RE: [newtech-1] first videos of iPhone killer - Android. full screen

Joel,

 

Google will not be releasing hardware.

 

Handset costs wont be 'subsidized' by advertising. Eg no free phones as you are suggesting.

 

The Android O/S will however change the mobile ecosystem. By drawing a line in the sand and only allowing high end hardware, with highly flexible software Android will be the next ‘big thing’ with far more feature rich capabilities.

 

Expect to see way more ‘widgets’/marketing tie-ins for the Android family of handsets than you currently see for the iphone. For you personally you might also want to begin looking at implementations of the ‘Moseycode’ 2d bar code for super advanced interactive marketing campaigns, I know it’s a little early considering there isn’t even a single handset released but you cant get too big a lead on your competitors.
