Fred says, “Watch Android”

Fred Wilson is one of those people that you’d be smart to follow and listen to. He’s one of the smartest and most approachable venture capitalists in the world, and his company is at the cutting edge of cool technologies and applications.

Fred’s speaking at the Web 2.0 Expo in New York later this month, and was asked three questions about conference content. One stands out as really significant, IMO:

2) What’s the most important, cool, scary, or useful product or technology that’s recently arrived or on the horizon?

Android powered phones, like T‑Mobile’s Dream, are really mind boggling to me. When you can put any software on them you want, when you can hack the phone, when you can connect it to any carrier, when you can connect to any other device, the potential for the mobile phone/computer is limitless. I think the iPhone pales in comparison to the disruptive potential of Android powered phones.

I’ve had good feelings about Android, but Fred is the first guy I trust who’s come out with such an endorsement. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to pay attention.
