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.

Not hunch, current market trends. Nokia and RIM are loosing smartphone market share to Apple and Google.

So market trends dictate what content will be made available? That's not something you can deduce from market trends (apart from app availability - the rest is about contracts with content producers).

Nokia is a challenger in a high end. It's not really losing marketshare in the us, because it never had any - what Nokia has to do is *gain* share there. Right now, Nokia has no phones that can do that (N900 is for "high end users", so to speak, and N97 sucks), but this will change.

Nokia will have to get past that with LiMo which I doubt will happen.

Again - Nokia has absolutely nothing to do with LiMo.
