PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over at Daringfireball this past weekend, John Gruber put words to what many people are thinking about after Google's rush of Android announcements and not-subtle Apple-bashing at this week's I/O conference: "all-out war." I agree with Gruber that a good old-fashioned bitter rivalry could be a great thing for the computing world, and for smartphone/handheld fans in particular.

The author completely ignores what has been going on in the mobile market for years and just focus on the new trendy "technology" from Apple and Google.
Please don't take offense but I suppose the guy is american and think smartphones are something new created by Apple and extended by Google.
Mobile technology is not about Android and the iPad or trendy flashy gadgets. This may be what technology is about in California. But if you want to see the global picture, don't ignore the elephants in the room.
Up until now, Google and Apple have been playing catchup with the mobile industry. HP just entered the market with WebOS. If you want to see where the mobile industry is heading, you should look at the industry leaders first.
