Nokia to adopt Linux for high-end phones?

Posted on Sunday, December 07 2008 @ 00:10:25 CET by

Nokia announced it may start using Linux on its more expensive phone models. Ukko Lappalainen, vice president at Nokia's markets unit, said Linux will become a serious alternative for their high-end phones, while stating he doesn't see anything in the Google Android platform that would make it better than Linux maemo.
"In the longer perspective, Linux will become a serious alternative for our high-end phones," Ukko Lappalainen, vice president at Nokia's markets unit, told Reuters in an interview on the sidelines of the "Nokia World" industry conference.

Linux's role in the handset industry is growing as Google has introduced its Linux-based Android platform, but Lappalainen said Nokia was likely to stick to its own Linux development.

Nokia uses Linux maemo software in its niche offering of Internet tablets, while it uses Symbian software for its phones.
