Ever since Google Android was discussed at the 2007 Google Developer Day, and the conceptual structure of the GPhone was announced last year, mobile phone manufacturers, including Motorola, HTC, and Samsung, have been highly interested in manufacturing the GPhone.

The “GPhone” will be built with “Android” inside, which has had several issues with multi-language transformation and localization in different countries. It was confirmed to thirty-three manufacturers that the GPhone’s launch will be postponed to 2008 Q4 or 2009 Q1 after the stability of Android is greater.

Although the postponement was confirmed, some industrial analysts commented that GPhone will be the greatest opponent for iPhone after its launch.

Last Saturday June 14, 2008 Google Developer Day made its first appearance in Taiwan at the Taipei International Convention Center. Approximately 1,000 developers participated in this conference.

Unlike the first two Developer Days held in China and Japan, this event focused more on demonstrations of “OpenSocial” and “Google App Engine“.

Kai-fu Lee, Founding Chairman of Google China, proposed the theory on different generations and leaders on the Internet.

Li-feng Chien, Engineering Director of Google Taiwan, commented about the theory to Wikinews Journalist Rico Shen:

2008 Google Developer Day makes its inception in Taiwan
It’s evidently a good phenomenon in Taiwan that interactions on several critical topics and incidents between Internet users was more and more active, but in opposite way, it exposed weaknesses on community awareness and agglomerations. Therefore, community awareness will be the critical factor on the Internet not only in Taiwan.
