Google At the Google I/O conference, Google just held its second keynote address, which focussed on Android. The talk was held by Vic Gundotra, and he unveiled a number of new features coming in Android 2.2 "Froyo", as well as some features coming in Froyo+1. The main theme of the entire keynote? Openness and choice, and a whole bucketload of not-so-subtle jabs at Apple. I'd like to apologise upfront for a possible lack of critical notes in this article - I'm still handing out the brownie points to Google for yesterday.

"Can you consider BOGO as sales?"

Of *course*. Every single analyst counts them as sales, because they were paid for on contract, activated, and generate revenue. Only myopic Apple fans desperate to believe that Android hasn't surpassed their beloved iPhone in market momentum keep inventing ways to creatively deny reality.

"Just wait..."

OK.

Until iPhone's Phoenix-like resurgence, though, you might want to take a deep breath, accept the shocking truth, and let it go. It's just a phone.

Perhaps you should content yourself with the iPad's success. It's selling like gangbusters, probably playing no small role in depressing iPhone sales growth, and none of those nasty old Android tablets are shipping yet to spoil the fun.
