Linux helps Motorola in China

Motorola's success with its Linux-based "Ming" phones in China may be an indication that the open-source platform is becoming a serious contender against Symbian and Windows Mobile in the handheld-device software platform arena. Motorola introduced the Ming smart phone to China in March and has shipped more than 1 million Linux-based units in China last quarter, according to research from Canalys. The firm says these shipments have helped Motorola keep the number two position in the smart-phone market. But Motorola still trails Nokia by a wide margin. Motorola said it will launch the Ming in other high-growth markets shortly.
