Wireless Operators to Standardize Mobile Interface [informationweek.com]
As smartphones proliferate and more consumers have mobile Internet access, mobile applications will become increasingly popular. But application developers face the challenge of having to develop for a wide range of devices, as well as security concerns.

With that in mind, a group of mobile operators Tuesday unveiled an initiative that seeks to create a standard and secure mobile Web service interface that can be used across multiple devices.

Known as BONDI, the initiative is backed by members of the Open Mobile Terminal Platform, or OMTP, which includes AT&T , T-Mobile, and Vodafone .

Android anyone?

Or maybe just plain old Linux, that could do the job too?

Keeping up with the players and platforms seems like it is difficult even for interested press...

"The move comes as mobile app competition heats up. Apple's iPhone application store is set to go live with the release of the iPhone 3G, and one analyst predicts it could soon be a $1.2 billion business. It will be battling applications from Windows Mobile, the open source Symbian, and Google (NSDQ: GOOG)'s Android operating system."

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Nokia acquire Symbian? Or perhaps the author just like's to publish mention only for certain "listed" public tech/telecom companies.

Indeed Nokia did purchase Symbian, only to turn it over to the "not for profit" Symbian Foundation. I like Symbian, and I like Nokia, what I don't like is my slow as a snail S60 based E62, sad..
