The carriers and manufacturers who last year announced they would organize around mobile Linux officially announced their group today. Motorola, Samsung, NEC, Panasonic and carriers NTT DoCoMo and Vodafone are the first members of the LiMo Foundation. Last year this group announced they would work together to solidify a mobile focused Linux distribution and safeguard it from fragmentation. The group has since expanded its mission to include supporting a developer ecosystem for third party applications as well as bringing hardware suppliers on board to create Linux-friendly chips and reference platforms.

Blah, blah, blah...linux this...
For something once heralded as the next coming of computer greatness...it's sure fizzled without as much as a whimper.
This will hopefully get more manufacturers on the boat with providing linux support for hardware.
For phones, this is a step towards having some really cool new devices with lower costs, possible hackability, and uber-stable operation.
good to see some big names behind it too.
