Why Android Rocks India?
Sunday, 21 January 2018 04:02

Mobile is the future. Mobile is for the masses. Mobile will change the face of India. Hard to imagine? Consider this. Indian Mobile (Telecom in general) users are set to overtake US by next month, and maybe china shortly. Mobile usage in India is growing at an unbelievably high rate and its not going to slow down anytime in future. So there's tons of reasons for us to feel great.

Lets talk about the Indian companies and their thrift mentalities:

A. Indian companies never like to spend money on software.

B. Indian companies hire hoards and hoards of average programmers.

Lets talk about Android. And why it Rocks!

1. Android is free, open-source. So we don't have to go buy expensive hardware/software to run it. We don't have to join any legion like some other mobile SDK's demand or show our affinity endlessly and become a die-hard fanboi just to get our hands on an SDK. Compare Android with iphone, we cannot even run iphone because we don't have anything to with Apple yet. Android development can be done on Linux/Windows/Mac without issues.

2. Android is Java based. This is the killer feature, IMHO. We don't have to go scouting for the superstars like in the Ruby world. We can be happily coding with average programmers. And you know what, this is a big deal for small startups in India.

Match A,B with 1,2 above. Android wins, on both counts!

Imagine this.When the bored housewife in some rural remote Indian village who is completely isolated from the supposedly mainstream urban India whips up her shiny new Android powered mobile phone gifted by her hard working farmer husband and downloads fancy meals to cook for her love..

We know Android Rocks!!
