Red Hat pitches Open Source mobile phone OS

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "Red Hat is to pitch an open source operating system at smartphones manufacturers
- but it won't be Linux. In partnership with 3G Lab, it'll tweak the embedded Cygnus
OS (eCos) for use in 3G devices under the name eCos/M3." Getting eCos/M3 off the ground won't be an easy task; a similar project at Symbian (also starting with a mature OS), using some of the mobile industry's best and brightest minds, took three years to complete.
