Aava to the Rescue: An iPhone Sized Moorestown Platform
Aava Mobile is a smartphone platform manufacturer. It does for smartphones what Pegatron (formerly ASUS) does for notebooks. Aava builds the motherboard and chassis, while the customer adds customization, software and apps.
Aava showed us its Moorestown platform which is about the size of an iPhone 3GS, but a bit narrower and thinner (although longer):
Aava’s reference platform has a 3.7” 800 x 480 OLED display (or an optional 3.8” 864 x 480 TFT display). It weighs 125g, offers 285 hours of standby battery life, 8.5 hours GSM talk time, 5.4 hours of 3G talk time and 5.2 hours of web browsing time using its 1500 mAh battery. Up to 16GB of NAND flash is supported on board.
