| Android has been developed using open-source technology, which is freely
| available for anyone who wishes to use it or improve it. Google's next step
| is likely to be the gPhone, which could be a fierce rival for Apple's wildly
| hyped iPhone.
| According to this version of the future, Google and other open-source
| advocates will eventually crush proprietary companies like Apple and
| Microsoft unless they, too, see the light.

| GnomeMeeting), Linphone or PhoneGaim, just to name some, have been a great
| source of knowledge for new entrant developers in this field and a great way
| for providers to offer a cheap way to make phone calls from your PC.

| partnered with Digium, the creators of Asterisk, to run a contest here on the
| VoIP Insider to find 101 things you can do with Asterisk.
