Nearly 20% of Mid- and High-End Mobile Devices Will Run a Linux Operating
System by 2013, According to ABI Research

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux, which has been much maligned by Symbian and Microsoft as a non-starter
| in the handset operating system market, is set to see strong growth as issues
| with framework fragmentation and silicon requirements are alleviated. The
| growing momentum behind the LiMo Foundation initiative, as well as the
| marketing boost that has been realized from the entry of Google’s Android
| solution has been further enhanced by Nokia’s support of the Maemo solution
| and its purchase of Trolltech. ABI Research believes that by 2013, nearly one
| out of every five mid- or high-end mobile devices will use a Linux operating *
| system. * * *
