And, what about dual booting WM 6.5 Prof and Android, on a HTC Touch2 T3333? Is it possible?

If you mean by volume shipped, then the answer is clearly none.

On the existing memory? Probably not. (Although I have no idea of the relevant specs of a T3333, which would be necessary for a definitive answer.) Oh, and probably illegal, too.

yeah I think that most of the manufacturers actually use their own operating system. There are your main industry leaders (like iOS4 and Windows Mobile). I don't know of any mobile devices off the top of my head that run, or plan to run Linux.

Um, every device that runs Android or WebOS? Both of them use the Linux kernel.

Symbian OS - about half now. (not Linux)
Quote:
The complete Gartner forecast for smartphone OSes by the end of 2012 puts Symbian on top with 203 million devices sold, and 39% of the market. Android will be second with nearly 76 million units sold, and 14.5% of the market.

Coming in a close third, the iPhone will ship on 71.5 million devices in 2012, giving a 13.7% market share. Windows Mobile will finish fourth, with 66.8 million units sold, or 12.8% of the market.
So, experts are predicting Android.
