“One of the key objectives of WAC is to drive web technology across multiple platforms by providing a consistent widget runtime and specifying a broad range of device and network APIs,” said Peters Suh, CEO of WAC. “We are delighted to welcome LiMo Foundation and look forward to working together to bring universal availability of WAC apps a step closer.”
