"Unlike the desktop PC industry there are more than 30 operating systems existing today in the mobile phone industry, over 20 of which are Linux based," comments Sravan Kundojjala, Analyst at Strategy Analytics. "This has been a concern for the industry, but recent moves suggest consolidation is in the cards."

Stuart Robinson, Director of the Handset Component Technologies service, adds, "Strategy Analytics believes recent initiatives by Google and Motorola could solve problems like consistency of APIs, slow adoption of mobile Linux in developed markets and fragmentation. We also believe that interest in Linux is at an all-time high and that it will emerge as a worthy competitor to market leaders Symbian and Windows Mobile."
