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.

But that's not what we have with Android. It's free software - *any* company can use it to build a phone*. If you try to build another product with Apple's OS/X, even if you pay for a retail license, you get a thundering herd of lawyers. Ask Psystar.


(* But if you want to use Google *trademarks*, that's different - you'll need a license, as well you should.)
