Mobile Game-Changers: What to Keep Your Eye on in 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Android: The New Smartphone Superstar
| Will Apple own mobile applications? 
| Perhaps, but with the launch of the Android 
| OS and some slick devices: Droid, HTC 
| Dream, HTC Eris and the much anticipated 
| Nexus One expect more developers to take 
| advantage of the openness of this new 
| platform. Having the ability to push apps 
| live without an approval process, make 
| quick updates and leverage open source, 
| along with some very cool mobile features 
| like the accelerometer and a larger 
| developer community, will certainly put 
| Android in the race for the most popular 
| mobile OS.


Review: Motorola Milestone

,----[ Quote ]
| If you've somehow managed to get through 
| the festive period without picking up a new 
| phone and you have some change in your 
| pocket to use to that end, there are many 
| things to love about the Motorola 
| Milestone, one of the strongest new 
| contenders to the iPhone's well-deserved 
| crown.
| Engineered to incorporate the Google-backed 
| Android operating system, there's some 
| impressive hardware behind efforts to fully 
| realize Google's vision for mobile 
| computing and telephony, delivered through 
| a clean and responsive 3.7-inch touchscreen 
| and powered by a 550 Mhz processor which 
| helps clear up the speed issues which 
| troubled earlier Android handsets. 
| [...]
| For the advantages over an iPhone, the list 
| is a long one - a superior camera, for a 
| start, as well as the ability to run apps 
| in the background - so that you can, for 
| example, write an email while listening to 
| music (the phone incorporates a standard 
| headphone jack, and filling it with your 
| favourite mp3s is a breeze). But it lacks 
| the polish that an Apple product delivers, 
| and, at Â450 for the hardware alone, is 
| certainly on the pricey side - on top of 
| that you're going to need an unlimited data 
| plan to even scratch the surface of the 
| phone's potential, as well as minutes and 
| texts.

The Androidification of Everything

| The bigger indicator of momentum for Android

| special Android-focused businesses.
| Freescale Semiconductor is working on an

Android Phones to Challenge iPhone Supremacy

,----[ Quote ]
| Now bitter industry rival SK Telecom is
| looking to generate just as much buzz by
| getting out of the gate early on premium
| phones powered by the Google-backed Android
| operating system.
| SK Telecom, the country's biggest mobile
| telephony operator, currently plans to release
| its first Android phone, produced by Motorola,
| sometime around mid-January, industry sources
| said.
