Mobile Fair: Google’s Android in action

February 11, 2008

British chip designer ARM Holdings VP of mobile solutions Rob Coombs gives us a look at Google’s upcoming Android mobile operating system.  This prototype contains a Texas Instruments chip based on an ARM design. Several members of Google’s Open Handset Alliance, to which ARM does not belong, are demonstrating Android prototypes at this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.  

This video was shot as part of the Reuters/Nokia mobile journalism project.

excellent phone, altho i would have to say iphone is a bit better looking, perhaps google’s idea is to use their power of popularity to sell this product rather than using Apple’s approach to use quality and beauty.

Looks very good, but it seems that a lot of people are expecting brand spanking new android handsets, given all the rumors prior to this event.

I guess we’ll all have to wait a little longer.

The image quality of the video sucks. “Looks very good” should wait for hi res.
