February 12th, 2008 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: Linux | No Comments »

LimoLiMo is soing full steam ahead as they do their best to beat Google in the mobile Linux game. At the MWC which is going on right now, there was a load of LiMo news we covered below.


First off, the SDK. LiMo says it’s nearly ready and should come out any day now. Of course we hope that the LiMo SDK will be in a better state then the first Google SDK softlaunches.


Limo has gained fresh support from operators Orange and Softbank. These will fit well next to NTT DoCoMo which was already signed up for supporting the platform.


LiMo will launch on several Motorola devices. The devices where already developed for MotoMagix, the Linux distro from Motorola itself. The suppoted models are U9, Z6w, Z6, E8, RAZR 2 V8, and RAZR 2 V8 Luxury Edition.


Fresh on the team is Samsung. They launch a device specially for Orange, the i800.

NEC and Panasonic

NEC and Panasonic are still supporting mobile Linux as well. The LiMo models will be the N905i, N905iu, N705, N705iu, P905i, P905iTV, P705, and P705iu will arrive for operator NTT DoCoMo.
