| All this begs the question of which OS platform would Nokia choose? The N810
| runs on a Linux variant known as Maemo, which includes a Nokia-developed
| Gnome application framework dubbed Hildon.
| Hildon in turn has been adopted by Ubuntu for their Intel-endorsed Mobile
| Internet Device Edition, while the Intel-founded Moblin project is built
| around the  Gnome Mobile platform. This already gives Nokia some entré into
| the world of Linux and Atom-powered devices.
