Artificial Life Supports Google's Android Mobile Platform

Introducing Android: Open Source Mobile Platform

Hong Kong-based Artificial Life, Inc announced their plans to develop new and innovatively designed games and applications for Google's free and open source mobile platform, Android.

The company anticipates that this emerging platform will soon attract handset manufacturers because of the lower costs for the operating system and expects Android to be successful especially in China due to its Linux base. The company has already deployed its applications and games across various mobile technology platforms including J2ME, BREW and DoJa, and sees the new mobile platform as a natural extension of its business strategy to reach as many mobile devices as possible.

The company also expects that development on the Android platform will produce compelling new mobile applications with a tight integration to online Internet functions as a result of the rich application programmers interface (API) that will be provided by the Android software development kit (SDK).

With the recent release of the early access Android SDK by Google, Artificial Life currently prepares their own cutting edge Smart Engine Mobile Platform(tm) technology to support Android applications. The Company expects to release its first products for the Android platform in early 2008.

"The emergence of mobile devices with a more open architecture and robust feature set makes our lives easier by giving us the freedom to create games with fewer limitations imposed by the specific devices while, at the same time, reducing production overhead. We will, therefore, support the Google open source initiative by providing new and innovative products," said Eberhard Schoneburg, CEO of Artificial Life, Inc.
