Wang Tun, vice president of mobile operating system design studio Borqs, said that Borqs will work with China Mobile (NYSE: CHL; 0941.HK) and handset manufacturers to release approximately 30 TD-SCDMA OPhone handsets this year. Wang also said that Borqs is currently developing OMS 1.6, which will enter commercial use this year, as well as OMS 2.0, which the company will also strive to put into commercial use within the year.
Eight models of OPhone handset are currently available from domestic and foreign producers, including LG, Lenovo (0992.HK), Dell, Dopod, Philips, Hisense (600060.SH), and Motorola.
Editor's Note: Wang Tun emphasized that while OMS originated from the Android operating system, it is an independent platform. He added that OMS will maintain its compatibility with Android, so that users can download and run Android apps on their OPhones. Wang also said that this year, Borqs would open up its UI/UE design.
