The HTC G1 is a pretty good device, showing lots of potential in the Android OS. As I wrote in my 2009 predictions I believe this year will be the year of Android, with devices coming from all major device manufacturers that’s not from Finland.
But, one phone does not make a platform.
The big question is how Android and the Open Handset Alliance will prevent the same fragmentation problems that plagues the Java ME-world as it appears on more devices.
Mobile Stance has a longer post on the subject, even suggesting that Google would benefit from fragmenting the OS as it would move application developers to web based solutions.
Going to be a very interesting year and I really look forward to the next batch of Android devices. Let’s hope they can hold it all together.
