LinuxDevices presents this informative interview with Roger Kung, Chairman and CEO of E28, a Linux smartphone startup in Shanghai, China. E28 was the first company to ship a Linux smartphone, and could unveil a Linux smartphone for the US as early as the Boston LinuxWorld Expo.
Roger Kung is well-known in the mobile phone industry, having served as President of Motorola's Asia operation, which he grew from annual sales of $200 million to $4 billion. Kung strongly advocated Linux smartphones at Motorola, and he retired from Motorola in 2002 to found E28, a company entirely focused on Linux smartphones.
Our exclusive interview with Kung and E28 CTO Nathan Wang explores trends in China's burgeoning mobile phone market, the advantages Linux brings to smartphones, why feature-phones and fashion-phones are a flash in the pan, and E28's plan to boost Linux into worldwide smartphone domination.
