It looks like Android
and the boys and girls over at the LiMo Foundation
are lining up for a head-on collision -- a veritable mobile Linux explosion, if you will. The coalition is prepping to finalize its core software and programming interface by next month, but devs can get a head start now by grabbing a beta version of the SDK, ahead of the "significant" changes to Android's SDK promised in the next few weeks. Even better, LiMo's chief says that real, actual handsets running its wares will be available "very soon" -- and with companies like Azingo
already ready and willing to throw together fully functional stacks, the world might just be big enough for two players in the mobile Linux arena after all.
