    Chip makers, Korean carrier back cellular graphics standard :

    SAN MATEO, Calif; Korean cellular carrier SK Telecom and nine chip and software companies are joining the Khronos Group, an ad hoc industry alliance developing a graphics interface for mobile systems.
    The group is poised to ratify as early as Wednesday (July 23) version 1.0 of its OpenGL Embedded Systems (ES) standard that members hope will see widespread use in cellular phones.

    Epson, STMicroelectronics and PC chip set designer Silicon Integrated Systems (SIS) top the list of new chip companies joining Khronos. Epson and STM already field a host of chips for cellphones while SIS declared its plan to move into wireless devices earlier this year.

    Other new hardware companies joining the group include chip and core providers ChipWrights (Newton, Mass.) and SunPlus Technology Co. Ltd. (Hsinchu, Taiwan).

    OpenGL ES hardware accelerators will begin to ship by the end of the year, according to Neil Trevett, chairman of Khronos Group and vice president of marketing for member company 3DLabs (Sunnyvale, Calif.).

    For some reason I can't see this news at the main page. The headline is there, but the actual text is missing.
