About this Episode

This week the team talk about the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and a recent beneficiary of that platform - Amazon and their new Fire Phone (like their Kindle tablets before). This week's discussion is kicked off with a (pre-announcement) blog post about an Amazon smartphone from an influential analyst's blog.

The team discuss the background and usage of AOSP and consider how firm's like Amazon are using it to build alternative's to 'Google's Android', substituting replacement services for app stores, notifications, media and mapping to build or promote their own ecosystems.
