First look at Linux Greenphone

Trolltech is the company that brought developers the Linux-based mobile application platform Qtopia, based on its Qt platform. In mid-August it also used the LinuxWorld conference to announce the Greenphone, which is thought to be the first fully reprogrammable Linux phone.

Trolltech hopes the Greenphone could help grow the mobile Linux market, by encouraging developers to create applications for Linux-powered devices. sister site ZDNet UK met with co-chief executive Haavard Nord (pictured) in central London to see the device, which will go on sale to developers at the end of September.,39024665,39162166-1,00.htm
