The Android market is going through spectacular growth at the moment.
It's going bezerk!

The fact that it supports Flash and that its apps are written in Java
instead of Objective C like the iPhone (last I heard of that language
was in 1989!) made it extremely attractive to me but even without
writing specific Android apps the fact that it has a proper browser
means that wicket powered sites around the world will start to get
visited, a lot, by yet another browser type. They've also found that
Andtroid users, on average, pull down 25% more data per month on their
iPhone cousins - apparently they're a lot more tech savvy crowd - less
'Angry Birds' and more ServerSide etc.,

Coming from Java world my knowledge of JavaScript is very limited so I
don't know how helpful I'll be in debugging the Javascript as executed
on a Webkit/Android browser.

If anyone else out there has a wicket website and an Android phone I'd
like to know if you experience some of the problem I did. It only
appears to affect JavaScript - standard HTML form submission seems fine
- as expected.
