Google Inc. company presented first mobile with new Google Andriond platform at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. This phone missing some sophistication, and it is not made for sale because it is not final version. We can expect final version of Andriod cellphone in the third quarter of this year. Google didn’t released final specification for this phone, which is going to beat with Apple iPhone and smartphones with Windows Mobile or Symbian platform.

Google phone based on open source Android OS

The largest advantage of Android OS is fact that it is open source, and Google round up thirty chip and software companies in this project. Last year we heard some rumors that Google is want produce phone which is going to be direct concurrency to the Apple iPhone, so announcement that this is operating system made by software companies union was disappointment for many people. On other hand Google never denial that some day they will made cellphone by them self.

Texas Instrument, the biggest chip producers made prototype which offer “one-button” internet browsing, e-mail, messaging and video. Google said that on the firrs view thie phone is not offering anything spectacular, because this OS is installed at the middle-class cellphone, but main advantage in Android OS, is it will make easier producing new cellphones and new application for cellphones.

Google has a chance to take big cake in smartphones industry because there is no dominant platform, and open source solution can beat other operating system. Windows Mobile, and Symbian had less than 50% of market, and application development on those platforms can be very hard job. Open Source Android OS, offer backage with basic function for application development plus it is based on some Linux version. Linux community is very large and in future we can expect a lot of application for Android platform, because everybody can make application and offer it on the public network.
