Among five new additions to the LiMo Foundation are Chinese manufacturer Huawei and Trolltech, the Linux developers who last year launched the open-source Green Phone, bringing the total to 23 companies. In addition South Korea's ETRI, a national R+D lab have joined the efforts. Although these new companies are relatively small, the LiMo Foundation was founded by major companies and carriers including NTT DoCoMo, which is also a part of Google's Open Handset Alliance Linux efforts. Despite DoCoMo's key membership in both, it is not clear whether LiMo's efforts will work in concert with or be positioned against the OHA.
