Linux Gets Motorola Purring

The world No. 2 mobile phone maker, which debuted the Ming smartphone in March this year in China, shipped more than one million Linux-based units in China alone last quarter, according to research firm Canalys.

Other Linux-based Motorola smartphones that shipped recently in China include the Rokr E2 music phone and the sleek A1200 or Ming phone.
