Contrary to some reports, everything that makes Android “Android”, including all the core platform components and libraries needed to port Android to new devices will be open sourced under commonly used, industry standard licenses, says Google.
Here are a few more signs for the haters and the non-believers that Google Android will become a complete Open Source Project once the first set of phones have taken to the market later this year. According to Cnet News, Google will be using Git to manage all of the glorious 8.6 million Android code that will be open sourced.
At LugRadio Live yesterday in San Francisco, Google developer and Linux kernel contributor Robert Love gave a presentation about the open source Android mobile phone operating system and software development kit. He provided a technical overview of the platform’s architecture and discussed some of the opportunities that Android could create for innovation in the mobile space.
