Openwave Systems is making the code available through SourceForge. The code is the essential software needed to access a library of information Openwave uses to route data like e-mails, short messages or Web pages to and from cell phones, according to Ron Mandel, general manager of developer services at Openwave. With the announcement, Openwave joins a growing number of wireless equipment makers beginning to pry open their own designs to the outside world. Nokia opened up some of its source codes as well, and device makers like Research In Motion have been licensing out their designs. But there are still more proprietary systems than open source.
