PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It all started with Apple/TechCrunch blogger M.G. Siegler making a huge fuss over something he didn't understand, and while that in and of itself isn't particularly interesting, one of the outcomes of this little internet drama is a comment on Google+ (the tenth one) that so perfectly encapsulates just how important Android is for the world that I felt the need to share it with you. It's the holiday season after all.

Way to take out the context of that quote.

Nothing was taken out of context. To pretend that the iPhone wasn't a huge catalyst is just silly.

I never said that it wasn't a catalyst. Read more carefully.

We're at an impasse and will just have to disagree, as to me this is a pretty clear dismissal of the impact the iPhone has had. The iPhone's success, and its huge influence on the industry, obviously impacts the rest of the world and not just "rich countries," even if only for the fact that other smartphones mimic it.
