Mobilinux - a Linux solution for mobile devices

MontaVista is set to take on the might of Symbian and Microsoft as it moves to drive Linux further into use as an OS in mobile phones with the launch of the Mobilinux Open Framework programme.

The primary goal of this program is to provide mobile handset vendors and operators with the architectural freedom to create and deliver differentiated products and services. Through this program, mobile handset vendors will build and ship devices featuring the latest technologies more quickly and more efficiently, while reducing overall development costs.

The program has been widely endorsed by the mobile industry with initial support from the following software vendors and handset integrators: ACCESS, Aplix, ARM, Cellon International Holding Corp., COSMOBIC Technology Co., Ltd., Esmertec, E28, InnoPath Software, Jaluna, Openwave, Opera, PalmSource, Pollex Mobile Software, RealNetworks, SKY MobileMedia, Teleca, Texas Instruments, and TTPCom.

According to LinuxDevices, the currentl Mobilinux 4.0 is based on a 2.6 kernel with real-time and power-management enhancements:

Mobilinux borrows CEE's power management technology, along with a phone-oriented subset of Pro's approximately 200 applications. Unlike the company's 3x-series distributions, however, Mobilinux includes a 2.6-series kernel with much better real-time performance, as well as a more modern C-library and compiler (glibc 2.3.3 and gcc 3.4.3), the company claims.

I see that PalmSource is also mentioned. But doesn't MontaVista work against the interests of PalmSource? After all, PalmSource is investing heavily to bring its own Linux-based mobile OS out, and now you have some framework that could allow other vendors to incorporate Linux as well, for a friction of the money PalmSource has invested.
