Schindler is moving over from a position as CMO of Saba, a human capital management (HCM) software and services provider. She was previously SVP of worldwide marketing at Linux phone stack firm PalmSource, which was acquired by Linux phone-stack firm Access in 2005. Schindler has also held executive marketing positions at Apple and AT&T, and began her career as a principal at Regis McKenna.

Azingo, formerly Celunite, launched its Linux-based mobile phone software stack, Azingo Mobile, prior to February's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Azingo Mobile is positioned as a comprehensive software/services offering for mid-tier feature-phones compliant with LiMo (Linux Mobile Foundation) requirements. The company is contributing some high-level tools to LiMo's common integration environment (CIE).

Based in Silicon Valley, Azingo has development offices throughout India, and employs about 250 engineers.

Stated Mahesh Veerina, Azingo's CEO, “Gabi's extensive technical marketing experience will be key in helping us maintain the momentum we've achieved following the launch of Azingo Mobile, the first LiMo-based open mobile software platform in the market.”
