Default Android Wear in AOSP/OpenSource?

Hello,
I just wanted to know if the Android Wear Project is also getting open source, cause we have so many Smartwatches that are allready based on Android (Gear, Moto Actv,...) so porting Android Wear over to them is not the hardest thing.

If you find something, please let me know!

Regards
working for a mobile phone company, stopped counting my mobile phones.

Yes, IMO a VERY important question that hasn't been answered yet.

I would be concerned that Google felt it was TOO open with Android proper and tried to restrict Wear even more.

If the current preview emulator is a good indication, then Wear is just another variant of Android. Many normal apps can run on it right now, though with issues. I tested my own app and it more or less worked, with a squished UI.


So I think a LOT of the Wear code is effectively already IN AOSP already.

But will Google release enough Wear specific code for custom ROMs to be built ? I very much hope so.

Prayer is the only remote hope you have, I think.

There are reasons Gears are going cheap now.

You really think Samsung won't take every opportunity to sell you new wearables, EVERY year at least ?


EVERY few months, new, "in fashion" designs.

Every year, moar cores, LOL.

We'll be overclocking on both wrists to keep our hands warm in winter...
