Verizon, Mozilla take seat in LiMo

Open mobile Linux initiative, the LiMo Foundation, opened its doors to a handful of new players on Wednesday, including another heavyweight carrier, Verizon.

New additions to the forum also include browser platform Mozilla, as well as Infineon, Kvaleberg, Red Bend Software, Sagem Mobiles, SFR, and SK Telecom, expanding LiMo’s membership to 40 since the foundation’s launch in January 2007.

A not for profit organisation, the LiMo Foundation aims to blend the community-based development benefits of Linux with development practices from the mobile community in a bid to minimise fragmentation – an ambition shared by Android backers the Open Handset Alliance and as well as the LiPS Forum among other Linux collectives.

The collective was launched in January 2007 by six mobile players – Motorola, NEC, NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic Mobile, Samsung and Vodafone.
