A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a piece about CTIA in which I said that Android could be the next Windows Mobile.
Obviously, this story was read by Saul Hansell of the New York Times (although he did not comment on the post), because today he published an article in the Times saying pretty much the same thing.
Except he added fancy quotes from execs, analysts, and used things like “proper grammar” and “research.” Whatever (sentence fragment).
He also followed the piece up with a post to the New York Times Bits blog, where he didn’t really beat around the bush in asking if Google had made Android only to harm Microsoft and kill their business in mobile (which they tell me is the future).
So let’s not beat around the bush either. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Is Google only using Android as a tool to kill Windows Mobile? Is that being, errr.. evil on their part? Does Microsoft deserve it for having such an outdated product?
I know at least Ewan has an opinion on this one. Have at it.
