Mobilinux is based on open source and open standard technology, designed for scalability and maximized battery power usage for single-chip mobile phones. More than 35 million phones and other mobile devices run on Mobilinux, far more than any other commercial Linux.

Mobilinux is powered by a version 2.6 Linux kernel, and offers less than one second boot times, and an event broker. It also includes Advanced Linux Sound Architecture ALSA sound driver support for Embedded systems, standard on the Linux 2.6.21+ kernels.
