Collabora Ltd. develops Open Source Telepathy framework for VoIP and
Instant Messaging on the Nokia 770 Internet tablet
12 June - Cambridge, UK - Open source development experts Collabora Ltd.
and world leader in mobile technology Nokia have joined forces to
develop Telepathy, a real time communication framework.
The collaboration between the two companies has already yielded an
active open source community around the framework itself. The Nokia 770
Internet Tablet OS 2006 Edition uses Telepathy as the foundation of
Voice Over IP and Instant Messaging functionality enabling users to
communicate via text or voice with friends using Google Talk(tm) and
Jabber(tm) servers across the world.
Nokia R&D Manager, Yannick Pellet, said: "When we began this project to
bring VoIP and IM to the 770, we first looked around in the open source
world to see if anyone out there was looking to solve the same issues
that we were facing. After meeting with the people from Collabora and
discussing their plans, it became clear that Collabora's idea for an
open source Instant messaging and VoIP framework were a good match for
"From this initial conception, Collabora Ltd. founded and fostered a
community for the Open Source Telepathy project with our support and
involvement. The framework solves all major issues of flexibility and
scalability, providing a robust platform for third-party extendibility
in the future."
"Nokia has emerged as a spearhead of Open Source development on embedded
Linux. This project provided a unique opportunity to show how a solution
to a client's specific problems could also be the basis of a vibrant
Open Source community project," said Collabora Ltd. CEO Rob Taylor.
"Telepathy is a tribute to the speed and quality of development that can
be attained when the corporate and open source world work hand in hand
towards the same goals. Open Source development and spot-on design has
allowed us to achieve a small development miracle, " continued Yannick
"Many of the issues we have solved together with Nokia for the Telepathy
framework are also issues faced on Linux desktop system. It is a unified
solution that guarantees a long-lived solution on embedded," confirms
Collabora Ltd. CTO Robert McQueen.
The results of this collaboration have been continuously fed to the Open
Source community and merged into the Telepathy project under the GNU
