For mobile devices no one cares about the OS, its all about the applications: phone functionaility, web browsers, music player and sat nav.

Whilst Windows Mobile 6 and Pocket IE is the worst experiance imaginable, put Opera on the device and run it full screen, and it no longer matters whats underneath. For phone functionility Nokia has it swen up, and for music players no one looks like denting Apple's dominance.

If we ported RISC OS to an ARM based web tabet or ultra portable sub note book, it would probably only be existing RISC OS users that would buy it, and there just aren't enough of anymore to make it worthwhile.
