Linux on Cell Phones

In the "Wow Linux is Everywhere" Department...

Slashdot | DoCoMo to Use Linux on Phones: "' has an announcement that NTT DoCoMo in collaboration with NEC and Panasonic have developed a Linux based software platform for third generation cell phones. 'The main advantage of the new platform will be easy integration of advanced multi-media applications and efficient use of software,' NEC spokeswoman Akiko Shikimori said.' This was first reported about a year ago, but the platform looks to be mostly done by now, and a new press release timed to remind us of its impending release."

-- I just found out the other day that my TiVo runs Linux under the hood. Nice!
