something to keep you busy!

Android is getting forked, left right center.

You can see various versions of Android for entry level phones.

This is why I believe Android One was a good move by Google.

Entry level phones running the latest Android version for developing countries.

When Android One was announced, I initially thought it’s a phone for my mom… She still uses basic Nokia phones as she needs battery life and the number pad.

Then I realized, my mom will not like an Android One device because she will need to charge it daily and she will need to (again) learn to use a mobile phone…

She doesn’t need a qwerty keyboard to reply “ok”.

Google (and its Android team) needs is to create a simple/lean version of Android to replace Series 40.

Just think of the Nokia 1 or 2 series, what if it had Wi-Fi, and every time you reach home you can send/receive messages/calls using Hangouts. You also get Chrome and Google Search.

It will be perfect for older folks who do not want to re-learn on how to use a phone.
