The OS was from the beginning designed to run efficiently on limited resource hardware, yet still offering smart solutions, attractive and intuitive user interfaces. Version 3.0 brings this concept further, being optimized for phones in the $25 to $75 price segment.
"Globally, there are 4 billion mobile phone users. Despite all the attention given to high end smartphones, the majority of the 4 billion can not afford such a device," says Egil Kvaleberg, CEO of Smarterphone. "With Smarterphone OS, inexpensive phones can be smart, too. Their users are just as keen to have easy and natural access to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as users of high end phones."
To demonstrate the flexibility and agility of their solution, Smarterphone will, during the Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, show 'Radial,' which is a fresh approach at reshaping the dynamics of the mobile phone human interaction. Audun Foyen, director of products at Smarterphone, says: "Radial is an option we offer customers who may want to differentiate in a certain direction. We remain equally committed to more conventional touch and keypad solutions."
Smarterphone felt the Mobile World Congress was the only natural choice for the premiere of Radial. "We are dedicated to MWC and see great value in attending the event every year," says Michael Orr, SVP Business Development and Sales at Smarterphone AS.
Smarterphone provides a complete and licensable software solution for mass market smart phones, Smarterphone OS, pre-integrating all software components and applications, enables manufacturers to rapidly create low-cost handsets with features and functionality similar to that found in expensive high-end smartphones. The solution is turnkey, whereby Smarterphone takes the software through all phases all the way up to carrier acceptance. For more information, visit http://smarterphone.com
