PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless All hail the omnipresent people familiar with the matter.This time, these patrons of the internet have told InformationWeek that Motorola is not satisfied with Google's Android, and that the company is working on its own mobile operating system.

Personally, I hope more OS's keep popping up. I'd hate for every manufacturer to standardize on one OS. Especially, since there are now so many components available to make them.

Just pick a one of many software kernels, a good application framework, and Webkit (for the browser) along with a few ex-Palm employees and in about a year you'll have a nice embedded OS to use on your next Smartphone, Tablet or Set-top box.

Yes, my thoughts exactly. At this point the more the better. There will probably always be a couple of 'big onces' but getting more diversity then locked-in iPhones or java-alike-locked-in android phones can only be a good thing.

Motorola was also my first full Linux phone that I could get in a normal store, the Motorola A780. So although they may not be known as the coolest of the bunch the have done some nice things in the past.
