eAccess and Intel to jointly promote Open Platform-based mobile phone handset

eAccess Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director, Chairman & CEO Sachio Semmoto) announced today that eAccess and Intel K.K. (Tokyo Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Representative Directors and Co-Presidents Greg Pearson and Kazumasa Yoshida) have agreed to cooperate in the development of mobile phone handsets for W-CDMA in the 1.7GHz band.

eAccess and Intel will jointly consider the specifications for the mobile phone handset with a processor based on the Intel XScale microarchitecture.

This mobile phone handset will adopt the "Open Platform" concept using the multipurpose processor and versatile operating system based on the Intel XScale microarchitecture. This enables users to easily install their desired applications, and dramatically enhancing the user-friendliness of mobile phones.

The new mobile phone handset uses inter-operative applications and hardware, which allow software vendors and mobile phone handset makers to reduce the development time and cost of applications and hardware.

The mobile phone handset, to be jointly developed by eAccess and Intel, is expected to be the first in Japan to adopt the Open Platform concept using the Intel XScale microarchitecture technology.

The Intel XScale microarchitecture is technology developed by Intel for low power consumption and high performance processing for a wide range of mobile devices, including mobile phone handsets. Multipurpose processors based on the Intel XScale microarchitecture are compatible with a variety of operating systems, enabling the development of applications simple and suitable to Open Platform-based mobile phone handsets.
