Android, Yet Another Platform?

Let’s try to predict… Android, a Linux-based platform for mobile handsets that supports local applications via some kind of Java VM that is not Java ME/MIDP-based, with support to some kind of C-based SDK, and of course with support of mobile web applications via a local browser web-runtime, and access to services on the web such as OpenSocial API and other Google APIs. Anyone will be able to write applications for it, but at the end of the day, the carriers will still have control…

Google and the Open Handset Alliance, will it really change the game? It is possible; the landscape is changing… But Google ain’t Apple. Time will tell.
