The LiMo Foundation, a global consortium of mobile industry leaders announced the launch of the first LiMo Release 2 (R2) handset that supports the brand new Vodafone 360 service on a new Samsung device.
LiMo members also have reaffirmed their intent to bring LiMo R2 devices and associated services to market during 2009/2010.
The Vodafone 360 H1 by Samsung comes with an ultra brilliant 3.5-inch WVGA AMOLED display and a wide range of advanced features including 720P HD video recording as well as exclusive Vodafone services.
Equipped with high performance in a stylish design, the phone provides an advanced user interface and seamless connectivity.
The Vodafone 360 service includes a universal contact list that integrates information from address books within various services, and a 3D zoom feature that enables users to browse through their latest interaction in chronological order.
Not many more details have been revealed. In any case this LiMo phone will hit the market next year. LiMo was not in the news as much as Android, webOS, iPhone OS, Windows and even Mameo. I am not sure where LiMo will find its place amongst the mobile phone OSes. Update 10/29/09: Vodafone 360 and Samsung H1 launch this week in Europe.
