Linux Last week's release of MeeGo v1 is an effort by US chip maker Intel and European cellular giant Nokia to enter the mobile OS arena. Will it be able to compete? While Apple and Google vie for market dominance, MeeGo offers itself as a 3rd choice with strong Linux roots.

Take a look at QT Mobility project.
It will give you a portable way to access mobile phone sensors (Acceleration, Position...), camera, contacts, calendar, SMS/MMS ...
When all this will be release quality it will cover over 90% of the needs of phone app developers.
So you could write a program and compile for everything, all in ANSI C++ and QT (close to java's write once, run everywhere).

Unfortunately IPhone and Android will not be supported anytime soon.
