| software.

| When it comes to all things Palmary Linux,

| Donât ask me why, but it looks like they 
| just got a nasty bunch of extra 
| competition.

My First Week With DROID

Android Gaining on Microsoft?

,----[ Quote ]
| In fact, Financial Times reporter Chris

O'Brien: Why I was wrong about Google's Android

,----[ Quote ]
| It's time for me to do a mea culpa on
| Android.
| Google unveiled plans for its mobile
| operating system about two years ago, and
| rolled out the first phone based on
| Android about a year later. In both cases,
| I predicted doom.
| But I was wrong.
| I finally came to terms with this the
| other day while watching one of those
| suddenly ubiquitous "iDon't" ads on TV. If
| you haven't seen one, the ads slam the
| shortcomings of the iPhone ("iDon't have
| interchangeable batteries") while
| trumpeting the pending arrival of the
| Droid sometime in November.
| In this case, Droid is a smart-phone built
| by Motorola for Verizon that uses Android.
| Add those three corporate behemoths
| together, and you have some serious
| marketing dollars available to push this
| thing, whatever it actually turns out to
| be.


Should Microsoft fear invasion of the Androids?

,----[ Quote ]
| The open-source Android operating system
| is gaining momentum, and Microsoft has
| been slow to respond, says a New York
| Times report.


Android 2.0: The iPhone killer at last?

,----[ Quote ]
| In its three years, the iPhone has
| redefined the mobile device. But despite
| the iPhone's popularity, it is by no means
| certain to become the mobile equivalent of
| Windows, the dominant platform that
| defines our experience of a particular
| technology, as well as the business
| choices that surround it.
| Google's Android 2.0 OS is the latest in a
| series of mobile offerings seeking to
| derail the iPhone's momentum. Backed by
| heavyweights Google, Motorola, Verizon
| Wireless, Acer, and other big-name
| manufacturers, Android could potentially
| knock the iPhone down a peg. After all,
| while users love the iPhone, Apple's
| controlling tendencies have frustrated
| developers, and its disrespect for
| business concerns have frustrated IT.
