,----[ Quote ]

| that Google insists on fragmenting its 
| fledgling market. Meanwhile, BlackBerry is

| following the introduction of Windows 
| Phone 7 - has leapt from 13 per cent to 39

| polled  are considering Android as opposed 
| to 29% for the iPhone.  While the number

Google Is Missing an Android Opportunity on Non-smartphones

,----[ Quote ]
| Android is growing like crazy on 
| smartphones â and stagnating everywhere 
| else. Thatâs because Google is keeping its 
| app store off all Android devices that 
| arenât smartphones. Such an approach is 
| understandable only in the sense that it 
| gives the company more control over the 
| Android experience, but it will ultimately 
| serve to send consumers in search of 
| devices that offer them more freedom.
| Take the ARCHOS Internet Tablet that 
| debuted in September of last year. The 5-
| inch slate device offers a mobile web 
| experience powered by the Android 
| platform, yet doesnât offer access to the 
| Android Market â preventing its owners 
| from making use of even the most basic 
| Google apps, like Gmail.



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

| 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.
