Google Gives Android Developers a Donut

,----[ Quote ]
| According to multiple reports, Google is now offering developers a crack at 
| some Android 2.0 features at the Android code repository. Android 2.0, which 
| was codenamed "Donut," was discussed at the Google I/O developer conference 
| earlier this year. To listen to what Google had to say, watch the following 
| clip (the Android part starts a couple minutes in).    


Android Is Still Headed Beyond Just Smartphones

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this month, when Google announced its Chrome OS and made clear that 
| it is headed for netbooks, the news curbed many of the predictions people 
| were making about the Android operating system's prospects on netbooks. 
| Google officials made clear that they were steering Android toward 
| smartphones. That hasn't stalled all of the efforts to bring Android to 
| platforms other than smartphones, though. As PC World points out, device 
| maker Touch Revolution is working on several types of touch-screen devices 
| based on Android, including a line of cutting-edge remote controls for homes. 
| Meanwhile, Japan's OESF (Open Embedded Software Foundation) continues to push 
| forward with plans to deliver devices running Android as an embedded 
| operating system.          



The Android OS comes to the PC

,----[ Quote ]
| GOOGLE'S MOBILE PHONE operating system called Android has come to the PC in a
| LiveCD version.
| A couple of blokes have recompiled the OS so it's capable of running on a
| common x86 platform. This is just in time to see what Android is really like,
| before Acer, Asus, MSI and others officially release their netbooks with the
| operating system preloaded on them.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
