reBlog from A VC

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

I found this fascinating quote today:

The world wide web is a global network of interconnected communications systems that allows any computing device to connect to it. Those devices run operating systems that allow any application to be installed on them. And so any developer anywhere in the world can build a web app (or desktop app) that can participate in the world wide web.

That is not true of the mobile web. The mobile carriers have all connected to each other and to the web. But not every device can run on every mobile network. And not every mobile app can operate on every mobile device that is connected to the mobile web….

I love what Google is doing with Android and while I’ve yet to find an Android phone that can replace my trusted Blackberry, I think Android is going to be a big success. They’ve got the right approach to the market, they are open in every way possible. That’s the winning model, for Google, for the consumer, and for the mobile web. I’d like to see Apple emulate it, but they did not with the Mac twenty-five years ago and they may make the same mistake again. I hope, A VC, Aug 2009

Motodev Studio for Android

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

This weekend i tried Motodev Studio for Android after i read in the news that Motorolla launched his beta version of this Development KIT. More background information (especially about App Accelerator Program)  can be found on the Motorola Website in the developer section.

Motodev Studio is based on Eclipse, the famous IDE, and if you know how Eclipse work you will not need much of time to get in touch with Motodev Studio. If you got already the Android SDK installed, you have only to change the Android preferences under “MOTODEV Studio – prefernces – Android prefernces” to get the IDE work with your Android project.

I will discuss my experience and future benefits of this development kit of motorola with my partners (more…)
