We're not sure if the higher ups put the spurs in 'em to get their latest version of Mobilinux out the door before
next month's big Windows Mobile 2005
(aka Magneto) announcement, but MontaVista,
the newest upstart in the mobile platform market announced their latest product, Mobilinux 4.0, which will feature
support for RFID, Bluetooth (huh?), and SAMBA (SMB—aka network file sharing), as well as a supposed 1-second boot time
(we'll believe it when we see it) and a whole bunch of other stuff they think is going to make them ballers up against
Symbian, PalmSource, and Microsoft.
