Intrinsyc Software, a Vancouver-based company with major operations in Redmond, said today that it has completed the production release of a mobile phone operating system based on the Windows CE platform for low-cost consumer handsets.
The product, called Soleus, is important because many of the lower-end handsets are difficult to program for because there’s so many different operating systems. By contrast, high-end phones that have operating systems, such as Windows Mobile 5.0 or Symbian, have a standard platform and are easier to write software for.
Soleus achieves this for low-end consumer phones without increasing costs.
“A key element of the Soleus platform is the flexibility and customization capability it brings to mobile phone manufacturers as they respond to industry pressures to deliver feature rich handsets to market faster,” said Intrinsyc’s CEO and Chairman Glenda Dorchak.
