| The future is always an exciting place. Remember the "Star Trek" series, when
| the crew used communication systems or badges for translation, authentication
| and subspace links? Back on Earth, cell phones, PDAs and PCs continue to
| evolve toward those fictional devices, but users have the same expectations
| of features, availability, reliability, scalability and cost.

| This part sounds a bit more iffy, but the same source has also seen people
| from Nokia ( NYSE: NOK) and Verizon Wireless ( NYSE: VZ) at a recent Android
| developer conference. In general, in order to be an attendee, supposedly you

Nokia spreading software bets after Symbian buy

| Nokia says Symbian plays a central role in its software strategy, but
| analysts say the role of Linux in the company's Nokia phones is also set to
| increase, reflecting a mindset shift for a company that has long shunned

| "We already work together and so whatever collaboration, if there is an

Nokia and the battle for open source's soul

,----[ Quote ]
| The Finnish giant had, until now, kept out of the major alliances being
| formed in the mobile Linux space — the LiMo Foundation and the Google-led
| Open Handset Alliance (OHA) — because it could afford to. Enjoying 40 percent
| of the global handset market, and holding the largest stake in the
| market-leading Symbian platform, Nokia did not have to be quite as reactive
| as other manufacturers when it came to the open-source revolution. It was,
| however, inevitable that it would join the revolution and, after a suitable
| period of observer status, it chose the right time to do so.


Nokia looks beyond Symbian to Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| With a 47.9 percent stake in Symbian, the leading mobile platform that it
| co-founded in 1998 and which today powers some 206 million mobile phones,
| Nokia has long championed it at the expense of rival platforms such as Linux.
| No longer.
| The mobile-phone maker is increasingly selecting Linux for Internet-enabled
| mobile devices, with its CFO declaring of Linux, "It's going to be terribly
| important."
