Being a competitor for Google Android is far from easy, and Firefox OS is the non-living proof that having a big name behind means nothing without other ingredients. On the other hand, Cyanogen has been around long enough to have something to say in this field, and now they are teaming up with ZTE to help AT&T make a mobile operating system better than Google Android.

AT&T already tried its luck with the Amazon Fire Phone, but that worked as bad as ZTE's Firefox OS-powered handsets. However, they are now both teaming up and, with Cyanogen's help, will try to change the mobile operating systems landscape. According to 9to5Google, "This is notably the first time that a US carrier has considered selling a phone running the less-Google-controlled version of Android that powers phones like the Yu Yutopia and the WileyFox Swift…"

Cyanogen has already teamed up with Microsoft, bringing Skype, Microsoft Office, and Cortana to CyanogenMod. Now, AT&T will try to push its subscription video service to the upcoming platform that would run on ZTE-made hardware. Unfortunately, these are only rumors for now, but we will get back to it once we hear more, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
