The ABI study examines the pros and cons of the major smartphone operating systems, including the big three: Symbian, Windows Mobile, and embedded Linux. According to Philip Solis, senior analyst and author of the study, Symbian's chief advantages are that it is easy to build applications for, and that it has a large developer community. Disadvantages are that Symbian is primarily limited to Nokia handsets, and its market is concentrated in "GSM-heavy" regions, Solis says."</i><br /><br />It seems obvious to me that at some point MS will dominate the Smartphone OS market. This article references Palm trying to stop drowning by putting itself on top of Linux. If they do all 10 of the Linux Smartphone owners can have the incredible Palm interface too! :lol:
