,----[ Quote ]
| The same is true for the Google Android making its debut today. But in this
| case it’s the software stupid.

| the tools used to build applications or “stores,” their simplicity, and their
| openness.

| software environment that multiple hardware vendors and service providers are
| expected to embrace. Although Android isn’t fully baked, Google is
| aggressively promoting the operating environment to third party developers.
| The idea is to get developers on board early, so that tons of Android
| applications are ready when Android-compatible devices finally debut.
| [...]
| Eventually, The VAR Guy suspects, Android devices will easily leapfrog
| iPhone’s market share. But that’s not a terrible thing for Apple. Although

| you can thrive even when you hold less than 10 percent of a technology
| market.

| participation in Android will spur design wins and make it easier to
| incorporate their chips into the wave of Android handset introductions the
| market is likely to see later this year.
