  • It was revealed this week that Cyanogen has received a solid investment over the past months and on the partner’s list there’s also Foxconn. Foxconn made the news a lot lately through its robots that help manufacture iPhones and iPads.

    Well, we don’t know what amounts were invested in Cyanogen, but we know that back in March the software maker got $80 million in Series C funding. Aside from Foxconn, the firms that brought money to the table were Qualcomm, Telefonica, Twitter and a few more. Cyanogen has managed to gather a total of $110 million in funding up until now, with the aim of developing a really open platform, based on Android.

    Recently Cyanogen has tried to adopt a different vision from Android, claiming that it doesn’t like the obligation of the Google apps. The Chinese market is dominated by Android Open Source Project versions of Android, so it’s logical for Foxconn to make this investment. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cyanogen even made its own phone at some point.
