"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."
