| long-rumored mobile phone software. Dubbed ndroid,the Linux-based
| software stack is being backed by more than 30 partners, including handset
| makers Motorola, Samsung, LG and HTC, and service providers Sprint Nextel,
| T-Mobile and NTT DoCoMo.
|
| But no Nokia. No AT&T or Verizon. No Apple or Palm. No Symbian, Microsoft or
| RIM. Without them, will Android matter at all?
|

| The day after Google Android announcement, the One Laptop Per Child
| Foundation said that its low-cost, Linux-based laptops for kids are finally
| rolling off the assembly line in China. The little green XO laptops, with
| their built-in mesh networking and low-power-consumption design, will start
| shipping to Uruguay and Mongolia shortly.
