Motorola launched an open source website this morning. Hosted by leading open source community Source Forge, houses several projects. The available code ranges from drivers for the company's Linux powered handsets to the new MIDP 3.0 Java engine.

By sharing source code and projects and opening up a clear channel for exchange, Motorola also hopes to encourage its allies in the mobile industry to work more closely with the open source community to speed the development and deployment of open source applications for the mobile industry.
