|Mimer SQL Mobile in new Chinese smart phone
Yulong Telecommunication in Shenzhen, China, today launched their new 3G flagship product, the Coolpad N900 smart phone.
The N900 uses Mimer SQL Mobile from the Swedish database vendor Mimer Information Technology as embedded database management system for all persistent data storage on the phone. This Windows CE based phone is developed by Yulong together with China Telecom, and is China Telecom’s high-end 3G smart phone. It is the first dual network (CDMA/GSM) smart phone with dual SIM card support in the world. The N900 also supports China Telecom’s E Surfing mobile communication service. Mimer SQL Mobile is a high performance and scalable database server with full SQL support for mobile devices.
Yulong Telecommunication (“Yulong”) focuses on mid-end and high-end mobile communication terminals. Yulong has researched and developed dual-working technology that takes the lead in realizing a breakthrough in the field of mobile phone core technologies. Yulong has become a global leader of dual-mode mobile phone and No. 1 brand of dual-mode smart phones. In their new Coolpad N900 smart phone, the built-in Mimer SQL Mobile database server is responsible for all data management. This has given Yulong’s application developers access to the full SQL feature set, making it possible to use advanced database features like stored procedures, triggers and referential integrity when building the applications for the address book, messaging, calendar, music, photos, etc. All data on the phone is possible to share between the different applications under full concurrency control. The built-in Mimer SQL Mobile database makes it possible to handle gigabytes of data on the phone, and it is possible to store up to 32 gigabytes of data on a removable flash card. Yulong also launches Coolmart, an on-line shop for third party software for the N900 phone.
“The Chinese 3G market is growing fast, and our ambition is that Yulong becomes a leading brand on this market. We made a thorough database evaluation when the development of the Coolpad N900 smart phone started, and we found that Mimer SQL Mobile meets all our tough requirements on functionality, performance, and footprint. Mimer SQL Mobile also gives us a very attractive licensing cost level”, says Li Wang, Chief Operating Officer at Yulong Telecommunication. “The support from Mimer during development of our new flag ship smart phone has been excellent, and we are confident that the N900 will be very successful on the Chinese market”, concludes Li Wang.
The Coolpad N900 smart phone from Yulong is running Windows CE 6.0 Core on a Freescale ARM11 CPU (532 MHz). The phone is available for sale in China from June 1st, and will soon be followed by other phone models based on the same software platform.
“We are very pleased with the close cooperation with Yulong, and we see the new Coolpad N900 smart phone as the next step in our very successful mobile market strategy. It is also an important breakthrough for Mimer on the Chinese market”, says Magnus Hedencrona, Managing Director, Mimer Information Technology.
