Infineon looks to make Linux handsets more affordable

On the heels of securing chip orders from Nokia to be used in entry-level GSM handsets, Infineon announced that it is also working with its partners to demonstrate that the capabilities of Linux need not only be applied in the high-end of the handset market, but can be used in the more affordable market segments, including for entry-level mobile phones. Infineon has partnered with Comneon, a supplier of protocol stack software for mobile communications and FSMLabs, the provider of RTLinux for real-time performance running on embedded systems devices, to announce they will together demonstrate a single core Linux solution on a highly efficient mobile phone platform at the recently opened 3GSM.
