Yes, this is what I have been working on. In six days, we will tell you everything, we promise!

So you’ve been working on the same project as Romain Guy. Has Google built a French team on purpose to work on that project ?

Strangely, I was thinking exactly like Ludovic.
So, is android a pure frenchy thingy ?
Even weirdier, you never seem to be (like Romain in fact) in the mobile way of life. Is it a change, or am I missing a point ?

I’ve been working in the mobile area for a while, my previous project was the Java ME Gmail application. I posted the following pretty much exactly a year ago:

Well, no offense here. But the Gmail ME application has always been flaky on Blackberry! Not sure if the Gmail mobile team is trying to improve it but ,for instance, a lot of Blackberry users are complaining about Gmail app freezing when composing long emails.
This is really frustrating. Everything works fine until you reach a certain limit, and then the whole thing freezes up and the email is lost
without being saved as a draft.
Does the Gmail ME app is running on the Android platform?
gmail version : 1.3.0
BB curve OS : 22.214.171.124 platform 126.96.36.199

I will be among the first to download the SDK on November 12, I promise.
I can’t wait to see what role Java is playing on Android.

Apple got it right.
I see Esmertec in the members of the Android alliance, they’re one of the biggest JVM manufacturer for cellphones. The cellphones runs Linux. So I guess Java’s going to be available.
But having worked in the cellphone industry since years (Java and BREW) I can tell that Java is *NOT* the answer to third-party cellphones apps.
The answer is Web-based apps, just like, say, my beloved GMail Webapp that I can’t live without anymore.
Regarding the flaky GMail Java J2ME app on Blackberry: RIM’s JVMs are the worst of all mobiles JVM implementation, so don’t blame Cedric.
What’s my incentive to write an app today for cellphones that will *NOT* work on an iPhone, seen their fast growing market share?

The future is Silverlight, Flex and maybe Android and/or some other kind of Java-based system.
Maybe we can call this Ajax mess “Web 2.0″ and the next generation “Web 3.0″ ?
The next generation will have to work offline also. Many applications will operate location-based and because of the huge amount of user-specific data, caching on the phone will be very important. Don’t forget, more than half of the users on this planet will *only* have a mobile phone and no PC.
Today is November 12, Android day, I think it’s going to be a happy day.
(BTW: There are rumours that the iPhone will also come with a Java SDK soon.)

Happy happy day.

I think the Anonymous Apple Troll wrote this before they heard that Apple is indeed creating an SDK, otherwise I think the KoolAid might have a different flavor.
