[News] Mobile Linux Touted as Open, Flexible by Many

Hash: SHA1

ACCESS extends its Linux platform family

| “The openness and flexibility of Linux are driving innovation in mobile 
| phones and Internet-enabled devices,” said Toru Arakawa, CEO, president and 
| co-founder of ACCESS.  


How open will mobile go?

| Motorola is releasing new Android kit, Symbian is doing some heavy schmoozing 
| for the open source version of its software, and remaining players are 
| changing their names to go open source.  


Symbian is a software patent lobbyist and it's DRM-laden. It's therefore

Nokia’s Maemo 5 open-source Linux OS promises faster, more powerful Internet

| Nokia’s little Linux-based, open-source darling has really blossomed into one

| of the global handset market, and holding the largest stake in the
| market-leading Symbian platform, Nokia did not have to be quite as reactive
| as other manufacturers when it came to the open-source revolution. It was,
| however, inevitable that it would join the revolution and, after a suitable
| period of observer status, it chose the right time to do so.


Nokia embraces Ubuntu OS
