Open Handset Alliance grows larger by 14

The Open Handset Alliance has gained another fourteen members, which include the likes of Sony Ericsson, ASUSTek Computer Inc. Softbank Mobile Corporation, ARM, AKM Semiconductor Inc., Vodafone, Toshiba Corporation, Huawei Technologies, Ericsson, Garmin International Inc., and a few others.

These newest Open Handset Alliance members are to either push out compatible Android mobile phones, support the ecosystem through products and services that will accelerate the availability of Android-based devices, or contribute significant code to the Android Open Source Project.

This will probably mean looking in depth as Android on such mobile handsets as the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, Garmin’s extremely delayed nuvifone, and the Asus “Eee Phone.”

    From a 3rd Party developer point of view, the more device manufacturer’s that join Google’s Open Alliance just helps reinforce the opportunity for companies like DataViz. We’ve seen great success with our products on Symbian, Palm, Windows Mobile and Blackberry, and all of the platforms have different pros and cons.

    I think we are pretty excited to see what these device manufacturers come up with and hopefully Google’s innovation can be combined with our mobile productivity apps to benefit a new group of customers.

    As such, we have recently announced that we will be bringing our mobile Office suite, Documents To Go, and our Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync client, RoadSync to Android. If you would like to learn more and follow our progress, please visit http://www.dataviz.com/Android
