Emblaze and Access Co Create Something Else

Access Co, which provides advanced software technologies to the mobile and beyond-PC markets, and Emblaze Mobile, a technology design house for mobile devices, have announced the launch of their jointly-developed mobile platform, Else Intuition, and previewed the Else, which is the first mobile device based on the platform.
Else Intuition combines Access Linux Platform v3.0, the companys flagship mobile Linux platform, with an innovative user interface and a suite of services provided by Emblaze Mobile. The companies say that the platform delivers a highly compelling and differentiated user experience, coupled with state-of-the-art hardware, accelerated 2D/3D graphics and elegant transition effects. The platform enables users to run multiple applications simultaneously, and switch between them easily. All data and content, including contacts, appointments, videos and photos can be rendered anywhere, not just within a single dedicated application, giving users faster, easier and more consistent access to their information.
The first Else, the first mobile device deploying the platform, presents a new category of mobile device that allows for a complete, fully-functional user experience. According to the companies, the device becomes the application, providing functionality that for the first time is able to match that of standalone off-the-shelf dedicated devices, such as digital cameras, top-ranked MP3 players, best-in-class GPS devices, and more.
The first Else is being previewed at Access Day, Access annual ecosystem and partner event in Tokyo, Japan today. The companies have already been actively promoting the device to top-tier mobile operators worldwide, and operator evaluations are currently underway.
Our vision is to create a revolutionary mobile solution that will change users experience in the mobile arena, says Emblaze Mobile CEO, Amir Kupervas. Imagine a device that is not a phone surrounded by gimmicks you will not use; where the camera literally replaces your digital camera; you get real-time push email wherever you are on the globe; almost every song and film in the world is one click away; and any one of its multitude of features is reached with no more than one light gesture of your finger and not buried deep inside folders within folders. If you imagine this, you imagine the first Else and the capabilities created with Else Intuition.
Our relationship with Access and the privilege to leverage Access Linux Platform has allowed us to fulfill our vision and bring it to fruition.
