The list of companies set to show off Android seems to grow a tad bit each passing day. Rumored, yet never confirmed until today was that Texas Instruments was going to be showing off Android at 3GSM/MWC ’08 in Barcelona. Not anymore. TI, one of the founding members of the Open Handset Alliance, has officially made the announcement.
Today at Mobile World Congress, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) announced it will demonstrate an early look of the Android mobile platform in two forms: a prototype handset based on TI’s OMAP850 processor that also includes TI’s Wireless LAN (WLAN) and Bluetooth® wireless technology solutions, as well as an OMAP3430 processor-based Zoom Mobile Development Kit from Logic PD. Both demonstrations highlight the flexibility of the OMAP platform’s multi-core architecture to deliver high-performance multimedia and sophisticated user interfaces (UI) on the Android platform.
