LONDON Open Kernel Labs (Sydney, Australia), a provider of virtualization software for mobile phones and broadband internet devices, has introduced OK:Android, an off-the-shelf paravirtualized version of the Android smartphone platform.
OK:Android allows Android to be used as a guest operating system running in a secure hypercell on top of the OKL4 microvisor, the OK Labs mobile phone virtualization platform. The combination of OK:Android and OKL4 increases the security and robustness of Android, the company claimed. OK:Android helps reduce time to market for a new wave of Android devices, the company also claimed.
OK Labs virtualization technology has been shipped in more than 300 million mobile handsets, including Android-based devices where OKL4 runs on the baseband processor, the company said.
"OK:Android builds on the strong synergies between the OKL4 microvisor and the Android mobile OS," said Steve Subar, CEO of OK Labs, in a statement. "Both Android and OKL4 are based on dynamic open source projects, both are shipping in volume, and both streamline development through abstraction Android at the applications level and OKL4 for system software, including Android itself. Together in OK:Android, they offer OEMs, MNOs and ISVs a flexible, portable and secure applications and services platform."
