Google Cuts Popular Google Talk, Bluetooth From Android OS
 
I'm more disappointed on having the Bluetooth API being chopped out then Google Talk.


Google's new phone OS, Android OS, is backed by some of the industry's biggest players. While some carriers are reticent to the prospect of switching from their proprietary software, in which they have invested millions, Google brings much to the table with Android.

First Android is free. Secondly it provides a broad array of APIs to connect users to the internet and to perform graphical functions. Lastly, the OS comes with numerous Google programs, all free, such as Google Maps, GMail, and Google Docs.

However, with the release of the 0.9 beta SDK, an updated version of the OS's previewed SDK, Google unfortunately decided to cut out a couple of desirable features. Google acknowledged that both Google Talk, its popular IM program, and its Bluetooth API were on the chopping block.
