You all have recently heard that the ultra-popular CyanogenMod project transformed into the company CyanogenMod Inc, with a bright vision for the future of the once barely popular ROM and the company itself. If you paid close attention to our recent article, you surely noticed the line that said CyanogenMod Inc had some partnership deals with Android OEMs in mind, and frankly, today Oppo and the founder of CyanogenMod – Steve Kondik himself, hinted on the CyanogenMod – Oppo partnership for the Oppo N1.
This is really exciting news, as we are sure many of you Android junkies would love to see a CyanogenMod – running device jumping right off the shelves. Possibly and hopefully, this comes to be true. Just for the sake of credibility, nothing of this has been officially said, it was just teased by Steve on camera, and Oppo behind its YouTube account:
And what all of this means to the casual Android users? Well, they could finally enjoy Nexus-like treatment on non-Google devices, with fast and timely Android updates and of course, all of the goodies baked into CyanogenMod. And if the community support is the key selling point for you, the Cyanogen-powered devices will fill your needs.
More regarding CyanogenMod’s partnership strategies, there’s a word fiddling around saying that HTC may also partner up with the team for some of its future devices. Take this one with a pinch of salt, as nothing official was said about it.
We are really excited for the announcement of the Oppo N1, which will take place in Beijing in just three days! Any thoughts on the story?
