Google A few days ago I dove into the lawsuit filed by Skyhook against Google, and came to the conclusion that Skyhook's case - while an entirely plausible sequence of events considering Google is a big company and hence prone to abuse - simply wasn't a very good one. Google's CEO Eric Schmidt has given a rather generic-looking statement on the matter, but however generic it may be, there's a hint in there.

What exactly is needed to qualify as a "smartphone OS" in your opinion?

Symbian just feels like a dumbphone OS to me, compared to Android and BlackBerry. It's a great OS and I'm not knocking it, it's just a personal opinion. Granted, I haven't used Symbian^3 yet; my experience is limited to S60 which is by far the most popular version of Symbian.

I happen to feel the same way about iOS for different reasons; it is chintzy and dumbed down, but it has apps so the world calls it a "smartphone OS". I personally don't think it qualifies either but it's not my call.

Ah, the old "feels like". When everything else fails, fail more.
