Vice President, Multimedia Experiences, Nokia. "With the mobile device
now at the center of people’s lives, we want people to have access to fantastic
mobile content when and where they want. We are announcing our collaboration
with ATI now, so that developers have the next 12 to 18 months to be innovative
and create world class mobile multimedia experiences."

With mobile devices becoming ever more powerful and complex, ATI and Nokia
are working to drive the complexity out of multimedia development by promoting
open standards and providing integrated hardware, software and tools. In this
way, developers need only create content once for consumers to enjoy on a
range of devices. Specifically, ATI aims to provide a dedicated tools chain
and software development kit (SDK) for developers in the fall of 2006. ATI
and Nokia will also hold a series of joint workshops in the second half of
this year to showcase the environment to key developers.
"Our role is to enable all content, from ultra-high quality music playback
to 3D gaming, and we’ll jointly guide and support the members of the content
development community as they focus on creating amazing user experiences,"
said Paul Dal Santo, Vice President and GM, Handheld Products, ATI. "With
a shared vision of how multimedia impacts the mobile market, Nokia and ATI
are providing much needed direction and a framework to move the whole industry
forward."
