Radvision announced today, that Quanta Computer Inc. is licensing Radvision's 3G-324M Toolkit, with handset related add-ons and the ProLab 3G-324M Testing Suite Solution to design and develop a video-enabled 3G mobile handset.
If you don't know Quanta yet but you've heard about the O2 Xda Atom or Xda Atom Exec already - Quanta is the Atom maker and is one of China's leading developers of computers, storage devices and displays.
Quanta will be using the 3G-324M Toolkit to develop a handset based on Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system, running on an Intel PXA270 application chip and a Qualcomm MSM6280 baseband chip.
"Quanta's selection underscores the advantages of Radvision's comprehensive approach," said Adi Paz, Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing for Radvision's Technology Business Unit. "From initial reference design through testing, the Quanta group will be using Radvision's integrated solutions to deliver a handset with optimal interoperability to achieve reduced time to market. We are very proud to partner with such a significant player in the market."
"We were familiar with Radvision's reputation for quality and were impressed with the performance and capabilities of both the 3G-324M Toolkit and the ProLab testing solution. They provide us with both emulation of traffic and in-depth analysis," said Sean Wu, R&D Director for Quanta. "In addition, Radvision's active participation in standardization bodies ensures that we will always benefit from the most up-to-date technology."
It's not known yet for whom Quanta is designing this UMTS-enabled Windows Mobile device. Might be O2 Asia, might be HP or someone completely different.
