Year of the foundations -December 22nd

By Magnus Ingelsten
As we have aggressively pursued Android from the very start we have realized the good strengths with Linux. Thus also recently we joined the LiMo foundation.
Our VP of Solutions Management, Andrew Till did a speech at the SEE in October on “Avoiding the pitfalls of open source”. This speech was much appreciated and since then we have created a whitepaper available from our web as well as it generated an article which was posted today on the LiMo foundation blog. http://blog.limofoundation.org/index.php/LiMo-Foundation/Avoiding-the-pitfalls-of-Open-Source-–-Part-1.html Enjoy reading, all of you that consider the uses of open source software, and how you get most out of it.

Yes, obviously we will continuously strive to support mobile linux including Maemo on which we have many engineers and experts engaged. And we are looking for more people and engineers to join our team right now.

And, not least, the Symbian Foundation with new phones from SonyEricsson, Samsung and Nokia hopefully will make great x-mas gifts and fuel a great 2010 for Symbian.

Yes, we are heading towards brighter times. The Christmas shopping in Sweden breaks an all times high, despite the financial crisis, Tokyo stock exchange just hit all year high. As well as a very happy Nasdaq, as I am writing these lines, makes the outlook for 2010 very encouraging.

So, A merry x-mas and a happy new year to all of you!
