Sorry no GPhone, its Android-mobile OS

So folks no Google phone,its only open platform software -feeling cheated :-)Look’s like Google is trying to solve the technology problem prevailing in the industry. First it was OpenSocial, and now comes another Open Handset alliance. I was kind of excited with this whole OpenSocial deal. Nonetheless, open handset alliance is big yawning news to share. Why in the world will the consumer care about open alliance platform. Maybe, this news is only for geeks. From an average Joe standpoint, he doesn't give a damn about android or any other OS. All he cares about is some cool features he likes in the handset. Maybe, android promise is to bring in these features on most of the handset. Oh boy, we do have so many mobile OS that can support all these features. One more OS to learn for developers.
So what is android—android is a complete set of software for mobile devices an operating system, middleware and key mobile applications. Open Software, Open Device, Open Ecosystem

Here is what open handset alliance has to say about android

“Android was built from the ground-up to enable developers to create compelling mobile applications that take full advantage of all a handset has to offer. It is built to be truly open. For example, an application could call upon any of the phone's core functionality such as making calls, sending text messages, or using the camera, allowing developers to create richer and more cohesive experiences for users. Android is built on the open Linux Kernel. Furthermore, it utilizes a custom virtual machine that has been designed to optimize memory and hardware resources in a mobile environment. Android will be open source; it can be liberally extended to incorporate new cutting edge technologies as they emerge. The platform will continue to evolve as the developer community works together to build innovative mobile applications “

So android should be heartening news for developers and manufactures of mobile services and devices. Using android libraries and tools, developers should be able to unleash lot of innovative applications

More than 30 companies have formed the Open Handset Alliance, which aims to accelerate innovation in mobile and offer consumer a richer, less expensive, and better mobile experience. Participating vendors include Motorola, Qualcomm, HTC and T-Mobile; but not AT&T and Verizon.
BTW, mobile phones with Android are not expected to be available until the second half of next year.
