Swing by TechNewsWorld when you’re done reading AndroidGuys this morning. There’s a 33 minute podcast with John Bruggeman, the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Wind River. In the event you don’t already know, Wind River is one of the founding members of the Open Handset Alliance. John talks about Android being the game changer for the mobile industry. We’ve mentioned here before that he feels the potential for MID’s is vast, but this podcast adds more to his argument.
I don’t think that the extreme is that improbable, that the actual connection price would go down to zero. I could have a mobile phone and pay a $0 monthly fee. The ad revenue is where the real dollars are here, as well as all the location-based value that you can do.
If you are new to AndroidGuys, please be sure to check out some of our own podcasts and previous articles as we tackle the subject of free phone service and ad revenue. Very exciting stuff as John reminds us that we’re not years away from this potential, it’s next year.
