BW: Trolltech to Partner With Ericsson to Provide Linux GUI Solution for Cordless Screen Phone

Aug 08, 2000, 02:08 (0 Talkback[s])

"Trolltech today announced a partnership with Ericsson Home Communications (Nasdaq:ERICY). Ericsson will use Trolltech's Qt/Embedded as the graphical user interface (GUI) solution for their upcoming Cordless Screen Phone, the Linux-based HS210."

"Qt/Embedded is Trolltech's new graphical user interface system for embedded Linux. It is based on the popular and well-proven cross-platform development tool Qt for desktop Linux, Unix and Microsoft Windows. Qt lets developers write the source code once and target a wide range of platforms. Ericsson's familiarity with desktop Qt allowed an easy transition to Qt/Embedded."

"Ericsson's Cordless Screen Phone will provide convergence of datacom and telecom technologies into a compact, portable touch screen and small base station. In addition to being a cordless phone with an answering machine and messaging center, it will provide web browsing and email access. Ericsson will use Bluetooth wireless communication technology to enable the cordless element of the HS210."
