I think it is a logical demand, but let the Google first focus on compatibilities with their own versions. If they can handle it they can go ahead working on compatibilities with other OSs as well. 

I know that these two issues are not connected much with each other, but it requires enormous amount of efforts, to make the devices compatible with other OSs it needs to standardize the hardware, and that I think Google will not be ready to do. Browser is a completely separate case in OSs, and because of its uniqueness they could do it.

I am surprised to know that these are manufacturers. As far as I know that none of these are having their own manufacturing units, they are simply importing their phones from different Chinese original manufacturers. If you see their website you will not find consistencies in their models, every other day they are coming with a new model, very fast as compared to Nexus, iPhones, Moto etc!

Jessica - "I think they'll need to be compatible (or "seamless") with non-Android handsets."

 

I totally agree. That's one of the nice things about my Google Docs example. It doesn't matter what OS, device, or browser is used. It just works. I also don't have to do anything special to set it up that way.

For Android wear/Google-based platforms to really take off, I think they'll need to be compatible (or "seamless") with non-Android handsets. Or just not require tethering to handsets at all.

Not only will Google have to deal with battery life, but its partner devices should integrate wireless charging - preferably resonant or RF.

None of the Android releases in past are compatible with the existing old hardware.

@Kinnar, I agree with you. I recently updated android version on my mobile and now my mobile is getting restarted often. I am not sure if its hardware incompatibility problem.

""We want the experience to be seamless, it shouldn't matter what device you were using before, we want you to be able to pick up where you left off," Pichai said, adding that Google's philosophy puts mobile devices at the center of the user universe."

Google does a nice job with the capability in Google Apps. I can have a Google doc open, at the same time, on my phone, my tablet, my desctop PC, my laptop and my Chromebook. Whatever I type on one immediately shows up on all of the others.

That feature virtually eliminates the concept of needing to sync. It also works when other people are working on the same shared document. I can see the possibility of edit wars between telecommuting co-workers, but I haven't heard of that happening yet.

The article says, "Google partner with three Indian OEMs to create a Smartphone with dual SIM cards, an SD card, 4.5 inch screen, and FM radio for under $100.", but on the contrary there are not even a single OEM in India manufacturing their own mobile handset, then from where Google has found three different OEMs in India? 

@Kinnar, the three Indian OEMs are Micromax, Spice and Karbonn.

If Google can fix the battery efficiency issue with Android it would be awesome.

@Sheetal, I agree with you. Google is already aware of this and that is why they have started project Volta to improve Android battery life.

@joondan : The discussion is not to have a same resolution display in all the devices. The discussion thread is extending on compatibility. This original post was to bring in notice that upgrades without considering previous compatibilities will be increasing e-wastes. No doubt that Google is doing fairly good, and it is the pioneering force in letting virtually every hand a smart OS/Phone.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
