Legal Blah blah Apple whines about a bunch of software patents again. Go cry in a corner, Jobs. Either find a strategy that counters the rise of Android, or just suck it up and be a man about it. Oh, HTC is the target this time around. Again. Whatever.

Which means NOTHING given it doesn't take into account the ability and willingness to spend money on applications/games - there is study after study showing that Android users have the lowest rate when it comes to willingness to purchase games/applications. Sorry, a platform longevity cannot just run on scented clouds of loveliness but whether it attracts applications to enhance the platform from merely a phone into a hand held device that has phone capabilities along side a whole host of others.

2008 called, they want your argument back.

The Android Market is PACKED with applications. Your argument is invalid.

Oh how cute; how about checking the study just recently in regards to the 'Angry Birds' creator - oh thats right, anything that shakes your convictions that Android will steam roll the market you simply ignore in favour of whining about iOS and the 'evils' of the 'walled garden'.

Do you:
- work with consumer mobile technologies?
- are a consultant in consumer mobile space?
- own a consumer oriented mobile tech company?

If neither, than I suggest you read a bit of what VentureBeat has to say and I am seeing first hand - selling apps is a dead end business already. Thanks to Apple for driving the mobile app price down into the gutter.
