Amiga Inc has announced that it is working with Nokia to integrate AmigaDE technology into Nokia`s new Mediaterminal. The AmigaDE will offer users the ability to download and use AmigaDE applications, MP3, MPEG4, Universal Chat and streaming video, turning the family TV into a multifunctional infotainment center. AmigaDE technology will also be used in a whole scala of upcoming handheld devices and will become fully integrated in a future releases of the Amiga operating system. To get an idea of what future cellphones will look like, take a look these concept pictures of future Nokia phones. Also should be noted that PDA/cellphone targetted AmigaDE 3D games are under development. For instance an AmigaDE version of Hyperion Entertainment`s Warp3D technology was recently demonstrated to me at the Amiga 2001 fair in Cologne. Here`s a Status Report with screenshots of Payback for the AmigaDE, a GTA-clone and this year`s most popular classic 68k AmigaOS game title. If you want to speak to AmigaDE or AmigaOS designers and developers for yourself then be sure to attend the upcoming AmigaExpo show to be held in the US.

Where did you get that AmigaDE 3D capable phone info from?
I know that for example the coming cameraphone from Nokia runs 3D demos nicely (using Fathammer 3D API), you are not suggesting that it runs also …
After re-reading: not AmigaDE capable phone in development, but phone capable 3D games, ok.
Nokia phones run Symbian, not AmigaDE.
AmigaDE runs (also) on symbian.
AmigaDE normally runs as a parasitic OS, on top of another OS.
I have seen reports of its being able to run standalone, but all the
demos have shown it with Linux or some other OS underneath, providing
hardware drivers etc.
The point is to have a way of running the identical binary on various
machines, not to produce a complete free-standing OS like
There is an IRC-log available of a recently held realtime chat with 5 Hyperion Entertainment developers. Hyperion Entertainment has signed a contract to develop and manage the AmigaOS4 project. They are excellently suited for the task as they are well respected, have been in direct contact with most European AmigaOS designers in the past and finally have some of the best Amiga coders within their ranks.
Read the lengthy <a href=”http://www.aug99.de/exklusiv/hyperion.php“>IRC-log at AUG99`s website. Some statistics: The chat almost took more than 3.5 hours in total. Around 176 people were logged in simultaniously on average during the event.
