Ok, so there wasn’t a line of eager people around the block at your local Verizon store waiting for the launch of the Droid. But thats ok. Sometimes the things that make the biggest waves don’t start that way (and sometimes the things that start by making a big wave, fizzle out – example: myspace).
There has been loads of skepticism surrounding the new open-source mobile operating system, Android. It’s been said that it is too late for anyone to catch up with the iPhone’s impressive 100,000+ app offering. It’s been said that Android is at risk of splintering into several less impressive versions of itself.
But the truth is – this year for Android was just the dress rehearsal. The G1 and the Droid were just tiny sparklers – experiments before the real fireworks. The apps coming out for Android are getting better by the second (litterally – because there’s no Apple approval process – designers can make updates to theirs apps from real time feedback from customers).
I can’t wait to see the incredible phones and apps and resources coming in 2010. And I really can’t wait to hear someone talking about the newest iPhone and how it doesn’t measure up to their Android phone’s abilities.
