Different user levels (?)

Research

Mean of research

As a research topic

G1 Advantages/disadvantages

Leading applications created by Google / individuals, Wide range of apps, Comparison to other companies / solutions, Media representations / publishing, Software development for private / public use

Fully customized, personification (scientific, daily-life)

Organizer/communicator (everything in one place, emails)

New services (i.e. GPS based)

Growing developers community

Open system - risk of hacking?

Java specific API

No homogenized platform
