"There is a lot of momentum for Linux on handhelds, specifically for mobile phones," said Eirik Chambe-Eng, president and co-founder of Trolltech, a company that builds a graphical user interface on top of Linux for mobile devices which has joined the OSDL effort. But because an increasing number of companies are developing Linux for mobiles, there is a need to coordinate the efforts, he said.
Linux is a very good solution for mobile manufacturers in terms of cost, but also in that it may solve some of the problems that manufacturers face with building full-feature phones that may include cameras, color displays, video cameras and Web browsing.
