Re: Expanded Android Spread on the Devices

I think you might be mistaken on the last point about app compatibility in your earlier post.  From what I understand, the change from Dalvik to ART is only a change in the runtime, not in the .apk files that the applications are written in.  That is to say, developers won't be forced to rewrite their software for the newest system except to take other new features (such as UI changes) into account, but that's no different from any other android release.

Google partnering with Indian OEMs

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?

Expanded Android Spread on the Devices
Kinnar   6/26/2014 12:31:36 AM
NO RATINGS
With this announcement, the spread of Android will be expanded across the electronic devices, but the major problem with Android is its updates for the future releases. None of the Android releases in past are compatible with the existing old hardware. If this continues then this will be simple increasing the electronic waste in multiple folds. As if you change only the single device you will have to throw all of your other devices connected with it. Although it is committed that, "The software on Android One is the same that runs on stock Android. It allows audience and installers to install relevant apps and provides full automatic updates.", but this will be having many catches.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
