Open Sourcing the smart(phone) world : )

Nokia announced a partnership with Intel.the two companies are merging their odd, half-finished, Linux-based OSs into one crazy little package called... MeeGo.
The formula goes like this
maemo + moblin=MeeGo:)
The MeeGo software platform will be hosted by the Linux Foundation as a fully open source project, encouraging community participation in line with the best practices of the open source development model. Intel and Nokia invite the respective members of and to join the combined community at, as well as encouraging wider participation from the communications, computing and related industries. Developers can begin writing applications for MeeGo in Qt immediately. The first release of MeeGo is targeted for the second quarter of this year.

Well ,it has opened challenge for Google's Android.MeeGo will be a "software platform that will support multiple hardware architectures across the broadest range of device segments, including pocketable mobile computers, netbooks, tablets, mediaphones, connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems."
With these open source smartOSs hitting the market high (with samsung Bada,AAVA's first open hanset etc etc) they are clearly Open Sourcing the smart(phone) world : )
& Lets not forget to mention Symbian being open source & its poster saying we are now open source.

See ya there at ./
