Alleged Nokia Linux smartphone plans exposed by leak
New information about Nokia's Linux strategy has been exposed through a leak. The company is allegedly planning to bring its Linux-based Maemo platform to smartphone devices in 2010.
Nokia has been hard at work building Maemo 5, the next major version of its Linux-based mobile platform. This new version, which is codenamed Fremantle, brings a user interface overhaul and some compelling new capabilities. Although Maemo 5 is still at the beta stage of development and Nokia has not yet announced when it will ship on actual hardware, details are already emerging about the version that will come next, which is codenamed Harmattan.
This could be interesting! One of the comments of the article suggests that Nokia may be trying to undertake too much if they keep using Symbian platform AND develop the Linux as well. I don't know enough about Nokia's divelopment intentions to give an opinion but it sounds like good advice to pick one or the other and put everything into it. Sometimes a good company can spread itself thin by trying to do too many things - it's a competative world out there in the smart phone business.
