I'm having trouble finding any information regarding the job title "platform architect". What is the difference between it and a solution architect?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
I would take Solution architect to be the person responsible for designing the specific system for a particular problem, which might be based on a particular platform.
A Platform architect would be responsible for designing the platform which a common set of systems would be based.
An Enterprise architect would be responsible for all the platform's in an enterprise, determining how they fit together.
However, in practice, this is going to be entirely subjective, with an enormous overlap between the different roles, from company to company.
