Jean-Baptiste Queru, a member of the Google Android Team, starts out a post in a July 11th posting on Google Groups with â€œIâ€™m going to get into trouble for this postâ€¦â€ So what was the top topic? The thread dealt with recent accusations of a lack of openness in Android.
Some Android developers launched a petition on Android Google Groups complaining that Google hadn’t updated the Android SDK since March 2008. Also a complaint is that Google hasn’t communicated about Android since Google I/O.
We understand your pain, we communicate it back up to our management, weâ€™re not happy about the situation either, weâ€™d love more openness too. And, just like anybody else, we donâ€™t like to read implications that weâ€™re lazy, or that weâ€™re liars, or that we donâ€™t care about you.â€ – Jean-Baptiste Queru
Is Google so hard at work on getting the platform out for a Q4 release that they are forgetting to talk about Android?
