In a great little report over at DVICE I read this morning, blogger Kevin Hall pointed out that Google has grand plans for the Android OS… and it isn’t limited to the mobile scene.
Mark Hamblin, CEO of Touch Revolution and one of the key players in re-jigging Apple’s software to work with a touchscreen device is now working his butt off to bring Android to all kinds of gadgets and devices. Why be limited to mobile devices?
According to Hamblin, we may see Android on netbooks, digital frames, remote controls, you name it, the possibilities are endless:
“It would make sense for any [software vendor] to play there. I see tremendous growth in these ubiquitous computing devices.”
I can’t wait for the day I turn on my Android-powered netbook, turn on the Android-powered coffee maker, answer incoming calls on my Android-powered G14, and turn down the Android-powered furnace in my house. Wait… Maybe that won’t be a good thing… 🙂
