Congratulations to the 2008 GlobalPlatform Stars:


Device Committee: Christophe Colas, Trusted Logic - "Making it Happen" category

Mr. Colas provided strong leadership and direction while providing a PC simulator tool for a GPD/STIP 2.3 environment. The PC simulator provides a training toolkit for application providers and systems integrators, and improves interoperability for a GPD/STIP 2.3 environment by giving a reference. This PC simulator is now ready to be delivered to GlobalPlatform members.

Moreover, Mr. Colas provided some major contributions that helped the Device Committee consider future add-ons to current specifications that may help drive the adoption of GPD/STIP for mobile markets in future.
