The G1’s real appeal lies in its promise of an open-source device that puts control in the hands of users.
Because G1 appeared, the leadership of the mobile phone might shift from the career to user.
More Open, More Hope.

The G1: Almost perfect(September 23, 2008、CrunchGear)
The G1 event has come and gone and it looks like we’re seeing an epic paradigm shift in the mobile space. iPhone started the ball rolling and Android is about the finish the job. The change? Phones are now officially computers and the expectation for most users is that they behave in the same way a powerful laptop or desktop PC would perform, albeit in a considerably more compact package.
Will T-Mobile G1 be a paradigm shift?
This might be a paradigm shift of mobile phone.
It is a stage that has moved to the age of the mobile phone as the Internet machine from the age of a past mobile phone.
It was thought that the competition by iPhone and Android was done ahead a little by the mobile phone of Android being launched on the market.
However, I noticed it was not so.
It is not “iPhone vs. Android”.
It is ” Smart phone vs. Past mobile phone”.
And, the developer will be greatly influenced by this paradigm shift.
The contents developer obtained the environment and the platform that was able to be developed more freely by iPhone App Store and Android App Market.
It is not possible to make an excuse the reason that it is not possible to do because the capital is also a little.
It is because it came to be able to obtain the success as long as it is at the talent and time even if it is the little capital.
A new age has come there soon.
To do or not to do; that is the problem.

T-Mobile G1 details, price, and launch date revealed(September 23, 2008 Crave CNET)
T-Mobile and Google just announced the first-ever handset with Google’s new Android operating system. Called the T-Mobile G1, it has both full touch-screen functionality, a QWERTY keyboard, a trackball for one-handed navigation, plus access to mobile Web applications like Google Maps Street View, Gmail, YouTube, and more.
I hear that T-Mobile G1 will offer access to Application store “Android Market”, which is an application store similar to the iTunes App Store.
I am interested in three points.
- How does Google compete with other mobile phones such as iPhone?
- Trend of application business in the future.
- Whether does localize do the mobile phone for Japan and Asia or not?

IPhone is the topic in Mobile business now.
There is a topicality in iPhone, and sales in all parts of the world seem to be also good.
There are a lot of the topics of the problem at the weakness of the battery and the speed of the 3G network etc recently.
However, sales of iPhone are said six million, and can be said that it is still few compared with a number mobile of the world.
Nokia is a number 1 when seeing in a worldwide mobile market.
A portable career manufacturer in Japan cannot compete.
I think that a mobile career and manufacturer in Japan cannot compete but do not try to compete.
I think that it does a good match if it thinks a portable career of Japan makes carrying in the platform of the world standard with a portable manufacturer and the portable contents manufacturer.
Mobile careers and manufacturers in Japan does good match Nokia if they makes mobile in the platform of the world standard with mobile manufacturers and the mobile contents manufacturers.
It is difficult to expect it because all are stories of assumption.
It seems that a level mobile of Japan is high if mobile of Japan are compared with mobile of the world.
Moreover, mobile contents are sure to have a lot of excellent things in Japan.
However, the mobile of Japan cannot fight against the world because it is not mobile of the world standard that can be used in the world when even the one is so wonderful.
So, a peculiar mobile culture might be made.
As if, only a portable culture of Japan is in the isolated island.
It might be near to close the country.
However, the application business of iPhone is open (However, though it is necessary to receive the inspection of Apple), and the mobile contents manufacturer in Japan also has come round the chance.
And, the mobile world is sure to be globalized further in the future by Android of Google.
Then, the chance comes to mobile contents of Japan more and more.
It might be mobile careers of Japan that becomes a problem.
It is necessary to discuss it like being able promptly to do mobile making of the world standard.
It wishes that the future of mobile business of Japan be bright.

According to an interview with Google co-founder Sergey Brin, the two projects will start working together more closely now that both are approached 1.0 releases, with the Android browser adopting much of Chrome’s inner workings. He also expects the mobile browser to pick up a new name to indicate the relation to it’s bigger, full-blown browsin’ brother.
A mobile version browser of Chrome seems to be installed in Android.
It might be an experiment that Google does with Google Chrome for Android.

Google announces Android Market for phone apps(August 28, 2008 CNET)
Google on Thursday announced Android Market, an online center that will let people find, buy, download, and rate applications and other content for mobile phones equipped with the open-source operating system.
I hear that releasing contents as easily as YouTube in Android Market will become possible according to the article.
Trader registration → Up-loading of contents →Release
I hear that the reason why Google is made naming named Android Market it is that it is thought that the developer should release contents by the more opening under a free environment.
This sounds like the remark to consider iPhone App Store obviously.
I receive the impression whose Android Market is freer than iPhone App Store.
The scramble for an excellent developer might start by Apple and Google.
