Samsung Hires Hacker to Work

Earlier today, Samsung announced their newest member to their “team”.  This being one of the most famous names in Android modification “hackers”, Steve Kondik (a.k.a. CyanogenMod 7).  For some people, this may be more important news than other people may think.

The main question is what will this bring to Samsung?

No one knows for sure but it is safe to say that it will be bringing some modifications in the future to TouchWiz resulting in a improvement in the Android landscape as a whole.

As for CyanogenMod 7,  he vows that he will continue to lead the team of CyanogenMod developers while working for Samsung on the side.  According to Kondik, there are no immediate plans for licensing CyanogenMod directly meaning that Samsung and CyanogenMod will remain separate companies.
