Intrinsyc, a provider of software solutions for mobile devices, said its Device Development Solutions group helped with the systems integration of the Barnes & Noble nook eBook reader.
Intrinsyc provided both proprietary software and engineering services to build the Android based platform software, and assisted with application development. The company improved the Android operating system functionality by creating a software platform that abstracted the hardware from the applications allowing the app development team to build feature-rich applications running across the nook’s dual screen design.
The use of Intrinsyc’s RapidRIL, Connection Manager, Power Optimizer, Telephony Test Suite and Remote Device Updater technology were key components that reduced development time and ensured delivery of a quality product.
Intrinsyc used Remote Device Updater to provide remote updates of the entire software platform to allow developers working across multiple regions to have the latest software build and enable Barnes & Noble to meet its project schedule. Remote Device Updater may also be used to provide feature enhancements to consumers’ device after purchase.
“Intrinsyc demonstrated tremendous dedication to the project’s success from our first meeting. They listened to understand our needs, providing consultation throughout the project to improve the product and the development process,” said Tony Astarita, Vice President, Digital Products, Barnes & Noble
