Google Android Set to Debut on G1 Phone

Michael Ferrerya asked:

It seems as if Google are trying to rule the world at the moment. Not only do they own most of cyberspace, they have now come to the conclusion it’s the right time for a foray into the cell phone and mobile handheld gadget market. One such Google adventure is the Android OS, which runs on a Linux-based platform and is open-source, and is also well placed to hit the handheld market in a big way.

Android Inc. was acquired by Google in 2005, and that is why rumours surfaced about their incursion into the cell phone sector. The Android was almost an unknown quantity outside of Google HQ, and the only thing that was known was that they (Google) had developed some cell phone software. They started working on an operating system which was Linux based, and was to be targeted to a range of cell phone manufacturers worldwide. And because the operating system was to be open-source, applications that could be used on compatible handsets could be created.

A year later, rumours started to surface again, with increasing speculation that Google was in the process of developing a handset which was to be called the GPhone. In reality, Google were testing the waters in the mobile payment system market. This is the system that lets users send a text message to Google containing details of a specific payment made to a third party. The system was patented in 2007 and is essentially an eWallet type design which acts in a similar vain to an online banking system, by debiting users accounts with the sum of money and then crediting this same amount to the payee’s account. This system can be used in shops as credit or debit card alternative, on the basis that it is very secure. A potential user would also have the ability to view their bank details and statements on their mobile device, giving rise to easier financial management.

This is all great, but what happened to all the speculation about the planned phone from Google? Well, T-Mobile has announced that the G1 GPhone will be in the shops by the end of the year. The G1 handset will be pre-loaded with Gmail, Google Talk and Google Maps, as well as benefiting from the Android open-source market.

For those unfortunates who are unable to write Java (the Android programming language), one of the plethora of other handsets that are obtainable will have to do, as there would still be a large variety of features to keep one going.

They’re So Cheap! A General Overview of Google Android-Based Devices and Applications

Tina Schwartz-Miller asked:

The concept of the Android operating system is quite simple: a bunch of computer companies and other independent developers banded together to create an operating system that is well-suite for mobile devices like phones, PDA’s, and until recently, tablet computers.

Mobile operating systems differ from the regular OS because they are geared more on striking a balance between efficiency and aesthetics, as computing power for mobile devices are vastly limited due to their size. Android is like Windows CE, which is also another mobile system from computer giant Microsoft.

Open Source (Wow! Tons of Freebies!)

However, unlike Windows CE, Android is an open-source software program, which means that pretty much anyone with the requisite technical know how can tinker with the device, create applications, and use it almost anywhere they want. Android’s open-source trait has led thousands of developers to take advantage of it by creating programs without having to go through much guesswork, which happens a lot when programmers create software for proprietary operating systems.

Because it wouldn’t require tons of capital to create stuff for the Android, many upstart android-based software and hardware developers have joined in the fray. This is a good thing because consumers will have more to choose from, as opposed to a small array of options from a small group of manufacturers.

Customer Support Mechanism (or the lack of it)

However, this perceived advantage also became a big issue for most consumers. A countless number of small companies (and even home-based hobbyists) create so much stuff for the Android without the have a strong and well-organized customer support department. Basically, this means that any consumer who gets so hooked up on a certain program or gadget and eventually runs into trouble will inevitably left to his own devices (pun intended).

This issue will become even more pronounced as Chinese manufacturers have started to create extremely low-cost tablet PCs that run on it. When I tried to shop around in eBay and in other online stores, the best kind of information that I can get about these tablets are their basic specifications, nothing more and nothing less. The manufacturer’s name is not even there, and even if it is, it will be some obscure manufacture in some obscure corner of the planet.

Bottom-Line

Android technology can be considered as still in its infancy. However, one look at the price tag will make you tell yourself, “It’s so cheap I wouldn’t even mind if it doesn’t work.”

Samsung Galaxy S Giorgio Armani – Providing The Ultimate in Smartphone Style

Chris Westley asked:

The Samsung Galaxy S has recently received the Giorgio Armani treatment, with a full aesthetic makeover, adding a stylish twist to this wildly popular Android smartphone. With a completely new look including a slightly squarer handset, it also comes with striking Giorgio Armani branding and a stylish carbon fibre finish. It looks like Samsung and Armani will have a success on their hands thanks to this fashion statement in smartphone form.

The handset not only looks great, but under the hood comes with all the features and functionality you would expect from an Android smartphone. It comes with Android 2.2 Froyo as its operating system of choice. This works alongside a powerful 1 GHz processor for a lightning fast user experience, as apps are loaded and operated in a breeze, and navigating the user interface with the touchscreen is done in a flash. The OS also offers access to the Android Market whereby users can browse thousands of free and paid apps from every conceivable category, meaning the sky is the limit in terms of customisation and versatility.

The handset measures 122.5x 64.2x 9.9mm. Therefore, it is not only extremely stylish, but also very slimline and pocket friendly, and weighs in at an unbelievable 123 grams. It comes with a 4 inch super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen which results in amazing display quality of the onscreen imagery, be it photos, videos or games, or even embedded Flash content on websites, thanks to the Flash 10.1 compatibility.

With the Samsung Galaxy S Giorgio Armani, you can keep all your music tracks, video clips and photos with you at all times thanks to a generous 16GB of built in storage capacity. Because 16GB is ample for the needs of most users, it is unlikely that they will need to utilise the microSD slot, but should this be necessary, a memory card of up to 32GB can be accommodated. As standard, users are also treated to photocall and a spacious internal phonebook.

A 5 megapixel digital camera is located on the back of the handset, on hand to take high quality still images with its pixel resolution of 2592x 1944. It also comes with autofocus, touch focus and face & smile detection, making the task of taking quality photos a breeze. HD video can also b recorded with this camera, and this is in 720p quality. Once you have filmed a masterpiece, you can wirelessly stream it to a compatible HD TV thanks to DLNA.

The Samsung Galaxy S Giorgio Armani is also a competent web browsing device. Its initial means of internet connection are provided via HSDPA in areas with 3G coverage. This provides download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps, although a faster and more reliable connection can be gained by utilising local wireless networks with the full Wi-Fi connectivity.

Loads of standard features are included, ranging from multimedia and web browsing apps along with social networking integration. The combination of advanced software and head turning hardware means you are assured with the ultimate smartphone experience with the utmost style with the Samsung galaxy S Giorgio Armani.
