Moreover, there aren't OmniGSoft games or OmniGSoft engine among winners. It is strange, because such low performance games like from JOYity are in this list.

Enkin is very probably not listed, as the judges had no chance to test it!
MoseyCode unfortunately sits in the same boat. :(

There will be a second one, when there are actual devices available. As far as I know there is not yet a specific date.

As ADC.I it will also be Free For All. (I didn't have a look, but at least I see no reason why it should be limited to Round 1 winners.

Google losing cellphone battle?

Google losing cellphone battle?
http://blogs.zdnet.com/open-source/?p=2430

Verizon Wireless to introduce Linux phones
http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5hu37 ... wD90LFQA04

Verizon Wireless Snubs Google, Joins LiMo
http://www.crn.com/networking/207800107

Verizon's commitment to LiMo should not be too much of a surprise given that its partial owner, Vodafone (NYSE: VOD), is a founding member; however, it's the largest commitment by any North American carrier. AT&T (NYSE: T), Sprint (NYSE: S) Nextel and T-Mobile have all come out in favor of Android.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co ... 01563.html

So, should we give up Andoid and switch to LiMo SDK?

@drhu00:

Thanks for posting links.

I guess such headlines you will read a lot in the future. It is
natural that competitors arise - contracts and business contacts
change.

Of course - I have no crystall ball which tells me the future - but
I somehow have the feeling that the Android platform and Google's
strategy is build on a solid business plan.

Will see what the future brings ... atm I dont have any reason
not to stick to Android.

Just my 2cts :roll:

If I remember correctly, the LiMo foundation was founded before the OHA. So why switch now if you've already started on Android?
As you can see the LiMo foundation and OHA have some common members, which means that they do not know which horse to bet on.
