Hey Google Androidian of Washington! Over 20,000 Apps For Your Android Phone Out There

I heard about Google Android phone (an iPhone competitor) over a year ago and, I ended up buying one:-) Awesome phone BTW!

Then, I heard about Google Wave (an email, SMS, twitter, and facebook competitor). I tried to get a beta account, not much luck. It is due to be released next year.

Then, it came Google Voice and recently their 911 call functionality. I got that that one too 🙂

It is obvious where Google is heading. It seems to me, they plan to take on everyone – Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo, my fat Mama, and telecom companies. Well, taking on Apple, Yahoo, and Microsoft has been going on for past several years or so. Taking on the telecom companies where my educational and half of professional background is from, WOW! That is amazing! Thanks to the power of Internet and Voice over IP.

Certainly, 2010 is going to be an awesome year for Google – particularly for their Android operating system. Because, there are now 20,000 apps available for you to download from their AndroLib site and it is growing fast. Based on all other goodies they offer compare to their competitors, I won’t be surprised in a few years Apple gets out of mobile phone business, Microsoft shuts down their newly launched Bing decision search engine, AOL and half of present telecom service providers close down for good. It will be fascinating to watch their war with iPhone of Apple. Note that Apple is just about a mobile phone and computer operating system, computer, and internet browser. Google has a couple of those items plus search, google wave and google voice. You own the search and telecom, you own the world. Besides, Google Android is now on many more handset than Apples’.

What’s even more fascinating, is how Google took many of the other traditional mobile phone companies and their operating systems providers like Windows Mobile and Symbian totally off guard and quick. I think they did a fantastic job playing Trojan Horse of the 21st Century.
