Google’s foray in the phone operating system industry is booming. The growth of Android, along with the abundance of “DROID” advertising, has helped launch itself into the forefront of consumers who seek an alternative to the white walled garden, and of AT&T. While Android’s speed of development has been great, there is definitely one area that can be improved upon still: media. I’m not just talking Android’s lackluster default media player (at least we have alternatives), but the way you obtain, organize, and manage your music and videos. Now, I don’t believe Android NEEDS an iTunes equivalent, as I’m quite contempt with manually transferring my media, but it would make some things easier.
The fact that Google is looking to launch Google Music with their next update, code-named Gingerbread – aka, Android 3.0 , gives us a good indication that they wants to be your go-to gadget for tunes. On top of that, Google TV is making great strides with it’s partnership with Logitech, showing off a Harmony Remote app for Android.
While many details are not yet known to us yet, the fact that Google is looking to launch Google Music, and Google TV means even tighter integration with Android. So stop playing the Angry Birds beta for just a second and take a stroll with me to the possible future….
- Management and organization of your media with the database powers of Google’s search
- One stop access to downloading music, TV, & movies
- Google TV integration for transferring TV shows & Movies to your phone or tablet
- Wireless/Wifi Syncing of new media content
