Intel to announce Linux Mobile Internet Device

Dan Warne writes "Intel will shortly announce that its future "Mobile Internet Devices" and UMPCs will be Linux-powered, using a custom version of the Chinese Red Flag distribution.

The Red Flag distro has a slick, iPhone-like user interface.

For Intel, its future success with mobile devices is now unhitched from the loping Microsoft behemoth, but at the same time, it begs the question, will the success of its devices depend on the responsiveness of the open-source community?
APCMag.com has posted some interesting screenshots and pics of one of the devices."
