Still No Android Code for Developers

As developers continue to pound away at their Android based applications some have nothing but praise for the open source OS, while others decry it’s short comings. In an article released on January 19, (Saturday) Elise Ackerman of the San Jose Mercury News writes As Google seeks to position itself to be the Microsoft of mobile by offering a free must-have operating system, it is running into Microsoft-style problems that could complicate the Mountain View company’s efforts to expand into the mobile advertising market, which is expected to be $11 billion in just three years.” Some developers are grumpily awaiting the release of the “code” that was promised by Google. One of the more frequent criticisms Android Guys has heard from developers is the lack of a basic set of phone tools Android is lacking. To be fair to Google they have said all along that the released version was a “work in progress” and that updates would be released to address these issues. As for the source code? Google plans to release it after the first Android capable phones have hit the market later this year.
