Nokia Funding Minimo

Friday June 18th, 2004

CNET News.com is reporting that Nokia is funding Minimo. The Minimo project aims to build a version of Mozilla that can run on small devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. Nokia began funding development last year but has not yet shipped any Minimo-powered phones, with most of the company's lineup currently using Opera's smartphone browser.

"in my opinion mozilla is a foundation that JUST supports open-source-products. the only connection to closed source is the lgpl and probably mpl"

Don't forget all the meetings they have with potential vendors of proprietary Mozilla-based products. The licenses are designed to allow Mozilla technology to be used in proprietary products. The whole Mozilla project was started by and (initially) funded by Netscape, a vendor of proprietary, closed-source software.
