Qualcomm's next-generation MSM6550 cell phone chips will feature support for Linux.
Analysts said Qualcomm's support of Linux represents a broader acceptance of open-source technologies.

Motorola has already launched a Linux-based phone in Asia and has plans to roll out a model in the U.S. sometime next year. NEC and Nokia also support Linux.
