One Android To Rule Them All?

,----[ Quote ]
| Android is looking good, no doubt about it. 
| What has started as a Linux-based OS for 
| handsets (i.e., mobile phones) has now 
| rapidly spread to different devices. There 
| are small tablet computers like Archos' 
| Internet tablets and Enso's zenPad, e-book 
| readers like Barnes & Noble's nook and 
| Spring Designs Alex, and even a netbook - 
| Acer's Aspire One D250 (actually dual boots 
| with Windows 7).


Survey: Developer Interest in Android Up, iPad Wanes

,----[ Quote ]
| Appcelerator, maker of the open-source 
| Titanium cross-platform mobile, desktop and 
| Web development platform, has released a 
| new survey of its developer base that 
| indicates that, while still hot, developer 
| interest in Apple's iPad is slightly on the 
| wane from earlier this year, while interest 
| in the Google Android platform continues to 
| grow.


MIPS targets Android handsets

,----[ Quote ]
| MIPS Technologies, the microprocessor core 
| licensor, has identified penetration of the 
| cellular handset market as its top 
| corporate priority.
| "It's at the top of my agenda," Sandeep 
| Vij, who took over as CEO of MIPS last 
| January, tells Electronics Weekly, "two 
| customers are building chips for Android 
| handsets based on MIPS - one in China and 
| one in EMEA."



Android on HTC Kaiser (Tilt 8925)

,----[ Quote ]
| My current Android build of choice for my
| Kaiser, and the second one I would like to
| recommend here, is Myn's Warm Donut. Under
| this build I have a fully functional Android
| system on my Kaiser. Warm Donut is a variation
| of Andriod 1.6 for your device, this version
| is quite snappy/responsive. Which of the two
| builds you would like to use is up to you -
| personally I recommend trying them both and
| seeing which one you enjoy more/suits your
| needs.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
