Motorola launches operating system for mobile devices

Motorola has announced MobileOS, a configurable operating system geared for use in small embedded applications such as pagers, cellular phones and games. The MobileOS is designed to divide complex application programs into independent tasks, and can run up to 256 tasks simultaneously, which makes them run faster, Motorola officials say.
