Cyanogen has certainly come a long way since their days as a custom Android ROM for the HTC Dream and now they have taken more steps towards really establishing themselves has a major player when it comes to mobile.
They have revealed a new logo with a simple font and bright blue colour, “it is fresh, expansive, and free”, and that reflects their open attitude. They have also updated the website to match the feeling, fully responsive and focused on bright colours and readability.
Cyanogen has also formed a partnership with Qualcomm which will add support for Cyanogen OS features and UI enhancements for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200, 400 and 600. The features will be available with the release of the Qualcomm Reference Design (QRD) in April, helping to streamline the process of creating devices with lower development costs.
Their goal is to make their custom version of Android a major platform and their partnership could really help with that by streamlining entry-level devices and making them more friendly to the new OS, not to say they earned a lot of legitimacy as well.
