PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Sources tell us that Nokia is developing a Linux-based replacement for its S40 phones, called Meltemi. The news was leaked, accurately, by the Wall Street Journal last week. Now we can confirm it. The thinking is that a Linux-based replacement for S40 will allow developers to tap into proven development tools - and Qt. The April memo referred to Meltemi as a platform for 'rich Featurephones' and stated that development will be centered in Ulm, Germany. There's no U-turn, however. Meltemi had been long-been touted as a richer successor to S40. Windows phones will occupy the budget smartphone segment, not Linux."

Member since:

Maybe slightly broader, more tied to one specific OS - not only DE, but sort of also and/or its toolkit (or maybe Wayland, seeing like it seems to Linux-exclusive, if it had a toolkit)

Series-nomenclature is even older, there's also (still) Series 30 in lowest-end (even ~20€) "dumbphones" (though some of them come with mp3 player now; and some old S30 ones, 3510i for example, had j2me and gprs - but that role quickly went to S40)
