Are You Interested in Google's Cell Platform?

Are You Interested in Google's Cell Platform?

Yesterday Google quelled rumors of a Gphone and announced an Open Handset Alliance and Android, an open platform for cell phones that includes an operating system, user-interface and applications.

In a press release the company said it hopes "Android will be the foundation for many new phones and will create an entirely new mobile experience for users, with new applications and new capabilities we can’t imagine today."

Google developed Android with the Open Handset Alliance, which consists of more than 30 companies including Motorola, Samsung, LG Electronics, eBay, Sprint and T-Mobile.

As someone who is utterly addicted to Google's mobile features, such as Google Maps and Google 411, I can't wait to check out the new platform and see if it rivals the way the iPhone integrates Google applications. Are you eager to check it out, or were you expecting a Gphone?

Mmmm, Kara's Cupcakes ... Mmmm, cupcakes ... Sorry, what was the question? Anyway, I'm really excited for this! As I understand it, I'll still be able to pick my own phone and service provider, and that's important to me. If I end up with AT&T when my Sprint contract is up, I might still consider an iPhone, but it's so nice to have another potentially cool option.

I would love, love, love to check out the Google platform -- I just hope Verizon signs on, because my boyfriend and my entire family are on Verizon and we're not about to switch anytime soon. Hopefully I can get a Voyager with a Google platform!

I am a little bummed that they aren't doing a phone, but I am psyched to see the platform. I personally prefer windows, and even like window mobile, but there is something missing there that I think Google will understand more so then Apple.

I couldn't care less about the Google Platform. Google hasn't shown true innovative ideas over the last time in my humble opinion (sure, they buy a heckload of webservices and put the google button on them). Why yet another platform? We have the MS OS, Symbian and some others already. I'm far from convinced this will be anything better. Woohoo text ads when I want to call someone!

I can't wait to check it out - I wonder what applications will be built it. I don't think I could live without google maps anymore. It's the reason I show up anywhere on time.
