Wind River partners with Intel on mobile Linux

Device software optimization firm Wind River Systems announced it will collaborate with semiconductor giant Intel to develop an open, extensible Moblin-based Linux platform for mobile Internet devices. The Wind River Linux Platform for Mobile Internet Devices promises a full-featured, commercial-grade Linux platform including Linux distribution, middle-ware and mobile applications earmarked for the delivery of rich Internet and media experiences--per terms of the partnership, Wind River will participate in and contribute code to the open-source community project, and will also debut a commercial Moblin-based platform optimized for MIDs powered via Intel's Centrino Atom processor technology. Both the open source and commercial platforms are expected to roll out in 2009. Last month, Wind River and Intel announced a similar Linux deal targeting the automotive industry.
