Cell Phones: Don't Count Linux Out
Posted: 01-Sep-2004 [Source: Business Week]

[Even though Linux handsets have been slow in coming, MonteVista Software, which supplies the Linux OS used in most phones, reports it has won 10 contracts for Linux handsets.]

"Motorola has delivered two handsets, both in China, with two more on the way. But only 1.1 million Linux-based phones are expected to ship this year, vs. 14 million using Symbian system, estimates researcher Strategy Analytics in London. Downsizing Linux to fit into mobile phones took longer than predicted, and the software has a ways to go before it equals the sophistication of Symbian's package or the mobile phone version of Microsoft Windows. Motorola nevertheless remains a believer, says Scott Durchslag, general manager of Motorola's personal communications sector for Southeast Asia. "Linux is more flexible and opens you up to the innovation of developers around the world," he says."
