PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over at Daringfireball this past weekend, John Gruber put words to what many people are thinking about after Google's rush of Android announcements and not-subtle Apple-bashing at this week's I/O conference: "all-out war." I agree with Gruber that a good old-fashioned bitter rivalry could be a great thing for the computing world, and for smartphone/handheld fans in particular.

Android and iPhone OS aren't exactly niche at this point.

Depends on how you define a niche. What I mean to say is that they are small when compared to the elephants in the room and yet they get all the attention while the others get ignored. Conclusion are drawn on the future of the mobile industry based on their development alone, which is an heresy.

I think that I finally get where you are coming from. You are a Nokia fan and you want to see Nokia's work acknowledged. You are bitter that Android and iPhone OS are stealing the limelight.

Wrong, wrong and wrong. You got it all wrong. I don't know what makes you think that, but it's just not true. I mentioned Apple 4 times, Android 4 times, Nokia 3 times, Samsung 3 times and LG once. Not only is that all wrong, it's useless and inappropriate ad hominem.
