| The hack utilizes OpeniBoot, a Linux 2.6 
| bootloader that works with first- and 
| second-generation iPhones. The system 
| provides dual-boot functionality, allowing 
| users to run either the iPhone OS or 
| Android.

Rumor: Sony Ericsson Set To Launch X10 With AT&T [Source From AT&T Says Android Smartphone From SE Coming In July]

,----[ Quote ]
| Our fearless leader Andrew really liked the 
| Sony Ericsson Experia X10 when he got his 
| hands on it at a SE press event a few 
| months ago. Rumors have persisted for a 
| while that the device was coming to the 
| âStates with AT&T for a few months, but 
| now, a source within AT&T is saying that 
| the phone is definitely coming.



So, What's a Little Android?

,----[ Quote ]
| Lately, it seems as if quite a few people are
| concerned about the status of Android as a
| Linux fork. There is quite a bit of talk
| about re-admitting the Android Linux kernel
| into the vanilla Linux kernel source.
| Chris DiBona commented on many things in
| Android being irrelevant to the majority of
| Linux users, such as mobile phone chipsets.
| Is most of the kernel relevant to most
| people, or is it that we de-select the
| majority of device drivers when we do our
| kernel configs? I think that the latter is
| more the case, and quite often we de-select
| the vast majority of filesystems. For most
| people, NTFS, FAT, Ext2/3/4, swap, proc, and
| sysfs are really all that is required. A few
| may get into Reiser (what a killer
| filesystem), JFS, Squashfs, and UnionFS for
| particular machines. So, why is there a fuss
| over certain things making little difference
| to main stream Linux users, when most things
| in the Linux kernel are irrelevant to start
| with?
