Symbian, which makes operating systems for wireless phones, on Wednesday announced that six new semiconductor companies will support its OS. Agilent Technologies, Epson, Parthus, Philips Semiconductors, Samsung and STMicroelectronics will join ARM, Intel, Motorola, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments in integrating the Symbian OS with their chips that use an ARM core, a technology that boosts chip performance. The move, announced at a conference in Cannes, France, is expected to reduce the time it takes to develop mobile phones and get them to market. Symbian's news follows similar announcements from Microsoft on Tuesday. Symbian is an independent company owned by Ericsson, Nokia, Matsushita, Motorola, Psion and Sony Ericsson. Ericsson, Nokia and Psion are already shipping devices using the Symbian OS. --Richard Shim, Special to ZDNet News
A new notebook from Samsung is using fingerprint security technology from European chipmaker STMicroelectronics. STMicro said Wednesday that its TouchChip fingerprint sensor and Protector Suite software, which provides log-on security and file encryption using a person's fingerprint as a pass key, are shipping inside Samsung's high-end GT9000 series notebooks worldwide.
The growth rate for PC shipments in China dropped to 13 percent in the third quarter, far slower than earlier rates, according to a preliminary report from researcher IDC. In the first quarter of 2001, for instance, PC shipments in China grew by 49 percent compared with the same period a year earlier. China accounts for roughly 43 percent of PC shipments to Asia, so the slowdown in growth could be ominous. "China has thus far been the poster child for the PC market, and a moderation in growth does not bode well for the industry," Ashok Kumar, an analyst with Piper Jaffray, wrote about IDC's findings. As in the United States, Dell Computer was the only large multinational PC maker to experience growth in China. Compaq, Samsung and IBM all saw sales shrink in the third quarter in China. Although Dell grew faster than China's Legend computer, Legend remained firmly in the No. 1 spot with 660,000 units.
