In an ideal world, developers would be able to write one software application that can span multiple devices (i.e. smart phones, tablets, netbooks) and platforms. This would allow developers to save hours of development time while expanding their revenue streams by repurposing one program or application for multiple devices. By having a completely open source platform, it would be available to any OEM, device manufacturer and network operator who wished to use it. For developers, this would create an open source ecosystem for computing devices, yet maintain the freedom for manufacturer and developer innovation. Because an open source platform would work across different platforms, it would help decrease market fragmentation and complexity, accelerating the time-to-market for applications. Additionally, one platform would give consumers a universal software experience for multiple devices. During this session, Peddibhotla will discuss how open source platforms can run on multiple hardware devices including tablets, smart phones and any number of upcoming Internet-connected devices such as TVs and in-car dashboard systems. He will also examine how this open source ecosystem can foster innovation and how to identify new market opportunities for developers and OEMs.
