  1. “Apple’s iPhone ecosystem, so far has an advantage.”

    Didn’t know that Android is/has an ecosystem already…

  2. Om, where did you get the 30k apps number from? Reuters said that Google reports only 16k apps on Android Market. Are there 14k apps via other websites?

  3. I like to think that this is the cloud versus the widget from a development perspective. Are we/consumers/businesses ready for the cloud? The more the answer tends towards no, the better Apple will do in the competition for the hearts and souls of developers.

    Google will do fantastic with embedded systems and such. It would be important to categorize those projects according to functionality. What sorts of projects are each platform requiring? My bet is that the groupings will be similar to my initial description.

  4. Excellent article. I definitely agree that the Nexus One is going to be a huge step forward for Google. The one thing that Google needs to focus on is making their developers rich like Apple has. Developers are going to go where the money is and right now its at the apple app store.

  5. From my point of view it is important that the major hardware providers have android phones on ther roadmap. They will push android in order to fight apples iphone.

  6. The Nexus One is now on the German Market since Yesterday and at the moment i dont expect it to be as succesfull as the iPhone was/is. The artical is now 6 Month old…. how is the market share now in america? I thinks that will make the diffrence, is now one buyes the phone no one will develope for it.

  7. Android is not ready, i think, it is not really useable today, there are many problems with java scipt, so i can not read any website, but think it will be a good future, i hope so :-))
