Man, remember LiMo
? Amazingly, there are some 40 handsets on the market today based on the platform, but precisely none of them are boasting a profile as high as any one of the Android smartphones
also on store shelves. As Motorola scrambles to re-make itself and prove that its CLIQ
is a force to be reckoned with in the burgeoning Android phone sector, the company has also decided to remove itself as a "founding member
" of the LiMo Foundation. The company recently noted that the outfit was sliding down to "associate member," stating that "at this time it feels that the Android platform gives it a richer, more consistent foundation with strong support for the ecosystem and developer community." That's a pretty damning statement to our ears, but we won't go so far as to call the breakup between Moto and LiMo official; we're guessing "it's complicated" would be entirely more appropriate here.
