PortalPlayer Inc. has announced that it has won the 2006 Frost & Sullivan technology innovation of the year award for the development and successful launch of its Preface platform. Frost & Sullivan bestows this award upon companies that have identified emerging trends, and developed products to further expand the market base.

The Preface platform enables the development of a second user interface on notebook computers called a personal media display (PMD). The PMD works with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system to provide 'always on' access to information and media stored in the notebook. It is also a platform for developers to create mini-applications and gadgets that give users functionality and access to information more than what was previously available. The main components of the Preface platform include a low power processor, a small second display, flash memory and user controls that can be installed in various locations, including the notebook lid opposite the main display.

"Frost & Sullivan selected PortalPlayer for the technology innovation of the year award because its Preface technology shows tremendous promise to change the way people use notebook computers," said Amreetha Vijaykumar, Frost & Sullivan's research analyst. "Preface could significantly impact adoption and change the competitive posture of the notebook industry."
