CyanogenMod founders partner with Oppo on 'unprecedented new project', custom N1 on the way

Steve Kondik and Koushik Dutta of Cyanogen Mod fame have toured the Oppo N1 factory recently, and gave a press conference indicating they are about to start working on some "unprecedented new project" with Oppo.

Given what these guys are famous with, namely making stock Android versions for your handset even better, streamlining and optimizing the heck out of them, it's not hard to fathom what this project might be. In fact, Steve Kondik hinted that it will start off with a customized CyanogenMod OS for the Oppo N1 cameraphone as a limited edition arriving in December, and continue modding future Oppo handsets.

He already tried the corporate world once being hired to work for Samsung back in 2011, but couldn't survive there long, left and made the CyanogenMod a real company, securing more than $7 million in first round financing already. This is the second visit of the team of the Oppo factories (the first was after the N1 announcement), and the modder hinted that the relationship with Oppo is being very "smooth", obviously comparing it to the Samsung stint.
