Poll: Can Nokia tackle Apple iPhone Linux battle?
Nokia Oyj will attempt to try and tackle Apple Inc’s iPhone again in the top end range of handsets in the market with a bet on Linux software.
The first high end phone will be running on Maemo, which is a version of Linux and is expected to be shown next week at the Nokia World event in Germany according to sources. Analysts have claimed that they don’t think it will become clear until at least next year whether this will help Nokia achieve its ambitions.
According to Neil Mawston from Strategy Analytics “it looks like Maemo, or at least a Linux derivative of some description.” Symbian, Nokia’s workhorse operating system controls half of the smartphone volume which is more than Apple, RIM Ltd and Google Inc put together.
