"Hardware advancements and more powerful chips, such as TI's OMAP3 series, make it possible to create interactive user interfaces that support sophisticated visual effects and animation," notes Ars Technica's Ryan Paul. "ALP's new user interface takes advantage of these next-generation mobile hardware capabilities and OpenGL ES to facilitate richer interaction. It uses the Clutter toolkit, a GObject-based scenegraph system that is also used by Nokia's Maemo platform and Intel's Moblin platform."
"Access Linux Platform v3.0 delivers on Access' commitment to provide LiMo compliance to help OEMs/ODMs, operators and application developers reduce development requirements and time-to-market for LiMo devices," writes PalmInfocenter's Ryan Kairer. "Furthering its support for the LiMo Foundation and the advancements of mobile Linux innovation, Access has also contributed components to the LiMo Reference Platforms that will further ease the deployment of sophisticated and differentiated LiMo devices. Access' Strategic Contributing Offer (SCO) is a subset of Access Linux Platform v3.0."
