Really appreciate you replying to a lot of comments Chris.P

Anyway, yeah. @mturby CM is Android. It's a ROM in case you didn't know.

Chris is a good author and a good reviewer, even though he talks too fast in his reviews, but I love it! I love the Bulgarian accent as well.

Ray, Victor, Daniel, Nick and Chris are from Bulgaria. Most PhoneArena reviewers are from Bulgaria, I know Chris is from Bulgaria is because he has the Bulgarian accent.

I love Bulgarian accents. Since you're Bulgarian, you should visit them at the PhoneArena office. lol If I'm not wrong, their office is at Varna.

the ROM you mentioned is a customization of the Android, hence still an Android. And it is not so far away from the stock version, just some/a lot of user access to the Android internals.

Other point is: if you can run Android apps on CM, then CM is Android. If you can run iOS apps on (say) ZZ mobile operating system, then most probably that one is based on iOS (LOL)

You may want to check also Ubuntu in respect with Android ;) you'll notice some interesting facts there too ;)

Peace!

You're still a moron for your moronic reasoning. It's 100% android + extra.

I think Oppo would be a good partner. They make good hardware and It'll make it more unique as oppose to another version of the usual HTC/Samsung/LG/Motorola etc... Not to mention have you seen the latest Oppo displays?? Pretty awesome!

Thought Oppo was already known to be the company to partner with CM, it runs their ROM right out of the box.

CM should work it out so that they accomplish what Nexus devices have failed to do - early updates to the latest version of Android that bypasses carrier/manufacturer delays. If CM can deliver that in their CM-experience phones, they would be the only Android device I ever buy.

Hardware quality wise that wouldn't be a bad pick...but...that name..."blackberry"... Could be tough to bring it back.
