Google Yes, it's been a long road, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has achieved a major milestone. Just over half a year since it's been released, Google's latest Android version has crossed the all-important 7% installed base barrier. This is a major achievement for Android, so Google has reason to celebrate. I'm proud to be part of the 7.1%.

It does not take a fanboy pissfest to realize that all WP7 phones are, by design, extremely similar in looks and features, and that as such there could effectively be only one single Windows Phone OEM with two or three phones with the same results.

WP7, the way I see it, mainly competes with iOS, not Android. It doesn't try to address the issue of multiple form factors and wide pricing ranges like Android, Symbian, or increasingly s40 and Meltemi do.

Now, Windows 8 and WP8 could be more interesting, since Microsoft are now attempting to get their OS on a wider range of hardware by imposing firmware standardization on ARM OEMs. If it turns to work, then hopefully Android and other ARM OSs will also benefit from it in the long run.
