Google 的手机野心和 Open Handset Alliance

Google一直都在说“狼来了” ,或者说(古)狗来了,现在狼真的来了。在今天的 Open Handset Alliance 会上,谷歌公布了它的Mobile Phone Plan 手机计划:开始开发第一个使用在手机上的开源平台 Android。这不是以前所谣言的 Gphone,而是一个更大的计划,成立的这个 Open Handset Alliance (我暂译成 开放手机联盟)旨在推广这个搜索引擎巨人的 Android 软件和与之联盟的商业拍档,主要成员包括 Google Inc., T-Mobile, HTC, Qualcomm, Motorola等。市场的反映:Google 的股票今天一度冲破 730 美元。

下面是Andy Rubin, 谷歌移动平台的总监,的原话:

Despite all of the very interesting speculation over the last few months, we’re not announcing a Gphone. However, we think what we are announcing — the Open Handset Alliance and Android — is more significant and ambitious than a single phone. In fact, through the joint efforts of the members of the Open Handset Alliance, we hope Android will be the foundation for many new phones and will create an entirely new mobile experience for users, with new applications and new capabilities we can’t imagine today.

那新闻的主要关注点有哪些?

  • Google CEO Eric Schmidt 说这个 Open Handset Alliance 联盟会比 Gphone 更大,目的就是要提供更便宜的手机和更好的上网经验。
  • René Obermann, Deutsche Telekom(也就是 T-Mobile拍档)CEO 说会在2008年推出一种基于 Android 操作系统软件的手机。而 T-Mobile 会是独家服务供应商。
  • Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corp., 说他们的 Android 设备会在 2008 下半年推出。
  • Android 与其他智能手机使用的平台 Symbian 有什么区别?这最大的区别就是 Android 将会是开源。
  • 这里的服务商的角色和商业模式。 Google 说它想要与手机制造商拍档比分成利润。
  • 疑问:既然是开放性平台,为什么 Nokia, Symbian, Apple, RIM 和 Microsoft 这些手机设备和软件大佬并没有加入。是不是,另外这些巨头在不久的将来也会成立另一个联盟?
  • 当然,希望收益的永远是消费者!
