web 2.0 for development

The first competitor for the iPhone

Leave a comment

A new challenge for the iPhone was launched yesterday: it is the first mobile phone with Android inside.

Even if not everybody seems to be so enthusiast about the product, more than everything else in the DEV perspective, at least, I see a very interesting trend for prices. The announced price is 120 Eur (at certain conditions) which is fine is compared with many other models and the iPhone itself. So, the tendency of prices to get lower is happening this time as well and we can really start thinking about a wide spread of these tools, also in developing countries.

Linking this news with the possibility of wider access available in two years time, than the scenario could be very much different in the near future.

Are WE going the same direction? Will we be able to provide good services for that time? How much time do we need to design new services for these devices? Are our Human Access Points ready to help us designing them?
