Android is taking all the headlines, but there is also the LiMo Foundation pushing an mobile Linux platform.
Today the LiMo Foundation announced a partnership with the Gnome Foundation. LiMo Foundation will become a member of GNOME Foundation's Advisory Board and GNOME Foundation will become an Industry Liaison Partner for LiMo Foundation.

This development represents a natural formalization founded upon the significant use of GNOME Mobile software components within Release 2 and Release 3 of the LiMo Platform.

The LiMo Platform is a Linux based mobile device platform developed collaboratively by a group of mobile industry leaders using high quality open source technologies, including multiple components from GNOME Mobile project such as Glib, GTK+, D-Bus, GStreamer and BlueZ, amongst others.

The Vodafone 360 M1 (photo) is possibly the most well known LiMo Phone currently available.
