Music phone has TTPCom protocol stack and Intel processor

TTPCom, the leading independent supplier of digital wireless technology, today announces the first volume shipment of handsets to result from its collaboration with Intel. The first phones, launched this month in O2 shops in the UK are based on TTPCom's industry leading protocol stack and Intel’s advanced 2.5 G cellular platform. The handset, called the O2 XM, is a GSM/ GPRS dedicated music device, which includes MP3, 1.3mega pixel camera, progressive download and Java capability.

Ian Clarke, Head of Devices at O2 comments: "We are delighted to launch the O2 XM – our high quality music phone – which takes full advantage of the powerful combination of TTPCom’s industry-leading protocol stack and Intel’s high performance processor technology. We have previously launched many O2 products that use the TTPCom protocol stack – this latest implementation in the O2 XM is the proof that TTPCom’s multi-platform strategy is now a reality.”

Richard Walker, director of TTPCom's software business unit adds: "We strongly believe in delivering choice and efficiency to the industry. This latest handset shipment demonstrates that our warranted software is now also proven on Intel chipsets. Our philosophy, to offer the same proven protocol software across multiple platforms, enables operators to reduce the burden of interoperability testing whilst maintaining diversity of supply.”
