然后欢迎使用Android

谷歌工程副总裁Vic Gundotra,5月在I / O开发者大会上登台,关于Google创建Android的原因

If Google didn’t act, it faced a draconian future where one man, one phone, one carrier were our choiceThat’s a future we don’t want.

Skyhook Wireless昨天向谷歌提出“投诉和陪审团要求”(我正在托管他们整个文件的副本(PDF),我强烈建议你阅读它 - 它不长,而且用非常直接的简单语言编写),关于谷歌控制哪些设备可以访问Android Market:

22Google’s established practice in determining Android compliance consists of two stepsThe first step requires each Android-enabled device, and its embedded software, to be run against the Compatibility Test Suite (CTS), a software-based test platform that objectively evaluates whether the device and software are compatible with the published Android specificationsThe second step involves a review of the device and software based on an amorphous outline of additional, non-standardized requirements known as the Compliance Definition Document (CDD)This entirely subjective review, conducted solely by Google employees with ultimate authority to interpret the scope and meaning of the CDD as they see fit, effectively gives Google the ability to arbitrarily deem any software, feature or function “non-compatible” with the CDD.

23On information and belief, Google has notified OEMs that they will need to use Google Location Service, either as a condition of the Android OS-OEM contract or as a condition of the Google Apps contract between Google and each OEMThough Google claims the Android OS is open source, by requiring OEMs to use Google Location Service, an application that is inextricably bundled with the OS level framework, Google is effectively creating a closed system with respect to location positioning. Google’s manipulation suggests that the true purpose of Android is, or has become, to ensure that “no industry player can restrict or control the innovations of any other”, unless it is Google.

I / O的Vic Gundotra:

If you believe in openness, if you believe in choice, if you believe in innovation from everyone, then welcome to Android.
