Samsung spins Linux/Qtopia phone?

Oct 24, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 4 views

Samsung and Eidicom have created what appears to be a Linux-based dual-mode camera-phone reference design incorporating Trolltech's Qtopia Phone Edition (QPE) UI and application platform. Photos of the device and its development kit were published yesterday by Korean news outlet photos include an Eidicom phone development board, as well as a rudimentary data sheet for the EW-700. And, photos of a very plain-vanilla QPE interface suggest the device will be marketed to mobile operators for customization/localization, rather than direct to consumers.

Additional features reportedly included are:

  • WiFi
  • VoIP
  • Browser
  • Messaging client
  • Music player
  • Movie Player
  • Microsoft Windows Media 9 support
  • USB
  • 2MP camera
  • PIMS with Outlook sync

Further details can be found in the story, here.

Trolltech did not confirm the EW-700 to be based on QPE by publication time.
