PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Exactly six months ago, Eric Schmidt made a remark that in the near future, developers might want to focus on Android first, instead of iOS. While developers haven't moved to Android-first, iOS-later en masse, there's no denying that we're seeing more and more former iOS exclusives move towards Android.

Whether or not this prediction came true really depends on how you interpreted Smidth's words in the first place. Bloggers firmly in the iOS camp read it as "everything will be Android first, iOS later", while in my view, Schmidt's words are a lot less finite than that, thanks to terms like "will want to" and "perhaps".

so we now have similar situation like we have with Windows and Mac OS:
- applications will be made for Windows for sure and "perhaps" for Mac OS!

nice step forward for Apple ;)
