Dec 01, 2009 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) — ZiiLABS, a subsidiary of Creative Technology Ltd., today announced Zii TRINITY, a complete 3.5G/4G Smart Phone and development platform supporting the Optimized Android(TM) and native Linux(R)-based Plaszma(TM) operating systems. The Zii TRINITY delivers superior High Definition 1080p video output and accelerated 3D graphics to enable OEMs and ODMs to quickly and cost effectively bring differentiated Android and Plaszma- based solutions to market.
