Google's Tim Bray said the Nexus One will look like a toy in two years, added that fragmentation of Android wasn't a big concern among developers and the mobile operating system is making its way to the enterprise.

Those takeaways were from Christopher Dawson's interview with Bray. If you recall, Bray, a well-known blogger and creator of XML, joined Google as an Android developer advocate with a bit of a splash. Notably, Bray dinged the domination of Apple's iPhone and said it was worrisome.

Among the key points from the interview:

  • In two years, Nexus One's capabilities will look trivial. Bray was referring to the Moore's Law of smartphone development where phones take big leaps in functionality every two years or sooner.
  • He also said he hopes Palm makes it as a company because it is innovating.
  • Bray wasn't worried about Android fragmentation. It's just not a top 10 developer concern. A bigger issue is getting Android in more countries.
  • He reiterated he doesn't want to see Apple domination.
  • Android devices are making their way into the enterprise and could make Microsoft Exchange a soft target among small and mid-sized businesses.
