Google and Apple: Giants of the Mobile Industry

,----[ Quote ]
| The Google Android on the other hand, is a 
| mobile platform made by Google based on the 
| concept of open source technology established 
| by Linux. There are many apps and features in 
| the Android that are not possible in the 
| iPhone (until recently) that makes use of a 
| majority of major device functions. Last 
| January, Google launched a self branded smart 
| phone named the Nexus One. While the device 
| itself was not a commercial success, it 
| galvanized Googleâs place as a major player in 
| the mobile phone industry



HP Experiments with Google Android Netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Hewlett-Packard is launching a Google
| Android-based netbook. Shipping under the
| Compaq brand, HP calls it the AirLife 100.
| It will debut in the United Arab Emirates
| (no word on a U.S. launch). The big
| question: Is Android for netbooks a good
| computing solution?


The New UI for ARM Based Ubuntu Devices

,----[ Quote ]
| ARM based platforms traditionally have a problem
| with graphics drivers and free software.
| Encumbered by licensing issues, many platforms
| only ship with 2D based drivers whilst the 3D
| driver-enabled offerings only frequent the
| poshest of circles such as Nokia's N900. There
| are exceptions, but its a painful reality at the
| moment.
| Vendors are trying to work around it, especially
| as there is the expectation of a ramp-up in the
| availability of ARM based hardware. Super long-
| life netbooks, low powered touch based computers,
| and even a flurry of smaller embedded devices are
| forecast to hit the market this year, many of
| which will be based on the Linux operating
| system. Ubuntu would be a great match for this.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
