PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It all started with Apple/TechCrunch blogger M.G. Siegler making a huge fuss over something he didn't understand, and while that in and of itself isn't particularly interesting, one of the outcomes of this little internet drama is a comment on Google+ (the tenth one) that so perfectly encapsulates just how important Android is for the world that I felt the need to share it with you. It's the holiday season after all.

As others have said here. I want to see a "poor" person take Android and use it without having to buy a device and still spend money.

Last I looked the 3GS which is better then any low cost Android phone was free with a contract. The companies (At least in the US, can't speak for the world) that have the most easy access to "poor" people, sell their crappy Android phones for sky high prices ($150 minimum) Like Boost mobile, Metro PCS and Cricket.

In reality the only thing that is revolutionary is that Google is the only company other then Red Hat who figured out how to monetize Linux.

Oh yeah and here we are again blowing off Apple like having the CEO of Google on Apples board didn't shape the direction they took at all. Or that giving Android away is any different then giving away Gmail.

But hey OSnews got a lot of hits today. LOL!
