Mon Sep 01 2008, 09:22

INTEL HAS snapped up a British company that specialises in mobile Linux development and services.

OpenedHand will now shift its focus to creating a Linux stack for Intel's Atom processors utilising Moblin's development kit. The software will reportedly be optimized for low-power Netbooks and various other "mobile Internet devices”.

The chip-making giant has vowed to continue its support for current Openedhand projects such as Clutter (used to create GUI's) and Matchbox, an open-source based environment for the X Window System.

Openedhand's pre-sale client list included Nokia, One Laptop Per Child, Openmoko, iRex, Access, ST Microelectronics and Vernier. µ
