Apple, Google join mobile standards group

The Khronos Group, an industry consortium focused on the creation of open standards, has announced that Apple, Dell and Google are amongst the latest companies to join the group.

Khronos aims to define open standards for the authoring and acceleration of dynamic media on a range of platforms including embedded systems and mobile phones.

Jon Peddie, president of market research firm Jon Peddie Research, said: “The lines continue to blur between different classes of devices – and so it is crucial to have a single body that is able to drive a coherent set of cross-platform standards to create new market opportunities for the entire graphics and media industry.”

Also this week, the OpenGL ARB voted to bring control of the OpenGL standard under Khronos.
