Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
I hate the "will die" title but Antonio Rodriguz insightfully sums up the state of Android and it does not sound strong, to say the least. All the more reason to take a hybrid approach, e.g. project formerly known as PhoneGap.
Android as we know it will die in the next two years and what it means for you: I used to think that, as with Linux and web services in the early part of last decade, Android was going to be the mortar for the Internet of post PC devices— an essential ingredient to put stuff together. And as bonus, unlike Linux which puttered away quietly in the background doing the heavy lifting for services like Amazon and Google, Android was largely user-facing and would also therefore benefit from massive platform scale (and the resulting de-facto standard it would create) the way no piece of software since Microsoft Windows had.
