PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Like LG, Sony's smartphone division is now also doing quite well:

In the three months between April and June of this year, Sony saw both a "significant increase in unit sales" of its Android smartphones and an improved average selling price per handset. That's at the heart of the company's improved profitability.

The common parlance that only Samsung is profiting off Android is, as I've said before, simply no longer true. All it took for companies like LG and Sony to become profitable with Android is to, you know, stop making crap phones, and start producing good ones.

Shocker.

There is no way you could have been reading my comment if you think I was recommending Windows Phone as an alternative.

Further, I don't need to argue that absent Android things would be worse or similar. All I need to argue is that Android is not benefiting anyone outside of Samsung (and even then it is arguable).
