Summary of 'The Android Platform: a new kind of Linux'

Google's new Android platform is Linux, but not as you know Linux.  And it
is Java, but not Sun's Java.  Come get an overview of how it is different,
what you can do with it, how open it really is, and where it is going.
Besides many mobile phones in the pipeline, there are announcements of
devices like GPS, netbook, media players, etc.  We'll also quickly discuss
using Java or Ajax/HTML5 for development, and hopefully whet your interest
in this fun new platform.

Pre meeting food

Please join us informally for a bite to eat at Panera Bread before the
meeting, around 5:30 P.M.  Panera is in the 29th street mall, east of
Highway 36/28th street near Walnut.
