Facebook is all set to launch its India operations from Hyderabad in less than two months. Facebook’s proposal to set up a unit in Raheja Mindspace SEZ here was approved by the Union Government.

Facebook is aggressively hiring people. Initially, they will be operating from an incubation centre in the SEZ. Facebook’s new operations centre in Hyderabad will supplement operations supported out of Palo Alto, California, Dublin, Ireland, and a recently-announced location in Austin, Texas. The Hyderabad office will be Facebook’s first office in the Asian region.

Facebook has been allotted about 50,000 sq ft space and is going to recruit close to 500 people for running its operations. Facebook, which has nearly 8 million subscribers in India, would reportedly invest USD 150 million in the initial phases. It has more than 400 million active users worldwide. Facebook had recently announced that it would invest in India by opening an office in Hyderabad, where it is expected to build a world-class team to support a growing number of users, advertisers and developers from India and across the world.

Nokia to use New Linux based OS MeeGoo instead of Symbian for N-series phones.

Nokia Linux mobile Ubuntu

Nokia will use Linux MeeGo software in its N-series lineup, hoping the new platform will give it a better chance to battle against rivals such as Apple Inc and Google Inc.

The N-series has been Nokia’s crown jewel for years and it dominated the smartphone market before Apple’s iPhone was introduced in 2007.Nokia’s next flagship smartphone, the N8, will be the last N-series phone running Symbian software. Symbian remains the market leader for smartphones, but has lost market share in recent years with the rise of the iPhone.”Going forward, N-series devices will be based on MeeGo,” said Nokia spokesman Doug Dawson.

Nokia and Intel Corp in February unveiled plans to create MeeGo, merging Nokia’s Linux Maemo software platform with Intel’s Moblin, which is also based on Linux open-source software.”The confirmation that MeeGo will be used for the next flagship Nseries device shows Nokia is betting the ranch on this platform to beat high-end rivals such as Apple’s iPhone,” said Ben Wood, research director at British consultancy CCS Insight.

Versions of the Linux operating system — also including Google’s Android, operator-backed LiMo and Palm’s webOS — have won increased share of the mobile device market.In the first quarter the total market share of Linux phones rose to 14 percent from 8.5 percent a year ago, according to Gartner.

Linux is the most popular type of open-source computer operating system available to the public. Its direct rival on PCs is Microsoft, which charges for its Windows software and opposes freely sharing its code.
