Can we implement enterprise wide applications on Android?

As per my thinking "NO".

Wat do you guys say?

What type of applications we can deploy on Android?

Why would you want to deploy such applications on a phone? Do you want to use your phone as a mobile server?

Well, if you are a developer that travels a lot it would be easier to test some JSP/servlet code or any other kind of code very quickly on your mobile device, and then show it to customers if you would like.

Furthermore, if you are developing .mobi websites locally, it would be great to do it and test it on your phone.

You can access other enterprise applications from with in your Android phone, provided it meets the security policy setup in your network where the application resides.

As far as running an enterprise wide application from with in Android, i would say it is a over kill.

I would say yes, Android would be great for internally developed applications that are run by employees that have the device.

In fact Android is much better for this than iPhone. If you did such an app on the iPhone you'd have to get Apple's approval and place it in the App store for your employees to download. Not so on Android - just make a .apk file and plop it on a web site for your folks to install.

You could even make your application run completely within your firewall if you have secure WiFi deployed on the premises. If you want it to run over the phone company's network or the WiFi at Starbucks then you'll need the appropriate security of course.

But considering that there is only 80M space available, Would the phone be able accommodate an application server?

yes its true we only have 70 megs but an Eclipse eRCP tuned for Android be just the right size.

You would not need a full J2ee server just some bits and pieces on top of OSGi..
