Cambridge, UK – August 17, 2005 – TTPCom today announced an agreement to license the AJAR cellular applications platform to Motorola for the development of select low cost mass market mobile devices. The AJAR platform is designed to deliver improved productivity throughout Motorola’s product development lifecycle, due to its flexibility and scalability translating to accelerated time-to-market for these products.
As handsets become more complex and are designed to meet different consumer needs, it becomes increasingly time-consuming and costly for mobile device manufacturers to ensure platform consistency across their product portfolio. TTPCom’s AJAR Platform combines a comprehensive applications framework, a toolset for the development and testing of applications and a complete suite of applications to ensure that the select devices developed using the AJAR platform have similar, standard qualities. TTPCom and third party applications pre-integrated on the AJAR platform, include Java™, MMS, WAP2.0, digital camera support, embedded and downloadable games, and polyphonic ringtones.
“Feature phones represent the largest and most diverse segment of the mobile device market today. The challenge for manufacturers is to bring ranges of targeted feature phones to market quickly whilst minimising cost,” commented Tony Milbourn, TTPCom’s managing director. “This agreement with Motorola will demonstrate that we have addressed these issues as AJAR is flexible and scalable enough to support multiple models of mobile devices with unique requirements.”
