Infraware has announced its launch of the ultra low-cost Android-based smartphone platform - Polaris Smartphone Suite (PSS).
Created to accelerate the removal of barriers to digital inclusion and allowing for true smartphone popularization, the PSS enables phone manufacturers to develop Android smartphones at a cost of approximately US$30. Manufacturers and wireless carriers can develop the platform further and modify it for end-user customization. Using MediaTek's MT6257 baseband processor and collaborating with phone makers, INFRAWARE plans to launch its first PSS smartphones in December, first in China followed by India, Russia and other markets in SEA and Latin America.
PSS users can search for information on the internet, send and receive emails, view and edit documents, enjoy high-resolution mobile games, share experiences through SNS, and take pictures and watch videos. Users are also able to download and enjoy more than 1000 Android applications at the Crossmo App store and the amount of applications will continue to increase.
