LiMo Foundation Expands Market Footprint

Introduces Newest Handset Models

LiMo Foundation has announced the newest round of LiMo-compliant handsets has been released to market. Developed by leading device manufacturers and LiMo members NEC and Panasonic Mobile Communications for LiMo board member NTT DOCOMO, these latest handset models offer an array of next-generation features and functionality.

Today’s announcement signals a continued expansion of LiMo’s footprint in the global mobile marketplace, as well as growing industry endorsement and coalescence around its collaborative device platform.

“In February 2009, a number of major network operators announced their intent to launch multiple devices built upon the LiMo Platform,” said Morgan Gillis, executive director of the LiMo Foundation. “This additional line of innovative handsets is indicative of the deep and abiding commitment our operators and device manufacturers hold towards fulfilling that promise by delivering next-generation LiMo technologies.”

Each of the new LiMo handsets offers a variety of advanced functionality and enhancements. Next-generation features including high megapixel cameras, rich media capabilities, and upgraded connectivity support resonate deeply with today’s demanding mobile audience, delivering a richer, more immersive mobile experience. NTT DOCOMO’s commercially shipping LiMo handsets announced today include:

  • docomo PRIME seriesTM N-06A, docomo PRIME seriesTM N-07A, docomo STYLE seriesTM N-08A, and docomo SMART seriesTM N-09A models from NEC; and
  • docomo STYLE seriesTM P-06A, docomo PRIME seriesTM P-07A, docomo STYLE seriesTM P-08A, docomo SMART seriesTM P-09A, and docomo STYLE seriesTM P-10A models from Panasonic Mobile Communications

“The successful launch of the latest LiMo handsets further establishes LiMo PlatformTM as a leading device platform within today’s rapidly evolving mobile ecosystem,” said Kiyohito Nagata of NTT DOCOMO, chairperson of LiMo Foundation.

With this latest release, the total number of LiMo-compliant handsets rises to 42, the largest number of commercially available mobile handsets produced by any global collaborative development platform organization.

LiMo Foundation was launched in January 2007 by mobile industry leaders to provide the mobile industry with an open, consistent Mobile Linux-based handset OS, enabling the development of immersive, next-generation mobile consumer experiences. LiMo’s membership includes mobile industry leaders from around the world, including OEMs, technology developers, and 12 global network operators representing nearly one billion mobile subscribers.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
