Re: Cyanogen OS

It is incredible that Cyanogen's commercial efforts flopped so badly

Wasn't it suggested here in ElReg a while ago that Google had been tightening the screws on manufacturers - something along the lines of "use 100% or 0% Google - your choice" ?

And isn't that more or less one of the things Microsoft got hammered for in the past ?

Getting a few models from some of the big names would have made it a success, I suspect that getting a few smaller niche manufacturers couldn't do it.
