Is That Your Final Answer?

Roy Pea in the "Pockets of Potential: Using Mobile Technologies toPromote Children’s Learning," report released Friday:

Android is what both the industry and the academic development community are most enthusiastic about, and rightly so.

Eric Zeman, today (via DF):

We're only halfway through the first day at Mobile World Congress and already things are looking bleak for Android. Many of the major manufacturers have already announced their new products at the show, and not one Android handset has been seen.

Wow.

Mobile World Congress 2009 was thought to be the real coming out party for Google's Android mobile platform. So far, it's a bust.

I'm curious about Android on general-purpose computers. Perhaps Android on netbooks is where it will take off, rather than handsets.

And the next question I have is, will Android be tivo-ized? How much GNU software has been stripped away from the kernel?
