Yeah it seems like this Android is for phone companies,
or that's google's current "spaghetti on the wall" idea.
Even if it sticks, if they're just trying to make it some 
"standard" for "companies", what will that buy the 
techie user? Nada. I'm finding it hard to motivate myself 
to even look at the SDK. Still skeptical, I have seen so 
many "toolkits". Just what I need another SDK hehe.
Reminds me of IBM "alpha works". Don't get too 
excited until it actually becomes a product and you 
understand what any licensing and distribution 
restrictions there are.
