| considering HTC built Nexus One for Google.


Android Market should stimulate Open Source Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| For Google this is also good because with 
| open source multiple people can start 
| contributing to apps such that they can 
| improve faster. Furthermore people can 
| start new projects by simply reusing open 
| source code of other Open Source Android 
| applications. All in all it will spur 
| innovation and improve quality of 
| applications and in the end thatâs good for 
| Google because the platform will become 
| more popular.

| that they stimulate Open Source.


Mobile World Congress: Content plans reveal likely mobile winners and losers

| 2. Google's Android platform gained 
| critical mass 18 months from launch, 
| heralding the rise of the open source OS. 
| Juniper said. Android had been as much 
| about as enabling search and services 
| across different devices as capturing OS 
| market share. This had prompted Nokia to 
| open-source its Symbian environment and was 
| being followed by Nokia and Intel, which 
| combined efforts to launch the Linux-based 
| MeeGo platform .

| is competing against mobile carriers.


Porting Android 2.x to Sony Xperia â Psh. Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 â Now weâre talkinâ

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the greatest things about a more 
| open platform for smartphones I believe, is 
| the ability to (if you choose) customize it 
| until youâre hearts content. From personal 
| experience, I swap ROMâs every couple of 
| days on my DROID trying out the updates and 
| newcomers to the custom DROID ROM scene 
| alike. But porting various ROMâs developed 
| for your phone, or at the very least, the 
| phoneâs operating system, are rather easy 
| all things considered. Especially so when 
| comparing a simple ROM port from one 
| Android device to the next against porting 
| a full blown desktop OS to a Sony Xperia 
| X1. Oh yeah, itâs real.

| run on a new version the increasingly popular
| Android OS that has never been seen in the wild
| before.
