LiMo Platform

The LiMo Platform is a Linux-based software platform for mobile phones and other handheld devices. LiMo has been renamed Tizen in September 2011.

LiMo is developed by the LiMo Foundation (founded by a group of cellular handset makers and network operators) for handheld devices, and it uses Linux as its operating system.[1] It has a modular plug-in architecture, and supports DRM. LiMo application developers will be able to use SDKs to write managed code running in a Java virtual machine, browser apps for WebKit, and native code.[2]

This platform is not yet released, but it only uses open source components and is built on top of them.[3]
