BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2009) - Mobile World Congress: Intrinsyc Software International, Inc. (TSX:ICS), a leading provider of software solutions for mobile and embedded devices, today announced the launch of three new tools that reduce OEM time to market for Android mobile phones. RapidRIL for Android is a complete full-featured radio interface layer that can be cost-effectively reused across multiple operating systems. Telephony Test for Android is a fully automated and extensible script-based test suite that performs radiometric and systematic testing of Android telephony.
