PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Only a few more hours until the last of the big three has its big event (Google i/o, after WWDC and Microsoft's Surface and WP8 events). They will most likely announce a Nexus tablet, as well as Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. While many of you are still on Gingerbread with your top-of-the-line phones - let me poke a few eyes out with mikegapinski's Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich port... To the Samsung Wave. Dual-booting Bada 2 and ICS, right here.

I expect that charging a battery is a hardware function that will work independent of software.
I expect that a mobile device can be used as a mobile device.
I expect that an OS-maker will first focus on getting hardware to work and later on getting software to work.

and I expect that when somebody says "Openness. It works." a better example is given than this to make people enthusiastic about openness.

Read up on it.

TBH, it depends.

I prefer stuff that is polished and finished then a preview of something that kinda half works.

It is a matter of opinion as to whether it works.

So in other words, it is unrelated to the openness.

I expect that an OS-maker will first focus on getting hardware to work and later on getting software to work.


Why would you expect a software company to focus on hardware?

I expect that when somebody says "Openness. It works." a better example is given than this to make people enthusiastic about openness.


Maybe you're putting too much importance into what some random guy on the internet say about stuff.

Apparently this OS plays some role in charging the battery on this device (seriously shocking to me). I am actually wondering where Tom got this information from because I couldn't find it on the page he linked to.

And I don't expect "a software company to focus on hardware?". I expect "an OS-maker will first focus on getting hardware to work".

I am a big fan of Thom and mostly agree with what he writes. But this time I didn't so I voiced my opinion. He didn't seem to like it and his responses were so-called clever one-liners instead of actual on-topic related answers.

On a side-note, I am now not sure anymore if Thom actually wrote that article or just posted someone else's article. As there is no other name mentioned I am assuming Thom wrote it:

Practically all ROMs will have the same beginning: some guy or group of people get bits and pieces running, and show them off to the public. Others join in on the fun, exchange knowledge and experience, fork, start over, improve on others work. In the end, you either get a fully working system, or the device gets too dated and developers lose interest.

You can expect all you want but battery charging management requires software.
