Access Aims for 30% Marketshare by 2010
The International Herald Tribune has an article up profiling Access. The article gives a general overview of Access' plans post acquiring PalmSource. The article states that PalmSource's current smartphone marketshare is around 4% and that Access views Microsoft as their chief competitor.
Access wants to increase its share of the mobile operating system market to 30 percent by 2010, from the 4 percent it has now as a result of the PalmSource purchase, said Tomihisa Kamada, the company's chief technical officer and co-founder.
"Mobile phones are becoming very complicated devices, and in order to meet customers' requirements, total integrated solutions are becoming very important," Kamada said. "Acquiring PalmSource allows us to do this and also allows us to cover all the important markets - the U.S., Europe, Japan and China. Integration costs for the handset makers are heavy, so if they can go to a one-stop shop they are happy to work with one company."
