NVIDIA announces WiMo5 multimedia platform


More news from Computex 2006 in Taipei. This time, we hear from graphics giant NVIDIA corporation, but they’re not chatting us up about the latest graphics card, instead the company has announced the availability of a Windows Mobile 5.0 platform designed to optimize the user’s multimedia experience.

Already found in such devices as the Samsung i830 smartphone, Modeo DVB-H smartphone, and iRiver G10 portable gaming machine, the NVIDIA MobileMedia Platform allows “manufacturers to rapidly design and release digital, media-rich devices with Windows Mobile 5.0.”

Think of it as a device maker in a box, it seems, because this development kit contains “all the hardware and software components.” They’re calling it “a complete solution for device manufacturers: Just piece it together like Lego.

Cell phone makers can speed up the development process and get the juicy hot handsets onto the market faster, complete with “smooth Digital TV and video”, “incredible 3D graphics for gaming”, and “high fidelity audio.”
