With the release of the Nexus One phone I decided to look into Android phones and development a little more last night. After reading a quick couple of tutorials I had a simple app that would allow you to update your Twitter status.
At first glance it seems to be simpler to construct Android apps over iPhone apps. I’ve also done a bit of work on iPhone apps and the entry to these seems a lot higher.
I don’t think Nexus One will topple the iPhone, there is still a very “cool” factor to owning an iPhone that I don’t think the Nexus One will be able to gain.
I’m due to get a new phone in a couple of months and I am considering an Android but even I’m still tempted by the iPhone. Then being in England where it could be a while till we get a decent tariff for the Nexus One could also be a barrier.
