Myriad selected as partner on LG’s first Android device

Myriad Group, a global leader in mobile technology with software in over two billion phones, has announced that it has been selected by LG Electronics as the major Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) applications partner and J2ME partner for its new Android device, LG GW620, which is due to be released this month via both Orange and Canadian carrier, Rogers.

Myriad is a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance (OHA) contributing various OMA applications, securing Myriad’s position as a leading provider of Android software. LG will use Myriad’s OMA applications, as they are proven on the Android platform.

“Android is a very exciting platform as it allows mobile operators to quickly bring advanced features to their customers,” said Simon Wilkinson, CEO of Myriad. “This partnership will enable LG to benefit from our proven mobile technology, bringing the best possible experience to the user.”

LG and Myriad will continue to work closely on other projects to deliver the best software experience on mass-market mobile devices.
