Android or LiMo? What is the difference between Android and LiMo?

The LiMo Foundation is trying to create an open, Linux-based software platform for use by the whole global industry to produce mobile devices enabling a rich ecosystem of differentiated products, applications, and services from device manufacturers, operators, integrators etc.

So is Google with its Open Source Linux Platform – Android. Both are Open Source Linux based platforms targeted for Mobile Devices. Then what’s the difference?

image

Well, Here is a quick summary of differences as TechCrunch puts across.

Well, Who will win in this Battle?

We personally bet Android will take it. Google is the innovations boss. At the same time, LiMo is also backed by a huge list of biggies like Motorola, Samsung, NEC, Panasonic, Vodafone and many more. Ironically, companies like Motorola, DoCoMo, Samsung etc support both the platforms and fund/promote both of them. They are smart, who cares, they will use both, finally pick the one which wins :) Anyways, worth waiting for the winner. What do you think?

The way you communicate won’t be the same once you start using these apps. These apps further advances the way you communicate with your Android Mobile.

Here are the five free apps that you do not want to miss.

1. Fusion Voicemail Plus

Fusion Voicemail Plus by PhoneFusion is a FREE service that lists ALL of your voicemail messages on your SmartPhone screen. Not only does it list your messages from your mobile phone, but from your home, office and any other voicemail box as well. A tap of a screen or a push of a button is all that’s needed to scroll, listen to, call back, and delete voicemails in the order of your choice. Save time listening to the voicemails that you want, in the order you prefer. Fusion Voicemail Plus is available Android ( also available for handsets running Windows Mobile 5 and 6 and BlackBerry)

You can sign up online and download the Fusion Voicemail Plus application to your mobile phone and then redirect or forward all your unanswered calls to our Fusion Voicemail Plus Servers. All calls sent to voicemail are now directed to your Fusion Voicemail Plus mailbox. Each time a caller leaves a voicemail, an SMS message is forwarded to your mobile phone triggering the Fusion Voicemail plus program to download the voicemail from the servers to your SmartPhone, and the voicemail information is displayed on your handset screen.

The application can be downloaded for free from the Fusion Voicemail Plus site.

2. ChompSMS

chompSMS is a great application for people who are busy SMSing and more frequently send SMS to international numbers. chompSMS has lots of features like an on-screen keyboard, signatures, chat bubbles, color customizations, and more. You can use chompSMS as a replacement to the built-in Messaging application, and send SMS messages via your mobile carrier as you normally do. Or, if your mobile carrier charges a lot, you can buy credits to send SMS messages via the chompSMS network, which can be much cheaper.

The chompSMS application is free. If you currently pay too much for SMS messages then simply buy credits, and each time you compose an SMS, choose to send it via the chompSMS network instead of your mobile carrier.
