Cyanogen creeps up on big mobile players
Android outfit Cyanogen appears to be creeping up behind the main mobile players faster than many expected.
The company has announced that it has more than 50 million users at the moment – which is more than Windows Mobile and BlackBerry combined.
That is not bad for an outfit which started out as a simple ROM for Android devices which started out as a hobby by current CTO Steve Kondik in 2009.
The outfit was incorporated as a company in 2013 and now provides its Android-based software as pre-installed Cyanogen OS in devices like Yu Yureka and Yuphoria.
While Cyanogen OS was also originally pre-installed on the OnePlus One, the bitter falling-out between the two companies last year has resulted in OnePlus going with their own version of Android called Oxygen OS with the newly-announced OnePlus 2.
Cyanogen is basically Android without Google products and services. Recently it added a default email and calendar app.
The company has also teamed up with manufacturers to preload their software, such as OnePlus and India’s Micromax.
