Google At the Google I/O conference, Google just held its second keynote address, which focussed on Android. The talk was held by Vic Gundotra, and he unveiled a number of new features coming in Android 2.2 "Froyo", as well as some features coming in Froyo+1. The main theme of the entire keynote? Openness and choice, and a whole bucketload of not-so-subtle jabs at Apple. I'd like to apologise upfront for a possible lack of critical notes in this article - I'm still handing out the brownie points to Google for yesterday.

Because Android is an OS released by Google, and your handset is a device made by someone else. Google doesn't dictate the terms of use of Android to the handset manufacturers; if they did, you'd no doubt be bitching about that and saying it shows how not-open Android is.
