Build Your Own Linux App for Motorola Phones


Never has there been a better time to be an aspiring mobile application developer. Motorola announced its new mobile Linux platform this morning and two new plug-ins for developing apps for Motorola Linux/Java phones. The platform has been dubbed MOTOMAGX (in keeping with the all-caps-all-the-time phenomenon) and the two plug-ins and upcoming SDKs are for native Linux and WebUI applications (think Web 2.0, widgets and stuff).

As mentioned yesterday, Motorola introduced a Java ME™ SDK back in March. The first handsets based on the MOTOMAGX platform (which supports Java ME apps) are the MOTOROKR Z6 and the Motorola RAZR2 V8.

Now for a little trivia. How many Linux-based handsets has Motorola sold worldwide?

  1. At least half a million
  2. At least a million
  3. At least 5 million
  4. At least 9 million
  5. At least 19 million

Answer after the jump.

Motorola has sold more 9 million Linux-based handsets worldwide… primarily in China.
