Nexus to focus on business customers
I'll be skipping that one. I'll go from iPhone 3GS to Nexus One to iPhone 4G.
Here's a quote from the interview:
He doesn't mention Exchange which is something I believe the N1 is sorely missing, but available on the DROID. The answers though don't seem conclusive, but some ideas that he is throwing out there: keyboard, world phone, then, he says... BUT, then it's a different device. Hard to read between the lines or understand what he's getting at.
I think he doesn't want to change the FF but add features that would appeal to an enterprise user. I thought it was telling that Andy Rubin says he continues to use his iPhone in the interview. I guess old relationships die hard.
I hope they manage to do something this year.
Lack of encryption and lack of hard security overall is preventing alot of users from coming over.
Iphones had this but the lack of KB , notifications , and lack of true multi tasking/push has kept those away.
It would be a great opportunity for Android to jump in.
Okay, so I watched the interview and Rubin said the "Nexus One" version of an enterprise phone might include:
- including "cloud computing" applications
- a physical keyboard on the front of the phone
- different battery characteristics
- a world phone
- it would be another phone, different form factor, maybe cheaper
That's what I'm doing as well.
