OSIM 2007


OSiM, Open Source in Mobile, is a series of events dedicated to exploring the role of open source in the world of mobile phones. The latest installment was held in September in Madrid, Spain.

For every PC [1] in the world, there are at least three mobile phones [2], and thanks to a near 100% penetration in developed countries and massive sales in quickly developing countries such as India and China, the gap between handsets and computers on the market just keeps widening. OSiM [3] is the itinerant series of conferences that tries to address the issues of the use of open source in the mobile market. The 2007 edition of the event, held in September in Madrid, Spain, brought together industry leaders within the fields.
