Following the news that the LiMo Foundation is going to try push mobile Linux into the enterprise zone, more hints have arrived that the technology is not going to stay purely consumer.

On the LiMo/Verizon conference call today, Verizon's vice president of network, Kyle Malady, said the operator expected to carry everything "from entry level handsets to more sophisticated smartphones and PDAs".

Although Verizon will continue supporting its technology-agnostic approach, "we expect that Linux mobile will rapidly become our preferred operating system [and] developers should check out LiMo and Linux mobile first".

Exciting times!
