Android developers receive $25k for projects
And the projects look pretty interesting. Google has an uneven history of supporting its projects, but the mix of open development, developer incentives, and the capabilities of the platform make me optimistic that this platform will be useful and used. Personally, I'm waiting to see the Android phones come to market in 3Q or 4Q before determining whether to go with an Android phone, iPhone, RIM, or other. But if even half of these described apps reach even half of their potential, Android is going to be well in the lead for my purposes.
