The Open Source Development Labs, an industry consortium devoted to improving Linux, plans to launch an initiative on Monday to bring the open source operating system to mobile phones. OSDL’s Mobile Linux Initiative is intended to improve Linux for the small, but increasingly powerful, devices.

Although this is generally a good thing. One thing I think is lacking very badly is interoperability between Linux distro’s and current generation phones.
My SE P900 is a good phone – but there’s fat chance of getting it to work with Linux. Unfortunately, syncing with Windows is a piece of cake
I want choice, I want linux, but no-one seems to be doing any work in this area. Before anyone comes back with the “code it yourself” remark – I use linux, that doesn’t necessarily mean i’m a programmer!
