Android vying to target businesses

According to a senior executive, Google plans to include features that would help businesses who give phones to their employees, to work on-the-go. In an interview, Andy Rubin, vice president of engineering at Google said, “Today, we don’t support many enterprise applications but in the future, I think enterprise will be a good focus for us”.

Currently, the king of this market is Rim’s BlackBerry. But according to Rubin, Google can easily compete with the company, with the help of its Google apps like email, documents and calendars.

Rubin further added that he is aiming for integrating social services deep into the operating system. According to him, phone communication should function with people being the pivot point, instead of photos, contacts and birthdays of a single person being stored at different files and folders.

After Windows Mobile and Apple, Google is planing to give a touch time to Balckberry, which mainly focuses business customers. So Android users, who want business functionalities at rates far less than Blackberry, gear up for your dream machines.
