Long Description:
"Phoenix Technologies Ltd (NASDAQ: PTEC) designs, develops and supports core system software for personal computers and other computing devices. Phoenix's products - commonly referred to as BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) or firmware - support and enable the compatibility, connectivity, security and management of the various components and technologies used in such devices. Phoenix Technologies and IBM developed the El Torito standard.

Phoenix sells its products primarily to computer and component device manufacturers. The company also provides training, consulting, maintenance and engineering services to its customers.

Phoenix also designs, develops and supports software products and services that provide PC users, especially mobile devices, with enhanced device utility, reliability and security. Phoenix's portfolio of products and services includes software that helps users to locate and manage portable devices that have been lost or stolen as well as software that allow certain applications to operate on the computing device independently of the device’s primary operating system.

Although the true consumers of these products and services are enterprises, governments, service providers and individuals, Phoenix typically licenses these products to OEMs and ODMs to assist them in making their products attractive to those end-users.

Phoenix competes for sales primarily with in-house research and development (“R&D”) departments of PC and component manufacturers such as Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, Toshiba Corporation, Apple Inc., and Intel. Phoenix also competes for sales with other independent suppliers, including American Megatrends Inc., a privately-held U.S. company, and Insyde Software Corp., a public company based and listed in Taiwan.

Phoenix was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in September 1979, and was reincorporated in the State of Delaware in December 1986. Headquarters are in Milpitas, California." (visit link)
