I've noted in previous posts that Motorola is banking on Android. With competition between RIM, Palm, Apple, Google, Nokia, and other players - pressure is really mounting in the mobile embedded sector. Inevitably, as new entrants compete in the market, cost will become more of a factor.
Related to this thought, an article from informatinonweek discusses pressure on Symbian from rivals. What I found most interesting was the observation that smart phones are out selling notebooks - fascinating!.
