BEIJING, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ixonos, a world leader in creating wireless technologies, software and solutions for mobile devices and services, will be showcasing the first in the world 3D user interface built on the MeeGo platform at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing on 12-13 April 2011.
Ixonos has developed a 3D user interface platform, which enables the production of highly-customizable, easy-to-use and engaging user interface designs on multiple operating systems for a variety of devices. The platform utilizes Rightware's Kanzi solution with stereoscopic 3D capabilities. Ixonos has built the platform from the interaction and information architecture up towards the user interface layer ensuring top-form functionality and stunning graphics.
"Utilizing thorough user research, technology savvy and market understanding, we are able to design sophisticated 3D user interfaces which offer compelling new ways for end users to interact and enjoy content in mobile devices. Engaging 3D user experiences are a substantial way for our customer companies to differentiate their product offering in the highly competitive smartphone market," says Sami Paihonen, head of User Experience Design Centre at Ixonos.
The 3D user interface technology showcase is the first in the world executed on MeeGo. It also includes Sony's Crackle video streaming service that Ixonos has been developing as a 3D mobile application showcase. "We are demonstrating how a forward-thinking company can embrace new technology in the further development of existing services to create better user experiences," Paihonen explains.
"Ixonos has a long relationship with Intel and the MeeGo 3D UI showcase is only one of our many ventures into the MeeGo realm since announcing our support for Intel(R) architecture-handheld platforms in 2010," says Antti Aumo, head of Global Solutions at Ixonos. Ixonos has solid experience in Mobile Linux and experts involved in several MeeGo development projects. "We are honoured to have the opportunity to showcase our cooperation with Intel also at the MeeGo Software Development Forum on 14 April 2011," Aumo adds.
"We are very excited to be showcasing our 3D UI for the first time here in Beijing, as this is fast becoming our key location in Asia. We already have two established service centres in China and we have recently extended our Device Creation Centre's operations to Beijing," explains Tomi Kyllonen, head of Ixonos' APAC Region. The Chinese service centres have a significant role in providing mobile design and development services to Ixonos' global clientele.
