HTC TouchFlo uses open source code!?!?



Well well well...

If it ain't a scoop - I don't know what a scoop is!

(which is true, I have no idea how a real scoop looks like...)

According to Johan Sanneblad - "If you go to “Settings” and scroll down to “About” you will see a list of copyright notices from the various technologies used. This list however does not explain what the product does, and in some cases it does not even describe the full product name (e.g. the Vincent OpenGL ES renderer is listed as “OpenGL by Hans-Martin Will”.

Nice!

It seems like I'm not the only one stealing code form the internet!

(Oooops... )


Johan even extended the research and list the names of the open source components:


(You won't find that in Samsung Omnia!)

Cellphone manufacturers outside the US have been using Linux on some of their phones for about 5 years.

This proves that you don't need to hack things up to find great code!
