The mobile operating system Symbian, used in phones and other handhelds, will offer native Wi-Fi support: Version 9.3 will sport as part of an update support for Wi-Fi. This should make it easier to use VoIP over Wi-Fi without a developer or manufacturer having to integrate a separate network stack. Phones featuring this version of Symbian would probably appear at the beginning of 2007, according to this ZDNet article.
Several efforts are underway to insert Wi-Fi at the OS level into more operating systems, including Devicescape’s release of a no-fee open-source license for its Linux-based security and device driver stack.
