| “Mobile Linux is coming. It’s the big platform,” said the CEO, who predicts

| iPhone wouldn't. It worked with nearly every worldwide cellphone carrier, not
| just AT&T, and not only in the U.S. It promised to cost half as much as the
| iPhone and be available to 10 times as many consumers. * * *
