Open Source in Mobile - Part I

,----[ Quote ]
| I attended OSiM in Amsterdam for a day (had to be back 
| to China the next day) and it was quite an interesting 
| and diverse crowd attending and/or speaking - hard core 
| open sourcers along with big fat OEMs trying to 
| leverage open source to make the most of it. In the 
| first Open Source in Mobile blog, I'll make an overview 
| of alternatives for building devices using open source 
| software. Apart from Windows Mobile, all software 
| stacks being used in Smartphones are now open sources.


Android Heading in More New Directions

,----[ Quote ]
| What will advanced Android-based smartphones look like 
| a year from now, and what will be under the hood? 
| Motorola would have you believe that they'll place very 
| heavy emphasis on unified social networking features. 
| Archos has its eyes on tablets that double as 
| smartphones, with advanced video capabilities. China 
| Mobile and others believe that Android will work best 
| in forked, unique versions.


Hands-on with Palm's Pixi webOS smartphone [review]

,----[ Quote ]
| And you know what? It just might do it. The Pixi is 
| lightweight, comes in colorful cases (as seen in the 
| photos) and is devoid of anything that sniffs of 
| business. In this situation, webOS serves as the 
| ultimate contact integration engine, and gets the job 
| done with color and flair.



Palm Pre: Top-notch smartphone, despite some hardware gaps

,----[ Quote ]
| Pre wins a lot of points for style. The black, shiny and
| uniform exterior looks great and the device is slight enough to
| fit easily in your pocket and in the palm of your hand. Its
| curved edges and simple design â there's only one visible
| button when the keyboard is closed â make it approachable. It's
| a phone you'll want to hold.


Palm dumps Windows Mobile

,----[ Quote ]
| PALM HAS SAID that it will be dropping the
| Windows Mobile operating system in favour
| of its own webOS platform.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
