    This could scare off or upset Google’s Android converts

    Google's 'Nexus One' test phone: Details emerge
    Posted on Dec 14, 2009 11:40 am by Ian Paul,


    Firm details confirming that Google would launch the Nexus One/Google phone on its own are still pretty scarce. There are also a lot of arguments against Google coming up with its own device. The primary one being that if Google produced its own device, it could scare off or upset Google’s Android converts such as Motorola and HTC. Nevertheless, a Google-developed phone could be an interesting addition to the continuing smartphone battle

    • Google's Nexus One with Android 2.2 is the ONLY Android "smartphone" can have Flash 10.1 player NOT any other Android Mobile Incluiding Motorols Droid X, which included Android 2.1 and NOT 2.2. How smart Motorola CEO is? and is he another Bill Joll???

    • Motorola is planning to split off its cell phone and set-top box business into a separate company led by co-CEO Sanjay Jha

    • The primary one being that if Google produced its own device, it could scare off or upset Google’s Android converts such as Motorola and HTC.

    • Google says integration with Chrome will make Flash more secure for users, and all Flash Player updates will be delivered through Chrome's automatic update feature.

    • Why Most Current Android Phones Will Never Get Flash 10.1

      By John Herrman on February 27, 2010 at 1:24 AM

      Flash is coming to Android phones, and for this, some of you are grateful. So when is it due? For some new handsets, the “first half of this year“. But the rest? Probably never.

      There are two factors that’ll determine whether or not your phone is ready and able to run Flash, whenever it becomes available. First, you’ll have to worry about software: As far as we know, Adobe is only planning on supporting Android 2.0 and up, meaning that unless you’ve got a Droid or Nexus One, you’re shit out of luck – unless, of course, your phone gets treated to an upgrade.

        .Share15 BARCELONA--A full-fledged version of the Adobe Flash player is coming soon to a whole slew of smartphones. Unfortunately, Apple's iPhone isn't one of them.

        Adobe announced at the GSMA Mobile World Congress here Monday that Flash Player 10, which is the full version of Flash that runs on PCs, will be available on smartphones running Windows Mobile, Google's Android, Nokia S60/Symbian, and the new Palm operating systems. Devices with Flash Player 10 are expected to hit the market starting in early 2010

    • And, when Google moves its PRODUCTs to Chrome then it will scare off and UPSET a lot more ODM and OEM in addition to Motorola.

      Did Google SCREW up Motorola too? They did SCREW up ON2 shareholders.

        Gosling: What's Good for Google May Not Be Good for Java

        Q: What do you think of Google's use of Java or the subset of Java they use?

        A: They are odd. It's not like the petulant kid who doesn't want to play with others. It's like they've got their head in the clouds and they're now saying, "Oh, you mean there are other people out there that we might want to play with?"

        It's really hard to tell what their intentions are with Android. They put this thing out there, and you've got lots of people picking it up. The big attraction seems to be the zero on the price tag. But everybody I've talked to who is building an Android phone or whatever, they're all going in and they're just hacking on it. And so all these Android phones are going to be incompatible.

        One of the reasons that we charge license fees is because we've got organizations of people that do compatibility testing and actual negotiating amongst the different handset makers so that things like GPS APIs look the same. And what's going on in the Android world is there's kind of no adult in charge. And all these handset manufacturers are doing whatever they damn well please. Which means that it's just going to be randomness. It could be let a thousand flowers bloom, but it also could be a dog's breakfast. And I guess having been around the track a few times, it feels like it's going to be more of a dog's breakfast.
