Aava Mobile, a startup phone manufacturer based in Finland, launches its first smartphone device today, calling it the first "fully open' mobile platform. Designed with Intel's new mobile Atom processor, "Moorestown," the mobile device can support Linux's mobile OS Moblin, MeeGo, or Android, all of which are open-source operating systems of their own.

"There is so much creativity that can be harnessed when you free yourself from the confines of a proprietary design and give developer communities an open platform and some tools to play with. So Aava Mobile saw an opportunity to make an entirely open mobile device," said Aava CEO Markus Appel.

To encourage excitement over its new device, Aava has kicked off a competition for third-party developers and manufacturers to see who can come up with the most intruging ideas.

Devices using the Aava Mobile architecture will measure 64mm by 125mm, with a thickness of just 11.7 millimeters. Other specs include touch-screen capabilities, HD video support, an accelerometer, 3D compass, GPS, and Wi-Fi functionality.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
