Nokia Pushing Adoption of NoTA to Drop Development Costs
Dec 15, 2008, 1:30 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Nokia recently began soliciting mobile technology companies to adopt the NoTA (Network on Terminal Architecture) concept. The idea behind NoTA is to reduce the amount of money it costs to develop new handsets and bring them to market. With NoTA, a phone's functions would be compartmentalized into swappable modules that are instantly compatible with one another. The phone would no longer be centered around a single application engine, but instead use a network of subsystems/modules. Each module would perform a single task, such as application processing, storage, connectivity, or multimedia, and communicate with the rest of the modules through nodes based on open standards. By using this idea, the costs of developing new cell phones can be reduced by 98-99%, according to Nokia.
