Samsung Goes Open Source

Samsung Goes Open Source

From The Wall Street Journal:

Samsung Electronics Co. plans to open up its homegrown mobile software platform to outside developers and device makers next year in a bid to kick-start growth in the operating system and reduce its reliance on GoogleInc.’s Android in the increasingly litigious smartphone and tablet computer business.

Samsung ‘is planning to make Bada software an open source platform next year,’ a person familiar with the situation said, adding the South Korean company has no plans to buy a software company.”
