Applications being rejected for apparently recreating features of iTunes. Couple this with even more developers annoyed by the NDA, stopping them from discussing the platform with other developers!And honestly, do you use all those applications? I have 3 pages of apps on my iPhone and only use a few 3rd party applications.I very much respect Google, and believe the new mobile experiences on Android and the iPhone will filter down to the average consumer. These guys love the web, and the whole announcement yesterday for the G1 was centered around its web capabilities.We are facing a platform war in the mobile space, and it will be interesting to see who wins, or whether a few companies can hold a decent market share percentage.

I know a lot of teens (and even younger kids) have phones but when I think that I run six cards and only one phone I wonder how that all adds up. Don't doubt the veracity of the statistic (though I'd like to know the source) just intrigued.

An awesome device, unmatched by anything on the market.The App Store is the #1 reason it will continue to be my favourite phone. I have 5 'pages' of Apps now!Android is a good idea, but I just can't see it getting past the HomeBrew boys and girls. Too many devices, configurations and problems. It's like Microsoft all over again - trying to be compatible with anything and everything.

The more manufacturers the better, so we won't have to wait around for dinosaurs like MS, Apple, Sony ect to get their acts together and it should also force them to stop pretending that 5 year old technology is cutting edge.

Everyone else will wonder what all the fuss is about. Tue 23 Sep 2008 08:31:47 GMT+1
