mobile devices. Engaging 3D user experiences are a substantial way for our
customer companies to differentiate their product offering in the highly
competitive smartphone market," says Sami Paihonen, head of User Experience
Design Centre at Ixonos.
The 3D user interface technology showcase is the first in the world
executed on MeeGo. It also includes Sony's Crackle video streaming service

demonstrating how a forward-thinking company can embrace new technology in
the further development of existing services to create better user
experiences," Paihonen explains.

Aumo, head of Global Solutions at Ixonos. Ixonos has solid experience in
Mobile Linux and experts involved in several MeeGo development projects. "We
are honoured to have the opportunity to showcase our cooperation with Intel
also at the MeeGo Software Development Forum on 14 April 2011," Aumo adds.

in Beijing, as this is fast becoming our key location in Asia. We already

our Device Creation Centre's operations to Beijing," explains Tomi Kyllonen,
