LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — CES — OpenMobile World Wide Inc. (http://www.OpenMobileWW.com) today announced its Application Compatibility Layer (ACL™) technology making all 300,000+ Android Apps portable to non-Android operating systems. Unveiling its industry changing technology at CES, OpenMobile will be demonstrating Android Apps performing flawlessly on Tablets, Set Top Boxes, TVs, Netbooks, and more. OpenMobile created its Application Compatibility Layer (ACL™) to unlock all Android Apps and make them portable to other Operating Systems. Currently, these 300,000 applications are only available in the Android operating system, leaving behind the 40+ competing operating systems. OpenMobile’s ACL enables OEMs to Break the Apps Barrier and ship their devices with a powerful App ecosystem. For the first time ever, OEMs can choose any device, any operating system, and launch with a robust Apps environment.
In booth #35484 at CES this week, OpenMobile will be demonstrating ACL running on three different platforms. Attendees will see ACL porting Android apps to Tablets, Set Top Boxes, and Netbooks on MeeGo, WebOS and Ubuntu. Coming soon, OpenMobile expects to release ACL™ for Tizen, Windows, Bada, QNX, and more.
“Breaking the Apps Barrier is critical for every OEM launching new devices,” said Bob Angelo, CEO of OpenMobile World Wide, Inc. “Hundreds of thousands of Apps bring millions of customers. We believe every device should hit the market with a powerful Apps ecosystem, and ACL makes that possible for OEMs shipping Smartphones, Tablets, Set Top Boxes, Connected TVs, In-Vehicle Systems (IVIs), In-Flight Systems, and more.”
OpenMobile was co-founded by Robert Angelo, a serial expert in compatibility. Once responsible for the team that opened the IBM PC compatibility clone world at Phoenix Technologies Ltd, Mr. Angelo then dove into the laptop/notebook compatibility market with OEMs at Systemsoft. Taking that passion for compatibility to the next step meant addressing the consumer device and embedded markets, hence the creation of OpenMobile and its exciting ACL technology.
Since 2010, OpenMobile has been actively developing its leading edge Application Compatibility Layer (ACL™) technology for OEMs. OpenMobile’s global engineering team spans the United States, China, and India. Globally they have spearheaded the intricate development of this project and have invested countless hours and years of industry experience in its architecture. OpenMobile’s ACL™ technology levels the consumer device playing field, enabling OEMs to break the Apps barrier and launch all of their devices with a robust Apps ecosystem.
OpenMobile invites all CES attendees and exhibitors to visit Booth #35484 to see the power of ACL™ on multiple devices and Operating Systems. Attendees will experience a wide variety of Android Apps running flawlessly on different platforms.
