Bullitt creates mobile devices designed especially for people whose work and lifestyle require technology that is robust and durable. Teaming up with leading global brands, the company develops innovative products that provide a unique mobile experience, such as the rugged Cat® S60 smartphone, which is the world’s first to feature thermal imaging technology. All of Bullitt’s smart mobile devices are built to run on the Android platform. “The openness of Android leads to more developer talent and it has become a key tool for enabling us to provide compelling products,” says Tim Shepherd, Head of Applications and Market Intelligence. “Because we can give our customers the latest version of Android, they know they are getting the fundamentals they want. This allows us to focus on the unique experience our products offer.” For a company with innovation at its core, Android’s flexibility is an invaluable part of the development process. "Android’s open operating system and rich app ecosystem have been hugely helpful in developing our proposition across niche sectors because of the apps and content available," says Tim. This openness enables the Bullitt team to build highly customized products to suit different customer needs. “Android is the first option we look at when we approach a project like the S60. We couldn’t deliver something as appealing without being on a platform that consumers want and businesses value”. Thanks to its success in the smartphone sector, in which Android plays a central role, Bullitt has doubled in size year on year, and this growth looks set to continue as it seeks to enter new segments. "Android’s compatibility has a role in broadening the range of products and devices we use and develop for," says Tim.
