Nokia prep'ing first Linux phone?

,----[ Quote ]
| The world's largest mobile phone vendor will adopt Linux for its higher-end 
| phones, a report claims. Instead of its Symbian-based S60 stack, Nokia will 
| look to open source OS technology such as Maemo, in order to better compete 
| with RIM and Apple, says the Financial Times, Germany.

Nokia to cull Symbian from smartphones?

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia smartphones may soon be shipped running the phone giant's Linux-based
| Maemo operating system instead of Symbian, it has been claimed.
|
| Maemo – also known as the Internet Tablet OS – has been around since 2005 and
| was originally designed for Nokia’s family of handheld internet gadgets.
|
| Now a report by the Financial Times Deutschland has hinted that Nokia is
| preparing to drop Symbian from its smartphones, in favour of Maemo. The
| paper’s source is unclear.

Nokia RX-51 Tablet Captured in the Wild

,----[ Quote ]
| The N900, as we are calling it now, can be termed an upgrade over the N97.
| The device features a full QWERTY keyboard and a huge 3.5-inch touch screen
| capable of WVGA resolution (800x480). It is expected to run the upcoming
| Maeomo5 OS, the latest version of the Linux based smartphone OS that Nokia
| uses for its lineup of tablet devices. That, we believe, would be the major
| difference between this one and the N97 which runs on the more "mass market"
| Series 60 Fifth Edition OS.

Nokia turning to Android for new phone?

Nokia to release a netbook?

,----[ Quote ]
| All this begs the question of which OS platform would Nokia choose? The N810
| runs on a Linux variant known as Maemo, which includes a Nokia-developed
| Gnome application framework dubbed Hildon.
|
| Hildon in turn has been adopted by Ubuntu for their Intel-endorsed Mobile
| Internet Device Edition, while the Intel-founded Moblin project is built
| around the  Gnome Mobile platform. This already gives Nokia some entré into
| the world of Linux and Atom-powered devices.
