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.

RE[2]: ? - Nokia?

Between Symbian and Maemo which merged with Limo renaming to Meego, I bet Nokia is at least one vendor who will use something other than Android or WinMobile.

Nokia hasn't merged anything. MeeGo and Symbian are completely separate platforms. Which is part of Nokia's problem. How many platforms do they have? I have no idea. But they're not integrated. They're hoping that QT will tie it all together and keep the developers from revolting, but who knows if that will work.

Right now they have platforms that are years behind Android, iPhone, and even Windows Mobile 7 (which looks like will come out later this year).

Sadly, if any mobile company could pull off a top-notch game changing OS, it's Nokia. They just seem to lack the vision Apple had with a new way of doing smartphones, the guts that Microsoft had in throwing out it's old platform (Nokia, listening?). They have the technical acumen and the money, and even the experience.
