PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Google is growing increasingly concerned with Samsung's dominance of the Android - and smartphone - landscape. Supposedly, the topic is being openly discussed at Google, and as far as I'm concerned, that's great news.

I am not a "techy" as most of you guys seem to be, just the usual Linux zealot, but I love reading OS News and thought you might like to know how my female cousin (51 yro) selected her Lumia 920 just before Xmas here in Oz. She doesn't know what an "app" is. She walked into the Optus shop and said she wanted a new phone, the salesman told her the 920 was "the best" and she loved "the blue on the screen". That's how non-techy people seem to buy phones here. As an old guy I think the rise of Android has been great, as has the rise of Samsung with it, with potential rises from Ubuntu phone and maybe Firefox phone all using open protocols (or whatever the word is I should use) I see no problems, the only ones to worry may be Apple and Microsoft, that can't be all bad. BTW I got an N9 before they ran out about a year ago - love it. I will probably get a Moto-Goog if and when available. Thanks for reading.
