Asianux Announces Midinux 3.0 Early Access Program for Intel-based MIDs


April 8, 2009 – Asianux, the leading Linux operating system vendor, today announced Midinux 3.0 Early Access Program for Intel’s next generation Mobile Internet Device (MID) platform, codenamed “Moorestown”, scheduled to launch by 2010. This program offers OEMs, ODMs, and ISVs an opportunity to access the Midinux 3.0 OS build, schedule, and features early in the development cycle. By joining this program, partners will be able to evaluate and develop software solutions for their Moorestown-based MID products and will have the opportunity to get early feedback from their customers.

Intel’s next generation MID platform is based on the Moorestown hardware platform and Moblin v2.0 software platform. This platform is designed to deliver a rich, Interactive PC-like Internet experience while supporting voice capabilities. It is designed to extend MIDs into the communication usage and compete in the smartphone market segment Midinux 3.0 is fully compatible with Moblin v2.0 with a rich UI and range of applications, which can be customized to meet individual customer needs.
Since 2006, Asianux has established itself as the OS of choice for the MID category and is used in devices throughout Asia, Europe and America. As a leading member of Asianux, RedFlag has successfully shipped MID products from Aigo, BenQ, Clarion, Gigabyte, Lenovo and SFR. These shipping MID devices cover a broad range of segments – from Information to Entertainment to Communication.

Dong Jia, chairman of Asianux and CEO & President of RedFlag said "Midinux 2.0 was adopted by a number of MID customers and has done very well in the marketplace. With Midinux 3.0, we are striving for continued improvements and are working with Intel to introduce it at the same time as the Moorestown platform. We are excited about the Early Access Program, which will enable our customers to accelerate their development cycle for Moorestown-based MIDs.”

“Mobile Internet Devices based on the Intel Atom Processor are receiving great attention and accolades in the industry. Our next generation “Moorestown” platform makes dramatic reductions in power while maintaining high performance and software compatibility,” said Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs in Intel Corporation’s Ultra Mobility Group. “Asianux has done an excellent job collaborating with our customers on Intel Atom processor based MIDs. Midinux 3.0 based on Moblin v2.0 linux and the associated Early Access Program will prove very useful to our Moorestown customers.”
