Google announces Android

While Apple has been taking some heat lately because it keeps the iPhone very closed, Google today announced the Open Handset Alliance and Android, an open source platform for mobile devices.

Google has a blog post about the announcement and Engadget has a transcript of the announcement conference call.

It's not clear to me what the relation is between today's announcement and Google's acquisition of a company called Android more than two years ago.

It will be interesting to see how Microsoft (Windows Mobile) and Apple (iPhone) react.
