South Korea to develop own Open source smartphone OS

Motorola mobility, Google, Android, South Korea operating system

Googlora, Motoogle, motogooglora, whatever you may want to call it, is eliciting so many reactions, apparently. One of the most recent ones is a decision by South Korean government to develop an open source mobile operating system. This is primed to leverage South Korean mobile developers to compete with Google’s Android and Apple’s IOS globally.

We have seen alot of speculation about the Google buyout of Motorola Mobility, and South Korean mobile phone companies like Samsung and LG have been uneasy about it. Hence you would say the decision to develop a homegrown opensource smartphone OS popped out as a result of recent developments. How this will impact on the companies already using the much globally accepted Google’s Android OS remains to be watched and seen.

Or what do you think?
