June 21, 2010 - Written By c.alexander

Cyanogen has dropped the next version of his Stable ROMs all at the same time.  The new version 5.0.8 has been released for the Dream/G1, MT3G and Nexus.

Cyanogen and his team have become very organized and controlled in their releases and anyone wanting to seriously start developing for the Android platform, or any other platform come to that should take a close look at how they operate.  How long before we see Cyanogen, Inc. ?
