While the Motorola Cliq's release is a little more than a month away, Motorola is clearly staking its future with Google's Android operating system. The company already decided to drop Windows Mobile for Android and now it is doing the same with LiMo, a Linux-based operating system.
Motorola has changed its association with the LiMo Foundation, which it helped found. The company switched from being a founding member to an associate member. In addition, Christy Wyatt, VP of software applications and ecosystems at Motorola, has vacated her seat on the LiMo Foundation board of directors, reports PC World.
Motorola is hitching its cart to Android and says the majority of the phones it releases next year will be powered by Google's OS.
