| T-Mobile launched an Eric Clapton-backed 
| Fender Limited Edition of its Android-based 
| MyTouch 3G phone. Meanwhile, China-based 
| Hisense announced an HS-E90 Android phone, 
| Motorola is launching an Android app store 
| in China, and Taiwan's Gigabyte is rumored 
| to be releasing an Android handset in 
| Russia, say reports.


Processing for Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Pre-release downloads of Processing with 
| built-in support for Android. Note that this 
| code is incomplete and contains many bugs. 
| It is not ready for widespread use. It 
| should be considered "nightly build" 
| quality. Do not use this code while 
| operating heavy equipment. Do not rely on 
| this code for thesis or diploma work, as you 
| will not graduate. Do not use this code if 
| you're prone to whining about incomplete 
| software that you download for free.

| While we recently reported that Google's
| Nexus One had a slow start coming out of the
| gate, the Android operating system, which is
| spread across a number of devices, is not
| having the same issues. A report by Myxer, a
| mobile entertainment company with over 30
| million members, says that visits to its
| mobile site by Android users grew 350% in
| 2009, strongly outpacing the iPhone, which
| grew 170% during the same period.


iPhone And Android Now Account For 81 Percent Of Smartphone Web Ads In the U.S.

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to the mobile Web,
| increasingly there are only two mobile
| platforms that matter: Appleâs iPhone and
| Googleâs Android. According to market share
| data put out today by AdMob (which is being
| acquired by Google), the iPhone and Android
| combined captured 81 percent of U.S. mobile
| ad impressions on smartphones in the fourth
| quarter of 2009, up from a combined 55
| percent in the first quarter of 2009.  Most
| of that growth comes from Android, which
| nearly doubled its market share from the
| third quarter to 27 percent.  The iPhone OS
| made up the other 54 percent. (Worldwide,
| the iPhone had 51 percent share and Android
| had 16 percent, for a combined total of 67
| percent).
