|All of us in the Android space are new, even the longest established carriers and manufacturers are “new at android”, let alone startups, freelance developers, the developers and the business leaders and marketers.
We want to clearly spell out, ahead of time, for anyone seeking to make something with Android in the World, what they will anyways learn by force. If we can, we prefer to avoid them the cost of that learning curve. Contrary to what most people think, they really are not aware of dealing with the nuances of international markets. We will provide examples of our own cases so that the audience takes actionable ideas from it and can help to better promote and market Android globally.
