Off to Manhattan

I'm all packed up and ready to catch my early morning flight to Manhattan for the T-mobile press conference.

This will be my first ever trip to New York, and I'm really excited. It's not going to be a very long trip, so I doubt I'll have any time for site seeing. I'm hopeful that I'll at least be able to soak up the aura of the town a bit.

The world at large is going to get their first glimpse of the first Android phone. It will be interesting to see how people react to it. I hope it receives a warm reception. Many people (including myself) have waited almost a year for this unveiling.

It's going to be an action packed week, following the press conference, I'm off to Mountain View for 3 days to rub shoulders with some Google folk and try and put some more polish on ShopSavvy.

Android gaining momentum!

Judging by the number of job solicitations I've been receiving lately, I'd say that Android is building up some steam. Not surprisingly, most of them are for short contracts (6 months or less) on the west coast. However, if you jump back a couple months, there is virtually nothing on the radar.

Of course, since I just co-founded a new mobile development firm called Big In Japan with Rylan Barnes (author of GoCart) and Alexander Muse (evil startup mastermind), It's unlikely that I'll be entertaining offers anytime soon.
