Linus Says 2008 Is The Year Of The Linux Phone
In an interview with Reuters on Friday, Linux founder and arch-developer Linus Torvalds announced his expectation that 2008 will be the year that Linux takes on the mobile phone market and wins.
Torvalds cited Google's commitment to develop Linux phone platform Android, as well as Motorola, T-Mobile, and Qualcomm's commitment to the project, as strong evidence that Linux smartphones will push significantly forward in the coming year. He went on to say that while he has not been personally involved in the development, and that none of the Linux handsets are currently available on the market, there are promising pre-release versions that he expects will be publicly available in 2008.
