Very interestingly, the current phone platforms are not robust enough to handle the future phones and it is universally accepted that there will be a change very soon. And it's also being predicted by everyone that the new platform will be on Linux. Perfect for PalmSource with PalmOS for Linux.

So with all that in mind, the "enemies" are Microsoft and what Patrick McVeigh referred to as another proprietary solution. I suppose he meant Symbian, but I guess he might have meant RIM/blackberry.
