PalmSource backs up the Linux Phone Standards (LiPS) Forum
PalmSource, Inc. has become a founding member of a consortium of leading companies, called the Linux Phone Standards (LiPS) Forum. The new association will attempt to standardize Linux-based services and APIs in order to avoid fragmentation and ensure interoperability of technologies from different vendors. The foundation of the LiPS Forum comes as a result of the growing numbers of companies providing Linux-based technologies for mobile, fixed and converged telephony terminals. The other founding members of the LiPS Forum are France Telecom/Orange, FSM Labs, Huawei, Jaluna, MontaVista Software, MIZI Research, Open Plug, Arm, Cellon and Esmertec.
