Come tomorrow and yet another product from the master aka Google is about to be released. Google is all set to release the world’s first completely open and free mobile platform, Android. Android, developed by the The Open Handset Alliance, a group ofover 30 technology and mobile companies is the working hand behind the project.

T-Mobile is releasing a new handset HTC Dream tomorrow and it runs on Google Android. The phone will go on sale in late October. Here is how it might look.

  • Optimized graphics powered by a custom 2D graphics library; 3D graphics based on the OpenGL ES 1.0 specification (hardware acceleration optional)
  • SQLite for structured data storage
  • Media support for common audio, video, and still image formats (MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, PNG, GIF)

Such is the reputation of Google that Android is a well sought after platform even before its release with many people wanting their mobiles running on it. I also want my P1i to run on Android, atleast for a change.
