Are we getting closer to an mobile internet that actually works and can be used to its full potential?If Google get’s it way we might just… Enter left Open Source and free Android OS. Just finished reading this great article form Wired – Google’s Open Source Android OS Will Free the Wireless Web – on the subject. Let’s hope that manufacturer, network providers and software people see the potential and work this out among them self. Sooner (lets hope) or later they will have to, the power has shifted and will not go back… On that not we have Nokia who is jumping on the train as well. Nokia announced that they will acquires the rest of Symbian‘s stock and enter right Open Source Symbian Mobile Platform. That’s via the Symbian Foundation.Yes, now we have a few big players Android, Apple iPhone, Microsoft Windows Mobile and Symbian. Some more open that other…

I am eager and ready to reap the benefits out of a more open and faster moving mobile world…

Great part is that you can then play around with the clouds design by changing color schemes, fonts and positions. This is ye candy for a visual guy like me. And it actually gives you a great overview on what the texts are about. Created one form my CV and one form my account.
