Summary:
The first catch: there's no date yet for version four. We're still waiting version two, due by the end of the year. The other catch: "open source" does not necessarily equate to "patent free". Little wonder then that LiMo executive director Morgan Gillis also used LinuxWorld to flag up the foundation's promise not to assert patent claims against fellow LiMo members. LiMo pools some 300,000 patents, versus an estimated 50,000 owned by Nokia and 30,000 by Microsoft on mobile technology.
