Sony Mobile conducted an ambitious project to support open software on our phones, called the "Open Devices" project. Over the course of a few years, we made substantial progress supporting the Android open source project, and working with our upstream chip supplier Qualcomm in improving kernel mainline support for our products. This talk will describe what we were trying to achieve with that project, and where we got to. It will also provide a frank assessment of where things went right and wrong - things both inside and outside our control that didn't go as planned. It is hoped that this will provide some direction to others seeking to enhance their involvement in open source and reap the benefits thereof.
