1. Web Browser as Mobile Platform?

I know this question is not directly related to Android, applying to
mobile platforms in general, but I wanted an Android developer's

So how important is web browsing on a cellphone? Is it important
enough to be on every phone? If so, then why not extend it to become
the platform itself?

My reasoning is thus:

XML APIs and Javascript (AKA Actionscript and ECMAscript) will already
need to be present, and extending Javascript with types, threads, and
APIs to access phone functions/sensors would not be too difficult.

It is also easier to extend existing web apps with additional features
than writing them over again. For example, Adding GPS to the existing
web based Google maps should take just a few lines of code if the APIs
are done right.

And JIT compiled Javascript can achieve the same performance numbers
as Java at this point, though any time you reduce the memory footprint
of a VM, you compromise performance. Besides, if you really need the
best performance and deterministic behavior possible, C will still be

So, what says your gut?

2. iPhone-2 launch. 3G, GPS, $199. Is it over for Android, or is it irrelevant to Android?

If Android is making iphone open up more, so be it. Good for the end users,
that the big companies are taking us seriously.

Personally I think Android is opening up more doors and that's a welcome
fact. What was iphone doing until Android came up?
