ANDROID, ANDROID OS, David on Apple, Google.com, Mobile
I have not nor will I own an iPhone, with that said, I have been a long time Apple supporter and have in my house right now 2 Power Macs, 2 Mac Book Pros, 1 iBook, and 1 MacSE. I am no stranger to Mac or Apple. It’s not that I don’t think the iPhone is neat or super, it does not fit a need for me and that’s about it, I still want one but I don’t need one. I have no purpose for an iPhone and I would submit that over 50% of the people who have them don’t have a need for them either, it’s more of a want or a must be seen with, kind of thing.
Apple for more than 10 years has completely missed the Corporate IT boat and they have again missed it. I just don’t think they are thinking about it properly. Google on the other hand is going after small and large IT with reckless abandon and I think it’s grand. Google about a year ago released ANDROID, and phone based Open OS, and an SDK that exceed anything Apple was doing with the iPhone and xCode’s SDK. They both have strong points, but I think ANDROID is a bit more platform independent than iPhones seeing as how it runs on anything that will support Eclipse.
Well to keep this short, TMOBILE is going to release something tommarow using the ANDROID platform, and I can’t wait. They might not have a Blackberry shim for it yet but I am sure there will be a day real soon that the ANDROID platform is BES compliant.
