Google continues to rev up its plans for Android, spending liberally on developers, but the other mobile Linux platform effort, LiMo, isn’t keeping quiet and is aggressively adding bulk to what is an unenviable line-up. Today, the foundation got eight new members, most notably carriers Verizon Wireless and SK Telecom, chip maker Infineon and Mozilla. No one should take LiMo lightly, despite the fact that it’s a crazy consortium of many vested parties. We have been following them closely for a while now. Here are some links from the recent past. #1, #2, and #3.
