I am not sure how low-level you are talking, but driver wise, you can
expose the API given from specific manufactures over a socket (like
capi I believe)
I guess some could be opened sourced, but when it comes to TI and the
gsm radio, I dont see anyone that would allow for that. Again, it
depends on the level of access. If you mean firmware design, I bet its
all licensing issues.
Please, Correct me if I'm wrong.
That is just how I understand it ;)
