PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The GNOME foundation and the LiMo group announced a partnership to help push Linux forward in the consumer field. The only notice that anyone has seem to have taken is mockery. So why can someone announce some dedication to promoting open source software in the mobile space and generate no enthusiasm in the mobile space? Android.

So Android is among the bottom 4 mobile OSs and it has won? Also no one has a monopoly, and the race is over? Dana, you are dreaming. The iPhone came out of the blue and managed to perform strongly in a short time. The Android has also been performing well of late. When you have this much volatility in a market, you cannot declare a winner.


The game is just starting, no matter what some "tech freelancer" decides to write to bolster his hit count and subsequently paycheck.

A few years ago people would have laughed if you said Android will surpass iPhone soon, yet that's something that's happening now. There are many players in the market that have what it takes to win over Android (including Nokia, [disclaimer: my employer]).
