Article title: Nokia released its first Linux mobile phone N900. Linux is a technology channel of the IT lab in China. Includes basic categories such as desktop applications, Linux system management, kernel research, embedded systems, and open source.
According to foreign media reports, Nokia, the world's largest mobile phone manufacturer, launched its first Linux-based high-end mobile phone, Nokia N900, on Thursday.
The Nokia N900 will be designed with a touch screen and a side-slide keyboard with a retail price of approximately 500 euros (about $712) (excluding subsidies and taxes ). Most Nokia smartphones use the Symbian operating system. Therefore, the operating system occupies more than half of the market share in the smartphone field, surpassing the total share of competitors Apple, RIM, and Google.
Nokia said it will use both the Symbian and Linux operating systems in the high-end mobile phone field. Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia sales director, told the media: "This will not threaten the status of Symbian. Open-source software Symbian will remain our main platform, and we will do our best to improve it in terms of functionality and promotion. We will use the Symbian operating system in more product lines. "
Nokia N900 will use ARM Cortex-A8 processors. Fan Yoji said: "With the arm energy management feature we are using, at least today, we can see that the mobile phone processor is far more than the Intel architecture processor. "
Linux is the most popular open-source operating system software, while Microsoft's Windows operating system charges users and refuses to disclose their code.
