When you realize that developing a full firmware for a wireless router usually costs upwards of a million dollars it makes sense that they’re offering this kind of cash. This also assumes you’ve already got a code base and you’re just porting it. So they’re basically getting a code base which would cost them over a million dollars to build, and will be actively maintained. It’s an awesome business plan.
