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.

PS. I would even prefer Meego, but might have to travel to a parrallel universe to get it, so it might not be an option.


Well, Nokia will still ship at least one Harmattan device this year, if it's MeeGo enough.

I really hope Motorola would build on the MeeGo effort here, instead of doing a full custom thing.

If some foreign factory can crank out the best brick of hardware running a stock Google firmware with regular updates then it may be worth looking at to replace my N900 in a year or two. It's still a half gutted software stack limited to Google's closed door development and lack of rolling updates but it might be the best available.

Meego would be far more interesting though.. even with loosing access to the list of .deb packages I've collected for Maemo. A full distro that can run it's sandboxed apps, native apps or easily cross-compiled packages.. oh baby..

Here's hoping Nokia's N910/Meego can put one last solid link in the N### series. At this point, it's down to that or looking at a feature phone plus whatever tablet can run a proper Debian install.

Yeah, though I'm thinking of the same only for something like WebOS.

As Andriod just creates a fail taste in my mouth ;) must be all those java alike beans...
