Chip giants establish Linux group for phones, TVs

,----[ Quote ]
| A group of chip makers including IBM, Samsung 
| Electronics and Texas Instruments on Thursday 
| unveiled Linaro, a new software-engineering 
| foundation dedicated to improving Linux 
| distributions, including Android, MeeGo and 
| Ubuntu, used in consumer devices.
| The new foundation hopes to take the success 
| Linux has seen in large enterprise software 
| and translate that to the consumer world of 
| TV, tablets, smartphones and netbooks, which 
| is dominated by several main OSes, including 
| Windows, Symbian, Blackberry and Apple's 
| iPhone OS.


ARM, allies invest in Linux for smartphones, tablets

,----[ Quote ]
| Chipmaker ARM and a group of allies have 
| joined forces to back a non-profit Linux 
| company to develop tools for cellphones, 
| tablet PC and similar small devices.
| The alliance with Freescale, IBM, Samsung, 
| ST-Ericsson and Texas Instruments was 
| announced yesterday at Computex 2010 and 
| significantly ups the stakes in the battle 
| for future mobile dominance.


ARM, Samsung, IBM, Freescale, TI and more join to form Linaro, speed rollout of Linux-based devices



Despite Intel backing, MeeGo Linux to support ARM chips

,----[ Quote ]
| MeeGo Linux is being developed as a
| platform for smartphones, netbooks,
| internet connected TVs, in-car systems, and
| other devices where Windows may not always
| be the best option. The project is backed
| by chip-maker Intel and smartphone maker
| Nokia. And so far, every device Iâve seen
| running MeeGo has had an Intel chip â
| usually a low power Intel Atom processor.
| But in an interview with The Inquirer,
| Nokia vice president Alberto Torres
| explained that MeeGo is an open platform
| and that it will be available for device
| makers to use on a wide variety of
| hardware. In fact, Nokiaâs first MeeGo
| device will have an ARM-based chip rather
| than an Intel x86 processor.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
