There's been a lot of anticipation over Google developing something called a gPhone or Google Phone or whatever and entering the mobile market. Today Google announced Android, an open OS for mobile devices. The idea is rather than releasing a phone, they are, along with the Open Handset Alliance, working on something that can be used on all kinds of mobile devices.
This is exciting to me because while I love my Treo, I have longed for the ability to more seamlessly integrate and use things like Google Calendar with my mobile. As it stands I have to jump through various hurdles to sync my Palm with a useful online Calendar service and if I'm able to use something like this it has a lot of potential. I'm eager to see what this leads to. From where I stand it can only be good.
