The combination hardware/software/services platform is intended to help developers create next-generation interactive digital audio and video devices, and includes PJava-based apps running on an embedded Linux OS. Philips has already used the platform to develop several consumer electronics products (with embedded Linux inside), the first of which will be announced later this month."
