Enea Selected for Android Integration Project

KISTA, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) -


Enea Android Competence Center works with Scalado and Aptina to Bring Innovative Mobile Phone Camera Technology to Android

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 9 March, 2010 - Enea (NASDAQ OMX Nordic: ENEA) today announced that Scalado, a leading provider of high-performing imaging technologies, relied on the Enea Android Competence Center (www.enea.com/android) to deliver an Android-based proof of concept platform. Scalado required a complete hardware and software implementation to demonstrate that it's SpeedTags Camera Solution, which eliminates the lag between pressing the capture button and the taking of a picture, delivered a rich camera experience on Android. It was essential that the Android platform itself would not be the system bottleneck - negating the benefits of this innovative technology.

"Scalado is working to revolutionize the quality and enhance the user experience of mobile phone photography. In order to make the largest impact they need to be on emerging platforms like Android," said Per Åkerberg, president and CEO of Enea. "We are pleased that they trusted Enea to deliver a demonstration platform that is critical to their success."

Camera technology is among the most complex in a mobile phone, touching all hardware and software layers. A key part of this project was replacing a legacy image sensor on the development board with an advanced five megapixel sensor from leading supplier, Aptina, which had integrated SpeedTags technology. A team from Scalado, Aptina and Enea ensured the integration of the image sensor, firmware, application software and Android.

"It was a great challenge for Enea to complete and deliver this project in the short timeframe before Mobile World Congress," said Fadi Abbas, CMO/CSO and founder at Scalado. "Enea demonstrated unique skills by integrating the Aptina image sensor hardware and our application software with the Android platform."

"The Scalado SpeedTags Camera Solution greatly enhances the user experience of our five megapixel image sensor for mobile phones, and helps illustrate Aptina's commitment to providing an easy to use camera solution," said Venkat Puntambekar, Director of Marketing, Mobile Imaging at Aptina. "Working with Enea and Scalado to bring this new integrated offering to market on Android was a truly collaborative effort by three technology leaders in the industry."

Enea's Android Competence Center has a focus on the platform and framework level of Android. The professional services teams of Enea have deep knowledge in Android internals, system integration, file systems, device drivers, operator needs, security and tool development. Enea also offers a flexible module- based training that delivers exactly the knowledge required from a simple overview to a five day complete Android seminar.
