The GNOME Mobile & Embedded Initiative (GMAE), also known as GNOME Mobile, is an initiative for developing and promoting the use of the GNOME platform in mobile devices. It was announced at the Embedded Linux Conference in Santa Clara, California on April 19, 2007.
GNOME Mobile strips deprecated components on the desktop only for backward compatibility and adds mobile-specific components like matchbox (window manager), a window manager optimized for mobile integrated devices. GNOME mobile uses and optimizes the mainline codebase as used in the Desktop, merely scaling the design down for the smaller form factor.
