Man you guys gave me grief when I said the iPad was better than Android (specifically the Tab) because of software failures of Android on a tablet but how does it make you feel when Google confirms it? Google told TechRadar “Froyo is not optimized for use on tablets. If you want Android market on that platform, the apps just wouldn’t run, [Froyo] is just not designed for that form factor.” This also explains why the Galaxy is a giant phone – they view it as a phone and not a tablet. Anyway, Google is probably doing the right thing here so that people don’t think they’re getting a $250 iPad when they buy these Android tablets that aren’t optimized, but I really think they should have the balls to just prohibit it. What do you think?

  1. Thats just Google trying to maintain an “open” platform and giving the licenses away. They don’t care how the fragmented experience negatively affects users opinions they just want to see their reach grow. Their branding is a search/ad company and sadly their lack of restraint in giving the licenses away to OEMs is going to continue.
