ARM Announces Support for Open Handset Alliance


Company furthers commitment to enabling the mobile web on its processor architecture

CAMBRIDGE, UK — ARM [(LSE:ARM); (Nasdaq:ARMH)] today announced that it will participate in the Open Handset Alliance. ARM has been working with the open Android platform for some time and is committed to delivering a rich mobile experience based on the platform. As part of this relationship, ARM will contribute its ARMv6 and ARMv7 architecture-based OpenMax DL libraries and insight on the ARM® CPU and ARK Mali™ GPU architectures to the Android Open Source Project

“ARM welcomes the opportunity to join the Open Handset Alliance and collaborate with its members who, like ARM, are fully dedicated to enabling next-generation mobile applications and services,” said Ian Drew, vice president of Marketing, ARM. “The Open Handset Alliance has delivered Android, a complete open source mobile platform that is an excellent enabling platform for ARM silicon Partners and OEMs. We will work closely with our OS Partners, such as the Open Handset Alliance, to ensure that they can take full advantage of the ARM architecture, and bring this revolutionary platform to market – enabling more devices such as the ARM Powered® T-Mobile G1, the first handset to use the Android platform.”
