The article focuses on the importance of RTOS in cellular handsets. Requirements for the nextgeneration handsets are demanding and varying. Users would like to see an inexpensive combination of a desktop computer and mobile phone. A lean design and long battery life are mandatory. Service providers require dynamic applications and functionality that work worldwide across all phone models, independent of the manufacturer. The demanding requirements of a 2.5/3G handset vary from the perspective of users, manufacturers, and service providers. Regardless of viewpoint, the RTOS is a mandatory part of the handset, simply because of the technical requirements.
