I just bought a android phone from att its a motorola backflip phone and I was just wondering. Does anybody know of motorola contributes back to the android project and what do you guys know about android contributing back to the linux kernel. I've read some stuff online but I can't find any forsure info on androids website.
Proper punctuation? And do you ever proof read? Just wondering...
As far as your question, motorola sells phones with the Android operating system on them, and that is all. Last time I have checked, they are part of the open handset alliance, but they do not contribute as much as they should.
Why should they contribute? They get a sexy OS for their phones, and with that enable Google to advertise at another user, and take a hit in terms of revenues compared to Apple who take everything and more with their model for iPhone & iOS. I don't see why they should be expected to "give back", it's not a community thing that far down the road.
