Google Embraces Android, Goes Mobile
GOOGLE has gone mobile in a very big way as a key member of the Open Handset Alliance, which recently launched Android, described as “the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices”.
The Open Handset Alliance (other members include T-Mobile, HTC, Qualcomm and Motorola) aims to lower the cost of developing and distributing mobile devices and services (and make it easier to access and use the internet on mobile devices).
Android is open-source and the Open Handset Alliance has released an early access software development kit to provide developers with the tools necessary to create innovative and compelling applications for the platform.
The first phones based on Android should be available in the second half of 2008. Google boss described Android as “far more ambitious than (the) 'Google Phone' ... our vision is that (this) platform will power thousands of different phone models."
Google is offering of $US10 million in developer design incentives to propel innovation on Android.
