Linux Trounces Windows Mobile

Robert Scoble better look at this. Looks like linux is outshipping Windows Mobile for smartphones according to Gartner. Linux phones up 412% with 14% of the market and windows Mobile up 50% with 4.5% of the market. Hmm, makes you wonder what all the hype about windows mobile is about. Looks like a lot of manufacters have decided what is better/cheaper for them.

“Of the 180 million mobile terminals shipped in Q1 2005, Gartner says 8.4 million were “smart phones”—devices with complex operating systems such as Linux, Symbian, Palm OS or Windows Mobile. In other words, about 1.2 million Linux smart phones shipped in Q1 2005, along with just under 400,000 Windows Mobile devices.”
