Open Source Development Lab in Oregon Monday announced its Mobile Linux Initiative, a move the organization said was aimed at maximizing commercial opportunities for Linux-based mobile devices.

Linux boosters are confident that the booming mobile market has room for the operating system that is already gaining acceptance from manufacturers due to what Lab CEO Stuart Cohen called "its unmatched interoperability to deliver new capabilities in advanced handsets."
