[vox] [fwd] LinuxDevices Newsletter for Dec. 3, 2008



I got my weekly(?) newsletter from LinuxDevices.com a few weeks back,
and, while I haven't had time to actually read all of the interesting
articles, there were just SO many that sounded so interesting that I
decided I needed to pass it along to 'vox'.  Enjoy! :)

PORTING ANDROID TO A NEW DEVICE
This paper describes the how Android 1.0 was first ported to Nokia's
N810 Internet tablet. A fascinating, well-told tale in its own right, it
may also help others to gauge the time and resources that may be
required for similar porting projects.

LINUX PORTED TO IPHONE
iPhone-Dev.org has demonstrated a basic Linux 2.6 kernel and OpeniBoot
bootloader for first- and second-generation Apple iPhones, as well as
the first-generation Touch. The port lacks support for touchscreen,
audio, WiFi, or cellular communications, but future plans call for an
Android port.

NOKIA ALLUDES TO LINUX PHONE PLANS
Nokia may move to Linux for some of its higher end smartphones, a senior
official was quoted as saying in a Reuters article. Nokia VP Ukko
Lappalainen was quoted as saying, "In the longer perspective, Linux will
become a serious alternative for our high-end phones."
