New York Times is reporting today that the LiMo foundation now has 21 handsets based on Linux available to consumers worldwide. There were 7 recent addition, including the Motozine ZN5 from Motorola which is the only one available in US. The remaining 6 are launched in Japan and run on the 3G network. These phones have advanced GPS that can be used by pedestrians for directions as well as security features that make mobile banking safer. In addition, these phones also have user profiles which recognize the owner of the phone and shutdown if someone other than the owner tries to install software that is at odds with the owner’s profile.
