Epic is diving into AOSP.

While it is sadly not on our bingo cards, the Android Open Source Project is indeed one of Google’s regular defenses in this case — Google, including CEO Sundar Pichai, have explained that anyone can go build an Android phone if they don’t like Google’s practices or apps because Google makes the core software available for free.

Now, Epic is quizzing Android chief Hiroshi Lockheimer about it. If you’ve been following my dispatches from the trial, you probably know what’s coming next. (Epic will try to show that AOSP isn’t enough to make a phone viable.)
