Is Android now turning into Win-Mo? January 3, 2011

I am not sure what it is about Android that feels like a let down but if pushed I’d say it is starting to turn into Windows Mobile what with all that bleating on about “open-ness”, cooked ROM’s, emphasis on specs and general all round smugness of the Android sites.

It is really getting a little bit familiar, our os is better than ios because we can tweek it to allow andoid 2.2.2.2.2.2.11111 etc on quicker than the official version and then guess what a whole running debate starts regarding why the thing now doesn’t work – Fucking idiots. Also the disparate nature of the os and the increasing fragmentation is starting to hurt as premium devices run anything and then everyone else has to mix and match. Premium software developers try to avoid android due to the need to develop multiple versions of their software. Google need to try to get this sorted and ensure parity of upgrades to latest versions of the os and not leave this to the handset providers and carriers who will have their own agenda’s. Microsoft appears to have understood this and is adopting this as their update model and whilst this may be restrictive it is likely to create uniformity.
