Google Google's big Android chief Andy Rubin has given an interview to PC Magazine, in which he touches on some interesting topics. Sadly, PC Magazine didn't ask about the patent situation and why Google is seemingly letting its OEMs fend for themselves, but there's still a lot of other interesting stuff in there.

Just like the world doesn't need more Android devices. One of the things that pushed me to get an iPhone was that there are way too many Android devices, and none of them seem to get it right. They are tarnishing a great platform, unfortunately. Just like Windows 7 and PC manufacturers, Windows 7 is good, but the PC OEMs make a mess by selling poor quality hardware and bucketful of crapware.

Indeed, sell me one phone with no branding and which is open and has guaranteed update support for 2 years and I am sold on it. The Nexus 1 is currently the only phone which comes close to that vision. Apple to some degree is as well with its iphon except for the open thing.
The others simply do not get it, or do not want to get it because it would mean sell less crappy phones and produce quality ones.
