A joint venture between a respected Japanese electronics corporation and a Swedish telecommunications firm has given Google a significant pat on the back. Sony Ericsson in fact declared Android the “best development platform” late last week.
Granted, Sony Ericsson’s standing in the mobile industry isn’t what it once was, and so its support might not count for a whole lot these days. Still, it’s hard to disregard what an entity with Sony Ericsson’s history has to say.
The organization’s also quick to point out that it isn’t alone in liking Android. Sony Ericsson said in a statement, “Android, the open source mobile application operating system, is the best platform for brands to choose as it is already favoured by large numbers of developers and it is now expanding into further countries at a rapid rate . . .”
Furthermore, “Plenty of organisations have chosen to develop their applications on Android and, as stated by telecom research firm Ovum, the platform is poised for tremendous growth over the next couple of years.”
So this is definitely a well-thought-out endorsement developers should pay attention to.
