Google Reveals More Platform Details
Nov 5, 2007, 1:42 PM by (staff)
In a conference call today, Google provided some additional information about its new mobile platform. Google's new partners make up the Open Handset Alliance. The OHA is a collection of 33 companies that includes chip makers, handset makers and carriers, among others. What Google hopes its OHA partners will do is use the new Linux-based mobile platform, called Android, to replicate the desktop application experience--and mobile web browsing in particular--on the handset. Android will be the basis for multiple handsets from multiple vendors and will be compatible with every data network available. Google said the core software and SDK will be available next week, but no handsets running the platform will be available until the second half of 2008.
