[News] Nokia's Linux Tablet Improved, OpenMoko on the Way, Google's Linux Phone Attracts Devs

OS upgrade leaks for Linux-based tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| The hotly anticipated Maemo operating system upgrade for the Nokia N800 
| Internet Tablet has leaked. Early reviewers are impressed with the upgrade's 
| faster performance and Mozilla-based Web browser.  


OpenMoko prepping to push sales of Linux-based handset

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenMoko, a Linux-based open source handset platform developer, is pushing 
| the development of Linux-based smartphone with its open source handset, the 
| Neo 1973, which may be available to the mass-market in the second half of 
| 2008, according to company sources.   


Envisioning the Android User Experience: Customizable to the Max

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that the nitty-gritty details of the SDK are becoming known, developers 
| are starting to get some sense of what the platform could mean in terms of 
| the actual products it spawns -- in other words, just what, exactly, Android  
| phones might look like.  


Linux devices everywhere. Open source even.


Frankly Speaking: Game-changer

,----[ Quote ]
| Will the GooglePhone matter? Last week, Google officially unveiled its 
| long-rumored mobile phone software. Dubbed “Android,” the Linux-based 
| software stack is being backed by more than 30 partners, including handset 
| makers Motorola, Samsung, LG and HTC, and service providers Sprint Nextel, 
| T-Mobile and NTT DoCoMo.    
| But no Nokia. No AT&T or Verizon. No Apple or Palm. No Symbian, Microsoft or 
| RIM. Without them, will Android matter at all? 
| Hold that thought.
| The day after Google’s Android announcement, the One Laptop Per Child 
| Foundation said that its low-cost, Linux-based laptops for kids are finally 
| rolling off the assembly line in China. The little green XO laptops, with 
| their built-in mesh networking and low-power-consumption design, will start 
| shipping to Uruguay and Mongolia shortly.    


Closed iPhone opens road for Linux phones

,----[ Summary ]
| With iPhone a closed platform, Linux gets an wide-open road for phones and 
| other smart devices 


PCs being pushed aside in Japan

,----[ Quote ]
| The PC's role in Japanese homes is diminishing, as its once-awesome monopoly 
| on processing power is encroached by gadgets such as smart phones that act 
| like pocket-size computers, advanced Internet-connected game consoles, 
| digital video recorders with terabytes of memory.   


Linux Sees 'Astronomic' Growth in Mobile Devices

,----[ Quote ]
| "We were very aware that the growth in mobile for Linux was huge, but we 
| didn't know it was so astronomic," Amanda McPherson, marketing director for 
| the Linux Foundation, told LinuxInsider. "These are very encouraging 
| numbers." Why Linux has drawn significant support from the community of 
| handset manufacturers can be explained on several fronts, McPherson said.
