Submission + - Google offered to codevelop Android with Sun (techworld.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "Google hoped at one time to codevelop Android with Sun, and was prepared to offer Sun a share of its mobile service revenue in return for making Java open source, according to newly released documents in Oracle's lawsuit against Google. The documents also show that Google raced to get Android to market, because it feared Microsoft dominating the market for mobile phone software, and that Google considered selling a mobile phone service to users. The revelations come as Google and Oracle executives prepare for mediation in front of a magistrate judge, in a last-ditch attempt to settle their differences over Google's use of Java in the Android OS."
