I was about to toss my eWeek into the recycling and the pages flipped open and my eye caught a sentence in the review of the GalTab and Dreak:
"Unlike Apple's iOS with the company's comparatively easy access to FaceTime video conferencing, Android users will likely need to wait until 3rd party developers start exploiting the hardware for their own video apps"
It was a Jerry-Sees-GratefulDead-In-The-Dictionary moment.
Yeah, eWeek is another iLoveJobs rag and like them all it will ignore anything good unless it came from 'Tino but this one seemed way over the top. But then I thought about it.. there really aren't that many apps out ther taking advantage of the video hardware and if that continues then Android FFCs will likely stop being part of the spec.
But is this because devs are stupid or that the platform is harder than iOS? As to the former, sure ;-), but definitely not the latter...[more]
