"According to the LiMo Foundation, six of its operating members plan to deliver handsets based on the LiMo Platform, a Linux platform, this year. Verizon Wireless, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, SK Telecom, Telefonica and Vodafone are all planning devices sometime this year, the LiMo Foundation said.

"The LiMo Foundation said many of the new devices coming this year will be low-cost Linux devices. Because of the open platform, operators have more control over the software development and customization of the devices. According to LiMo, its collaborative nature opens itself up to customization and enables operators to build on their individual strategies through flexible implementation, while also reducing portfolio complexity, lowering device costs and speeding the deployment of third-party applications and services."
