Linux Mobile Foundation (LiMo Foundation)

Definition - What does Linux Mobile Foundation (LiMo Foundation) mean?

Linux Mobile Foundation (LiMo Foundation) is a consortium dedicated to creating the first open, hardware-dependent, Linux-based OS for mobile devices. LiMo is also the name given to the Linux-based platform and OS being developed by this foundation.

Techopedia explains Linux Mobile Foundation (LiMo Foundation)

The LiMo Foundation was founded in January 2007 by Motorola, NEC Corp., NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic Mobile Communications, Samsung Electronics and Vodafone.

The LiMo Foundation's main objective is to develop a Linux-based mobile operating system. Some of the phones that run LiMo include the Samsung Vodafone 360 H1, Samsung SCH-M510, Panasonic NTT DoCoMo Prime Series P-036, and the NEC NTT DoCoMo Prime Series N-03C.

Developers who are interested in learning more about LiMo-based development can go to the LiMo Developer Connection website, which includes technical information about the platform, its road map, news feeds and more.

In October 2009, Motorola, which used to be a member of the LiMo Foundation Board, downgraded its membership to “associate” to focus more on the Android platform. Like the LiMo platform, Android’s OS is based on Linux.
