I have spoke many times of my thought regarding Google being undervalued.
This past week we saw Google run up because of rumors and some facts about the new Google O/S for Cell Phones.
The Frenzy led to many articles trying to discount Googles greatness.
some liks the one here at InformationWeek http://www.informationweek.com/blog/main/archives/2007/11/googles_android_2.html?cid=nl_IWK_daily#community highlighted the fact that good applications and agood O/S on a mobile is not the problem but rather the network. Though the network is rather slow and needs improving there is a lot an O/S could help and this is where I think Google is on the cutting edge.
I think the greatness of Google is that they understand the users needs and the network constraints. I think they will be taking advantage of low speed networks and high quality programming enabling a super user expereince even on EDGE. Where Apple failed Google will win. Even on the iPhone the google maps works well as it was chopped up to work on Edge. I don't thing moving to 3G is the solution, I think learning how to move data over the slow network is where it at.
I have been a frequent user on my Cell Phone of the adapted for Mobile; Google's search page, Google's Froogle price comparison and Google maps. These apps worked as fast and as well as on a desktop. If this is an indication of whats to come on Google's Cell Phone then the world is in for a great suprize and the devices will be sold like hot cakes, I can't wait.
