"With no completely official announcement forthcoming from the company, it's hard to guess exactly where the future of Motorola smartphones lies -- but that isn't stopping industry types speculating that Android will become the company's exclusive platform, with both Symbian and Windows Mobile ousted in favour of the open-source marvel. Whether that's the best move the company could make -- especially when its financials are looking a mite peaky – remains to be seen.

"With companies like HTC and General Mobile already committed to the platform, it's clear that -- despite a somewhat shaky start in the T-Mobile G1 -- Google's Linux-based open-source system is making waves in the industry. With Motorola clearly planning to produce Android devices -- even if not exclusively -- 2009 could well be the year that mobile Linux really starts to make an impact in the mainstream."
