    The whole point of open source is sharing development cost in exchange of shared IP... Why on earth would you open your code, but not work with others?

          "Since starting the company about a year ago, Mr. Hurmola said Jolla has been working hard to make its Sailfish operating system capable of working on different types of devices, including smartphones, touch-screen tablets and televisions. Another benefit with the MeeGo-based software is that it won't require the same high-end and costly hardware needed to run the latest versions of Android or Windows Phone."

          Jolla Sailfish is benefiting from an infusion of 200 million Euros. I expect it will soon be a viable option to Google & Apple devices, and that it's just a question of time before it surpasses them. Establishing the Hong Kong Headquarters is a brilliant move.

            I was under the impression that this is how Android is developed. Google develops each new release in-house and then does a big source drop before release (thats why it takes the CM guys & company some time to update their releases). Not user if they accept patches & keep up with upstreem projects. There seems to be an initiative to reduce the patch-delta from the vanilla kernel though.

            All the code is open and aside from the kernel under BSD, so the Chinese OEMs can crank all the Android tablets & phones they want, without paying Google & releasing their changes (as they seem to mostly ignore the GPL requirements for kernell changes anyway).

            If you want to get the whole experience - Google apps & Google play, you have join the Open Handset Alliance and play by Googles rules.

            The end result is the same though - more Android compatible devices, with Google as the default search engine, support for showing ads in applications and using Googles services. And all this with closed development cycle & open code.

              Android uses mostly the Apache license altough there are quite some BSD projects too. That doesn't change what you are saying though.

                Certainly, but it's also used to (legally) avoid taxes in Finland by moving most income via the Hong Kong office to the Cayman Islands. (My memory could be wrong on the cayman islands part, but to a tax haven anyhow.)

                  Hope other manufacturers -the ones that use a more "traditional" linux stack- will push somethig like that also.
