"Global connectivity analysts ABI Research forecast that by
2013, Linux will take 23% of the smartphone market and will be the
second most prevalent solution behind Symbian. According to ABI,
"Linux solutions will be far more cost-effective than incumbent
solutions, even when silicon requirements are taken into account,
given that a fuller application layer will be included in the
standard package and that the burden of customisation falls mostly
on the independent software vendor.""
