Android Phone Prices Declining Quicker Than Expected

,----[ Quote ]
| it's expected to sell for about Â100 (US$155) unlocked. 
| That's over 54% less than the price tag that came on the 
| original Pulse only a few months ago.  Granted the screen 
| size does factor in for most heavy users, the general public 
| will likely fall in love with the price.

Best Android apps



Three short stories, all about Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Clearly, free applications exist for Android.
| But finding them takes work, which is silly;
| this is a perfect job for a computer. An ideal
| solution would be for Google to add a "freely-
| licensed" option to its (proprietary) market
| application. Failing that, it should be
| possible (for somebody with a bit more Android
| application-level programming experience than
| your editor) to put together an alternative
| market application which would focus on the
| growing body of free software for the Android
| system. It is an area worthy of encouragement;
| free software doesn't become less important
| just because it's running on a machine that
| fits into a shirt pocket.
