It's already past Christmas from my side of the planet, and am looking forward to a busy blogging year come 2010. After studying the stars, I've decided to talk a lot about Android in 2010. Why?
Well, why not?
Android uses the Java Programming for developing applications ... which would make my learning curve on the subject matter well within realistic levels. What's more, it runs on the Linux kernel, so it's suitable for this site. Perhaps the biggest motivation is the performance of "android" on Google Trends. Looks like lots of readers are getting more interested on this software stack for mobile devices.
Some of the cell phones that are powered by Android include: the HTC Dream, HTC Magic, HTC, Hero, HTC Droid Eris, Lenovo OPhone, Motorola Calgary, Samsung Behold II, Samsung Galaxy, and Motorola Droid.
Other devices include the Archos 5 Internet Tablet and the Barnes & Noble Nook, an eBook reader.
Android programs can run both 2D and 3D graphics, support common audio/video/image formats (mpeg4, mp3, aac, jpg, png, etc.), support built-in camera, support accelerometer, and even structured data storage through SQLite.
Thus, I personally believe it's going to be fun learning more about it.
