CyanogenMod will own line of smartphones Offer
CyanogenMod will bring its own line of smartphones on the market, reports the Chinese site Sohu IT. The line will fall under the umbrella of the Chinese manufacturer Oppo, but otherwise completely independent of Oppo, with teams of hardware, software and marketing.
The CyanogenMod smartphones have the latest hardware on board and only online for sale, says Sohu IT on the basis of statements made by a top executive of Oppo. The line smartphones will be focused on sales in China.
CyanogenMod began in 2009 as a custom ROM for Android and has grown into a company, Cyanogen Inc.. Under the leadership of the company recently entered the graphical installer for the custom ROM online. The Oppo N1 also comes in a version of CyanogenMod. It is a Chinese company that uses software from an American company.
The Chinese company is already big in the Chinese market and can therefore without much risk a trial release in that market.
If you want to do this in Europe or America you get a whole bunch of charges on your roof (import duties, royalties, transportation, distribution and of course the biggest cost item … Marketing).
So think of them as trial going to do this and only start thinking about the rest of the world on successOppo delivers his phones worldwide and even has a distribution center in London are to serve the European market. They also develop models especially for countries like India which shows that they are an international company.
There is Cyanogenmod no reason not to take advantage of this distribution to their phones and not to offer the world.
Strangely, it is also the least. U.S. companies do not produce such products really self domestically That all happens in China. Why not turn that business phones are already producing in China, the right contacts and knows what problems you will encounter. Precisely the outsourcing of production is something much work goes down and where exactly can help third parties.
In addition, the benefits to working with such a company to cooperate, you will benefit from all kinds of scale. The tricky for CyanogenMod is one such company choose from. Of course they would like to work with HTC and Samsung but companies will have absolutely no interest here. Then they look at small businesses, Oppo is one of the companies that produces the best quality phones. Oppo builds fine hardware, there is little to complain about. Why not link up with such a company and benefit from their experience and knowledge? Cyanogenmod has recently gone so well commercially and has the anger of the community on the neck removed. It is only by people and for people, but it’s just like any ‘healthy’ cashing business. In this case, on the backs of hundreds of developers who have selflessly sacrificed their free time to CyanogenMod. Quite painful decision in my opinion, both the ‘spirit’ that CM has made large as well as for development, commercial interests in very different rate than when it is community-driven. Indeed. What do Cyanogenmod now different from other phone companies? Phones with its own adjustment on stock Android. This really sounds the same as Sense, Touchwizz or other differences?
I think that one should forget that a Cyanogenmod Android community driven adjustment. Most volunteers have run away or will I still think going to leave. The number of phones that they will have support in the future will also decrease. Hence this step, I think.
Without broad support from the community they are too small to maintain all current models with their own phone you can create a regular user.
Cyanogen Inc.. is a commercial company and every decision will have to think about his own future freedom is gone. Users who want to provide a custom ROM that will be long supported their phone in the future will soon be dependent on other projects.
As I already poste yesterday, the developers at the Cyanogenmod SGS2 and Note are supported now switched to Omni. In CM have been around since August, an specific discs commits. This, while Android 4.4 with Omni I now turn to my trusty Note wonder what the Chinese market content, I understand that a lot too big phones are popular. I hope they continue Xiaomi where it’s a little late are (at least, there seems currently on the arrival of the two great phones Hongmi (2) and Mi3).
I am talking about are high end phones under 13cm, so a screen <4.5 “, but with quad-core Qualcomm.
Like CyanogenMod is also Xiaomi first started as Developer for Miui. I hope for them that they will result as many books about but they must be able to distinguish against the other major Chinese manufacturers in any case.
Much is still unclear about the new brand, for example, or the units can be bought outside China and outside China will work. Oppo is a Chinese manufacturer of smartphones, the Find 5 first came out in the Netherlands.
