Open Handset Alliance adds VisualOn to team in time for Gingerbread

VisualOn, a company that specializes in bringing rich mutimedia experiences to handsets, has just joined the Open Handset Alliance. Just in time, too, with Gingerbread poking its head out over the horizon. The company will now start contributing to Android with the new release, and we can start looking forward to a new and better slew of features in the area of music and video, streaming, mobile TV and more.

VisualOn’s Android solution comes courtesy of VOME (VisualOn Media Engine), an “OpenMAX compliant media framework that is capable of working directly with hardware and/or software multimedia components.”

We can also expect faster market releases with the new partnership. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!
