Post 10: Not Just a Windows Mobile Blog Anymore

522482

I just got my T-Mobile G1 this morning. Initial thoughts from a developer's standpoint:

Pros:

  • It's not Windows Mobile.
  • Richer UI development tools.
  • Android Market

Cons:

  • It's not Windows Mobile.
  • Java. (C# makes Java look like Corky from Life Goes On)
  • No MSDN.

I'm going to be switching gears and doing primarily Android development until Microsoft figures out how to ship a real mobile OS.

Does that mean that you are going to move away from Windows Mobile development?

I'll be doing both, but shifting my focus to Android.

It was a good decision. There seems to be more brighter future for Android than for Windows Mobile, because of its open sourceness like the last few years have shown already.
