Myriad and Iced Robot are going to loosen Google's grip on Android no matter how successful Amazon's Android market is. One approach is "cathedral" and one "bazaar": pick your poison. The Iced Robot project (best name and logo ever!) is especially significant since GOOG could try and stop Myriad with legal threats, but they dare not sue Debian.
Were there never another Android code-drop, CyanogenMod could be the basis for a successful line of mobile devices. What's to stop Huawei or China Mobile from coming out with a CyanogenMod-based tablet? The Linaro is another well-funded, serious mobile Linux project.
