Objective

This presentation would be to give a first hand account of what it takes to bring a consumer mobile device to the India market - based on the CyanogenMod Project. This is for those with general interest in CyanogenMod, hobbiest who want to make changes to AOSP, or people looking forward to releasing their own Android-based hardware products.

Description

Launching a new device in any market has its own series of challenges and milestones and launching a device in India has its own intricacies. Add in an OS based on an Open Source community platform, and the process takes on a new light of its own. This talk will discuss the journey of a device based on CyanogenMod, from conception to launch for the Indian market.

    Can you please expand on the description a little bit ? If you have existing slides, please post them.

    I assume this is so, but can’t help asking – Does this talk cover how launching a CyanogenMod based device is different compared to launching an Android device ?

    “This talk will discuss the journey of a device based on CyanogenMod, from conception to launch for the Indian market.” - what’s the base device in this case ? An existing commercial device, or something that is designed to run CM ?
