It was just a week ago that we confirmed the Phoronix Test Suite is being ported to Windows, then on Monday delivered Phoronix Test Suite 2.2, and a day after that announced a major advancement for Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 "Lenvik" and that was image quality comparison and analysis support to take our benchmarking software to the next level. Today we are continuing on this roll by announcing the Phoronix Test Suite is coming to mobile phones! To assist those in optimizing their software on mobile phones and devices for not only the pure performance but also matters like monitoring the battery power consumption, the Phoronix Test Suite has made the jump into the mobile space.

As of the latest Lenvik code now found in the Phoronix Test Suite Git tree, Palm's webOS platform is now supported and the Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 can run on the Palm Pre and should be able to handle other webOS and Optware devices too. Support for other mobile OS platforms are likely to come too. If you are a manufacturer and would like to see the Phoronix Test Suite come to your architecture/platform, please contact us at Phoronix. With pts-core now running on ARM hardware and phones, we will begin introducing new test profiles focused for mobile devices in the near future.

If you are interested in getting involved, let us know in our forums or mailing list.
