Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

Google is still developing apps for iOS, and core experience ones no less, such as Gmail and Maps. The iOS Maps app is even nicer than the Android one. How would that fit with your view that Android is so important to Google?

I think Google could easily live in a world with Ubuntu dominating. They would just port their apps. What about Google Play, you say? Well, Appstore do not bring much money, even to Apple. Check their financial results.
