gruber adds on android's open hardware approach. [Jun. 27th, 2008|10:57 am]

Gruber quotes what I wrote about android, cool.

I agree with the addition of the CPU and GPU as another hardware permutation factor. I didn't write about that in the original post because I wanted to keep the post focused on the physical UI aspect of the totally-open hardware specification of android and what I think are the consequences for mobile app development.

there are some cool comments about this on my original blog post too. I particularly like the comparison of the iphone platform to a console gaming platform - which are even MORE rigid as a platform the the iphone is.. as there is only ONE hardware profile to develop for - the iphone has 3 three sets hardware permutation thus far (iphone, ipd touch and the 3g iphone).

I personally don't like the iPad, the bigger-not-so-improved version of the iPhone. Although it's easy to use, it's bloody big and you would need a backpack to keep that thing in. I've heard it has a file extensions application, but although I would need it, I don't think I'd buy that. I would buy a console gaming platform, though :).

Have you seen the picture with the guy who calls 911 from an iPad, yelling that he's shrinking? I laughed so hard when I saw that, it's sarcastic, but also true, it's just a larger phone. There are other gadgets that can be developed aside the iPhone.
