LiMo Platform at the Heart of Leading Global Operator Service Strategies

LiMo Foundation today announced that global operators on LiMo’s Board of Directors will be launching new handsets during 2009/10 based upon the existing R2 & planned 2010 R3 release of the LiMo PlatformTM. Operators that intend to bring these handsets to market include NTT DOCOMO, Orange, SK Telecom, Telefonica, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone.

The LiMo Platform reflects best-in-breed IP contributions of major stakeholders across the mobile industry, which in turn enables operators to leverage a common, pre-integrated software platform across many devices while providing deeply customized experiences to their customers. The LiMo Platform allows full freedom of choice in regards to application distribution paths and business terms so that mobile applications and services can be brought to market through a variety of channels, including current and emerging application stores and customer portals. Operators will be able to work with application providers and other participants in the LiMo ecosystem to deliver personalized services and a highly compelling mobile experience to their customers.

“In addition to serving as a market-proven codebase upon which OEMs can produce handsets of varying form factors, the LiMo Platform provides a fully independent and pervasive foundation from which operators can freely deploy and monetize their own visions for compelling next generation applications and services for their consumers around the globe,” said Morgan Gillis, executive director of LiMo Foundation. “As the value line continues to move further up the mobile software stack, LiMo is playing a critical role as the centre of gravity for industry collaboration within device software.”

Handsets for the upcoming operator deployments will be sourced from LiMo OEMs who have worked collaboratively with other LiMo members to develop and refine the LiMo Platform. OEMs within LiMo Foundation include Board members LG, NEC, Panasonic and Samsung, Core Member Casio Hitachi, and also Associate members Huawei and ZTE. To date, over 40LiMo compliant handset models have been delivered to millions of consumers around the world.

More details on device models and deployment dates will be released by LiMo and its members in Q4 2009.
