출처 : Google's Android platform: not so open after all
 
Google vowed that its Linux-based Android mobile platform would empower enthusiasts and
amateur developers, but today we have seen compelling evidence that this is an empty promise.
Third-party Android application developers, who have grown increasingly frustrated with the
lack of SDK updates, were shocked to discover that Google has been secretly making new
versions of the Android SDK available to the Android Developer Challenge (ADC) finalists under
non-disclosure agreements.
 
This was revealed yesterday when Google employee David McLaughlin accidentally sent
notification of a new SDK release to a public Android mailing list. The message, which was
intended only for ADC Round two entrants, says that SDK build 84853 is available through the
private ADC download site. McLaughlin later apologized for mistakenly sending the message to
the wrong list. ADC Round two participants have confirmed that they have access to updated SDK
builds but declined to provide further details because they are bound by non-disclosure agreements.
We have contacted Google and asked for additional details, but we have not yet received a response.
While most of the Android community was forced to use an outdated version of the SDK from
February and were left to wonder if they would ever see another SDK release at all, a small
assortment of 50 gagged developers were given priority access to much-needed improvements and
bug fixes that Google has apparently been keeping secret. This revelation has compelled some to
question the search giant's motives and wonder whether Google is really committed to making
Android an equal-opportunity platform for enthusiast developers. For many of the critics, Google's
secrecy and unwillingness to communicate is ultimately more troubling than the lack of SDK updates.
 
"I don't think the biggest issue here is who has and doesn't have access to the SDK. I think the main
issue here is communication or lack thereof. Google embraced the development community and
touted how they were going to build this platform with the help of the development community.
Somewhere along the line, this 'seemed' to change. I say seemed because this could have always
been part of Google's strategy," wrote third-party developer Ken Adair in a message to the Android
discussion list. "The problem is they have failed to nurture the relationship with the development
community. They have cut them off from the information that was once flowing and left them to speculate
and wonder. In response, you are seeing many that feel cheated and betrayed."
 
Non-disclosure agreements and selective access to development tools are hardly emblematic of an
open ecosystem. Google has intentionally disadvantaged many developers and kept the broader
Android community in the dark about the progress of the platform. Google's failure to fulfill its
commitment to openness has eroded one of the principle differentiating factors that made Android a
relevant alternative to Apple's iPhone operating system. If Google cannot change course, the lack of
transparency in the development process will likely push disenfranchised developers towards other
mobile platforms.

이 사항에 대해서는 눈꼽 만큼 디테일하게 알고 있지만 입이 봉해져있지요. 결국 제대로 된 방향으로 갈거라고 믿고 있습니다. 물론 애플과 심비안이 기다려줄때 이야기지만 머 아직은 시간이 있어보이니까요. 솔직히 P1 위너들은 베타테스터에 불과한듯 진짜 재밌는 것들은 P2에서 나올 것 같습니다. 그 때도 개발자들 제대로 끌어들이지 못하면 구글 GG져 머.

회색님 질문 한개 더 드릴께요..
혹시 아래의 emulator의 제약사항의 해결시점에 대해서도 고견 좀 부탁드립니다.~

In this release, the limitations of the emulator include:

No support for placing or receiving actual phone calls. You can simulate phone calls (placed and received) through the emulator console, however.
No support for USB connections
No support for camera/video capture (input).
No support for audio input (capture). Output (playback) is supported.
No support for device-attached headphones
No support for determining connected state
No support for determining battery charge level and AC charging state
No support for determining SD card insert/eject
No support for Bluetooth

가상의 주변장치 지원에 대해 제 의견 하나 댓글 달겠습니다.  Android의 Emulator가 Processor를 Emulation하는 이외에 Network, Video Hardware와 같은 필요한 모든 하위 시스템을 흉내내기위해서는  프랑스의 Fabrice Bellard 교수가 메인테인하고 있는 QEMU에 얼마나 많은 오픈소스 진영 개발자 및 회사들이 Contribute 하느냐에 따라 위에 말씀하신 구글의 Emulator의 제약사항 해결시점과 맞물리게 됩니다 (될것이다도 아니고, 됩니다.....)

디테일한 의견은 못드리고. 어떻게 보면 에뮬레이터에서의 하드웨어 제약은 당연한 것이기 때문에 실제폰이 하루빨리 나오기를 기다려야 하지 않을가요. 설령 저런것을 에뮬레이션해준다해도 아주 큰 의미는 없으니까요.
