Google's Underdog Eyes iPhone's Lead in Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| While Apple's iPhone App Store has clearly emerged as the Big Man on Campus 
| when it comes to mobile downloads, the Android Market -- the download center 
| for the Google-backed smartphone operating system -- is shaping up like an 
| awkward, underweight freshman.   



Google Launches Android Market

,----[ Quote ]
| Several points separate Android--and Apple's App Store--from the previous
| attempts at mobile applications. By having a central repository for
| applications, consumers can more easily locate apps they seek. And with 3G
| mobile broadband and operating systems that actively support over-the-air
| installations, consumers can add apps anytime, from anywhere. In contrast,
| Palm, for example, rarely allowed apps to be installed directly; instead,
| users had to sync their device with a desktop.


Coders get 70 percent of Android Market revenue

,----[ Quote ]
| Google officially opened its Android Market Wednesday and promised that
| beginning next year, programmers will get the lion's share of revenue from
| applications sold on the download site for the company's mobile phone
| operating system.



First look: latest Google Android SDK a big improvement

,----[ Quote ]
| I tested several of the applications that come with the SDK, including the
| mapping program, the contact book, and the web browser. I also tested the
| experimental Google Talk chat integration feature. I was able to connect to
| Google Talk and receive messages, which are displayed as items on the
| notification panel. The performance and usability of the bundled applications
| is pretty decent.

A developer's perspective on Google's Android SDK

,----[ Quote ]
| This in-depth, hands-on article introduces Android, Google's Linux/Java
| mobile phone SDK (software development kit). After a tour of Android's tools,
| documentation, and code samples, it suggests a path for further exploration
| and concludes with a simple applet showing the power and simplicity of the
| Android environment.    


Android SDK in the fly

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source community called Vafeo, once more surprises bringing now not
| only a full Operational System but one Linux Distro (Vd_android), with
| Android SDK built in. In many cases people get bother to mess with the OS
| hardDrive in this case, don’t. Because you’re completely able to run it from
| your CD, not requiring installation. If you prefer install, you’re free to
| choose, just choose where, in second partition, replacing your OS, or also
| install in your pen drive.      


Google Android gets positive early reviews

Android opens door to IC open source

,----[ Quote ]
| The backers of Android point to the benefits of an open-source model: more
| innovation as more companies develop solutions, faster time-to-market, lower
| price points and even better utilization of the sheer power of the
| applications processors. Indeed, Texas Instruments and Qualcomm hope their
| participation in Android will spur design wins and make it easier to
| incorporate their chips into the wave of Android handset introductions the
| market is likely to see later this year.
