Access and Emblaze Mobile Unveil Else Intuition with Linux Platform

Posted on October 23rd, by Kim Poh Liaw in archive, featured. 8 comments

ACCESS and Emblaze Mobile this week unveiled its new Else Intuition, featuring Access Linux Platform v3.0 with touch UI. To be used with GSM Quad band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) or GSM Triband (850/1900/2100 MHz) network, the Else Intuition comes with built in GPS, WiFi, bluetooth and powered by a TI OMAP 3430 processor. Else Intuition takes advantage of ACCESS Linux Platform v3.0 to provide advanced flexibility and configurability, enabling users to run multiple applications simultaneously.


While we are not clear on the overall design of the new user interface, the Else Intuition is using a capacitive touch screen, which might also bring a multitouch capability for supported applications. The 3.47-inch capacitive touch screen has a FWVGA resolution with 480 x 854 pixel (16:9).



The first ELSE is being previewed at ACCESS Day, ACCESS’ annual ecosystem and partner event in Tokyo, Japan on October 22, 2009. The companies have already been actively promoting the first ELSE to top-tier mobile operators worldwide, and operator evaluations are currently underway. The complete global unveiling of the ELSE INTUITION platform and the first ELSE device will be announced separately.

    With only 256mb RAM, i wonder it could really do “multiple applications simultaneously” as quoted ?

  • Seb

    I think that this device’s list of features is very impressive. Also, I think the UI looks great and is very “clean” in its presentation. The fan-shaped menu seems super comfortable and easily accessible

  • Tracy

    Else has all the essential elements in a mobile device (and with top of the norch technology!), with a very comfortable UI, and i must say, the design is really smart!

  • Pheobe

    I think Else looks very attract, and i consider the UI of the phone very comfortable for the users. The screen size is big, it’s good for seeing photos and videos and of course surfing the internet.

    There is a promo video on Youtube. it shows the cool UI and outlook of the phone! but i still want to know more about the phone. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nn1uPQ3zXMw

  • More observant that “Mode”

    256 meg of RAM, but also 16 gigabytes of Flash memory.
