Linux Inside Your Smartphone

Chances are the cell phone in your hand runs on some variant of Unix or Linux. Yes, even your Blackberry.

It is no secret that Ubuntu Linux is developing an OS for the smart phone. So is Firefox. The leading browser of the world is building an open source Linux powered OS targeting low end smartphones. But they are not the only ones getting Linux onto smart phones and into our hands. Many telecom vendors including Nokia, Samsung, and Palm (now defunct WebOS) too have had Linux powered phones. Some were a success and others a dud.
