Largest Independent Design House Uses Qtopia Technology for its Newest Linux-Based Handset Platform
Trolltech, provider of leading technologies for Linux and cross-platform software development, today announced that its Qtopia software for Linux-based mobile phones is the application development foundation for Cellon International’s new C8000 handset platform. Cellon International, the world’s largest independent design house for wireless devices, has used Qtopia to build, customize and extend the Linux-based software applications and graphical user interface (GUI) for the C8000.

“Cellon produces handsets for some of the largest and most well-known brands in the world, including Alcatel, Philips and Siemens, and we are honored that they selected Trolltech’s mobile application platform for their Linux-based phone design,” said Trolltech CEO Haavard Nord. “Linux is an ideal operating system for Cellon’s complex, full-featured phones, and Qtopia gives them a proven technology for developing customized, innovative applications and user interfaces for this platform.”
