At a time when the Android Smartphones are ruling the market, all new firm is set to pose tough competition against them. Cyanogen is all set to build a new platform for smartphones and has approached Microsoft as well as Yahoo for assistance on the work. Kirt McMaster, the CEO of the company has recently criticized Android and iOS for just being “shells” of Apple and Google services.
The company has not just stopped to complain about Google Play, YouTube or Gmail requiring OEM for usage but also declared, “We’re going to take Android away from Google.” While the news has raised eyebrows for many, most of the techies do not consider it to be a big threat for Android, as it is extremely tough for a start-up to outcast the giants.
It has also come to light that Cyanogen has failed to befriend Samsung, the largest maker of Android phones, with the claim that the Korean manufacturer could not have built a better operating system. Cyanogen, which had earlier tied-up with Shenzen One Plus and Micromax, has faced some legal issues in India, which has affected the company’s fate adversely. Therefore, seems to be a long way for the company before they stand a chance against Android.
Earlier, Amazon and Microsoft had made efforts of conquering the market with their smartphones but failed. Amazon even recorded a loss of $170 million after their first unsuccessful effort and may give another try by tying up with Cyanogen but it’s a wonder if they will be able to pull it off this time.
