New Mobile OS?
On May 11th Nokia and Intel jointly announced to develop new open source telephony solution. The name of the project is oFono (http://www.ofono.org). Most probably the new mobile OS will be based on Linux and it won’t have anything in common with the existing Nokia’s S60 mobile platform.
The interesting and natural question now is why – why will the two companies do this? Both of them has their own Linux-based mobile platforms – Nokia’s Maemo and Intel’s Moblin. It is not quite clear what the next steps will be. There isn’t any info on oFono site nor source code or anything else that may give you a hint what the plan is. In any case it is an interesting initiative especially when Android is out there.
