Smarter Than Phones

,----[ Quote ]
| T-Mobile's Android phone hit only last October 17, 2008, early in Q4. Here's 
| a telling quote from the report: “Motorola, currently holding onto fourth 
| place in smartphones thanks largely to its Linux-based models, recently 
| announced it would move away from using the Symbian OS and focus more on 
| Android.” Which is also Linux.

,----[ Quote ]
| General Mobile demonstrated a dual-SIM, XScale-based Android cameraphone last 
| week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Based on a design by Chinese 
| telecom ODM (original design maker) Yuhua (aka Yuhuatel), the DSTL1 could be 
| among the first Android phones to ship, when it launches this summer.

Android ported to Nokia N810

,----[ Quote ]
| If you're looking for a nice read, something interesting to engage you while
| you sit and have a coffee and a pastry over at your favorite coffee shop,
| look no further than this writeup over at LinuxDevices. It's an excellent
| in-depth discussion about porting Android 1.0 to the Nokia N810, written by a
| guy who actually did so.

A Sprint Android Phone for 2009?

,----[ Quote ]
| Bloomberg.com reports that Sprint will be one of the first wireless providers
| to take advantage of the open Google Android platform and hopes to have a
| model available within a year. T-Mobile released the first Android-run
| smartphone, the G1, a couple of months ago.
|
| The site reports that by offering an Android-based smartphone, Sprint plans
| to take a bite out of the iPhone's market share. Apple's smartphone now
| commands 16 percent of the world's smartphone market.

LiMo Says Vodafone's Android Support Shouldn't Fragment the Mobile Linux Space

,----[ Quote ]
| Vodafone's membership in the Google-led Open Handset Alliance isn't
| necessarily a bad thing for the LiMo Foundation, which makes an open-source
| mobile operating system based on Linux that some see as vying for smartphone
| supremacy with Google's Android mobile and wireless stack. LiMo's Morgan
| Gillis says overlap among Android, LiMo and Symbian camps is par for the
| course as they combat Windows Mobile, RIM and the Apple iPhone.
|
| [...]
|
| Despite this hole, is Vodafone still backing LiMo? Absolutely, a Vodafone
| spokesperson told eWEEK, noting that joining the OHA means Vodafone will be
| able to work with the Android platform alongside other operating platforms
| such as LiMo, Symbian, Microsoft and RIM, improving customer choice.

Android answers call for free smartphone software

,----[ Quote ]
| Google decided to create a better operating system for mobile phones, just as
| Microsoft’s Windows helps a user to operate a PC. Unlike Windows, however,
| Google’s software for mobiles, called Android, would be free and “open
| source”.
|
| The open source concept has been used in other technological advances ranging
| from web browsers, such as Mozilla’s Firefox, to operating systems, such as
| Linux. It means that programmers and developers can have access to the code
| behind the software, essentially its DNA.

| Texas Instruments OMAP3 system-on-chip (SoC). The demo will be held this week
| at Embedded Technology 2008 in Yokohama, Japan. Last month, MontaVista
| announced that its distribution had been optimized for the Cortex-A8-based
| OMAP3 SoCs.
