It’s a shame… I’m an avid fan of open source technology (as I type this from a Linux-powered machine running Firefox), but have not been overly pleased with open source on mobile phones.

I believe LiMO tried to be the collective group of open source backers interested in working together to help support open source phones. As long as RIM, Apple, and Nokia are in control of the mobile industry, it’s unlikely independent open source apps will be able to become relevant any time.
