 Honestly --

While the strategy of Google to encourage development of bells/whistle
apps is nice -- and generates some interest in Android platform, I'm
very surprised there was no specific focus (ie. $$$ awards) for
business-class applications for Android.

While I'm happy to play with all fun apps while at bar -- the reason I
BUY (or burn cycles installing) an Android phone would be for business-
class apps.

How about any/all the following:

IPsec VPN client
SSH client
SCP/SFTP client
RDP remote desktop
VNC client
IM aggregator -- similar to Trillian
Twitter client -- similar to Twibble
SNMP mgmt statistics gather
Kismet similar  (WLAN capture)
Wireshark similar  (LAN capture)
google apps plugins (ie. edit local, post to shared google app-space)
blogspot plugin (ie. edit local, post global)

etc.. blah...blah...blah..

as well.

 If it's an "enterprise" application, the "enterprise" is likely to pay
for it anyway. Thus making a competition with monetary award kind of
moot if you ask me.

 I've seen a few of these floating around in discussion online already
- a lot of them in the google code archives.


I'd love to see the corporate VPN vendors release access clients, agreed.

In google code is ConnectBot - looked to be at a reasonably settled
state  < http://code.google.com/p/connectbot/> ;


Again, work is being done in google code < http://code.google.com/p/android-vnc/> ;

Though the native G1 client does multiple prototcols, it splits the
traffic across IP and SMS.  I expect this will be quickly met by the
