The word from TWC

The word from TWC

Those Time Warner Cable subscribers who use Android have been hoping for an option that would allow them to watch streaming video from their handset. Well, there is some news on that front but we can't say it is a perfect solution. A tweet from the cable system's Director of Digital Communication in New York City, Jeff Simmermon, reveals that Time Warner expects to start streaming to Android devices at the end of the first quarter. Simmermon stresses that this is not a concrete launch date.

One part of the news that is not going to sit well with most TWC subscribers with Android is that the streaming video will only be available for those with an Android 4.0 powered device. At least Android users with Ice Cream Sandwich will be able to match those iOS users who already enjoy the streaming video service from Time Warner.

Definitely a marketing ploy by Google, make sure that app builders concentrate on apps for the 4.0 version of Android that will guaranteed adoption much faster than any other Android version. Good idea, hopefully it will work and ICS will overtake the other versions soon and then Android fragmentation will cease to be much of an issue...but with so many different chipsets out there, it's still not going to be easy to create apps that work flawlessly on every one of them OEM need to stop creating low end phones that don't have enough RAM to allow for updates to keep the phone relevant for at least 2 cycles.
