Want to learn all about Google’s new mobile platform, Android? Google is running a one-day event at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square. The event is free but registration is limited. See the blog post and registration form.

I’m happy to see even the slightest hint of freedom in mobile software, although I think the best is yet to come in Android. Sure, they can have a nice Java application SDK, but in a world where most important apps are web apps, mobile phone programming will always be a second priority. Why not focus instead on building a really kickass mobile web browser, with something like Google Gears integrated in order to allow connectionless operation?

Maybe I’ll go and ask that question in person. ;)
