... if ”openness” makes sense for a beer,
it should also make sense for other things ...
Problem with that phone:
no broadcast applications except:
DMB and DAB audio
missing key broadcast applications:
Slideshow, broadcast website, TPEG, ...
No open API to access raw bit streams
Why is it like that ?
manufacturer did not have time to implement ?
manufacturer did not want to increase royalties burden ?
applications on phones selected by telcos ?
broadcast and telco applications are competing?
telco business models different than broadcast (FTA)?
unlike PCs, mobile phones live in a vertical ecosystem?
As a consequence:
we can't create new applications
we can't improve the functionality
we can't create extensions
we can't participate to innovation on top of...
some business models get excluded (FTA)

THERE IS HOPE:
some do start to understand
the power of open source models

CRC has produced tools for collaboration
(an architecture of participation?)
We invite MMB chipset makers to
think about open source business models
CRC releases CRC-DABRMS for free
Broadcasting should become a more
organic ecosystem (Internet model)
Broadcasting in a phone makes sense:
”CONVERSATION IS KING”
