i like the way you work it: google android

I can hardly believe this is my life

Last night at the Notable TV Schmooze I got a new phone, again. Boooyah! This is my THIRD phone this year – Koodo, Rogers, Bell. Thankyouverymuch. Is that Telus calling? Cause I still wanna try an iphone y’know.

Lessons learned: 1) You don’t ask you don’t get. 2) If you ever have any doubt that you can achieve if you believe, don’t ! 3) Think positive, live positive & positive things will happen to you.

I won a Samsung I7500, with the Google Android OS. Here’s the specs for all you little nerds:

  • Android 1.5 OS
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, dual-band UMTS/HSPA
  • 528 MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU
  • 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive OLED touchscreen display
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 8GB internal flash memory
  • microSD slot
  • 3.5 mm stereo jack
  • Metal case, 11.9 mm thick

Party was fun. Familiar faces and a bunch of new ones. Didn’t stay too late. Food Dudes made good foods. Ater the open bar and a couple h9ours I could have used a massive sandwich. Overall, I’d call it another successful Notable Night! Thanks for the good times and new phone too 🙂

    I like it that the operating system, middleware and key applications are all very well thought out and seem very robust, but I worry a bit that even though the Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications that run on Android-powered devices, that compatibility issues will surface – hopefully doesn't turn into a vhs/beta thingy with windows and I hope they didn't rush it just to beat the windows platform to market.

    The fact that chrome and android do overlap quite a bit is helpful, and I like it that linux and webkit elements are present in the code for the platform.

    Apparently Asus has android in some of their netbooks too…..

    1. Android has a lot of potential. I love WinMo…but I don't. I just don't jive with the OS. The whole connectedness to the Google Cloud makes me swoon a little. I mean sure there's stuff on there I don't want Android to be connected to, but there are ways over that. I hear calendars don't always synch (ahem…you have a separate Google calendar and computer calendar etc etc) so you can't just merge work with social BUT again..ways to get around that.

    I think as a platform Android will become more and more powerful. Um hello Google Maps, Google Latitude, Google Maps Navigation, Google layers…did I mention GOOGLE?! 🙂 It's a solid OS for sure although it needs more app's but it'll get there.

    So Casie, what to DO with it now? I smell a contest/giveaway in the making!! 🙂 Do it!! DO IT!! 🙂 What do you need 3 phones for on different networks anyway?

    (I'll stop now. I got excited there and rambled.)

    I just had a Casie Stewart sighting – she was calling herself from one phone to the other. I followed her for awhile (I'm super sneaky), and she had like a fifteen minute conversation with herself! I can't wait until she has three!!

    Come on Telus, you can do it!!

    Third man into the fight bringing an iPhone would totally win.

    Nice. Have you tried any of the Twitter apps yet? I wonder if the Canadian app market is the same as the US one. My G1 and I are best friends. Android is teh awesome!
