Bluestreak Technology and Open-Plug Join Together to Showcase Cutting Flash® Graphics to Mass-Market Mobile Phones

CTIA IT & Wireless Demo Shows Successful Integration of MachBlue and ELIPS

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2007) - CTIA IT & Wireless -- Bluestreak Technology and Open-Plug have combined their efforts to create applications that showcase cutting edge Flash graphics to mass-market mobile phones.

Open-Plug creates and commercializes the first open software framework and MMI designed for mass-market phones. Bluestreak Technology is the developer of the MachBlue™ platform for mobile phones and digital television. The companies joined forces to create in record time a demonstration leveraging the strength of their respective products.

The Open-Plug ELIPS Product Suite relies on a unique component technology, which drastically simplifies and secures all the phases of mobile phone software development, integration and deployment. It enables mobile operators and handset makers to create, update and customize their phones in record time, while keeping full control over their design and development cycle.

Bluestreak has developed the MachBlue platform to enable operators and OEMs to bring cutting edge Flash-based applications to mobile devices, including mobile TV and Event-based Services.

In less than six weeks, the integration of the MachBlue graphical engine on ELIPS was completed, with impressive levels of performance. The MMI of the device has been developed independently and integrated in a matter of a few days. The overall performance of the integrated flash based MMI is to be highlighted. The overall integration time is also a performance by itself.

With this demonstration, both companies are confident that they hold the key to bringing richer content to high volume, affordable handsets resulting in greater equipment sales and higher uptake in data services.

MachBlue Mobile implements a subset of the Flash® 7 specifications, supplemented with the MachBlue Mobile API enabling enhanced handset control and integration.

Flash® is a registered trademark of Adobe Systems, Inc. in the United States and other countries
