So about that “pre-G1″ Android demo video…

Posted May 09, 2012 at 1:18 pm in Threads > Opinions

In case you’ve forgotten or haven’t seen it:

I noticed the video isn’t a re-upload, and in fact has an original upload date of Nov 11, 2007. So out of curiosity, I went to the oldest page of comments ( as of this post). Some of them are pretty funny in hindsight.

Examples (emphasis mine):

This is what all developers can start building apps that simply ROCK!!!
Long live to JAVA!!!!
I’d like to see what iJobs can say now….with his Object C!

It seems a cool protype, but I don’t get what’s so special about it. I haven’t seen anything that I could not do with my Nokia N95.

There’s nothing special about this platform and I feel there’s the same amount of hype around android as there is on the iPhone. All of this is already possible with Nokia’s symbian. Also there are already a big list of on device portal vendors around, like abaxia, opera mini and thurderhawk, which also work on open standards (J2ME).
Too be honest I don’t understand why this get so much attention.

    I like these Android history lessons. Not only does Android and Me show us future Android tech but also where it came from :)
