eFluxMedia reported Friday that chip maker ARM Holdings has a Linux platform in the works for ultra-mobile PCs. The company will partner with six vendors to develop the platform, which was announced at the annual ARM Developers conference.

 

The goal, the story says, is to create "a rich and full Internet experience" for UMPC users with an operating system, an application development framework and Web browser. ARM, together with Samsung, Texas Instrumentals, MontaVista, Marvell, Movial and Mozilla, will go head to head with Intel in the UMPC space.

 

Linux-Devices.com added that most of the work will be released into development communities by January and will be part of such open source projects as GNOME Mobile and Mozilla.org.
