According to Morgan Gillis, the Executive Director of LiMo foundation, three new carriers will be following Vodafone in releasing devices based on the LiMo platform by the end of the year.
So far, Vodafone is the only European operator to offer LiMo-based touch phones, the Samsung-made 360 M1 and 360 H1. As a matter of fact, there are around 60 other mobile phones based on the Linux Mobile platform, including a number of Motorola models (such as the RAZR2 V8, MOTOROKR E8, U9, etc.) but these two seem the only one with full touch interface. They've ben alos further customized with Vodafone's 360 UI.
Those two early birds are about to be followed by several other phones by the end of the year since three more operators "from the group of France Telecom, Telefonica, Verizon or SK Telecom" are expected to unveil devices powered by LiMo OS.
Morgan Gilles also shared his expectations on the current operating systems' future. According to him, only five of the operating systems out there will make it through the battle: LiMo along with Android, Windows, the revived Symbian and Apple's iPhone OS.
Strangely, but Samsung's refreshing Bada OS wasn't on that list and so weren't MeeGo, BlackBerry OS and HP's newest toy, the webOS. We'll let you be the judge on that.
look COrleone is seems you have a problem with talking to others on her, you seem the arguementative type. why not just think more before you speak and actually try to be friendly. rather than being an absolute bell*. And just for the re...
Why cant they just join Meego? Im all for a lot of alternative for the costumer, but this LIMO does not seem to catch on, and Meego seems to have far larger possibilities, cross-platform beeing one of the major... Imagine running tha same OS in you...
this is laughable, Im pretty sure the BADA OS is a million miles more advanced in terms of UI experience than the at of LIMO I have no idea how he feels its going to over take blackberry and BADA
