Got the chance to meet with Nik and get a braindump on the TechCrunch tablet project. The project is ambitious but I think that they did a good job scoping it down and they are making good progress on the hardware side. I also think that he has a good understand of some of the important issues around virtual keyboard, gestures and the importance of having not only a browser but something open and extensible. After listening to Nik, I got the feeling that he/they are trying to create a community to build android for the tablet.
Nik gave me an image of the software stack. I am going to try to get up to speed with it and see if there is anything I can do to help in there firefox vs. webkit decision.
PS: The TechCrunch “Offices” have one of the nicest Oak tree ever!
