The companies, Cybercom, EB (Elektrobit), Ixonos, Nomovok and TDi, with the capability to deliver turn key solutions, including white-label mobile devices, applications and services to customers in the telecom sector, have jointly over 4,500 engineers with a strong background in wireless technologies and solutions.
”We are happy to see the announcement that Linux Foundation and LiMo are developing Tizen together. This will open up new business opportunities for mobile carriers, device manufacturers and service providers. Cybercom will be joining forces with participating companies and bring our expertise to the joint offering”, says Petteri Puhakka, CEO of Cybercom.
