Android Open Sourced

Google has finally open sourced Android. There was some disappointment when it was announced with opening it up. Hopefully this will lead to some crazy ideas from the followers, and even the rivals. What if Android works on other hardware, say iPhone! However, it remains to be seen how open will Google be to accept contributions from the community. It will also be interesting to see how Nokia approaches this with its own Symbian now open sourced. It remains to be seen if this will encourage or distract developing portable mobile applications.

    Ryan Paul over at Ars talked about the development model. It seems like it’s going to be pretty good (or at least has a lot of potential):
