It’s Official – Koolu Supporting Android with Freerunner
A beta release of Koolu’s version of Android will be available starting the first week of December as one of options for operating systems on the Openmoko phone.Â We were the first site to report on these rumors last month, later providing images of the handsets.Â No longer conjecture, we’re excited to see Android on another hardware design.
“Openmoko welcomes Koolu’s efforts to optimize the community lead port of Google’s Android platform on the FreeRunner.Â That’s the benefit of having an open platform. Their market focus complements ours. The Open Source community wants choice and Koolu and Openmoko deliver it.” – Steven Mosher VP of marketing Openmoko.
