Android mod-maker Cyanogen has signed a new deal with Indian consumer electronics company Micromax following which Micromax phones will come with Cyanogen's software installed in them.
According to The Verge, the company says that the goal of the new venture is two-fold. Cyanogen's pitching a highly-optimized version of Android for people buying mid-range phones.
Meanwhile, Micromax will benefit from updates provided by the company on latest software and services.
Cyanogen claims it does a better job than carriers and major device makers, and doesn't add bloatware apps , the report says.
Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster said that the company mastered the art of making an inexpensive device seem like a much more premium-level device.
