Motorola Also Infected

motorolaLogo.jpgCell Phone Blog:

Motorola developed a new platform for their devices, based on Linux. The name of the new platform is Motomagx. It is based on Linux and developed with an aim, to give third-party developers a possibility to develop applications for Motorola mobile phones. For those purposes the programmers of Motorola are working now at some kind of framework that should make developing of applications for Motomagx more simply.

I used to like the Motorola phone. I have owned a Motorola Razr for years. Very cool-looking phone, with proper, reliable commercial software. And now they're saying Motorola is also jumping the Linux bandwagon?

It seems time for me to switch to another brand of phone. It's getting harder to pick one though, quite a few brands use open source stuff now. There's a lot of open source stuff also on Nokia phones. Maybe I should get a Windows Mobile phone of some sort.
