Google Cellphone Software

November 6, 2007

Everybody in the tech realm knows about the announcement, and I don’t really have anything to add to the conversation… except a chance to vent. Yesterday when I read a brief summary (it was that short, hence the reason for my reduntant terms), I had one, and only one question. But first, a key quote that I read this morning in the Times:

“John O’Rourke, general manager of Microsoft’s Windows Mobile business, said he was skeptical about the ease with which Google would be able to become a major force in the smartphone market. He pointed out that it had taken Microsoft more than half a decade to get to its current level, doing business with 160 mobile operators in 55 countries.”

Now back to my vent. In all honesty I can say the first thought that popped into my mind when I read the announcment was: when the hell can I put Android on my Motorola Q? Seriously, I’m almost to the point where I believe anything could be better than Windows Mobile 5.0. And no, I don’t want to upgrade to 6.0.

Google, are you taking beta-testers? I’m a big fan. Please help me. Please.
