Verizon, SK Telecom Bet on LiMo Mobile Linux


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.



@Frank – couldn’t agree more. They might not even want to be IN LiMo. Doing it to spite Google is reason enough.

@ Frank,

I wonder how great is the Android platform? It is hard to get excited about something that isn’t really available. Lets all keep our fingers crossed. :-)

This is suprising? After what Google did to Verizon in the auction? I’ll be shocked if we ever see an Android phone on the Verizon network. Kinda sucks too, since I really like the Verizon network better…
