mobile phone platform has gained a lot of positive attention over the past few months with some people predicting
that this will make Google the king of the wireless world. However, not everyone is excited about what Android brings to the table. In a guest post
over at GigaOm, Thomas Howe points out five sets of people who have reasons to be less-than-thrilled with Googles phone.
Some of the concerns are practical; Howe points out that Android developers dont have a specific phone to work off of in developing their applications so theyre going to have to debug each handset issue separately as applications hit the market. Other issues are business-oriented; Howe notes that AT&T and Verizon Wireless
arent supportive of Android so their customers are out of luck. But just for good measure Howe throws in the rest of the world as well, explaining that the problem in mobile application innovation is not a dearth of compelling mobile applications but that people dont know about existing applications.
