    I find it great to read this bits of news, but, is there any chance even so remotely, that samsung/texas instruments release any 3D bits for their SoC's?

    On a side note, isn't the samsung SoC using a mali based GPU? If so, does the new opensource mali driver work with this samsung bit?

    Android code being merged back upstreams to mainline Linux kernel.
    Samsung contributing open-source Exynos code.

    I think maybe my next mobile phone will be a Samsung...

    If Samsung had a phone that was as open/hackable as the Galaxy Nexus with a physical keyboard and screen (including use of the stylus for touching things that are too hard for fat fingers to touch) as good as a Nokia N900, that would be be the ideal candidate for my next phone when I eventually replace the N900.
    Even better if it had a GPU where the drivers (or at least everything but OpenGL) were open. (even better than that would be if the user-space library used to talk to the cellular baseband processor was open source but I know Samsung has valid reasons to keep that closed)
