 Congratulations to the ADC winners and finalists! 

Those apps look fantastic as a starting point for the newly-announced 
Android Market: 

Also, many thanks to the Android team, for not only surviving the ADC 
gauntlet, but for opening the kimono just a bit and describing the 
Market. Those of us trying to beat back the rumor-mongering welcome 
public statements like this that enhance the Android vision. Besides, 
it's always good to see places where we all can plug into the Android 

So, again, congratulations and thanks!

both weather application did not make it... what a waste to award them ADC

 Thank you all for providing benchmark standards in many categories.
The applications look like they will serve people well.  They make a
good and comprehensible foundation in that customers can figure out
that they want these!

A lot of people did, and managed, a nice set of work. Which is always
good to see.

Thank you,



Congratulations, ADC Winners / Thanks, Android Team!

 This is the beginning of the Mobile Revolution!

"After a pause to recover from the collapse of the telecommunications
economic bubble of the 1990s, the infrastructure
for global, wireless, Internet-based communication is entering the
final stages of development. The pocket
videophone I borrowed in Tokyo was proof that a high-speed wireless
network could link wireless devices and
deliver multimedia to the palm of my hand. The most important next
step for the companies that would deploy
this technology and profit from it has nothing to do with chips or
network protocols but everything to do
with business models, early adopters, communities of developers, and
value chains. It's not just about building
the tools anymore. Now it's about what people use the tools to do."

Apologies if this is a silly question, but is it necessary to flash an

Any one know?
