REGISTRATION APPROVED — In the current economic climate, it might be hard to be approved for a car loan or a home loan. Fortunately, it wasn’t that hard to be approved for the Android Market! Here’s the message… “Your Registration to the Android Market is approved! You can now upload and publish software to the Android Market.”
The first Google Android phone is something of a mixed blessing. The device is more advanced than any other T-Mobile phone that I’ve owned. Yet, little things seem to pester my enjoyment of the G1. Without better headphones and a beltclip case, I’m having trouble getting comfortable with my phone.
A bit of a wet blanket on my Google Android Market endeavor is the $25.00 registration fee. But hey, I might make thousands of dollars here. I suppose I shouldn’t be too grumpy about that. I don’t mind spending the money. What I mind is the terms of service.
Ever do something new and then hear the voice of Sir Alec Guinness in your head? You know, Star Wars, Obi Wan Kenobi… “That’s Good! You’ve taken your first step into a larger world.” We really do live in magical times. The power of technology is not something to be underestimated. I have a dream of creating my own applications for the Google Android operating system, and then selling those programs for lots and lots of money.
What better way to review the G1 phone than to write this review from the device itself? For over three hours each day, I’m in commute. By car, train and even by boat, my trip leaves me without access to a desktop computer. Considering the nature of my business, that’s way too long. Instead of mindlessly gazing into space, this time can be more productive with a good phone.
