ANDROID DEVELOPERS and customers have been spoiled at the Google I/O
event today, with software updates, new services and free hardware
being dished out by the internet search, advertising and software
In its keynote session Google barely drew breath as it made
announcement after announcement, trumpeted its successes and thanked
its developer ecosystem.
So successful has the Android operating system been, the firm said,
that it is being activated on about 400,000 devices every single day
and is on 310 different handsets in 112 countries. This growth is
likely to continue, particularly since Google keeps updating Android.
Having been through eight versions already, Google announced the
latest Android release. It will release Ice Cream Sandwich, the name
we expected it to have, in the fourth quarter of this year. More
immediately, Google will start rolling out an updated Android 3.1
Honeycomb tablet OS today in the US.
My my, all that 'fragmentation' is just killing Android!
