a Windows Mobile device, the
photo Gizmodo just received looks quite similar to a Windows Mobile device
(mostly like the HTC S620) which is no wonder since HTC is part of
Open Handset Alliance.
According to Gizmodo's anonymous tipster, the OS (and device) - in its early
form - is light and fast, much faster than the desktop emulator at times. And as
a longtime programmer, he thinks it's a lot more put together than Window Mobile
on the back side of things.
No question, the device above is a prototype for developing purpose only and
things will obviously change but if Android wants to gain some market share (in
the consumer segment - as
HTC mentioned earlier too) it needs some more mass-market compatible
