[News] New OPhone OS Based on Linux; Nokia's Vision of MeeGo Phones

Hash: SHA1

Marvell to Introduce Wide Array of OPhones Built for the China Market

,----[ Quote ]
| OPhone OS is a mobile operating system that 
| runs on the Linux kernel. OPhone OS is 
| linux-based smartphone software based on 
| open source software and mobile internet 
| technologies. 


3D mobiles are the future, says Nokia

,----[ Quote ]
| One interesting thing would be more details 
| on Nokia's Intel deal to create Linux-based 
| MeeGo, but in spite of a question on the 
| subject, Harlow refused to be drawn into 
| more detail, leaving us still speculating 
| as to the scope and impact of the deal.


First ELSE Still On Track for Mid-2010 Release

,----[ Quote ]
| To remind you, the First Else is, 
| obviously, the first ELSE phone and the OS 
| has been designed for one-handed use.  The 
| Linux-based OS has gone through several 
| revisions with new parts added since the 
| last time we saw it, with some honeycomb-
| style effects and a fish-eye magnifying 
| lens both on display.



Could Samsung and LiMO turn Google's China row to advantage?

,----[ Quote ]
| Since the smartphone market is so new in
| China, it is not too late for carriers and
| their suppliers to defocus on Android and
| adopt a more fully supported platform like
| Symbian (already embraced by China Mobile) or
| a Linux alternative like LiMO (very friendly
| to the Chinese operators' aims to control and
| customize their content and user experience).

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Nokia N900 Review Roundup ,----[ Quote ] | You only have to read a few reviews of the | Nokia N900 to realise that it is a | resounding success – people like the | functionality, the open source nature of | its OS, the memory, the possibilities for | development, and the little features on it. | Techradar disagreed with Nokia on one | thing: they don’t believe that the Nokia | N900 is a computer. Instead, they said, | “it’s a smartphone and a very good one at | that.” In addition, they were also | impressed with the overall performance of | the OS. | | Similarly, T3 were highly impressed with | the overall functionality of the Nokia | N900, saying it was “better than any Nokia | handset we’ve seen in along time.” | | They added: “In terms of browsing and sheer | multitasking capability, it’s also superior | to other smartphone rivals.” `---- http://noknok.tv/2009/11/20/nokia-n900-review-roundup/ Nokia Focuses on Linux-based Maemo for High-end Smartphones ,----[ Quote ] | The talk of the town is Android.
