Formerly called
The Linux Mobile (LiMo) Foundation

The Tizen Association (Formerly The LiMo (Linux Mobile) Foundation) is a non-profit technology consortium organization dedicated to creating Tizen as the first truly open, hardware-independent, Linux-based mobile operating system for smartphone mobile devices. The mission of the LiMo Foundation is to create an open, Linux-based software platform for use by industry to produce mobile devices through a balanced and transparent contribution process, enabling an ecosystem of differentiated products, applications and services. The governance is "open and transparent": leadership and decision making are shared. The founding members were Motorola, NEC, NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic Mobile Communications, Samsung Electronics, and Vodafone. The work result was the LiMo Platform. The work was integrated into mobile phone products from NEC, Panasonic and Samsung and later combined in the Tizen platform.

In the end of September 2011 it was announced by the Linux Foundation that MeeGo will be totally replaced by the Tizen mobile operating system project during 2012. Tizen will be a new free and open source Linux-based operating-system which itself will not be released until the first quarter of 2012. Intel and Samsung, in collaboration with the LiMo Foundation and assisting MeeGo developers, have been pointed out to lead the development of this new software platform, using third-party developer frameworks that will primarily be built on the HTML5 and other web standards.[1][2][3][4][5][6] As of October 2012, the LiMo website traffic is redirected to tizen.org.
