The momentum behind Android is amazing. I have been keeping an eye on Androids progress and it is simply staggering. Many of the biggest phone manufacturers such as Motorola, HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson have released Android phones and have many more in the works. Not all the best phones are making it to Australia and some are getting here too slow. Australian carriers are starting to get behind Android and competition to release the best handsets and plans seems to be heating up.
The Android market has somewhere in the region of 70,000 apps and is growing rapidly. One of the great things about Android phones as you can get apps from anywhere. You are not tied to a specific site or application. AppBrain is a site that enables you to browse the apps in your desktop browser and install to your phone with one simple click.
Google have just released App Inventor a simple to use, with No programming required app builder. This should make building quality apps easy and hopefully it wont flood the market with copy cat apps all doing the same thing.
