Nvidia's Shield goes open-source

Hopes to see custom OS images.

exceededgoku has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
That's great news, phone companies would learn a thing or two from this approach.

Everyone likes Open source and transparency!

I wonder if someone would try and port the OUYA OS (since that already has stick support games built in) and bundle in the Nvidea support for PC game streaming, id see that as a good mix

Yea but it's not a phone. The open channel and contract one are entirely different.

But the Xperia Z is a phone. That's open source, as is the Tablet Z. The Nexus 4, too - although that, obviously, is special 'cos it's a Googlephone. There's also the HTC One and Galaxy S4 Google Editions. They're even more open than the non-Google editions - although they also have the source code available. Not to mention a number of others from a variety of manufacturers.

In short: it's increasingly common for smartphone makers to release enough source to build custom ROMs. Shame Asus has been slow in doing the same, really, although at least you unlocked the bootloader for the Padfone back in April - a year after launch.
