Encyclopedia > A760

The Motorola A760 is a Linux based camera equipped mobile telephone ('cell phone') developed at Motorola's laboratory in China and released in the Chinese market on February 16, 2003. The particular Linux distribution used was MontaVista Linux. It is the first phone to use Linux.


Technology

The A760 is particularly significant in that Motorola was a founding member of the Symbian OS initiative (a software platform competing against Linux, Smartphone and PalmOS for mobile phones) and in spite of this, used Linux instead of Symbian for the phone. As such the A760 may mark the beginning of the use of Linux on mobile phones. Other newer Motorola phone models which use Linux are the A768 and the E680. The A760 is reportedly the world’s first handset combining a Linux Operating System (OS) and Java Technology, with full multimedia PDA functionality and a built_in camera.


The phone's user interface was built using Trolltech's Qtopia Phone Edition platform on top of the Qt/Embedded software development framework for embedded systems.


Features

The Motorola A760 combines the typical features of a mobile phone with the capabilities of a personal digital assistant (PDA), digital camera, video player, MP3 player, speakerphone, multimedia messaging, instant Internet access, and Bluetooth wireless technology. Packed into one compact device with a color touch-screen, the Motorola A760 is designed for information management as well as text, entertainment, and, of course voice communication.
