Cyanogen raises $7 million to build better Android

Cyanogen raises $7 million to build better Android:

operating system more focused on productivity than commerce. “The mobile devices out there, they’re just not meant for anybody to use,” Kondik says. “They’re essentially mobile cash registers. We want to help you get stuff done, and use these things to their fullest potential.” Cyanogen will also place a significant emphasis on security and privacy, Kondik says, taking pains to help users protect their data.

Will be interesting to see how far this gets.
