Mobile developer power toys review for Apple iPhone, Google Android, Microsoft Windows 7 Mobile, Blackberry, Nokia
Ok. I spent the entire yesterday downloading all the different mobile platform software development kits and emulators out there. This topic will be described from a Chief Technology Officer’s point of view on these mobile platforms. This would be very critical for the successful continuity of these vendors in the world as handset manufacturer or software vendor. I cannot stress the importance of why these companies need to get it together for the future of their business. The ones that get it will flourish, the ones that don’t will wither away no different than Palm, Netscape, and the like. It will always be in the hands of third party developers who will continue to make their mobile ecosystem worthy of the market to support. It is not about anything unique on their hardware handsets or mobile operating system. It is the third party development community that makes this happen. This is why the likes of Google Android and Apple iPhone are doing very well. Thank that third party to make that happen.
Let’s break it down for each major mobile platform. I am going to break down the losers first:
Sorry guys. You are a joke. With all these platform choices ranging from Mego or Symbian, I am already confused. Let alone all their handsets to configure my mobile apps for, I am not looking forward to developing with. I did not even try out your SDKs since the choice was to overwhelming and I was lost. All these new phones release makes the future of Nokia look more like a funeral than something rosy.
Next up, I will talk about my views of Microsoft Windows 7 Mobile, Google Android, or Apple iPhone.NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
