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.

I would definitely count symbian out. Its rapidly losing market share. Symbian 3 is only going out for one phone the N8 ( not yet released), which was widely panned in reviews. The Qt layer isn't coming out until Symbian 4 ( when ever that is) on who knows what phones. Contrast that to Android's current position, multiple big device makers all one upping each other in hardware and software features. Yeah, I'm counting symbian out as a smart phone OS.
