Kyocera, Wind River in Crucial Android Agreement

Android received a crucially important boost today from OHA allied companies Wind River and Kyocera. Kyocera hired Wind River to develop an Android Platform which will stabilize and standardize the development of Android-based handset platforms.

Given the fact that the OHA (Open Handset Alliance) is an open platform, the agreement between these two major players in the Android development processes will go a super long way in helping other players in the OHA to develop Android Handsets.

No date was given for the finished software platform – but Kyocera needs to edge its way in as a major handset player again and Android is its perfect opportunity.

We wish them well, and Godspeed. We can *all* use a standardized, global, and Open Platform for handset makers to get great phones into the market quickly.
