Ausdroid on SBS News about Android in Australia

Last week, I was interviewed for SBS Television by Bill Code. Bill was working on a piece on the growth of Android in Australia, compared to Apple’s iPhone and other smart phones.

Of course, we jumped at the chance to have our two cents about Android’s growth, and tonight the story went to air. Although a little embarrassing to watch myself on TV, it was a good story and I think the quotes selected by Bill for the story were bang on the money. I think this story states the obvious in many ways – that is, Android’s growth is just unassailable and I think the future for Android is very, very bright.

Youtube video after the break, and there’s a link to a similar piece by Bill on SBS’ website here.

I’m surprised the interviewer could interview that bird from Trendhaus without punching her in the face.

Nice article Chris, my only comment is couldn’t you have borrowed a Galaxy S2?

That was (in part) my fault – I only had a day or so’s notice to get things together for the interview, and I couldn’t source a decent Android handset in time for the interview. This is something we’re going to address so we’re better prepared in future.

Well done Chris, I think it’s great that Android is on the rise here in Aus! I’m sure that there are many people that dislike the strictness of IOS, I know I am one. Dare I say “The King is dead, long live the King”?

You did a great job, I didn’t realise Android was so close to Apple sales in AU. I’m seeing more and more every day on the train but didn’t realise it was that close.

Great performance Chris! Good to see you guys getting these sort of publicity – you deserve it after all your efforts in getting this site off the ground.

Haha well done!

The segment was actually pretty good. However, you did look like you were a little nervous.

Not sure if you were, but it just looked like it.

Grats on getting on TV!

Not surprising, because I was a bit more than a little nervous 😉
