ZHMICRO LLC, today announced availability of new Z47 Processors for Pocket PC and Windows Mobile Operating Systems. These new processors provide software development organizations with one development platform for the creation of Mobile Applications without the need for additional third party tools, SDK's, API's, or Emulators.
According to the press release, the Z Visual 08 IDE offers an "All-in-One" Integrated Development Environment that provides software developers the capability of building mobile, desktop, and enterprise apps that require, or would be enhanced by, extending the capabilities of C++. When used with the corresponding Z47 Processor, apps written with Z++ Visual 08 are capable of running multiple Operating Systems. ZHMICRO says that these would include Operating Systems for the Enterprise and Desktop such as Microsoft Windows, LINUX and Unix, and for mobile devices like Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Palm. The combination of apps written with Z++ Visual 08, and the use of the Z47 Processor, allows for the fast development of Multi-OS Applications and the integration of these Applications onto a wide range of devices.
This new addition of Windows Mobile and Pocket PC Z47 Processors empowers software developers in creating Smart Phone applications for complex multi-OS devices. By removing the requirement to develop for a specific platform and to learn complex and lighly supported SDKs, APIs and Emulators a developers job has just become much easier, said Dr. Zorabi Honargohar, Chief Scientist, ZHMICRO LLC.
Sounds interesting but some of it was just a little over my head. Alright now, I hear that snickering. Okay, so maybe some of it was a lot over my head. ;-) It still sounds promising and cool for Palm OS and WM app developers. You can read the full press release here.
