Nokia bets on Linux

Maemo on the high end


Nokia is
going to use open-source Linux software Maemo on a high end smart phone.

The phone maker is expected to show its first high-end phone running on Maemo at the annual Nokia World event in Stuttgart, Germany next week. Nokia has been playing with Linux since 2005, using it in "internet tablets" but it looks like it is getting serious about Maemo.

Nokia has been a proud user of Symbian but most analysts think that Maemo is more flexible. It is also a better option for advanced devices using various display technologies and rapidly evolving user-interface software. The feeling is that Nokia needs to do a lot more to push itself in the smartphone market against the like of Apple and Google. Google also uses Linux in its Android product.
