[vox] Interview: Roger Kung of E28 (Linux Smartphone company)

CEO Interview: Roger Kung of E28

  LinuxDevices presents this exclusive interview with Roger Kung,
  Chairman and CEO of E28, a Linux smartphone startup in Shanghai, China.
  E28 was the first company to ship a Linux smartphone, and could
  unveil a Linux smartphone for the US as early as the Boston LinuxWorld Expo.

  Roger Kung is well-known in the mobile phone industry, having served
  as President of Motorola's Asia operation, which he grew from annual
  sales of $200 million to $4 billion.  Kung strongly advocated Linux
  smartphones at Motorola, and he retired from Motorola in 2002 to found
  E28, a company entirely focused on Linux smartphones.

Interestingly, Motorola is the one big cellphone company that's already
stepping into the Linux-based cellphone game [1], so apparently, his advocacy
worked. ;^)

I got a chance to see the E2800+ at LinuxWorld Expo in SF this month.
It's pretty neat looking! [2]
