Picsel Technologies Ltd. announced Picsel Browser running on the Brew Plattform, the smartphone operating system from Qualcomm. It supports BREW V2.1 and beyond and allows users to display Flash, video, Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat files. This unique user interface enables even the smallest screen to show a full PC display, changing the way users interact with their mobile devices.
Losing the detail is the usual consequence with squeezing high-resolution sources into a few pixels. By giving the user a "zoom" control system, Picsel solves this problem. Users will be able to see any part of the big picture in close by simply drawing a diagonal stroke with the stylus. They just pick a spot on the screen, focus, and zoom; then zoom out and pick another spot to take a closer look.
The application can be used to create a Word document, play a game of Doom, show a live video or edit a .PDF Acrobat file. It is possible not just to view different files, but also to cut and paste one to the other.
Already available and shipping on Linux, Symbian (UIQ and Series 60), Palm, MicroITRON and the Microsoft platforms - Picsel software will now be available for the BREW platform. Picsel Browser on will be available in Q2 of this year.
Picsel is also introducing Link Navigator. "Allowing the user to quickly identify key areas of interest, Picsel's Link Navigator is adaptable to multiple device form factors and various content formats." It enables users to quickly scan through the content page, using intelligent sequential stepping of hyperlinks.
