Author: JT Smith

NewsAlert posts this Reuters report: "U.S. software and services company Red Hat and Britain's closely held 3G Lab said on Monday they will develop a "Linux
for the wireless world" as they team up to write an operating system for Web phones. The two companies will take on established names such as Psion-owned Symbian and Microsoft which have already developed their own operating
systems for a new generation of smartphones and between them gained support of all of the major mobile phone manufacturers.

The first smartphones, designed to display email, run calendars and play games and video clips, will hit the market later this year."
