| New entrants to the market including
| Google's (GOOG) Android will continue to
| snap at Symbian's heels, according to market
| watchers In-Stat, with the company also
| seeing increasing competition from a new
| quarterâMaemo, a Linux-based OS for mobile
| devices.
| "New OSes such as Android and Maemo will cut
| away at Symbian market share," Allen Nogee,
| In-Stat analyst, said in a statement,
| adding: "Although there are relatively few
| open source OS-based smartphones in the
| market today, the open source OS momentum is
| difficult to ignore."

| Nokia plans to release a mass-market, Linux-
| based Maemo smartphone to compete with
| Apple's iPhone in the second half of 2010,
| according to UBS analyst Maynard Um.
| Although the move appears to signal an
| increasing reliance by Nokia on Maemo at the
| expense of Symbian, a Nokia spokesman said
| the company still considers the Symbian
| platform its main smartphone operating system.
