It looks like AOL has revamped its mobile site and also launched an Android App. There is no iPhone App. This is interesting.
I spoke yesterday by phone with David Temkin, the new VP of Mobile for AOL, and asked why the company chose Android over the iPhone. “Momentum is the key reason,” Temkin said, and I have to agree with him. Even with a record quarter of iOS4 devices, Google is on pace to have more Android activations than Apple will this year.
It’s good to see Android getting more priority from developers. But no matter what, most developers will eventually have to develop at least three versions (Android, iPhone, HTML5) which will not be easy. Later on, developers will also have to build another version for tablets. It’s not easy being a service provider these days.
