10 million phones with Linux this year

Posted on Tuesday, August 14 2007 @ 06:15:28 CEST by

It's believed that handsets with a Linux-based operating system will account for 10 million phones this year, or about 10% of the smartphone market. Most of these phones are made by Motorola:
During the still ongoing LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2007 (Aug 6-9) held in San Francisco, Motorola said the company had already shipped 9 million Linux-based handsets worldwide. In the next few years, nearly 60% of Motorola's handsets will adopt the Linux platform. The company on August 8 announced Motomagx, its next generation mobile Linux platform.

According to a survey from Canalys, Linux systems accounted for less than 6% of smartphones shipped globally in 2006, trailing after Symbian's 67% share and Microsoft's share of 14%. RIM (Research in Motion) had about a 7% share last year.

Motorola accounted for around 90% of overall Linux-based handsets shipped in 2006. Other Linux handset providers include Panasonic, NEC and Samsung Electronics, Canalys pointed out.
