Samsung eyes Linux push this year

The world's second-largest cellphone maker, Samsung Electronics, will start to sell several phones using open-source Linux software platforms this year, a senior executive told Reuters in an interview.

Won-Pyo Hong, head of product strategy, said the firm would start selling more than three phones using Google's Android software by the end of the year and would "definitely" unveil a phone using LiMo's Linux software this year.
