“Google used its London Developer Day on Tuesday to show a late build of its Android mobile operating system in an event that suggests continuing resistance to the platform,” Electronista reports.
“Using what’s now largely accepted as a prototype of the T-Mobile G1, Android chief Michael Jennings demonstrated the phone’s full HTML browser as well as its version of Google Maps and the accelerometer, which can affect both the operating system as well as specific programs,” Electronista reports.
“The atmosphere at the event was nonetheless apprehensive, according to anecdotal reports from the British event. Although every developer at the presentation was aware of Android, only a handful of “two or three” were actively creating programs for the software, with most described as hesitant to write code for the device versus the iPhone,” Electronista reports. “So far, only T-Mobile has elected to carry an Android phone in the US while Verizon and others have so far expressed just initial interest.”
