"Motorola decided to become an associate member this
year and remains an active and contributing member, it said in a
statement later. Motorola is no longer listed as a founder member
on the LiMo Web site.
"As an associate member, Motorola is now ineligible to run for a
board seat, a spokeswoman for the foundation said. In a consortium
like the foundation, changes on the board are natural, she said.
This year, SK Telecom and Telefonica were added to the board.
"Still, the loss of Motorola as a board member is a blow to the
foundation, said Allen Nogee, an analyst at In-Stat. He expressed
concerns about some LiMo members, including Motorola, making recent
announcements supporting Android."
