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.

Android is revolutionary, on many levels. I have a huge disgust for Apple, their products and their ways of dealing with competition. I am upfront with that.

But all this story was about was to explain how Nokia helped third world countries get cell phones, and how the Android platform is doing the same for smart phones.

Thankfully for Android, and Google, they have created an open platform to do this. You say it is not "open", and you are correct. There are many companies, not Google, that will not allow Google to open source some of the drivers, code and other pieces of Android.

Is that the fault of Google? If so, then the explain why? I just read a message from one of Google's top Android developers, and he explains alot in a little space.

Android is revolutionary, and it is surpassing Apple at every turn. Apple is now the platform that is playing catch up with Android. Look at the newly created "Face Unlock" patent that Apple applied for.

Instead of looking for ways to pick apart a story, read it first. This was an awesome story, and one I enjoyed reading, as well as posting to my Facebook and G+ Account.
