This certainly confirms PalmSource’s investment in Linux… more and more companies are looking to Linux for all sorts of needs. PalmSource has said now that Cobalt will run on top of Linux, though I am not sure whether DoCoMo will create a new GUI for their phones or simply use it under the hood. They are still going to use Symbian as well so perhaps just a test to cover the bases.
NTT DoCoMo, which recently announced that three of its phones will be based on Linux, invests in U.S. vendor MontaVista Software. [Mobile Pipeline]
