Agere Systems has pre-integrated Zi Corp.'s eZiText predictive text technology into a broad portfolio of chipsets, software and reference platforms used for multimedia-capable mobile phones.

The two companies signed a distribution agreement that enables Agere to deliver Zi's technology as part of Agere's integrated solutions for GPRS and EDGE mobile handsets. Under the distribution agreement, Agere is able to include Zi's eZiText technology as part of Agere's man-machine interface (MMI) module, which provides the interface between the mobile phone user and the applications and services that are available on a handset.

With about 41 language databases to offer, Zi will receive royalty payments from each customer who selects the integrated solution and licenses eZiText through Agere.

Agere is integrating eZiText version 6.0 into its current Sceptre based reference platforms and plans to make the technology available on future reference platforms.
