| innovation philosophy which means it can co-
| create solutions with its partners and

Open Source Re-writes the Rules for Mobile

| This was simply not possible with older,
| proprietary mobile operating systems, because
| you couldn't hack them to work on different
| hardware. With Android, that all changes,
| opening up a whole new world of mobile re-use.
| As the same post rightly points out:
|     This story shows me once again how
|     important Android is to the mobile OS
|     space. The idea of taking older phones and
|     using a free, powerful OS to breath new
|     life into them is the promise of open
|     source software like Android.
| Indeed, and another instance of where free
| software really does give you new and useful
| freedoms.
